-10 is to the right on a number line, thus it is "more".

And WolframAlpha agrees, see below.

The problem with using English words in regards to math is that the words are ambiguous, vague, and can be easily misunderstood. Bigger can mean "greater value" or in absolute size like absolute value of each.
