CRAWFORD | Wanna bet? With Super Bowl you can -- on anything

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- When it comes to the Super Bowl, if it moves, there's a line for it. I'm not talking about a line to wait in (though if you're going, there are plenty of those).

I'm talking about a line to bet on.

Forget about the usual -- pointspread, favorite, underdog, over/under.

The Super Bowl brings out the exotics. RJ Bell of Pregame.com sent along some early lines on some of the Super Bowl extracurriculars. In Vegas, they call them "props," bets on unusual things.

For instance, did you know that the over/under the postgame hug/handshake between the Harbaugh brothers is 7.5 seconds?

Or if you're into the national anthem, a $100 bet will get you $110 if Alicia Keys messes up the lyrics. The over/under on her rendition is 2 minutes, 15 seconds and a $100 bet that she gets booed will get you $500 if she is.

Easy money? Number of times the Harbaugh's father Jack is shown during the game is put at 2.5 times. I'd take the over all day, even if Jack does stay home to watch on TV.

Another one that seems low? Times "Harbaugh" will be said during the game. Over/under is 21.5. I'm thinking it'll be more.

Halftime show odds? They have them. A $100 bet that Jay Z will join Beyonce on stage during the halftime show will return $110. Same odds that Beyonce's hair will be straight, not curly.

Looking to make money off misfortune? A $100 bet that any player will get arrested before the game will pay $500 if one does.

Good Lord, there's even an over/under for how many times Ray Lewis will mention the words "God" or "Lord" in his postgame interview (3 times).

And finally, the money ought to be flowing in on the Gatorade bath. The payoffs on a $100 bet if the color of the Gatorade dumped on the winning coach is:

Clear: $200
Orange: $250
Yellow: $250
Blue: $700
Green: $700
Red: $700
