2012 Vegas Super Bowl XLVI Betting Odds: After their win over the San Francisco 49ers as the underdog, the New York Giants clinched the NFC title and will head to Indianapolis to face the New England Patriots in the 2012 Vegas Super Bowl odds contest scheduled for February 5th. Once again, the New York Giants will be the underdog as the current 2012 Vegas Super Bowl odds list them with a +3-110 point spread.
Is being the underdog a good thing for the Giants? A good question, since the Giants seem to step-up and perform well when they are listed as the dog in a NFL picks contest. The Giants head into the 2012 Super Bowl 2-0 against the spread when listed as the underdog and 2-0 as the underdog when on the road. In a head to head matchup against the New England Patriots since 2001, the Giants are 2-2, with one loss in 2007 by 3 points and the other way back in 2003 by 11 points. In the Giants last ten NFL picks contests they've been listed as an underdog six times and have beat the Vegas point spreads on four occasions, which shows they have a statistical shot at earing the Super Bowl win in Indy this year.
It could be tough though if you look at the scoring averages for both the Patriots and Giants. The New York Giants average score heading into the 2012 Vegas Super Bowl odds contest is just 27.4 point per game, while the Patriots average shows they should easily cover the NFL spreads with an average 31.6 points per game.
In my opinion, this time around it will be the Patriots who come out on top. After the 2008 meeting between these two teams, the Patriots lost falling just short of the perfect season and Tom Brady's poor performance against the Baltimore Ravens last week, the Patriots will be looking for redemption and Tom Brady is too pissed to have another poor performance.
