Week 9 is another short week with a lot of teams on bye, however there is still a nice abundance of NFL Odds to chose from. Using the 6-point teaser, I have found three more straight wagers to add to your NFL Picks this week.
Which sportbooks do we think offer the best football teaser odds
Bengals & Chiefs
The biggest question for the Bengals this week is once again whether or not AJ Green is healthy enough to play. He is back at practice on a limited basis, but since this has been a reoccurring injury, the Bengals are going to be as cautious as possible with their loan stud receiver. However this week they are playing the Jaguars, and their NFL Odds are favoring them at -11. However teased down to -5, the Bengals are a good play regardless if Green plays or not. If he does, it just adds more value to this play, but even without him, the Bengals can beat the Jags on the road.
The Chiefs are also a big favorite in the Week 9 NFL Odds, however they are playing at home against the Jets. It should be a titan clash between one of the league’s best rushing games against the team with one of the better rushing defenses. However while I would be hesitant to wager on the Chiefs at -9 ½, I’ll certainly lay the -3 ½ in the second leg of this teaser.
My Pick: 2-team teaser: Bengals -5 & Chiefs -3 ½
Chargers & Seahawks
San Diego is on the road this week in Miami, and the NFL Odds at most online sportsbooks have them as a +2 ½ road underdog. Sure the Dolphins have been playing better, but if this game gets to be a shoot out, my money is on the Chargers at the very least being able to keep the game within one score. Earlier in the week the NFL Odds were lower at +1, and I doubt I would have taken that play. However now being able to tease them to +8 ½ from +2 ½ is a steal.
The Seahawks have been struggling, and it looks as if the NFC is up for grabs. They edged out the Panthers last week, and now they welcome in the Rams to Century Link Field. Even though they don’t look like the same team, either side of this teaser looks good. The Rams would become +21 underdogs in a six-point teaser, while the Seahawks would become -9 favorites. I personally like the Seahawks side more, but either one should bring a pretty good value for your NFL picks.
My Pick: 2-team teaser: Chargers +8 ½ & Seahawks -9
Ravens & Colts
Even though I have just the Ravens listed above, the Steelers are going to play a big part in one of my favorite teasers this week. The NFL Odds have this game with a 48-point total, and teased down to 42, this one is a steal for the over. Normally these two teams are known for their defenses, but this year their offenses have been a bigger story, and it might show here on Sunday. I see a back and forth high-flying game, where both teams have well over 20 points.
On the other side is the Monday night conclusion of Week 9, as the Colts battle the Giants in New York. Normally I don’t like crossing zero, but in this case I am willing to do it. The Giants will be without Rashad Jennings once again according to reports out of New York, and that will hurt them against the Colts. On the Indianapolis side, they have some good news on the injury front, as Reggie Wayne and Vontae Davis might play this week. Plus they may also be getting back LaRon Landry, which would really help them here. Overall teasing them to +3 is a solid bet regardless of crossing zero.
My Pick: 2-team teaser: Ravens/Steelers OVER 42 & Colts +3
