Super Bowl betting — and prop bets, in particular — attract sharks and suckers alike who can’t afford a $3.5-million, 30-second commercial spot on NBC’s telecast or a $2,500 nosebleed seat at Lucas Oil Stadium, but do have a some lunch money to wager on Super Sunday.

Anyone want to play football at my brother's house?

We're pretty sure this is what happened after the Giants beat the 49ers in the NFC Championship game on Sunday.

Eli probably got on the phone and called up the Pats to see if they wanted to play a little football at his brother's house in Indianapolis.

Giants Fans Need to Enjoy this Unexpected Super Bowl Ride

Enough with the prognosticating. Giants fans should simply enjoy a ride that might be the best one yet.

Everything about the 2011 Giants has been said and said again. And again.

Eli is full of crap, how dare he put his name next to Tom Brady’s! Except, actually, he might be Elite but not quite as good as Brady or Rodgers or Jesus – but wait, hold on a second, because Eli’s playing really good right now and is approaching Elite status, so now we’re seriously starting to wonder whether or not you can spell Elite without E-L-I.
