Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Betting
So far this season, the Steelers are off to 4-0 start, which has them in first place atop the AFC North. On Sunday, they used a timely touchdown reception from Chase Claypool to fend off a comeback effort from the Philadelphia Eagles.
In the past 24 hours, bettors have reacted to the unbeaten showing from Pittsburgh. Despite the fact that Pittsburgh’s four wins are against opponents with a combined 3-15-1 record on the season, the Steelers are the most popular Super Bowl pick in the NFL since Sunday night.

Green Bay Packers +1000
New Orleans Saints +1200

The second most popular team has been the Baltimore Ravens (12.35%) followed by another division opponent in Cleveland (9.88%).
Cleveland’s only loss on the year came to Baltimore, and the Ravens’ lone defeat was at the hands of Super Bowl favorite Kansas City.

Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl Chances
Playing in one of the toughest divisions in football is a major drawback for Pittsburgh. Even Cincinnati, which has tons of work to do, has played some teams tough this season. The top three teams in the AFC North are a combined 12-2 so far and show no signs of slowing down.
From an odds standpoint, the Steelers’ +1500 Super Bowl odds imply a 6.3% chance of winning it all. Their schedule being as weak as it’s been to this point is preventing them from moving into one of the favorites across the league.
Luckily for the Steelers, and NFL fans, we’ll know by the end of the month if Pittsburgh is for real. Their next three opponents (Cleveland, Tennessee and Baltimore) are a combined 11-2 in 2020.
