Super Bowl 46 from Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis Indiana goes off Sunday at 6:30PM Eastern Time and bettors will have many prop betting opportunities from this NFL pro football game. We are going to look in depth at and produce New York Giants Super Bowl team prop predictions and provide our analysis for each winning selection. Bet the New York Giants to score first in this game at -125 odds. New England in most games this season in situations where they have won the toss as decided to defer and accept the kickoff to begin the third quarter. This means the Giants will have the first possession in this game and will have the greater opportunity to score first in Super Bowl 46. The prop betting odds is courtesy of Bovada sportsbook.
Since we are going with the New York Giants scoring first in the Super Bowl there are two New York Giants team scoring props we like. The prop odds for the first score in the game to be a Giants field goal is lined +350 odds and a passing touchdown is +275 odds. This New England Patriots defense surrenders 401 yards per game through the air and Eli Manning is connecting very well with receiving weapons in Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and tight end Jake Ballard. We also like the New York Giants scoring in both the first and second quarter at -150 odds. Once again with the likelihood of New York receiving the football on offense to begin the Super Bowl they have a very good shot of scoring in both of the quarters in the first half.
With New England’s style of bend don’t break defense we like the number of first downs by the New York Giants to be greater than 21 ½ at odds of -125. Super Bowl 46 will be played on an extremely fast surface in Indianapolis the home of the Colts. Giants quarterback Eli Manning has passed for 267 yards or greater over his past four games all against quality opponents. If you can throw for big yardage against San Francisco in the mud then you have to believe Manning will move this Giants team offensively on a much more offensively friendly playing surface. When you look at Eli’s performances inside domes on fast tracks you find he threw for 306 yards at Arizona, 392 yards at New Orleans and 400 yards at Dallas. Note Manning had to battle the crowd noise in those stadiums which he won’t find on a neutral field in the Super Bowl. I also expect the Giants offense to have more possessions in this game because I expect the Patriots to go at New York with a no huddle approach on offense to neutralize their pass rush and avoid substitutions by the Giants on defense. What in turn this does is creates more passing and quicker plays from scrimmage resulting in higher volume of plays from scrimmage thus aiding our cause for greater than 21 ½ first downs by the New York Giants.
