Denver Broncos vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Week 5 Betting Odds: Sputtering Steelers Offense Faces Tough Test

Written By Katie Kohler on October 4, 2021

Even as 7-point underdogs, the Pittsburgh Steelers couldn’t satisfy their bettors as they fell to the Green Bay Packers 27-17. This one was a sweat for total points bettors (44).

Through four games, the Steelers rank 28th for points-per-game (16.8) and they are averaging a league-worst 55.3 rushing yards-per-game. At 1-3, the Steelers are seeing the AFC North slip away. They opened the season at +500 to win the division and are now +2000.

The Denver Broncos (3-1) are coming off a 23-7 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Broncos’ quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered a concussion and did not play in the second half.

Pennsylvania sports betting apps opened with the Steelers as 1.5-point favorites with the total points line at 40.
