We have already discussed the litany of proposition bets that are available for Super Bowl 50, and it seems things are getting out of control. Some sportsbooks are offering hundreds of props and the most ridiculous ones have undoubtedly gained the most traction.
People love to bet on whether Mike Carey will be wrong about a challenge, or how many times Cam Newton will dab, or whether Beyonce will have visible cleavage during her performance at halftime. That said, we felt like there were still a lot of great prop betting opportunities that weren’t being offered.
Since readers are likely getting tired of repetitive Super Bowl analysis, we wanted to have some fun and create our own set of ridiculous prop bets. We also added some of the top user submitted props.
