Sportsbook.com has removed odds on one of its most popular 2009 Super Bowl betting props.  They had been offering Bruce Springsteen halftime show betting odds but stopped taking wagers on his four song set after "insider information" was revealed.

"We had to close the Springteen half time show (betting) prop as too many people were pounding the favored ‘Any Other' selection'", Sportsbook.com spokesperson, Dave Stanley, revealed to Gambling911.com on Thursday.  "After some investigation we found an article appearing in Rolling Stone that offered some clue as to what songs Springsteen would be performing."

The article, which also references Sportsbook.com's Springsteen odds, explained why so many people had begun betting on "other".

"A lot of gambling sites that were offering Springsteen-related bets have since stopped, probably because Bruce and Co. were in Tampa yesterday and today rehearsing their Super Bowl set - that would make "Playlist H: Any Other Song Combination Not Listed" a popular pick (Hint: Winner!). We're not gonna ruin the Super Bowl surprise for you, but why stop the betting so early? Place your own bets in our comments now!"

Sportsbook.com is offering over 500 2009 Super Bowl props to bet on.
