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 SportsInteraction.com, our top rated betting site for Canadians. I’ll give my pick for each 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 54.

Length of National Anthem
- Over 124.5 seconds (1.71)
- Under 124.5 seconds (1.95)
To start off the broadcast Demi Lovato will be singing the USA National Anthem. The over/under is set at 2 minutes and 4.5 seconds, which is much higher than the total was last year when Gladys Knight had the over/under set at one minute and 45 seconds. Gladys Knight hit the over last year with a rendition that was about 2 minutes and 1 second long. That said, Pink did go under the previous year with a time of 1 minute and 53 seconds.
Demi Lovato did sing the national anthem for the Mayweather vs McGregor fight back in 2018, so there is some recent footage that we can draw on to have a better idea of how long her rendition may be at this years Super Bowl. In that instance she sang the anthem in around 2 minutes and 10 seconds. Watching that performance it doesn’t even really seem like she’s reaching to lengthen notes, so I think she may even go longer at the Super Bowl.
The trend is there for long Anthems at the Super Bowl, and it’s expected for National Anthem singers to put their own spin on things and lengthen the song even if it’s not through holding notes. I expect Lovato to take advantage of her moment and put together a rendition that lasts longer than 124.5 seconds.
Half Time Show – First Song
The Half-Time show will be co-headlined by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. I’ll be honest, I have absolutely no clue what these two superstars will open their show with and by the looks of the odds it’s truly anyone’s guess.
Winning Coach Gatorade Shower
- Lime/Green/Yellow 3.40
- Orange 3.80
- Water/Clear 2.90
- Blue 5.00
- Red 5.95
Last year Bill Belichik was doused with a blue gatorade shower after winning the big game. Two years ago, Eagles coach Doug Pederson was splashed with green gatorade. The oddsmakers are once again out with gatorade celebration props and the odds are very similar to last years.
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.
As you can see there are some pretty outrageous prop bets available for the Super Bowl. I’ve included just three, there are a ton more you can check out at SportsInteraction.com.
