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.
- Ben Burns

- Offered at:
- bookmaker @ 8 -110 Canisius
Its hard to get any hotter than Ben Burns is right now. Burns heads into Wednesday's action with a PERFECT 7-0 RECORD over his L7 NBA picks & a 12-1 RECORD over his last 13 basketball plays overall. Throw in his Super Bowl winners and he's an INCREDIBLE 20-2 his L22, in all sports. Now, he GOES FOR THE JUGULAR w/ his #1 GAME OF THE WEEK. Go get it!
Possible lookahead spot for the Saints here. Regularly two of the top teams in the Metro Atlantic Conference, Siena and Iona have long been rivals. Last season, Iona won all three meetings. The Gaels took both regular season meetings and then knocked the Saints out of the MAAC Tournament.
Saturday will be this season's first meeting between Iona and Siena and its a game which the Saints have had circled. Tonight, Siena will host Canisius. Considering that the Saints already beat the Golden Griffins by 21 points, at Canisius, it should be easy to look ahead to Saturday's showdown.
Note that Siena lost against Marist last time out, the worst team in the conference.
Canisisus snapped a losing streak last time out and will be looking for some redemption after getting embarrassed earlier. Take a look at the Golden Griffins as a road underdog on Thursday.
