The plan for Mike Tomlin is to sit first round pick Kenny Pickett for the entire year. The plan also isn’t to average 17 points per game, surely. The offense sputtered again in a 29-17 loss to Cleveland on Thursday Night Football. The defense forced five Week 1 turnovers, but just one combined in their last two. Without Defensive Player of the Year TJ Watt for the rest of the season, this unit and– as a result– this team might be in for tough sledding in a stud AFC North division.

Week 4 Odds: Steelers vs. Jets Spread, Total & Moneyline
The Steelers are home favorites in a Week 4 matchup with the New York Jets. Pittsburgh comes off extra rest this game after playing on Thursday night and faces a familiar foe: Joe Flacco, who is filling in for Zach Wilson for at least another game. Outside of one quarter, the Jets offense has been tough to watch, scoring just nine, 12, and 14 points in that span. Keep an eye on the health of Jets’ dynamic rookie Garrett Wilson, who left their last game with an injury. This game has an over/under of points.

How to bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Steelers -185
- Panthers +310
The Steelers are considered heavy favorites in this matchup (indicated by -185), requiring a $185 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Panthers are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $410 total for a $100 bet ($310 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Steelers -3.5 (-110)
- Giants +6.5 (-110)
In this example, Pittsburgh is favored by 3.5 points, indicated by “-3.5.” If the Steelers win the game 24-20, the Steelers (-3.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Giants keep the game within four and lose 34-31, the Giants (+3.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, a Steelers matchup with the Titans had a point total of 53.5 points. Pittsburgh won that game 27-24, resulting in 51 total points. Those who bet the over that game would have cashed out.
Pittsburgh fielded one of the toughest defenses in the NFL in 2020 and return most of that defense into 2021. Low opposing point totals coupled with a struggling second-half Steelers defenses resulted in lower projected point totals during the season. Unless the Steelers land a big playmaker in the NFL Draft or in free agency, it’s likely that their 2021 season point totals will remain low.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Steelers (-210) were favored against the Washington Football Team (+150) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Steelers to win would win just $4.76.
However, say the Steelers fell to a big 21-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Football Team, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Steelers to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Pittsburgh (+130) at halftime and the Steelers pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.76 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took Washington (+190) in that game, but Pittsburgh jumps out to a 10-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Pittsburgh (-250) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
Futures are long-term bets that can range from an offseason to a full season (or beyond). Team win totals, award winners, and player performance are common futures.
Steelers 2021 recap
Record: 9-7-1, Second in AFC North. Lost Wild Card round to Chiefs
Record ATS: 8-9
Over/under record: 6-10-1
For the first time since 2004, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be looking for their next franchise quarterback. Under Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh won two Super Bowls and reached one more. They played two games out of playoff contention and never finished below 0.500. The remarkable run came to a close in Kansas City when the Steelers lost in the AFC Wild Card. For the next chapter, Mike Tomlin said Pittsburgh will look to the NFL Draft, where they hope to rejuvenate an offense filled with young and talented pieces.
