There are a tremendous number of ways to make money by betting on the Super Bowl, but here at Bankroll Sports, we are going to take some time to look at some of the props that you might find useful to bet on if you aren’t even a fan of football! Check out these Super Bowl halftime props and other exotic Super Bowl props that are available at SportBet Sportsbook!

How Long Will Kelly Clarkson’s National Anthem Be?
Virtually every single year, the ‘over’ is the right way to go on this one. These tremendous singers who are bona fide stars are still a bit struck by the whole situation of playing the national anthem at the Super Bowl, and as a result, there are a few more seconds tacked on to what should be a song that takes about 75-80 seconds to sing. However, after last year’s debacle with the Star Spangled Banner, there is no way that Clarkson is going to do anything out of the ordinary by her own standards. She has obviously sung the anthem before, and even though she is on a bigger stage than she was on American Idol, she won’t let this pressure get to her. In the end, she’ll turn in a relatively tame number that should stay under this 1:34 mark offered at virtually every single online sportsbook.

What Color Will Madonna’s Hair Be For The Halftime Show?
This is a tricky one because you never really can tell what Madonna is thinking. This is certainly the most “risqué” act that any of the Super Bowl halftime shows in recent years, ever since the whole “wardrobe malfunction” incident. The Super Bowl prop here insinuates that Madonna is going to have at least more than one color in her hair. She has gone blonde (or at least some blonde) for quite some time, but for this event, we could see just about anything happening. There is no way that we would want to lay -530 that Madonna does the “normal” thing and at least has half of her hair as blonde, so we would recommend taking the +350 that she comes out with at least a few goofy colors in her locks.

Will The Word “Tebow” Be Said In The First Quarter By Al Michaels Or Chris Collinsworth?
Super Bowl props are always tricky, and SportBet gave us a bit of a curveball here in that only the two men in the announcing booth, not an interviewee or any of the sideline reporters must say the last name of the Denver Broncos’ quarterback. If either one of these signal callers were even the least bit mobile, we would say that the comparison to Tebow would come up. However, unless the New England defense is really harassing QB Eli Manning enough to the point to go back and show just how good it was against the Broncos either in the regular season or in the playoffs on tape, we just don’t see how this is happening. There is far too much going on for the NBC booth boys to be discussing the almighty Tebow, especially in the first quarter of the game.

Robert Kraft Times Shown On NBC vs. Peyton Manning Times Shown On NBC
Again, we have to read between the lines here. The rules specifically state that only kickoff through final whistle count for this prop and that halftime does not apply. This could be crucial, as halftime really seems like the only logical time to discuss the whole Peyton Manning situation. Sure, we think that we will see big brother Peyton a time or two cheering on his little brother (or sulking that his arch rival is winning a Super Bowl on his field), but in the end, the stories for Robert Kraft are just so much greater than those of Manning. Kraft is directly involved in the game as the owner of the Pats, and the story with his wife passing this year and all of the players wearing the patches on their uniforms commemorating her passing is too good not to talk about at least once or twice. The New England owner just has to get more face time on TV than Peyton, or there is something seriously wrong with the coverage of the Super Bowl.

What Will Barack Obama’s Super Bowl Pick Be?
For the time being, President Obama seems to be taking the neutral corner about who is winning the Super Bowl. However, he has made picks for Super Bowls in the past, taking the New Orleans Saints in 2010 and these Patriots in 2008 in their game against these same Giants. Our dear president seems to have some problems with the Manning boys, huh?!?! That being said, if he took the Pats the first time around and they were beaten in the big game, we just can’t see Obama making the same mistake twice. Go with him to take the Giants in a prediction that will probably be ultimately made at some point between now and Sunday’s kickoff.

Bovada Sportsbook is one of our favorite sportsbooks, as it has some of the best football props that you will find on the internet. Check out our Super Bowl prop sheet for the New York Giants, as they get ready to try to get the job done in Super Bowl 46.

Eli Manning Pass Attempts Over/Under 39.5 Pass Attempts: The problem that the Giants have had this year is running the football. Neither RBs Ahmad Bradshaw nor Brandon Jacobs has really done all that much, and the end result has seen Eli have to put a heck of a lot more on his shoulders. Manning threw the ball at least 40 times in four straight games this season towards the end of the year, and he had at least 40 throws eight times including in playoffs. It’s not a great sample set to use in the end, but we just can’t ignore the possibilities that Head Coach Tom Coughlin are going use to try to take advantage of this questionable New England secondary, one which has given up oodles of yards this year at times. We have to think that Eli is going to wing it at least 40 times in this one.

Brandon Jacobs Over/Under 1 Reception: We just love it when we see Super Bowl props like this one. Seeing that “1” on the board looks too easy. It only takes one catch… just one play that could happen at any time to at least ensure a push in this one. However, when you really look back at it, Jacobs isn’t the better back between he and Bradshaw in passing situations, and he isn’t the better back when you think about goal line and short yardage carries either. Over the course of the last six games (including the postseason), Bradshaw has been on the field for almost double the plays that Jacobs has, and the bigger of the two backs only has five receptions in those six games. Jacobs went seven games this year without a single catch against having five games (three of which Bradshaw wasn’t in the lineup) with two or more receptions. Don’t get suckered into this one. The ‘under’ is the right play to make.

Osi Umenyiora Tackles + Assists Over/Under 2.5: We really aren’t all that sure why this prop is this low. Umenyiora isn’t really used all that much against the run because he isn’t all that effective with it, but he does do a great job rushing the passer, which means that he is going be on the field quite a bit harassing QB Tom Brady. Umenyiora has had a great postseason, picking up 5.5 sacks in three games, though those have basically been his only tackles. We aren’t so sure that just based upon sacks, Umenyiora might not reach this point. However, for as much as we are anticipating him being on the field in this game, we do think that more often than not, he will end up with at least three tackles in some form or another.

Lawrence Tynes Over/Under 1.5 Field Goals: Four years ago, Tynes had to be wondering whether he was going to be keeping his job or not. He had missed a slew of field goals on the season for the G-Men, including missing at Lambeau Field in the NFC Championship Game twice before redeeming himself and kicking the game winning three pointer in OT. He did well in the Super Bowl two weeks later and won his job in the offseason that year again and never looked back. Tynes really hasn’t done all that well this year too, especially down the stretch. He hasn’t kicked a field goal of longer than 40 yards in a game since December 18th, but he is still getting his chances. The Giants aren’t a good red zone team, which might leave for a bunch of opportunities to get the job done. He has attempted at least two field goals in nine straight games, including in all three postseason efforts. Of course, making those kicks and getting the chances are two totally different things, but we think that in the big one in the Super Bowl, Tynes will get his chance to be a hero and make at least two kicks at least half the time.
