On Sunday February 6, after all the Super Bowl betting has been recorded, just before the kick-off to Super Bowl XLV, just before history begins write itself in archives of NFL lore, before all of the lightbulbs flash and the war between the trenches begins, America will stop. America will pause, they will remove their caps, some will place their hands on their hearts, and they rise to their feet, for Christina Aguilera.
Christina Aguilera will take center stage to sing the National Anthem before the Super Bowl takes place. It’s a seemingly routine act, but for the Super Bowl, it has generated loads of interest in the gaming industry. This is the beauty of the big game.
We all know Christina can sing her ass off, you don’t need to fire up Genie in a bottle on Youtube to know that, though, it’s not a bad idea, she’s smoking hot in that video. And for the record, it’s a lucky man that gets to rub her the right way. But as far as NFL betting goes, it’s a lucky man who correctly guesses just how long the diva will take to sing the National Anthem.
Under normal circumstances, Christina can run through the anthem between one and half to two minutes. But it’s that grey area just before the two minute mark that bettors are concerned about.
Here’s some footage of a young Christina Aguilera singing the national anthem for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals with the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Chicago Blackhawks in 1992. She was 11.
Well, a lot has changed since then with Christina, she still has the voice, but you can expect her to add a little more gusto and a little more flare into Sunday’s rendition. Bodog has props on just how long the diva will sing for, among others.

Bettors will definitely be putting some money where Christina’s mouth is at come Sunday. And you can be sure Cowboys Stadium will break into a frenzy once she hits “the home of the brave”. Personally, I’ll be brave enough to say yes to the Cowboy hat, and take her at over a buck fifty four.
You gotta love the Super Bowl!
