    Default Super Bowl outcome works for bookies

    Sunday's Super Bowl will go down as one of the best ever, and some bookmakers were quite pleased with the end result. The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals 26-23 but was unable to cover (the line ran from 6.5 to 7 depending on the bookie).

    From Gambling911:

    For online sportsbooks, nearly 80 percent of the money line action was on the Arizona Cardinals to win outright. Betting on the Pittsburgh/Arizona spread was relatively even but for many books, the amount of bets taken favored the Steelers.
    Hilton Sportsbook Director Jay Kornegay told the Las Vegas Review Journal that Pittsburgh's win was good for the book:

    "It was the best-case scenario for us to have the Steelers win and not cover."
