Taylor Swift Super Bowl 58 Prop Bets: Here’s Why U.S. Sportsbooks Are Prohibited From Offering These Novelty Wagers

Taylor Swift-based Super Bowl 58 prop bets have been widely shared on social media this week, but is it actually legal to bet on them in America?

Taylor Swift has been heavily intertwined in the story of the current NFL season, and that will continue into Super Bowl 58. With Travis Kelce’s Kansas City Chiefs having made it to the big game, Swift is expected to be present in Allegiant Stadium, supporting the Chiefs.

Combine her expected presence with the heavy prop betting nature of the Super Bowl, and Swift-based prop bets have been a big part of the conversation in the build-up to the game in Las Vegas.

However, when you look at legal sportsbooks in America, props for Swift are hard to find. Let’s examine why that’s the case, and what Swift-based props have been published around the world.

Is It Legal To Bet on Taylor Swift Super Bowl 58 Prop Bets in America?

The simple answer when it comes to whether prop bets on Taylor Swift for the Super Bowl are legal in America is no, they are not.

The reason why was explained by Jeffrey Benson, the Director of Operations at Circa Sportsbook in Las Vegas, in the aftermath of the NFC and AFC Conference Championship Games.

For a type of bet to be considered legal in America, it has to be approved by the Gaming Control Board within each state. That is why you see variations in the types of bets that you can make in different areas of the country.

Given that individual states typically demand that any bets being offered are tied to an official statistic or outcome, it means props such as “How many times will Taylor Swift be shown?” cannot be offered because they are not handled by an official statistic.

Therefore, most of the bets you see offered that involve Swift directly in them are coming from offshore or overseas sportsbooks. Many of the earlier reported props this week were screenshots from Canadian sportsbooks, with more offshore books appearing in recent days.

Where sportsbooks can get clever though is giving player props that have a tie-in to Swift in some other way. They can do this by offering lines that have some kind of relationship with a song or an album name.

For example, will Travis Kelce have over or under 89 receiving yards? They have to be a little careful on that front, but there are ways sportsbooks can get creative if they want to.
