NFL Week 13 teasers: Proven NFL expert on five teaser win streak ranks top plays, which don't include Seahawks
Make it five straight wins for the Teaser of the Week with the Steelers and Panthers winning outright after we teased both up to +8.5. Nothing is better than a play you don't have to sweat for even a second, and with both those teams taking early leads and playing two of the most limited offenses in the league, we had nothing to worry about. The other two teams in our Week 12 rankings covered their teaser lines but not as normal spread plays, and our three alternate teaser legs covered as well. Another pretty good week, all in all.
This week, we're looking at four teams we can take through Teaser Alley to get the 3 and the 7, and there may potentially be others. One team I'm sure plenty of people will be interested in teasing is the Seahawks after the spread ballooned up over the key number of -7 before settling in as touchdown favorites on Tuesday.
However, I'm not sure how good the Seahawks are, especially on the defensive side after that embarrassing performance against the Raiders at home coming off a bye. Matchups don't get easier than facing a severely depleted Rams team, but the Seahawks losing a divisional game on the road because their defense fell flat again is pretty easy to picture once you get past the state of the Rams roster. With plenty of other quality options on the board, there's no reason to put your teaser at risk by expecting a Seahawks bounceback here.
So who is in our Teaser of the Week? Do we trust the Browns to win on the road in Deshaun Watson's first game in a similar spot as the Seahawks? Let's get into the picks right now.
