Some bettors are terrified of the parlay, but in a game like the Super Bowl, which features so many proposition bets, grouping plays together can be a nice way to spend a little in order to make a lot. This week I have made known my feelings on the side (New York +3), total (Under 54.5), and a variety of prop bets that I feel could cash for those willing to step outside the box. But if you are hungry for more 2012 Super Bowl action, I have another Giants vs Patriots Prediction or two that might work well in a parlay.
Giants vs Patriots Prediction 2012 Super Bowl: Provided by Bovada.lv
Super Bowl XLVI – Will the opening kickoff result in a touchback:
Odds are that New England will kickoff as it always defers in the event of a coin toss win, which means the Patriots Stephen Gostkowski will, most likely, be the first player to touch the ball in Super Bowl XLVI. Gostkowski has nine touchbacks in the Pats two playoff games (14 kickoffs) and he figures to record another to get things started in Indy.
Super Bowl XLVI – Team to get the first 1st down of the game:
New York Giants (First 1st Down) -200
New England Patriots (First 1st Down) +160
I’ve mentioned New England’s penchant for deferring, a fact that makes this wager far more predictable. Assuming the Giants get the ball first, it seems probable they will pick up at least one first down in their first possession of Super Bowl XLVI. Nothing is certain, but you can call me shocked if the Pats defense produces a three and out to open the game.
Super Bowl XLVI – New England Patriots first TD of the game:
TD Pass (-220)
Any other TD (+180)
Just playing the percentages here…TD Pass. New England threw 39 touchdown passes this season; it only produced 18 rushing touchdowns, two defensive touchdowns, and one special teams touchdown. Seems like a TD pass is the way to go.
