Who are you rooting for this weekend? Well, the Steelers aren’t playing. And to my boyfriend’s dismay, I’d probably like to see a Giants’ victory (Tom Brady is just too damn good. But we’ll let the BF think that I’m rooting for the Pats…). Maybe you’re tuning in for the commercials and/or halftime show (hello, Madonna?!). Well, no matter who you’re cheering for, there are lots of ways to make your entire Super Bowl experience a little more interesting. You’ve heard of the game victory bets, the coin flip, the first touchdown, etc. Place your bets, do a little research if you must (although I doubt the Vegas odds are really any more accurate), and bet on one (or all) of these:
The Coin Toss. Heads or tails? FYI, in the past 45 Super Bowls, tails has landed up on 23 occasions.
The First Points on the Board. Who will score first? Will it be a touchdown or field goal? Which team will score the first touchdown? What player will score the first touchdown?
Peyton Manning Sightings. With career-ending speculations, the game on his home turf, and his brother on the field, how many times do you think Peyton Manning will be shown on TV?
The Gatorade Shower. What color? Orange has been thrown on the coach during the last two Super Bowls. Maybe it will be clear/water? Bill Belichick‘s 2005 victory earned him a clear/water shower post-game.
The Most Valuable Player. Who do you think will be crowned this year’s Super Bowl MVP?
And of course, the Super Bowl XLVI Champions. Will it be the New England Patriots or the New York Giants? Place your bets!
Can you think of any other bets to make this weekend a little more interesting? Let us know @20sTweet!
