Our Top 10 Ludicrous Super Bowl Bets to Date

Are you looking to find the craziest or strangest prop bets ever placed on a Super Bowl game? Here we will be running through our favorite Super Bowl prop bets from the past decade, picking our favorites, ranging from David Tyree getting a shoutout, to how long the word “brave” will be held for during the singing of the national anthem.

1. Jersey number to score first

Back in 2012, the over/under for the jersey number to score first for either team was 80.5. This might seem like a pretty high number, but during that Super Bowl game, Eli Manning had 2 wide receivers, Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham, with jersey numbers above 80.5.

Imagine how devastated you would have been if you had bet on the first player to score to have a jersey number above 80.5, and it was Victor Cruz to have done so. Victor Cruz wears the number 80 on his jersey and did, in fact, open the scoring for the New York Giants.

2. David Tyree helmet catch

If the New England Patriots face off in a Super Bowl against the New York Giants, then you should almost certainly place a bet on one of the commentators mentioning David Tyree’s spectacular 2018 catch that he made with his helmet. It was absolutely incredible.

Back in 2008, David Tyree’s crazy catch helped set the New York Giants on a path to Super Bowl glory. Eli Manning’s driving run might have been what won it in the final seconds of the game, but it was David Tyree and that magical helmet of his that made it possible.

3. Peyton Manning shown on live TV

2012 was a funny old year. Despite Peyton Manning having no involvement in the game, much of the fanfare running up to the Superbowl was around Peyton Manning’s supposed fall-out with Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay. This resulted in Manning leaving the Colts.

A Vegas bookmaker ran a bet of how many times Peyton Manning would be shown on live TV with an over/under of 3.5. With the amount of media attention paid to the situation between the quarterback and the then-owner Jim Irsay, the over bet would have been smart.

4. Number of chicken wings sold

The term wings might usually be used to refer to NFL teams that feature some kind of bird on their badge or in their name, but there has been a trend of bookmakers running bets on how many chicken wings would be sold by Buffalo Wild Wings during the Superbowl.

Chicken Wings are, of course, an American favorite, with them being a staple in millions of households and bars during the football season, especially during the Super Bowl. During Super Bowl 40 there were a total of 12 million wings sold, increasing from 11 million in 2015.

5. Ending on a high?

This bet was an interesting one as it involved both the NFL and the NBA. Super Bowl 50, played in 2016, was the final match that the legendary Peyton Manning would be involved in and so bookmakers were keen to capitalize on the emotion of it by putting on a special bet.

The bet would payout if Peyton Manning and legendary San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan both ended their respective seasons as champions. It looked like a safe bet; Tim Duncan was a 2014 NBA champion, though it wasn’t to be with him losing in the semifinals.

6. Players in handcuffs?

The New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons have a fractious relationship and are 2 of the biggest NFL teams in the country, each followed by millions of devoted supporters. There was a bet offered before Super Bowl 51 that would payout if any player was arrested.

The bet was offered with 15 to 1 odds and could have been worth a punt, given that both teams had players on the roster that seemed to enjoy a little bit of controversy. Thankfully, unless you placed that bet, no players were arrested in the run-up to the big game.

7. Would you bet on an earthquake?

Super Bowl 50 was played in Santa Clara, and as a result of California being earthquake country, one bookmaker ran a bet that would payout if an earthquake occurred during the live broadcasting of the game. Would you have placed the bet with the odds being 15 to 1?

While this might sound like a crazy bet that would almost never payout, this did happen during the live broadcasting of the 1989 World Series clash between the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics. Thankfully, there were no acts of God that happened during play in the Super Bowl 50.

8. Katy Perry’s left shark

Katy Perry’s Super Bowl 49 performance was as iconic as they come with the singing and dancing sharks that accompanied her onstage still being common pop culture references even today. Are you surprised to learn that you could have bet on them cameoing during Super Bowl 50 too? The odds were at a tempting 10 to 1, but, sadly they were a no-show.

9. How long will the national anthem be sung for?

During the most recent Super Bowl, played in 2021, you could have bet on the amount of time that would have elapsed between the first and last note of the national anthem. With singers commonly putting their own spin on the song, would you have placed this bet?

It can be a risky one to go for and given that Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan are very different in their styles. This one would have been almost impossible to predict. You could have also bet on who would’ve finished it and how long “brave” would have been held for.

10. The Weeknd’s jacket

Betting on clothing is always a risky bet, and with The Weeknd being an unpredictable character, this bet coming in was definitely going to be a matter of luck. Given that he wore red during the VMA and AMA performances, red would have been the educated guess.

While he did end up wearing red, it wouldn’t have been crazy to have placed a bet on something else. Black was at +110, red was at +175, blue and white were each at +300, and purple was at a very tempting +500. Would you have bet on him wearing anything else?
