How long was the Super Bowl national anthem in 2023? Chris Stapleton hits betting under

Bettors anxiously await the answer to an important pregame question before they get on with their Super Bowl 57 fun. Did Anthem Singer Chris Stapleton Over or Under Expected Time to Perform?

Seven of the last eight performances of the national anthems at the Super Bowl have come to an end, so many expected Stapleton to do the same.

However, sportsbooks have taken this into account and therefore the over is higher than usual.

That left Wetter torn as to which side to take. Many who knew Stapleton’s slower style took the helm, but others wondered if it was safe to bet on an anthem longer than two minutes and seven seconds. It seemed like a real 50-50 offer.

Sporting News followed the outcome of Stapleton’s performance. Below is a breakdown of Stapleton’s anthem performance and how it compared to other performances in Super Bowl history.

How long was the Super Bowl national anthem in 2023?

The 2023 Super Bowl national anthem unofficially stopped two minutes and one second, from the beginning of the song with the first word to the end of the last held note. That lasted well under the two-minute, seven-second rate as the official over/under bet for most sportsbooks.

Chris Stapleton was this year’s performer of the anthem. The 44-year-old is a prolific songwriter, credited with writing over 170 songs, including six chart-topping country singles. Best known for his interpretation of “Tennessee Whiskey,” the country music star has won eight Grammy Awards throughout his career.

What was the Super Bowl national anthem about?

  • Over 126.5 seconds: -130
  • Under 126.5 seconds: -110

During the 2022 Super Bowl, Mickey Guyton’s anthem was not expected to last long at all, having been known for performing it briefly. Sportsbooks put the over/under at 95 seconds and go burned as it ran 111 seconds.

This year they’re going the opposite way, which is reasonable. Stapleton is known for long, drawn out performances and for finding ways to slow things down to suit his raspy, melodic voice. Therefore, this anthem could drag on.

However, in this case the anthem would have to last 2:07 for the over to strike. That’s certainly a possibility, but it’s worth noting that anthem performances have only exceeded that length five times in the past 15 Super Bowls. It’s one of the reasons our very own Sloan Piva favors the under on this bet.

Still, it’s worth noting that the over/under number has increased by about seven seconds since the betting began. This means there are bettors who are very confident that Stapleton’s anthem will be long.
