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 massive selection of prop betting options for Super Bowl 57. 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 57.
Length of National Anthem
- Over 2 minutes 6.5 seconds (1.74)
- Under 2 minutes 6.5 seconds (1.95)
To start off the broadcast Chris Stapleton will be singing the USA National Anthem. The over/under is set at 2 minutes and 6.5 seconds, which is the highest the Anthem total has been since Super Bowl 51. Last year the total was only 1 minute and 35 seconds for Mickey Guyton, but her rendition easily hit the over at 1 minute and 55 seconds. Jazmine Sullivan & Eric Church’s duet at Super Bowl 55 lasted 2 minutes and 16 seconds, so the over is definitely in play as well.
I’m not very familiar with Chris Stapleton’s singing style, but this total seems pretty accurate. The last male country singer to perform the National Anthem was Luke Bryan 2017 and his rendition lasted 2 minutes and 4 seconds.
Purely based on Luke Bryan’s anthem length, I would go with the over on this prop.
Here are the other Anthem props available at SIA (odds taken February 9th):
Half Time Show – Rihanna Appearance
The Half-Time show will be headlined by Rihanna this year. You can bet on which song Rihanna will start the half-time show with from her huge catalogue of hits, as well as several props relating to Rihanna’s appearance (hair colour, dress colour, etc.) and other aspects of the show such as if there will be surprise guests.
Here are the odds for Rihanna’s dress/shirt primary colour (odds taken Feb. 9th):
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.

Winning Coach Gatorade Shower
Last year Sean McVay was doused with a blue gatorade shower after winning the big game. That cashed in at odds of around 3-1. Two years ago, Bruce Arians also received a blue gatorade shower at odds of +650. Blue has been the gatorade colour for the coach shower in three of the past four seasons.

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 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.
