Our teasers this season have been a bright spot on our mid-week NFL Picks, and with only two weeks remaining, it’s that time once again. There are several nice NFL Odds that have even better teaser value, and here are my three best seven and six-point teasers for Week 16.
Chargers & Patriots
The Chargers are coming off a tough loss, they are on a short week, but still they are only +2 NFL odds underdogs against the Niners this week. With the Niners struggling, even at home they don’t concern me, especially against an above average Chargers’ defense. Phillip Rivers should have a much better game this week, and with all of that being said, using a seven-point teaser to move San Diego up to +9 looks like a great bargain. They have enough on both sides of the ball to stay within single digits of San Francisco.
The Patriots may be the best team in the NFL, and even though the Jets are a concern when these two play in New Jersey, the Patriots are a solid teaser value this week. Teasing them down to -4 ½ even on the road is a nice way to cap off my first teaser of the week.

Lions & Saints
The Lions are also on the road this week, as they head into the cold weather of Chicago’s Soldier Field. The NFL Odds have them as a solid -7 favorite coming off of the Bears’ horrible loss to the Saints, and teasing the Lions down to -1 in a six-point teaser is one of my favorite NFL pick of the week. The Bears defense should be torn up by the end of this game. With the Lions’ defense and the Bears’ recent offensive struggles, this is a no-brainer for me.
On the other side is those aforementioned Saints, and they are at home this week against the Falcons. Even though I think this is going to be a better than expected game, the Saints’ teaser value should be enough for them to cash us this teaser. Teasing them down to a pick em’ is a perfect pair for the Lions at -1 this week. Even though neither one of the defenses in this game are going to stop either of the offenses, the Saints have the edge at home. Julio Jones is also banged up and could miss this game, and that would really add value to the Saints at home.

Packers & Bills
The Packers may have had a bad game in Week 15, but in Week 16 they get to travel to Tampa Bay, the perfect get right game. The NFL Odds have them as -10 ½ favorites on the road this week, but teasing them down to -4 ½ is another great teaser value. I see no way the Bucs limit Aaron Rodgers in this one like last week. Look for a big bounce back from the Packers.
The Bills are traveling for their Week 16 game, but they are traveling to Oakland, and after their performance against the Packers last week, they should have no problem limiting the Raiders’ offense. The Bills’ NFL Odds have them as a -6 favorite this week, and teasing them to a pick em’ is virtually a lock to me.
