Each week of the season I’ll be providing readers with what is know as my best NFL Teaser Pick of the Week (below). Jimmy has profited on these bets three of the last four years. Coming into the 2016 season, I’m 35-25 with a profit of +500 units.

I will either provide a 2-team 6-point teaser (-120), 2-team 7-point teaser (-140) or 3-team 10-point teaser (-120). The 6-point teaser requires us to risk 120 units to win 100. For the 10-point teaser we have to lay 120 units to win 100. If you need some help with how to bet these wagers, be sure to check out my NFL teaser strategy guide.

While I pick my favorite, I also provide you with the best teaser odds each week. Those teams listed are based on teasing specific numbers. All of which have provided great long-term results (note: lines are based off of the odds at Bookmaker at the time this article was posted).

Also remember that you need to be able to get the odds listed on each game, or they may fall out of favor of this system.

Why I Like It

Packers: I like the Packers to win outright in Detroit on Sunday, so this is an easy tease for me. If Green Bay were to lose, there’s a good chance it’s by a field goal or less. The Packers are playing their best football of the season right now. Aaron Rodgers is playing at an elite level and will be facing a depleted Lions secondary. Not to mention Matthew Stafford isn’t at 100% with his finger injury. Green Bay only beat Detroit 34-27 in the first meeting, but it wasn’t that close. The Packers had a 31-3 lead in the 1st half. With a playoff spot on the line, I expect Rodgers to deliver here and for Green Bay to take yet another NFC North title.

Bengals: Cincinnati is a team that has continued to play extremely hard, despite not being in the playoff mix. The Bengals nearly upset the Texans last week, with Houston playing to clinch a playoff spot. I look for Cincinnati to lay it all on the line in their home finale here. As for the Ravens, this is a really tough spot for them. Baltimore essentially played in a playoff game last week against the Steelers. Not only did they lose, but they gave up a double-digit lead in the 4th quarter. It’s a almost an impossible spot to play well in and wouldn’t be shocked if the Bengals won in a blowout. Just to be safe, I’ll take the 4.5 with Cincinnati on the tease.

Good luck this week!
