After a few days of sporadic announcements of dates paired with games, the National Football League finally released its 2022 regular season schedule in its entirety Thursday night.
And then oddsmakers went to work. By morning, anyone interested in jumping right away into NFL betting had virtually every point spread, over-under and moneyline to inspect.
So, what does that mean for the home teams in Pennsylvania sports betting?
Here is how DraftKings Sportsbook sizes up the week-by-week schedules of the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers with (left to right) week of season, team (point spread, moneyline), opponent, date and time listed.
Philadelphia Eagles 2022 Schedule
In all, the Eagles will play nine home games and eight road games, including three in a row away from Lincoln Financial Field in Weeks 14-16, culminating with a Christmas Eve battle at the home of the hated Dallas Cowboys.
FanDuel Sportsbook sees the Eagles as a +3500 long shot to win the Super Bowl, which is 13th overall in the 32-team NFL behind the favorite, the Buffalo Bills (+650).
BetMGM isn’t as high on the Eagles. They have the Eagles at +4000, tied for 20th in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings, and with the Bills favored again at +650.
The Eagles did reload at the NFL draft with the addition of Georgia defenders Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean and a trade for wide receiver A.J. Brown.
The Eagles’ schedule is highlighted by some familiar faces as former quarterback Carson Wentz returns to Lincoln Financial Field with the Washington Commanders in Week 10 on Nov. 14. The Eagles visit Washington on Sept. 25.
Doug Pederson, the only head coach to lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl victory, will return to Linc with his new team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, in Week 4 on Oct. 2.
Pittsburgh Steelers 2022 Schedule
The Steelers enter the season with a lot to prove, as the oddsmakers clearly are not impressed for their first season in ages without Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback.
Fan Duel has the Steelers at +8000 to win the Super Bowl, which is tied for 25th with the lowly New York Giants.
It isn’t much better at BetMGM, which has the Steelers at +6600, 23rd best in their estimation.
It figures to be offseason acquisition Mitchell Trubisky or Kenny Pickett at QB. Pickett, out of the University of Pittsburgh, was the Steelers’ first-round draft choice.
The Steelers open at the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 11.
