THERE might be no cheerleaders at Super Bowl XLV (45 to us Brits) but there should be plenty to cheer.

Green Bay Packers head into the clash as 20-29 favourites with Paddy Power to beat Pittsburgh Steelers, the most successful team in history, but 13-10 outsiders with the likes of William Hill and Ladbrokes for a seventh win.

Packers get the nod because of outstanding play-off form that saw them beat the top three NFL seeds – Philadelphia, Atlanta and Chicago.

QP Aaron Rodgers has a great passing game and is a strong runner and his display is likely to shape the outcome of the contest.

However, it's not expected to easy and it promises to be a tight, low-scoring contest. The most likely result is a Packers win by no more than six points. Packers are 1-1 with Ladbrokes minus three points and that's how close it is.

You can also have 10-11 with Paddy Power on under 44.5 points in the match which looks a shout.

Clean-cut Rodgers is 11-8 with Paddy Power land the MVP award with Pittsburgh’s rough and ready QB Ben Roethlisberger 11-4.

It being the Super Bowl there are more novelty bets on offer than usual. Bodog are asking how long it will take Christina Aguilera to sing the national anthem before kick-off.

Aguilera is likely to milk the moment and won't be off in a hurry so I'd take over one minute and 50 seconds at bodog.

Paddy Power offer 9-1 it takes her 135 seconds or more to get out the final line “land of the free and home of the brave”.
