Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Odds 2022

Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Odds 2022

Of all the teams in the playoffs, this team is the least likely to not only win the Super Bowl, but also advance past the first round of the playoffs. DraftKings has them at +9000 to win the Super Bowl. First of all, the fact that they are even in the playoffs is a miracle in itself. Their destiny wasn’t in their own hands going into their last regular season game and having to bank on the Colts losing to the Jaguars isn’t exactly grounds for a happy ending. But apparently, luck is on their side in 2022 because here they are.

Pittsburgh Steelers Team Future Odds

    • To Win AFC:

The Steelers take on the Chiefs to kick off the postseason which won’t be an easy start, or finish for that matter. Even though Big Ben has led the Steelers to wins in three of their last four games heading into the first round, their one loss was to the Chiefs, and they looked terrible. Simply put, this year’s Steelers team is just not a playoff-caliber team, let alone a Super Bowl tea

Roethlisberger doesn’t necessarily disagree, he revealed in a press conference this week. “As a group, you understand that we probably aren’t supposed to be here. We’re probably not a very good football team. Out of 14 teams I think are in, we’re probably number 14. We’re a double-digit underdog in the playoffs…we don’t have a chance, so let’s just go in and have fun,” Roethlisberger said. 

Their offense has been the crux of their problems this year. They average 20.2 points per game compared to the 23.4 points per game that they give up on defense and average just 315.4 yards of total offense per game. Big Ben has a QBR of 35.8 this year which gives him the second-worst QBR of any starting quarterback to make the playoffs in this century. They don’t have much of a ground game either despite the efforts of Najee Harris who leads their rushing attack. All roads lead to a stumbling offensive line that have allowed 38 sacks on Roethlisberger and put the Steelers in 31st place in yards before contact per carry. 

This defense is what has put the wins in the win column for this team this year. They led the league in sacks in the regular season and have one of the best pass rushers in league history – T.J. Watt. However they give up more rushing yards and rushing yards per carry than any other team in the league. Between that and what they cannot accomplish offensively, they very likely won’t make it past the first round. If somehow their luck knocks out the Chiefs, they might have the Titans to worry about which is equally as threatening. 

Realistically, Big Ben is likely putting on his uniform for the very last time in this game and passing the offensive torch along. In a perfect world, he would end his career with a Lombardi trophy in hand, but the world isn’t perfect, and he won’t be doing that.
