The Pittsburgh Steelers host the Detriot Lions on Sunday. Here are the odds and predictions for this Week 10 NFL matchup. 

After a 1-3 start to the 2021 season, I don’t think there are many experts out there who would have predicted that the Pittsburgh Steelers would win each of their next four games. Defeating the Browns in Cleveland was a huge divisional win for the team in Week 8, and Mike Tomlin’s team followed that up with a big home win against the Bears on Monday Night Football.

Now the Steelers get what should be their easiest matchup of the season against an 0-8 Detriot Lions team at Heinz Field. The Lions are currently averaging just 16.8 points per game while surrendering 30.5 per contest, according to Team Rankings.

This is a game that everyone has locked down as a win on Pittsburgh’s schedule and they can ill-afford to drop the ball in a contest like this. But will they do enough to cover the spread?

Steelers vs Lions Odds Week 10

The Week 10 betting odds on WynnBET have Pittsburgh as 8.5-point home favorites in this contest. Their moneyline is set at -400 while the Lions are underdogs at +320 odds. The over/under point total for this contest is currently set at 43.0.

Steelers vs Lions Prediction Week 10

The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to win this contest, but blowing teams out has been something this team hasn’t been able to do this year. In fact, the Steelers haven’t had a victory of more than 8 points since Week 11 of the 2020 season against the Jacksonville Jaguars, via Pro Football Reference.

Considering that the Steelers are 8.5-point favorites, it’s hard to predict the over/under for this contest. However, Pittsburgh’s defense is pretty healthy and on the rise, while Ben Roethlisberger and the offense have been a bit more efficient as of late.

While I would be a bit surprised if Pittsburgh scored in the 30s, I do expect them to come away with their fifth-straight victory in Week 10 with a final score of 26-16.
