Sportsbooks For Pittsburgh Steelers

You could say that the Steelers are still doing it, only this time, they are doing it in different fashion. When the Steelers first rose to prominence as an NFL power in the early 1970s, they did so behind the backbone of perhaps the finest defense in NFL history, the mighty Steel Curtain, a unit that simply smothered opposing offenses and bludgeoned them into submission. In the 1974 AFC Championship Game, the Steelers limited the Raiders to 29 yards rushing and then checked the Minnesota Vikings on 17 yards rushing in the Super Bowl. [+]

The current edition of the Steelers is all about lighting it up. In 2015 the Steelers were the third-best offense in the NFL and the fifth-best passing offense. But they haven’t forgot what made them famous. The Steelers were also the fifth-best defense at stopping the run.

When you consider that it took the Pittsburgh Steelers 39 years as an NFL team just to make the playoffs, what they’ve accomplished since is quite impressive.

The Steelers won their first division title in 1972, winning the AFC Central and reaching the AFC Championship Game. It launched a run of eight straight years in the playoffs, a stretch that included four Super Bowl triumphs and a half-dozen apperances in the AFC Championship Game.

Pittsburgh has just kept on rolling, never going more than four years in succession without making a postseason appearance. Pittsburgh’s 15 AFC Championship Games are an NFL record, as are the Steelers’ 11 home championship games. The Steelers have won a record six Super Bowls and share the lead in Super Bowl appearances with eight. 

 Consistency is the keynote phrase for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 2016 NFL season will mark Kevin Colbert’s 17th in a row as general manager of the Steelers and Mike Tomlin’s 10th as head coach in Pittsburgh.

Tomlin is just the third head coach the Steelers have known since 1969. Prior to Tomlin, Bill Cowher was at the helm from 1992-2006, and before him, it was Chuck Noll from 1969-91. All three of them won the Super Bowl.

Over the same time frame, the Cincinnati Bengals have employed nine head coaches and the Cleveland Browns have utilized 18 head coaches. The Baltimore Ravens, only in existence since 1996, have also used three head coaches.

Here you go, the Pittsburgh Steelers game schedule is ready below for your perusal and the NFL schedule maker has thrown up more than a fair share of challenges at the Steelers. [+]

Besides the usual tough intra-divisional slate, including a Week Two home date with the Cincinnati Bengals that figures to be the game of the early season after last year’s wild wildcard playoff game between the two teams, there are plenty of contests that figure to hold the potential to trip up the Steelers.

Right off the bat Pittsburgh opens on the road at the defending NFC East champion Washington Redskins. Key home dates include visits from 2015 playoff teams the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots, as well as the 10-win New York Jets.

How To Make Money Betting On Pittsburgh Steelers

If the oddsmakers are right in their prognostications, the Steelers will be returning to the top of the heap in 2016.

Bovada has the Steelers as odds-on favorites to win the AFC North title at +130. BetOnline puts the Steelers at +135 to take the division crown, also the lowest odds of any team in the group. TopBet is the keenest of them all in how much they like the Steelers, listing them at +105 to wear the AFC North crown.

The Steelers have captured four AFC North titles since 2007, the most recent one in 2014.

As much as they like the Steelers to win the AFC North, sportsbooks aren’t as sold on the Steelers as Super Bowl contenders. BetOnline puts the Steelers as co-third choices to win Super Bowl LI along with the Green Bay Packers at +950. 

Bovada likes the Steelers as second choice to come out of the AFC at +525 and also along with the Packers as third choice to win the Super Bowl at +1000. TopBet likes the Steelers second-best to win the AFC Championship at +525 and puts them alone in third in odds of winning their seventh Super Bowl at +900.

It’s been said that the Steelers are just a secondary away from being primary Super Bowl candidates. Pittsburgh was 28th overall in the NFL in defending the pass in 2015 and will need to shore up that part of its game in order to get back to the big game.

Ask not for whom the bell tolls, because in Pittsburgh, it always rings for Big Ben. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger arrived in the NFL winning and he hasn’t stopped.

At 23, Roethlisberger was the youngest winning quarterback in Super Bowl history. He’s one of only six QBs in NFL history to post a win against at least 31 different teams. His .710 career winning percentage is fourth-best in NFL history among QBs with at least 100 career starts.

Roethlisberger is one of the NFL’s most effective passers. He rates ninth all-time in passer rating (94.0), and is tied for 10th all-time in completion percentage (63.85 per cent).
