When it comes to making NFL picks most pro football handicappers & sports betting experts get stuffed at the goal line, because they use NFL gambling info & NFL betting stats already factored into Las Vegas pro football lines when determining their NFL football picks & predictions each week...

Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 Season Win Total Outlook & Projection:

2013 Pittsburgh Steelers Las Vegas Season Win Total Line;
As of this writing, oddsmakers have the 2013 NFL regular season win total line for the Pittsburgh Steelers set at 9 wins. This number represents a decrease of 1 win from Pittsburgh's prior year regular season win total line of 10, which the Steelers went under, finishing with a record of (8-8).

The Steelers are typically a popular bet to go over the number. But as everyone knows they are dealing with the losses of WR Mike Wallace, LB James Harrison, NT Casey Hampton, RB Rashard Mendenhall, CB Keenan Lewis, G Willie Colon, and T Max Starks.

There is lack of depth at corner, offensive line, and tight end.

The Steelers could use a major contribution from the rookie class. Perhaps that will come from either OLB Jarvis Jones or RB Le'Veon Bell, although effective run blocking may be hard to come by for Bell... Especially in the AFC North where all three division rivals have above average defensive lines or better.

Schedule Analysis:
In 2013 the Steelers find themselves with a Jekyll and Hyde schedule.

While their strength of schedule overall is middle of the road, they will have to play 7 games versus teams that made the playoffs last season (a rather high number of such games).

  • @Cincinnati in week 2
  • @Minnesota in week 4
  • Baltimore in week 7
  • @New England in week 9
  • @Baltimore in week 13
  • Cincinnati in week 15
  • @Green Bay in week 16

And let's add 10 game winner and playoff bubble team Chicago at home in week 3 to the above list of tough games, not to mention up and coming Miami with their new WR Mike Wallace.

However, the Steelers also play 7 games versus teams that had six or fewer wins last season;

  • Tennessee in week 1
  • @NY Jets in week 6
  • @Oakland in week 8
  • Buffalo in week 10
  • Detroit in week 11
  • @Cleveland in week 12
  • Cleveland in week 17

As long as the Steelers can take care of business against last season's bottom dwellers, they would only need a few wins against playoff caliber teams to top this year's Vegas win over/under line.

Record Projection:
In 2013 we project the Steelers to go (8-8), falling short of the Vegas season win total over/under line of 9.

We think too many key players have departed for the Steelers to improve upon last season's record. While this may not be enough to derail the Steelers against most of the lighter competition, it could make it very tough to win against lat season's returning playoff teams.

Of course the Steelers are extrememly well coached, and that could always lead to upside to this projection.
