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.
