Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Odds

Pittsburgh Steelers Betting Odds. After winning Super Bowl XL, not a lot went right last season for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Despite all the issues, they still managed 8 wins and have too much talent to be counted out. Sportsbook.com has posted the Pittsburgh Steelers betting odds to win Super Bowl XLII at 25 to 1.

“This team is as talented as almost anyone but QB Big Ben must return to form for them to win the ultra competitive AFC North,” stated Point-Spreads.com NFL Handicapper Brad Marchetti. “This team could be a sleeper pick and I like the betting odds on the over for the season wins total.” {MORE Steelers Odds-Click READ MORE Below}

Coming off a season where they went 8-8, it is hard to figure out what to expect from the Steelers this season. The fact remains, very little went right last season yet they still finished at the .500 mark and they have plenty of talent on both sides of the ball. With and uneventful off-season, Ben Roethlisberger is primed for a big season. “Big Ben” has a very capable trio he will be throwing to.

Veteran Hines Ward began to show some signs of slowing last season but is still a very effective target. WR Santonio Holmes came on strong late in the season and don’t be surprised if he puts up bigger numbers than Ward. TE Heath Miller had 5 scores and should have an increased role this season as well. RB Willie Parker ran for 1494 yards and 13 scores last season and is a threat to go score every time he touches the ball.

The defensive line doesn’t put up huge numbers but they are the key to the Steelers 3-4 defense. NT Casey Hampton is a dominant run stopper while DE Aaron Smith is extremely underrated. It appears as if rookie LaMarr Woodley will fill the shoes of Joey Porter whose play dropped off last season and was subsequently released. Veterans Larry Foote, Clark Haggans and James Farrior also return so the LB unit should be rock solid.

The secondary is once again headed by the hard hitting Troy Polamalu. Corner Ike Taylor struggled last season after signing a huge contract. If he can return to his 2005 form, it would give the secondary and defense a huge boost.
