Teasers are as popular as ever, but my biggest concern is that most people don’t think about whether or not they are actually a good bet. I wanted to find out just what lines were best for three-team 10-point teasers.

I looked at every college football game since 1989 to find how often all teams would have covered a teaser at that number.  Then I calculated the cover rate and compared it to the winning percentage needed to profit based on normal three-team 10-point teaser odds (-120) at which you would need to hit at a 81.68% rate or better to show a profit. Cover rates that hit above that percentage have been highlighted for your convenience.
