The article presents predictions made by sports gambler Brandon Lang about trends in the Super Bowl football tournament. He feels that the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense is playing on a level he doesn't think the Seattle Seahawks have seen yet. If Seattle didn't have home-field advantage, one would be sure they'd be in the Super Bowl. People should also be beware of the hype, since most of the time, people bet on what they just saw. The public is buying into the hype of how the Seattle Seahawks beat the Carolina Panthers. But the smart money is on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
