    Any Super Bowl betting player will tell you that the most important player on the field is the quarterback, and that was highlighted during the divisional weekend as quarterback battles decided all four games. Here’s a look at the final four pivots looking to get to Dallas.

    Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh

    Roethlisberger’s quest for a third Super Bowl ring looked in trouble as the Steelers were down 21-7 at the half, but he fought off a fierce Baltimore pass rush and made some massive plays in a 31-24 win over the Ravens at home. Roethlisberger isn’t the best technical pivot, and he sometimes holds onto the ball for too long, but any online horse betting player will tell you, it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish, and there aren’t many quarterbacks you want leading your team in the late stages of the game than Roethlisberger.

    Mark Sanchez, New York Jets

    Sanchez didn’t play great at Indianapolis, but made some big throws late to beat the Colts in the first round. Then, he thoroughly outplayed New England’s Tom Brady in a 28-21 upset of the Patriots, throwing three touchdowns with no picks. It may not be pretty, but Sanchez is now in the AFC title game for the second time in his two-year career, and yes, he does have a great defense behind him that played out of their minds in New England, Sanchez made more big throws. He seems to get better the brighter the spotlight is, but his lack of consistency is worrying.

    Jay Cutler, Chicago

    Consistency has always been a worry with Cutler under center, and he can throw three touchdowns with no picks as quickly as he can throw no scores with three picks. But he played extremely well in making sure the Bears were the correct NFL pick for sports betting in a 35-24 win over Seattle, and it was even more impressive considering it was his first postseason game of any sort since high school. When you give Cutler time, he’s as good as anyone in the league, but he has to have that time in the pocket.

    Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay

    Rodgers was on another planet in the Packers’ 48-21 rout in Atlanta, going 31-of-36 for 366 yards with three touchdowns and no picks, and given the stakes, it was probably the best quarterback performance of the season. At one point, it looked like the Packers were just out there having practice, and Atlantsa had no answer for them, on underneath routes or going deep. Rodgers also ran for a touchdown, and probably has the most mobility out of these four outside of Roethlisberger. He has definitely been the best quarterback of the playoffs so far, and the main reason the Packers are now the online sports betting favorites for the Super Bowl.
