One can only imagine how much the Pittsburgh Steelers are kicking themselves for a horrific 23-17 loss to the lowly Chicago Bears back in September. As a result of that early season defeat, Ben Roethlisberger and company need a miracle to steal home field advantage away from the New England Patriots this postseason. And yet, despite all of this, the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl odds are still second best in the entire NFL.
As the Steelers prepare for their final regular season game against the 0-15 Cleveland Browns on Sunday, they will no doubt be keeping an eye on the scoreboard to see if the New York Jets can somehow pull off the shocker of the year in Foxboro, which would give Pittsburgh home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.
It would also probably increase the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl odds, which are currently second best in the league at just 5/1 – although still significantly behind the Patriots odds of 2/1.
Super Bowl Odds Entering Week 17
While the Steelers hope for the unthinkable (a Jets win in New England on Sunday), they are at least guaranteed a home Divisional matchup.
The odds below might change a bit after Sunday's finale, but here are the Super Bowl odds for nine squads that have cliched a playoff birth already and those still trying to sneak in as we head into week 17.
|New England Patriots||2/1|
|New Orleans Saints||10/1|
|Los Angeles Rams||10/1|
|Kansas City Chiefs||14/1|
|Los Angeles Chargers||66/1|
