Super Bowl halftime show odds are among the most intriguing exotic prop bets available for the NFL’s biggest game. In this article, we examine where to find odds for the Super Bowl 57 halftime show and what to expect when it comes to betting on that performance.
An estimated 90 million people will tune in to watch Super Bowl 57 this Sunday. The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles will compete to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy as champions of the NFL. While many viewers are interested in that development, there will be millions only concerned with the Super Bowl halftime show prop bets.
This year, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, the Super Bowl halftime show will feature pop music icon Rihanna. The singer of such chart-topping hits as “Umbrella” and “Diamonds” will be the first person born in Barbados to be the headliner at the Big Game.
While many sports fans will be keeping their eyes on game bets and prop bets for Super Bowl LVII, some can slap money down on a prop bet for which Rihanna songs will be featured in the halftime show.

Why Can’t I Wager on the Super Bowl Halftime Show?
Many states don’t allow prop bets or wagering of any kind on non-sports outcome events. For example, while some states will permit odds to be listed for the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, etc., many will not. A halftime show prop bet is not tied to a competition between two teams (obviously), so regulators shy away from permitting those types of bets.
In the future, states may allow prop betting on such “performance” events, but as of now, the regulators are not doing so. You can, however, wager on such non-entertainment event props like the Gatorade Bath, which is available from many sportsbooks in the US, like FanDuel, BetMGM, and DraftKings.
