It’s been a tough start to the year for Pennsylvania’s NFL teams with the Pittsburgh Steelers starting out the year 2-4 and the Philadelphia Eagles record at 3-4 after a big loss against Dallas next week.
Fortunately, we’re still not even halfway through the 2019 NFL season. It’s technically still early and both teams still have a shot at making the postseason. But how steep are the odds after Sunday’s games?
We’ll take a look by examining the latest lines from one of PA’s top online sportsbook, PlaySugarHouse PA, to see what the prospects look like for PA’s favorite teams.
Division winner outlook
At 2-4, the Steelers are in third place and 2.5 games back from the Baltimore Ravens. Still, with 10 weeks to go in the NFL season, the Steelers have a chance to win the AFC North at +550. By comparison, the Bengals sit as a +2500 underdog.
Pittsburgh Steelers +550
Things are looking better for the Eagles, who are just a game back from the Dallas Cowboys after their loss on Sunday. While the Cowboys are a favorite to win the NFL East at -139 favorites, the Eagles aren’t too far behind.
Philadelphia Eagles +115

When accounting for a Wild Card Birth, odds of course improve. Will the Eagles and the Steelers be playing in January?
Eagles +100 Yes ( -121 No)
Steelers +300 Yes (-385 No)
NFC and AFC Winners
The odds are stacked against them, but you can place your bets on the Eagles or Steelers winning the Conference Champion in mid-January. For what it’s worth you can also bet on the Miami Dolphins as well at +250000 (that’s $250,000 for a $1 winning bet).
Eagles +1200 (7th in the NFC)
Steelers +3300 (8th in the AFC)
2019 Super Bowl outlook
There are not many Eagles and Steelers fans expecting Super Bowl appearances in 2020, but if you of the optimistic type, betting lines are available today on the PlaySugarHouse PA online casino.
Eagles +2200 (10th in NFL)
Steelers +8000 (18th in NFL)
So what do you think?
Do you think the Eagles or Steelers are better teams than we have seen so far in 2019? Could either team win their division or better yet, go all the way and achieve football immortality?
