2011 Super Bowl Odds: Final Packers-Steelers Line Still Favors Green Bay

With just hours to go until the Super Bowl, it's time to take one final look at the odds and point spread for Sunday's game. The Green Bay Packers opened as small favorites over the Pittsburgh Steelers and the betting line has held steady throughout the last two weeks. If anything, in fact, the Packers have picked up a little stream, with the line moving slightly more in their favor.

As of now, the Packers are 3-point favorites at both Bodog and 5Dimes, two of the most prominent online sports books. The Packers opened as 2.5-point favorites two weeks ago, with the line settling at three-points on Saturday, the day before the big game. It's no surprise at all considering the love-affair much of the betting public has had with Green Bay throughout the playoffs.

The over/under for the game, a wager on the total points scored, has settled between 44.5 and 45.5, remaining steady throughout the last two weeks. At Bodog, it's 45.5 points, slightly higher than 5Dimes 44.5 point over/under. If the line, couple with the statistics of each team, is any indication, we're looking at a low scoring affair on Sunday.

We'll keep an eye on the line as last minute action comes in. It's typical for bettors to wager heavily in the hours leading up to the game, getting late money in and, perhaps, causing the line to shift at the last moment. Keep an eye on our 2011 Super Bowl StoryStream for more on the game, as well.
