You guys know that I've focused on turnovers to direct me to this year's winners. Sticking with that theme but the info ain't gonna be easy to do any predicting from.

I went back and looked at all the Playoff games back to and including '94. So anything I quote going forward here will have come from thatr timeframe.

Let's start with this number to show you how important turnovers will be to the outcome of this game.

Since '94 the winner of the Super Bowl was 13-1-3 to win the turnover battle in that game. The only exception was in '05 when the Steelers committed 2 turnovers to the Seahawks 1 and still won the game, 21-10. In three games the turnovers were split.

Here's the breakdown by round:

48-10-14 WC to advance
49-15-8 Div to advance
26-4-4 CC to advance
13-1-3 SB winner to win the turnover battle

So now that we see that the team who wins the turnover battle is 13-1 to win the Super Bowl we've gotta look at these two teams outa that lens.

As teams morph as the season progresses, I have decided to only use te second half of the season to look at turnover ratios.

20-3 That's the Patriot turnover ratio for the second half of the season excluding Playoffs.

13-13 That's the Giant's turnover ratio for the second half of the season excluding Playoffs.

But here's where things get tricky.

6-1 That's the Giant turnover ratio in the Playoffs.

2-5 That's the Patriot turnover ratio in the Playoffs. Yes. Negative. They have lost the turnover battle in both their Playoff games this year and yet they buck the odds and continue to advance.

So the question is will the Pats get back to their late regular season form and/or will the Giants get back to their late season form or will they continue their post season tendencies which have been very different?

Here are the Pre SB Playoff ratios of all SB participants back to '94 and the SB result.

Someone(s) look through those numbers and tell us what you find that has pointing value. I need a break. Been doin' this stuff for hours and days.

Here's one I see looking at those isolations:

Since '94 the WC teams who make it to the SB are 8-0-1 ATS.

Thanks Hache. Best of luck to you, bud.

Haha. Sorry cruise. Takes time to do this crap that I do. You did see what I posted re Wild Card teams who make it to the SB, right?

And if that isn't bad enough, here's some more stuff I pulled outa those isolations (all supporting the G men. Damn)

I get 10-5-2 ATS for the better ratio.

I also get 6-1 ATS if the better ratioed team was a SB dog. (The one loss was Chi in '06 when they had only a +1 plurality.

I also notice that the only team to have a + ratio as high as the Giants today was San Fran in '94 who were 18 point favs over SDo and won and covered 49-26.

Not lookin' good for my Patsies. Damn. May have to sit back and watch this baby without action.
