The New England Patriots have opened up as 3-point favorites to defeat the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, according to online gambling site Bovada. That’s a pretty tight line. Apparently, Vegas is loving this Super Bowl matchup.
“We could not have asked for a better Super Bowl matchup from a betting and a fans perspective,” according to Kevin Bradley, Bovada’s Sportsbook Manager. “Considering this is the rematch from the great upset of 2008 I would expect this to be the highest bet Super Bowl this century and well surpassing what was already a heavily bet 2008 Super Bowl which was a disaster for bookmakers, losing 7 figures easily. It is no secret that we are not in the best position on futures with the Giants being our biggest loss and the Patriots being the biggest winner, but with the line only set at New England -3 I am very curious to see if the public will finally back off the Giants considering they have been killing us every week for the last 2 months.”
