The 30 Most Absurd Super Bowl XLIII Prop Bets

Sports betting used to be a real man’s leisure activity, where one would bet on the outcome of the game and nothing else. Nowadays, Super Bowl bets can be placed on anything, ranging from “How many types of food will John Madden mention during the game?” to “How Long Will It Take Jennifer Hudson to Sing The National Anthem?”

Personally, I think betting on anything other than who’s going to win is ridiculous; but if you need that money-fueled excitement – and the 7-point spread in favor of the Steelers doesn’t do it for you – take a look at these 30 utterly absurd Super Bowl XLIII prop bets.

  8. ED, move your left pinky 7/16 of an inch to the left and push the caps lock button. Oh, and you're a little bit too hateful for my liking. You're an american aren't you? A little american troll sitting there grumbling to himself because you don't have any friends and the only human contact at your disposal is the enemies you can make online but then you figure out that you're still alone so you curl up in the corner and cry like a little american bitch. LOL you're funny and I hate you.
