With Super Bowl 50 just days away, sports fans across the United States will be setting up their bets on who will win the final showdown of the NFL season, between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos.
While many will bet on things like the number of points scored, rushing yards and who will be MVP, others will be focused on the more ridiculous prop bets, such as will Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning cry or what color Gatorade will be poured on the winning coach. Some bets have nothing to do with the actual game but instead focus on the halftime show.
The event-within-the-event has had its fair share of blunders over the years, and people still love to bet on things like the performers’ outfits and what scandalous things might happen -- this year it's Coldplay, Beyoncé and Bruno Mars taking the stage. Here is a list of some halftime show bets, compiled from Paddy Power and Sports Interaction.
