Cincinnati and Los Angeles will meet in Super Bowl 56, but there’s way more to wager on than just the football game. Today, we’ll look at some of the silliest Super Bowl props odds, including specials on the color of Gatorade to be dumped on the winning coach, the length of Mickey Guyton’s national anthem and what artists and songs will come first and last during the Halftime Show.
Color of Gatorade
Orange liquid favored
Orange (+240) opened as the favorite. The OG flavor has been dumped on five of the past 12 Lombardi winning coaches, including Andy Reid in 2020, and the Bengals color scheme would make an orange Gatorade bath make sense for Zac Taylor. However, why not then choose Yellow (+500) for the Super Bowl favorite Rams and Sean McVay, or Blue (+500)? That’s what Bruce Arians was doused with last year.
According to a former Gatorade executive speaking to The Athletic, “up to three coolers with different flavors” are lined up for the players to grab to dump on their coach. With that randomness in mind, take the long odds of Red/Pink (+850) or Purple (+1000) and hope for the best.

National Anthem Length
|Over 95 Seconds||-130|
|Under 95 Seconds||-110|
Getting to know Mickey Guyton
The over/under on Mickey Guyton’s national anthem is set at just 1 minutes and 35 seconds. That seems low considering the average Super Bowl rendition has taken 1:55 and last year’s ran for 2:17. Additionally, the past nine artists to perform the Star Spangled Banner have all had a over-under line of at least 1:47.
So, what do oddsmakers know that we don’t? Well, the Grammy-nominated country superstar has sung the anthem at a few events over the past six years and each performance has wrapped up in well under 95 seconds. So the question is, will Guyton stick to the script or chew up some clock on the biggest stage of her life? We’ll take the UNDER (-110).
Halftime Show – 1st Artist To Be Shown
|2 or more artists simultaneously||+175|
|Mary J. Blige||+500|
Which Star Opens the Show?
The Super Bowl 56 Halftime Show is a star-studded affair with Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dog, Mary J Blige and Kendrick Lamar paying homage to the West Coast hip-hop revolution. Two artists opening the show simultaneously (+175) is the betting favorite – which makes sense considering the mega-talents involved and the time constraints.
But the smart money is on Kendrick Lamar (+500), who was just over a year old when Dre’s NWA released “Straight Outta Compton” in 1988. The young artist is the perfect opener for the hip-hop legends.

Halftime Show – Last Song Played
|The Next Episode||+500|
|Drop It Like It's Hot||+600|
|Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang||+1000|
|All The Stars||+1200|
Closing with a bang
California Love (+150) might be too on the nose – but there’s a reason why it’s favorite to be the first song (+250) played as well.
Given that we’re expecting Dre and Snoop Dog to close the show, we’ll go with Still D.R.E. at +600 but take this writer’s limited hip-hop knowledge heavily into account before placing your bets.
