It promises to be an defensive match up as the Green Bay Packers take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unibet have Green Bay as the 1.65 favs as they ride a massive wave of momentum. They have not had an easy route to the final, having to beat the top 3 seeds in the NFC (Philadelphia, Atlanta and Chicago).
Why have a team ranked number 6 in the NFC become so dominant in the postseason? Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has always had a great passing game, has developed an excellent running game, making it extremely tough for defences. Combine that with rookie candidate James Starks and you have a great combination. Starks hardly played in the regular season but has been the difference in all 3 playoff games.
That’s not to say Pittsburgh’s offence can’t be as destructive; Unibet have odds of 2.28 making them the underdogs. ‘Big’ Ben Roethlisberger is an artist who creates plays out of nothing, ignores the chosen sideline play, adapts and keeps everyone guessing.
This versatility and ability to adapt gives Pittsburgh an offence that is both effective and versatile. There are however question marks over the fitness of Pouncey, which could be an issue for Pittsburgh if he does not recover in time.
Green Bay has a depth of talent to choose from with strong linebackers, a tightness to pressurise the offence and a very fast, athletic line. The Steelers defence are no less the heavy hitters, but the discipline in the secondary line can lead to lapses in concentration and positional errors that Aaron Rodgers can exploit.
This is going to be a tight match and one you will not want to miss a moment of. Unibet have all the odds and of course Live Betting from the first down to the last.
