The Pittsburgh Steelers will travel to the New York Giants in Week One of the upcoming NFL season, and the betting patterns make for positive viewing from a Black and Gold perspective.
Despite the fact that the spread favors the Giants by 3.5, bettors have convincingly backed the Steelers with 73% of wagers placed going behind Pittsburgh.
In fact, across all the Week One games only the Kansas City Chiefs have a more dominant share of bets; currently 88% of bets on the spread market between them and the Houston Texans have gone on the current Super Bowl champions.
Oddschecker spokesperson: “Juju-Smith Schuster continues to one of the most exciting WRs in the game and Ben Roethlisberger is the current betting favorite for Comeback Player of the Year; things don’t look too bad in Pittsburgh.”
“Mike Tomlin will know that if they can start strong and build some momentum, they can definitely give the Ravens a run for their money in the AFC North – and sports bettors have demonstrated that they think Big Ben et al will do exactly that.”
