High Total in Super Bowl Betting

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Super Bowl betting for Super Bowl XLIV has the highest total in history at 56.5.

It is expected that Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts and Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints will have big game and one of them could win the Super Bowl MVP.  Super Bowl XLIV odds have the Colts as 5.5 point favorites in the game.

Super Bowl betting will feature two of the top offenses in the NFL.  In fact, the Saints had the highest scoring offense in the league.   Drew Brees threw 34 TD passes this season while Peyton Manning threw 33.  Both teams are expected to move the ball efficiently in this Super Bowl XLIV odds matchup. “Every game has its own identity. So, when you go into a ballgame sometimes it requires your offense to play extremely well," Colts coach Jim Caldwell said.  Neither defense was that great so this could be a high scoring game in Super Bowl betting. The Saints are ranked 20th in points allowed in the regular season while the Colts were 8th in points allowed. "No matter who’s in the league, they’re going to have weapons. The Saints have more than most, an effective running game, three high-powered backs and four or five receivers who can really get after it," Colts linebacker Gary Brackett said. "I think only 11 of them can play at one time, thankfully, but I think we’ll be in good shape."  The Saints usually win with Brees throwing the ball all over the field.  If the Colts can slow him down they are likely to win in Super Bowl betting.

The Colts have an offense that is just as impressive in this Super Bowl betting matchup.  Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark each had 100 catches this season and Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie have really come on of late.  The Colts are going to move the ball against the Saints in Super Bowl betting.  New Orleans only stops teams because they force turnovers.  If the Colts don’t turn the ball over they will win and cover Super Bowl XLIV odds.  Predicting turnovers though is a tough thing to do as you consider Super Bowl XLIV odds.  The Saints forced Minnesota to turn it over five times in the NFC title game. They will need to force Indianapolis into at least a few on Sunday if they are to win in Super Bowl betting. "Our defense is one of the main reasons on why we’re going to the Super Bowl," New Orleans running back Reggie Bush said.
