Las Vegas puts odds on how many games Ben Roethlisberger will start for the Steelers in 2017

New, comment

Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t played a full 16-game regular season in a long time, and Las Vegas puts the odds on that happening in 2017.

When it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers offense, Ben Roethlisberger is the straw which stirs the drink. As great as Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant are, they are merely average without Big Ben under center.

The problem has been the Steelers have had to deal without Roethlisberger for extended periods of time the last few seasons. In fact, it has been since the 2014 season when Roethlisberger last played in 16 games throughout the season.

In 2016, Roethlisberger injured his knee against the Miami Dolphins which forced him to miss the New England Patriots game at Heinz Field, and influenced his play in Baltimore against the Ravens following the team’s bye week.

So, what are the odds Roethlisberger stays on the field for the long haul in 2017? The oddsmakers at BookMaker in Las Vegas have placed prop bet odds on Roethlisberger’s starts in 2017, as well as other quarterback odds next season.
