Super Bowl XLVI is in 6 days and for those who love football, this is the best holiday of the year — but this post isn’t about football.

It’s about the dark and twisted world of degenerate gambling. 🙂 For those of you who have no experience with this,* don’t stop reading*! Those of you who know a degenerate gambler know that we will bet on ANYTHING. It’s our curse that allows us to make even monotonous life events into exciting expected outcomes at potential financial peril.

I thought some of you would get a kick out of this year’s Super Bowl proposition bets. These “prop bets” as they are known are the seediest and most humorous bets you can make in all of sports. I’ll stop typing now and let you read on…

**I dare you to make it to the bottom of the list to see how deep the rabbit hole actually goes…**

*Quick Lesson (skip if you know sports betting)*

* In sports betting the payout and resulting “odds” are calculated in the US by listing payout amounts based on $100. Favorites to win are indicated by a minus symbol to indicate how much you must wager to WIN $100, underdogs are usually indicated by a plus symbol or no symbol to indicate how much you win if you wager $100.*

*For example, here’s how you’d read the first two bets:*

*NYG scores first -120 (If you think the Giants will score first you must wager $120 to win $100)*

*NE scores first 100 (Sometimes written as +100. If you think the Patriots will score first you must wager $100 to win $100)*

*An over/under bet will have a fixed measurable component like 25 points, 300 yards, 90 seconds, etc. and you are betting if that actual number will be over or under the listed number. If the bet is for the over, the letter “o” will appear before the amount and the letter “u” will appear if the bet is for the under.*

I’ve highlighted a few that I find interesting,** red** means funny or interesting,** green** means I’m probably going to take them. 😉
