Gambling on the Super Bowl is an American tradition. Like voting and apple pie and bombing other countries for fun. But methinks the Super Bowl Gambling tradition might have finally strayed into shark jumping territory. Check out all the things bookies are taking bets on this year….

under 1 minute and 34 seconds -120
over 1 minute and 34 seconds -120
Will Kelly Clarksons’ bare belly be showing when she sings the National Anthem?
+300 (meaning, Vegas thinks it won’t happen so a theoretical $1 bet would bring you back 3 bucks if in fact Kelly’s Belly makes an appearance.
Will Kelly Clarkson forget/omit at least one word of the National Anthem?

What will the final TV rating be for the Super Bowl according to Nielsen ratings? Over/under 47½

In addition to all that tomfoolery and chicanery, Vegas is also taking bets on will Madonna wear a hat? How many times will Peyton Manning be shown? How many times will Tim Tebow be mentioned? What will the Dow Jones do the day after the Super Bowl?
It’s absolute lunacy. If you are seriously betting on any of the aforementioned scenarios or odds, I have a more important number than the over/under and that number is 1-800-Gambler. Get help. Surrrrrrrriously. Tell em Kenny.
