The Super Bowl is finally here! Do you know what that means? Football, food, football, drinks, football, commercials and football. Oh, and some more football. And a few more commercials. But even if your favorite team isn't playing on Sunday, surely you can have some fun with a few good 'ol prop bets with your buddies. What have you got to lose, other than a few bucks?
The guys over at Bovada have a complete list of the Super Bowl XLVI prop bets that many will be wagering on this evening. Here are a few of the better ones.
For entertainment purposes only, of course.
How Many Times Will Peyton Manning Be Shown On Television During The Game?
Four times or more (-130)
Three times or less (-110)
This should be easy money, folks. Manning has stolen the show this week between his reported recovery from neck surgery and strained relationship with Colts owner Jim Irsay, and he's a beloved figure in the Indianapolis community. Some may say NBC will focus on the game and nothing else, but let's be honest, they're going to show Peyton on camera a ton.
Smart Bet: Over.
How many times will Giselle Bundchen be shown on TV during the game?
The over-under is set at 1/2 times.
Look, if Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz can get on camera while feeding each other popcorn, you can sure bet they'll show Tom Brady's supermodel wife at the game. Not only is Brady one of the most popular figures in the National Football League, but Giselle may be the most famous model in the world. She's beautiful, going to be surrounded by family and will have box seats.
Smart Bet: Over.
If Tom Brady's son is shown on TV during the game will he be wearing a Tom Brady Jersey?
Brady's kid is 2-years old and had the whole celebrity obsessed community clamoring for baby pictures when he was born in 2009. You have to expect the child will be with his mother, and we believe she will be shown on camera at least once. Why settle for only one member of Brady's family when you can have two?
As for his attire, what better for a mom to do than dress their baby boy in his dad's uniform?
Smart Bet: I'd go with a pretty safe "yes" here.
