2012 Super Bowl Odds, Lines and Prop Bets

Sometimes to add a little spice to your Super Bowl watching experience, placing a bet (or five) on the big game can help. The New England Patriots enter Sunday as a three-point favorite over the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. Iniitally, the Patriots opened as three and a half point favorites but the line has shifted down throughout the week.

The oddsmakers have set the over/under for Giants versus Patriots sits at 54 which should give fans optimism for a high-scoring contest, although in Super Bowl XLII these two teams were only able to muster up 31 points in a Giants victory.

Here are a couple of additional prop bets, courtesy of Bovada, to have fun with. Including:

Odds on who will win the Super Bowl MVP

Tom Brady - 7/5
Eli Manning - 9/4
Victor Cruz - 8/1
Hakeem Nicks - 12/1
Wes Welker - 12/1

Odds on who will score first in the Super Bowl

Rob Gronkowski - 13/2
Aaron Hernandez - 7/1
BenJarvus Green-Ellis - 15/2
Victor Cruz - 15/2
Ahmad Bradshaw - 8/1

Who will the Super Bowl MVP of the Game thank first?

Teammates - 1/1
Coach - 12/1
Family - 8/1
God - 4/1
Owner - 6/1
Does Not Thank Anyone - 5/2
