Super Bowl XLVI

PATRIOTS (-3) vs Giants
Figgs:
Joe: Giants; I have been going back and forth on this for a week and a half so I decided to just make a damn pick. I don't like the fact that everyone seems to like the Giants, because we've seen how good Brady is when he is extra movivated (see Brady vs. Tebow in the division round). However, I just think the Giants have the better team. I thought that when they beat New England during the regular season, and I still do. They have the pass rush to be able to frustrate Brady. Eli, on the other hand, will not face nearly the type of pressure that San Fran was able to put on him and I don't see the likes of Julian Edleman being able to cover Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. So, I like the Giants to beat New England in the Big Game for the second time in the last 5 years.
Nick: Giants. This should be a competitive game, but the Giants seem like they should be the slight favorite. I just think the Giants have the better team, and probably win this game 55-60% of the time. That makes them a decent bet at +120. Both teams have serious issues in the secondary, but the Gronkowski injury is what really pushed me onto the Giants' side. Nobody knows how devastating high ankle sparains can be more than a Browns fan, and it's simply not a two-week injury. Ultimately I think the Giants squeak this one out unless there are a few goofy bounces or Eli has a total meltdown. ($)
