Like many fans that make bets on who will win the Super Bowl, so is Daniel Radcliffe and Ellen DeGeneres, but there’s more than meets the eye.

Thursday, Radcliffe made an appearance on “Ellen” to promote his new film “The Woman in Black.” The conversation led to whether the New York Giants or the New England Patriots would win on Sunday.

He made a proposition with DeGeneres, “I was wondering if you would like to place a bet on behalf of the Trevor Project. You can name the sum, I don’t mind. I’m obviously…I’m backing the Giants.”

As a “christened” football fan, the “Harry Potter” actor became a supporter of the Giants while starring in the play “Equus,” while in New York. So, if Patriots win, Radcliffe will donate $5,000. If Giants win, DeGeneres will give $5,000. Either way the Trevor Project benefits.

Like DeGeneres, the 22-year-old actor is a huge supporter for the crisis intervention organization that focuses on suicide prevention for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.

Now this is how betting should work!
