Online NFL Betting Odds:
The Steelers are coming off a very successful season that saw Pittsburgh turn in a 13-3 record. That lead to an AFC North title and a 1st round bye for the playoffs. Ultimately that 1st round bye did more harm than good as the Steelers would be eliminated in the divisional round. The Black and Gold would be eliminated by the Jacksonville Jaguars 42-45 bringing an end to their season. In the end, a divisional round appearance is a letdown for a team that bolstered 10 Pro Bowlers and 4 AP All-Pros. Moving forward, Pittsburgh is hopeful they can make a push for the Super Bowl this time around. Considering Ben Roethlisberger’s age, this might be one of the last seasons we ever see out of Big Ben.
Players to Watch: Ben Roethlisberger (4,251 passing yards, 28 TD, 14 INT), Le’Veon Bell (1,291 rushing yards, 9 TD, 2 F), and Antonio Brown (1,533 receiving yards, 9 TD, 101 REC).
Green Bay Packers
The Packers were crippled in 2017 by an injury to their starting quarterback. Subsequently, the club turned in a 7-9 record to finish 3rd in the NFC North and to miss out on the playoffs. However, Rodgers’ injury showed the NFL just how meager this team was across the board. Subsequently, the Pack gutted their coaching staff during the offseason and brought in some eye-raising names. With some new personnel, and a couple of eye-catching free agents, Green Bay is poised to take the NFC North by storm this season.
Players to Watch: Aaron Rodgers (1,836 passing yards, 9 TD, 12 INT), Jamaal Williams (556 rushing yards, 4 TD, 0 F), and Davante Adams (885 receiving yards, 10 TD, 74 REC).
