MORE: The best, worst Super Bowl national anthem performers all timeIf you count Knight’s anthem after the first brave, the record would show she finished at 1:49, according to Bovada and OddsShark. Most prop bets had the length at 1:50, so the second brave would have sent it way over. While most books drew the line at the under, BetOnline.AG is paying out both the over and under. One of the most famous Super Bowl prop bets is the length of the national anthem. Before Super Bowl 53, there was some controversy over whether Gladys Knight went over or under after she sang “brave” twice at the end of the “Star-Spangled Banner.”Oddly enough, the placement of the second brave was crucial to the prop bet as she went under after saying the first one, and went over with the second one. “Most sports books are choosing to pay under bettors, while some are sticking with their initial ruling on the over. But BetOnline.ag is going another route, and they’re currently the only sports book paying out both sides of the bet due to the controversial ending,” the company said a statement.BetOnline.ag is predicting a six figure loss because of the decision.JUST IN: There’s controversy over the Gladys Knight national anthem.One sportsbook graded the OVER as a win and then took it back.Apparently, she might have said “BRAVE” twice.First brave would have made it the UNDER. End of second brave would have made it the OVER.— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) February 3, 2019Some books are grading the national anthem as an UNDER, ruling that the song ended before Gladys Knight said “brave” for a second time.— OddsShark (@OddsShark) February 3, 2019As we mentioned earlier, this prop bet is among the favorites, so there are millions of dollars at stake with this otherwise seemingly silly decision on two braves.
