Steelers Win 3 In A Row, Super Bowl LVI Odds Shorten

  • The Pittsburgh Steelers have won three straight games.
  • The Steelers Super Bowl odds have shortened from +10000 to +6500.

PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Steelers have been quietly inching their Super Bowl odds shorter and shorter each week.

After their third win in a row in Week 8, their Super Bowl odds have shorted tremendously from +10000 to +6500. With such as big shift, it is time to take their odds seriously.

Big Ben Turning Things Around

One of the major reasons behind the Steelers Super Bowl odds starting to push their way forward is the emergence of Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger got off to a slow start to his season having posted 1,033 passing yards, 4 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions at a 64% completion rate and 78.9 QBR.

In the Steelers past three wins, vintage Roethlisberger has come to play. Big Ben has gone for 748 passing yards, 4 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions at a 66.6 % completion rate and 102.6 QBR.

Defense Holding Their Own

While the offense is still churning away, the Steelers defense has been holding still all season. They are currently in the top-10 in points allowed per game (20.3), and are in the top-15 in both rushing (106.0) and passing yards (239.7) allowed as well.

On the Steelers defense is one of the best pass rushers in the league in T.J. Watt. Watt is second in the league in sacks this season with 8.5. The Steelers defense as a whole is top-10 in sacks this season with 19.

Smooth Sailing

One more reason to back the Steelers odds sooner rather than later is their remaining schedule this season. The Steelers remaining opponents have a combined record of 38-37.

Five of their remaining 10 opponents also have a .500 record or worse.

With that, as long as Roethlisberger continues to turn back the clock and the Steelers defense continues their dominance against below-average opponents, their Super Bowl LVI odds could be some of the most valuable this season.
