It’s another big week of NFL action, and to add some value to your NFL Picks, teasers are a great way to switch up your picks. The NFL Odds are very conducive to teasing this week, and I have three that are great values.
Bears and Browns
The Chicago Bears are playing host to the Bucs this week, and even with the Bears struggling, and NFL Odds have them as a -6 favorite, with a total of 46. This is a great line to tease down to a pick em, because with how bad the Bucs’ defense has been playing, I’m not sure there is any way the Bears can lose this game unless Jay Cutler gets injured or throws four interceptions, or both. Tease them down, and hope for a good game from Cutler.
The Browns are on the road this week in Atlanta, and even with the struggles of the Falcons this season, they are still in the hunt for this awful division, and the NFL Odds have them as a -3 favorite, with a total of 47 points. However teasing up the Browns from +3 to +9 seems like the more logical play this week. The Falcons’ defense has been so bad this season, and with the return of Josh Gordon for the Browns, it gives them an advantage that not many people are talking about.

Packers and Broncos
Green Bay Packers are against the Vikings, and the NFL Odds have them as large -9 ½ favorites, with a total of 48 ½. The best way to tease this game is to drop the Packers’ spread down to -3 ½, or even -3 at some sportsbooks. The Vikings’ defense has been improved this season, but their offense has no chance of keeping this game within a touchdown. Aaron Rodgers is playing out of his mind, and he should have no issues winning this game by a touchdown or more.
For the Broncos, they are coming off of a tough loss, and even with some injury concerns to their receivers; they get the Dolphins this week. Miami’s inconsistency is not going to serve them well against the Broncos’ offense. The NFL Odds have the Broncos as -7, but teasing them down to -1 is almost a given here against Miami on the road.

49ers and Jets
To cap off my Week 12 teasers, I’m starting it off with the Niners, who are -9 favorites in the NFL odds, with a total of 44 points. Teasing the Niners down to -3 is a great value against the Redskins, who have been one of the worst teams in the NFL this season, While it may have more to do with having a new coach and a lot of injuries, the Niners’ defense is going to destroy Robert Griffin III. Tease them down, and lay the points.
Finally, the Monday game that should have been on Sunday is the Jets and Bills, and while Buffalo is snowed in, Detroit will play host to the two New York teams. With the neutral site comes some added advantage for the Jets, and teasing them up to +9 is a great value. The NFL Odds are still dropping after the news of the move of the game to Detroit, and while it may not favor anyone, it definitely gives an advantage to the Jets which is why they're part of the NFL picks.
