Steelers 2012 Win Total Betting Line Opens Up In Vegas At 10

Joe Fortenbaugh of the National Football Post let us all know on Thursday that Cantor Gaming in Las Vegas released its 2012 NFL season win totals for all 32 teams on Wednesday. Those odds show that over/under total wins for the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2012 season opened at 10. The Baltimore Ravens also have a total win over/under line of 10 as well.

As far as the AFC goes, the New England Patriots lead the pack with a projected 12 wins while the Houston Texans are at 10 like the Steelers and Ravens. The rest of the AFC North division checks in with the Cincinnati Bengals at 7.5 and the Cleveland Browns at 5.5.

While the Steelers and the Ravens win total lines are not overly shocking, the Bengals 7.5 I find a little low. Quite a few of the so called experts think the Bengals have a legitimate chance to compete for the division and at the very least make the play-offs for a second consecutive season. A few of those so called experts on ESPN even think that the Steelers will finish third overall in the division.

A few unders I like at this early stage? The Ravens and the Green Bay Packers. A few overs? The Chicago Bears and the Carolina Panthers.

Below are the lines:

Green Bay Packers: 12 (Over: -125, Under: -105)
New England Patriots: 12 (Over: -120, Under: -110)
Houston Texans: 10 (Over: -140, Under: +110)

San Francisco 49ers: 10 (Over: +105, Under: -135)

New York Giants: 9.5 (Over: -110, Under: -120)
Detroit Lions: 9.5 (Over: +105, Under: -135)

    What are the Steelers current odds to win the Super Bowl?

  • Jprankster2005

    I’ll take the bengals over and the dolphins under….. For sure winner

  • Nik Greene

    Cincinnati might be another good over. 8-8 or 9-7 seems pretty attainable for them. But I suppose if Dalton doesn’t make the right adjustments it could be a long year.

    I’d seriously consider getting in on the Saints at 10 for that price.

    Lets see, the ESPN ” experts ” , Marcellus, Herm, and Bill P., picked the Steelers to finish third in the division under the Ravens and the Bengals, Vegas picks the Steelers and Ravens tied at 10 wins and the Bengals @ 7.5 at least as far as putting their money where their mouths are. This time of year everyone has an opinion myself included but can the ” experts ” be any more wrong in their prediction that the Steelers finish third in the division. I think not, call out the medical staff Marcellus, Herm, and Bill P. have dislocated some brain cells !

    There’s no way we finish 3rd with the D we will have an upgrade from last yr….. I hear alot of people saying we will be number 1 in football with Foote and Spence playing ILB becasue Farrior didn’t fair well in passing game and could pretty much make out what he was going to do…….. And with the O line less sacks for Ben means more plays and more points……. I wouldn’t be suprised if we won the Division with ease and won 13 games this yr…….We will win 2 super bowls in the next 4 yrs…….It’s just if they get the plays down this yr. and if the O line can work together…….That’s the only question mark I really see…….

    I think we have a few question marks which will be key. Can Adams play well enough his first season to allow Gilbert to continue to learn and excel at RT and Colon to make a permanent move to LT? If that does not happen then will Starks be able to come back without training camp and learn a new system and verbiage fast enough to be the LT? Does Gilbert have to move to LT afterall? Will one of our projected 5 of Adams, Colon, Pouncey, DeCastro, Gilbert suffer a season ending injury?

    I think Foote will handle the Buck just fine but is Spence the real thing? If he is then where does he play as Timmons can only play Mack? If Foote is hurt who do we have who could play Buck?

    Many more questions which is why I think Vegas has us at only 10 wins. If however, things come together then it will still take half a season for everyone to learn the new O-system. There will be some growing pains.

    I see an 11-5 season with most of the wins coming in the second half.

    I really do get all of what you stated above, they are the same questions all the ” experts ” should have. My point was that the Ravens have an equal amount of question marks and the Bengals have more when it comes to young guys contributing consistently at a high level as the Steelers do. I am really calling out the three ” experts ” ( Herm, Marcellus, and Bill P. ) who picked the Steelers to finish third in the division on national TV. Like you I can’t find reasonable justifications for it unless all the young players on the Steelers tank completely and those on the Ravens and Bengals do not. I have to go with the guys from Vegas on their analysis that the amount of success by the young players will be pretty much even across the board and the expectations should be that there really isn’t any major change in the divisional strength proportion except slightly down due to strength of schedule which is what appears they have done prognosticating 10 wins for the top 2 teams in the division versus 12 last year. This at least makes some sense on the broad canvas that is prognostication of the NFL by cracked crystal ball methodology, statistics, and good old fashioned gut feel. The TV experts analysis doesn’t make sense. “Nuff said.
