Super Bowl betting enthusiasts we have arrived at the final game, the two best remaining teams are preparing to battle it out for league supremacy on Sunday February 6, 2011 for Super Bowl 45. This year’s football betting finalists has fans from the NFL’s two biggest fan bases chomping at the bit as the Green Bay Packers take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Here is an update on the odds for the two finalists.
Despite not making it to the Super Bowl finals since 1998, the Green Bay Packers led by Brett Favre, we mean Aaron Rodgers, are a four to two favorite to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Personally, the move comes as a shock, as one would figure that the Pittsburgh Steelers, winners of two of the last five Super Bowl games since 2005, would hold an edge in bettor’s minds.
However, as this is the case, bettors looking to wager on the Steelers to once again become Vince Lombardi Trophy winners, can bet on the team at two to one odds. Pittsburgh and Green Bay both have great defenses and nice offenses, but as we saw in the Steelers victory over the Jets Troy Polamalu is a God.
What’s more, this may upset New York and Chicago, but the NFL clearly won out with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers winning the two NFL Conference Championship games over the weekend. As we noted earlier, this season’s Super Bowl has the two biggest fan bases in the league battling it out for NFL supremacy.
Furthermore, as bettors of the two squads have found out in recent years, the two biggest selling football jerseys in the last five years have been Ben Roethlisberger’s number seven and Aaron Rodgers number 12 jerseys. When one of these two quarterbacks wins the Super Bowl, you can guarantee fans from other teams will be purchasing that quarterback’s jersey.
