The New York Giants are high on the list of possible Super Bowl betting teams, as are the Cowboys and the Titans. But the team that is rising quickly in the Super bowl betting talks and has to be considered one of the favorites for the Superbowl XLIII betting is the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Super Bowl XLIII betting fans saw that coming into the regular season there was a lot of talk about all the potential problems in the Steelers would have in during the 2008 season and everyone could list a dozen reasons why this team would never make it to the Superbowl XLIII betting action. But 14 games later, with a record of 11-3 and one of the best defensive statistical seasons in the history of the NFL, most fans can now list a dozen reasons why this team will definitely be featured in the Superbowl XLIII betting odds.
After losing Alan Fanaca, one of the best interior linemen in the league, from a line that already had holes in it, the Superbowl XLIII betting pundits didn’t think the Steelers’ offense would be able to protect Big Ben or create running lanes. And for the most part, they were right. But it’s mattered little as the Steelers defense this year has been outstanding, and if the team should make the Superbowl XLIII betting odds, it will be largely because of this group.
Pittsburgh always has a solid defense, but this year it is freakishly good and seems to be Super bowl betting material. No opponent has been able to move the ball on this unit and any potential Superbowl XLIII betting opponent will have to think long and hard on how to beat this team. Statistically, this defense is the best in 18 years and one of the best this storied franchise has ever put together.
One weak spot on this squad is its running game, which in its current form will not likely be enough to get a win in the Superbowl XLIII betting odds. Ranking near the bottom of the pack in the NFL, and racked by injuries, the Steelers’ running game has been anemic. But one thing that Super bowl betting fans need to consider, and something that should serve this team well in its quest for a berth in the Superbowl XLIII betting odds, is that the Steelers schedule this season was perhaps the hardest in the history of the NFL. So it’s hardly surprising that playing against the best defenses in the league week in and week out the offense has struggled.
But its those struggles that have helped strengthen this team and gives it an inside track to the Superbowl XLIII betting action. Open a New Account and bet on the Super Bowl 43 at SBG Global!
