That's how much money gamblers wagered at legal sports books in Nevada on last year's Super Bowl between the New York Giants and New England Patriots, according to USA Today. When the wagers placed with offshore, online sports books and corner store, back-room bookies are factored in, then the number must truly be staggering. At least some of that whopping total amount was wagered on the multitude of "prop bets."

While a bettor can still wager on the actual outcome of the game, there are also plenty of specific "proposition bets" that don't necessarily have anything to do with the final result. Will the coin toss land on "heads" or "tails" or will a player other than the starting quarterbacks attempt a pass? How many rushing yards will the fullback rack up? These bets can bring drama to almost every single aspect of the game -- and even the broadcast.

Will Alicia Keys pull a Christina Aguilera and screw up the National Anthem? What will be the color of the Gatorade that gets dumped on the winning coach? How long will the postgame hug between the Harbaugh brothers last?

If you have an insatiable urge to make virtually every play or occurrence a win-loss situation, then here are some of the prop bets for Super Bowl XLVII.
