Having fun with Super Bowl prop bets

Having fun with Super Bowl prop bets

One of my favorite parts of the Super Bowl is hearing about the prop bets that arrive before the big game.

This year is no exception.

If you have a feeling Beyonce will be covered up in the SuperDome for her first song's performance, you might be able to make some money.

According to Pregame.com's RJ Bell, you can bet on whether or not Beyonce will show cleavage during the first song of her halftime show. Yes has an 80-percent chance. And no, I'm not joking.

And which song will she perform first? "Crazy in Love" and “Love on Top” are co-favorites.

Will both Harbaugh brothers (John and Jim) be wearing hats? Yes has a 90-percent chance.

The over/under for the longest touchdown of the game is 45.5 yards.

And if you have a really good feeling about the Ravens, you can put down $100 and take $900 if they win by two touchdowns or more.

The early money in favors the AFC champion Ravens. The 49ers opened up as five-point favorites but as of Thursday, 65 percent of bets had gone for the Ravens and the line dropped to 3.5 points. The over/under is 47.5.

According to Bell, it's estimated that $10 billion will be wagered on the Super Bowl with less than one percent of those bets taking place legally in Vegas. Over half of adult Americans will bet on the game.
