(Las Vegas, NV) — You can wager on whether the Baltimore Ravens or the San Francisco 49ers will win Sunday’s Super Bowl, but many Las Vegas sports books are offering the chance to put your money on more trivial aspects of the game.

Prop bets are a hot ticket here in Sin City, and the LVH resort’s race and sports book alone lists hundreds of proposition wagers.

You can put money on whether either team will score three consecutive times, which team will win the coin toss, and the shortest touchdown of the game. There’s also a prop bet on what hairstyle Beyonce will wear during her halftime performance.

The Gaming Control Board says just over $93 million was wagered on the Super Bowl at Nevada’s casinos last year.
