Super Bowl betting often comes down to which team has the better or more effective quarterback when judging the final results of a game with the NFL odds.
Super Bowl betting saw right from the beginning that a near perfect quarterback such as Bart Starr of the Green Bay Packers could make all of the difference with the NFL odds. Starr’s near flawless performance in the first two Super Bowls set the standard for quarterbacks to this very day.
In recent years Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Eli Manning of the New York Giants, Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts, Kurt Warner of the Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams, and John Elway of the Denver Broncos have all made the ultimate difference in beating the NFL odds.
In this year’s matchup we have Peyton and his Colts going up against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints to make for one of the best quarterbacking matchups in the history of the Super Bowl Odds.
With Manning or Brees we have a choice of quarterbacks that will rank among the very best that have ever taken the field on Super Sunday. Perhaps the best and most recent comparison of such a matchup would be two years ago when Peyton’s brother Eli led the Giants to a 17-14 upset win over Brady’s Patriots.
