PITTSBURGH @ GREEN BAY (-3)
What wins championships in football? Defense, a leader behind center, GREAT coaching, experience, and heart.
Compare the two teams:
Both have solid defenses.
Both have their leader behind center.
The Steelers have Tomlin who has proved to be a great coach, however, Mike McCarthy is not considered a "great" coach throughout the NFL. Do not get me wrong with that statement. McCarthy is a very good coach, a super bowl win today would make him a great coach, but he is a very good coach that prepares very well for games.
Both teams have heart, but I lean towards Pittsburgh here as the have the older, more experienced veterans on the defensive side of the ball and, oh yeah, that one guy split out to Big Ben's right (Hines Ward).
This should be a great game. Vegas has the wrong team favored in my opinion, but needless to say even if Pitt was giving the points I would still have no hesitation taking them.
MY PRESEASON SUPERBOWL MATCHUP was GREEN BAY vs PITTSBURGH! I have had this right since day 1, and since day 1 I have had the Steelers winning the big game. And it will not change today. Timmons or Woodley will come up with a sack fumble that changes the momentum of this game dramatically, and the Steelers win a classic grind out football game. Big Ben plays well, Timmons is my MVP pick, and Big Ben gets another ring.
