There are plenty of questions surrounding this year's matchup. Will Eli Manning and the Giants be able to continue their amazing second-half and postseason streak? Will Bill Belicheck and the Patriots be out for blood and revenge in this rematch of the 2008 Super Bowl? Will Rob Gronkowski be reduced to a non-factor due to the ankle injury he sustained in the AFC Championship Game?
Whatever the answers, the oddsmakers still believe that one week out, the Patriots are still the slight favorites in this one. They are currently favored at between 2.5 and 3 points according to our friends over at OddsShark, although that is down from their opening line of winning by 3.5 points. The over/under for the game remains set at 55.
