Super Bowl National Anthem Odds & Props

Last Updated: Feb 1, 2024

Super Bowl 58 is set to be the most heavily bet-on sporting event ever, which isn’t a surprise given the growth of legal online sports betting and the wide assortment of props you can find action on.

One of my favorite Super Bowl prop bets takes place before the game actually kicks off and involves a little less luck than selecting heads or tails.

There is generally an edge to be found when betting on the length of the Super Bowl national anthem, and all it takes is a little bit of research and an observant eye on social media.

I’ve compiled some initial research below, but there’s usually a National Anthem practice run in the days leading up to the Big Game, so keep an eye on Twitter for any information that gets leaked.

Who’s Singing the Super Bowl’s National Anthem?

Country music superstar Reba McEntire will have the honor of singing “The Star-Spangled Banner" before the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers take the field at Allegiant Stadium in Super Bowl 58.

The 68-year-old “Queen of Country" has sold over 75 million records and topped the charts 25 times during her illustrious career. She has also won three Grammys, most recently taking home the award for Best Roots Gospel Album in 2018 with “Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope."

Last year, Reba became one of the latest coaches on the hit show “The Voice."

How Long Does It Take To Sing the National Anthem?

In recent years, we have seen Super Bowl National Anthem singers draw things out a little more, which makes sense given the big stage.

Here are the times for the last five years of Super Bowl National Anthem renditions:

Reba McEntire Scouting Report

Unlike last year with Chris Stapleton, we have a lot of prior data to assess.

Reba has sung the National Anthem numerous times throughout her career, including at the World Series, an NFL Thanksgiving Day game, and the National Finals Rodeo multiple times.

Being able to watch these prior performances on YouTube is a helpful exercise. However, we almost have too many data points to look at. Some renditions come in around 80-83 seconds, while others are cut slightly shorter or extend to about 1:30.

Regardless, we know that this year’s rendition should fall well below the two-minute mark.

Super Bowl National Anthem Over/Under Prediction

Reba McEntire to Sing Super Bowl National Anthem in 1:30

The consensus Super Bowl National Anthem odds opened at 83.5 seconds and were quickly bet up to the current line of 90.5 seconds, which is a bit longer than Reba’s typical performance length.

And while the magnitude and stage of the Super Bowl tend to lead some singers to add flair and hold their notes longer, I’m backing Reba to come in just under this number.

National Anthem Super Bowl Bet

National Anthem Under 1:31 (TBD) at Caesars

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Super Bowl National Anthem prop is off the board at the moment, but I would feel comfortable taking the Under on any line set at 1:31 or lower.

From what I’ve seen, this should be the fastest rendition we’ve seen in the past five years.
