2012 Super Bowl Odds And Line: Patriots Three Point Favorites Over Giants

The New England Patriots enter Sunday as a three-point favorite over the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. The Patriots opened as three and a half point favorites but has saw the line slide ever so slightly throughout the week. Both teams have identical 9-7-1 marks against the spread this season.

The game offers a rematch from four years ago when the Patriots entered the big game looking to complete a perfect season only to be knocked off by an upstart Giants club. That New York team was similar to this year's version that has claimed road wins over the top two seeds in the NFC. The Patriots bring a 10-game winning streak into Sunday's game.

The over-under currently stands at 55 points for the game. Only six games involving the Giants reached that mark this season while the Patriots have been involved in seven games of over 55 points.
