Bovada Sportsbook is one of our favorite sportsbooks, as it has some of the best football props that you will find on the internet. Check out our Super Bowl prop sheet for the New York Giants, as they get ready to try to get the job done in Super Bowl 46.

Eli Manning Pass Attempts Over/Under 39.5 Pass Attempts: The problem that the Giants have had this year is running the football. Neither RBs Ahmad Bradshaw nor Brandon Jacobs has really done all that much, and the end result has seen Eli have to put a heck of a lot more on his shoulders. Manning threw the ball at least 40 times in four straight games this season towards the end of the year, and he had at least 40 throws eight times including in playoffs. It’s not a great sample set to use in the end, but we just can’t ignore the possibilities that Head Coach Tom Coughlin are going use to try to take advantage of this questionable New England secondary, one which has given up oodles of yards this year at times. We have to think that Eli is going to wing it at least 40 times in this one.

Brandon Jacobs Over/Under 1 Reception: We just love it when we see Super Bowl props like this one. Seeing that “1” on the board looks too easy. It only takes one catch… just one play that could happen at any time to at least ensure a push in this one. However, when you really look back at it, Jacobs isn’t the better back between he and Bradshaw in passing situations, and he isn’t the better back when you think about goal line and short yardage carries either. Over the course of the last six games (including the postseason), Bradshaw has been on the field for almost double the plays that Jacobs has, and the bigger of the two backs only has five receptions in those six games. Jacobs went seven games this year without a single catch against having five games (three of which Bradshaw wasn’t in the lineup) with two or more receptions. Don’t get suckered into this one. The ‘under’ is the right play to make.

Osi Umenyiora Tackles + Assists Over/Under 2.5: We really aren’t all that sure why this prop is this low. Umenyiora isn’t really used all that much against the run because he isn’t all that effective with it, but he does do a great job rushing the passer, which means that he is going be on the field quite a bit harassing QB Tom Brady. Umenyiora has had a great postseason, picking up 5.5 sacks in three games, though those have basically been his only tackles. We aren’t so sure that just based upon sacks, Umenyiora might not reach this point. However, for as much as we are anticipating him being on the field in this game, we do think that more often than not, he will end up with at least three tackles in some form or another.

Lawrence Tynes Over/Under 1.5 Field Goals: Four years ago, Tynes had to be wondering whether he was going to be keeping his job or not. He had missed a slew of field goals on the season for the G-Men, including missing at Lambeau Field in the NFC Championship Game twice before redeeming himself and kicking the game winning three pointer in OT. He did well in the Super Bowl two weeks later and won his job in the offseason that year again and never looked back. Tynes really hasn’t done all that well this year too, especially down the stretch. He hasn’t kicked a field goal of longer than 40 yards in a game since December 18th, but he is still getting his chances. The Giants aren’t a good red zone team, which might leave for a bunch of opportunities to get the job done. He has attempted at least two field goals in nine straight games, including in all three postseason efforts. Of course, making those kicks and getting the chances are two totally different things, but we think that in the big one in the Super Bowl, Tynes will get his chance to be a hero and make at least two kicks at least half the time.
