As most football fans know, every year during the Super Bowl, there are hundreds of small, individual prop bets that you can put money on. These prop bets extend to the annual halftime show. Here are a few of the more interesting prop bets regarding the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVI, along with the results.
What color will Madonna's hair be when she begins the Super Bowl Halftime show?
Any other color: +250
It should come as no surprise that the odds-on favorite of "blonde" came up as the big winner here.
Will Madonna be wearing fishnet stockings at any point during the Super Bowl Halftime show?
The odds were even on this one, but although Madonna wore thigh-high boots, there were no fishnets.
Will Madonna wear an NFL Jersey or shirt at any point during the Super Bowl Halftime show?
The closest that Madonna came to representing the NFL overtly was when she and her background dancers became cheerleaders during "Gimme All Your Luvin" with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.. No jersey or shirt anywhere.
Will Madonna wear a hat at any point during the Super Bowl Halftime show?
The "hat" bet was the one I was personally rooting for. Sure enough, it paid off for those who wagered, as Madonna opened the show entering on a throne, wearing a headdress while performing "Vogue."
