Super Bowl 58 Novelty Prop Bets (Super Bowl Specials)

It’s always a lot of fun betting on some of the more weird and wacky prop bets that sportsbooks offer for the Super Bowl.  Every year it seems like the bookies try to outdo each other with more off-the-wall prop bets.  I think these type of bets add an extra layer of excitement outside of the actual football game and in certain cases they can even provide some good value as a wager.

Below I will look at a few of the novelty Super Bowl prop bets offered by one of our recommended sportsbooks that has a solid selection of prop betting options for Super Bowl 58.  I’ll give my pick for some of the props, but I do not advise placing a bet based on my picks because I do not have any inside information on any of these props.  This article is instead meant to show you some of the more interesting non-game related bets you can make on Super Bowl 58.

Length of National Anthem

  • Over 90.5 seconds -110
  • Under 90.5 seconds -110

To start off the broadcast Reba McEntire will be singing the USA National Anthem.  The over/under is set at 1 minute and 30.5 seconds, which is the lowest the Anthem total has been in at least 18 years (I found Anthem totals dating back to Super Bowl 41). Last year the total was 1 minute 59.5 seconds and Chris Stapleton still went over. In fact, the over has hit the last three Super Bowls, including Mickey Guyton significantly hitting the over with a performance of 1 minute 55 seconds when her total was similar to McEntire’s at 1 minute 35.5 seconds.

There are a few examples online of Reba McEntire singing the National Anthem at other events. She’s generally performed the Anthem at a fast pace, which is why her total is low compared to past performers. McEntire performed the National Anthem in 83 seconds at the 1997 World Series and in 80 seconds at a celebrity softball game in 2017.

Purely based on McEntire’s past performances, I would go with the under on this prop.

Here are the other Anthem props available at Bet99 (odds accurate as of February 9th):

Half Time Show – Usher Performance

The Half-Time show will be headlined by Usher this year. You can bet on which song Usher will start the half-time show with from his huge catalogue of hits, as well which show he will end with, how many songs will be performed, whether he will wear sunglasses, and other aspects of the show such as if there will be surprise guests.

Here are the odds for what song Usher will open the Halftime Show with (odds taken Feb. 9th):

**The screenshot only includes the ten favourites. has a huge list with all of Usher’s hit songs with various odds. Select ‘Super Bowl 58 Halftime Show Specials’ under the ‘Super Bowl Specials’ heading on the Bet99 Football page to see the full list.

Coin Toss

The coin toss is one of the most popular bets every Super Bowl. It doesn’t get much more novelty than betting on the flip of a coin. is taking coin toss bets with no vig for this years Super Bowl:

Winning Coach Gatorade Shower

Last year Andy Reid was doused with a purple gatorade shower after winning the big game. That cashed in at odds of around 10-1 (depending on when you bet the prop). Two years ago, Sean McVay received a blue gatorade shower at odds of around 3-1. Blue has been the gatorade colour for the coach shower in three of the past five seasons, but the fact that Purple was the Chiefs winning colour last season has bettors believing it will be the same colour if the Chiefs win the game again this year.

Here are the odds for this years Gatorade shower colour from (odds taken February 9th):

I personally like taking the water/clear bet on this prop because I just don’t like the thought of the coaches having to go through all of the on field interviews and trophy presentation covered in a sticky liquid.  At least if it’s water (clear) the coach is just wet, not wet and sticky. That said, the gatorade shower has not been clear in over 10 years, so it’s probably not a great bet.

As you can see there are some pretty outrageous prop bets available for the Super Bowl.

  1. Hows it going Niko
    So I’ve been wagering on The Sports Betting Interaction as you mentioned above. ( i’m probably with them because you mentioned them some years back). Anyway, I find a limited amount of parlay bets available under player props. Like we can’t bet on an over under passing AND a rushing yards wager plus another like first td scored etc. So odds always stay low. Like the examples you give above. Can I put all those on one card? If not, then 10 bucks gets us back a measly, 19.50 rather than x3 etc.

    1. Hey Derek,
      You won’t be able to parlay a lot of the player props because the bets can be correlated. For example, if Mahomes passes for over 329.5 yards there’s a good chance he also throws for more than 28.5 completions. Because some props can be correlated I think SIA just doesn’t allow parlays for the majority of their Super Bowl props.
