Last week, the Patriots didn’t want to see us win. That’s fine. They’ve been eliminated as a result. Now we’ve got eight more teams remaining, and we’ll look to put together the final three-team teaser in the NFL season.
Every week, we’ll share our favorite picks for a 6-point basic teaser in the NFL in this article. It’s also smart to play numbers that make sense. You need to cross key numbers to gain value. Those numbers would be 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 13, 14, 17.
Again, here’s a teaser betting guide from Jason Katz via BettingPros if you aren’t familiar with Teasers.
Special Offer: Bet $10, Win $200 if Either the Packers or 49ers Score a TD >>
Leg #1 Packers +.5
You can get the Packers +.5 using a teaser. If you like the Packers to win outright, this is a quality play to add to your teaser. The Packers are already starting to trend back from -4.5 to 5.5, and if the number starts to get higher, you won’t get this opportunity any longer to take the Packers to win outright.
The Packers haven’t been great against the run this season, but offensively, the Packers will be too much to handle for the 49ers, who absolutely have the worse secondary between the two teams. The 49ers also have a solid pass rush, but with Nick Bosa questionable for this game, the pass rush could take a hit in this game.
Green Bay ultimately has the better defense than San Francisco, and who would you rather back offensively? Aaron Rodgers or Jimmy Garoppolo? It’s Rodgers for me.
Leg #2. Rams +9
I would’ve liked to get a 10 number for the Rams, but there aren’t many games to choose from at this point. The Rams should keep this game tight against the Buccaneers throughout. Ultimately, I like the Rams to win outright, so knowing you can get a +9 for the Rams and have them cover in any one-possession game is awesome.
The Rams finally looked like themselves against Arizona on Monday night. They’ll have one less day to recover, but that shouldn’t matter too much. The Rams front seven should dominate a banged-up offensive line for the Buccaneers, and the reality is that the Buccaneers still don’t have a great wide receiver group.
Leonard Fournette will return to action and could be a huge portion of the offense, but if the Rams keep everything in front of them, the Buccaneers will finally fold against the Rams.
Leg #3. Bills +7.5
Even if the Bills lose by seven, we’ll win this bet. Ultimately, I like the Bills to win outright, but getting a +7.5 number works just fine as well.
The Bills beat up the Chiefs earlier this season and look to have the best defense in the NFL right now. The running game for the Bills should be unstoppable against a poor rushing defense in Kansas City.
While Kansas City has improved a ton since that big loss earlier this season, I still think the Bills present matchup problems for the Chiefs. The Chiefs really couldn’t get big gains down the field against the Bills, and the Bills got whatever they wanted against the Chiefs. So I’m rolling with the Bills here.
