Previewing The Betting Odds For The Steelers 2021 Season

  • The Steelers have +4000 odds to win the Super Bowl in 2022.
  • Their biggest addition in the offseason was first round RB Najee Harris.

PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Steelers started out the 2020 season 11-0, and collapsed down the end, culminating in a Wild Card playoff loss to the Cleveland Browns, who dropped 48 points on them.

The Steelers were led by their defense in 2020, which gave up the 3rd fewest points per game over the course of the season. As the team with the most passing attempts in the NFL, they looked to fill a gap at RB in the offseason.

Pittsburgh Steelers Offseason Additions

  • RB Najee Harris
  • TE Pat Friermuth
  • S Miles Killebrew
  • OT Joe Haeg
  • C BJ Finney
  • G Rashaad Coward
  • RB Kalen Ballage
  • CB Arthur Maulet
  • DE Abdullah Anderson
  • QB Dwayne Haskins

The Steelers added RB Najee Harris in the 2021 NFL Draft. Harris, a quick, large RB out of Alabama, looks to be the total package at the NFL level. He can run the ball well, catch passes out of the backfield, and has great vision and explosiveness that should allow him to break plays.

Time will tell if the defense can regain its form from the first half of 2020, but the NFL betting sites seem pessimistic about the outlook of the Steelers in 2021.
