GL odds any reason in perticular you like the over? seems like most superbowls stay under this #
This is excellent info as here are the Giants scores indoors this year:
10/02/11 @Arizona w31-27 (The Giants put up 360 yards of offense)
11/28/11 @New Orleans L24-49 (The Giants put up 465 yards of offense)
12/11/11 @Dallas w73-34 ( The Giants put up 550 yards of offense)
Those 3 games averaged out to 458ypg compared to their seasonal average of 427ypg. Taking that into consideration with the understanding that the Packers finished up the regular season dead last in defense combined with what the Giants were able to do to them and then realizing that the Pats finished up the season 2nd to last in the regular season in defense and now the Giants get to playing them on turf in the cozy confines of the dome....
I didn't look these numbers up until you asked. But I knew that the numbers would fall in favor of the over with this angle in mind. I think we see a lot of points tonight from both teams with the Giants jumping out in front. I may even venture into a Giants ML 1st half bet. As far as saying Super Bowls tend to stay under the totals. You can make a very strong argument that these 2 teams have lots potential to put up lots of points and put on a great show for the betting public tonight....
