While many Americans look forward to the Super Bowl for its truly engaging advertisements, others also enjoy the prop bets, aka "proposition bets".
Fans of Frozen and its over-played "Let it Go" may bet on some lines (pun intended) regarding Idina Menzel's rendition of the National Anthem. Think she'll take over 2:01 to complete the anthem? Will she omit a word (4-1 odds)?
I'm leaning to let this prop bet go.
Menzel isn't the only singer that is the subject of various bets - Katy Perry's hair color, clothes, etc. are all prop bets too.
The NFL probably won't be letting Marshawn Lynch go for his non-cooperation during Media day. I like the +400 bet that he will get fined for his words, or lack thereof.

In terms of other distractions, how many times will "deflated balls" be mentioned on the telecast of the game? I'm going with over 2.5, unless the NFL tries to prevent comments about it, instructing reporters specifically not to talk about deflated balls. In fact, it is likely that they will be mentioned exactly twice, but since everyone loves saying "deflated balls", let's go with over on this one.
Actual Game bets worth taking a look at:
Patriots to score first
Sacks over 4.5
