Odds of a Giants rematch not likely

Looking for a rematch of Super Bowl XLII? Don’t bet on it.

Citing odds from Bovada.lv, the New York Daily News points out that it is an 18-1 shot to see the Patriots take on the Giants in Indianapolis in a few weeks. The Giants, of course, halted the Patriots’ perfect 2007 season four years ago in Arizona. 

Eighteen-to-one, huh? Maybe Vegas is getting a little cute there.

The Patriots are, however, favored to take on a former Super Bowl opponent, as a New England-Green Bay Super Bowl carries an 11-4 shot, most likely among any opponents.

A Giants-Bengals Super Bowl, by the way, is a 200-1 shot.

According to the Las Vegas Hilton’s Race and Sports Book, the Patriots carry 7-2 odds of winning their fourth Super Bowl title. The Packers are at 8-5.

Which all means the Ravens probably win the thing.
