The New England Patriots versus New York Giants Las Vegas betting odds still favor the Patriots by three points, but after rolling his ankle in the Patriots win against Baltimore, will Rob Gronkowski be able to perform at 100 percent in today's Super Bowl 46 picks contest? The receiving duo of Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez is a formidable opponent for any defense and the Giants will need to focus much of their effort at stopping the pair of New England tight-ends. That factor could open other opportunities for the Patriots receiving ranks or even the ground game for New England. But will the effect of Gronkowski's ankle injury allow the Giants to focus more of their efforts on another New England threat?
According to reports Rob Gronkowski may need surgery after sustaining that ugly ankle roll against Baltimore, the injury looked like it should have taken Gronkowski out of the game when it happened, but to the surprise of many he returned to the lineup to help the Patriots in their fourth quarter touchdown drive that positioned them for Super Bowl 46. Let's face it, this guy is as tough as they come and stopping the big guy is almost impossible if he is 100%. The big question and short answer is he definitely not 100%, but will Gronkowski play in Super Bowl 46?
It's been a rough week and head coach Bill Belichick has not helped us at all, how can we expect a coach that has had is starting QB on the Patriots injury report for most of his career to help us out and tell us whether Gronkowski will play or not. The biggest tell for sports bettors to determine whether Gronkowski will play in Super Bowl 46 is whether he practices and other than his limited practice on Thursday it appears the question still remains questionable.
With my Super Bowl picks going down on the Patriots, I have to admit I am nervous.
Do you think Rob Gronkowski will play in Super Bowl 46? Can the Patriots win Super Bowl 46 without him?
