The only two we all agree on: Opera singer Renee Fleming will wear gloves for the National Anthem, Eli Manning will be shown on TV at least twice

Super Bowl XLVIII is nearly upon us, and with the big game comes over-eating, funny commercials, and lots of gambling.

While TheWrap does not endorse wagering in states or countries where sports betting is illegal, we decided to have some fun with ESPN “SportsNation” hosts Max Kellerman and Marcellus Wiley during a recent visit to The Worldwide Leader’s L.A. Live studio.

TV reporter and resident football expert Tony Maglio got in on the just-for-fun gaming. Below are the 10 prop bets each played and the selections, made on Wednesday, Jan. 29. Odds are courtesy of online sports, betting, casino, poker and horse-racing site Bovada.
