What to Know: Pittsburgh missed the playoffs for the first time in five years in 2018 when it finished 9-6-1. The Steelers played the entire season without star running back Le’Veon Bell over a contract dispute and then saw him leave as a free agent to sign with the New York Jets. They also traded star wide receiver Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders after he became upset with the team and asked for a trade. The offense could suffer because of it.
Best Players: Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who turned 37 in March, is still the key to the Steelers offense. If Ben plays well the team has a chance. If he starts to slow down the team is in trouble. The loss of Bell and Brown puts a lot of pressure on running back James Connor and wide receiver JuJu Schuster-Smith.
How to Bet: Pittsburgh is another team with a huge following, so lots of money gets wagered on the Steelers and moves the line. Take a look, but it might be good to bet against them early in the season as the new players are trying to mesh. Also the over is always a good bet with the Steelers.
