For this NFL Week 3 teaser pick, we are targeting two underdogs that play into right into the hands of Stanford Wong’s successful betting formula.

The Green Bay Packers are 1.5-point road dogs at Tampa Bay, per FanDuel odds on Friday morning. The Carolina Panthers are a 2.5-point home underdog against New Orleans.

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.

Packers (+7.5) + Panthers (+8.5) Comprise Fine NFL Week 3 Teaser Pick

Packers +7.5 over Buccaneers

Given their injuries on the offensive line and in the wide receiving corps, the Bucs could have their hands full at home against the Packers. WR Mike Evans will also miss this game after the NFL upheld his one-game suspension for bulldozing Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

Green Bay looked more like the 2021 version of the Packers in a 27-10 win over Chicago in Week 2. The Packers welcomed back WR Allen Lazard, who scored a TD in his return from injury. Aaron Jones ran wild for 132 yards on the ground and scored two total TDs. It was a well balanced attack that produced a comfortable win, one week after the Packers looked discombobulated on offense in their season-opening loss to Minnesota.

We haven’t even mentioned Aaron Rodgers yet. The mobility of Green Bay’s QB should help Rodgers salvage some busted plays that could mean the difference between winning and losing. In any case, we love crossing through the key number of 7 and getting Green Bay +7.5 against the banged-up Bucs.

Panthers +8.5 over Saints

This is a pick made due in part to desperation. Not anything we’re feeling mind you, but the heat that Carolina head coach Matt Rhule needs to respond to in Week 3.

The Panthers have now lost nine straight games dating back to mid-November of last year. Rhule is among the betting favorites to become the first head coach fired this season. It’s time to win or go back to coaching in the college ranks.

All that misery aside, Carolina is only 0-2 this season after late 50-plus-yard field goals by its opponents in Week 1 and 2. The defense looked solid in Week 2 against the Giants. New Orleans QB Jameis Winston didn’t look like himself against Tampa Bay. Who would when playing through multiple fractured vertebrae in their back?

We’re banking on Carolina’s defense to pressure a compromised Winston and force him to make some bad decisions, which he’s been known to make on many past occasions. Take a desperate Carolina team +8.5 at home over New Orleans.

NFL Week 2 Wong Teaser Result: Loss

Saints (+8.5) and Steelers (+7.5)

Pittsburgh did its job for the purposes of last week’s Wong Teaser in a 17-14 loss to New England. No excuses, though. We’ve stunk up the joint these first two weeks, just like the Bengals, Panthers, and Colts.

There was a moment of pause last week when Jay Glazer reported that Winston would be playing against Tampa Bay with what amounted to a broken back — less than an hour before kickoff. But New Orleans had a chance to cover at +8.5 and simply failed to do so. The Saints lost by 10.

Onward and upward in NFL Week 3.

2022 Wong Teaser Record: 0-2

Season Bottom Line: -$240
