2-Team 6pt Teaser: Jets vs. Packers (-1) & Patriots (+8.5) vs. Browns
There are a handful of games that work for teaser plays in the NFL this week, and these are two of them. We had the Packers in a teaser leg last week and they laid an egg in London, losing outright to the Giants. Things are a little different this week as the Packers head home to Lambeau to host a Jets team that we don’t think are at the same level as their New York counterpart. Aaron Rodgers and the Pack clearly miss Davante Adams, but we think they’ll bounce back as we catch the Jets in a potential hangover spot coming off an impressive win over division-rival Miami. In our second teaser leg, we’ll roll with the Patriots who shut out the Lions in Week 5 in dominant fashion. The Pats and Browns both come in with 2-3 records, but the Browns’ competition has been inferior, as they have faced the weakest schedule in the NFL. Both teams make their living on the ground, which should make for a quick-moving and perhaps lower-scoring game. This one should be tight, and we like the idea of moving through the key numbers of 3 and 7 and teasing the Patriots to 8.5, and partnering them with the Pack at –1. We’ll play this one at BetUS.
