Croy’s 2009 Super Bowl Predictions

25 Units, Take the Under 46.5, We are getting solid line value with this posted total Sunday since both defenses come into this game well rested. The Steelers defense has allowed an average of just 13.5 ppg on the road this season and just 238.2 ypg on the road. The Steelers defense has allowed an average of just 76 rypg this season and just 157 pypg on the road and I look for them to shut down this Cardinal offense. The Cardinals defense has looked a little better in their last couple of games with opponents averaging just 20.7 ppg against them and they have come up with some big plays. The Cardinals do not have a very solid running game averaging just 80 rypg this season and this will allow the Steelers defense to concentrate on shutting down the Cardinals passing game. The O/U is 0-4 in the Steelers last 4 non-conference games and 5-11 for the Cardinals when playing with 2 or more weeks rest. The last solid defense that the Cardinals offense has faced was the New England Patriots and they scored just 7 points against that defense while accumulating just 186 total yards. I look for the Super Bowl to go well under the posted total of 46.5 so take the Under as my NFL Playoff Total of the Year.
