Super Bowl National Anthem Prop Odds

Update: Despite battling the flu, Pink went UNDER the proposed time of two minutes at 1:53 in her rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner. 

The American national anthem. At sporting events big and small across the United States, the Star-Spangled Banner is performed each time as a tradition for good sportsmanship and the appreciation of living in a free democratic state.

But at OddsShark, we see a chance to make some profit and we are ALL OVER IT. Once Pink got announced as this year’s bearer of patriotism, online sportsbooks began formulating their odds for how the anthem will shake out and whether another UNDER will come to fruition for bettors. 

if the line stays at two minutes, the OVER/UNDER is 6-6 in the last 12 Super Bowls.  the average length of time for each of those anthems is one minute 58 seconds.

Online sportsbooks like Bovada have the pop star’s OVER/UNDER at an even two minutes and while I’m sure sportsbooks are using past performers’ run times as a baseline, the reality is there is no evidence to show what her performance tendencies are (other than being suspended in the air). After extensive research, it’s like Big Brother scrubbed the internet to remove any past footage of her singing an anthem in any shape or form, which makes this incredibly hard to cap.

But it seems sportsbooks think it could go either way as both the OVER and UNDER is listed at -120. 

Other anthem props listed from BetOnline include which of the head coaches will be shown during the anthem, if the first close-up of a player will show him with his hand over his heart and if Pink will be showing some cleavage for her performance.

Last year’s performer, Luke Bryan, had video evidence to cap odds as he had performed the anthem at the MLB All-Star Game in 2012. He clocked in last year at two minutes four seconds for Super Bowl 51 and UNDER bettors cashed in on the country singer’s drawl.

Some of the outliers for comparison saw Kelly Clarkson zoom through the anthem at one minute 34 seconds while Alicia Keyes came out using a piano and stretched her performance to two minutes 35 seconds. Billy Joel was the quickest in the last 12 years and clocked in at one minute 30 seconds.

For bettors looking at any trend to cling to, if the line stays at two minutes, the OVER/UNDER would be 6-6 in the last 12 Super Bowls. Another stat to note is the average length of time for each of those anthems is one minute 58 seconds.

But the run time of the anthem is just the tip of the iceberg. Bovada also offers odds on other elements of Pink’s performance such as if she will be airborne while singing, if she will be wearing Eagles swag and, naturally, what color her hair will be. 

For reference, here is a breakdown of each anthem performer’s runtime in the last 12 years.
