    The Patriots are Favored to Win the Super Bowl but Should They Be?

    The Vegas line opened at -3.5 favoring the Patriots, but the Giants already beat the Patriots this season. Why are they favored? I broke some of it down if you'd like to check it out here:

    Because they are the Patriots. Their value seems to always be inflated because of the Brady factor.

    All I hear from patriots fans are "WE'RE FAVORED BY 3 WE'RE BETTER"

    Yeah, theyre dumb.

    I disagree with the secondary and receiver paragraphs. Both of those are advantage Giants. The QB's are even

    I am fine with the WR paragraph as their TE's make up the difference for our distinct advantage at WR. Our secondary has a clear edge. Throw out the regular season stats which are nonsense at this point. Brady still has the advantage over Eli. Brady versus our defense vs Eli against their defense makes it tighter though.

    I knew Giants fans would give immediate feedback! I do think the Giants have better WRs but obviously you have to include Gronk & Hernandez with the Patriots. I tried to analyze it statistically so there is a method to the madness, even though we all know stats are thrown out the door at kickoff. I think the Giants biggest advantage in the pass rush may be all you need. Sure the Pats didnt have Gronk & Hernandez in 07 but Eli has 4 more years of experience now. Guess its why they play the game lol!

    The Pats are favored to win? Oh hell, we might as well give up now, thats like playing an undefeated team team and expecting to win.
