In reality though, both teams are road teams in Superbowl odds. If you really think about that for a minute you will realize that how a team played on the road during the season could be very important as to how they do in Superbowl betting.
Superbowl odds have the Arizona Cardinals a 7-point underdog against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII. Can Arizona cover the Superbowl odds as a road team or will Pittsburgh cover as a road team? Let’s look at how Arizona and Pittsburgh did on the road this season and see how important it is in regards to Superbowl betting. The Cardinals were a poor road team. They went 3-5 during the regular season and they went 1-0 in the playoffs as they won at Carolina by a score of 33-13. You might forget that Arizona played two home games in the playoffs and only one road contest. Except for games at Carolina, the Cardinals had all kinds of trouble on the road this season. That could be important in Superbowl odds.
On the other side of the coin you have the Steelers in Superbowl odds who went 6-2 on the road this season. Pittsburgh won their six games on the road this season by an average of 13.5 points per game as Superbowl odds stats tell us. Remember last year’s Superbowl odds? The New York Giants were a superb road team that was getting 12.5 points in Superbowl odds against the New England Patriots. The Patriots were unbeaten so they won all of their home and road games but the Giants were a much better team on the road than at home. That could be one reason they won versus Superbowl odds.
Superbowl odds have the Steelers favored by a touchdown over the Cardinals. That seems like an accurate Superbowl betting line considering Pittsburgh was an excellent team this season on the road while the Cardinals struggled. This road factor is just one thing to keep in mind as you look at Superbowl betting for Super Bowl XLIII on February 1st.
