The New York Giants proclaimed victory and were crowned champions of the National Football League last night with a 21-17 win over the New England Patriots to win the team's fourth championship in franchise history. Reports out of Vegas are claiming that nearly $10-billion dollars was wagered world wide on the game that favored the Patriots -3. Gamblers that took the Giants won on the point spread of +3 and on the moneyline which would have paid out $115 for every $100 wagered while the betting total stay UNDER the listed 54. After such a thrilling title game that saw New York deservedly win the championship, many NFL betting handicappers and gamblers alike woke up a bit perplexed when Vegas bookmakers released odds to win the 2013 Super Bowl XLVII on Monday morning as the Giants were not listed at the top of the list.
The Green Bay Packers are number one in predictions to win the big game next year at a price of 6/1 and are followed by the New England Patriots at 7/1 with the New Orleans Saints rounding out the top three choices at 8/1. The Houston Texans fell short in the divisional round against the Baltimore Ravens but are still listed as the fourth choice in odds to win Super Bowl XLVII at 12/1 along with the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. The reigning Super Bowl champion Giants are next at15/1, followed by the NY Jets and San Diego Chargers at 16/1 rounding out the top ten teams. The three largest longshots in odds to win the 2013 Super Bowl are the Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks at 60/1 followed by the Washington Redskins at 65/1.
