New York Giants vs. New England Patriots Super Bowl Betting Odds

New York Giants vs. New England Patriots Super Bowl betting odds can be found at all of's most prestigious online sportsbooks.  But there are some important things one needs to know when betting the 2008 Super Bowl online.

1.  Check for value.  Some online sportsbooks will have a different line on the Super Bowl and even a half point can make all the difference in the world if the game falls on a specific number.

2.  Don't just bet the game.  Look for the best New York Giants vs New England Patriots Super Bowl propositions, such as odds on who will get the first touchdown and first team to have an interception.  This is also a time for funny props such as the one that we mentioned on Fox News two years ago: Will the Burger King score a touchdown (yep, odds on a Burger King commercial).  Because there are so many propositions available, the gambler has the advantage over the bookie who can't possibly focus on all that is out there in terms of betting options.

3.  Get your bets in early!  Don't wait until Super Bowl day.  You will encounter difficulty accessing some websites.  It is the busiest single betting day on the planet. 

4.  Don't limit yourself to just online online gambling website, open accounts at two, three, even four in order to take full advantage of top signup/deposit bonuses.
