betED.com Offers the Best Super Bowl Line on Cardinals

While every other online sportsbook had the Pittsburgh Steelers as a -6 ½ favorite to win the 2009 Super Bowl, the daring folks at betED.com were one of the few offering the line at Arizona Cardinals +7 heading into Monday afternoon, a line that is sure not to last unless it's locked in immediately.

While a half point might not seem like much, 7 points compared to 6 ½ can make all the difference in the world. 

"If you bet the Cardinals and they lose by a touchdown, the result is a ‘push'," explains Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com.  "Essentially you don't win anything, but you don't lose either."

For anyone that happens to have Arizona as a +6 ½ underdog in his scenario, the loss would be heartbreaking.

"Arizona bettors will be thinking that Pittsburgh cannot win by more than two field goals," Shapiro said.  "Or they are believing the Cardinals can win outright.  Consider that 7 point line insurance."

Down and out for decades, the Arizona Cardinals have turned a bad joke into a Super Bowl-bound team.

Yes, the Cardinals, founding members of the NFL, but historically among the most dysfunctional of franchises, are heading for the championship game in Tampa.

Capitalizing on Larry Fitzgerald's three first-half touchdown receptions, then coolly marching downfield to Kurt Warner's 8-yard scoring pass to rookie Tim Hightower with 2:53 left, they beat the Philadelphia Eagles 32-25 Sunday for the NFC championship.

"I want to say Arizona Cardinals and Super Bowl in the same sentence," a jubilant Warner said. "The Arizona Cardinals in the Super Bowl. How about it?"

Arizona (12-7) will face AFC champion Pittsburgh in two weeks in Tampa for the NFL title.
