We have already discussed the litany of proposition bets that are available for Super Bowl 51, and it seems things are getting out of control. Some sportsbooks are offering hundreds of props and the most insane props have undoubtedly garnered the most attention.
People love to bet on how many times the announcers will say “deflategate,” or whether Lady Gaga will perform naked during the halftime show. 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.
