2012 SuperBowl Gambling Odds Say Patriots, But Giants Hold Momentum
The New England Patriots hold the slight advantage over the New York Giants when it comes to the Super Bowl betting line, but it’s just as important to consider how NFL oddsmakers initially settled on the -3 spread.
Though the Pats have been dominant for much of 2011-12, New York won clout with their victory over the Green Bay Packers.
The truth is, although the Patriots have the power of Tom Brady and three Super Bowl victories under their belts already, the Giants have emerged as a force of note in the NFC. For Eli Manning and company the fruitful postseason started with a trouncing of the Atlanta Falcons on Wild Card Weekend, the momentum of which may or may not have been a deciding factor in their performance the next time out.
Regardless of New York’s win over Atlanta, however, what they’ve been most prized for this winter is their dismissing of Aaron Rodgers and reigning champion Green Bay. Can Manning throw another impressive game under the Super Bowl spotlight?
On the other side of the ball the Patriots will kick-off against the Giants with a slightly less impressive, though through no fault of their own. After sitting out of the first game of the postseason with a bye the Pats got to work disposing of Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos.
Will New England have gleaned more from their recent victory over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship than the Giants did from the San Francisco 49ers?
