2015 Super Bowl prop bets: Deflated ball, TV ratings, Katy Perry, crotch grabbing and more

Do you have money to burn? Vegas will gladly take it.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL and gambling go hand in hand. It is especially true with the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl brings all sorts of prop bets -- who will be the MVP, who score first, how long the national anthem will take, who will win the coin toss and more.

Basically, if you have money to burn, Vegas will try and find a way to get you to give it to them.

That brings us to this year's Super bowl prop bets. They range from whether or not Idina Menzel will miss a word while singing the national anthem to mentioning deflated balls on the air to Marshawn Lynch grabbing his crotch again.

Here is a list of a whole bunch of prop bets, but these won't include actual football bets. I'm not including anything that actually happens on the field.

These prop bets come from Bovada.
