Welcome back to the Week 5 Wong Teasers Preview article! In this article, we will take a look at the historical trends and current lines that meet the criteria of the famous blackjack bettor Stanford Wong. If you are unfamiliar with Wong Teasers, be sure to check out our Wong Teaser Basics article.

Another interesting week for the 2022 season. This is definitely the slowest start we have had in the last few years. But I am still confident we will see some progression from these records. I didn’t actually do any teasers this week. For most of the lines that fit, I had already bet the opposite side straight up, so I didn’t want to have to root for a middle. If I don’t really like the lines without teasing, then I don’t want to tease them. Just something to keep in mind when choosing your teams!

Let’s Talk About Teasers – Week 5 Wong Teasers

6 Point Teasers

Our methodology for playing 6-point teasers is similar to Blackjack expert Stanford Wong’s strategy:

Tease the underdog when the line is +1½, +2, +2½, or +3

Tease the favorite when the line is -7½, -8, -8½, or -9.

Sweetheart Teasers

10-point teasers are often called “sweetheart” teasers.

For 10-point teasers, tease the underdog when the line is +1½, +2, or +2½;

Tease the favorite at -10, -10½

Do not take sweetheart teasers at +3


Week 5 Lines

All lines are courtesy of WynnBet. Please note that the results posted next week may differ from what is below due to line movement.

This will show the total and the Record of that team as a 6pt teaser in the current situation this week. So if they’re an underdog, their record below will be their record as an underdog. The total is only on this chart so you can reference it.

Wednesday Spread Total Record since 2018 10 Point Record
Packers -9 41 7-1
Bucs -10 46.5 4-0
Vikings -7.5 44 2-0
Lions +3 46 8-3
Browns +2 47.5 7-3 4-1
Commanders +1.5 43 10-3 7-0

 

So how do I bet these?

Typically, I will form 2-3 teasers taking in information from handicappers at the Sports Gambling Podcast Network as well as my own handicaps on teams that meet the criteria. As well as any additional trends.

10 pt 2020 -10 thru -10½ 8-0 100%
10 pt 2021 -10 thru -10½ 13-0 100%

 

Assuming a -120 payout for 2-team teasers, we must demonstrate better than 73.9% probability on each leg to show we have a breakeven-or-better EV. For a -130 payout on 3-team sweethearts, that threshold is 82.7%. These are specifically for my book, so yours may differ.

Regarding Game Totals < 49

Do totals matter? Another word of advice that some Wong bettors give is to only play games with low totals. The idea certainly makes sense: points are harder to come by in a low-scoring game, so the 6-point tease is worth more. But what does the data say about this in the last three years?

From 2018-2021, here are the statistics, including playoffs:

Bet Record Win %
Underdogs +1½, +2, +2½, +3 234-65 78.26%
Total 49 or under (dog +1½ thru +3) 177-50 77.97%
Total 42 or under (dog +1½ thru +3) 36-13 73.47%

 

Bet Record Win %
Favorites -7½, -8, -8½, -9 76-15 83.52%
Total 49 or under (fav -7½ thru -9) 60-11 84.5%
Total 42 or under (fav -7½ thru -9) 12-1 92.3%

 

If you wanted to look at only home favorites (Wong’s original criteria is home favorites):

Bet Record Win %
Favorites -7½, -8, -8½, -9 53-12 81.25%
Total 49 or under (fav -7½ thru -9) 43-9 82.7%
Total 42 or under (fav -7½ thru -9) 9-1 90%

 

Here are the results for 2022:

Bet Record Win %
Underdogs +1½, +2, +2½, +3 11-10 53.33%
Total 49 or under (dog +1½ thru +3) 11-7 61.11%
Total 42 or under (dog +1½ thru +3) 4-2 66.67%

 

Bet Record Win %
