Breaking News: Our Super Bowl XLIII Pick

A Bob Mantz Selection: Super Bowl 43. Pittsburgh Steelers v the Arizona Cardinals. Ben Roethlisberger v Kurt Warner. We have picked the Steelers in all of their playoff games this year but we also are one of the few who have picked the Cards, as underdogs, in all 3 of their playoff games - leading to an overall verified 8-2 record against the spread in the 2008-2009 NFL Playoffs.

The Super Bowl XLIII line has remained steady at Steelers -7. We see the difference between the two teams as somewhere around 5.5 to 7 so we would have loved to have seen a 10 point line for gambling purposes. We'd probably bet if we see a 7.5 line. (We're not seeing it yet and the line will probably drop after this selection is released.)

So. What to do? Borrow Glauber's magic 8 ball? No, not necessary. The line is still above where we feel that we need it - we just would have liked it a bit higher for betting purposes.

Anquan Boldin is getting healthy. Hines Ward is sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber and awaking every 3 hours to ice himself. Not Good. Kurt Warner is 7-2 in the postseason and is the fourth highest-rated passer in NFL playoff history. Ben is hit or miss.

We have said that this will be a better Super Bowl than many have predicted it might be. We think the numbers bear out that the stats between the teams, even sans QBs, are a lot closer than most seem to be reporting.
