NFL Week 1 Betting Preview: Steelers currently 2.5-point underdogs vs the 49ers

The Pittsburgh Steelers are opening the NFL season in Pittsburgh for the first time since the 2014 season. After opening on the road for eight-straight years, the Steelers now have a new streak as this will be the third-straight season they face an opponent in Week 1 who played in their respective Conference Championship game the previous year.

When it comes to the betting lines for Sunday’s game, the following information is the current consensus spread and over/under for the Steelers this week as reported by DraftKings Sportsbook.


Game Info: Week 1

Pittsburgh Steelers vs San Francisco 49ers
Sunday, Sept. 10, 2023 at 1:00 PM

Betting line: +2.5

Over/under: 41

Last Regular Season Meeting: Steelers (L) 24-20 vs 49ers

Win streak: 1 games SF

Last 3 Meetings: PIT 1 – 2 SF

Last 10 Meetings: PIT 4 – 6 SF


The opening line on the game was at +3 after the schedule was announced in May. Throughout the offseason and preseason games, the line has mostly held steady.

Being the underdog on Sunday, the Steelers have a current moneyline of +120 to win the game straight up, which is the equivalent of 6/5 odds. So a $20 bet placed on the Steelers over the 49ers would have a payout of $44 ($24 plus the original $20 bet). The 49ers have a current moneyline of -142, or 50/71 odds. Therefore the same $20 bet placed on San Francisco to win straight up would have a payout of $34.08 ($14.08 plus the original $20 bet).

The Steelers are 6-1 against the spread in their last 7 games and are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games versus NFC opponents. The Steelers also have gone UNDER in 4 of their last 6 games and have gone OVER in 5 of their last 5 games at home against San Francisco.

If looking at the futures bets at DraftKings.com, the Steelers odds to win the Super Bowl are at 50/1 to start the season. The Steelers odds to win the AFC Championship are 30/1 odds. As for winning the AFC North, the Steelers are currently at 5/1 odds behind the Browns at 4/1 odds, the Ravens at 47/20, and the Bengals as the favorite at 7/5 odds.
