Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens Week 18 Betting Lines and Current Playoff Odds; Roethlisberger’s Last Game?

Written By Katie Kohler on January 3, 2022 - Last Updated on January 10, 2022

The Cincinnati Bengals clinched their fist AFC North title since 2015 on Sunday with a 34-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bengals were +1600 to win the division at the start of the season.

On Monday night, the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-7-1) hosted the Cleveland Browns (7-8) Ben Roethlisberger’s last game at Heinz Field. The Browns went into the Week 17 matchup eliminated from the playoffs and the Steelers hopes were hanging by a thread (a 2% chance according to per FiveThirtyEight.)

The Steelers were +3 at sportsbooks all week, but after the Browns were mathematically eliminated from the NFL playoffs, the line started to shift and by kickoff, the Steelers were between -2.5 to -3 at sportsbooks. The Steelers beat the Browns 26-14 and easily covered (-3) and the game went under the total points (42.5). Roethlisberger took a victory lap after the game at Heinz field and left the field with his family.

In Week 18, the Steelers visit the Baltimore Ravens (8-8).
