Offense vs. Defense in Super Bowl Odds

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Super Bowl odds for Super Bowl XLIII match Arizona’s fourth-ranked offense against Pittsburgh’s number one ranked defense. Super Bowl betting odds have the Steelers as 6.5 point favorites with a total of 47.

Super Bowl odds normally favor the team with the better defense. It is defense that wins championships and the Steelers are favored in Super Bowl odds to win their sixth Super Bowl. Will Super Bowl betting fans back the Steelers in Super Bowl odds because of their defense? Troy Polamalu leads a very talented defensive squad that just doesn’t give up many points.

Though Arizona may be an underdog in the Super Bowl odds, the Cardinals do have a Super Bowl winning quarterback in Kurt Warner. He is now 8-2 in his career in the playoffs and should not be underestimated in Super Bowl odds. This will be Warner’s third Super Bowl appearance and he already has one victory as Super Bowl betting history shows. Super Bowl odds information tells us that the Cardinals have the more explosive offense led by Warner and superstar receiver Larry Fitzgerald. He now has 419 yards and five TDs this postseason as Super Bowl odds stats indicate.

On the other side of the ball for both teams is where the game might be decided in Super Bowl odds. Pittsburgh has a Super Bowl winning quarterback of their own in Ben Roethlisberger and big play potential with wide receiver Santonio Holmes and running back Willie Parker. They will be facing an Arizona defense that was weak for most of the season. Yes, the Cardinals defense did play better in the playoffs but it was Arizona’s offense that carried the day. Super Bowl odds gamblers wonder whether or not Arizona’s defense can step up and stop Pittsburgh if the Cardinals offense is held down.

Super Bowl odds have the Steelers favored by about a touchdown but gamblers are intrigued with the Cardinals. When a team wins three straight games as an underdog in the playoffs they start to get respect and that is what is happening with Arizona in Super Bowl betting.
