Croy’s 2009 Super Bowl Picks

30 Units, Take Pittsburgh ATS, This Steelers defense is simply too solid not to hold this Cardinals offense under 14 points especially when the weather will not be a factor in Tampa. Injuries will not be a factor at all in this game since both WR-Hines Ward and S-Ryan Clark will both be ready to go for this game and the Steelers are a perfect 7-0 ATS in their last 7 NFL Playoff games. The Cardinals have been very lucky with turnovers over their last 3 games but that luck ends in Super Bowl XLIII against a Steelers team that does not turn the ball over often. Solid defensive play wins big games and the Steelers defense has allowed just 13.5 ppg on the road this season while allowing just 238.2 yards per game. The Cardinals defense is anything but solid with opponents averaging 29 ppg against them on the road this season while averaging 331.7 ypg and the Steelers who put up 23 points in their last game against a very stingy Ravens defense will be able to move the ball very efficiently in Super Bowl XLIII. The Pittsburgh Steelers out-scored their last 2 opponents by an average of 10 ppg and those 2 opponents would beat the Arizona Cardinals SU so take the Pittsburgh Steelers as my NFL Super Bowl Bookie Buster Platinum Play and thanks for joining me for another profitable NFL season. Good Luck & God Bless…Vernon Croy.
