There's nothing quite like a friendly wager or two, right? Daniel Radcliffe and Ellen DeGeneres put their money where their mouths are when they got into a heated bet about the New York Giants and the New England Patriots.

 The stars actually made a wager of $5,000 on Sunday's game! During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Daniel admitted that he is a Giants fan, while Ellen roots for the Patriots. Actually, after appearing on Broadway in Equus and then How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, the British actor admitted he became a Giants fan as he became a temporary New Yorker on the Great White Way. OK! NEWS: DANIEL RADCLIFFE ONLY MANSCAPES A LITTLE BIT "FOR COURTESY" Sounds like the bet is friendly indeed because regardless of the outcome, the $5,000 winning purse will be donated to the Trevor Project, a national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention to LGBTQ youth. Money aside, there's bragging rights at stake based on the friendly wager made between Mayor Mike Bloomberg of NYC and Mayor Thomas Menino of Boston! OK! NEWS: GUEST HOST DANIEL RADCLIFFE STANDS BY LANA DEL REY'S SNL PERFORMANCE As per The New York Post, if the Giants win, a New York family will win a tour of Boston including a two-night stay at the Ritz Carlton, four box seats at a Celtics game, a duck tour ride, among other gifts. On the other hand, if the Patriots win, one Boston family will win a tour of NYC including a two-night stay at the Grand Hyatt, dinner for four at the Russian Tea Room, four tickets to the Phantom of the Opera, and other prizes. Now that the bets have been made, what are you most excited about for Super Bowl Sunday? The Giants, Patriots, Madonna or the hyped commercials? Voice your thoughts in the comments!
