Pittsburgh Steelers betting odds and lines

 For Pittsburgh Steelers to reach the playoffs this season, head coach Mike Tomlin will have to work on the defense.

Pittsburgh Steelers betting odds and lines An awful football season last year for the Pittsburgh Steelers, after the back then defending Super Bowl champions took a hit when starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had his motorcycle accident. With the resulting injuries many experts wrote off the Steelers for reaching the playoffs in 2006 and unfortunately for their fans, the 8-8 record did not cut it.

 All the tribulations forced head coach Bill Cowher to resign in January, after 15 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers. His place was taken by the former defensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings Mike Tomlin. A good choice, after the Steelers defense gave up 114 points more than the AFC North division rival the Baltimore Ravens.

 The Pittsburgh Steelers scored 10 points in the final quarter and came away with a 19-3 win over the Carolina Panthers in the final football preseason game. Tyrone Carter intercepted a David Carr pass and ran 32 yards for a Steelers TD, while Jeff Reed booted four field goals in the win. Prior to that game, the Steelers won 27-13 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Ben Roethlisberger was 13-for-25 for 247 yards and an interception, while Willie Parker ran for 32 yards and a score for the Steelers.

 Even after great football during the preseason, the odds makers remain unsure about their potential, and the betting odds on the Pittsburgh Steelers remain in the golden middle.
