With both Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown’s status for Sunday’s Steelers-Broncos divisional playoff game Sunday in limbo, a number of the top online sportsbooks, including our friends at BetOnline, still hadn’t posted a line on this game. 

The official number is Denver -7 with the Broncos seeing the second most action after the Patriots where the line is available for wagering. 

That -7 number is being offered based on the assumption that Roethlisberger will play after suffering a torn ligament in his throwing shoulder. Vegas oddsmakers

Suggest the line would be Denver -10 without Big Ben.

The Linesmakers note there is more to consider even if Roethlisberger does play:

One thing to ponder when dealing with an ailing QB, besides what the adjusted number should be, is how good of a pass rush the opposing defense has. In this instance, Denver just happens to lead the NFL in total defense and sacks.
