Superbowl = Super bets

While listening to sports talk radio this morning, one of the topics of conversation was, ofSuperbowl Hat course, the Superbowl.  However, rather than focusing on the question of who would win, the focus was on the prop bets for the Superbowl.  While most non-football fans can appreciate the Superbowl and surrounding activities (parties/performances/commercials/etc.), prop bets can add a little excitement to the Superbowl for even the most lackadaisical sports fan.
