(Newser) – Thousands of New York ticket  holders are banking on the Giants losing next Saturday to the undefeated Patriots—or at least that's what they're telling New England fans who are snapping up unwanted tickets online for big bucks. With New York's playoff berth already secure and many starters likely to be benched, there's not much to draw home fans to Giants Stadium.

But Pats supporters will be converging from across the region, clutching their eBay or StubHub receipts, and giddy with anticipation that their team will be the first ever to go 16-0. Some have been willing to lay down $1,600 for a chance to see history in the making, and one optimistic Giants fan is asking $210,000 for a pair of seats.
