Get your stopwatch ready. Before the kickoff of Super Bowl 51 you will have a chance to win some money by betting on the length of the national anthem. This year country star Luke Bryan will be singing the Star-Spangled Banner.
How long will it take Luke Bryan to sing the National Anthem?
- Over/Under 120 seconds (Bookmaker.eu)
- Over/Under 127.5 seconds (Sportsbook.ag)
- Over/Under 129 seconds (Bovada)
The bookmakers do not agree on the length. Probably because Bryan has sung the anthem on numerous occasions with varying lengths.
Here is Bryan singing the Star-Spangled Banner at the 2012 MLB All-Star game. He easily goes under the posted time. There are other versions online of Bryan singing the song but many are at concerts, not national televised sporting events.
The UNDER is 7-3 in the last ten Super Bowls.
Will Luke Bryan forget or omit a word from the National Anthem?
- Yes +400
- No -700
In addition to betting on the length of the anthem you can wager on whether or not the singer will forget any of the words. “No” is a heavy favorite, which makes sense as Bryan has sung the song many times and if needed he will cheat. The country star got in trouble for reading words to the anthem off his hand at the MLB All-Star game.
Will Bryan’s version of the anthem go over/under?
It’s almost Super Sunday
