Steelers' 2014 Win Total Odds

2014 NFL betting odds Pittsburgh Steelers Ben Roethlisberger

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - The Steelers haven't had a winning season since 2011 but will that trend change in 2014?

The Steelers added mostly roster depth in free agency although they did sign some potential starters as well, including defensive tackle Cam Thomas and free safety Mike Mitchell. LeGarrette Blount was also added to bolster the team's backfield while Lance Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey were signed to fill some holes in the receiving corps. Arthur Moats will compete for a starting linebacker job.

Among Pittsburgh's free agent losses were running back Jonathan Dwyer, receivers Jerricho Cotchery and Emmanuel Sanders, and defensive tackles Al Woods and Ziggy Hood. Long-time safety Ryan Clark also bolted for Washington while Larry Foote, LaMarr Woodley and Levi Brown were outright released.

The Steelers addressed their defense with their first two selections in the 2014 NFL Draft. They took Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier with the 15th overall selection and Notre Dame defensive end Stephon Tuitt with the 46th overall pick. Speedster Dri Archer was the team's pick in the third round while receiver Martavis Bryant of Clemson was Pittsburgh's selection in the fourth.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Steelers' win total in 2014 has been set at over/under 8.5. After finishing with 8-8 records in each of the last two years, the Steelers are primed for a bounce back campaign. Assuming Ben Roethlisberger stays healthy, the defense looks younger and better than it has over the last two years and there should be more than enough weapons on offense to rack up points on a weekly basis. I like the over 8.5 for the Steelers.
