All of these 2-team, and 6-point teasers payout as a straight -110 bet for your NFL Picks.
Which sportsbooks do we think offer the best football Teaser odds?
Chargers & Titans
Like the Packers and Cardinals last week, a 6-point teaser was more than enough to cover with those two last week, and I think the Chargers and Titans have similar potential in Week 2. The Chargers do have to travel all the way to Philly for the game. However it is early in the season, and I don’t think a Week 2 game across the country hurts as much as a Week 12 trip. San Diego looked good in the first 40 minutes of their game against the Texans, and they could easily stay within two touchdowns of the Eagles, a team that could very well be overvalued after their convincing Week 1 win.
The Titans get to face the Texans this week, and the NFL odds for a 6-point teaser at Pinnacle brings them to +16 ½ underdogs against their divisional rival. The Titans are a lot better than the team that went into Houston last season and got drilled by over 20 points. Plus, Houston’s running game is not where it was a season ago with Arian Foster still making his return. Tennessee’s defense has gotten better as well, and I think they will show it in a low scoring game, where they should cover 16 ½ points.
My Pick: Chargers +15 and Titans +16 ½ @ Pinnacle
Panthers & Cowboys
Carolina was impressive against the Seahawks despite losing, and this week even though they’re on the road, their defense is good and they are playing a rookie quarterback. Their teaser odds are a perfect +3 on the road this week, and I am taking it. Carolina should win this game, and I could easily see some points scored by both sides. That’s why I also like the teaser price of the total in their game as well.
The Cowboys are playing against a very good Chiefs team, and even though some say the Cowboys are now due for a down week, I think teasing them up to +9 underdogs is as much value was we can squeeze out of them this week. KC could easily beat the Cowboys by double figures, but I can put some stock in Dallas for this game, and their ability to get back door covers. I think this might be a very low scoring game as well.
Bears & Saints
The Bears had an impressive comeback win last week, and everyone including myself may have seriously undervalued them this season. Now they play against a much less impressive Vikings team, a team they can beat. Teasing them down to a pick em' is great value for them at home, because it seems as if the Vikings have seriously regressed on both sides of the ball, outside of the steady legs of Adrian Peterson of course. If the Bears can keep AP from popping off 73-yard touchdown runs on the opening series, I think Chicago’s got this game.
The Saints are another team on the road in this one and teasing them to field goal underdogs is also a nice value. They have scored over 34 points per game in three straight against the Bucs, and not even the Tampa defense will be enough to stop Sean Payton, even though New Orleans is on the road. The Bucs have serious offensive issues, and I don’t think they’ll be able to score more than three or four times against a shaky Saints defense.
My Pick: Bears pick em’ & Saints +3 @ Bookmaker
