Bettors hit YouTube and the internet, seeking clues on how long McEntire’s rendition of the national anthem will last.

The Over/Under total is set at 90.5 seconds at FanDuel Sportsbook, after opening at 83.5.

The odds for McEntire’s O/U:

OVER: +102 (bet $10 to win $20.20 total)
UNDER: -128 (bet $10 to win $17.81 total)

The Over has hit nine times and the Under seven times with one push since song times were kept in 2007.

The length of the anthem is one of the signature moments of the Super Bowl broadcast, thanks to the late Whitney Houston.

Houston’s recorded performance (1:56 in length) prior to Super Bowl XXV in 1991 during the Gulf War struck a chord with the country.

Houston’s version hit No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified platinum.

Her first time performing the national anthem before a sporting event is believed to be the 1974 National Finals Rodeo (72 seconds). Her other times at later roderos were 77, 80 and 85 seconds.

She did the anthem in 78 seconds prior to a celebrity softball game in 2017.
