Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Prop Bets: Is Ben Done?

How much longer will Ben Roethlisberger be the Steelers QB? Check out our Steelers quarterback prop bets page.

Something has got to give. The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback situation has been a hot topic in NFL circles and eastern Pennsylvania pubs for a while now, but allow me to be the first (not) to say: Ben Roethlisberger is washed up. He’s done. The clock struck 12 an hour ago and he’s hanging on to the door frame of the Steelers facility as concerned fans frantically tug at his legs.

So, what’s the solution? The Steelers don’t appear to have an alternative on the roster, with below-average backup Mason Rudolph and recent bust Dwayne Haskins the QBs behind Ben. Do they draft one? Do they sign a free agent? Swing a big trade?

Oddsmakers over at Bovada have released Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback prop bets on who might be the starting QB for the Steelers next season, because surely the Steelers can’t go on like this much longer.

Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Prop Bets: Next QB Possibilities

Ben doesn’t even attempt to throw down the field anymore despite an elite group of receivers. He is averaging just 6.1 yards per attempt – only Jacoby Brissett and Davis Mills average fewer yards per attempt among current starters.

Roethlisberger’s shoulder is clearly shot, and his legs certainly aren’t what they used to be. He’s had an amazing career and will end up in Canton one day, but Ben is giving off serious late-career Eli Manning vibes where the team refuses to address a situation that everyone on the outside knows is a problem. 

Here’s a look at Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback prop bets on who could lead the team next:

Aaron Rodgers (+200)

This is a spicy option to top the board. Rodgers is in somewhat of a “Last Dance” scenario with the Packers right now after an offseason filled with turmoil, contract disputes and public speculation about his future in Green Bay. And while Rodgers has been linked to Denver and other destinations in the past, Pittsburgh would appear to be a perfect fit as a team with weapons in place and a top-notch defense.

Rodgers also spoke glowingly of the city of Pittsburgh and head coach Mike Tomlin in a recent interview that only fanned the flames on this rumor.

Jimmy Garoppolo (+1500)

This one makes a lot of sense as well with Garoppolo’s time in San Francisco likely to end sooner than later after the Niners drafted Trey Lance third overall in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Garoppolo has his limitations, but he is a legitimate starting quarterback who can line up and run an offense. Given the wealth of talent that would be around him in Pittsburgh, he would be set up nicely to succeed and would be an upgrade on everything they currently have.

A Rookie

Whether it’s Strong (+900), Corral (+1000), Willis (+1500) or Howell (+1500), there is a pretty good chance that the Steelers will be in position to take their future QB in next year’s draft. But for the purpose of this prop, it’s anyone’s guess who that quarterback might be. There are a lot of QBs expected to be drafted next year, but the jury is still out on who the good ones actually are.

Best Bet: Rudolph (+400)/Haskins (+600)

The answer to the question of who will start Game 1 for the Steelers next season might not even be on this list. Could Russell Wilson request a trade again? Could Sam Darnold be available if the Panthers draft a QB? What about Deshaun Watson or Tua Tagovailoa?

There’s still a lot up in the air and we’re only through four weeks of the 2021 season.

So for now, sprinkling some money on current backups Rudolph and Haskins makes a lot of sense. With Ben likely retired, one or both of these players is likely to be on the Steelers next season – that’s the first hurdle.

We also think it’s likely that the Steelers draft a QB, but we don’t feel comfortable betting on one over the others, so going with Rudolph/Haskins is a bet that whoever the Steelers land in the draft won’t start Week 1. We think that rookie will be eased into the starting job while one of the vets plays the first couple of games (see: Justin Fields, Trey Lance).

Of course, it’s more fun to bet on Rodgers landing in Pitt for pure chaos.
