When it comes to the Super Bowl, you can bet on just about anything.
What color will Beyonce’s footwear be? Will there be an earthquake? Will Mike Carey be wrong about a challenge? Will Peyton Manning be seen crying at any point during the broadcast?
The prop bets for the Big Game cover anything and everything, and unsurprisingly considering the level of attention Cam Newton receives, many of the bets surround him. One of the craziest involves his personal life.
From Sports Interaction, via OddsShark.com, the bet reads: “Will Cam Newton propose to his girlfriend on the field after the game?”
If you want to let it ride, “yes” is a huge underdog at (+1200), meaning you would win $1,200 on a $100 bet. “No” is set at (-3625), meaning you’d need to be crazy and bet $3,625 just to win $100.
Newton and his girlfriend, Kia Proctor, welcomed their first son, Chosen, into the world a little more than a month ago:
The couple’s relationship is kept pretty private, so it’s impossible to know whether or not a proposal is on the horizon. Although if anyone were going to do this, it would probably be Newton, who is decidedly unique and typically does things in his own, creative way.
Nearly a decade after Ian Johnson’s Fiesta Bowl proposal, will Newton do the same, setting the internet ablaze in the process?
Probably not, but goofy prop bets like this are the reason we love the Super Bowl.
