Why Bet On the LA Rams?
There are a handful of good reasons to back Los Angeles in this contest. First, the Rams should be feeling good after winning two straight including a 24-10 win over Cincinnati two weeks ago. Then, there’s the fact that L.A. is well-rested after getting a bye last weekend. The Rams are also ranked an encouraging eighth in scoring (26.8 ppg) and decent 15th in points allowed (21.8 ppg) and they’ve gone 3-1 in four road dates this season.

Why Bet On Pittsburgh?
There are also a handful of good reasons to back Pittsburgh in this Week 10 matchup. The Steelers have gotten their act together by winning three straight following a very rough start. More importantly, Pittsburgh has recorded two of their last three wins over ‘good’ teams by beating the Chargers almost a month ago and taking out Indianapolis 26-24 last weekend. While the Steelers are ranked a modest 18th in scoring (22.0 ppg) and 13th in points allowed (21.1 ppg), they’ve also watched the growth of second-year quarterback Mason Rudolph. The former Oklahoma State star is completing 66.1 percent of his passes with 10 TD passes and just four interceptions in five starts. Last but not least, Pittsburgh has won two straight home games and three of four this season overall.

Rams vs Steelers Expert Analysis and Prediction
While Pittsburgh is playing well and playing at home in this Week 10 matchup, I’m going with the LA Rams to get the outright road win and narrow ATS cover. The Steelers have gone 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games against a team with a winning road record. Conversely, the Rams are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games and a near-perfect 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a bye week.
While Los Angeles has gone an uninspiring 1-4 ATS in their last five dates against Pittsburgh, the Rams are now the better team in this pairing, not to mention the fact that the reigning NFC champs are well-rested and quite motivated to stay within striking distance of NFC West-leading San Francisco (8-0) and second place Seattle (7-2). LA wins and narrowly covers the spread.
Pick: LA Rams 28 Pittsburgh 23
