Sports books open New England Patriots as slight favorites in 2012 Super Bowl
Jan. 22, 2012
For the fourth time in the last nine years, Las Vegas sports books have posted the New England Patriots as favorites in the Super Bowl. New England opened as a 4-point favorite over the New York Giants at Wynn Las Vegas in Super Bowl XLVI, which takes place Feb. 5 in Indianapolis, after Sunday’s conference championship games. Early money on New York, which came in immediately after it defeated the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 in overtime, dropped the point spread to 3.5 in favor of the Patriots.
