Super Bowl XLIII Pick Against the Spread

Posted by in NFL Picks on January 30th, 2009 | 3 Comments


I’m pretty down since my Eagles lost to the Cardinals in the NFC Championship, so my interest in the Super Bowl has declined immensely.  By no means did the Eagles choke.  Unfortunately they came out flat in the first half, but they got it together in the second half.  If they would have played both halves the way they played the second half, they could be playing in the big game in Tampa.  There’s still a lack of respect for the Cardinals due to their 9-7 regular season record.  Do not underestimate them.  Larry Fitzgerald is the most dangerous player in this game.  He has the ability to win games himself.  3 TDs last week against the Eagles.  He is virtually unstoppable as long as the offensive line can give Warner enough time.

Last Super Bowl, I said take the points with the Giants and this year I think taking the points may be the way to go.  I’m thinking that Pittsburgh will more than likely win this game, but that the Cardinals will more than likely cover. I’m pulling for the Cardinals since I hate Pittsburgh, so that’s influencing my pick.  I hate the Steelers, so yeah, there’s some bias here.  The Steelers should win this one by 3-4 points, but I wouldn’t be surprised one bit by a Cardinals victory.  If they do, look for one man to dominate: Larry Fitzgerald.

Also keep in mind that Big Ben is playing banged up, but that shouldn’t affect his game.

Prediction: Cardinals 27 – Steelers 24

Disclaimer: This pick is 100% bias.

    Yup, DeAngelo. The former kickoff returning studd doesn’t play for the Redskins. Those things happen when you type 2,000 words.
