Through the first 49 Super Bowl games, Tails has edged out a narrow lead in the pregame coin toss with 25 instances in 49 games. Which side the coin will land on is one of the many fun prop bets that will be available to wager on for Super Bowl 50.

As expected, both "Heads" and "Tails" are available at the same price of -105 according to sportsbooks monitored by The flip has landed on Tails in each of the last two Super Bowl games, breaking up a stretch of five straight games in which the coin landed on heads.

Remarkably, the NFC has completely dominated the coin toss in recent years, winning the toss 16 times in the last 18 years.

Lady Gaga has been selected to sing the national anthem at Super Bowl 50, and the line on the length of her rendition of the song has been set at 2:20 at the sportsbooks. This is a fairly high line, considering that only one of the last 10 Super Bowl anthem lengths has gone OVER 2:10, and that was Alicia Keys' 2:35 rendition at Super Bowl 47.

The UNDER is 6-4 on this prop bet over the last 10 Super Bowls.

At the end of the first half, Coldplay and Beyonce will perform the halftime show at Super Bowl 50. What color will Beyonce's footwear be when she comes out on stage? "Black" is the favorite at +150 over "Gold/Brown" (+250), "White" (+300), "Silver/Grey" (+500) and "Any Other Color" (+500).

During the broadcast of the game, prop bettors will have plenty of things for which to watch and listen. Will Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders be mentioned during the broadcast? "No" is the -300 favorite, but a mention of any of these presidential candidates would pay +200.

Other broadcast lines include how many times John Fox will be mentioned (Over 1 -140, Under 1 +100), how many times Archie Manning will be shown (Over 1.5 +100, Under 1.5 -140) and how many times John Elway will be shown (Over 2.5 +100, Under 2.5 -140).

Postgame prop bets include "What color will the liquid be that is poured on the winning coach?" with favorites of Orange (+125), Blue (+300), Clear (+400) and Yellow (+400) and "Who will the Super Bowl MVP mention first?" with co-favorites of Team (+200) and God (+200).
