My pick: The Steelers defense will control the game and their offense will make some big plays and they will win 27-14.
I asked several current and former soap stars to weigh in on the big game and they were pretty evenly split. Here's what they had to say:
Jake Silbermann (Noah, AS THE WORLD TURNS): "I pick the Cards, at the very least to cover the spread." The Steelers are currently favored by 6.5 points.
Mark Pinter (Thomas, GENERAL HOSPITAL; ex-Grant, ANOTHER WORLD; ex-Brian, AS THE WORLD TURNS, et al): "I have to go with the Steelers...all the way, baby!"
Colleen Broomall (Kennedy, SCRIPTS & SCRUPLES; ex-Dani, AS THE WORLD TURNS): "I think the Cardinals will take it by three!! As a die-hard Jets fan, my hopes for the Super Bowl have been tarnished for some time now, but I predict the Cardinals will take it by a narrow margin!"
Laura Bonarrigo (Rebecca, ALL MY CHILDREN; ex-Cassie, ONE LIFE TO LIVE): "Steelers."
Christopher Knight (ex-Leigh, ANOTHER WORLD): "Arizona, 23-19. A banged-up Steelers team finds out the Cards are wolves in, well ... Cardinal costumes."
Billy Magnussen (Casey, AS THE WORLD TURNS): "Steelers."
Steve Schirripa (Leo, THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER): Arizona, 31-20. Arizona will win and be able to beat the blitz because of Warner's quick release and their talented wide receivers.
Anne Sayre (Teri, SCRIPTS & SCRUPLES; ex-Mitzi, AS THE WORLD TURNS): "Cardinals." But Sayre is more interested in the commercials. She is hosting her 11th annual Super Bowl commercials party today.
Karl Girolamo (Kevin, AS THE WORLD TURNS): "I want Arizona to win because the Steelers already won five super bowls."
Connie Britton (Tami, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS): "The Dillon Panthers!"
Not everyone is into the big game. A rep for one of my favorite actresses, Linda Dano, told me: "Football isn't her thing. She predicts that it's almost as much fun getting together with friends on a cold snowy day in Connecticut and having great food and wine. Her second choice would be curled up with Mo (her Lhasa) and watching a MONK marathon or old movies." I recommended Puppy Bowl V on Animal Planet today at 3pm ET.
When I asked the fabulous Catherine Hickland (Lindsay, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; ex-Julie, CAPITOL, et al) for her prediction, she replied: "Football?? Me?? LOLOLOL!" Her wonderful "Conscious Loving Radio" program will be airing a new episode during the game so if you're looking for alternative programming, check it out.
