If you bet the under on the length of this year’s National Anthem at Super Bowl LIV, cash those tickets. Singer and actress Demi Lovato performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl LIV.
For the prop bettors, Lovato took 1:49 to sing the National Anthem, according to Bovada. Vegas Sportsbooks had the line at set 1:55 heading into Sunday night.
