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.

Indiana legislators are wondering what they can do to help the state’s 13 casinos compete against those in other states, but there is so far nothing that looks like a consensus.
Will Atlantic City’s Revel become an East Coast version of Las Vegas’ Fontainebleau – a problem in search of an answer? Both are closed, have been for months, they are lingering reminders of recessionary pressures.
Macau casinos are in the midst of an identity crisis as they strain to project the message that they are indeed world class centers of tourism and leisure and not merely places to gamble.
