Steelers face 20-1 odds of having NFL’s best record in 2019
Coming off a 9-6-1 season, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be trying to return to the AFC playoffs for the fifth time in six years.
One gambling site thinks the Steelers have a better chance of achieving the NFL’s best record in 2019 than they do the worst.
According to BetOnline.ag, the Steelers face 20-1 odds of having the NFL’s top record in the regular season. That puts them in a tie for 10th among all teams. They face the same odds as the Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings.
To no surprise, the defending champion New England Patriots have the best odds, at 6-1, of getting the top record. The Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints are next at 7-1. The Miami Dolphins have the worst odds at 500-1.
The Dolphins, conversely, are the top pick for the worst regular-season record, holding 6-1 odds. The Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins are in a six-way tie at 8-1.
The Steelers face 33-1 odds of having the worst record.
