The definition of a teaser bet in our
own words is - a combination of 2 - 10 NFL or College Football wagers in which
you change the point spreads and or the total numer in your favor. In exchange
for changing the line, you are given a lower payout. When you change the point
spread, you can change it in your favor either with the favorite or the
underdog. When you change the number on a total, you can change it either way.
Much like a parlay bet - all the bets in a teaser MUST win for you to become a betting winner.
To explain a little more on that. If you
know what a parlay is - a teaser is a little like a parlay. You have multiple
bets on one game here. Letís keep this pretty simple from the beginning. Letís
say you have a National Football League 3 team teaser. The New England Patriots
are -7 over the New York Jets, the Chicago Bears are +5 at the Green Bay
Packers, and the total of the 49ers and Rams is 42. You have a 3 team teaser on
this game, and you wanted to knock the Patriots down to -6, because that makes
you more comfortable with the bet. The Bears and Packers game, you like it at
+3, so you knock it by 2 points, and the final one, you want to take the OVER,
so maybe you drop the 42 to a 41. You have just changed three lines by a total
of 4 points. That will be taken into effect when you win all three games, and
you are given a payout.
A few tips when you are placing
teaser bets a few things to consider:
Keep in mind that a great deal of NFL
games are won by either 3 or 7 points. Thatís important to keep in mind, as you
donít want to lose any of your bets by that ?point. For example, the New
England Patriots this time are 8.5 point favorites over the Jaguars. You can
tease it down to -6.5, and now a 7 point win becomes a winner.
Dont get too carried away with teasers.
While they seem like a great idea, and you love being in charge of setting your
own betting line, they are tougher than you might think. Keep in mind, you have
to win EVERY game on the teaser to become a winner.
Itís pretty easy to see what the true
advantages are to betting teaser bets. Of course, you are given better odds on games. You
have a chance to claim a couple different bets onto one, and you are in charge
of your own bets. Those are all great .
Best of luck with all your betting this
NFL and College Football season. Enjoy the action, and we hope you can enjoy a
few teaser wins at !
