The Pittsburgh Steelers lost running back Le’Veon Bell for the remainder of the season this past Sunday in their loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and Las Vegas was sure to notice the injury.
The loss of Bell, who tore the MCL in his right knee, resulted in the Steelers Super Bowl odds being pushed back to 33/1, according to Bovada. Just a few weeks ago, the Steelers were listed at 20/1 to win their seventh Lombardi Trophy.
The Steelers latest Super Bowl odds drop has them tied for the 10th best with the Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys.
As you can probably guess, the New England Patriots are still the favorites to win Super Bowl 50 this year and they are followed by the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals.
As far as the AFC odds go, the Steelers are currently the fourth-favorite with 9/1 odds and they’re behind the Patriots, Denver Broncos and Bengals.
As I wrote this past week, if the Steelers defensive ANY/A doesn’t start improving quickly, you can forget about the Steelers going to the Super Bowl this year. The 4-4 Steelers will host the 4-3 Oakland Raiders Sunday at Heinz Field.
