Super Bowl Sunday is approaching, and with it, gambling.

There are thousands of bets you can make.

Of course, lots of them are boring, like whether the coin toss will land on heads or tails, or what color Bill Belichick's hoodie will be.

Some are less boring. One place even lets you bet on how many times we'll hear "dilly-dilly!" during the game, setting the over at 13-plus—or, at least, it did until so many people took the "over" that it removed the bet.

And many bets are ridiculous, like, "Which will be more: Total pass attempts—or—Nevada's total points against Colorado State in men's basketball on Saturday."

Indeed, that is a way to make—or, more likely, lose—actual money.

Which, hey, we're not here to judge.

Hence, the Bleacher Report Super Bowl Betting Challenge.

It's simple: Decide whether these are actual bets. Like those "True or False" quizzes in school, except "Real or Fake," and hopefully more fun—but also, yeah, just as pointless.

       

Real or Fake

Which Will Be More?

1. The number of Bud Light "Dilly Dilly" commercials—or—The number of times the announcer team says "dog masks"

2. Team USA Winter Olympic gold medals—or—Patriots first-quarter points

3. Total number of first downs—or—Russell Westbrook's total combined points, rebounds and assists against the Lakers on Sunday

4. Gronk's total receiving yards—or—Total points scored Sunday by the Boston Celtics vs. the Portland Trail Blazers

5. Nick Foles touchdown passes—or—Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez's total combined goals vs. Espanyol on Sunday

6. Tom Brady touchdown passes—or—The number of LeBron James Instagram stories on Sunday

    

Either/Or 

1. Team Ruff—or—Team Fluff will win the Puppy Bowl

2. Al Michaels says "Vegas"—or—He does not

3. Cris Collinsworth says "greased poles"—or—He does not

4. Janet Jackson makes a surprise appearance during halftime show—or—She does not
