Pro Football Focus has the Steelers winning 8.5 games in the 2021 NFL Season


It looks like Pro Football Focus will continue to disrespect the Pittsburgh Steelers going into the 2021 season. Although the Steelers have one of the toughest schedules in 2021 it should be noted that Mike Tomlin hasn't had a losing season being the Steelers Head Coach. That includes one year without Ben Roethlisberger as their quarterback too. So even though the Steelers have a tough schedule Tomlin has always found a way to produce a winning season throughout his career with the organization.


PFF has used their betting analysts to provide their latest 2021 season simulation for all 32 teams. All of their odds have been sourced by DraftKings. They include updated win totals, current odds, implied odds, true totals, PFF simulation results, and PFF bets. Basically, this how PFF feels the 2021 season is going to play out if they were going to bet.


They have the Pittsburgh Steelers finishing 3rd in the AFC North behind the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns in 2021. It looks like they're predicting the Steeler's win total to be around 8.5. The Steelers over price is -125 and their underprice is +103.

PFF feels the Ravens will win 11 games in 2021 and the Cleveland Browns will win 9.5 games as well. That is obviously higher than the Pittsburgh Steelers 8.5 in 2021. It does look like PFF has the Ravens ranked with the 3rd best winning odds heading into the 2021 season behind the Chiefs and Buccaneers for the regular season. It should be noted that many of the Steelers betting odds in 2020 were pretty awful and it is still too early to project how the Steelers season will play out in 2021, but this gives you a good idea very early on how Pro Football Focus feels about the Steelers 2021 team.
