Getting Ready for Super Bowl XL

Traditionally, Super Bowl week is one of the busiest times for online casinos and this year is no exception. The betting frenzy has captured the hearts and minds of players from all over the world, who visited in record numbers in order to place wagers on

Super Bowl XL is scheduled to take place today, February 5th at Ford Field in Detroit Michigan. In what odds makers expect to be an epic battle, the two teams that will be squaring off tonight are the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Seattle Seahawks.

The two teams have taken two completely different routes to the Super Bowl. The Seahawks had home court advantage throughout the playoffs, while the Steelers didn't. Pittsburgh had to win three games on the road, which is something that has never been done in the history of the NFL. No team in the history of the NFL has won three straight playoff games on the road, which is why odds makers went with the Broncos when the two teams met in the mile high city, where the Steelers captured their Super Bowl birth.

After labeling them as the underdogs in their last two games against Indianapolis and Denver, the Steelers have finally made believers out of odds makers. Pittsburgh is the favorite to win tonight's game with most online casino sites setting the point spread to 4.5 points in favor of the Steelers. Will they be able to cover the spread? Your guess is as good as mine. However, after they beat the Colts who were favored to win it all, it seems that the Steelers are a team of destiny.
