Patriots vs. Steelers NFL Week 10 Sports Picks, NFL Odds & NFL Predictions: History will be on the side of the New England Patriots (6-2) as they visit the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2) in a NFL predictions battle of first place AFC teams in the marquee sports picks match-up of week ten of the NFL predictions season. The Steelers have not defeated a Tom Brady-quarterbacked team since October 31, 2004, and the Pats hold a 5-2 sports picks series edge, including two AFC championship game wins since 2001. Vegas odds makers, though, have picked the Steelers as +4½(-110) point NFL predictions favorites at home.
New England lost 34-14 to the Cleveland Browns in a NFL predictions contest last week, snapping a five-game winning streak. The Patriots should be in a bad mood when they come to Pittsburgh dragging around a defense that has given-up 20+ points in five NFL picks contests and is ranked 29th in the NFL in passing defense. The defense has given-up 13 TD passes against just nine interceptions and has routinely allowed opponents to run effectively. Brady has been as good as ever this NFL predictions season, though the names of his main weapons have changed. Rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez leads the team in receiving yardage while WR Brandon Tate has provided some big plays.
To defeat New England in today's NFL picks contest, the Steelers must stop Brady and his passing game. Pittsburgh, however, is ranked at the bottom of the league in passing yardage allowed, though they have given-up just 8 TD passes against 11 interceptions. Troy Polamalu should be key in this NFL week 10 sports picks contest as he is responsible for defending the middle of the field, either on Hernandez or Wes Welker. Pittsburgh offense must also score points and Ben Roethlisberger could have a big night against the secondary of New England. Look too for Rashard Mendenall to have plenty of running room in tonight's featured NFL week 1- sports picks contest.
This is Pittsburgh’s NFL predictions match-up to win but watch-out for Brady, who has a knack of beating the Steelers. New England will beat the Vegas spread, but the Steelers pull out the slim win on SNF.
