It wouldn’t be the Super Bowl if there weren’t a crazy amount of prop bets for the public to bet on.

Ahead of next week’s Super Bowl LII, here are some of the most common — and wackiest — prop bets you can wager on before the New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles

National anthem

Betting on the over/under on the length of the national anthem is as classic as ordering wings for Super Bowl Sunday. This year’s anthem will be performed by pop artist Pink, and Bovada is setting the line at over/under two minutes.

Under two minutes is a +110 underdog while the over is a -150 favorite. 

Pink’s hair color

Curious to what color hair Pink will have when she performs the national anthem? There’s a bet for that. Per Bovada: 

  • Pink/Red (+160).
  • White/Blonde (+160).
  • Brown/Black (+400).
  • Blue/Purple (+500).
  • Green (+500).

Carson Wentz mentions

The Eagles, of course, lost their starting MVP-caliber quarterback during the season, and so gamblers can wager just how many times Carson Wentz will be mentioned on the broadcast. Courtesy of Odds Shark, the over/under is 3 1/2 times. 

Right now, the over (-110) is the favorite. 

Trump tweets

The website My Top Sports Book is listing plenty of prop bets involving President Trump, including: the over/under for how many times Trump tweets during the game (3 1/2), the odds of a pre-game interview featuring Trump with NBC (9/1) and the odds Trump will insult ___ during the game (the NFL as a whole is a 3/4 favorite).
