    If this years SB took place in last years location,would the Cards be the favorite over Pittsburgh since they would have been playing on thier home field?

    I think it definately would have closed the gap in terms of points spreads at least.

    Prolly not-remember it's not exactly Vegas that initially decides the point spreads, it's the BETTERS that put up the money in these initial stages.

    Pt being that home field or not, most everyone's perceptions would still believe that the Steelers WOULD have been the better team, regardless. Remember 2 weeks ago the Eagles were favored to beat the Cards(and pretty much everyone, like ourselves, thought Philly would cakewalk through that game), DESPITE it being played in Zona.

    I'm pretty sure if tomorrow's game was at Arizona there would still be about as many if not more Steeler fans than Cards fans.

    With the way ticket distributions work, and the rabidness of Steelers fans, I think playing in their home stadium would have gotten them a 50/50 fan split AT BEST. If you're using this year's teams as a basis, the spread would have been either the same, or maybe a half point adjustment at most.

    Being the home team is usually worth 3 points in terms of the lines, so no.
