Super Bowl odds for Super Bowl XLIII show a true contrast as the Pittsburgh Steelers meet the Arizona Cardinals.
A team with a rich Super Bowl odds tradition meets a team with none. Super Bowl betting odds have the Steelers as 6.5 point favorites with a total of 47. Super Bowl odds history tells us that the Steelers will be trying to win their sixth Super Bowl title while the Cardinals will be trying to win their first. The Cardinals did win a title back in 1947 as the Chicago Cardinals but that was before the Super Bowl was established. Super Bowl betting history shows that it also marks the second longest drought in pro sports history without a title behind the Chicago Cubs.
Super Bowl odds contrasts don’t end with the history of the teams. Super Bowl betting statistics tell us that the Steelers have the #1 defense in the NFL while the Cardinals have an offense that has put up at least 30 points in each of their three playoff games.
Pittsburgh Steelers football through the years has been all winning in Super Bowl odds. From Terry Bradshaw and the Steel Curtain defense to head coaches Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher, the Steelers have had a rich history of Super Bowl odds success. The Cardinals haven’t even been to a Super Bowl until now. They do have a Super Bowl winning quarterback though. Kurt Warner took the St. Louis Rams to two Super Bowls and won one of them. Warner is actually older than Pittsburgh’s head coach Mike Tomlin which is just another interesting Super Bowl odds contrast.
Super Bowl odds favor the Pittsburgh Steelers who were the #2 seed in the AFC. The Super Bowl odds underdog Cardinals were the #4 seed in the NFC but actually were given the least amount of respect as they were actually underdogs in their opening game against Atlanta.
Normally the public will bet the favorite in Super Bowl odds but this is a matchup of contrasts and the public might decide to take the underdog Cardinals in Super Bowl betting. It worked last year with the New York Giants in Super Bowl odds and if Larry Fitzgerald continues to dominate, it might work again in Super Bowl XLIII.
