The Super Bowl is about a lot more than just football, beer, and funny commercials—it also offers a chance to make some of the weirdest prop bets ever. Sam Greenspan lists 11 especially crazy ones—all of which he bet on—on 11 Points:

  • National anthem: How long will it take Carrie Underwood to sing? The over/under is 1:42.
  • Superdome: How many times will announcers mention Hurricane Katrina between kickoff and the final whistle? The fine print: Only the exact phrase "Hurricane Katrina" counts.

  • Basketball connection: Will LeBron James make more free throws on Saturday than there are points in the first quarter of the Super Bowl?
  • Kim Kardashian: You know CBS will show her—but how many live pictures, during the game itself?
  • Pete Townshend: How many times will the Who guitarist do his legendary windmill move on camera?
  • MVP: The choices for whom he'll thank first include coach, no one, family, God, and teammates.
  • Kim Kardashian, part 2: Will her measurements (36-24-39) or her boyfriend Reggie Bush's total yardage be larger?
