The Pittsburgh Steelers escaped a serious threat to their undefeated record last week, escaping Dallas with a 24-19 victory to improve to 8-0 for the first time in the franchise’s storied history. Pittsburgh can run it to 9-0 this week when they welcome talented rookie quarterback Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are 10-point underdogs according to the latest NFL odds from William Hill Sportsbook, one of the largest NFL spreads of the week and one of just two to reach double-digits.

Top NFL predictions for Week 10
One of the top Week 10 NFL predictions the model recommends: The visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-6) cover as favorites against the Carolina Panthers. The Buccaneers are 9-2-1 against the spread in their last 12 games following a double-digit loss at home, while quarterback Tom Brady is still shining for the Buccaneers, throwing for 2,398 yards and 20 touchdowns against seven interceptions.
On the other sideline, the Panthers welcomed back superstar running back Christian McCaffrey last week, who romped to 151 yards of total offense and two touchdowns in a last-second, 33-31 loss to the Chiefs. McCaffrey, who had missed several games with a high ankle sprain, injured his shoulder against the Chiefs and is out Sunday.
SportsLine’s model projects that Brady outplays Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and that the Panthers struggle to reach 100 rushing yards without McCaffrey. The model also says Tampa Bay covers in well over 50 percent of simulations. The over (51) has plenty of value because it hits almost 60 percent of the time.
Another one of the top Week 10 NFL predictions from the model: The Saints (-10) cover against the 49ers. After picking up four consecutive wins by one score, New Orleans left no doubt against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers last Sunday night. Drew Brees threw four touchdown passes as the Saints blasted their division foe by five touchdowns to take a half-game lead in the NFC South.
Now, the Saints will look to keep it rolling against a Niners squad that limps into town with a lengthy injury list. San Francisco is 2-4 overall and against the spread in its last six games and will start backup quarterback Nick Mullens against a New Orleans defense that just picked off Brady three times.
SportsLine’s model gives Mullens a higher probability of throwing an interception than a touchdown, while Brees throws for over 250 yards and two scores as the Saints cover in well over 50 percent of simulations. The over (49) also has value since the teams combine to score 54 total points.
