When it comes to the NFL, the season never stops, even if the Super Bowl was just played less than 24 hours ago. No matter what, your team is already looking forward to next season, and that includes the Steelers, who wrapped up 2019 with an 8-8 record, but fell in their last three games.
With the 2019 season now officially over after the Kansas City Chiefs took home the Super Bowl Sunday night, there’s already chatter about what team among any NFL sportsbook is favored to step up and win the Super Bowl next season in February of 2021.
The Steelers, per usual, will be in the mix, but just how do the oddsmakers feel about the black and golds chances of taking home a seventh Lombardi trophy next year?
Well, most of that depends on what book you look at today, as many have the team sitting at middle of the pack, to some thinking the team will be much higher than that.
One sportsbook, that being Caesars Sportsbook in Las Vegas, has the Steelers sitting as the sixth favorite team to win it all at 15-1 odds. With the return of future Hall of Fame quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and money to spend this offseason in free agency, the Steelers should be able to reload enough.
The Ravens are the stiffest competition in the AFC North, and for good reason after going 14-2 this past season and also boasting the MVP in the league in quarterback Lamar Jackson, who won the honor on Saturday night at the NFL Honors award.
Many think that despite losing to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Divisional Playoff game, the Ravens will be right in the mix ahead of even the Steelers in 2020.
Back to the Steelers odds, other sports books don’t seem to be as high as Caesars, as almost all of them have the Steelers between 20-1 and 22-1 to win the Super Bowl.
That doesn’t mean they are not encouraging odds, it just means that there’s going to be stiff competition ahead of them, like the Chiefs, 49ers, Patriots, Cowboys, Saints, and as the before mentioned Ravens.
All those teams are going to be ahead of the Steelers, and it won’t be easy for the black and gold to get past those teams to fight their way to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, the site of Super Bowl 55 (and oddly enough the site of the last Steelers Super Bowl win in 2009).
