Rihanna to perform at our NFL Super Bowl 57 Halftime Show props and bets

Best Super Bowl Halftime Prop Bets: Pregnant Rihanna Takes Center Stage Alone as the Over Songs Cashes

Unless your favorite team is one of the two on the field in February, 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. It’s the portion of the contest where women, children, pets and even men gather around the TV to watch the musical performance.

Last year’s halftime show, featuring a group of hip-hop legends like Eminem and Dr. Dre, recorded over 100 million live viewers. Not many thought the upcoming State Farm Stadium headliner could top them – but the NFL clearly had some magic up its sleeve.

Rihanna is ending her nearly five-year performing hiatus to step on stage in Glendale, Arizona. The singer, who also owns a successful cosmetics company and dabbles in creating some of the best lingerie on the market, all while being a new mommy, will make one of the most anticipated returns in the music industry.

Think about it – name a Rihanna song that didn’t become a hit. Trick question, you can’t. The artist hasn’t released new music since her album “ANTI” came out in 2016. If you’re already curious about what chart toppers will be on the 34-year-old’s set list, then making Super Bowl halftime show predictions and Super Bowl halftime prop bets is up your alley. Rihanna already shared she isn’t sure whether she will bring out any guests, whether it be boyfriend A$AP Rocky or Jay-Z, who is helping organize the event for her. The last female to go solo at a Super Bowl halftime show was Lady Gaga in 2017.

You don’t need to know anything about football to earn some cash with these bets. There are already some Super Bowl halftime show props, and online sportsbooks can help you lock in some early wagers.

What Can I Bet On For The 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show?

As we get closer to Super Bowl 57, sportsbooks will release more and more Super Bowl prop bets for the halftime performance. Here are some of the best Super Bowl halftime show props currently available to wager on:

What Will Be The First Song Rihanna Sings?

First Song To Be Performed
Don’t Stop The Music+110
This Is What You Came For+500
What’s My Name+600
Lift Me Up+700
Better Have My Money+1000
We Found Love+1400
Where Have You Been+1400
Needed Me+2000
Rude Boy+2000
Hate That I Love You+3000

Odds as of February 12

Better Have my Money is the winner here, which is ironic as the Super Bowl entertainer historically isn't paid for their performance.

The first song to kick off a halftime show, especially when making a long-awaited return from a performing break, should get the crowd amped. Rihanna hasn’t performed a proper show in nearly five years so warming up her vocal cords with “Where Have You Been” seems appropriate. Likewise, “What’s My Name” could be another song to begin the set – I mean, she might want to make sure the audience actually does remember her name so asking them is the best way to find out. Both options have great value to pounce on.

How Many Songs Will Be In The Set?

Number Of Songs In Set
Number Of SongsOdds
UNDER 9.5-130
OVER 9.5-105

Odds as of February 12

The OVER cashes here, the Rihanna's gurus are telling us there was 13 songs.

What Color Will Rihanna’s First Outfit Be?

Color Of Rihanna’s First Outfit

Odds as of February 12

Red with no wardrobe changes

What will Be The Color of Rihanna’s Hair?

Color Of Rihanna’s Hair
Bright Red+220

Odds as of February 7

While Rihanna has had her fair share of colorful hair in the past, she has stuck to black of late. I mean, she’s a mom now and maturity has taken over her style (in the best way!). Keep in mind, Rihanna is one of the notable faces in fashion – she does own her own lingerie line. So, I can see her sticking to her natural black hair during the halftime show.

What Color Lipstick Will Rihanna Wear?

Rihanna Primary Lipstick Color
No Lipstick/Clear+275

Odds as of February 9

Guys, she owns a makeup line and one of her first viral products was her Fenty lip gloss. She’s going to be showcasing her makeup line in one form or another. I wouldn’t be hesitant to bet on clear here at +275, because a clear gloss to top off a dewy glow is the trend right now.

Will Rihanna Wear A Necklace On Stage?

Odds as of February 12

Rihanna didn't bring anyone on stage with here. 

Personally, I would steer clear of most of the names on this list in predicting who Rihanna might bring out on stage. Sure, one is her baby daddy and the other two are close friends. But there’s something about Rihanna that screams femininity. She is known for rejecting any misogynistic questions about boyfriends and she is an advocate for female empowerment. Truthfully, I can see Rihanna wanting to make a statement and step out of her hiatus on her own or bring out another supporting woman.

If there’s a prop I’m interested in, it would be Rihanna opening an umbrella – I know, seems strange. But, it is pretty likely the star will sing her famous tune “Umbrella,” and the music video’s choreography features her dancing in the rain with an umbrella – self explanatory. 

Halftime Show Ratings

Halftime Show Average Audience
101 Million Or UNDEREVEN
OVER 101 Million-130

Odds as of February 7

This is an anticipated comeback from Rihanna. Again, she hasn’t performed in a while but has still stayed relevant in the celebrity world. There’s a ton of curiosity surrounding what she’s been doing, especially with the secrecy about her son, relationship and the future of her music career. Rihanna is one of those artists who can be loved and listened to by a variety of music lovers. I think her return to stage will be a must-see for many. Last year saw 100 million viewers, but I’m predicting Rihanna’s popularity will reach OVER 101 million viewers.

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.
