Lets face it, not too many Aussies actually have any idea about the NFL or the Super Bowl.
With that in mind, online bookmaker sportsbet have created several novelty markets so that even if you have no idea who Peyton Manning is, you can still have a bet and enjoy the game.
Firstly, the big man up in the sky is tipped to get a mention on the day, with $2.99 priced that God will be the first person thanked by the MVP during his acceptance speech. His teammates ($3.50), thanking nobody ($3.52) and the sponsors ($6.00) are also a chance, while anyone who tips Michael Crabtree at $221 to be thanked first had better hope that Richard Sherman doesn’t win.
Its become tradition to dunk the winning coach in Gatorade, but it is unclear what will be the Gatorade colour of choice, with both clear and orange the joint favourites at $3.70.
Punters are also able to bet on the off field activities, including if any of the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be topless during the half time show ($1.87 says yes) and what Bruno Mars will wear on his head (Fedora is the $2.00 favourite).
“For the majority of people who will tune in on Monday, they most likely may not have seen either team play before. So we have come up with a few markets that anyone regardless of whether you are an NFL follower or not can follow. We were going to do a few markets on Richard Sherman, but we didn’t want to cope a post-match spray,” said sportsbet’s Shaun Anderson.
In terms of the game, the Denver Broncos will enter as the $1.77 favourites with Seattle at $2.10.
