How about a Patriots-Eagles teaser play?
After not having lots of choices recently, we have a handful of teaser choices for Week 7.
If you check out recently’s piece, ideally you conserved some cash by preventing the Chargers, as it produced an appealing +8.5 leg that had no opportunity of covering when the Ravens burnt out Justin Herbert and Co. 34-6.
As a refresher, when putting together a teaser, some specifications consist of:
Keeping it to a two-team teaser (the more pieces you include, the higher the threat).
Target lower-totaled video games (the more points anticipated, the more difference included).
Tease through the essential varieties of 3, 6, and 7.
All numbers from BetMGM.
Week 7 NFL 6-point teaser-leg choices
Broncos +8.5 at Browns (40.5)
Washington at Packers -2.5 (48.5)
Falcons at Dolphins +8.5 (47.5)
Jets at Patriots -1.5 (42.5)
2 non-traditional legs
Panthers at Giants +9 (42.5)
Eagles +9 at Raiders (49.5)
I note these as non-traditional since I discussed how you ought to tease through the essential variety of 3. Nevertheless, if you see a juice of -115 or higher on +3, that’s an indication that the spread will drop to (+2.5). Getting the +9 in this circumstances is sound.
What I search for
I enjoy targeting quarterback pressure, either through a terrific pass rush or a terrific pass defense that might perhaps require turnovers. That being stated …
My Week 7 NFL two-team teaser: Patriots -1.5/Eagles +9
New England has currently put a beat-down on the Jets when this season, winning 25-6 in Week 2. Could the Patriots truly do it once again? As long as QB Zach Wilson continues to get sacked (18 times) and toss interceptions (9 versus 4 goals), then I’m going with “yes.”
Because very first match, the Patriots produced 17 points from turnovers. Though not likely to take place once again, New England still does have a top-half pass rush, has actually dealt with a harder slate of challengers in the Saints, Buccaneers, and Cowboys, and has a quarterback in Mac Jones who is finishing 71 percent of his passes. Not for nothing, the Jets are the only team in the league to have scored zero points (yes, zero) in the first quarter and have scored just 13 first-half points this season, 20 points fewer than the next-closest team, the Detroit Lions.
The Raiders are a pass-only team, ranked third in passing yards and 30th in rushing yards. The Eagles’ defense is second best in limiting big passing plays, allowing just 11 total of 20 yards or more. Prior to his matchup against Philadelphia, Bucs QB Tom Brady was leading the league in 20-yard completions and yet had an average depth of target of 5.6 yards in that game.
I expect something similar to take place with Raiders QB Derek Carr. The last time the Raiders dealt with a pass defense similar to the Eagles’ was in Week 4 against the Chargers. Carr threw for less than 200 yards — his lowest output of the season — in a 28-14 Raiders loss.
The Eagles have actually also faced three of the toughest quarterbacks in the league — Dak Prescott, Patrick Mahomes, and Tom Brady — and held all three to less than 300 passing yards. This could also be a spot where Las Vegas might fall flat coming off a big divisional road win against the Broncos; the Eagles have actually a few extra days of preparation and rest after last week’s Thursday night video game.
Why I’m leaving out the Broncos
This is a personal choice. No Baker Mayfield, no Kareem Hunt, no Nick Chubb for the Browns. Looks like a lock! You know how many times I have actually been burned in the past with a new quarterback coming in and stealing the show? Enough to not want to touch this video game.
