INDIANAPOLIS, IN (The Spread) – The biggest injury surrounding Super Bowl XLVI involves tight end Rob Gronkowski, who is listed as day-to-day with an ankle injury.
Seated at a podium and without the walking boot he wore last week, Gronkowski didn't seem overly concerned Tuesday that he would miss Sunday's game against the New York Giants, saying ```The game is six days away. I can be 100 percent by then or I can be 2 percent by then. It's day to day.''
Gronkowski says that he could be anywhere from perfectly healthy to “two-percent” for Sunday’s NFL tilt between the Patriots and Giants. He injured the ankle during New England’s victory over Baltimore in the AFC championship game.
Oddsmakers currently list the Patriots as a 3 or 2.5-point favorite depending on the book, while the over/under total is currently 54.5 points after opening at 55.5. And of the current wagers on Sunday’s game, 61% of NFL bettors currently favor the Giants.
Gronkowski set an NFL record for his position this season with 17 touchdown catches and had 90 receptions overall for 1,327 yards. He's made a team-high 15 catches for a 15.5-yard average and three TDs in the postseason. He hurt the ankle in the AFC title game victory against Baltimore.Want More From TheSpread.com?
