The Pittsburgh Steelers’ season is over, and you can let the speculation begin. And, of course, Vegas has odds on that speculation.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were considered Super Bowl favorites at one time, but now their season has unceremoniously ended. After another one-and-done postseason, this time losing to the Cleveland Browns in the Wild Card round of the AFC Playoffs, the Steelers enter an extremely uncertain offseason.

There are questions about coaching changes, mainly for offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner, questions surrounding free agents like JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Conner and Mike Hilton, and also the potential retirements of people like Maurkice Pouncey, Alejandro Villanueva or Ben Roethlisberger.

Of course, those who pay attention to gambling odds know Vegas never misses an opportunity to create some odds. They’ve done that with the Steelers, now that their season is over, mainly with the potential retirement of Roethlisberger.

But there’s more...

There are also odds on if the Steelers will take a quarterback in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, and even odds on them landing Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson if he does indeed want out of his current situation.
