The national anthem in the United States is the song known as “The Star-Spangled Banner”. The lyrics of this song come from “Defence of Fort M’Henry,” a poem written in 1814.

Rewind to the 1941-1942 season, and the NFL started playing it before every game. If you’re a history buff, you’ll recognize the importance of those years – World War II. With that in full effect, the NFL joined the MLB as the next professional league to play the national anthem before each game. 

As time passed, the NFL started having high-profile guests sing the anthem at the Super Bowl. This tradition began in 1967. Now, the Super Bowl National Anthem length has since became a prop bet for many each year. Just like Super Bowl gatorade shower props and coin toss props!

Super Bowl National Anthem Length Prop Data

As you can see from the table above, the over/under data tracking didn’t begin until Super Bowl 41 and Billy Joel’s appearance. Since then, we’ve had the following results:

  • Over: 9 times
  • Under: 6 times
  • Push: 2 times

So, like many of these fun Super Bowl prop bets, it’s nearly a 50/50 chance. For historical context, the average national anthem across 53 points of data is 1:43. However, you’ll notice that more recently, it’s gotten closer to the two-minute mark.

It is expected that the over/under national anthem spread will be set at around 1 minute, 50 seconds. It is worth noting that the national anthem is normally timed from when the singer starts singing. Not when the music starts playing.

So, how long will Reba McEntire’s rendition be in Las Vegas, Nevada?
