Betting The Super Bowl Halftime Show
Oddsmakers love posting prop bets regarding the Super Bowl halftime show. These wagers can range from the actions of the singers as well as their introduction, a political stance, or even mishaps. Some of prop bets that were available for the Super Bowl LIV halftime show were:
Will Both Jennifer Lopez And Shakira Sing In Spanish?
- Yes -500
- No +300
Will Pitbull Make An Appearance On Stage?
- Yes -130
- No -110
These were just two of the many halftime show prop bets that were available to choose from. Both of the favorites here had different endings, however. As for the prop bet on if both Shakira and Jennifer Lopez will sing in Spanish, the favorite won the bet as Shakira performed “Ojos Asi” and Jennifer Lopez performed “Que Calor” and “Mi Gente” featuring J Balvin. As for the bet on if Pitbull will appear on stage, it was favored that he would make an appearance, considering he is “Mr. 305”, but he was nowhere to be seen during the halftime performance.
