Super Bowl odds are nothing if not unpredictable. How could anyone have foreseen the New York Giants upset win against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl betting?
How could someone predict that the Arizona Cardinals would make it to Super Bowl XLIII? Super Bowl odds this year show that the Pittsburgh Steelers are about a touchdown favorite against the Cardinals in Super Bowl betting. The Cardinals finished the regular season at 9-7 but won the weak NFC West and surprised the Falcons, Panthers and Eagles on their way to the Super Bowl.
Did you know that Arizona just barely scored more points this season than they allowed (427-426)? The Cardinals are trying to duplicate New York’s success in Super Bowl odds last season. The Giants were the fifth seed last year and won three straight games to get to the Super Bowl and then they upset the Patriots in Super Bowl odds. The Cardinals are the 4th seed and less respected in Super Bowl odds than last year’s Giants.
Although the Steelers are favored in Super Bowl odds the Cardinals have turned into a Cinderella story and that type of team can appeal to the public. The opening Super Bowl odds came out with Pittsburgh a 7-point favorite but gamblers have driven that number down to 6.5.
Super Bowl odds show a total of 47 for this game between the Steelers and Cardinals. The Cardinals were a high scoring team this season with about two thirds of their games going over the total while Pittsburgh was just a slight over team this season. Gamblers will have to decide whether or not Arizona can put up enough points against Pittsburgh’s top ranked defense to go over the Super Bowl odds total.
Choosing the side could also be difficult for gamblers looking at Super Bowl odds. Do they go with the underdog and the feel good story of the Cardinals in Super Bowl odds or do they take the tradition and power of Pittsburgh in Super Bowl betting?
Regardless of what gamblers choose for Super Bowl XLIII, Super Bowl betting choices should be exciting.
