OT: Super Bowl Line

Submitted by jamiemac on January 24th, 2011 at 1:36 AM

For those who are into such things as championship football games, the line is out

Green Bay -2.5 over Pittsburgh. Over/Under 46 points

I wont lie, I bought it up to a FG and already got 250 to win win 200 on Pitt +3, but I am a hardcore partisan there, yo.

I would take the under and 2.5 is allot more than I was thinking. I was going more along the lines of 1/.5.

The one negative about the steelers going to the superbowl is that damn black and yellow song. half the kids in my dorm won't stop playing it now. I'm not positive that the song is about the steelers but they believe it is and apperently in the video their waving terrible towels.

on the plus.. go woodley

Just seeing Rogers today against the Bears defense would have me taking the over. Pittsburgh has a good offense too, and Big Ben can sure score points when he needs to.

Thought it would be even, or Pitt by one.  They did look really good though on the road.

As for the 46, don't forget that the Pitt's offense scored 17 and GB's 14, so 47 even in better conditions, may be a stretch.

Steelers fans are gonna jump all over that.  I'd think the line will definitely swing a point or two and may be close to a pick 'em by game time.

Should be a very good game either way. BTW....what's it like to have a team you root for play in the Super Bowl? As a lifelong Lions fan now living in Cleveland I truly have no idea.

Looks like fun.

This should be a pick 'em (and trust me, if it were in GB or PIT, it'd be Home Team -3).  For some reason, Vegas HATES making SBs a pick 'em.  I think it might have happened once in the history of the game.

But based on Vegas' bias to "create" a spread in the SB, I was thinking it would be Pit -2.5, not GB.  This is based on both teams essentially playing the same conference championship game (assert dominance early, then let the other team back into it, before crushing their hopes and dreams).  So neither team has a "this one is hotter than the other" advantage, even if the media spins it that GB does (hint: they dont'). 

I think the Starks thing is a great story, but no way he runs on the Pit D.  And if you watched the game against Chicago, he was a huge reason they ultimately held on (if the Bears had gotten "game against Seattle Cutler", they would have won - no doubting that). 

Can Rodgers really beat the Steelers by himself?  Didn't Warner/Fitzgerald try this a few years back, post some "better than expected" results, while ultimately failing?  What am I missing here?

when the Colts were said to be the heavy favorites as the Steelers are this year, or so it seems, and nobody gave the Saints a chance.  Not saying that people aren't giving the packers a chance but it seems like everybody is picking against the packers.  I might end up taking the packers just because I think the packers will keep it close and no way in hell get blown out.
