Rams vs. Steelers Week 10 Prediction
The Steelers got back to .500 with a win over the Colts last week, while the Rams had their bye after beating the Bengals in London two Sundays ago. Pittsburgh is catching four points as a home dog but is the betting value with L.A.?
269 Los Angeles Rams (-4) at 270 Pittsburgh Steelers (+4); O/U 43

Los Angeles Rams Fantasy Spin
Rams coach Sean McVay said Brandin Cooks (concussion) won't play in Week 10 against the Steelers. Cooks will see a specialist in Pittsburgh this week but won't stick around for kick-off. Cooks shouldn't be considered an option for the rest of the season as he continues to seek out numerous opinions to further look into his concerning history of concussions. Josh Reynolds will slide into his spot, as he did on 89 percent of Los Angeles' snaps in London.
Pittsburgh Steelers Fantasy Spin
JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) is questionable for the Steelers' Week 10 matchup against the Bengals. JuJu dealt with a toe injury earlier in the season and may have re-aggravated the issue. Ryan Switzer would likely work as the offense's primary slot WR if Smith-Schuster is ultimately sidelined, but Diontae Johnson and James Washington would likely see the biggest target boosts. Still, every pass catcher involved in this offense holds a low floor with Jaylen Samuels (13 targets in Week 9) largely functioning as Mason Rudolph's primary target.
NFL Betting Trends
The Rams are 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 games overall and are 4-1 against the number in their last five games coming off a win.
The Steelers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall and are 7-2-1 at the betting window in their last 10 games coming off a win.
The Steelers have one of the better defensive lines in football, which spells trouble for this Rams squad that has had all sorts of issues along its offensive line this season. Jared Goff is not a mobile quarterback, so when he’s under siege, there’s not much he can do. I like Pittsburgh to get after Goff, to keep Sean McVay’s running game in tact and to do just enough offensively to keep this game within a field goal. Four points is just way too many to lay on a Rams team that was struggling mightily offensively before getting to cupcake defenses in Cincinnati and Atlanta over the past three weeks.
