Super Bowl 2012 Odds: Steelers At 11:1

With the NFL playoff field set, here are the 2012 Super Bowl odds, courtesy of Bovada. The Steelers are at 11:1, which sounds about right, since they'll have a tough road - not so much in their Wild Card game against the Denver Broncos, but after that. Assuming they win in the first round, they're guaranteed to have to face either the New England Patriots or Baltimore Ravens on the road. Then, assuming they win, comes the AFC championship game, in which they might well have to face the other of those teams, also on the road. Then would be the Super Bowl against the Packers or another tough NFC team. (Bovada gives a generic NFC opponent a 4.5-point edge on a generic AFC team.) That's a rough path, especially for a team that just lost its starting running back.
