Super Bowl odds excitement is high once again for the Men of Steel as they attempt to win their third Super Bowl betting appearance in the last 6 seasons in the Ben Roethlisberger era.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have opened at Sports Gambling as a 2.5 point Super Bowl gambling underdog against the Green Bay Packers. Game time on Sunday is set for 6:30 PM ET. The game will be played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX, home of the Dallas Cowboys.
Pittsburgh looks like a very dangerous and live dog with the NFL Super Bowl odds as many handicappers think that the wrong team is favored. When you look at the Steelers body of work it is easy to understand that line of thinking.
Pittsburgh had a regular season record of 12-4 straight up and 10-6 against the spread with 9 of their 16 games going under the total. Pittsburgh was the number two seed in the AFC playoffs and scored home payouts over the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets to earn their spot on the Super Bowl odds board.
Pittsburgh has gotten the money in their last 4 games entering Super Sunday. In fact the Steelers are a lot like the Packers in that they seem to be peaking at just the right time with 8 wins straight up in their last 9 games with 7 of those games also covering the spread. Pittsburgh has gone over the total in 4 of their last 5 games including both of their playoff matchups.
The Steelers were not looking like a team that would have a shot at the Super Bowl betting line after their embarrassing November 14th 39-26 home loss on Sunday Night Football to the New England Patriots, who seemed to be making a statement as the top team in the AFC with that matchup.
But since that time the Steelers have been the most dangerous team on the board and have built up an incredible resume for action with the Super Bowl odds as they had a win this year over the top seed in the NFC, Atlanta, along with 2 wins over Baltimore.
