The 4-4 Pittsburgh Steelers host the 7-1 Dallas Cowboys at Heinz Field Sunday in Week 10 NFL action. Based solely on records, this game is a no-brainer. The Steelers have dropped three games in a row, while the Cowboys haven’t lost since Week 1.
However, on paper, there is talent all across the board for both teams. Each offense has a plethora of weapons at their disposal, with defenses capable of winning games, and also capable of losing them.
In regards to Las Vegas, they surprisingly see the Steelers as home favorites in this classic inter-conference matchup. In fact, with Pittsburgh opening as 3-point favorites, the line hasn’t adjusted too much with most books still having Pittsburgh favored by 2.0 or 2.5-points.
Vegas must see something most others don’t, but what about those experts who submit weekly picks? Who do they have winning this Week 10 game? Time to take a look...
