Pink's Hot Dogs and Skyline have made a friendly wager on the Super Bowl.

Cincinnati has Skyline Chili and Los Angeles has Pink's Hot Dogs, an iconic roadside Hollywood food stand that's been around since the 1930s.

And when both institutions aren't slinging wieners, they're making bets on Super Bowl winners.

In a friendly transcontinental wager, both Pink's and Skyline have bet that their hometown team will reign supreme when the Cincinnati Bengals take on the L.A. Rams in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, Feb. 13.

The loser will donate $500 to the other city's charity of choice. If When the Bengals win, Pink's will be donating $500 to the Freestore Foodbank. If the Rams win (they won't), Skyline will donate $500 to the Los Angeles Rams Foundation, an outreach program that targets youth. 
Now, $500 is nothing to sneeze at — in fact, each dollar donated to the Freestore Foodbank can help provide three meals — but Pink's hot dogs range in price from $5 to $12 and, according to their own website, they sell around 2,000 a day. Pretty sure both company's could shell out a little more than $500 for a good cause, and a good bet.

Locally, BrewDog in Pendleton is also giving back with a Bengals theme. For each pint of their "Joey Juice" beer sold between now and Sunday, they'll be donating $1 to the Joe Burrow Hunger Relief Fund.

The Bengals will take on the Los Angeles Rams during Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, Feb. 13. The Rams won the Jan. 30 NFC Championship game to advance with the Bengals, who overcame the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime just hours earlier to become the AFC champs.

The Super Bowl will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Rams' home of SoFi Stadium in Inglewood (the Bengals will be acting as the home team, however). NBC will broadcast the game, and fans also can watch on Peacock, Telemundo, NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.

Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige and Eminem will perform during halftime.

NBC's and Peacock's Super Bowl coverage will begin at noon, with the pre-game show launching at 1 p.m.
