Novelty bettors love the Super Bowl, with some of the more famous wagers placed on things like the coin toss.

But this year’s Super Bowl — featuring the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos — has an even more awesome list of things you can bet that are ancillary to the game itself.

Unsurprisingly, a few of the bets involve Richard Sherman, who started a media frenzy with a wild post-game interview in the NFC championship.
