Looks to me like the over/under line.

57 points is the line for total points scored by both teams in the game.

Yeah, it's a bet where u wager if u think total combined points will be over 57, or under 57 (in this case)..

Sports book wagering can get real macro too.. betting on points per quarter. Who will score first, etc.

Boise State 44

Vegas isn't in it to lose money.

As for betting on anything.. The Super Bowl is generally king of prop bets.. They have bets on how long the anthem will take.. The coin toss, whether or not there'll be a safety in the game.. Which team scores first.. Which team scores last..

Here's a list from the last Super Bowl

Super Bowl Props & Bets

My favorite there is "What color will the liquid poured on the winning coach be?"
