NFL Prop Shop: Off-the-Wall Super Bowl Edition
With plenty of downtime left before the big game kicks off on February 3rd, let's have a little fun with four off-the-wall, non-game related props currently being offered.
All props and odds are currently available at Sportsinteraction.com.
National anthem - Will Alicia Keys mess up the words: No (-300)
Seriously? After Christina Aguilera fumbled the anthem a couple of years ago in Dallas, there's no chance we'll see a true professional like Alicia Keys botch the anthem in New Orleans. I'm surprised this prop isn't being priced north of -500 to be honest. The price is still steep, but this should be a gimme.
Halftime show - Will Jay-Z make a cameo appearance: Yes (+110)
I don't think there's anyone out there that doesn't see this one coming. With his wife taking the stage, you can bet that Jay-Z will have a hand in the halftime show. Rumors have pushed the price down, allowing us to step in and earn a plus-money return on what I consider a high-percentage play.
Halftime show - What song will Beyonce open with: Crazy In Love (+180)
The choice is simple here. Beyonce goes with her most well-known and well-received song to open the set. We might even be able to kill two birds with one stone, as this would be an ideal spot for a Jay-Z sighting.
Barack's team - Which team will president Barack Obama select to win: Baltimore (+300)
Keep in mind, there are three selections being offered, with fence-sitter being the third option. I'll take a shot with Barack backing his neighbors from Baltimore. The Ravens have paid their dues over the years, and they just seem like the type of hard-working team that the president would support.
Of course, fence-sitter is being priced at -575 for a reason, so tread lightly.

1* Oklahoma City (8:05 ET): What a huge game this shapes up to be, particularly for the Thunder. They have lost B2B games, including a humiliating loss to the Lakers Sunday...
Meanwhile, the hard-charging Rockets have been the best team in the league since January 1st and have won five straight. They just beat Miami, Indiana and Portland in the same week, but all of those games were at home. Now they hit the road, which is where their last two losses have occurred. Since the start of last year, Houston is just 3-8 straight up Oklahoma City, including playoffs.
OKC has won both meetings this season by double digits. This despite being without Russell Westbrook. At home, I think they are a tremendous value in this price range. Laying 3.5 to 6 points at home, the Thunder are 4-2 SU/ATS. Houston is just 1-4 SU/ATS taking 3.5 to 6 points on the road. Look for the Thunder to get back on track at home. 1* Oklahoma City.
