Even if you don’t already bet on sports, I’m sure that you know that you could if you wanted to.
But what you may not know is that you can also place numerous bets on the Super Bowl halftime show!
Super Bowl 55 is already going to be an exciting game, with the Buccaneers playing at their home stadium for the first time in Super Bowl history, and with the first-ever female Super Bowl referee on the field.
But if you love the halftime show, then you can significantly increase Sunday’s enjoyment by putting money down on some halftime bets.
Here are a few that will be sure to inspire you to register with one of the top Super Bowl betting sites.
The Color of The Weeknd’s Jacket
The Weeknd is a Canadian born singer who gained fame with anonymous YouTube songs. He has worked hard and diligently, never giving up on his quest for a successful musical career.
So naturally, we are going to focus on the color of his jacket!
Seriously, there are odds on whether this performer’s initial halftime appearance will be in a black, red, blue, white, or purple jacket. Black is the odds-on favorite, but purple can win you the most money.
If only we could get inside his head!
Looking at his fashion ensembles over the past several years, we see that he wears a lot of red, some grey, a bit of denim, and a spot of camo. I’ve only seen him in purple once, which is a shame because it is very much his color.
What Song The Weeknd Will Start His Set With
This artist has had a plethora of hits. This is going to be a tough one to call.
Will he start his set with an old favorite?
A new, as-yet-unheard ballad?
If you are a Weeknd fan, you can peruse the options at one of the top online sportsbooks. Look at the options, and then go with your gut.
If you don’t know anything about The Weeknd, you can close your eyes and point, or go with the choice that will give you the biggest payout, or simply choose to wager on one of the other Super Bowl prop bets available.
Here are a few non-Weeknd prop bets you can put your money on.
- The coin toss
- Which team will score first?
- Will the first-ever female Super Bowl ref be knocked to the ground during the game?
- Will the Bucs win by more than 43 points? (Yes! It’s a bet!)
But if you are a fan of all things Weeknd, this bet on how he’ll begin his halftime show is right up your alley. Test yourself on your pop culture/pop music knowledge.
What The Weeknd’s Final Song Will Be
This is essentially the same as the above bet, but you need to keep in mind that artists want to go out with a bang.
Betting on one of the Weeknd’s more popular songs could make sense here.
However, many performers in Super Bowl halftime shows use this opportunity to showcase new music or advertise a new album.
You need to weigh up the options here and decide what you think is most likely.
Will The Weeknd First Appear in Sunglasses?
This is half style choice, half weather commentary. Musicians tend to love sunglasses because everyone in the world looks cooler while wearing them.
So, now you need to ask yourself: if you were a rock star, would a thunderstorm keep you from wearing your coolest shades?
The oddsmakers who work for the bookmakers appear to be saying, “He’ll be wearing his shades!”
Do you agree?
Will He Perform With a Head Bandage?
If you follow celeb gossip, you will know that The Weeknd has been raising eyebrows by appearing in public in a head bandage.
No one is sure if it is a publicity stunt, an actual injury, or evidence of plastic surgery that is taking too long to heal. But in the music industry, who knows?
Stranger things have happened than just wearing a mysterious bandage. Remember when Joaquin Phoenix was “checked out” of his Letterman appearance? And when David Lee Roth forgot to wear pants under his cowboy chaps?
So, back to the bandage: If you believe that The Weeknd will ditch the bandage, you are in the majority. If you bet that he’ll appear with it on, and you are correct, you stand to win a solid return on your guess.
A Closing Thought
I cannot wait for Sunday. Yes, the game is going to make history, for many reasons.
But when I spread the wealth among all the best and most interesting prop bets, I’m buying myself an unforgettable day, with a prospect of a jackpot as an added bonus.
