The Steelers’ Super Bowl odds have fluctuated throughout the offseason, but they are currently listed at +4400 by FanDuel Sportsbook.

Cincinnati claimed 11% of the bettors. Gamblers are also bearish on the Steelers’ win total, with 51% of the money betting on the team to win fewer than 8.5 games, their over/under line.
