Will Super Bowl History Repeat Itself?

We’re all looking forward to Super Bowl XLVI this weekend, when the New York Giants take on the New England Patriots at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. Game time is Sunday, 6:30 p.m. on NBC. Ironically, four years ago today, the Giants beat the Pats 17-14 in Super Bowl XLII, ruining New England’s undefeated season and post season record.

So, the question is can the Giants do it again this year? As in 2008, the Giants are once again the underdogs, with New England a three point favorite. I don’t really think odds makers can predict a Super Bowl. There are too many outside forces going on, like the whole world watching, and the heightened pressure not to make mistakes.

And, often it comes down to just that…mistakes. Turnovers and penalties can upend a game into a lopsided score. So even when a team looks good on paper, all it takes is an early fumble, interception or missed kick to turn the tide.

Ok, down to predictions. As I said earlier, I don’t think odds makers can predict the outcome of  a Super Bowl, and neither can I. Enjoy the game, and pass the salsa, please.
