Super Bowl XLVI Pick: Patriots vs. Giants

Posted by in NFL Picks on February 5th, 2012 | Comment »

We have a rematch of Super Bowl XLII where the Giants upset the Patriots as 7-point underdogs. The Giants ended the Patriots dreams of an undefeated season that game. The Giants also defeated the Patriots again this year in week 9. It’s safe to say that the Giants have the Patriots number.

This is a tough game for me to get excited about. It’s going to be a great game, no doubt, but I don’t have a team that I want to see win. As an Eagles fan, I certainly don’t want to see the Giants claim a second Super Bowl victory within the last four years. It’s also equally difficult to want to see the Patriots win even if it’s over a division rival. The Patriots Super Bowl XXIX win over the Eagles has me also hating on the Pats equally.

If I had to list my top five least favorite teams, the Patriots, Giants, Steelers, and Cowboys are all in the top five. I’m not going to go into any analysis here, but just going to throw out a hunch. I like the Giants chances in this one and would pick them if it wasn’t for one key factor. It’s tough to beat the same team twice in the same season and in back-to-back Super Bowl matchups (albeit that it was four years ago). I think you see the Pats top the Giants in a close one. I’m being bias here since I just want the Giants to lose.

Prediction: Patriots 27 – Giants 24

Pick Against the Spread: Patriots -3 (Confidence: 2.5/5)

Thanks to everyone participating in our pick ’em league. This season has come down to the wire. Yours truly ended up in 6th place out of 45 teams. I ended the season with a 132-124 record ATS. The league championship is on the line as My All Star Team and HyeHustle are squaring off with 144-112 records. My All Star Teams has been on a tear in the playoffs going 9-1 in the playoffs. I’ll be excited to see who comes out on top after tonight.
