Super Bowl Sunday is a great time to lay down a wager or two, provided you keep it within reason.
I have no problem with putting a few bucks on the game among friends, or buying a few squares in a Super Bowl box pool, but in case you're not aware, there are websites out there that are currently offering odds on some the DUMBEST bets we've ever seen.
These bets, listed as "Super Bowl XLV Specials" on betting site Bodog.com, are all totally real, and you can go to the website right now and drop your money on them. But fair warning: these bets are for hardcore degenerate gamblers. One of those dudes who's worn the same raincoat for three weeks straight and dreams about the ponies the morning of their kids' graduation. Either way, straight from Bodog.com, here are some of the dumbest Super Bowl bets, and the odds.
