Super Bowl 56 Halftime Markets, Prop Bets and Odds

We’re still several months away from Super Bowl 56 — let alone finding out which teams will be participating in football’s biggest event. However, that hasn’t stopped a lot of people from being excited after the halftime performers were announced last week.

Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will be joining forces for what will surely be one of the biggest halftime performances of all time. Each of those artists could’ve easily headlined the event on their own, however, it’s clear that the NFL is going all out for next year’s Super Bowl.

One thing that a lot of people have been discussing the Super Bowl 56 halftime show is what the setlist will look like. Whether we see some collaborations or solo performances, each artist has a catalogue with a lot of songs that people want to hear.

Fortunately, Bovada has released odds on what some of the setlist could look like, as well as other prop bet markets. Obviously, nothing is guaranteed, but it certainly adds fun to the speculation.

Check out the full list of markets on Bovada.lv.

Super Bowl 56 Halftime Odds: Which Song Will Eminem Perform First?

Odds via Bovada as of Wednesday, October 6

  • “Lose Yourself” (+300)
  • “My Name Is” (+300)
  • “The Real Slim Shady” (+300)
  • “Without Me” (+350)
  • “Stan” (+600)

It’s hard to find a rapper with as many hits as Eminem, which makes it tough to figure out which song he’ll perform first at Super Bowl 56. The last time he performed a full concert was back in 2019 during his Kamikaze Tour. Out of the five above songs, “Stan” usually showed up first on setlist while “Lose Yourself” was typically saved for the encore.

Obviously, Super Bowl halftime shows work a bit differently than normal concerts, so Eminem could perform anything as long as it gets the crowd pumped up. There’s also the distinct possibility that the first song he performs is not on the above list.

Number of Songs Performed During 2022 Halftime

Odds via Bovada as of Wednesday, October 6

  • Over 7.5 (-120)
  • Under 7.5 (-120)

Super Bowl 56 Halftime Odds: Who Sings First?

Odds via Bovada as of Wednesday, October 6

  • Mary J. Blige (+175)
  • Kendrick Lamar (+250)
  • Snoop Dogg (+350)
  • Dr. Dre (+500)
  • Eminem (+600)

Whenever you have five solo artists performing, it’s tough to decide who’ll be the first one on stage. When it comes to Super Bowl 56, Bovada is leaning towards Mary J. Blige being the first one out at +175 odds. She would certainly be a fitting choice considering how she has eight multi-platinum albums and over 100 million record sales to her name. Besides, a song like “Family Affair” would be the perfect one to get the show started.

Kendrick Lamar has the second-best odds (+250) at performing first, which makes sense since he’s the “newest” face of the five (despite his debut Section.80 turning 10 years old this year). He also has a slew of singles that could open the show before bigger names like Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Dr. Dre show up.

Other Halftime Prop Bets

While the above markets are the biggest that Bovada is offering so far, the sportsbook also has other interesting options available. For example, Bovada says that there are -150 odds that Eminem will make some sort of a political statement, which indicates that there’s a pretty good chance that he’ll say something.

There’s also +250 odds that Snoop Dogg will smoke cannabis on stage. Anyone who’s familiar with him knows about Snoop’s love for all things green. Super Bowl 56 is being held at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California where marijuana is legal, so it’d be far from a shock to see the Doggfather lighting one up on stage.

Lastly, there are +150 odds that all five artists will collaborate together. While there isn’t a pre-existing song with all five of them on it, they’re all talented enough to either come up with a new song or add their own verses to one that’s already been around. Regardless of what happens, it seems pretty likely that the quintet will share the stage at some point.
