Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Patriots are 2.5-point favorites to beat the Rams. The total, meanwhile, sits at 56.5 points. As of this writing, 77% of the public betting tickets are on the Patriots to cover the point spread.

Gladys Knight Length of National Anthem

The over/under for this prop bet is 109.5 seconds (so 1 minute 49.5 seconds), with the over carrying juice of -150 and the under listed with +110 odds. P!nk sung the National Anthem last year in 1:53, which was the second-shortest time since Kelly Clarkson’s 1:34 mark in 2012 (which was the fastest time sung over the last 10 years).

Lady Gaga went 2:09 in 2016, Idina Menzel went 2:04 in 2015 and Renee Fleming went 1:54 in 2014. Knight sung the national anthem in 1991 and it took her only 92 seconds so if you’re taking a flier on the National Anthem prop this year, there’s value in the under.

Prediction: Under 109.5 seconds

Will Any Scoring Drive Take Less Time Than the National Anthem

The odds for “Yes” are -160 while the odds for “No” are +120. Thus, if you’re a $100 bettor, you’d have to wager $160 just to win $100 on yes, but you’d win $120 for every $100 you wager on “No” and no scoring drive takes less time than the National Anthem.

Even though there’s not much value in taking “Yes,” I do think either team will take less time to score than it will for Knight to sing the National Anthem. Both teams have proficient offenses and while the Patriots are more methodical offensively than the Rams, Tom Brady long mastered the two-minute offense and could lead a quick scoring drive at the end of the second or fourth quarters. Plus, a turnover in opponent territory could also lead to a quick score, whether it’s a touchdown or a field goal. This happened in the NFC Championship Game when the Saints intercepted the Rams in the first quarter, then kicked a field goal after only four plays and using 1:29 off the clock.

Prediction: “Yes” -160
