After a successful Week 7 of NFL picks, I am back again with some more great ways to add value to your Sunday plays. Below are three of my favorite six-point teasers this week, and with the year approaching the halfway point, teasers are great ways to add NFL odds value.
Chargers and Ravens
I’m going with a couple of road teams for my first teaser, and for San Diego, teasing them up to +14 is a great way to shake up your NFL picks. Everyone is in love with Peyton Manning and the Broncos, but on a short week anything can happen. This should be a close game regardless of who wins, and even with their lesser stable of skill players, the Chargers can hold on versus the Broncos.
For the Ravens, even though it looks as if AJ Green might return this week for the Bengals, you can’t trust Cincinnati right now. At +1, teasing the Ravens up to +7 is a great value for teaser odds. This line was at +2 ½ and has been steadily bet down to +1, which is a sign that we might be on the right side here.

Texans and Patriots
Normally I hate crossing zero with one of my teaser plays. It normally doesn’t work out well. However this week the Texans are in Tennessee, and they may be getting Jadeveon Clowney back from his Week 1 injury. Even though he might not start, I’d be surprised if he didn’t make an impact on this game. The Titans can’t run the ball, and teasing the Texans from -1 to +5 is a solid value on the road against one of the worst teams in the NFL right now.
The Patriots are at home welcoming in the Bears this week, and even though all of the Bears’ wins have come on the road this season, teasing the Patriots down to a pick em is the best play for this game. I love the Bears, but I can’t trust them with a two-dollar bill right now. They collapse in the second half and the Pats have been playing a lot better over the last two or three weeks. You just can’t take the points with Chicago here, even though either side of this teaser could very easily cash.

Rams and Packers
The St. Louis Rams are for real! Well, maybe not playoff real, but before the season I warned everyone not to overlook this team, and even with all of their injuries, their group of very young players are starting to get it done. It starts on defense, and while playing like they are, teasing them up to +13 is a no-brainer for your NFL picks this week. The Battle of Missouri will surely be close, and I bet there will be plenty of Rams fans that make the three-hour drive West to Kansas City.
Sunday night should be just as entertaining, as the Packers head into New Orleans to play the struggling Saints. Lucky for them no one is playing particularly well in the NFC South, but with Green Bay as +2 NFL odds underdogs, teasing them to +8 is a great play against the horrific Saints defense. Dax may have to break out the paper bag after this week, because the Packers are starting to hit their stride offensively.
