Who’s Ready For Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl Halftime Performance?

It’s been over a decade since Justin Timberlake made his 2nd appearance at a Super Bowl halftime show after performing as part on ‘NSYNC 3 years prior. Needless to say his Super Bowl 38 show was a far bit more memorable than his first. Not for any particular musical reason but more so due to Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction. Having him back this year is a surprise move by the NFL after the nipple heard round the world brought a lot of heat on the league and broadcast itself. Unlikely to be invited back this year is Janet, sorry Miss Jackson. But miracles do happen and fans can even profit on such an unlikely move via Super Bowl props.

While there are thousands of props on offer based on actual on field performances, many casual fans prefer the more lighthearted entertainment options on offer. Maybe you’re even a Justin Timberlake or Pink super fan and feel like you have the knowledge to beat the bank. Many of these novelty props revolve specifically around the musical acts Sunday night. Bets on America The Beautiful, National Anthem and Halftime Show compliment Super Bowl Sundays party atmosphere perfectly.

One of the best super bowl prop bets this year will be on who Justin Timberlake will be flanked by during his 13 minute performance. As mentioned before, Janet Jackson is a longshot, the longest one in fact at +2000 odds. JT super fans might be more interested in an ‘NSYNC reunion which oddsmakers think is a possibility at +1000. With a $100 wager netting a $10,000 return this prop is one of the more tempting ones. Made even more intriguing after reports surfaced on the 1st that members of ‘NSYNC had been spotted around downtown Minnesota, though these are unconfirmed. Timberlake claims his band The Tennessee Kids will be the only people joining him onstage, which would be kind of lame. Surprise guests have become not only a staple of recent shows but they often outshine the featured act. You can fin all this odds and more on Bovada.

Whether or not JT will have any surprises remains to be seen, but one thing can be safely assumed. He will be wearing shoes. And you can bet on what color they will be! Oh what a wonderful world we live in, hell of a time to be alive. White shoes are the most likely choice according to experts, while option such as brown, blue, green, red & longshot yellow are also included. More of a headgear person than a shoe connoisseur? We got you covered. Odds on Timberlake to wear a hat are +350 which would be a pretty nice reward for backers and fans of hats alike.

Rounding out the Halftime props of note will be which song Mr. Timberlake decides to open with. Recent hit & fan favorite ”Can’t Stop The Feeling” is listed as the most likely choice of opening numbers at +350. With “Rock Your Body” +450, “Filthy” +450 and “SexyBack” +500 following close behind. The latter might be the sharpest bet of the night, paying out $500 on a $100 bet. Not bad numbers for Timberlake’s most popular single to date.

Of course if none of these props get you going there are a ton of other weird things you can bet on this weekend. Will Pink be showing off her cleavage? Or might she take flight during her National Anthem performance? Will Leslie Odom Jr wear a tie? Will underdog Team Ruff lay a canine smackdown on bitter rivals Team Fluff during the Puppy Bowl? While the answers to such truly important questions and more will have to wait until Super Bowl Sunday to be answered, at least we can bet on them in the meantime.
