You may remember last season that one of our weekly NFL features covered the best teams to tease. It was a popular feature and is back in 2015.
First off, I want to talk about where to bet on NFL teasers. 5Dimes offer the best NFL teaser payout odds in 2015 and the sportsbook offers teasers between 4.5 and 19 points.
So, join 5Dimes (US-friendly) and get ready to make money betting teasers all season.
Best NFL Week 1 Games to Tease
Week 1 is always tough and there are some close point spreads, so for this week, I’ve decided to wager on a pair on 7-point teasers. Make sure you select “Ties Win” for your teasers.
- Kansas City Chiefs +7 vs. Houston Texans
Who do you trust to manage a game better – Alex Smith or Brian Hoyer? Who will contribute more offensive production in this game – Jamaal Charles or Alfred Blue?
Answer those two questions and you’ll want to bet on the Chiefs at +7 on teasers too. Houston’s Arian Foster is injured, so the Texans are relying on Hoyer and Blue in this game.
Don’t forget – Andre Johnson is gone as well — while the Chiefs picked up Jeremy Maclin. The road team is 5-1 ATS in the last six H2H meetings and that trend will continue.
- New York Giants +14 vs. Dallas Cowboys
I love the Giants at +14, especially considering ties win. I have a feeling Dallas is going to have a rough season after getting rid of DeMarco Murray, despite maintaining the best o-line in the NFL.
Darren McFadden isn’t all of a sudden going to become elite again.
I expect the two QB’s (Tony Romo & Eli Manning) and the two superstar WR’s (Dez Bryant and Odell Beckham Jr.) to battle it out in a close NFC East match-up. This game ends within a TD.
The last time the Cowboys beats the Giants by more than two TD’s was way back in 2003.
- Atlanta Falcons +10 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Matt Ryan at the Georgia Dome getting +10 points on an NFL teaser? Sure, I’ll jump on that in a heartbeat. The Falcons are still a scary threat at home and the team is healthy.
Julio Jones is going to be a huge game and even players like Roddy White and Devin Hester will have success on the Eagles secondary. Both teams will score points in this match-up.
Chip Kelly still plans on airing it out and playing fast, but the Eagles may slow the pace down a bit with Murray at RB. The Falcons are one team that can keep up with Kelly’s offense.
I believe we’ll see a back and forth shootout with one of these teams winning by a FG.
- Chicago Bears +14 vs. Green Bay Packers
Jordy Nelson is done for the season, so that puts a wrench into the Packers plans.
Aaron Rodgers can make most WR’s in the NFL look great, so I’m sure GB will still have one of the best offenses in the NFL, but they won’t rank 1st in the NFL again (30.4 PPG in 2014).
Alshon Jeffrey is questionable for the Bears, which worries me, but I expect both of these teams to grind it out on the ground with Matt Forte and Eddie Lacy.
This is a big rivalry game and at Soldiers Field, so the Bears will hang around.
Don’t forget ties win, so they can lose by two TD’s and the teaser still wins.
