The Super Bowl is one of the most watched and bet on sporting events in the world, and Las Vegas is a buzz with energy this time of year.  When the Seahawks defeated the 49’ers to complete the Super Bowl Sunday showdown, the initial spread on the game was a mere point in favor of the Broncos.  It hasn’t moved much from there as these two teams are so well matched up against each other.

One of the more interesting and fun parts of betting on the Super Bowl is the prop betting that happens.  Super Bowl XLVIII is still about two weeks away, but has released a entire compilation of prop bets that you can choose from to fill out your entire Super Bowl experience.  There are a ton (over 500), but here are some of the highlights of some of the more fun and just flat out bizarre.

Weather bets:

Betting on the weather isn’t really new to prop betting on the Super Bowl, but there’s an added twist this year since the game takes place in New Jersey.  I think anyone who think it will be anything over 30 degrees is crazy.

What will be the temperature at Kickoff?  

Over 34 degrees Fahrenheit                -120    

Under 34 degrees Fahrenheit              -120    

What will be the lowest temperature during the game?    

Over 31 degrees Fahrenheit                -120

Under 31 degrees Fahrenheit              -120

Pre-game antics

The pre-game bets are always fun to try.  This is a particularly good one.

Will Knowshon Moreno cry during the signing of the National Anthem?

Yes                  +400

No                    -700
