2011 Super Bowl: Green Bay Packers Remain Slight Favorites Over Pittsburgh Steelers

The opening line on the 2011 Super Bowl between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers was 2.5 points in favor of the Packers and that's risen slightly to three points. The Packers have been hot in the playoffs and folks have noticed that which is the reason they've favored at this moment.

There are some really interesting odds regarding the 2011 Super Bowl.

For example, the over/under on first half points for the Packers is 12 and for the Steelers it's 11.5. For the final score, the Packers are placed at 23.5 points and the Steelers at 21 points. The over/under on the game is 45 points.

This would be a very difficult game to pick the over/under because, while both defenses are superb, the offenses have clearly shown they're capable of putting up a ton of points. The Packers have put up 45 points or more in two of their last five games while the Steelers have put up over 30 points twice in the last four games. 

Two great defenses plus to two great offenses makes this a tough game to pick.
