A ticket to the Superbowl is pretty hard to come by, unless you’re media magnate Rupert Murdoch, which would explain why he’s the $5.00 favourite to be the first Aussie spotted at Levi’s Stadium on Monday morning our time.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has Australia’s Ambassador to the US, Joe Hockey, as the next most likely to be seen on the TV screen at $7.50 should the host broadcaster mistake him for Jon Favreau.
James Packer is priced at $11 but has better things to do and to be honest, better people to hang out with these days.
The pressure has been heightened on Lady Gaga’s rendition of the National Anthem thanks to Sportsbet’s market suggesting she’s a $4.00 chance to forget any of the words while all hell will break loose if the San Francisco Stadium runs out of beer ($21).
“Sadly, the closest we’ll get to seeing an Aussie in the Superbowl telecast will probably be a Jarryd Hayne 49ers jersey in the crowd,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
