Kick-off for the 2011 Super Bowl is now less than twenty-four hours away and although those in Texas for the Steelers vs Packers game might be freezing due to the weather; the NFL betting action is heating up at Vegas sportsbooks. 2011 Super Bowl odds have listed the Packers as -2.5 NFL betting favorites vs the Steelers with an over/under betting total of 44.5. Green Bay is also favored -140 in money line Super Bowl odds while Pittsburgh would return +120 on a $100 wager. The Pittsburgh Steelers reached Super Sunday by finishing the season with a record of 12-4 and then continued to win the AFC conference with demanding wins over the Ravens and Jets.

The Green Bay Packers went 10-6 straight up on the season with road wins over the Eagles, Falcons and Bears to win the NFC conference. The Packers are favored by nearly a field goal in 2011 Super Bowl odds but for those die-hard gamblers, Vegas sportsbooks are also offering a Steelers vs Packers alternative line which offers slightly better returns for the outcome. For example, Green Bay on the standard point spread is -3 but if you think the Packers will have a demanding win, you could take the cheeseheads -7.5 (+175) on the alternative line while the Steelers would still be underdogs at +7.5 (-225) with a total of 28.5 OVER (-700) and UNDER (+400).

Not many Vegas sportsbooks think the game will be a blow out in 2011 Super Bowl odds but alternative lines for the Steelers vs Packers are offering great value if Sunday happens to become a lopsided victory. Taking the Packers -10.5 would return +250 while the Steelers +10.5 would cost -400 with an over/under of 31.5 OVER -500 and UNDER +325.Think quarterback Aaron Rodgers will lead his team to more than a two touchdown victory in his first championship? Alternative 2011 Super Bowl odds have Green Bay -14.5 (+425) with Pittsburgh +14.5 (-800) with an over/under of 34.5 OVER (-400) and UNDER (+250). A Packers blow-out would return the best NFL betting value with Green Bay -17.5 (+550), Pittsburgh +17.5 (-1200) and a total of 38.5 OVER (-275) and UNDER (+190).

Don’t worry Steeler Nation, the alternative lines in 2011 Super Bowl odds haven’t forgotten about you. Since Vegas sportsbooks are predicting a Packers win, those waiving their terrible towels on Sunday could make out like bandits in alternative NFL betting lines with a Pittsburgh victory. Taking the Steeler as 4.5-point favorites would return +185 while the Packers +4.5 would cost (-250) with the total at 49.5 UNDER (-200) and OVER (+150). Think Big Ben will be able to limit his turnovers and win the Steelers vs Packers match-up by more than a touchdown? 2011 Super Bowl odds have the Steelers -7.5 (+250) in alternative lines while taking Pittsburgh -10.5 would return +350 and -14.5 (+450).
