The Pittsburgh Steelers have gotten over the hurdle of the AFC Wild Card game, their first playoff win in 5 years, and now face the top-seeded Denver Broncos in the AFC Divisional round of the AFC Playoffs. They are one win away from the AFC Championship game and just two wins away from playing in Super Bowl 50, but what are the odds that actually takes place?
Per the Bovada sports book in Las Vegas, here are the odds for the Steelers, and the rest of the field, to win Super Bowl 50.
Odds to win Super Bowl 50:
Arizona Cardinals: 17/4
New England Patriots: 9/2
Carolina Panthers: 5/1
Denver Broncos: 11/2
Seattle Seahawks: 11/2
Kansas City Chiefs: 9/1
Green Bay Packers: 12/1
Pittsburgh Steelers: 12/1
As for the odds to win the American Football Conference (AFC), here are the complete odds:
Odds to win the 2015-16 AFC Conference:
New England Patriots: 8/5
Denver Broncos: 11/5
Kansas City Chiefs: 4/1
Pittsburgh Steelers: 4/1
Bovada even includes the odds for specific Super Bowl 50 matchups. Take a look at the odds for the Steelers to face any of the remaining NFC teams still playing:
Arizona Cardinals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: 12/1
Carolina Panthers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: 12/1
Green Bay Packers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: 35/1
Seattle Seahawks vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: 20/1
These odds certainly reflect the fact the Steelers not only face the top-seeded Broncos in the next round, but the injuries surrounding some of their key play makers. With Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and DeAngelo Williams all unknown commodities heading into Sunday's AFC Playoff game, there is no doubt it influenced these odds. If these players prove they can play Sunday, the odds could very well move in Pittsburgh's favor.
