(Newser) – Sure, you can wager on whether the Patriots or the Rams will win the Super Bowl on Sunday, but where's the fun in that? All kinds of unusual "prop bets" also are available to gamblers. Here are eight from USA Today, CBS Sports, Fox News, and even Golf.com:

  • Length of national anthem: Specifically, whether Gladys Knight will go over 105 seconds.
  • Trick play: How many players will attempt a pass? The over-under is 2.5, meaning someone other than QBs Tom Brady and Jared Goff will have to launch one.
  • Shirtless: Will Adam Levine of Maroon 5 take off his shirt during the halftime show? The smart money is on "no."
