    NFL Week 5 teasers: Proven NFL expert ranks top teaser options, plus why to avoid teasing the Lions

    Our top teaser pick last week was the Eagles, and they needed the adjustment to cover the teased line of Eagles -2.5. The adjustment wasn't enough for our next best team, as the Dolphins were surprisingly blown out by the Bills one week after winning a game by 50 points. The rest of our plays from Sunday and Monday did well, though it's possible the Seahawks, Ravens, Rams and Titans were all better plays on the normal spread than in teasers depending on when you placed your bets. That's why we try to educate you each week by ranking the best teaser options while also including where you should be looking to play each team straight instead if it looks like the line could move.

    If you've read my other content or followed my picks, you likely already know I've been SportsLine's No. 1 NFL against-the-spread expert over the last six years, going 535-450-30 against the spread to put me up more than 35 units on those picks at SportsLine since 2017. When it comes to teasers, we stress focusing on the options that go through Teaser Alley and ideally lining up with sides you already like against the main number.

    If you don't know what Teaser Alley is, read on to find out. Even if you do, I'll go through every game where I believe there's a teaseable number, give you my analysis of whether it's worth putting in our bucket of potential plays, and then ranking those plays at the end, with the top two representing the best teaser play you can make this week. But if you disagree with any of the analysis for those two teaser legs, you have all the info you need to find other teaser-worthy options.

    One game we won't be teasing is Panthers-Lions. This looked like a great teaser play when Lions -8.5 was still available, but the game is now -9.5 or even -10 across the board. While I do expect the Lions to still cover if you tease them down to -3.5, we're not getting through the key number of 3, and this is a situation where it makes more sense to play the Lions to cover the normal spread if you like them.

    Now let's get to the teaser legs I do think are worth considering.
