Super Bowl 2022 Halftime Show Prop Bets

  • Bovada has released its prop bets for the Super Bowl 56 halftime show
  • Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar are slated to perform
  • With five artists performing the over on songs performed looks interesting

Every year, the topic of who will perform during the Super Bowl halftime show creates drama. This year was no different as Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar were announced as the Super Bowl 56 halftime performers.

Below, we look at some of the early prop bets that have been released for the halftime show of the upcoming Super Bowl. Super Bowl 56 takes place on February 13, 2022 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

Artist Collaboration

In the past the odds of Snoop Dogg and Eminem collaborating would have been slim. Last July, Eminem took issue with Snoop implying his popularity was based mostly on his relationship with Dr. Dre. However, the odds of Eminem and Snoop working together increased in January when the two put whatever beef they had behind them. The chances of a collaboration got even better when Snoop said that he was recording some songs with Eminem. With three of the five Super Bowl halftime artists seeming to be on the same page, it’s not hard to imagine that Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar could join them for at least a brief collaboration.

Eminem’s First Song

The focus on Eminem is understandable considering his massive popularity. With that, odds are being offered on what song the multi-million selling rapper will perform first.

Because of how easily “Lose Yourself” fits into a sporting scenario and environment and its popularity, it would be a surprise to see Eminem open with another song.

Bovada
Lose Yourself+275
My Name Is+300
The Real Slim Shady+300
Without Me+350
Stan+600

Number of Songs Performed

Considering five artists are slated to perform and a possible collaboration in the offing, the easy bet is to assume that there will be at least six songs performed. With the popularity of Snoop, Dre, Lamar in Southern California, it’s safe to assume that at the very least one of them will get the opportunity to play at least two songs and the same goes for Eminem.

Looking at the past few Super Bowls also gives us a hint that it might be wise to go with the over on this one. The Weekend played nine songs, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez performed 17 songs, Maroon 5, like The Weekend, played nine tunes and in 2018, Justin Timberlake belted out 11 songs.

I would advise taking over 7.5 at -140 via Bovada.

Over 7.5-140
Under 7.5+100

Who Will Perform First?

This is an interesting prop bet. Will the producers go with a big opening or a big closer? Or will they go the route of current local appeal or perhaps historic local appeal? How about opening the show with the strains of “Lose Yourself” to get crowd buy in from the opening seconds of the halftime show? See, this is why producers of these events get paid to make tough decisions. Going by the prop bet odds, it seems as if the expectation is to open Blige and close in a big way with Eminem.

Bovada
Mary J. Blige+175
Kendrick Lamar+250
Snoop Dogg+350
Dr. Dre+500
Eminem+600

There are still a few months to ponder these prop bets as Super Bowl 56 doesn’t take place until February 2022.
