O Say You Should See These Super Bowl National Anthem Prop Bets

Super Bowl LVII National Anthem performer Chris Stapleton

Chris Stapleton has been announced as the singer of the Star-Spangled Banner for Super Bowl LVII, and Babyface will also sing American the Beautiful prior to the National Anthem.

With the AFC and NFC Champions now being decided and SB game lines posted, online NFL sportsbooks can focus on more obscure odds like Super Bowl National Anthem prop bets.

Both Bovada and BetOnline have delivered this year with creative props that cover new angles for wagering on National Anthem odds. First up is the National Anthem over/under, which both books created a line for.

How Long Will It Take Chris Stapleton To Sing The US National Anthem? (Bovada)

  • Over 2 Minutes And 05 Seconds -115
  • Under 2 Minutes And 05 Seconds -115

Length of US National Anthem by Chris Stapleton (BetOnline)

  • Over 125 Seconds -130
  • Under 125 Seconds -110

Both legal Super Bowl betting sites have posted the exact same Star-Spangled Banner over/under time of 125 seconds, but BetOnline is favoring the over more heavily. Anyone betting the over for the National Anthem at the 2023 Super Bowl should do so at Bovada.LV because earning a dollar there requires $0.15 less risk.

Each book has included props for flubbing the lyrics to the National Anthem with moneyline odds that vary significantly.

Will Any Word Be Forgotten Or Omitted From The National Anthem? (Bovada)

  • Yes +450
  • No -775

US National Anthem Any Word Omitted (BetOnline)

  • No -3000
  • Yes +900

If you think Stapleton will goof up, place your bets at BetOnline and his +900 moneyline. Bets placed on a perfect rendition should be done at Bovada and their -775 odds.

BetOnline has a Super Bowl prop bet posted on the length of Babyface’s rendition of America the Beautiful, accepting action on an over/under of 1:49.

America the Beautiful Length by Babyface

  • Over 109 Seconds -135
  • Under 109 Seconds -105

Props for the Halftime Show performance normally command a line on wardrobe color, and we usually see one for female National Anthem performers as well. When it comes to Chris Stapleton’s clothes, he sticks to traditional western fare, and that’s reflected in the following prop bet for his cowboy hat color.

  • Any Other Color -600
  • Black +350

During Super Bowl 53, Gladys Knight sang the word “brave” multiple times at the end of the National Anthem, causing difficulty for sportsbooks in determining the cutoff time.

The consensus in the sports betting world is that the song is over when the word “brave” is completed for the first time, with any follow-ups not being included in the official duration.

This prop from BetOnline is taking bets on how long it will take Stapleton to sing “brave,” and the over/under is set at 5 seconds.

US National Anthem Length of Word Brave

  • Over 5 seconds -120
  • Under 5 seconds -120

Below are a series of Anthem props that are posted at Bovada, asking which players are coaches will be shown first on the televised broadcast of the Super Bowl while the Star-Spangled Banner is being performed.

We see these types of SB props every year, but Bovada has mixed it up a little by asking who will be shown last, presumably during the closing moments of the first utterance of “brave.”

Who Will be Shown first during Super Bowl National Anthem

  • Travis Kelce -180
  • A.J. Brown +135
