Super Bowl XLVI: Who Ya Got?

We're about six hours away from kickoff time in Indianapolis. . .yes, the pre-game stuff has started already and, yes, I probably should have had this up a lot sooner than now. . .but it's time to put it on the table and let us know who you think is going to be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at the end of this evening's game.

I've made my official prediction in the Super Bowl Stream we have going over at SB Nation Minnesota, and I see no reason to change it at this point. Both of these teams are, obviously, great. . .the New York Giants have won five straight elimination games, including knocking off the top two seeds in the NFC playoffs on the road. The New England Patriots haven't been beaten since Week 9, when they lost to. . .the Giants.

The Patriots are three-point favorites in this one, and they should be. . .and I think they'll cover that, but not by much. I just have a hard time seeing Tom Brady having two bad games in a row (by his own admission, he was bad in the AFC Championship Game), and I think that he's going to be supremely motivated by the loss earlier this season to the Giants. Oh, and if you think he isn't still pissed off about Super Bowl XLII, then you're apparently unfamiliar with Tom Brady.

Eli Manning has been playing great football, and this is not so much a pick against him as it is a pick for Brady, in all honesty. At the end of the night, though, I think Brady finds his way on to the short list of NFL quarterbacks with four Super Bowl rings and put himself firmly into the "Greatest of All Time" discussion, if he isn't there already.

The Pick: Patriots 31, Giants 27

So, ladies and gentlemen. . .who do you have this evening?
