English term or phrase:risk bets
[...] the Fed is engineering an excessively steep yield curve in the context of a pretty robust recovery.

Explanation: This implies positions that are geared to benefit from one specific market direction, and which are hence also called "directional positions". These involve a much higher degree of risk compared to spread positions (e.g. long 2-year bonds vs. short 5-year bonds) or "convergence" positions (long Italy vs. short Germany).
