Steelers vs Cardinals Super Bowl

The Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers are heading to the 2009 Super Bowl.  The Cardinals/Steelers Super Bowl line was expected to be Pittsburgh -7 to -7 ½, though was awaiting the official line release. SBG Global was posting its 2009 Super Bowl line during the overnight hours.

Heading into Sunday's Conference Championship games (beginning at 3 pm EST), the Steelers were the favorite to win the 2009 Super Bowl.   They were a near even favorite (+135 or a $100 bet would pay $135).

The Cardinals were the biggest underdog of the four teams playing Sunday.  If Arizona happened to win the 2009 Super Bowl, the payout would be $712 for every $100 bet.

The Steelers defeated the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night following a costly turnover by Baltimore in the final minutes.

For the Cardinals, it is the first time they will be appearing in a Super Bowl game.

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?"

Gamblers will have hundreds of betting opportunities for this year's Super Bowl including a huge menu of player and event props.
