What Are the Steelers’ Chances to Win Super Bowl LIII?
The initial odds for whoever will win Super Bowl LIII are out. The odds for all 32 teams have been released with the Pittsburgh Steelers having good chances through many sportsbook sites. But while the Steelers 2018 odds for Super Bowl LIII are great, there are plenty of other contenders to watch for.
The lines for the Steelers are all very different. The team is a big favorite and is in the top five on all of these sites, but the numbers are different:
• MyBookie.ag lists the Steelers odds at 10-1 to win the Super Bowl. They are fourth behind New England, Philadelphia and Green Bay.
• Pregame.com has a 10-1 line for the Steelers as well. They are tied with Green Bay for the third-best odds, but New England and Philadelphia are both on top.
• Bovada has a 12-1 line for the Steelers. They are tied with Minnesota but also behind the Patriots, Eagles and Packers.
The lines are all different, but the Steelers are the top team in the AFC North on all three of those sportsbooks. The other teams in the AFC North are not expected to contend:
• The Baltimore Ravens have 40-1 or 50-1 odds to win depending on the sportsbook one looks through.
• The Cincinnati Bengals are in the bottom five of all of these sportsbook lines. They have 66-1 odds at Bovada and 125-1 odds on Pregame.com.
• The Cleveland Browns have the worst odds on all of these sportsbooks. They have a 175-1 line at Pregame.com.
But even with these totals, the Pittsburgh Steelers are still expected to be strong contenders for Super Bowl LIII. Much of the team’s offense will return, although running back Le’Veon Bell is a free agent. It is expected that Bell will stick around with the team. Randy Fichtner, the team’s quarterback coach, will be the new offensive coordinator.
The team will also continue to be a strong contender with new faces at the free safety and inside linebacker positions. The team is expected to go after some big names in the free agency market. The team’s competitive nature and strong window for winning will surely make the Steelers a popular team for free agents.
As for the competition, the Steelers will surely have plenty of other teams to watch out for:
• The New England Patriots will compete with Tom Brady still being there. But there is a chance that tight end Rob Gronkowski might retire.
• The Philadelphia Eagles will aim to defend their Super Bowl title. But there might be a debate over whether Nick Foles or Carson Wentz is the right quarterback at the time.
• Aaron Rodgers will be healthy again to get the Green Bay Packers rolling.
• The Los Angeles Rams are growing with Jared Goff and Todd Gurley being very strong competitors.
• The health of Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt will surely give the Houston Texans a chance to win big in the coming year.
Super Bowl LIII will be held on February 3, 2019. It will take place in Atlanta at the brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The chances for the Pittsburgh Steelers to win the game are surely strong.
