Are You Betting The Super Bowl National Anthem? This Intel Might Help You

Videos by OutKick

Are you betting the OVER/UNDER on the Super Bowl LV national anthem time? Sports reporter Zach Maskavich of Orlando TV station WESH has footage from outside Raymond James Stadium that might be of interest to you.

Maskavich used his phone stopwatch Friday to time a test run by anthem singers Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan. The OVER is 4-5-1 in its last 10 heading into Tampa. Demi Lovato smoked through the Super Bowl LIV anthem in 1:49, a full six seconds under the betting line of 1:55.

Lady Gaga in 2016 (2:22) is the last singer to turn in a performance over the 2:16 mark that the Church-Sullivan test run clocked in at. Alicia Keys still holds the longest anthem performance (2:36) going all the way back to 1990.

The consensus online is disbelief that Maskavich would post a video of the test run since he could’ve bet the anthem without announcing the test run to the world. Now the cat is out of the bag and books can adjust their lines accordingly.
