NFL point spread: Browns vs. Steelers, Buffalo at Miami

Betting preview and point spread on the Week 10 NFL games Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins.

NFL point spread: Browns vs. Steelers, Buffalo at Miami Our point spread and odds preview of the Week 10 football games continue with the AFC North top-gun match-up between the Cleveland Browns (5-3) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2). At Bookmaker the Steelers are the odds favorite with a money line -525 and the Browns are listed with betting odds +425. The point spread on the Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game is currently sitting at -10 points chalk the Steelers at Bodog Sports with total at 47.5 points. Betting trends show that Cleveland is 6-1 against the spread in its last 7 games and Pittsburgh is 7-2 ATS in its last 9 games.

 Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was injured during the 38-7 victory against the Ravens last week, but is expected to play on Sunday and strong offense is what the Steelers need in this Week 10 game. Pittsburgh is already leading the NFL in defense with 237.8 yards and 12.3 points allowed on average per game and when Roethlisberger connects with Holmes it would be easy to overcome the 32nd ranked Browns defense, which allows on average 410.9 yards and 29.1 points. The Browns are just a win away from tying with the Steelers in the AFC North, but their weak defense will open plenty of room for Pittsburgh and the Steelers should have no problem covering the -10 point spread on home turf.

 The next Week 10 NFL game we will look at is the Buffalo Bills (4-4) visiting the struggling Miami Dolphins (0-8). Will the Dolphins finally get their first win for the season? The odds makers don't think so. At Bookmaker the Bills are favorite with odds -145 and the Dolphins will be underdog once again with betting odds on winning the game at +125. The point spread on the Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins game is posted at -3 points chalk the Dolphins at Bodog Sports and the total is sitting at 41 points. Buffalo is 5-0 against the spread in its last 5 games and Miami is 1-4 against the spread in its last 5 games at home.

 Buffalo is coming out of a 21-33 win against the Bengals last week and hold the second spot in the AFC East, but with the Patriots atop, there is no room for going higher. At the bottom two spots are the Jets and the Dolphins, who matched up two week sago in London and the Dolphins gave the Jets their only win this season. Even at 0-6 many believed that Miami has given up on this season and is already looking forward to 2008,  and now at 0-8 the only goal the Dolphins have is not to finish 0-16. Statistically the Dolphins have a very good chance of beating the Bills this Sunday, offensively outscoring Buffalo with 322.1 yards and 20.8 points per game, but the Bills allow only 19.5 points compared to Dolphins 30.5 points per game. When the Bills win, they usually do so by an average of a  touchdown and have lined up games against the Pats, Jags and the Redskins, so the visit to Miami is their best chance to get a W before they see some Ls.
