The Week 4 slate of games in the NFL is a doozy this week.

There's only one game on the board for Week 4 with a spread above a touchdown, just three teams remain perfect against the spread, and unders are 29-18-1 against the spread so far.

Now, what if I told you that that you could move the line on two of your favorite bets this week six points or more in your favor. "Is that something you might be interested in?"

What Is a Teaser Bet?

A traditional, or standard teaser involves betting on two teams to cover an adjusted number. The bettor gets two teams that they can move the odds six points in any direction, and in return, the bets are treated like a two-team parlay where both must hit in order to cash.

For example, let's say you wanted to tease the two prime time games on Sunday and Monday Night Football.

As of this writing, the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams are +1 and +1.5 respectively on the road. If you wanted to tease both teams in a standard two-team teaser bet, you could now take Kansas City at +7, and L.A. at +7.5. If both teams cover their new spread, your bet wins!

It's also important to note that when placing a teaser on either a favorite, or an underdog, that you move the line in the most advantageous way possible. Most teasers look to move past two key numbers: 3, and 7. Some look to get past 4,6, 10 and 14 as well, but because games traditionally finish with teams winning by 3 or 7, being able to move your teaser bets past both is the best way to maximize your opportunity. Therefore, in the example above, you only truly take advantage of the teaser with just one team: the L.A. Rams.

  • Denver Broncos +2.5 at Las Vegas Raiders -- Broncos +8.5
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers +1 vs. Kansas City Chiefs -- Buccaneers +7

Best NFL Teaser Bets for Week 4

Saints +2.5 (+8.5) vs. Vikings

The Saints have looked awful in their first three games, and while I applaud their somewhat valiant effort in coming back on the road in Week 1, their performances the last few weeks have been far from impressive.

However, London games can get weird, and the Saints decided to travel there at the beginning of the week to get acclimated to the time zone change. Dennis Allen has had experience playing on the other side of the pond before, and this is Kevin O'Connell's first time headed there both as a head coach or assistant.

If Andy Dalton starts for Jameis Winston, in the short term, I don't think it's that much of a downgrade. New Orleans needs to rely on their defense to force some Kirk Cousins turnovers, and then the Red Rifle can find Michael Thomas, Chris Olave, and Alvin Kamara in the middle of the field with short accurate throws to extend drives.

The Vikings should have lost to the Lions last week, but Detroit gifted them a victory in their home stadium. I don't think the Saints will be as kind.

Cardinals +2 (+8) at Panthers

I can write several thousand words about the issues in Arizona with Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray at the helm, but in this particular spot, I'm very bullish on their opportunity this week as a 2-point dog at Carolina.

For whatever reason, Arizona under Kingsbury and Murray seem to be far more comfortable away from home. Via Evan Abrams of TAN, Kingsbury is 8-3 overall against the spread (ATS) on the east coast, and is 18-7-2 ATS on the road in his career with Murray as his quarterback. This is a stark contrast to a terrible 9-17 ATS record at home.

Meanwhile, you also have Matt Rhule's issues as a favorite, going just 3-10 ATS over his career.

Arizona also is getting a late afternoon kickoff, which plays to their advantage travelling from the west coast. They also have seen their defense improve dramatically since getting spanked by the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1.

I like Arizona to cover at +2. I LOVE them to cover at +8.
