Another day closer to the end of the 2018 NFL Season means another examination of crazy ways Americans can gamble on The Big Game and whacky props posted in sportsbooks throughout the land. Yesterday we reported on best odds for betting on the national anthem at Super Bowl 53 so today requires exploration of even more entertainment-related outcomes possibly happening on Sunday.
For those previously unaware, it’s possible to bet on the Super Bowl halftime show because no one wants to take a gambling break just because players are in the locker room. It’s actually a popular subject attracting many since it takes zero expertise to predict outcomes (although fashion and pop culture “experts” might argue otherwise).
So let’s break down options for Maroon 5’s halftime performance, starting with how many songs will be played. There is a huge difference in opinion from bookmakers on this topic and value can definitely be had depending on side supported. David Strauss at universally-admired MyBookie Sportsbook has the total at 3½ with Over -180 and Under +140.
Then Dave Mason at BetOnline went a little higher with 4, Over -200 being a slight favorite when compared to Under +150. Alternatively, Pat Morrow at respected iGaming website Bovada have hung a whopping 7½ songs, showing he’s taking into account the large number of hits Maroon 5 have released over the past 15 years. However, with Over and Under both paying -120, there’s not any true value to be had. Most professionals agree it’s always better to take Over because they might just play a few notes of a trademark melody as an introduction, technically counting as “2 songs” in the official tally.
In regards to specific tunes played, loads of different questions are available to get down on. Strauss has the favorite for 1st song played as Makes Me Wonder (+100) followed by One More Night (+450), Animals (+600), and then Don’t Wanna Know, Girls Like You, Moves Like Jagger, and Sugar all at +800. Alternatively, Morrow prognosticates Maroon 5 start with One More Night (+300), other options being Makes Me Wonder (+500), Sugar (+550), Animals (+600), Girls Like You (+600), and Moves Like Jagger (+600).
It’s also possible to stake if Maroon 5 and Big Boi bust out, Mic Jack at MB (Yes -300 / No +200) or Bovada (Yes -400 / No +250). At the former, it’s also possible to back whether Andre 3000 will join Big Boi on stage (Yes +250 / No -400), and if Big Boi will wear a Falcons jersey during the performance (Yes +350 / No -600) or a gold chain (Yes -700 / No +400).
Moving on to Levine’s attire, Dave Mason set favorites for shoe color at White (+120), Black (+300), Brown (+700), Blue (+1000) and Red (+1000), while the longest shot is Pink (+2500). Middling Morrow is more concerned with Levine’s t-shirt, extending (Black -180 vs. any other color +140) and whether he’ll wear a hat (Yes EVEN / No -140).
