The Patriots may be an NFL powerhouse, but in each of the franchise's three Super Bowl wins, they only earned a W by only three points. In Super Bowl XXXVI, the Patriots defeated the St. Louis Rams 20-17; in Super Bowl XXXVIII, they beat the Carolina Panthers 32-29; and finally, in Super Bowl XXXIX, they bested the Philadelphia Eagles, 24-21. So it should come as no surprise that going into this year's game, bet-takers favor the Patriots to defeat the Giants by, you guessed it, three points. Not to mention that the Pats' win over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game was also a three-point victory. With this in mind, maybe good things really do come in threes.
