Pittsburgh Steelers Odds, Spreads, History & More
There was a time last season when the Pittsburgh Steelers looked like Super Bowl favorites. They started 11-0, holding teams to 17.1 points per game and maintaining a firm grip on a very competitive AFC North before injuries took over. Pittsburgh’s woes translated to four losses in the final five weeks of the season. While the Steelers still won their division, they were eliminated in the Wild Card round by the Cleveland Browns. There was a fair amount of roster turnover in the offseason, but here are some of the core players to keep tabs on in 2021.
QB Ben Roethlisberger is in his 18th NFL season, all with Pittsburgh, and coming off of a resurgence in 2020. He looked healthy after missing nearly all of 2019. Roethlisberger’s 3,803 passing yards was his lowest total since 2012, but he did throw for 33 touchdowns — the second-best mark of his career. His 10 interceptions were the fewest he’s thrown since 2014 and he took a career-low 13 sacks. Those numbers stand out even more once you realize that Pittsburgh dealt with several offensive line injuries and had the league’s worst rushing attack at 84.4 yards per game.
The Steelers lone returning starter from last year’s offensive line is Chukwuma Okorafor. They’ve since got Zach Banner back from injury, signed former Pro Bowl guard Trai Turner and spent a draft pick on tackle Dan Moore Jr ., so this is definitely a position group to monitor in 2021. The run game could improve next season after Najee Harris was selected with the 24th overall pick in the draft. Harris is Alabama’s all-time leading rusher after running for 3,843 yards across four college seasons.
Pittsburgh’s receivers also had a promising season with a rejuvenated Roethlisberger. JuJu Smith-Schuster bounced back with 97 catches, 831 yards and nine touchdowns while Diontae Johnson led all Steelers wideouts with 923 yards on 88 catches to go with seven scores. Chase Claypool added another dynamic to the group in his rookie year, notching 62 catches for 873 yards and 11 total touchdowns.
Eight defensive starters from 2020 are back, most notably first team All-Pro selections T.J. Watt and Minkah Fitzpatrick . Watt finished second in Defensive Player of the Year voting after the edge rusher racked up 15 sacks, seven pass breakups and two forced fumbles. Fitzpatrick was among the league’s top defensive backs with 74 total tackles, 11 pass breakups, four interceptions and a forced fumble. Pittsburgh allowed the third-fewest points per game in the NFL last year and have the personnel to potentially be that good again. The Steelers also get linebacker Devin Bush back after an ACL injury limited him to five games in 2020 and added Melvin Ingram , who had five seasons of seven-plus sacks with the Chargers.
The Steelers open the 2021 NFL season at the Buffalo Bills. You can view the Action Network’s top odds for the game below in addition to an odds comparison for every Week 1 game right here.

Steelers Team Rivals
Pittsburgh returned to the top of the AFC North in 2020, going 12-4 to win the division crown by a game. But for the fourth year in a row, the champion in this division was knocked out of the postseason without winning a game. The Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns each finished one game back of Pittsburgh to earn wild card berths. AFC North teams have performed well in the Wild Card round recently, advancing to the Divisional Round in each of the past four attempts. Cleveland beat Pittsburgh last year while Baltimore got past Tennessee. The Cincinnati Bengals finished fourth at 4-11-1 and will look to see how second-year QB Joe Burrow performs coming off a season-ending knee injury. Find weekly Pittsburgh Steelers odds above. Below you’ll find how to bet on the Steelers as well as their complete 2021 schedule, betting trends, performance against-the-spread (ATS), injury history, a full depth chart and more.
Betting on the Pittsburgh Steelers
Steelers Point Spreads
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Steelers were one of the top teams in the league at covering in 2020, owning a 10-6 record against the spread. Pittsburgh’s 12 wins were by an average margin of 11.1 points while its four losses came at an average of 7.3 points.
Here’s an example:
- Ravens +1.5 (+110)
- Steelers -1.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Ravens are 1.5 point underdogs against the Steelers. If Pittsburgh wins the game by two or more points, a $100 wager on the Steelers would come with a payout of $90.91. If Baltimore won the game outright or lost by one point or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
Pittsburgh Steelers Over/Unders
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say the Steelers play the Browns and the over/under is set at 55 points. A wager on the over would require Pittsburgh and Cleveland to score 56 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 54 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 55 points scored.
In 2020, Pittsburgh averaged 28.8 points during its 11-1 start and 19.8 points during its 1-4 finish. The Steelers defense was more consistent, allowing 19.5 points per game. Pittsburgh went 7-7 on point totals last year with two pushes.
The moneyline is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:
- Steelers -150
- Bengals +200
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Baltimore the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Steelers odds would mean every $15 bet nets $10. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Bengals moneyline was set at +200, meaning a $10 wager would profit $20.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Steelers moneyline and -1.5 point spread, Pittsburgh would need to win by two points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.
Pittsburgh Steelers Props
Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- JuJu Smith-Schuster 2021 receptions: 102.5
Let’s break it down a bit. Smith-Schuster averaged 6.1 catches per game in 2020, way up from the 3.5 he had in 2019. We’ll assume he jumps up to 6.5, which would be right between his average last season and his career best 6.9 in 2018. If Smith-Schuster sustained that pace over 16 games, he’d be up to 104 and hit the over on this prop. Remember, the NFL added an extra regular season game in 2021. The additional week would comfortably put Smith-Schuster over here.
Pittsburgh Steelers Futures
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Pittsburgh Steelers odds to win the AFC North
- Pittsburgh Steelers odds to win the AFC
- Pittsburgh Steelers odds to win the Super Bowl
- T.J. Watt’s odds to win Defensive Player of the Year
- Najee Harris’ odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year
If you’re confident that the Steelers can stay healthy and finish the job this year or that T.J. Watt is going to win his first Defensive Player of the Year award, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
