Personally, I was having a tough time with this one. At this point, these teams look fairly evenly matched even though the Pats are three points favorites. So I figured that maybe I'd let the Accuscore simulator help in my prediction. It's projected scores?
Patriots 21.7, Giants 21.3
So yeah, no help from Accuscore. So I checked out the historical against the spread trends. They all favor the Giants to cover. So Giants right? Not so fast... I also checked out ESPN "win odds predictions" that uses three different mathematical models to predict winners. All three predict a Pats win.
So the "objective" predictors are basically split, which means this really is a gut pick. So vote in the poll, but give us your reasoning in the comments.
