Betting NFL teasers is just not getting more or fewer points on a spread wager, it is also about creating value going against key numbers. This is the real secret to beating the oddsmakers numbers.

For example this week, now maybe you really like Dallas at -2 over Denver on the road. The Cowboys have a splendid 17-7-1 ATS record against the AFC, which makes them real enticing. But let's consider the alternative. What about the Broncos at +8 on the teaser line? Now we plow through key numbers of 3,6 and 7 and have Denver with their defense, at home and at a delectable price.

When making teaser bets, it is recommended to keep them at either two or four picks, because anything above that is very difficult to beat the NFL odds and as many football bettors know, nothing more frustrating than being 6-1 on teaser and losing.

Here are my top NFL picks on teasers and you if they make sense to you, you can make them in various combinations.


Baltimore Taken From -7.5 to -1.5 over Cleveland

As I have mentioned here and other spots, the Ravens could have one of the best defenses in the NFL this season unless they are afflicted by injuries. We know Cleveland will be among the weakest clubs in the league and while they are always motivated to face Baltimore, they have a very low win probability for this contest. Being able to slide under 7, 6 and 3 is big help and the only way we lose with the Ravens winning is if the outcome is by one point. The Birds are 31-3 on the teaser line in September home games.

Carolina Taken From -7 to -1 over Buffalo

I am very bullish on Carolina this season. They ended up having a severe case of Super Bowl hangover and hardly played with any passion all season. Collectively, the Panthers mindset is more stable and they still have the talent to make a playoff run. Buffalo defeated the New York Jets, but that does not prove much and the Bills are still woefully short on offense playmakers. Again, we dive through key numbers and essentially just need Carolina to win.

New England Taken From -6.5 to -0.5 over New Orleans

The Patriots sure looked lousy in their season opener against Kansas, City, however, the reports of the Saints defense being improved were definitely not true as Minnesota went up and down the field. While I am not thrilled New England has gone up two points on the actual point spread, it does not real hurt us in teasers, as they just have to win and are 25-2 against a teaser line after being outgained by 150 or more total yards.

49ers/Seahawks Teaser Total

Coming into this NFC West clash, we know three things: San Francisco will struggle to score, Seattle's offense line is a wreck and the Seahawks defense will be stingy. With the total at 42.5, we can go all the way up to 48.5 and bet the UNDER on teaser. In these teams last 10 meetings, the Niners have average 12.1 PPG. With the Seattle offense still be sorted out, my project range of points for them is 25 to 35. Thus, even if we have what would be thought of as a poor outcome of 35-13, we still win.
