Bookies have refused to accept bets on the duration of the US national anthem ahead of the Super Bowl game on February 7. The day before, a TV reporter working near the stadium in Tampa heard a rehearsal of the national song, recorded it and made the information public on the Internet. Prior to this, bets were accepted from the players that the anthem would sound more and less than 1 minute 58 seconds. However, after the journalist published information about the rehearsal – the duration of the anthem was 2 minutes 16 seconds – the bookmakers abandoned this line. Recall that during the coronavirus pandemic, bookmakers began to accept exotic bets. And earlier, Betteam analysts spoke about making money on bets.
