It’s a huge week of NFL action, and with only four weeks to go, every game and every NFL Odd is magnified. With that being said, a good way to shake up your NFL Picks is through the teaser, and I have found three six-point combinations that look extra valuable.
Ravens & Rams
My first play of the week is the Ravens, who are currently +3 road dogs heading into Miami this week to play the Dolphins. While Miami has been much better this season, and barring another collapse could be in the playoffs, they are in a tough spot against the Ravens this week Baltimore is slightly undervalued in these NFL odds, and teasing them up to +9 looks like a great bargain. If both defenses are out in force, this could be a lower scoring game, and that will lead to the Ravens being an even better teaser bet at +9.
For the Rams, they are in Washington, D.C. this week to play the Redskins, and despite the Skins looking better under Colt McCoy, St. Louis’ defense will be too much for the Skins. As long as the Rams cannot turn the ball over and bring their defense, this is an easy play for me to tease St. Louis to +3 ½, even though it is crossing the zero thresholds.

Texans & Chiefs
Houston is in Jacksonville this week after Ryan Fitzpatrick’s amazing Week 13 performance, and even though the Jaguars are improving on the defensive end, I see the Texans walking away with the win in this one. Houston’s pass rush is going to be too much for young rookie, Blake Bortles, and as long as the Texans’ offense can roll like it did this past week, they are going to have to problems beating the Jags. The NFL Odds tease down to a pick em’.
For the Chiefs, they are on the road in Arizona this week, but with the Cardinals’ quarterback issues, as well as the injury to Larry Fitzgerald, they are vulnerable. They lost this past week to the Falcons on the road, and even at home against the Chiefs, I am taking the points with KC. Teasing the Chiefs up to +7 is a great bargain this week.

Broncos & Packers
For my final teaser of the week I’m going with a couple of large favorites, and teasing them down a bit. The Broncos are playing host the Bills this week and as -10 favorites, and even though the Bills’ defense has been very good this season, as long as the Broncos’ can keep Peyton Manning upright, they should cover their teaser NFL Odds. At -3 ½, the Broncos’ should have no issues keeping down Buffalo in this game.
For the Packers, their NFL Odds have them as huge -12 or even -13 favorites on Monday Night Football against the Falcons, this even after the Falcons took care of the Cardinals this past week, the best team in the NFL based on record. However the Packers had an even more impressive win against the Patriots, and the NFL Odds reflect that. Teasing them down to -6 against a team that has one of the worst defenses in the NFL could be a great value.
