I am amazed to find out this morning that Green Bay is the favorite in Super Bowl XLV. They are definitely one of the hot teams right now, however, Pittsburgh arguably just beat the best team left in the playoffs. Of course maybe my bias is getting a hold of me, but alas it matters no more as I look to next year for vindication. Now I get to root against the team that beat up my Jets, however, it does not mean that I won’t go ahead and place a bet against that same team. That’s right – Pittsburgh is favored based on the stats and the stats don’t lie; although they are not always right! In any case, here is a synopsis of team strength vs team strength:
Pittsburgh rushing attack #11 regular season versus Green Bay rush defense #18
Green Bay pass attack #5 regular season versus Pittsburgh pass defense #12
What does it all mean. It means Pittsburgh’s rushing attack and clock control wins out and good luck to GB’s pass defense stopping Big Ben in motion. Pitts has the recent Super Bowl experience, Green Bay has been absent too long. The system gives Pitts the advantage with a little over 2 points, meaning Pittsburgh should be laying at least 2 points. The fact that they are getting 3 is a no brainer. The bottom line: take Pittsburgh with the points! Let’s see if we can make it 12 wins and 5 losses to end a great season!!
