    I put no faith in the odds makers. Although it is different because Cowher was better as an underdog, but Tomlin has an attitude like "we're the favorites and we expect to win"

    Just more fuel in the Cards" No one believes in Us" BS. Same line Whiz is regurgitating from 2005. Anyhow, I don't think we can cover Fitz, but I know we can get to Warner and if he's on his back he will have a hard time finding anyone down field.

    I'm not so sure. I don't think most people believe in the Cards and the betting $$$$ always tend to go heavily to the Steelers. If the money is rolling in on the Steelers in may go up a little.

    But I wouldn't bet on it!

    Steelers Favored a Touchdown Over Cardinals as Early Vegas Lines Open

    Steelers Favored a Touchdown Over Cardinals as Early Vegas Lines Open

    Posted Jan 19th 2009 12:15 AM by Will Brinson (author feed)
    Filed Under: AZ Cardinals, Steelers, NFL Gambling, NFL Playoffs, NFL Media Watch, Super Bowl

    Las Vegas rarely wastes any time setting lines for major sporting events and considering the Super Bowl is the very definition of that phrase, it shouldn't be shocking that Vegas has already released the line for the Pittsburgh Steelers - Arizona Cardinals matchup.

    What might be shocking is that the Steelers are favored by either 6.5 or 7 points, depending on which sportsbook you ask. Yes, it is a lot, thanks for noticing. However, it shouldn't be that big a surprise, I suppose, considering the total lack of respect that the Cardinals have gotten this year.Oh, and because the Steelers have been considered one of the NFL's best teams all season, while people tended to think the Cardinals were collapsing at the end of the regular season. But also because, apparently, Vegas thinks Pittsburgh's road to Tampa was tougher.
    "The AFC has a little more respect as far as the way they play power football," said MGM Mirage Inc. Race and Sports Books Director Jay Rood, who set lines in his books at 7. "They just seem to be the better league at this point."
    However, as Jay Kornegay of the Las Vegas Hilton noted, the Arizona bandwagon has been building steadily over recent weeks with gamblers (because they're perpetual losers, natch.) I would guess that a lot of money will end up on the Cardinals, but because of the Steelers' immense popularity, that line won't move much lower than six or so, depending on the Steelers' injury report.
