- The poet and activist will be getting time on the biggest stage in the world to read a new poem honoring three special Americans and the role they played in the Coronavirus Pandemic.
- Pre-game Super Bowl coverage begins at 11:30 a.m. EST for seven hours where Gorman is set to appear during this time.
TAMPA, Fla. – Amanda Gorman and her poetry have made headlines since her reading at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration and the activist will now be reading her work at Super Bowl 55 where prop bets have been posted for the occasion.
Gorman is the first person in history to be given the title of National Youth Poet Laureate and the youngest poet to read at a Presidential Inauguration. She is a Harvard graduate, receiving her degree in 2020 in sociology.
Her poetry helps to shed light on the current African American community and other areas of civil rights as she strives to make changes through her written word.
Super Bowl Bets On Gorman’s Poem
Amanda Gorman read “The Hill We Climb” for the Presidential celebration in January but will be reading a different poem for Super Bowl 55.
Her stage time will be during the pre-Super Bowl show on Sunday, February 7 where she will be reading about three different Americans; Trimaine Davis, Suzie Dorner, and James Martin who all worked tirelessly in their efforts to help combat the Coronavirus Pandemic.
It is expected that Gorman will reach new heights of fame after the Super Bowl because many more viewers are projected to watch all of the game day events more so than those who tuned in for the swearing in of the new Presidential office.
There are four betting lines posted on mobile sportsbooks like BetOnline about Amanda Gorman’s Super Bowl 55 poetry reading.
Length of Amanda Gorman Poem Recitation
- Over 284.5 Seconds (-120)
- Under 284.5 Seconds (-120)
Gorman spent over 300 seconds at the podium for “The Hill We Climb” making these betting odds even because she could be short and sweet or go in-depth like she did for the Inauguration. Given the amount of viewership she is expected to receive from this event, going on the Over
would make more sense for Gorman to receive more time in the spotlight and get her point across while the stage is hers.
Which Will be Said First During Amanda Gorman Poem?
- Chiefs (-125)
- Bucs/Buccaneers (-105)
The Kansas City Chiefs are favored for this wager because they are the reigning Champions trying to defend their title. However, they barely edge out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who will be the home team, making this bet anyone’s guess. There is also the chance that she won’t mention either team in her poem so this might be a prop that bettors want to fade.
Who Will Amanda Gorman Mention First During Poem
- James Martin (+110)
- Suzie Dorner (+130)
- Trimaine Davis (+150)
James Martin is a veteran Marine, with the best odds for this bet set by sportsbooks. However, Suzie Dorner is a nurse who may very well receive the first mention due to her career in healthcare. Trimaine Davis who has the longest odds, is an educator.
First Word Said First During Amanda Gorman Poem
- Hero (-110)
- Pandemic (+110)
- Super (+225)
Given that this poem will be to honor the heroes who have helped with the Coronavirus Pandemic, the word “hero” being said first is the most favored. This is very likely to be the first word mentioned but “pandemic” could pay out nicely for those gambling on it depending on how Gorman decides to arrange the wording of her poem where “pandemic” could get the first mention.
