I am of the rare opinion that the Patriots should be heavily favored.  Everybody seems to be forgetting that the Giants went 9-7.  That they barely made the playoffs (by winning a bad division that Dallas choked away losing 4 of 5 down the stretch).  That they lost to Seattle, Philadelphia, and Washington (twice).  The general media consensus seems to be that A: in the NFL lately it doesn’t really matter what you did all season in, just they way you are playing at the moment; and B: that the Giants are so hot right now (like Hansel hot?).

Ok, well if that’s the case, what does it mean that the Patriots have won 10 games in a row?  In fact, their last loss was to the Giants twelve weeks ago.  I think that’s a good thing for New England.  Not only does it increase the revenge factor from Superbowl XLII (and seriously can they stop with the stupid Roman numerals already?  Honestly how many people actually know what they are?), I also feel like beating the same good team twice in a row is just a very difficult thing to do.

However, if I was going to bet money, I would definitely take the Giants.  Not because of the 2.5 or 3 point spread, and not because I think they will win, but because this game PERFECTLY fits the profile for my guaranteed way to win at sports gambling.

If you’d like to vote in my poll as to what you think the results of the game will be, go to lucidsportsfan.blogspot.com.
