NFL 2019-20 Pittsburgh Steelers Sports Betting Analysis
Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the teams with the most history in the NFL. However, they have recently had to deal more with internal dramas than with competing for a Super Bowl. The good thing is that now with two of his top figures outside the team, such as runner Le’Veon Bell and catcher Antonio Brown, the Steelers can focus on playing and, for the sake of the franchise, leave the novels behind.
Betting Odds don’t consider them favorites to win the Super Bowl, since they have them listed +2000, with a 5% chance of achieving it. Let’s look at the NFL betting forecasts for the Pittsburgh Steelers for this 100 season of the NFL.
Pittsburgh Steelers Offensive Analysis
Having a consecrated quarterback like Ben Roethlisberger, the question the Steelers should ask is how to replace an elite runner like Le’Veon Bell and an open receiver of Antonio Brown’s quality. Luckily for the head coach, Mike Tomlin, last season saw tremendous progress in the open wing JuJu Smith-Schuster which, with 1426 yards and seven scores, confirmed to be Brown’s ideal replacement.
On the other hand, runner James Conner had a sensational year, with 973 yards and 12 TDs, he also hopes to be an effective running back for Pittsburgh.
It should be noted that both Smith-Schuster and Conner have the talent to spare, but the previous season both committed fumbles at crucial moments that cost the Steelers games that, in the end, prevented them from being in the postseason.
Pittsburgh Steelers Defensive Analysis
This is an area where Mike Tomlin must work a lot. Talent is there, especially on the hit line where linebacker TJ Watt is making a dreaded name for rival quarterbacks, due to his stellar numbers (13 catches, 6 forced fumbles, 21 quarterbacks and 12 tackles for a loss of yards) ).
In addition to Watt, in the draft, they found in the linebacker Devin Bush, a replacement of quality before the loss of Ryan Shazier, which had caused them a giant gap.
The concern here is the second line since the previous year suffered a lot in that way. They have new figures like cornerback Steven Nelson, from Kansas City and rookie third-round Justin Layne to improve in that department.

As mentioned earlier, they let two talented players go in Bell and Brown. However, it was necessary. The dressing room suffered too much and that hurt them in the field.
In terms of additions, cornerback Steven Nelson will help improve the secondary, had four interceptions the previous year and is expected to replicate the performance. They also hired linebacker Mark Barron, who had a discreet season in the Rams in 2018. Finally, they acquired open receiver Donte Moncrief, who will occupy the position of the second receiver, giving Smith-Schuster the primary field.
Pittsburgh Steelers Draft 2019
With selection 10 in the first round, the Steelers drafted the linebacker Devin Bush, who has a lot of promise and falls like a ring to the finger with the needs of the team.
With pick 66, they selected wide receiver Dontae Johnson, who in Toledo managed 761 yards and eight scores. Besides, the Steelers have a good eye to select receivers, so watch with Johnson.
The cornerback Justin Layne arrives at a high school urged to raise the level and, after his good passage through Michigan State, is expected to make a quality leap to that area.
In the late rounds, Pittsburgh drafted the runner Benny Snell Jr., tight end Zach Gentry, defensive end Sutton Smith, defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs, linebacker Ulysses Gilbert III, and offensive lineman Derwin Gray.
Pittsburgh Steelers 2019 Prediction
Steelers should focus on playing football, no matter how logical it sounds. They are listed +190 to win their division behind the Browns (+125), and above the Ravens (+260). They have talent in both areas and a quality quarterback, they must aspire to enter the playoffs, but for the Super Bowl LIV, they have a long way to go.
