The Steelers are a team with high hopes, and Las Vegas sees them as heavy favorites to make the playoffs again.

Pittsburgh Steelers fans are spoiled. A playoff berth is nothing to write home about, and most would scoff at nothing more than a playoff spot in the AFC Playoffs. Forget franchises like the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets who haven’t sniffed the playoffs in a long time — it is Super Bowl or bust for the black-and-gold faithful.

As it should be with the Steelers returning almost their entire roster from their 2017 13-3 team. But to get to the big dance, they have to first make the playoffs, and the latest odds, by OddsShark, have the Steelers with the second best odds to make the postseason.

Check out the odds for all 32 NFL teams:

At -550, only the New England Patriots (-1500) have better odds to make the postseason this upcoming season.

Picking the front runners in the NFL isn’t really difficult, but picking the turnover in the playoffs every year is much more of a challenge. For instance, not many would have picked two representatives from the AFC South to make the AFC Playoffs last year, but the Jaguars and Titans did just that.
