It's time to place your bets.

There's a big reason why the Super Bowl is almost always the most watched program on television. Last year's epic clash between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots drew in a total audience of roughly 172 million viewers.

This coming Sunday in the 2018 Super Bowl, the Philadelphia Eagles will take on the New England Patriots at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. And once again, thousands -- if not millions -- of people across the country will be making wagers on a wide variety of topics.

Whether you've created your own bets, or are relying on the oddsmakers out in Las Vegas, the Super Bowl has more betting interest, options and odds than any other sporting event on the calendar.

Using a number of different betting outlets and sites across the internet, here are 10 of the most interesting bets Vegas has on the board for this year's game, in no particular order.

1. The game's actual point spread: Philadelphia Eagles vs. New England Patriots (-4.5).

It's probably the most common bet out there. New England was a -6.5 favorite last week, but that number has since fallen thanks to a high volume of action on Philadelphia over the course of the last two weeks.

2. Which owner will be shown first?

Patriots owner Robert Kraft is listed at -130, while Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie is listed at -110. The Patriots have played so many games in primetime this century, including seven Super Bowls. The team's success coupled with Kraft's standing in the ownership hierarchy makes him the favorite in this one.

3. Will players kneel for the national anthem?
