There were certainly a couple of upsets last week and now the Final Four are left to battle for Football’s Holy Grail. Surprisingly, one of the last teams to qualify for the post season is the Betting Favorite to win it all and justifiably so!
Below is a breakdown of the four teams left, their Odds to win it all and why they should or shouldn’t be victorious in Dallas.
Green Bay Packers +175
There is absolutely no doubt who the favorite to hoist the Lombardi Trophy is now. With only four teams left, the Green Bay Packers will play their third straight playoff road game in Chicago for the honor of representing the NFC in the Super Bowl on Dallas! Despite being one of the last teams to qualify for the playoffs, Green Bay has impressively dismantled their competition in two of the tougher buildings in the NFL to win – the latest being a 48-21 beat down of Atlanta at the Georgia dome in a game that the starters were able to sit the majority of the fourth quarter.
Aaron Rodgers is clearly the most reliable pivot left in the NFL playoffs. Last week, he possibly had his best game as a Packer completing 31 of 36 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns. Green Bay’s defense allowed only 194 yards of total offense. The whole team is peaking at precisely the right time making them the smart money to be victorious in Dallas.
Pittsburgh Steelers +200
If you subscribe to the notion that defense wins championships, the Steelers may be your team. They are in a great position to succeed now that the Patriots and the Falcons have been eliminated. The fact is that the Steelers manhandled the Ravens last week. Although the final score was close, consider the fact that Pittsburgh only gave up 126 yards of total offense last week. They dominated and now get to face a team that they match up very well with. Pittsburgh should be able to score on the Jets defense (Rex Ryan and the boys may have blown their load last week against the Patriots). But will the Jets be able to score on the Steelers?
Anything can happen when you have Ben Roethlisberger behind center – ANYTHING! He is definitely the best Big Game quarterback left in the playoffs and with a defense like the Steelers have; Pittsburgh could easily be there in the end.
New York Jets +350
Do ya like the underdog? The Jets are the quintessential “Dog with bite” in this post season. Not only have they done what they said they were going to do, but they have done so against two of the best quarterbacks in the history of the NFL! Am I impressed? Yes! Do I trust the Jets to be the last team standing – No!
New York’s offensive troubles and defensive issues appear on the surface to be a thing of the past but problems don’t right themselves over night. Rex Ryan and the Jets coaching staff did a masterful job in scheming against two powerful offenses but they have yet to come up against an elite defense in the playoffs. Mark Sanchez has been relatively untested – let’s see what happens when his is harassed, bullied and completely taken off his game. I am not a believer – I think the Jets run ends this weekend – I can’t justify betting on them to win it all!
Chicago Bears +450
The Chicago Bears deserve a little more respect don`t you think? If Chicago was facing the NY Jets this weekend, the odds might be slanted slightly more in favor of the Bears. But the fact that they are facing the uber-hot Packers has them slight underdog. Hell, they are home dogs this weekend! Chicago has had two very tough games versus the Packers this season and in neither game did Jay Cutler show the poise and confidence that he showed last week against the Hawks. I know that it was just the Hawks, but Cutler passed for two scores and ran for two others.
With a confident quarterback, a solid offensive line, a more than competent running game and most importantly a defense that has terrorized all season long, the Bears, if they can put it all together have an OK chance to win this week. If they get by the Packers, the Bears match up well with a Jets team that they have already beaten and a Steelers team that is beatable as well.
