Unique bets at the SuperBowl

Admittedly, I’m not a huge football fan.  But today, in hangin’ with a friend that is into betting on the Bowl, I learned the extent and creativity of online betting that makes the game infinitely more interesting.  It got me wondering why they don’t make gambling legal – but that’s a whole other post.  Anyway, here were some of my favorite bets from tonight’s game (and congrats Pitt!)

Will the coin toss happen with the left or right hand?
Will the coin toss be caught or will it hit the ground?
Will the National Anthem be sung in less than 1:47, starting with the word “O”?
During the pre-game ceremonies, will there be less or more than 3.5 aircraft flying overhead?
Will John Madden refer to Ben Rothlesburger as “Big Ben” before the half way point of the first quarter?
What song will Bruce Springstein sing first in the half time show?
Who will make the first first down of the game?
Will there be a safety of the game?  (50 to 1 odds!  And yes, there was…)
Will there be a Gatorade shower?
What color will the Gatorade shower be?
Will the Gatorade shower be before or after the last 1 minute of the game?
Will the Gatorade shower hit or miss the coach?

I had no idea betting went this far or could be this fun!  Looking forward to the next Superbowl..
