Super Bowl 57 National Anthem Betting Guide: Chris Stapleton Takes The Stage And Under Cashes

When it comes to the Super Bowl, you can bet on just about anything. The national anthem is a crowd favorite! First of all, the NFL doesn’t cheap out and always aims to get a big name in the music industry to step onto the stage and set the tone for the game. This year, country music star Chris Stapleton will be stepping up to the microphone to honor America.

Following Stapleton, songwriter and producer Babyface will be in charge of performing America the Beautiful. But that’s not it as Sheryl Lee Ralph, an Emmy Award-winning singer-actor, will be showcasing her rendition of Lift Every Voice and Sing.

Musical legends such as Gladys Knight, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys and Aretha Franklin have all taken their turn belting out the Star-Spangled Banner before kickoff, and like every other part of the event that is the Super Bowl, people like to gamble on it. I mean, you don’t need to know anything about football to feel included on props like this.

Super Bowl 56 appointed Grammy-nominated country music singer Mickey Guyton to perform the national anthem, partnered with Jhené Aiko singing America the Beautiful. 

Guyton’s rendition of the national anthem ended up at 1:50, or 110 seconds long, which went OVER the oddmaker’s total of 106 seconds for the length of the song. Guyton’s outfit was blue, which paid out at +400. A popular crossover prop was whether any scoring drives during the game would take less time than Guyton’s singing of the anthem. In fact, two scoring drives – both by Cincinnati – ended up being shorter than 1:50. For that prop, “Yes” paid out at -185.

How Long Will It Take Chris Stapleton To Sing The U.S. National Anthem?

Chris Stapleton U.S. National Anthem Time Length
OVER 2 Minutes And 3 Seconds-160
UNDER 2 Minutes And 3 Seconds+120

Odds as of February 12

I expect the trend of the national anthem hitting the OVER to continue this year. Stapleton is known for his raspy, slow riffs. He will definitely perform his rendition of the anthem in a slowed-down and probably acoustic version of the Star-Spangled Banner. 

Chris Stapleton and his acoustic guitar came in at two minutes and two seconds... tough beat for anyone that bet the over.

What Other National Anthem Props Can I Bet On For Super Bowl 57?

The best part about Super Bowl betting is that sportsbooks release not only the runtime prop for the national anthem performance but also a variety of other considerations to keep bettors engaged. Some of them are as simple as which player will be shown first during the anthem to whether the singer(s) will forget a word – that’s an embarrassment no one can recover from! Here are some of those bets:

Will A Word Be Forgotten Or Omitted From National Anthem?

National Anthem - Forgotten Or Omitted Word

Odds as of February 12

I don’t see Stapleton stumbling over the anthem, nor do I think he will purposely omit a word. The 44-year-old was born and raised in Kentucky before moving to Tennessee in 2001 – I think the lyrics to the Star-Spangled Banner are second nature in the South. 

There are no reports that any words were omitted from the National Anthem.

What Color Hat Will Chris Stapleton Wear?

Chris Stapleton did not have a hat on during his performance.

Super Bowl Anthem Betting History: Past Results

In the last 16 Super Bowls, the anthem has gone OVER the oddsmaker’s set time on nine occasions and UNDER it six times with one PUSH. 

But if we look at the specific times, seven of the last 10 came in over two minutes. The lines seem to have adjusted accordingly with six of the last 10 being set at two minutes or above, but it’s worth noting that most singers in recent years are trending toward longer renditions.

The NFL introduced ASL interpreters during the national anthem in 1992, with the first translator being Lori Hilary. Only two artists have sung the national anthem twice in Super Bowl history: Billy Joel (1989, 2007) and Aaron Neville (1990, 2006), each performing a year apart from the other on both occasions. 

National Anthem Composition History

Francis Scott Key, a lawyer from Maryland who would probably be a Ravens fan with complete faith in Lamar Jackson if he were alive today, wrote the poem that the anthem is based on. After drawing inspiration from the American flag that was known at the time as the Star-Spangled Banner, Key sat at his desk, his wooden teeth whistling, and penned a ditty about a wild night against the British complete with rockets glaring red, bombs bursting and freedom in the land of the free.

Now, it’s up to you, the bettor, to decide how long it will take to get through Key’s tune. 

How To Bet On Super Bowl National Anthem

Most Super Bowl prop bets are specialized wagers that have no bearing on the outcome of the actual game. In this case, a prop bet on the national anthem would be like an OVER/UNDER, aka a totals wager. You would need to decide if the amount of time it takes for the singer(s) to finish singing the anthem will be longer or shorter than the oddsmaker’s set time.

For example, this is what the national anthem prop looked like at some sportsbooks in 2022:

How Long Will It Take Mickey Guyton To Sing the U.S. National Anthem?
OVER 1 minute 55 seconds-220
UNDER 1 minute 55 seconds+155

By betting the OVER, you think Guyton’s anthem performance will last longer than one minute 55 seconds. Those odds are listed by sportsbooks at -220, meaning the anthem is more likely to go OVER the runtime than UNDER. The -220 odds refer to how much you’d have to bet in order to make $100 in profit. So, if you bet $220 and Guyton went OVER the runtime for her performance, your $220 would be returned along with $100 in profit from the sportsbook.

On the flip side, if you think Guyton’s performance will go UNDER one minute 55 seconds, those odds are listed at +155. When odds have a plus sign (+) in front of them, it indicates how much you would make if you bet $100. For example, if you bet $100 on Guyton to go UNDER and she does, you’d get your $100 bet back along with $155 in profit from the sports betting site.
