Pittsburgh Steelers 2023 Schedule And Opening Betting Lines

Written By Corey Sharp on May 12, 2023
The Pittsburgh Steelers schedule came out on Thursday night and features some great games this year.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are going to be on primetime in two of the first three weeks of the 2023 season after the NFL released the full schedule on Thursday night.

One thing Steelers fans, and football fans in general, know about Mike Tomlin is that he always puts a good product on the field. The Steelers have never had a losing season under Tomlin.

Even with rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett, the Steelers went 7-2 after their bye and finished with a 9-8 record to narrowly miss the playoffs a year ago.

Fans can bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers games and win totals now using their PA online sportsbooks.

Top Pittsburgh Steelers games in 2023

As an up-and-coming team, the Steelers have an interesting schedule. They have the 11th toughest schedule in the league, and face five playoff teams from last season.

The Steelers will get tested early against the 49ers at home. It remains to be seen if Brock Purdy or Trey Lance is under center for the 49ers. Either way, it’s going to be an early litmus test.

The last game of the season against the Ravens will most certainly have playoff implications. What Steelers-Ravens game doesn’t?

The Steelers get to travel to Las Vegas for a Sunday night tilt against the Raiders early on. Steelers fans probably wish the game was in December, however, no trip to Vegas is a bad one.

The same could be said for Los Angeles, as the Steelers travel to Hollywood at the end of October. Another good opportunity for fans to escape for the LA sun.

The Steelers will be tested with a cross-country trip in Week 17 against the Seahawks. The Seahawks’ inexperienced core with veteran Geno Smith facing a young Steelers should make for an interesting matchup. A Tomlin battle against Pete Carroll is always a great one.

Pittsburgh Steelers betting odds for opening four games

Odds for the Steelers’ full schedule is available on DraftKings Sportsbook PA.

Week 1: Sun., Sept. 10 vs. San Francisco, 1 p.m.

Anything can happen in the opening week of the season. Last year, the Steelers stunned the Bengals on the road in Week 1 with a 23-20 overtime win. There’s no reason why the Steelers can’t spoil the 49ers’ season-opener. The Steelers open as 3-point home-underdogs in Week 1.

Week 2: Mon., Sept. 18 vs. Cleveland, 8:15 p.m.

AFC North games are usually wars. Low scoring and hard hitting is what football fans are accustomed to in a Browns-Steelers game. A full offseason of Deshaun Watson should make Cleveland better, but it’s always tough to win in Acrisure Stadium, especially on a Monday night. Oddsmakers are giving the Steelers the edge as 1-point home favorites.

Week 3: Sun., Sept. 24 at Las Vegas, 8:20 p.m.

The Steelers beat the Raiders on Christmas Eve after Pickett engineered a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. The Raiders are a different team with Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback. It’s another short spread, as the Steelers are 1.5-point road underdogs for the Sunday night showdown.

Week 4: Sun., Oct. 1 at Houston, 1 p.m.

The Texans will also have a new look with No. 2 pick C.J. Stroud under center. Tomlin tends to rattle rookie quarterbacks, but there’s no doubt the Texans are better with a new regime at quarterback and head coach DeMeco Ryans taking over. The Steelers are 3.5-point favorites on the road.
