Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Odds | Preseason

The Pittsburgh Steelers started out the 2020-2021 season with an 11-0 record and dominating defense but fell apart down the stretch, losing four of their last five games. Pittsburgh was upset at home in the Wild Card Playoff, getting shocked by divisional rival Cleveland.

What looked like a Super Bowl-caliber team at one point turned into a total pretender come the postseason. Despite the Steelers’ late-season collapse, their twelve-win season was the best they’d had since they went 13-3 in 2017.

If you placed a bet on the Steelers last season, Pittsburgh went 10-6 against the spread. On over/unders, the Black and Yellow covered the over eight times.

The Steelers addressed their running-back situation by selecting Najee Harris at the draft, who was a star at Alabama. Look for Pittsburgh to be a big run-first team this season, with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger nearing retirement. The Steelers still have really good receiving weapons in Juju-Smith Schuster and Chase Claypool, but Roethlisberger is no longer at the point in his career where he can drop back and be a constant gunslinger.

Longtime All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey retired in the offseason. Right guard David DeCastro was released by Pittsburgh in June, and right tackle Alejandro Villanueva joined the rival Ravens. Even with these veteran losses, the Steelers still remain with enough depth up front for Harris to flourish in his rookie season.

Defensively, Pittsburgh lost edge rusher Bud Dupree to free agency, but replaced him with three-time Pro Bowler Melvin Ingram. The Black and Yellow also added linebacker Joe Schobert from Jacksonville. Corners Steven Nelson and Mike Hilton both agreed to deals elsewhere.

Action 247 Sportsbook has the Steelers over/under for wins this season set at 8.5. Pittsburgh is +375 to win the AFC North behind Baltimore and Cleveland and are +3900 to win Super Bowl 56.
