NFL Betting Lines Steelers vs Packers Super Bowl Odds

steelers vs packersNo team can make it through the 4-game preseason, the 16-game regular season, the 2 to 3-game playoffs and the Super Bowl betting action without sustaining some injuries to its roster. The lucky teams have only a handful of injuries and only to supporting cast, no their star players.

But the Pittsburgh Steelers (14-4) have not been that lucky, at least in terms of key injuries. Early in the season they lost their starting DE Aaron Smith, perhaps the most underrate defensive player in the NFL and one of the top D-lineman in the game.

But if there is any certainty heading into this game between the #2 seeded Steelers (13-4) and the #6 seeded Jets (13-5) it’s that no team has had much success against either team running the ball this post season (or even during the regular season) and the coaching staffs of both these teams are too smart to keep beating a dead horse.

NFL Betting Lines: Bears vs Dolphins Thursday Night Football

November 18th, 2010 No comments

bears vs dolphinsThe Chicago Bears are perhaps the most enigmatic team in the 2011 NFL gambling action. On paper this team has some terrific stats, especially on defense, and has very impressive 6-3 record. It’s also tied with the Green Bay Packers for the best record in the NFC North.

Yet no one believes that this team is a legitimate contender and even some of its stats seem inflated because of the relatively weak schedule this team has played so far.

On Thursday this team will get good road test against the 5-4 Miami Dolphins. Read more…
