Default hows this for a teaser?

hi im fairly new to sportsbetting

$200 to win $500 teasing 6.5pts

KC +10.5, bears +7.5, browns +7.5, eagles +3.5

my friend advised me that crossing the line is bad

the eagles line was -3

but how can this be bad?

if i was only up by a FG id lose

but now i can be down by a FG and win

any advice much appreciated in advance

thank you

Teasing across the zero with Philly looks like donkey stuff but is ok if you capture the entire 3 on the other side, which you have. Bears and Browns to 7.5 (thru the 3 and 7) looks good also, KC teased to 10.5 as home dog at Arrowhead also looks like a good situation.

Wong Teasers are not the be all and end all, I like your play, and think it is +EV as you have teased across some key numbers on all your picks.

You get almost no value for that number, as only OT ties end on it. So you've picked up five numbers for a 6.5 point teaser.

Let's all just ignore math. Maybe the tooth fairy will give me a winning teaser.

I never post here but I have plenty of teasers on teams that were for instance -3 -120 and definitely moving to -3.5, I teased them 6 points + TIES WIN so I end up getting +3.5 on the other side.

If you think this is a bad teaser leg, you have issues.

And you have a winning record on these teasers over a meaningful sample size?
