Sunday is, of course, the Super Bowl, as well as the final rounds of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Some of the big sports books have created prop bets, where you can wager on golf and the gridiron at the same time. 
 
Among those offering the hybrid bets, as Will Gray over at the Golf Channel noted, is the WestGate Las Vegas SportsBook. which bills itself as the world's largest race and sports book.
 
Just to whet your appetite, here's a foursome of their cross-sports wagers for your consideration. To place your bets, of course, you have to go to Vegas:
 
--Jordan Spieth's final-round score in Phoenix (-32.5) vs. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson's rushing yards
 
--Rickie Fowler's final-round score in Phoenix (-19.5) vs. New England receiver Brandon LaFell's receiving yards
 
 
--Rory McIlroy's final-round score in Dubai (-14.5) vs. Seattle receiver Doug Baldwin's total receiving yards
 
--Rory McIlroy's number of final-round birdies (Pick 'Em) vs. New England tight end Rob Gronkowski's total number of receptions
 
The numbers in parentheses indicate that these are spread bets. So, for example, Spieth's final-round score would have to be 33 or more strokes lower than Wilson's rushing total for your bet on Spieth to pay off – or 32 strokes or less for your bet on Wilson to pay off.
 
And just for the record, the betting lines shown here might have changed since they were issued, and we bring them to your attention for entertainment purposes only.
