When you think of the NFL, you can't help but think about gambling. Yes, the gambling industry (both legal and illegal) is one of the things that "props" up the NFL (pun intended).
Speaking of "props"—those fun little bets that even those of us who never wager a cent of a Sunday will be intrigued with—are certainly alive and well for this year's big game.
Look, we aren't talking the normal stuff, like who is going to win and by how much? No, that's boring. However, in case you're interested, the current odds favor the Patriots by three points and the under/over is 55 points.
In this case, we're talking about crazy bets like when will TV viewership peak in New York City (fourth quarter), how many will watch the game (over/under 115 million) and who President Obama will pick to win (even odds).
While prop bets vary from place to place, for those of you with money to burn, you can even bet on how the Dow Jones will respond the day after the Super Bowl!
Oh, and by the way, there is a game, too. Just in case you're wondering, the odds that the game will be cancelled is currently off the boards.
