It’s another difficult task to find two teams to get excited about for our NFL Week 16 teaser pick. Only four teams meet the criteria for a Wong Teaser this weekend.
We’re banking on two road underdogs and teasing them up to +8.5. We’re also going against two AFC North teams that have underperformed this season.
We are betting two-team, 6-point NFL teasers in this space with either favorites laying -7.5 to -8.5 or underdogs getting between +1.5 and +2.5. Wong Teasers cross through the most critical “3” and “7” numbers on both legs of the bet.
Wong Teasers are one way for a bettor to gain an edge on a bookmaker. Be sure to shop around at different sportsbooks that offer -120 odds on a two-team, 6-point teaser. In our examples, we’ll be betting $120 to win $100.

Saints (+8.5) AND Raiders (+8.5) Week 16 Teaser Pick
Saints (+8.5) over Browns
It defies reason that New Orleans (5-9) is a game out of first place in the NFC South. The Saints defeated division rival Atlanta, 21-18, in Week 15. New Orleans, Atlanta, and Carolina are all deadlocked at 5-9 behind division leader Tampa Bay (6-8).
That’s life in the division that nobody seems willing to win. Cleveland’s offense has looked disjointed since the return of QB Deshaun Watson from suspension. This is as much a play against the Browns as it is on the Saints.
Cleveland is 5-1 ATS in its last six games against New Orleans, but that means nothing since these teams last played in 2018. We’re expecting another slog of a game like last week’s Ravens-Browns tilt that ended with a total of 16 points. The Browns have averaged just 11.5 points per game in their last two outings.
Expect New Orleans — and RB Alvin Kamara specifically — to do just enough to cover this adjusted teaser spread of +8.5.
Raiders (+8.5) Over Steelers
Las Vegas has been playing its best football of the season late in the year. The Raiders have won four of their last five games after getting a late gift from New England in Week 15.
Davante Adams has picked up his pace with 1,275 receiving yards and 12 TDs on the season. Adams has recorded seven games of 100+ yards receiving.
Josh Jacobs is getting it done on the ground, too. Jacobs is the NFL’s leading rusher with 1,495 yards to go with 11 TDs this year.
The Steelers are just 2-4 ATS as a home favorite this season. Kenny Pickett (concussion) is scheduled to return at QB for the Steelers, but that might not be a good thing for him or Pittsburgh.
Pickett has been sacked 24 times this season. He’s only managed four passing TDs during his rookie campaign, too. Give us the visitors +8.5 to cash this Wong Teaser.
Week 15 Wong Teaser Result: Loss
Bills (-1.5) and Ravens (+8.5)
The Bills did their job in a 32-29 win over Miami in the snow. Baltimore laid an egg in a 13-3 loss at Cleveland. Our hopes for a break-even season were effectively dashed.
2022 Wong Teaser Record: 5-10
Season Bottom Line: -$700
