Pittsburgh Steelers Odds

Written by

The Pittsburgh Steelers backed into the playoffs last season and were quickly eliminated with a blowout loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. As training camp continues and the team looks ahead to the preseason opener vs. the Seattle Seahawks, the franchise has started a time of transition following the retirement of Ben Roethlisberger.

The chances of a return to the postseason appear to be slim, at least according to the latest NFL futures odds. Pittsburgh opens the season on the road in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals as a sizable underdog. Here’s a closer look at the latest Steelers betting odds and angles.

Pittsburgh Steelers odds: Spread, moneyline and over/under

NFL Preseason Week 1: Steelers open exhibition season at home vs. Seahawks

The Steelers open up the preseason at home at what’s now known as Acrisure Stadium. The Seattle Seahawks come to town on Saturday, Aug. 13 with game time set for 7 p.m. ET.

The QBs will be a big focus for Pittsburgh’s preseason, but we’ll have to wait and see how playing time shakes out for the opener. The early betting odds have the team installed as a home favorite.

  • Moneyline: The Steelers opened as -150 favorites on the moneyline, but the odds have since moved to Pittsburgh -170 with the Seahawks at +145.
  • Spread: Oddsmakers set Pittsburgh as a -3-point favorite for the preseason opener. The spread has ticked up slightly to Steelers -3.5 (-110(.
  • Over/Under: The initial over/under was on the light side at 33.5, but the total has increased to 37.

Week 1 odds: Steelers 6.5-point road underdogs vs. rival Bengals

It’s a meeting of two AFC North rivals that each earned playoff berths a season ago. The 9-7-1 Steelers were one and done in the postseason, while the 10-7 Bengals made a run to the Super Bowl before losing a close one to the Los Angeles Rams.

For the upcoming season, futures odds are predicting that Cincinnati will once again be a contender. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh is projected to finish at the back of the pack in the division chase.

  • Moneyline: Oddsmakers initially set Pittsburgh as +200 moneyline underdogs against Cincinnati for Week 1. The number has since shifted to Steelers +230 and Cincinnati -275. The Bengals got the better of the Steelers twice last year. The Steelers were 3-5 on the road last season, while Cincinnati was 5-4 at home.
  • Spread: The Steelers opened as one of the bigger underdogs on the NFL Week 1 slate (+6.5). Pittsburgh was 8-10 against the spread last year, while Cincinnati was 14-7.
  • Over/Under: The current total lines for the Week 1 NFL schedule range from a low of 41 to a high of 53, so this tilt falls a bit below the middle at 44.5. The Steelers averaged 20.2 points per game last season, while the Bengals posted 27.1.

Steelers odds to win 2023 Super Bowl

Last Updated: August 12

In January, DraftKings unveiled odds for the winner of the 2023 Super Bowl. At the time, the Steelers were in the middle of the pack at +5000. The team has since dropped down the board to current odds of +9000.

For perspective, Pittsburgh is currently 23rd out of 32 teams on the DraftKings Super Bowl odds board, and one of the last four options on the AFC side. The current favorites to win the next big game are the Buffalo Bills (+600) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+700).

If we look at other leading sportsbooks, Pittsburgh’s odds to win Super Bowl 57 are in the same ballpark:

The Steelers aren’t being viewed as a realistic Super Bowl contender this season, but there’s still some intrigue for the team in the rest of the NFL futures market. You can bet on the club’s regular-season win total and more. Here are the current betting lines for Pittsburgh in other top categories.

Regular season win total

DraftKings Sportsbook: Over 7 (-125) / Under 7 (+105)

The Steelers were a nine-win team last season, but DraftKings is expecting a step backward. The betting public appears to agree, as the odds are currently positive on the club to go over that amount.

Odds to win the AFC North

BetMGM Sportsbook: +900

The AFC North shapes up to be very competitive this season, but BetMGM gives the Steelers the longest odds to take the division. The Baltimore Ravens are favored at +150, followed by the Cincinnati Bengals at +185 and the Cleveland Browns at +300.

Odds to win the AFC

Caesars Sportsbook: +4000

The Steelers are also toward the bottom in odds to win the AFC. They’re currently ahead of just three other teams: the Jacksonville Jaguars (+6000), New York Jets (+8000), and Houston Texans (+12500). The Bills (+350) are the favorites, followed by the Chiefs (+500).

Mitchell Trubisky NFL MVP odds

FanDuel Sportsbook: +7500

Trubisky projects as the Week 1 starter in Pittsburgh. The former first-round draft pick for the Chicago Bears spent last season as a backup for the Bills. He’s pretty far down the list of NFL MVP odds. Josh Allen (+700) is the current favorite to win.

Season-long player prop odds

DraftKings Sportsbook:

  • Most passing yards: Mitchell Trubisky +6000
  • Most rushing yards: Najee Harris +1400
  • Most receiving yards: Diontae Johnson +4000

While expectations aren’t too high for the Steelers’ offense, Harris is the fifth option on the board for rushing yards at DraftKings. Trubisky and Johnson are risky choices to lead the way for what could be a run-heavy attack.

Latest news and updates

As expected, Ben Roethlisberger officially retired at the conclusion of last season. The team signed Mitchell Trubisky in free agency to help fill the void. Additional signings included James Daniels, Myles Jack, and Mason Cole, while JuJu Smith-Schuster is among the players who have moved on from Pittsburgh.

At the NFL draft, the Steelers landed a potential signal-caller of the future by selecting Kenny Pickett in the first round, followed by WR George Pickens in round two. Through 15 seasons as head coach in Pittsburgh, Mike Tomlin has never posted a record under .500. Current expectations for the team suggest that the streak is in jeopardy.
