What is a Teaser Bet?
A Teaser bet allows you to adjust the point spread (or total) of any game. Common football teasers are 6, 6.5, and 7 point teasers meaning you can adjust the spread (in your favor) by 6, 6.5, or 7 points. . So if a team is +7 points and you bet a 7 point teaser they now become +14. Or if a team is -10 and you bet a 7 point teaser they now become -3. The catch is you have to bet at least two games and you get odds of slightly below even money (depending on if you choose a 6, 6.5, or 7 point teaser).
Houston Texans (+8) at Baltimore Ravens(-8); Total 45
Miami Dolphins (+7) at New York Jets (-7); Total 42.5
I will be taking the Baltimore Ravens (-2) and the New York Jets (-1) in a 2 team 6 point teaser. In the first matchup we have a rested Ravens team coming off a bye facing a banged up a Texans squad. The Texans will be without their best defensive player (LB Mario Williams) and their best offensive player (WR Andre Johnson) for this game. Even QB Matt Schaub missed practice on Wednesday with a sore throwing shoulder. Schaub will play this week. The Ravens have been great with an extra week of rest going 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games off a bye week. Tough spot for the Texans here this week. I’ll take the Ravens -2 (teased 6 points from -8) as my first pick in my 2 team 6 point teaser.
The Monday night game features a battle of two struggling teams in the Dolphins and Jets. The Dolphins are coming off a bye week but they are 0-4 on the season and are without their QB Chad Henne. QB Matt Moore will be under center for the Fish this week. The Jets are coming off a 3 game road losing streak vs. Baltimore, Oakland, and New England. At 2-3 the Jets badly need a win to stay in the playoff chase. Expect a much better effort from Rex Ryan’s squad back on their home turf this week against a lesser opponent without their #1 QB. I’ll take the Jets -1 (teased 6 points from -7) as my secong game in my 2 team 6 point NFL teaser at Bodog for 1.91.
