It isn't a surprise to me but at the same time seeing the Steelers almost a TD underdog always catches my eye.
Apr 22, 15, 01:47 PM #3They'll be missing their best player. Not surprising at all. Honestly, would've expected it to be slightly higher.
Apr 22, 15, 01:53 PM #4I will definitely be rooting for the Pats.

A big factor too is the opening game spread the Superbowl winning home teams always win by. That game is typically non-competitive with the defending champs so amped.
