A debilitating series of Super Bowl prop bets

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

OBNUG does not condone gambling because it ruins lives and bank accounts, but in the rare occasion that there's a Super Bowl and you're having friends over, feel free to go to town. The Super Bowl offers a unique gambling opportunity because you can bet on the craziest things, and if there's one bit of investment advice I've followed through the years, it is that the crazier something is the more money I spend on it. Have some fun with these prop bets for Sunday's big game, and spend your M&Ms-filling-in-for-real-money wisely.

*Unless otherwise noted, you double your money if you get a gamble right, and you lose your money if you get it wrong. In the case of odds like 4/1, you get four times your money if you get it right. Proceed.
