It’s the final week of the NFL regular season, and with the final week comes lots of NFL Odds value! One way to add value to your NFL Picks is to utilize the teaser, and I have done so to give you three -110 wagers, with the six-point teaser.
Colts & Ravens
The Colts are in an interesting spot here. They have already wrapped up the AFC South, which guarantees them a home game, but they can’t move up in the standings unless they win and the Bengals lose. Cincinnati does have a tough game, so one would think that the Colts could want to win this game. On top of the small margin of playoff seeding hope, the Colts have also not played great recently, and might want to use this game against the Titans to get their rhythm heading into the playoffs. Andrew Luck might only play two or three quarters, but I think it will be enough to give Indy the victory. Their NFL odds put them at -1.
The Ravens’ task is simple this week. They need to win and pray that the Chiefs beat the Chargers. Winning for Baltimore might be easiest proposition this week, as they are at home against the Browns. Who knows, and who cares on the starting quarterback for the Browns, the Ravens’ teaser NFL Odds have them down to -3, which should be no problem for a team motivated to get into the playoffs.

Chargers & Cowboys
Speaking of the Chargers, they are my next teaser play. I think San Diego has what it takes to win this game, which makes their teaser value even better. At +4 in the NFL odds, teasing the Chargers to +10 is one of my favorite plays this week. Even if this is a lower scoring game, the underdog will be an even better play. Even if they don’t win, Phillip Rivers will keep this within single digits.
On the other side you have Dallas, who is in a similar spot to the Colts. Dallas can only move up if they win, and the Rams beat the Seahawks in Seattle this week. The winner of the NFC North will be guaranteed a bye because of Dallas’ divisional record of 3-2, so the chances of moving up are slim. However I think the Cowboys can win this game regardless. Teasing them down to a pick em’ is still a great play, because they will want to put the pressure on Seattle in the later game.

Cardinals & Rams
The Cardinals have already clinched a playoff spot, but they should still put up a good fight in this game against the Niners. Ryan Lindley is going to start, putting the rumors of Logan Thomas starting to rest, which gives the Cardinals a chance to cover their teaser odds here. They should try and use this as a playoff preview, and with the struggles of the Niners this season, this one should be close and low scoring.
The Rams are a huge NFL Odds underdogs heading into Seattle this week, and with home field advantage throughout the playoffs within the Hawks’ grasp, sportsbooks have the Rams as +12 ½ underdogs. However teasing them up to +18 ½ is also one of my favorite plays of the week. Seattle is good, but I think the Rams have proven that they aren’t pushovers, especially in divisional games. I expect the Rams to fight hard in this final game of the season, and try to prevent the Seahawks from attaining that home field advantage.
