Look, we're not telling to play all of these as you would obviously have to be in Las Vegas to do that (*nod* *nudge* *wink*), but here are some prop bets that we find to be of some interest.  When in doubt, I always ask myself what the god of proposition bets, Prop Joe, would do.

1st Quarter:  OVER 10.5

3Q Team Total:  Giants OVER 3.5

Coin Toss:  Tails

Team to Score First:  Giants -125 (Patriots will choose to defer if they win toss and Giants usually receive kick if they win toss)
