Betting line set for Lady Gaga's Super Bowl 50 national anthem length
Lady Gaga will sing the national anthem at Super Bowl 50 before the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos. Bovada has set the line at over/under 2 minutes and 20 seconds for Gaga's performance length.
Last year, Tony award winner Idina Menzel went over the Bovada prop bet odds of two minutes and one second as she sang he song in two minutes and four seconds. The previous year Renee Fleming sang the national anthem in one minute and 54 seconds to get under the two minutes, 20 seconds line that was set by Bovada in the lead-up to Super Bowl XLVIII.
Alicia Keys sang the longest national anthem of the last 10 years with her two-minute, 35-second rendition ahead of Super Bowl XLVII.
Billy Joel has the shortest national anthem of the last 10 Super Bowls when he breezed through "Oh say can you see" to "and the home of the brave" in one minute and 30 seconds.
