The NFL regular season will hit its three quarter mark on Sunday. A few players have already begun to pull away from the pack when it comes to the leagues yearly awards. With the Steelers currently sitting with a sterling 11-0 record it comes to no surprise that a number of Steelers players are in consideration. So with out further adieu, here are the current betting odds to those awards featuring Pittsburgh Steelers. *Odds courtesy of Sports Betting Dime

For those that don’t know what +/- odds mean here is a quick definition courtesy of Athlon Sports:

Odds expressed in terms of money, with $100 being the standard. If the odds are minus (–), then that amount of money must be wagered to win $100. (e.g. –150 means you must bet $150 to win $100.) If the odds are plus (+), that amount of money would be earned on a successful $100 wager. (e.g. +150 means you make $150 on a $100 wager.) Money line is also sometimes referred to as “American Odds.”

Offensive Rookie of the Year

Top 5 odds:
1. Justin Herbert -1200
2. Justin Jefferson +850
T-3. Chase Claypool +1500
T-3. Antonio Gibson +1500
5. Tua Tagovailoa +2200

Justin Herbert became the overwhelming favorite after the season ending injury to Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow. The quarterback bias is strong with the offensive rookie of the year award, as I feel the receiving duo of Justin Jefferson and Chase Claypool have contributed more to the success of their team than Herbert.

Despite Claypool scoring 10 majors already this year, I think the Steelers second round pick has a mountain to climb to be seriously considered for the award.

Defensive Player of the Year

Top 5 odds:
1. T.J. Watt +200
2. Aaron Donald +225
3. Myles Garrett +400
4. Joey Bosa +1400
5. Khalil Mack + 2500

T.J. Watt is narrowly edging Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald in the latest odds. This award looks like it will go down to the wire, with whomever has the best December being crowned its winner. That being said I would be surprised if 2020 wasn't T.J.’s year.

Coach of the Year

Top 5 odds:
1. Mike Tomlin +105
2. Brian Flores +350
3. Kevin Stefanski +600
4. Sean Peyton +950
5. Mike Vrabel +1300

Mike Tomlin has to be the unquestioned leader for the coach of the year award. The more games his Steelers win the more likely he is to bring the trophy home. If the Steelers can find a way to finish the year 16-0 I'm sure he will be a unanimous selection.

Most Valuable Player

Top 5 odds:
1. Patrick Mahomes -400
2. Aaron Rodgers +550
3. Russell Wilson +650
4. Ben Roethlisberger +2000
5. Four players at +3300

Patrick Mahomes is running away with this one. However, if anyone is going to catch him it has to be Ben Roethlisberger. Now why do I believe this? Since the 1985 Bears, any time a team has started 12-0 or better a player from that team wins the league MVP. And, anytime In the history of the NFL, if a team has started the year 13-0 a player on that team has been the leagues MVP.

If (and its a big if) the Steelers can finish the year 16-0 with Ben Roethlisberger leading the way and if the Chiefs falter, theirs a chance. People will recognize the difficulty of a undefeated season at some point.
