Coming up Feb 5 is Super Bowl XLVI with the New England Patriots playing the New York Giants in Indianapolis. As police step up security for pickpockets at the big game, the Associated Press reports odds-makers in Vegas are favoring the Patriots with a three point margin.

Those were the odds posed Sunday night after the Giants beat San Francisco 20-17 in overtime in the NFC championship game. Earlier Sunday New England beat Baltimore 23-20 for the AFC title.

A little word of advice on tickets, you can still get them, but this site says the average price was $3,000 on the secondary market, with face value somewhere between $800 and $1200, and parking is about $200. I think I'm watching it on television.
