Fun Super Bowl 53 Halftime Betting Props

It took a while to get the official announcement, but Maroon 5 will headline the Super Bowl 53 halftime show with Big Boi and Travis Scott. As with everything Super Bowl-related, there are prop bets available for the halftime show and they are outlined below. 

Halftime, like the commercials, is a huge part of the Super Bowl appeal to the casual or non-sports fan on Super Bowl Sunday. What better way to get involved in some prop betting for someone who doesn’t know football but is interested in getting in on the action? You don’t need to know what a wheel route is to wager on which song Maroon 5 will open its set with!

Let’s break down this year’s prop bets below (Please note: As game time approaches, these will begin to disappear):

Will Adam Levine be wearing a hat when he begins the Halftime Show?
  • Yes       +225
  • No         -350
Odds as of February 3 at Bovada

This prop was offered last year for Justin Timberlake and JT came to the stage without a hat on his head. “No” bettors picked themselves up a win at EVEN money to start halftime. I don't remember EVER seeing Adam Levine wearing a hat. 

What will be the Predominant Color of Adam Levine’s Top at the Start of the Halftime Show?
  • Black  -130
  • Any other color  -110
Odds as of February 3 at Bovada

This is something we can research to see what colors Levine has worn during recent performances and appearances. Maroon 5 played two shows at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on December 30 and 31, with Levine opening both shows wearing a dark long-sleeved shirt. On January 16, Levine wore a black long-sleeved shirt at the Chris Cornell tribute in Inglewood, California. Levine was also spotted wearing a long-sleeved black shirt over a white T-shirt courtside at a Lakers game in mid-December. He was also spotted on December 2 at the Lakers game wearing, again, a black long-sleeved shirt. On November 4 in Philadelphia, Levine wore a black T-shirt under a black hoodie for the Philly Fights Cancer event. 

How Many Songs Will be Played During the Halftime Show? 
  • OVER 7.5       -145
  • UNDER 7.5     +105
Odds as of January 30 at Bovada

Another prop bet with some historical data attached to it. Maroon 5 has been around for a long time and has a large library. Mix in that Big Boi and Travis Scott have to get in on this, and the potential for a medley / larger setlist is real. Let’s take a look at recent Super Bowl setlists for comparison:

2018: 11 songs (Justin Timberlake)

2017: 7 songs (Lady Gaga)

2016: 6 songs (Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Beyonce)

2015: 8 songs (Katy Perry, Missy Elliott, Lenny Kravitz)

2014: 6 songs (Bruno Mars, Red Hot Chili Peppers)

2013: 9 songs (Beyonce / Destiny’s Child)

Setlists for Super Bowl 24 to Super Bowl 52

What will be the First Song Performed by Maroon 5?
  • Makes Me Wonder         +EVEN
  • One More Night              +550
  • Moves Like Jagger         +600
  • Animals                           +700
  • Sugar                              +900
  • Girls Like You                 +900
  • Don’t Wanna Know         +900
  • Payphone                       +1800
  • This Love                       +2000
  • She Will Be Loved         +2200
  • Maps                              +2200
Odds as of January 31 at Bovada

Makes Me Wonder, Sugar, and One More Night have excellent opener ability. You can also potentially eliminate Girls Like You and Moves Like Jagger, songs that feature Cardi B and Christina Aguilera, respectively, that could be kept for later in the set to have that Super Bowl surprise reveal that fans love so much. However, Cardi B is rumored to have turned down performing at the show in protest of the NFL, so maybe don’t hold out hope to see her. 

Will Big Boi and Adam Levine Perform Mic Jack at Halftime? 
  • Yes              -350
  • No               +225
Odds as of January 31 at Bovada

How could they not? It’s a song they did together and they’ll be on the stage together...

Will Christina Aguilera Make an Appearance During the Halftime Show?
  • Yes           +225
  • No             -350
Odds as of January 30 at Bovada

Would be a sweet, sweet reveal for a Moves Like Jagger finale. Aguilera is in game shape, having finished her latest tour in November. 

Will Maroon 5 Play Sweet Victory as a Spongebob Tribute? 
  • Yes             -230
  • No             +160
Odds as of January 31 at Bovada
Will Travis Scott Take a Knee During the Halftime Show?
  • Yes           +160
  • No             -230
Odds as of February 3 at Bovada
