As many of you know, this NFL season has been like the ones from 2000 to 2011, where there were weekly head-scratching results that lead to, “Can you believe (fill in the team) lost” comments.
This has affected many areas of sports betting and been a boom for the sportsbooks, in not only wagering on sides and total, but parlay cards and teasers.
No doubt it has cut into my profits, but last week, I and hopefully you, got some money back on my teaser selections which went 4-0 against the NFL odds, taking us to 11-5 in teaser picks and close to profitable again on 2,3 or 4-teamers.
Here is what I have for NFL picks on 6-point teasers for this Sunday.
I am the first to admit, a rising total is not helping us in this game, yet I still like our chances and here is why. The total in the Atlanta and New England rematch has gone from 53.5 to 56. While a case could be made on teaser for Under 62, for my money the more compelling play is OVER 50. With this kind of number, it makes sense both teams will reach 20 points and when that happens, the Falcons are 21-0 OVER on the teaser line. Also, when the total is 49.5 or higher, the Dirty Birds are a perfect 12-0 OVER, with average total score of 62.7 points.
