It’s time for an NFL Week 2 teaser pick, and we’re again relying on the successful betting theory created by Stanford Wong.
As introduced in Week 1, 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 on a Wong Teaser.

NFL Week 2 Wong Teaser Pick: Saints (+8.5) AND Steelers (+8.5)
Saints +8.5 over Buccaneers
New Orleans has been a house of horrors for Tom Brady and the Bucs in recent times. The Saints spanked the Bucs 36-27 at Caesars Superdome last season. New Orleans followed that up with a 9-0 shutout victory at Tampa Bay to sweep the 2021 season series.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin may miss this game after pulling a hamstring in the season opener against Dallas. Brady still has weapons in Mike Evans, newly acquired Julio Jones, and Leonard Fournette out of the backfield. But they’ll need to perform a whole lot better against a New Orleans defense that’s given them fits than they did at Dallas.
New Orleans is 7-1 ATS against Tampa Bay in their last eight games. We’ll gladly take an additional six points here, and force the Bucs to win this game essentially by double digits.
Steelers +7.5 over Patriots
This line stinks — as in it’s really fishy. In our estimation, the Steelers should be the slight favorite at home against the Patriots.
Will QB Mac Jones be fully healthy for the Pats after suffering back spasms from the Miami opener? He better be. Pittsburgh’s defense sacked Cincinnati QB Joe Burrow seven times and forced five turnovers. Sure, Steelers DE T.J. Watt will miss the game with a torn pec muscle.
But Pittsburgh dodged a bullet when RB Najee Harris declared himself healthy and eligible to play against the Patriots earlier this week.
Fun stat: New England has covered one game in its last six dating back to last season (a blowout win at Jacksonville late in the year). Again, give us the additional six points, and we’ll gladly take the Steelers crossing through the key number of 7.
NFL Week 1 Wong Teaser Result: Loss
Colts (-1.5) and Vikings (+7.5)
The Vikings did just as we expected and won their home opener against Green Bay outright, 23-7. The game was never really close, or even competitive for that matter. That was the good news.
Indianapolis, on the other hand, pooped on our parade by playing to a 20-20 tie against Houston, although a successful 42-yard field goal by since-jettisoned Rodrigo Blankenship would have been enough for our teaser to cash.
After the Colts defeated the Texans by a combined score of 62-3 in both games last year, they couldn’t muster a two-point win in the 2022 season opener. That’s why they call it gambling.
2022 Wong Teaser Record: 0-1
Season Bottom Line: -$120
