I have never bet in Vegas on a game and I don't know how to read it. I understand the spreads, but can someone tell me what the chances are for the Giants to win, like 10 to 1??

hahah no I know what 10 to 1 means, I was curious about the other stuff thats on there. Sorry I have no examples I can't view those sites at work. Does anyone know the odds as of today?

10 - 1 = bet 10 to win 1

1 - 10 = bet 1 to win 10

Just in case you need more things to bet on Sunday, MJD has an article on yahoo sports full of wonderful suggestions

Are you the type that can't enjoy football without large amounts of money riding on it? Does the Super Bowl depress you because you only have one game to gamble on, instead of 16? Did you see Owning Mahowny as an inspiring biopic about a courageous hero instead of a cautionary tale about greed and addiction? Are you willing to risk your child's long-term dental health on how strongly you feel about Eli Manning's ability to read a defense?

Then this post, my degenerate friend, is for you.
