Early betting odds have been released for Super Bowl XLV in Dallas and the Vegas odds-makers have the Green Bay Packers as a 2.5 point favorite over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Before Steelers fans get up in arms, this spread isn't necessarily bad news.

The team taking points into the game is 7-2 against the spread in the last nine Super Bowl match ups, including last year, when the New Orleans Saints (+4.5) upset the Indianapolis Colts, 31-17. On a side note, for those of us who bet for entertainment purposes only, the over/under opened at 45.5.

My money (surprise!) is on the Steelers, not only taking the points but winning out right. Let's go through fiver reasons why I think this is where the smart money is going to be.
