Super Bowl Halftime Show Odds: Put Your Money Where the Music Is

R&B star Usher is the halftime show headliner for Super Bowl 58. To wager on this aspect of the Super Bowl, you’ll need to be located in Canada to get odds from Ontario sportsbooks. No US state currently offers halftime show odds for the Super Bowl.

Odds are offered on several Super Bowl halftime show prop bets, including:

  • Odds for specific songs to be included in the setlist.
  • How many songs (Over/Under) will be on Usher’s setlist.
  • Whether Usher will have any lyrics censored during his SB 58 performance.
  • Which special guest performer(s) will appear with Usher.

For example, the odds are +880 (via FanDuel) that 50 Cent will appear on stage with Usher at some point during the show. Odds are -10000 that Usher will sing his hit song “Yeah” during the performance.

History of the Super Bowl Halftime Show

Even though the Super Bowl is being played in Las Vegas for the first time, no new special betting options are being added for the Big Game this year. For most football fans in the US, there will be no opportunity to place a bet on the halftime show. Only Illinois and Maryland allow wagering on the Super Bowl National Anthem odds.

The first Super Bowl was played in January of 1967 at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. It was an underwhelming halftime show worthy of a game that not many people understood yet. At that time, the NFL and its competition, the American Football League (AFL) were not united. The AFL was considered an inferior group that wouldn’t be able to compete with the seasoned professionals of the NFL. The game proved that to be true when the Green Bay Packers pummeled the Kansas City Chiefs, 35-10.

The first halftime show was performed by the University of Arizona’s marching band and a cheer squad from an Anaheim high school. Yes, really. The game was so unappreciated that the organizers sold the rights to two networks to increase their paltry profits. NBC and CBS broadcast the game, though ratings were still not spectacular.

It wasn’t until 1993 that the halftime show produced an iconic performance at Super Bowl XXVII (the 27th edition). That’s when “The King of Pop” himself, Michael Jackson, put on a show at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. That epic performance by “The Moonwalker” set the standard for Super Bowl performers for years to come.

A few of the noteworthy performers to appear at halftime since it became a spectacle include Boys II Men, U2, Paul McCartney, Prince, Madonna, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga.
