The Super Bowl is the most wagered-on event in the world for plenty of reasons, but one shines through: the props.

What color of Gatorade will get poured on the winning head coach? Who will the halftime show artist (Rihanna) bring out for guest appearances? What will the first or last song be? Who will win Super Bowl MVP? Heads or tails for the coin flip? Will there be an octopus?

Betting on these markets is an unmatched tradition.

Another interesting novelty prop: Will there be a power outage at Super Bowl LVII: Chiefs vs. Eagles?

There has been one power outage in Super Bowl history, when the Ravens played the 49ers in 2013's Super Bowl XLVII. That Super Bowl saw a 34-minute delay. The Ravens led, 28-6, before the blackout, after which the 49ers stormed back for 17 unanswered points to make it 28-23.

The 49ers then had an opportunity to win the game down, 34-29, inside the red zone but a controversial no-call on fourth down gave the ball — and the game — back to Baltimore.

Will There Be a Power Outage? Super Bowl LVII

This market is only available at FanDuel in Ontario, Canada. 

The only marketplace available here is on there to be a power outage during the game — you can't bet the inverse.

+750 odds imply a probability of 12% that a power outage takes place.

Those, quite frankly, are horrible odds. With one Super Bowl outage in history out of 56 games, those odds should be somewhere closer to +5500, especially with a far newer facility hosting the game this year.

Sunday's game will take place at State Farm Stadium in Arizona, which was built in 2006. The Superdome in New Orleans — which experienced the power outage in 2013 — had opened in 1975.
