The Pittsburgh Steelers will be trying to end a three-game straight-up losing streak and maintain a share of first place in the AFC North when they meet the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday as 2.5-point home favorites at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
Pittsburgh’s 4-1 SU start earned it an early divisional lead, but its current slide leaves it trailing the first-place Baltimore Ravens by a half-game going into Sunday afternoon’s Cowboys vs. Steelers betting matchup at Heinz Field.
The Cowboys ride into town on a convincing 7-0 SU and against the spread run that has lifted them to the top of the NFC conference standings.
Dallas is undefeated SU and ATS in four road contests this season, including upset victories in Washington and Green Bay. But the Cowboys have produced mixed results in recent dates with Pittsburgh, losing two of three, SU and ATS, including a 24-20 loss as 3-point underdogs in their last visit in 2008.
Other interconference betting matchups in Week 10 feature the Denver Broncos visiting the New Orleans Saints as three-point underdogs, and the New England Patriots hosting the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football as 7.5-point betting favorites.
The Broncos look to bounce back after being toppled from first place in the AFC West with last week’s 30-20 loss in Oakland as one-point underdogs. Denver has lost three of five since opening with four straight victories and also is 2-3 SU in its past five road dates and 3-4-2 ATS in nine.
The Saints’ potent offense has powered their current 4-1 SU and 5-0 ATS run. New Orleans has tallied 32.6 points per game over the past five games, which includes impressive victories over Carolina and Seattle. However, the Saints have struggled with success, going 1-6 SU in seven games following consecutive victories.
The Saints are also winless SU in their past four against Denver, 1-3 ATS.
Seattle looks to break out of a funk that has left it winless SU in two on the road ahead of the team’s first clash with the Patriots since Super Bowl XLIX. The 5-2-1 Seahawks sit atop the NFC West but have produced a disappointing 3-4-1 ATS record.
The AFC East-leading Patriots have outscored opponents by an average margin of 16.25 points in four straight wins and are 11-3 SU and 10-4 ATS in their past 14 interconference contests.
Elsewhere, the struggling Packers visit the high-powered Tennessee Titans as three-point favorites, the Panthers host the streaking Kansas Chiefs also as three-point chalk and the Cincinnati Bengals battle the New York Giants on Monday night as slender one-point underdogs.
