Las Vegas bookies super bowl predictionsJanuary 31, 2012 3:01 AM by Micah Roberts
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.
Nevada’s unemployment rate dropped even further in December to reach a level unseen since June 2008, and the state ended the year with nearly 100,000 jobs more than it had at the depths of the recession.
When is it wise to blindly take the visiting team regardless of who’s playing? It’s when the home team is coming off a road game the day before and facing a team that’s had one to three days rest.
Two New Jersey congressmen are renewing their efforts to allow sports betting in the state. Democrat Frank Pallone Jr. and Republican Frank LoBiondo introduced bills last week taking two different approaches toward the same goal.
