The Pittsburgh Steelers are led by controversial quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. The much maligned signal caller spent the first four games serving a suspension and returned to aid the Steelers in the run for a seventh ring. Rashard Mendenhall leads the strong running game and the top ranked defense is one of the toughest to beat in the entire league.
The Green Bay Packers needed to win the last week of the regular season to even make the playoffs. Now they are just one game away from being crowned the NFL champions. They got this far behind an electric, high-flying offense led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has a full complement of weapons to spread the ball out too and put big points up on a daily basis. The Packers defense is a pass rushing dynamo led by rookie linebacker Clay Matthews. The Packers defense will try and shut down the Steelers bruising balanced attack.
Both teams have solid sports betting trends that support them in this big game.
The Steelers are 34-16-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 51 games as an underdog, 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 games as an underdog of 0.5-3.0 and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 playoff games.
The Green bay Packers are 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game, 19-6-1 ATS in their last 26 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game and 5-1 ATS in the last six games overall.
This Super Bowl has the potential to be one of the most exciting games in the history of the NFL!
