In Week 17 of last year’s season, the Patriots beat the Giants 38-35 and became the first team since the revered 1972 Miami Dolphins to go undefeated throughout the regular season. The Giants then squashed the Patriots hope of achieving a truly perfect season five weeks later in Super Bowl XLI when they shocked the Patriots with a 17-14 SU victory.
The Giants fell to the New York Jets by a 10-7 final count last week in a football betting contest where they pushed as three-point underdogs with a game ‘total’ of 38 points. The first score of the game didn’t come until the third quarter, when Mike Nugent kicked a 24 yard field goal to put the Jets ahead by 3 points (3-0).
Football betting fans who picked the total to go under the NFL betting line came away pleased, as the 17 combined points missed the mark by 21 points. The football odds in last week’s NFL Pre-season betting affair against the Philadelphia Eagles found the New England Patriots bet down to one-point home favorites, with the ‘total’ closing at 37.
The catalyst behind the New England loss was the team’s poor play on special teams that surrendered kickoff and punt returns for touchdowns before halftime. Patriots’ second year quarterback, Matt Gutierrez, had a respectable performance completing 14-of-20 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns.
Though in the end, it just wasn’t enough to claim victory. The 27-17 Philadelphia victory went over the predicted NFL betting line by seven-points. The New York Giants currently sit as two-point favorites over the New England Patriots in this NFL Pre-season betting affair; the ‘total’ in this Super Bowl XLI rematch is set at 36.
