Idina Menzel National Anthem length prop bet suspended

Sunday February 1st, 2015

If you were betting on the length of Idina Menzel's National Anthem at Super Bowl XLIX, you're out of luck. 

Sportsbook has suspended the prop bet after it was suspected that an insider tipped off the length from Menzel's rehearsals. The over/under had been set at 122.5 seconds, and after Sportsbook suddenly took multiple max bets on the over, it figured something was up.

Menzel was announced as the National Anthem singer on Jan. 16. This is the Frozen star's second time singing the song at a major American sports event recently, having also done the anthem at the 2014 MLB All-Star Game. 

You can check out some non-suspended prop bets here, such as the riveting question of what halftime performer Katy Perry will be wearing during her first song.
