Mirror Images in Super Bowl Odds

Super Bowl odds for Super Bowl XLIII have two teams that on the surface might seem different but in reality are very similar.

The Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers are mirror images in many ways. Let’s take a look at some of the similarities between these two Super Bowl betting opponents.

Super Bowl odds do favor the Steelers in this game by a touchdown but the teams could easily play a much closer game. Super Bowl odds information tells us that both teams stress fundamentals and avoiding mistakes. This philosophy comes from their head coaches. Mike Tomlin is the Steelers head coach while Ken Whisenhunt leads the Cardinals. Super Bowl betting gamblers may remember that Whisenhunt was Pittsburgh’s offensive coordinator for three seasons, including their Super Bowl odds winning season against the Seattle Seahawks. Whisenhunt was expected to get the Steelers head coaching job when Bill Cowher left but owner Dan Rooney hired Tomlin instead.

The Steelers had the NFL’s toughest schedule this season as Super Bowl odds stats tell us. Super Bowl odds numbers show that they won 12 games and dispatched of San Diego and Baltimore in the playoffs. The Cardinals did not win as many games during the regular season as Pittsburgh but people might forget that Arizona had their division wrapped up by November. Whisenhunt made the tough decision before the season began to go with Kurt Warner at quarterback over the youngster Matt Leinart and it proved correct as Arizona made it to the Super Bowl. Both Warner and Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger have won in Super Bowl odds before. They may be of different ages but they know how to win in Super Bowl odds matchups.

The Steelers know the Cardinals well and vice versa in this Super Bowl betting matchup. Whisenhunt knows all about the Pittsburgh Steelers and they know him well. Although the teams do some things differently, they do many things the same as Super Bowl odds stats show. It starts from the coaches all the way down the line in this Super Bowl odds matchup. Super Bowl odds favor the Steelers but the intangibles might make this game even in Super Bowl betting.
