The Sonics Rising staff make Super Bowl XLIX prop bets

New, comments

Because predicting winners is boring

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Tomorrow is the biggest day of the NFL season. Instead of simply making boring predictions on who will win (Go Hawks), we decided to spice things up this year. Several members of the staff decided to bet on a handful of various prop bets. The objective here is not so much to win, but rather to just not lose, as whoever gets the least amount of props correct will have to do something embarrassing on the site. We're not sure what that is yet, but it should be fun.

UPDATE: RESULTS ARE IN. Gold denotes a correct answer.
