Pittsburgh Steelers odds to win Super Bowl 51 after one week of Free Agency

New, comments

NFL Free Agency changes teams. Players come and players go. So how did Free Agency impact the Steelers odds of winning Super Bowl 51?

The Pittsburgh Steelers organization knows a thing or two about Lombardi trophies. After all, they hold the NFL record for most Super Bowl wins with 6, and are hoping to add to that total in 2016. As nice as that sounds, every NFL team and fan base is saying the same thing in mid-March as they prepare for the NFL Draft, but how realistic are Pittsburgh's chances of winning No. 7? Las Vegas says they are pretty good.

When the 2015 NFL season wrapped up with the Denver Broncos winning Super Bowl 50, the Steelers were in a 4-way tie for the best odds to win Super Bowl 51, and after one week of NFL Free Agency little has changed. Free Agency can change a lot. Players come and players go, and the entire dynamic of a roster can change with the addition of one key player.

So, what are the Steelers odds to win Super Bowl 51, per the Bovada sports book in Las Vegas? 10/1. That is an improvement from 12/1 odds as of February 8th. 10/1 odds are pretty solid odds for a team who is labeled as a legitimate contender to compete for a championship next season, but what about the competition?

Take a look at the Bovada's Top 10 best odds to win Super Bowl 51:

New England Patriots: 15/2
Carolina Panthers: 10/1
Denver Broncos: 10/1
Green Bay Packers: 10/1
Pittsburgh Steelers: 10/1
Seattle Seahawks: 10/1
Arizona Cardinals: 16/1
Dallas Cowboys: 20/1
Houston Texans: 20/1
Cincinnati Bengals: 22/1

Curious what odds the rest of the AFC North teams were given to begin the 2016 league year? The Baltimore Ravens are sitting at 40/1 while the Cleveland Browns are a whopping 150/1 odds to win it all next year. So, feeling lucky? Might want to head to the window before these odds change again!
