ATLANTIC CITY — Gladys Knight dragged out the last word of the national anthem long enough to ignite a controversy. She initially finished at 1 minute, 49 seconds, but then repeated the last word, which brought the overs into play. Some lines out there were at or around 1:50-1:52. By repeating the last word, she finished it at 2:01. Yikes.
The national anthem prop bet wasn’t offered everywhere, but the bookies who did put a line on it had quite the headache. Offshore sportsbook BetOnline.ag threw up its hands and just paid both sides.
The coin toss was cheered as loudly as Tom Brady’s first interception or Greg Zuerlein’s missed kick at the end. Super Bowl prop bets. American insanity at its best. Here are how some of the most unusual turned out.
