Pittsburgh Steelers, Seahawks, DraftKings Promo

The first game of the 2022 season in the stadium whose new name people love to hate takes place Saturday when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Seattle Seahawks at 7 p.m. in a preseason contest at Acrisure Stadium. Whatever the name, NFL betting opportunities and DraftKings promo present themselves in the exhibition lid lifter for both teams.

The Steelers and Seahawks are both looking for new quarterbacks. Ben Roethlisberger retried from the Steelers at the end of last season following an 18-year career. Russell Wilson was traded to the Denver Broncos in April after starring for 10 seasons with the Seahawks.

Here are the betting lines for Seahawks-Steelers at Caesars:

Spread: Seahawks +3.5 (-110), Steelers -3.5 (-110)

Moneyline: Seahawks +150, Steelers -185

Over/Under: 35.5 O (-110), 35.5 U (-110)

Pittsburgh Steelers Preview

Mitch Trubisky will start at quarterback for the Steelers. That shouldn’t come as a surprise as he has been getting the most reps with the first team during training camp.

Signed to a two-year, $14-million contract as a free agent in the offseason, Trubisky seems to have the upper hand over veteran holdover Mason Rudolph and first-round draft pick Kenny Pickett in the three-way QB competition.

Trubisky is expected to play the first quarter before yielding to Rudolph. Tomlin’s plan is to have Pickett play the fourth quarter.

Trubisky is expected to play the first quarter before yielding to Rudolph. Tomlin’s plan is to have Pickett play the fourth quarter.

The experience edge goes to Trubisky, who started 50 games with the Chicago Bears in four seasons after being the second overall pick in the 2017 draft. Trubisky spent last season with the Buffalo Bills but attempted just eight passes while backing up Josh Allen.

Rudolph has 10 career starts, including eight in 2019 when Roethlisberger sustained a season-ending elbow injury in Week 2.

Pickett starred at Pitt and finished third in the Heisman Trophy balloting last season. He was only quarterback taken in the first round of this year’s draft.

The Steelers have gone 3-1 in each of the last four preseasons. They have a 34-24 record under Tomlin exhibition games.

Geno Smith and Drew Lock will both see action as they compete to be the Seahawks’ starting quarterback. Coach Pete Carroll said Smith will start and be followed by Lock but would not commit to how much playing team each will get.

Smith, who starred collegiately at West Virginia, started three games for the Seahawks last season when Wilson was injured. Seattle lost two of those games, including falling 23-20 in overtime in Week 6 at what was then known as Heinz Field.

Overall, Smith has made 34 starts in a nine-year career that has included stops with the New York Jets, New York Giants, Los Angeles Chargers and Seahawks.

Lock came to the Seahawks in the Wilson trade. Lock was the Broncos’ second-round draft pick in 2019 and made 21 starts in three seasons for them.

In 2020, Lock started 13 games. However, he lost his starting job to Teddy Bridgewater last year in training camp.

Lock was impressive last weekend in a scrimmage running the second-team offense against the Broncos’ first-team defense. He seemed to close the gap with Smith with that performance.

The Seahawks have gone 26-17 in the preseason under Carroll but were 1-2 in 2021.

Steelers Bets We Like

Seahawks +3.5 (-110) DraftKings

The quarterbacks on both teams have reason to be motivated. However, the competition seems more real with the Seahawks than the Steelers as Trubisky is almost certain to start in Week 1.

Smith and Lock have both been good enough to start in the NFL in the past. That gives the Seahawks an edge in this game.

Under 36.5 (-110) DraftKings

It’s worth noting the under has been the winning side in 13 of the Seahawks’ 19 preseason games since 2016.

Steelers Prediction

Tomlin’s teams tend to win in August, but the experience – and motivation — of Smith and Lock make the Seahawks a live underdog.

Prediction: Seahawks 17, Steelers 14
