Super Bowl LVII is quickly approaching and with it, the annual tradition of the national anthem being performed before the big game. This year, country music superstar Chris Stapleton will be taking the stage to belt out “The Star-Spangled Banner.” As with any major sporting event, there are always betting opportunities, and the national anthem is no exception. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the latest the Super Bowl national anthem betting odds.

Bookies Think Anthem Goes Long

National anthem betting is becoming increasingly popular among sports bettors, and the most common wager is on the length of the anthem. Both Bovada and BetOnline seem to have seen some cash being placed on the anthem going over the expected time. This means that bettors believe the anthem will be longer than what is predicted.

BetOnline has the line set at 127 seconds, or 2 minutes and 7 seconds, with over set at -130 and under at -110. Bovada’s line is 205 seconds, or 2 minutes and 5 seconds, with under at -145 and over at +110.

If you are interested in the recent trends, here are the times for the last ten anthems sang prior to the Super Bowl:

Artist Anthem TIme
Mickey Guyton 1:55
Jazmine Sullivan and Eric Church 2:16
Demi Lovato 1:49
Gladys Knight 2:01
Pink 1:52
Luke Bryan 2:04
Lady Gaga 2:22
Idina Menzel 2:04
Renee Fleming 2:03
Alicia Keys 2:36

Seven of the last ten have been under 2:05, which makes sense if performers get nervous and rush through their lyrics a touch.

More Anthem Specials Than Ever

For those who want to add a little extra excitement to their Super Bowl experience, BetOnline is also offering a variety of other national anthem specials. You can bet on Stapleton omitting a word from the anthem, with odds set at +900.

Additionally, you can bet on the length of the word “brave,” with over 5 seconds as the current favorite at -250 and under at +170. Another unique betting opportunity on BetOnline is the “Who Will Be Shown First During the Anthem” market. This includes Andy Reid at -120, Nick Sirianni at -120, Patrick Mahomes at -130, and Jalen Hurts at -110.
