Seven days to go until the biggest sporting event of the year

| 31.01.2011

On Sunday 111,000 people will fill the Cowboys Stadium, 106 million people will be glued to their televisions, and money will be pouring into the betting markets from punters all over the world.

Super Bowl XLV is just days away and for new customers looking to place a Super Bowl bet, there couldn’t be a better time to do so.

Whether you’re a Green Bay Packers backer, or a Pittsburgh Steelers punter, new customers can sign up here for a free Super Bowl XLV bet worth £25.

The Packers are the favourites for the Super Bowl and can be backed on the money line at 2/3, while the Steelers are available at 13/10 to beat the Packers.

In the handicap betting, the Steelers can be backed at 5/6 to win with a three point advantage, and with both sides placing a lot of emphasis on their defensive lines, we could be in for a tight game on Sunday night.

The point spread is set at 44.5 and less than 44.5 points looks the pick at 10/11.

This will be the Steelers third appearance in a Super Bowl in the last six years and having won their previous two, they will be looking for a hat-trick.

But a Steelers win would prove unpopular for the neutrals considering the behaviour of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and with the support of the neutrals cheering the Packers on, Mike McCarthy’s side can triumph.

The Packers are favoured to win by between 1-6 points at 7/2 and is a tempting price, but backing both teams to win by 1-6 points could prove fruitful and the Steelers are 4/1 to do so.

Super Bowl XLV will be one of the hottest betting markets of the year and punters should look to take full advantage.

A £25 stake on Packers winning the Super Bowl -3 points would return £50. New customers can sign up here for a free bet worth £25.
