The Super Bowl is more than just a football game; it is a cultural event that has introduced a new audience to the NFL. Bookmakers are aware of this trend and have been offering prop bets on Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce since the season’s early weeks. Some of the more unusual options include outfit-related wagers, such as whether Swift will wear another Kristin Juszczyk-designed outfit, the colour of Swift’s top at the game and when she leaves her plane, and whether Swift and Kelce will perform a wedding duet.
Relationship wagers also include the possibility of Kelce proposing to Swift following a Super Bowl victory. Wagers are available on the physical location of the potential proposal, wedding and honeymoon destinations, and whether Swift and Kelce will perform a wedding duet. Olivia Culpo paid for Christian McCaffrey’s mother to be in the Super Bowl suite, and Travis Kelce gave Eagles fans a positive Jason Kelce prediction. Whatever you believe about the Chiefs, Super Bowl Opening Night confirmed it, and Chuck Kingsbury’s ties to Caleb Williams add another wrinkle to the NFL Draft.
Throughout the NFL season, Tony Romo made a name for himself by referring to Swift and Kelce as if they were already married. While you can’t bet on a similar comment during the Super Bowl, the quarterback-turned-color commentator does appear in some prop bets. One line speculates on whether he will refer to his broadcast partner Jim Nantz or Taylor Swift by name first, or which Swift song he will mention first (“Bad Blood” is currently the betting favourite, with “Shake It Off” close behind).
Romo and Nantz are also involved in another bet: who will say Swift’s name first. The latter man, presumably because of his colour commentary duties, is the preferred choice. There are also numerous other random, one-time bets, such as who will go shirtless first, whether Donald Trump mentions Swift on Truth Social on February 11, whether Taylor Swift is shown eating a hot dog, and whether either team will use “Swift” as a play call.
While these prop bets may appear silly and over the top, they are part of the excitement surrounding the Super Bowl, making it an ideal time to pull out all the pop-cultural stops.
