Canal Street Chronicles: Bet On It!

Was a more perfect match ever made than the Super Bowl and sports betting? It’s hard to imagine one; America’s obsession with football combined with the opportunity to get easy money. So it’s natural that you can bet on almost anything associated with the Super Bowl. Canal Street Chronicles lets us know some of the wackier things that you can bet on:

For example, you can bet on whether or not they will show the replay of Tom Benson celebrating after Garrett Hartley’s missed field goal against Tampa Bay during the Super Bowl broadcast.

Other fun betting lines:

How Many Times will CBS show Kim Kardashian on TV during the Game?
Over/Under 2.5
(Wager is on the number of times Kim Kardashian will appear on TV during the Game (from kick off until final whistle). Live pictures only, Any Taped Pictures or Past Video does not count towards wager.)

Will a member of the Who smash a guitar on stage during the halftime show?
Yes +120
No -150

What side of the ball will the Players that perform the Gatorade Shower be from?
Offensive +140
Defensive -170

Seriously, doesn’t it sound like if gamblers wanted to coordinate with certain parties (ahem, the networks, the Who or Kim Kardashian) they could game the system? Someone needs to investigate.
