Does a prediction count as a guarantee? (
By Will Brinson

INDIANAPOLIS -- There's nothing better than when an athlete guarantees a win. That's mainly because it almost always backfires, but whatever. But here's a strange one: Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty predicted a final score of the game on Sunday afternoon.

Jason Romano, an ESPN producer, asked his Twitter followers for a prediction on the final score of the game. Whoever got the closest win a book as a prize. Canty retweeted him and added "Giants 28, NewEngland 17."

Canty is totally within his legal NFL rights to tweet on Sunday morning. In fact, he can spend all day on Twitter if he wants, up until 90 minutes before kickoff of the Super Bowl. That's probably not the best way to get prepped for a game, but, hey, to each his own.

The questions is whether or not this counts as a guarantee. Technically, it doesn't, because it's just a prediction. But it does mean that Canty firmly believes the Patriots and Tom Brady can't score more than 20 points against he and the rest of the Giants defense. It means he thinks the Giants are more than 10 points better than the Patriots.

It means, ultimately, that he thinks the Giants will win Super Bowl XLVI pretty handily. And since plenty of Patriots are on Twitter, there's a pretty good chance they'll see this and figure out a way to use it as motivation.
