- The Pittsburgh Steelers' Super Bowl odds are falling in the wake of Ben Roethlisberger's season-ending injury.
Ben Roethlisberger is out. Mason Rudolph is in. And the Steelers’ odds are on the move.
Roethlisberger is set to undergo surgery on his right elbow that will sideline him for the rest of the season. The Steelers were 30-1 to win the Super Bowl at the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook heading into Week 2, but are down to 200-1 with the loss of Roethlisberger.
Westgate bookmaker Jeff Sherman told our Darren Rovell that the book was aggressive to slash the Steelers’ Super Bowl odds because it didn’t have much preseason exposure.
Pittsburgh’s conference championship odds have also taken a hit: The Steelers were tied for the fourth-best odds to win the AFC title at 15-1 as of Sept. 9 at Westgate, but now sit at 100-1.
The Steelers are also down to the third-best odds to win the AFC North. The 2-0 Baltimore Ravens are favored to win the division (-200) at Caesars, while the Steelers sit behind the Cleveland Browns (+170) at 16-1.
