Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Odds 2022

The curtain call for Big Ben Rothlisberger is quickly approaching, but it’s not happening this year. Rothlisberger is back with the Steelers for another year in what could become his Michael Jordan “Last Dance” type season. The Steelers were stumbling down the stretch last season before ultimately being embarrassed by the Browns in the playoffs. The Steelers still have one of the best defenses in the NFL, a stud rookie running back in Najee Harris to try and patch up the run game, and Mie Tomlin at the helm. The Steelers have never had a losing season under Tomlin, but this year could be his toughest yet with one of his weaker teams, an aging quarterback, and very stiff competition in the AFC.

Steelers Odds Analysis

The Steelers are seen as a middle-of-the-pack team in the eyes of the oddsmakers.

At anywhere between +4000 to +4500 odds to win the Super Bowl this season depending on your sportsbook, many see the Steelers as the 19th best team in the NFL this season. In the AFC, the Steelers have the 9th highest odds to win the Super Bowl behind the Chiefs, Bills, Browns, Ravens, Chargers, Colts, Patriots, and Dolphins, and in the AFC North, they have the 3rd highest odds behind the Browns and Ravens. The Steelers are going to be an interesting team to figure out because of all their turnover.

The nucleus of the team is still together as Rothlisberger, WR Juju Smith-Schuster, WR Chase Claypool, WR Diontae Johnson, EDGE T.J. Watt, DL Cam Heyward, CB Joe Haden, and S Minkah Fitzpatrick are still with the team. Some new additions in EDGE Melvin Ingram, G Trai Turner, LB Joe Schobert, and C B.J. Finley are nice, but it might not be enough to overcome all of the key players they lost. Some of these key losses include EDGE Bud Dupree, RB James Conner, T Andrew Villanueva, and CB Mike Hilton. These players are ones that Mike Tomlin and the front office would want to keep because they have been part of the Steeler way for a long time and know the system inside and out.

The Steelers are still a talented and well-coached team and the way this season goes falls on the arm of Ben Rothlisberger. Rothlisberger says he’s been dieting for the first time in his career this season and we should see if that improves his arm strength, which was fading at the end of last season.

Reasons Why Steelers Win Super Bowl

The power of the Steelers comes from their coaching and defense. The Steelers were one of the best defenses last season because of their aggressiveness and talent.

T.J. Watt is the star player for that unit as he is a DPOY candidate and he should have won the award last year. Watt had a 2020 season to remember as he had 15 sacks and 1 INT. Not bad for a guy that primarily rushes the quarterback and gets double-teamed regularly. The Steelers also have other really good players like grizzled veteran Cameron Heyward, Minkah Fitzpatrick, and Melvin Ingram. Cam Heyward is the plug-up the middle that every successful team needs, Ingram is another stellar pass rusher opposite of Watt and Fitzpatrick is everywhere on the football field. This Steelers’ defense was one of the most feared units in the NFL last season and with playmakers at all three levels, it’s no wonder this was one of the top 5 defenses in all of football.

Moving onto where the magic really happens, Mike Tomlin is one of the best coaches the NFL has to offer. Not only was he able to contain the headaches that were Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell, but he managed to squeeze 12 wins out of a team that was not a 12 win team. This was in part because of the easier schedule the Steelers had last season, but a large amount of credit should be given to Tomlin. Tomlin and the coaching staff did their best to keep the offense humming despite Rothlisberger’s deteriorating arm strength and the offensive line struggling. They tried to keep it together and actually managed to win 12 games and get into the playoffs before running out of gas.

Reasons Why Steelers Don’t Win Super Bowl

The question marks with the Steelers are on their offense. We know the defense is going to be awesome as the Steelers always manage to have good players and great schemes to give other teams problems, but the offense is an area of major concern.

Last year, the Steelers looked red hot out of the gate on offense. Then, halfway through the season, they began to struggle mightily and things that were working in Weeks 2-3 were not working in Weeks 12-13. The struggles with the Steelers’ offense begin with the offensive line where they could not block for the run or pass. The Steelers were last in the league last season for rushing yards and 5th worst in rushing attempts. The Steelers knew they couldn’t run the ball so they resorted to the short passing game, and this actually worked for a while. But then teams started to figure them out and pounce on those short routes. The Steelers had no more tricks up their sleeves after that as Big Ben’s arm strength was shot at this point in the season and he could not push the ball down the field. The Steelers didn’t address their offensive line issues this season and instead opted to select the top running back in the draft, Najee Harris, to try and patch up the run game that way.

The Steelers are also going to struggle this season because of the sheer difficulty of their schedule. The Steelers play the #1 hardest schedule this season, according to last year’s opponent’s win-loss record. This year, Pittsburgh has to play the Bills, Ravens, Browns, Bengals, Chargers, Raiders, Broncos, Seahawks, Bears, Lions, Vikings, Titans, and Chiefs. There is no room for error for the Steelers this season as a majority of these teams are going into the playoffs or are fighting for a playoff spot this season. Every week is a must-win for the Steelers and they will have to be at the top of their game all season if they want a chance to reach the playoffs.
