7 Ridiculous Bets You Can Actually Make During the Super Bowl
Super Bowl Sunday is a few days away, and unless you happen to be a laser-focused Seahawks or Patriots fan, that really means two things: eating and gambling. The Super Bowl is the second-biggest eating day of the year in America (behind Thanksgiving) and the single-biggest gambling day. Half of American adults have money riding on the game in one way or another. But the best part about Super Bowl gambling is that you don’t need to know anything about sports to succeed. Even if you just show up for the wings and beer you can still bet on almost everything from fashion choices to Gatorade flavors. So if you’re looking to make your party a bit more interesting, here are seven ridiculous bets you can actually make online.*
