The Steelers are one of the most popular teams in the NFL and will be a popular Superbowl betting choice against the Arizona Cardinals.
Superbowl odds have actually dropped on the Steelers since the opening number came out. The Steelers opened as 7 point favorites in Superbowl odds but are down to 6.5 point favorites. The drop could be due to what happened in last year’s Super Bowl when the New York Giants upset the heavily favored New England Patriots in Superbowl odds. The public was all over the Giants in that game in Superbowl betting and that could be one of the reasons the number has dropped on Pittsburgh. The public remembers mainly what happened last in Superbowl odds. They see some things in this year’s Arizona team that reminds them of last year’s New York Giants team.
The last time the Steelers were favored in Superbowl odds was in Super Bowl XL as they defeated the Seattle Seahawks 21-10. There are similarities from that Super Bowl to this year’s game. The Seahawks and Cardinals are in the same division, both have high profile offenses and the Superbowl odds considered them both underdogs.
Superbowl odds are not the only part of Superbowl betting. In addition to the side and total there will be hundreds of proposition wagers in Superbowl odds. Both quarterbacks, Kurt Warner and Ben Roethlisberger have high name recognition so you can expect to see a number of props that include them. The other high profile names expected to get a lot of attention in Superbowl odds props are Larry Fitzgerald, Willie Parker, Santonio Holmes and Hines Ward. It was Ward that actually won the Super Bowl XL MVP award in the Steelers win over the Seahawks.
Superbowl odds favor Pittsburgh by about a touchdown over Arizona with a total of 47. The Superbowl betting odds are always the most popular sports betting odds of the season and that should be the case again this year.
