With Super Bowl LI just a couple of days away, many gamblers around the country are placing their bets on who they think will win. If you are fairly confident in not just who will win, but what the final score will be, you can make a bet on that too. You could even bet who will be leading after each quarter, whether Patriots QB Tom Brady or Falcons QB Matt Ryan will have more passing yards, and which team will have the most sacks. But you can make “prop” bets (meaning a “propositional” or side/novelty bet) to all kinds of things. Here are five of the strangest you can find over at

#5. A page from Colin Kaepernick

You can actually bet on whether or not any player from either team will take the time to protest during the national anthem.

Will any player on the Falcons or Patriots be shown kneeling during the National Anthem?

Yes: +210

No: -250

#4. Cost of Attendance

You can bet on how expensive (or how cheap) tickets to the Super Bowl will be leading right up until the day of the Super Bowl.

What will be the highest price of a Superbowl 51 ticket at SeatGeek on February 5, 2017 at 12 noonEastern?

Over $110000: -150

Under $110000: +120

#3. So the Puppy Bowl is still a thing.

Not actually related to the Super Bowl itself, but you can bet on an Animal Planet competition that mimics the Super Bowl.

Puppy Bowl XIII MVP will be?

Mixed breed: -150

Purebred: +120

#2. Presidential Pick

Not who will win, but you can bet on who United States President Donald Trump things will win.

Who will Donald Trump ‘pick’ to win the game or express a preference to win during FOX TV Super Bowl Pregame Show?

New England Patriots: -450

Atlanta Falcons: +300

#1. Denim or dressy?

Country singer Luke Bryan will be performing the national anthem before the game. While it’s not uncommon to bet on the length of the national anthem, you can actually be on Luke’s wardrobe.

Will Luke Bryan be wearing blue jeans during his National Anthem performance?

Yes: -250

No: +210
