Pittsburgh Steelers: Can They Win Without Big Ben? This coming Sunday the Pittsburgh Steelers will travel to Denver to play the Broncos in Round 2 of the NFL playoffs. Because of the Ben Roethlisberger injury some betting sites have yet to post Steelers Broncos betting odds on this game, but the Top Bet sportsbook has. The Broncos are currently -7 point home favorites with Peyton Manning returning as a starter.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of those teams that always has a chance to win the Super Bowl. The Steelers were able to defeat the Bengals in the last minute of their AFC Wild Card matchup game, thus sending the Steelers to Denver in order to play the Broncos in the AFC Divisional game.
The biggest question mark for Steelers fans is the availability of starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Although he was able to come back out on the field for the last drive of the game against the Bengals, Big Ben was able to navigate the Steelers to a last minute win on the road.
In an earlier series, Roethlisberger was driven into the ground shoulder first, thus impacting his ability to throw the ball down the field. Big Ben toughed it out, although many experts say that his injury could keep him out the game when the Steelers travel to Denver to face the Broncos.
Online sports books have the Steelers going off at 7/1, although these odds may change as more information becomes known about the status of Ben Roethlisberger. Although he has sat out a few games this season with injuries, the Steelers are a different team without the two time Super Bowl winning quarterback on the field.
