Best Super Bowl Halftime Prop Bets: Predicting Usher's Performance

Usher performed "Caught Up" as his first song, which was moved to the favorite four days before the show at -250 odds. Alicia Keys made an appearance on stage, as most predicted at -550. Lil Jon also popped up in the crowd for a performance of "Turn Down for What". Ludracis jumped in with his friends, cashing all three top guests at -250. OVER 8.5 songs cashed with ease at +170.

We're kicking it back to the early 2000s with Usher being your Super Bowl 58 halftime show performer and the odds are that My Way will be the first song at +100. Known for his party beats, this halftime show is about to turn into a club. You don’t need to know anything about football to earn some cash with these bets.

Unless your favorite team is one of the two on the field this Sunday, why else would you be watching the NFL Super Bowl? If you said any reason other than the Super Bowl halftime show, then you’re lying. 

What Will Be The First Song Usher Sings?

First Song To Be Performed
My Way+100
DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love+1000
Love In This Club+1200
U Got It Bad+1800
U Remind Me+1800
Confessions Pt. 2+2300

Odds as of February 10

Last year’s halftime show was the most watched in Super Bowl history with Rihanna drawing in 118.7 million viewers during her solo performance. She broke a five-year performing hiatus and announced a pregnancy -- so, the NFL needed to go big for 2024.

Super Bowl 58 Halftime Show props & Picks

The first song to kick off a halftime show should get the crowd pumped up. For Usher, his most popular song according to Spotify is Yeah!, with over 1.15 million streams. The song featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris is one tune the 45-year-old is known for.

I mean, have you ever been in a club when this song starts? Everyone's ears perk up. It's obvious Yeah! would be a near +650 favorite. 

Another solid pick would be OMG, another upbeat song that has an instantly recognizable beat. I'm sure Usher is hoping he leaves an oh my god impression after leaving the stage.

How Many Songs Will Be In The Set?

Number Of Songs In Set
Number Of SongsOdds
UNDER 8.5-250
OVER 8.5+170

Odds as of February 10

Again, Usher really sticks to one genre and tempo which is energetic dance music and some smooth R&B. So, his songs mash up exceptionally well. I'd lean on the chances of a remix at plus money here and go for the OVER 8.5 songs.

What Color Will Usher's First Word(s) Be??

Ushers First Word(S)
What's Up+350
Make Some Noise+600
I Can't Hear You+800

Odds as of February 10

If the oddsboard is right and Usher performs his hit Yeah! first, then we've got two promising options on the board. Usher can either just head right into the chorus and say "Yeah" right off the bat. However, he could also choose to perform the song from the top with the iconic "Peace up, A-town down" opening line. So, taking a jab at "Peace" at +800 could be worth it. 

odds to make an appearance during usher's halftime show

Now, I called it last year, Rihanna brought out no one. She didn't need to. The Queen was more than enough herself. Usher, on the other hand, I don't think will want to hold the stage down on his own. 

Not to mention, many of his greatest hits have features like Lil Jon, Ludacris, Pitbull and Alicia Keys. So, chances are, a couple of guests will join him on the big stage. 

To Make An Appearance During Usher's Performance
Alicia Keys To Appear On Stage-550
Ludacris To Appear On Stage-250
Lil Jon To Appear On Stage+100
Justin Bieber To Appear On Stage+450
Nicki Minaj To Appear On Stage+325
Taylor Swift To Appear On Stage+550
Pitbull To Appear On Stage+400 To Appear On Stage+250
Lil Wayne To Appear On Stage+550
David Guetta To Appear On Stage+650

Odds as of February 10

Usher has plenty of iconic features on his songs. Odds are he will bring some of them out. Rumor has it Alicia Key will be joining him at -550. As for me and a large group, we're all eyeing Bieber, who was founded by Usher, to take the stage.

History Of The Super Bowl Halftime Show

Prior to the 1990s, the Super Bowl halftime show wasn’t the spectacle and needle-mover in pop culture that it is today. The NFL mainly featured university marching bands or occasionally an artist who was past their prime like Chubby Checker in 1988 for Super Bowl 22.

It wasn’t until Michael Jackson took the stage in 1993 for Super Bowl 27 that the production standard was set, and expectations have grown each year. While it’s technically an unpaid performance, the Super Bowl routinely gets the best of the best from all musical genres just for the exposure alone.
