Jay Rood, MGM Resorts – Patriots 24-23: I see a low scoring game with Brady executing a last minute drive to seal the game and his hall of fame credentials.

Mike Colbert, Cantor Gaming – Patriots 27-20: Brady and Belichick will be too much for the Giants in a double-revenge game.

Jay Kornegay, LVH Super Book – Giants 27-24: I think the Giants defensive momentum carries over into this game and frustrates Brady.

Bert Osborne, South Point – Patriots 31-20: I’ve seen the Giants look bad a lot more times this season than I have with the Patriots.

Bob Scucci, Coast Resorts – Patriots 27-24: I think this will be a closely fought game with no team getting too far ahead, just like their last Super Bowl and week 9 this year.

Vinny Magliulo, The Linemakers – Giants 27-23: G-Men are playing the most complete football on both sides of the line. They can put pressure on Brady and score with the Patriots.

Kitt Langvad, Arizona Charlies West – Patriots 31-24: I think the Pats have the better coach and even with a mediocre defense, they will score enough to win.

Jason McCormick, Station Casinos – Patriots 41-38: This has been the year of the quarterback and I expect it to continue here in a track meet.

Zack Goldberg, Wildfire – Patriots 27-16: Pats are extremely undervalued for a team that has won two in row. I have a hard time believing Eli can beat Brady in two Super Bowls.

Brian Blessing, Sports Book Radio – Patriots 31-27: It’s not very often we get the Patriots in a revenge game and they’re being severely underestimated for this one.

Jorge Gonzalez, Fox Sports Radio – Patriots 31-27: I can’t see Tom Brady have poor games back-to-back, also giving the coaching edge to Belichick.

Gaming revenue in Macau casinos fell 34.5 percent during July, compared to the same month a year ago. The total for the month was $2.3 million. It was the 14th consecutive month of year-to-year declines.

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City’s revenue in its first 11 months has fallen short of projections, but still outpaced its predecessor. The Hard Rock took in $70 million in gambling revenue in its first 11 months through June 30.

The total number of Macau gaming and junket jobs shrank by about 800 during the second quarter of 2015. It’s another example of the impact resulting from the absence of high rolling gamblers who have been avoiding the Macau casinos.

The Arizona Department of Gaming says contributions to the state from tribal gambling revenue will be about $25.8 million for the quarter that ended on June 30. That’s about 4.5 percent more than the same quarter in 2014.

The Houston Astros look to continue their strong second-half surge when they visit in-state rival Texas. The Astros and Lance McCullers (-129) are favored over Colby Lewis and the Rangers. The total is 9.
