Pittsburgh Steelers Odds To Win The Super Bowl 2018
Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Odds
With the Big Three of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Antonio Brown back on the field, the Steelers are legitimate favorites not only to come out of the AFC, but to win the Super Bowl in 2018.
The problem will be for the club’s three superstars — along with receiver Martavias Bryant — to remain on the field through a full season. Whether it’s been due to injury or suspensions, Roethlisberger, Bell, Brown and Bryant have played just 21 snaps together in the past two seasons. Nonetheless, online sportsbooks are still putting the Steelers among the Super Bowl favorites entering the 2017-18 NFL campaign.
There are less than a handful of teams that can knock off the New England Patriots in the AFC and the Steelers are definitely one of them. As a +1200 favorite to win the Super Bowl in 2018, if all the pieces fall into place, the Steelers will not only come out of the AFC, but will also win the NFL title.
The Steelers are coming off an 11-5 season in which they won the AFC North ahead of the Baltimore Ravens. With the Cleveland Browns out of the race and the Cincinnati Bengals with problems of their own, expect the AFC North to once again be a two-team race between the Steelers and Ravens.
Can the Steelers repeat that 11-win season? BetOnline has set Pittsburgh’s projected win total at 10.5 — a mark the Steelers can surpass with their potent offense intact. Taking the over would pay -140 odds, while the under is pegged as the +120 underdog.
The Steelers could very well open the season with three straight victories as they open the 2017-18 schedule against the Browns, Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears. They’ll have a date with the Ravens in Week 4 before another winnable game in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Things get a little tough for Pittsburgh in Week 6 when they travel to Kansas City to face the Chiefs. However, if history is any indication, the Steelers should have no real issue against Kansas City. Roethlisberger owns a career 5-1 record against the Chiefs and the Steelers rolled to a 43-14 victory when the two teams clashed in 2016.Steelers Super Bowl Odds +1200
While the Steelers will enjoy a lighter schedule to start the season, the road to a Super Bowl will get much tougher by late November when they’ll take on the Green Bay Packers in Week 12 — a game that will be nationally televised. From there, the Steelers will face the Bengals, Ravens, Patriots and Texans.
Watch For Bell To Have Career Year
Le’Veon Bell is coming off an outstanding season, finishing fifth in rushing yards last year. There is room for improvement for Bell, who some believe is still the best running back in the NFL.
The Michigan State grad racked up 1,268 yards in 2016 and could very well shatter that mark when the Steelers kick off the season on Sept. 10. Bovada has Bell as the +325 odds-on favorite to record the most rushing yards. His biggest challenger will be Dallas Cowboys sophomore and defending rushing champion Ezekiel Elliott.
Bovada’s regular season MVP odds has Bell pegged at +1600 – the highest rated running back among favorites in the list. It’s a bet worth taking as the Steelers will ride Bell all season as the club looks to secure its spot in the Super Bowl.
