2008 Super Bowl Betting Odds: Giants vs. Patriots Odds
If had placed money on the New York Giants through your BetUS account to win every single game this year against the spread, including playoffs, you would have won 13 out of 6 games. That would have netted you a nice BetUS profit for the year, right? Unless, of course, you change the number of units you wager on each game.
Well, what about the New England Patriots? That’s where it gets tricky. If you had wagered the same unit on every single Patriot game from the beginning of the regular through the playoff, and all the way up to the Super Bowl against the spread then you would be sitting on a 9 and 7 record. Again, a nice profit margin for the year, right?
Ah! But this is where it gets tough for us BetUS bettors! Why? Because the New England Patriots have not covered in their last five games. That includes spread of – 20.5 versus the New York Jets, – 22 versus the Miami Dolphins, – 13 versus the New York Giants, – 13.5 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, and – 14 versus the San Diego Chargers.
The BetUS line in the Superbowl is Patriots – 11.5 at this time. What complicates matters further is the fact that the Patriots are receiving two weeks two prepare for this game. Two weeks is an awfully long time for Bill Belichick to create those fantastic defensive schemes. Too long, I think, but will it be long enough to stop the red-ho Eli Manning and the New York Giants offense?
First, this is going to be a fantastic Super Bowl in terms of drama! Eli, Peyton’s little bro, gets to test his mettle versus the one and only New England Patriots. The Patriots are playing in their fourth Super Bowl XLII in seven years and folks thought that dynasties were dead in the NFL! Are you kidding me, Becky? We couldn’t ask for a better game then the one that pairs the strategist king, Bill Belichick, against the man who, up until getting his team into the playoffs, was on every NFL watcher’s hot list, Tom Coughlin.
Manning vs. Brady. Tedy Bruschi, coming back from stroke two years ago, versus that spectacular Giants’ running game. Coughlin versus Belichick.
Hype, hype, hype, baby! And for once it’s worth it!
Second, you can’t lose by wagering on this game. Why? Because I believe that BetUS is offering so many opportunities to make money, in just their against the spread wagers, that it would be impossible to lose money! Of course, you may have to put up more money then you like, but that’s okay! Pick the best against the point spread wager that BetUS offers and go for it!
I’m going to analyze each only because I’m hard up on this Super Bowl. Who knows? Maybe, I’ll put some money on all of them:
Patriots – 11.5 (- 110) vs. Giants + 11.5 (- 110) = This is the classic wager. It’s also been going down since the line was first established soon after the Giants beat the Packers. That means that everybody is wagering on the Giants. What to do with this one? Well, if you think that the BetUS line is going the right way, against the Patriots, then the Giants are an excellent wager. It’s still above ten points after all.
Patriots + 3.5 (- 800) vs. Giants – 3.5 (+ 600) = I sort of see this as a pretty good BetUS saver bet, if you really, really love the Patriots, or a great money making bet if you really, really love the Giants. Giants fans who talk a lot of trash could do worse then getting + 600 on the fact that the G-Men will “beat the hell out of those Patriots!”
Patriots – 3.5 (- 300) vs. Giants + 3.5 (+ 250) = Okay, now the BetUS wagers against the line are starting to get very interesting! Are you will to take the Giants at + 3.5 instead of + 11.5 to get + 250 versus – 110? How much do you really like the Giants? This is a great wager for those who truly believe that the Giants have a shot at winning this thing outright. If you like the Patriots but feel that giving up 11.5 is too much, then take them at – 3.5 and – 300. That’s a good deal depending on how you think either team will fare in this super competitive Super Bowl.
Patrtiots – 7.5 (- 165) vs. Giants + 7.5 (+ 145) = How about getting the all important half of a point in a BetUS against the line wager in the Super Bowl 42? A touchdown and a half a point either way and you’ve made a smart wager with this one. You shave for points off of the classic BetUS wager on the Patriots by giving up less than 2 to 1. That’s pretty good!
Patriots – 17.5 (+ 180) vs. Giants + 17.5 (- 220) = If you like the Patriots big, then BetUS is offering some great against the line spreads for you! I mean, you will be making extra money if you’re willing to give up 17.5 points! For those Patriot watchers who believe that Belichick and two weeks spells disaster for the Giants, this is a dream wager!

I’ve included these three wagers together because my feelings regarding all three are the same:
Patriots – 21.5 (+ 320) vs. Giants + 21.5 (- 400)
Patriots – 24.5 (+ 450) vs. Giants + 24.5 (- 600)
Patriots – 28.5 (+ 600) vs. Giants + 28.5 ( – 800)
My feelings is that if you truly believe that the Patriots are one of the greatest teams that has ever played in the NFL, then you should wager on ALL THREE of these BetUS Lines. Why? Because if the Patriots pull a 1986 Chicago Bears type of win of something like 46 to 10 then you stand to make a lot of money on all three of these wagers! Look at the money you’d be receiving – - + 320, + 450, and + 600! What are you waiting for, Becky?
Patriots – 6.5 ( – 220) vs. Giants + 6.5 (+ 180) = A great BetUS wager for Giants’ fans. If you take only 6.5 points, you still make money above the juice. Nice!
Patriots – 4.5 (- 250) vs. Giants + 4.5 (+ 210) = You make over 2 to 1 in this BetUS wager but you still get a point over 3.5 if you like the Giants. This is a fantastic wager for those who think that the Super Bowl will be a closer game – - maybe a field goal or less.
As I said to Becky right now, turn on your computer and get to NFL betting! You can’t possibly lose by getting on one or more of these BetUS wagers right now!
