I've been looking through the seemingly endless amount of prop bets for this game, trying to look for some good ones, and this is what I have come up with so far in terms of prop bets that I think prospective bettors should examine more closely.
Take OVER 49.5 Yards for Longest Touchdown Scored (Either Team)
I like this pick because both teams have consistently scored on big plays all year. Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks are always threats to score from way out, and Eli will certainly take his chances at least four or five times on a deep play.
On the Patriots' side, Brady and the gang have scored on a lot of deep plays throughout the year, and with the Giants figuring to bring a heavy pass rush, I wouldn't be surprised to see a lapse in their coverage that Brady could exploit for the big score.
Take OVER 4.5 Sacks in the Game (Both Teams Combined)
The Patriots are going to have to deal with a pass rush from the Giants that is playing as well as any team has all year. They're going to be relentless, especially on third down, and I fully expect them to have at the very minimum three quarterback sacks. Any less than that would really surprise me.
Throw in a couple of good defensive stunts and schemes by Belichick, and you'll get a couple of sacks from the Patriots. I think this is an interesting bet, and I would definitely go for the over.
