Super Bowl 2022 teaser from handicapper John Hyslop. Everyone needs a Super Bowl teaser to make the ost of their betting this Sunday. Luckily for us, John Hyslop has something in mind for the big game.

Super Bowl 2022 Teaser: Teasing the Dogs and the Over for Super Bowl LVI

The Super Bowl is what I like to call a "must bet" spot. You have to. If you want proof, just take a walk into Bizarro World for a second with me. You'll hate it here but just humor me. In Bizarro World, you don't bet the Super Bowl. Do you even watch it? Do you just show up at a Super Bowl party and act natural even though you don't have an action? Is talking to people an option at this party or do you just sit in the corner like a coward and hope the game ends quickly? See what I mean? It's pure insanity.

But these Bizzaro World inhabitants are people too and they deserve a taste of the good life just like everyone else. Luckily for them, there are these things called "teasers". They're bets for people that don't like to bet. Gamblers bet them when they don't want to gamble all the time. Think non-alcoholic beer but for gamblers. Sure it tastes like action, but no great gambling story is ever going to start with a "I had this teaser once.....". They're perfect for any first timers and children (where legal).

2-Team, 6 Point Teaser - Cincinnati Bengals +10.5 & Over 42.5 @ -120 (Bet $120 to win $100)

So if you don't know, a teaser is where you can move the line. In football, you can move it a ton of different ways but I prefer the six-point move. The only catch is, you have to find at least one other bet to move too. They're tied together just like a parlay. Both have to hit for you to win. At most places, ties push but check the rules of your book for that.

I'm not going to spend all day on this one since we're basically cheating by moving the number six points. When I do this in the NFL, I like to move through key numbers (3,6,7,10). Key numbers are basically numbers that NFL final scores fall on moreso than others. Not everyone calls 10 a key number but I do. I'm inclusive like that.

By moving the Bengals from 4.5 to 10.5, we go through three key numbers which feels good. I've already sold myself on the fact that the Bengals could win this game so getting 10.5 points feels good. They've only been beaten by more than 10.5 points twice. Plus they have Joe Burrow. We're good here.

In terms of the total, everyone is saying the under. I saw numbers above 50 the second this game opened but they were bet down to 48.5 now. I feel like that gives us a little discount when we buy it down.

This is the Super Bowl so anybody that tells you they know how these teams will show up is lying. No one knows. That's why it's perfect. Both of these offenses are capable of big things. I'd say the only thing you would have to worry about in this one is a rock fight breaking out in the beginning and draining the clock. Even if that happened, they should still see at least 43 points. I'd say a 24-20 type game is the floor. This should be the easiest teaser ever bet.
