Jay Kornegay, executive director of the Hilton race and sports book, told AP: "The anticipated large wagers that we expected on the Patriots just never materialized."
Kornegay said the Giants got as much as 60 percent of the bets.
The Giants should not have been 12-point dogs. Anyone who had seen the Patriots' three other Super Bowls and the Week 17 meeting between the teams knew it was going to be close. The Giants were an easy bet to make.
However, those who actually bet them to win on the money line and took in $475 for a $100 bet deserve credit for having that much guts, faith or, insanity—whatever you want to call it.
