While football fans and pundits analyze, re-analyze, and over analyze Sunday’s match-up between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, a great many others are preoccupied with Super Bowl commercials, half-time shows, and the Harbaugh family. Of course, none of this is lost on the odds makers, who have done their best to cater to true football fans as well as fans of popular culture. So if you are an individual less interested in the outcome of Super Bowl XLVII and more interested in Alicia Keys, Beyonce, or TV Ratings, the following are just a few Crazy Super Bowl Bets to whet your betting appetite.

How many average viewers will the game have?
Over 111 Million Viewers -120
Under 111 Million Viewers -120
The last two Super Bowls exceeded 111 million viewers so it is safe to assume this year’s championship game will as well.
What will the TV Rating be for the Super Bowl?
Over 46 Nielsen Rating (-140)
Under 46 Nielsen Rating (+100)
The Super Bowl Nielsen rating hit 46 each of the last two years. With the Harbaugh’s matching wits this time around it should reach or crest that number once again.

Under 3 Times (-120)
“Thank God”, “God is amazing”, “Praise God”, “Glory to God”…I’m thinking over.

Baltimore Ravens -170
San Francisco 49ers +130

Let’s hope they use Super Baugh once and call it good.
How long will the post game handshake/hug last between Jim Harbaugh & John Harbaugh?
Over 7 seconds (+100)
