Super Bowl 2012 Odds And Line: New England Patriots Remain Slight Favorite Over New York Giants

Since the Super Bowl XLVI matchup of the New England Patriots (15-3) versus the New York Giants (12-7) was set, there has been very little movement in the odds lines, as New England remains a slight favorite entering Sunday's game.

New England opened as 3.5 point favorites, but the lines have settled between 2.5 and 3 points and remained there for days, according to our friends at OddsShark. The over/under for the game has hovered between 54 and 55 points depending on the odds maker.

As you may recall, these same two teams played an epic, and tight, game in Super Bowl XLII, with the Giants winning 17-14, ruining the Patriots' chance at the first 19-0 season in NFL history.

Super Bowl XLVI will be televised nationally on NBC. The network will also be streaming the game live, for free, at NBCSports.com
