The Patriots are a 3 point favorite going into Super Bowl XLVI, putting the Giants in the familiar role of underdog, one that they cherish.
Defensive end Justin Tuck said, ““A lot of people haven’t given us a shot, and I think we kind of like it that way.”
“So for all you oddsmakers out there, just keep rooting against us.”
The Giants were big underdogs when they played the Patriots in the Super Bowl 4 years ago, but 3 points is hardly “not giving them a shot.” Although, any perceived slight is a chance for a little extra motivation, and in football – having a chip on your shoulder goes a long way.
