    Oh a few ways although rather unlikely...Chicago winning by 17(maybe an extra defensive td or something). Same with Denver winning by 17 somehow late. The other 2 games should be rather safe since both are also good defensive teams but you never know with Manning and Indy how many points they throw up on scoreboard ;p

    How much does that payout? Think the most I can tease on my site is +10 and only up to 3 teams max. I just tried that with a 4 teamer with +7 and it pays out 1 to win 2. So +13 is something under even I'd imagine?

    EDIT: looked it up on one website and they have it as "13 to win 10". Damn, that is pretty good if that is the case. I'd say this is about a 90% sure bet....75% sure at worse. Looks like a good value to me.

    Chris in regard to your comment:
    "I'd say this is about a 90% sure bet....75% sure at worse. Looks like a good value to me"

    This is why they are called "teasers." The odds might seem great but actual odds on winning that bet would be about the same as placing a single bet at -120 (odds may vary slightly from book to book of course).

    Just under even money - I think it's good value for the amount of points. You can definately get screwed, but it's the playoffs and thats a ton of points. Jump on the wagon and win some CASH.

    Speaking of teasers, there is a good one available tonight.
    Detroit -1, San Antonio pick, and Memphis -0.5, all tonight.

    Yes, yes I realize...prime exhibit #1 last week was underdog Carolina winning 24-0...and also New England on the favorite side winning 28-3 without even playing that well. Those would have blown up teaser picks.

    But this week those do appear to be all damn good picks...underdogs who are all great defensive teams. Playoff games in general are defensive grudge matches and any team who gets a decent sized lead will try to eat up clock.

    Although one could perhaps argue Colts +3.5 is a great pick too...I don't see them losing and if by some miracle they do, you can still have them lose by a field goal. What would be more likely, Colts winning by 24 or more points or Colts losing by more than 3? Tough call.

    Which of the top sportsbooks offers those 13 point teasers and have best odds? I definitely may have toss a unit or 2 on this.

    My opinion is the Colts are more likely to win by more than 23 than to lose by more than 3.5. I'd rather have Chicago +10 also, but I think that one wins either way.
