Odds to win the Superbowl: Steelers big favorite

 Now that we are down to just 4 NFL teams in the 2008/2009 postseason, it's the perfect time to look at the odds to win the 2009 Superbowl. For the purpose of this article we will look at the current odds posted by the popular online sportsbook Bookmaker (official), which are usually the best lines you can find on the net by a sportsbook with solid reputation. There is no need to tell you that the Superbowl betting this year is expected to amount to over a billion in wagers world-wide and finding the best odds could be crucial for a great season-ender.

 But without wasting any more time, at Bookmaker the odds to win the Superbowl this year are heavily favoring the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are listed at the bookie with odds +141 to take it all. Considering that the Steelers will face the Ravens for the AFC Championship this weekend and the fact that Baltimore were just a game behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North table, it's clear that the sportsbook has made its mind once and for all about who will win the Superbowl this year. Meanwhile at Bookmaker the Baltimore Ravens are sitting on +397 odds to win the Superbowl.

 And looking at the last two remaining NFC contenders, there is no surprise that the Philadelphia Eagles are +170 to win the Superbowl. The Eagles will still have to go through this NFL season's wonder-team, the Arizona Cardinals, who seemed unmoved stomping over the Falcons and upsetting almost all bettors with their decisive victory over the Panthers in the playoffs. Still, the Arizona Cardinals are the Superbowl underdog this year, listed with the whopping odds +710 to win the Bowl. But currently, no matter which team you decide to bet on to win the Superbowl, one thing is for sure, you will more than double your money. Not to mention that last year's odds to win the Superbowl on the Giants were once in a lifetime opportunity, long gone.
