The Super Bowl brings out all kinds of crazy prop bets, including whether Denver's running back will cry.

SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

Every year, there are all kinds of prop bets in the Super Bowl for people ranging from "betting with friends for fun" to "massively addicted gambler guy." One of the most hilarious bets of Super Bowl XLVIII will be won or lost before the game even begins. Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno is an emotional dude, but will he cry during the National Anthem? Odds are Yes (4/1) and No (1/7).

So, why is this a bet? Well, you might remember Moreno before a game against the Kansas City Chiefs this season at Arrowhead Stadium. With first place on the line in the AFC West, CBS showed a shot of Moreno crying uncontrollably while standing on the sideline.

Moreno says there are times when he doesn't even notice the tears, most of it culminating from him thinking of his life experiences.

Without question, FOX will have its cameras trained on Moreno from every angle during the anthem.
