Super Bowl odds and trends will be important to consider for Super Bowl XLII between the New England Patriots and New York Giants
Trends can be useful when looking at Super Bowl odds, especially if the teams have already played during the season. Let’s consider some trends that could be helpful in Super Bowl betting this year.
Super Bowl odds started with New England as a 13.5 point favorite but those Super Bowl odds have dropped to -12. One reason may be that New England has struggled against the spread recently. The Patriots have lost their last five games against the number and seven of their last eight. The Giants on the other hand of the Super Bowl odds equation have covered their last five games against the spread. They are also 3-1 against the spread in their last four games against the Patriots including a cover in their 38-35 loss in Week #17.
Super Bowl odds show that this year’s game will be played at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Super Bowl odds and trends show that the Giants are 6-12 ATS in their last 18 games played after 2 or more weeks of rest. The Patriots are only 9-13 ATS in their last 22 games played after 2 or more weeks of rest so that is something to remember in Super Bowl betting. The Giants in Super Bowl odds and trends do well against the AFC East going 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games.
As you consider Super Bowl odds remember that the Patriots are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games when the total is 49 or higher. The Patriots have the highest scoring offense in NFL history and when points are expected the Patriots usually cover the number and that may be the case in Super Bowl betting as well. The Patriots are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games vs. a team with a winning record. The Patriots are 40-19-3 ATS in their last 62 games on grass and that may be important in Super Bowl odds.
These are just a few of the Super Bowl betting trends to consider as you get ready to bet the big game and look at Super Bowl odds.
