We're in Week 14 in the NFL and our trust handicapper has some great NFL teaser picks for you right here!
I went 2-1 last week with my teasers, and only the Saints stopped me from going 3-0 in my Week 13 Teaser picks. This week’s NFL Odds are just as nice for teaser value, and I am back once again with three more two-team teasers, that payout at most sportsbooks as a straight wager, -110. Let’s see if we can have yet another winning week in teaser-land.
Jaguars & Ravens
The Jags kick off Week 14 with a home game against the only team with a worse record than them, the Houston Texans. The NFL Odds have the Jags as home underdogs in this one of +3 ½, and frankly I can’t believe it. This team has won three of their last four games SU, and still they get no respect. One of those wins was two weeks ago in Houston, and if the Jags’ defense has another game like that, then the teaser value with the Jags is through the roof. I am all over the Jags tonight at their teaser price of +9 ½.
The Ravens are also at home, but they play this Sunday against the Vikings, another hopeless top 5 pick in next April’s draft. The Ravens are a -7 favorite, but teasing them down to -1 is all we need to add to Jacksonville. The Ravens’ defense should limit the Matt Cassel-led Vikings, and with the playoffs still well within their sights, I see the Ravens putting away the Vikings with ease.

Bengals & Bills
The Bengals helped us cash a nice underdog moneyline parlay last week, and this week I am calling on them to help us in teaser-land. Cincinnati is a -6 favorite against the Colts at home this week, and with how bad the Colts’ defense has been playing, I can’t see how anyone could not love the Bengals as a pick em. The loss of Reggie Wayne has turned the Colts from AFC Title contender to a likely first-round out in the playoffs, and Cincinnati has a chance to move ahead of them in the standings this week with a win. I see it happening.
The Bills are somewhat of a stretch this week, but they are on the road in Tampa as +2 ½ underdogs. Teasing them up to +8 ½ should be solid value, especially if their offense continues to play like is has over the last two weeks. EJ Manuel has been getting better each week since returning from injury, and the behind their stellar running attack, the Bills have scored over 30 points per game in their last two games. Look for them to cover +8 ½ in Tampa, if not win outright.

Cardinals and Seahawks
I would also be willing to swap the Cardinals and Bills to have the two road teams in the same teaser, but I like the combination of NFC West teams here, who both have divisional games. Because divisional games are so fluky sometimes, I like to keep them together here. The Cards should dominate the Rams in Arizona this week, and even though I don’t expect a blowout, I could easily see the Cards pulling away at the end. Ever since the Cards’ offense showed up, this is a new team, and they are still well within the playoff picture in the NFC. A win this Sunday along with a 49ers loss to the Seahawks would tie the Cards with San Francisco. Unfortunately for the Cards, the Niners would own the tiebreaker. However as I have mentioned before, the Cards get the Niners in Arizona in Week 17.
The Seahawks have now proven they are the best team in the NFC, and they might be the best in the NFL. They are on the road in San Francisco this week, and the NFL Odds have them as +2 ½ underdogs. Teasing them up to +8 ½ seems like a great add to this teaser, as normally these two team’s games are close. Look for the contest to finish as a one-possession game, which would mean our NFL pick is very valuable.
