  • The Pittsburgh Steelers are +175 to make the postseason in 2024-25.
  • Pittsburgh reached the playoffs in 2020, 2021 and 2023, but never advanced past the first round.
  • Why the Steelers’ strength of schedule makes them a bad bet to reach the playoffs.

Based on NFL odds and Steelers playoff odds, the Pittsburgh Steelers are predicted to miss the postseason this year. 

Pittsburgh is currently +175 to reach the postseason for the second consecutive year. That implies a probability of 36.4%. 

Comparatively, head coach Mike Tomlin’s team is -210 to miss the 2024-25 NFL postseason. That implies a probability of 67.7%. 

Prediction: Will the Pittsburgh Steelers Make the Playoffs?

I agree with the assessment that the Steelers are most likely to miss the postseason this year. 

Based on opponent win totals, Pittsburgh plays the hardest schedule in the 2024-25 NFL season. 

Additionally, regression should be expected from Pittsburgh, who finished 9-2 in games decided by seven or fewer points last season, and earned three of five division wins against backup quarterbacks.
