NY Giants Favourites For Super Bowl Glory

Friday 9th January 2009


THE NEW YORK GIANTS are given a 22 percent chance to repeat last season's exploits and win Super Bowl XLIII, according to Betfair customers.

The G-Men are also favourites to take top spot in the NFC Conference, currently on 42 percent, but the Carolina Panthers are not far behind on 34 percent.

Meanwhile the Pittsburgh Steelers are given a 35 percent chance of winning the AFC Conference. Steeler Nation last saw their team win the Conference Championship in 2005 and they look good again this year according to Betfair users, who also rate the side as the closest challenger to the Giants for the Super Bowl on 18 percent.

Betfair spokesman Michael Robb said: "The interest in betting on the NFL has been bigger than ever this year and with the remaining teams so close it looks like it's anyone's guess who will go on and win on February 1.

"Betfair has launched a new website, Betfair Predicts (, to make it easy for anyone to understand what the thousands of bettors on Betfair think is going to happen in the final weeks of the season."
