Wacky Bets Permeate Super Bowl XLVI

I’m not one for gambling and don’t do any of it, but I know lots of people do, especially around Super Bowl time. Some areas people bet on make sense, like total points, who will win, by how much, who will be the MVP, etc. Some bets are just straight-up loony, but I guess they wouldn’t be there if people didn’t bet on them, right?

Here are some “prop” bets and the odds, courtesy of Bovada. I’m betting against Kelly Clarkson showing her naval during the National Anthem…
