2023 Super Bowl Teaser Bets: Picks and Predictions
As we are less than one week from the Super Bowl, and it’s hard not to be extremely excited for this matchup. We have both #1 seeds in a battle of prolific offenses. With Tom Brady now retired, Patrick Mahomes looks to solidify his spot as the top quarterback in the league. He has now been to 5 straight AFC Championship Games, and he is looking for his 2nd Super Bowl victory. You also have Andy Reid against his former team, which should make for a very interesting story line. With so many story lines and so many sportsbooks, you can bet on almost anything in this game. From the coin toss to the National Anthem, to even the Gatorade color that will be dumped on the winning coach. However, we are going to focus on the actual game and look at some best bet teasers plays!
Doc’s Sports offers NFL picks for every game on our NFL predictions page.
For those who are new to the website, we at Doc’s only recommend playing a teaser where the number makes sense. A six-point teaser makes sense when you push the spread through key numbers of three and seven. For example, if a team is a -7.5 to -8.5 favorite, bringing them down to a -2.5 or even -1.5 favorite makes sense. Currently the spread for this game shows the eagles as the favorites at -1.5, and the over/under is set at 50.5. Let’s take a look at our number 1 recommendation. Remember, for a two-team teaser, both bets have to win to cash the ticket.
Doc’s Six-Point Teaser Recommendation #1
Chiefs +7.5 and over 44.5 (6-point teaser -120)
Both offenses are clicking, so the over, especially when getting six points, looks great. Additionally, this is going to be a close game no matter which way you look at it. I certainly don’t foresee the Chiefs being blown out. Patrick Mahomes is great, and that team will find a way. Even if they are not able to get the win, you can be sure they will not lose by more than a touchdown on the biggest stage. This Chiefs team is built to win the Super Bowl. And even if you don’t believe they will win, this is the smartest bet.
Doc’s Six-Point Teaser Recommendation #2
Chiefs +7.5 and under 56.5 (6-point teaser -120)
As for the first part of the best bets, the same rational applies to the Chiefs +7.5. It’s a strong play, and the team’s biggest loss this entire year was by 4 points to the Bills back in October. You can be sure their biggest loss of the year won’t be on Sunday. Now as far as the under is concerned, both teams have very strong defensive lines. Chris Jones has become a dominant force this year with 15.5 sacks, and he was a monster against the Bengals. Cornerback L’Jarius Sneed has also been fantastic on the outside. On the Eagles side, the team dominated the 49ers from the line of scrimmage. The key will be how both of these offensive lines hold up. Both teams have a lot of weapons, but the quarterbacks need some time to find them.
Alternative Teaser Options:
Eagles +5.5 and over 44.5
This is one of those bets that I would not recommend. The general rule of thumb is that you don’t want to tease a team through zero. As I stated above, anyone can win this game, but to take this side of the bet seems a lot riskier. If this becomes an offensive game, I would be on the side of Mahomes and the Chiefs versus Hurts and the Eagles. The same applies to the over for me, but teasing the Eagles to +5.5 would not be wise.
Alternative Teaser Options:
Eagles +5.5 and under 56.5
As stated above, I don’t recommend this, and I this is the teaser I like the least. This indicates the defenses are going to step up, which is very possible. However, for the Eagles to cover and this to go under, a lot would have to go right for them. If both defenses can perform, these quarterbacks can be in some trouble. Let’s be honest, though, does anyone really want to see a 10-7 Chiefs win on Sunday? I think everyone is waiting for these offenses to light it up and that is exactly what will play out.
