Super Bowl odds will have the Steelers as one of the favorites to win the Vince Lombardi trophy which would give them 3 Super Bowl betting titles in 5 years if they can pull it off.
The Steelers finished with a record of 12-4 straight up and 10-6 against the spread as they were the champions of the AFC North after winning a tie breaker with the Baltimore Ravens.
Pittsburgh closed out the season in dominating fashion with 6 straight up wins in their final 7 games as they got the money 5 times during that span. Pittsburgh was equally effective both at home and on the road with a mark of 5-3 against the spread.
Since the 2005 season the Steelers have won 2 Super Bowl gambling championships and the Men of Steel have posted double digit win seasons every year since the 2003 campaign. This sustained level of excellence is what makes the Steelers so popular with gamblers.
Defense is the bedrock of the Steelers and what makes them a potential champion. Pittsburgh ranked 2nd overall in the NFL for total defense and 1st for points allowed. They held opponents to 10 points or less in 4 of their final 5 games of the season.
On offense quarterback Ben Roethlisberger proved that he is a key asset with the NFL Super Bowl odds as he compiled a 97.0 quarterback rating based on a 62% completion rate with 3200 yards and 8.2 yards per pass attempt. Roethlisberger had a strong 17/5 touchdown to interception ratio and reminded everyone why he was the main spark for the Pittsburgh offense for their 2005 and 2008 titles.
Rashard Mendenhall was a workhorse running back that ended up with 1273 yards and a 3.9 yards per carry average with 13 touchdowns. Mendenhall’s ability to carry the load on the ground keeps opposing defenses honest and gives Pittsburgh the versatility needed to win a championship.
Mike Wallace is another key asset with the Super Bowl odds as he had 60 receptions for 1257 yards and a 20.9 yards per catch average with 10 touchdowns.
The Steelers split their 2 games with Baltimore and lost at home to New England 39-26.
