Super Bowl betting fans got a great lesson in why sometimes it’s a smart idea to take the money line as the Steelers may have been the Super Bowl winner but they didn’t cover the spread. The Super Bowl betting line closed with Pittsburgh as a 6.5-point chalk and with a total of 46.5, a number that was cleared on that final Steeler drive.
Pittsburgh looked well on their way to an easy Super Bowl betting win late in the third quarter after a Jeff Reed 21 yard field goal which made the score 20-7 in favor of Pittsburgh. But the Cardinals rallied to thrill Super Bowl betting participants as quarterback Kurt Warner got the hot hand.
It looked as if the Cardinals would be the Super Bowl winner as they took a 23-20 lead with 2:47 remaining in the game after a 64 yard touchdown pass play from Warner to Larry Fitzgerald. The one Super Bowl betting question then came into play as the Arizona defense was charged with the task of stopping the Steelers.
In the end, Arizona couldn’t get it done as the Steelers went on a drive that will long be remembered in the annals of Super Bowl betting history. Led by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh went on a 78-yard drive that ended in a 6 yard touchdown pass from “Big Ben” to Santonio Holmes as 42 seconds remained on the clock.
While the Cardinals defense wasn’t good enough to get the ring, it was good enough to get the Super Bowl betting cash as it played better than expected. The Super Bowl winner Pittsburgh was out-gained 374-234 in the air and held a small Super Bowl betting advantage on the ground with a 58-33 yardage edge.
Warner had a stellar Super Bowl betting performance for Arizona as he passed for 377 yards and 3 touchdowns. Roethlisberger passed for 256 yards and that clinching score. Another key play in this Super Bowl betting thriller was Pittsburgh’s James Harrison taking an interception 100 yards for a score in the 2nd quarter with just 18 seconds to go!
