Leading up to the 2012 Super Bowl XLVI (46) between the New York Giants and New England Patriots, we'll be taking a look at Super Bowl proposition betting, or more specifically, the fun or hilarious Super Bowl 46 (XLVI) prop bets that you hear so much about. That includes props on the Super Bowl coin toss, Super Bowl halftime show (Madonna), the Super Bowl National Anthem (Kelly Clarkson), the Super Bowl Gatorade Shower dump and much more. Follow along on the Super Bowl sidebar to the right and follow us on twitter @stocklemonblog!
With apologies to grandma Madonna, we were hoping to sexy up our Super Bowl Prop Betting Analysis in some way shape or form (you know, for pageviews). Enter Gisele Bundchen, the very attractive wife of one Tom Brady.
How many times will Gisele Bundchen be shown on TV during the game?
Over 1/2 -150
Under 1/2 -110
We are usually pretty adamant about these props going under, as we might have tipped off to you with our post on Jim Irsay yesterday. But in this case, we like the over on Gisele.
Why? Because look at her, for crying out loud. She's eye candy! It's not uncommon for families to be shown during the game, especially really, really hot families. This is, after all, the wife of the star quarterback in the Super Bowl (sorry Eli, you can still be called elite, but where's your supermodel wife?).
When these teams met in Super Bowl XLII (42), Gisele was shown during the game, and she was only the girlfriend of Tom Brady, rather than wife. We expect to see her multiple times.
The fact that one showing of Gisele earns you a win (most of these are set so that one mention/view equals a push) is all we need to pound Gisele in this prop. And yes, we know how that sounded.
If we can't bed Giselle, we'll at least bet Giselle.
Check back tomorrow to see if we've stopped daydreaming about Gisele and are moving on to actual Super Bowl prop bet analysis. There's a good chance we'll still be doing both.
