Super Bowl 2022: What Will be the Length of the National Anthem?

There are dozens of odd wagers that you can place that don't even take place during the actual Super Bowl.

One of them is wagering on how long the National Anthem will be. Mickey Guyton will be singing the National Anthem. If you're unfamiliar with Guyton, she's an American country singer that was raised in Texas.

Guyton has been nominated for four Grammys and was the first Black woman to be nominated for a solo country performance Grammy award. Oddly enough, she was also rejected from Season 8 of American Idol.

But the more important stuff for sports bettors is below. Will Guyton go over or under 95 seconds during her rendition for the National Anthem?

Length of National Anthem

Over 95 Seconds -130 (Bet $130 to win $100)

I'm not going to sit here and act like I know exactly how Guyton will perform. But I've done some research to make me believe she'll go over the 95 seconds. The time begins when the first word is sung to the last note sung. This is one of the shortest totals that we've seen for a National Anthem length bet.

The last nine artists have had a total of at least 1:47, which is 107 seconds.

However, she's has performed the National Anthem recently at the 2021 National Memorial Day Concert. Maybe it was nerves or maybe it wasn't, but she went way under that 95 seconds mark in that rendition.

She might end up holding her notes longer for the Super Bowl, but she doesn't really add any dramatic flares to her singing and should get through it fast, knowing everyone just wants to start playing the game.

In the last decade, the National Anthem performances have been getting longer. You'd also like to think that Guyton will want to show off her vocals a little bit more knowing this will be the biggest performance of her life, in front of millions of people.

Therefore, I have to go with the Over 95 seconds here. Every performance has gone at least 107 seconds in recent memory and I'm not just going to look at one performance to determine that she's going to go under.

Let her show off to the millions of people watching and cash in on the over!
