In anticipation of the much-awaited Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show featuring the King of R&B, Usher, BetUS.com – the original online sportsbook marking its 30th football season this year - is thrilled to announce an array of betting odds for fans worldwide. Usher, an eight-time Grammy-winning artist, will headline the Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show, promising a performance of a lifetime at the sold-out Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
Fans can place bets on a multitude of aspects related to Usher’s performance. The odds for the song “Yeah!” featuring Lil Jon and Ludacris to kick off the performance stand at 1/2 (or -200), making it a huge favorite. Meanwhile, the international hit “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” is positioned as a +400 underdog.
Other song performance possibilities include the fan-favorite “Superstar” from the 20th-anniversary album, “My Way” with the potential appearance of Jermaine Dupri, and “You Remind Me”, without which Usher can't do his signature handstand and chain swing.
In terms of collaborations, BetUS offers odds of 1/3 (or -300) for Usher to perform with any of the Black Eyed Peas, highlighting the possibility of Will.I.Am returning to the Super Bowl stage. There’s also a 1/2 (-200) chance that Alicia Keys will join Usher for a rendition of “My Boo”, enhancing the romantic atmosphere of the evening.
A range of prop bets are also available for fans, such as the over/under on the number of songs in his setlist at 8.5, the number of backup dancers at 20.5, and the number of Instagram posts Usher will make on the day of the Super Bowl at 4.5.
Usher’s halftime performance, with its smooth glides, handstanding dance sequences, and potential special guests, is poised to captivate the global audience, offering a unique blend of nostalgia and contemporary appeal. The artist’s connection to Las Vegas through several residencies and past Super Bowl experience further elevates the anticipation.
Jay-Z, whose Roc Nation Company is producing the halftime show, remarked, “Usher is the ultimate artist and showman. His remarkable journey has propelled him to one of the grandest stages in the world. I can’t wait to see the magic.” The sentiment is echoed by Seth Dudowsky, NFL’s head of music, who praised Usher as an icon whose music has left an indelible mark on the cultural landscape.
BetUS is equally excited to be part of this historic event, providing fans with a plethora of betting opportunities to enhance their Super Bowl experience. "Launching these unique prop bets underscores our commitment to enhancing the fan experience, combining the thrill of the game with the spectacle of music," said Tim Williams, Director of Public Affairs for BetUS.
Similar to the boost in sales and streams experienced by Rihanna after her halftime show, Usher’s upcoming performance is expected to achieve record-breaking results, especially with the release of his ninth studio album, Coming Home.
“We’re also seeing more people betting on the halftime show earlier than ever before,” Williams says.
In conclusion, as Usher prepares to deliver an unforgettable show, BetUS invites fans to join in the excitement by exploring the diverse betting options available.
