2012 Super Bowl XLVI (46) Prop Bet: The Robert Kraft Sightings

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 ridiculous 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!

In another version of the popular Super Bowl prop bet, how many times will NOTABLE FIGURE be shown/mentioned during the game, we move on to Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

How many times will Robert Kraft be shown on TV during the game?
Over 3 1/2 (-140)
Under 3 1/2 (EVEN)

As with the Peyton Manning prop we discussed earlier, we're straying from our usual lean of under on all of these types of bets. We like Robert Kraft to be shown OVER 3 1/2 times during 2012 Super Bowl XLVI (46).

The death of his wife and subsequent jersey patch will lead to an explanation and shot (or two) of Kraft in his booth at some point during the game, and it's likely that there's also an early shot of both owners sometime in the first quarter.

That puts us at two early Kraft shots, regardless of the game action. Add to that the fact that the Patriots are going to win the Super Bowl (right?), and you'll get at least two more pictures of Kraft, potentially many more if the game is close. Even in defeat, its customary to give the losing owner some camera time, particularly one of the most well known owners in the game.

The cameras love this guy, and we suspect we'll see a lot of Bob Kraft throughout the Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl workweek is almost over, but our work is far from done here at Stock Lemon. Check back for more prop betting prowess this weekend, when we dissect, you know, the actual teams playing in this game, along with our Free NFL Picks on Super Bowl 46.
