"The Song Remains The Same" was part of a chart-topping album by Led Zeppelin, but when it comes to prop bets for the Super Bowl, bettors may be singing a different tune. One of the more popular offerings among hundreds of prop bets available for Super Bowl LV is the length of "The Star Spangled Banner."
Those hoping to cash in before Sunday's 6:30 p.m. kickoff at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium want to know whether the anthem duet by R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan and country music star Eric Church will go Over or Under the established betting line that many sportsbooks listed at 1 minute, 59 seconds.
It's the first duet since Super Bowl XL, when Aaron Neville and Aretha Franklin clocked in at 2:08. That alone gives bettors reason to wonder if this year's performance will easily exceed two minutes. Demi Lovato needed 1:49 to complete her rendition a year ago while Gladys Knight finished in 2:01 the previous year.
