Betting Teasers

We have all heard of teaser bets before and some of you maybe have even done a little teaser betting during the football season, but this piece should help define what a teaser bet is and some of the proper times to consider this betting proposition.

Before we get into the times teaser bets should be made lets first define what a teaser is. A teaser bet is a prop bet that allows you to alter the betting odds up and down in your favor. The most common teaser bets in football are 6, 6 ½, and 7 point teasers. You must pick at least 2 teams, but you are able to select up to 6 teams total. The teaser bet is another form of a parlay as all of your teams have to win for the wager to be declared a winning one.

Let us say that you wanted to bet a two-team 6 point teaser, taking the Green Bay Packers over the Detroit Lions and the San Francisco 49ers over the Oakland Raiders. In this hypothetical example the Packers are 7.5 point favorites and the 49ers are 3.5 point underdogs. With your 6 point teaser bet you are allowed to improve the line 6 points in your favor on the teams you like. This means you get Green Bay -1.5 (The 7.5 points the packers are favored by minus the 6 points you get in the teaser bet) against Detroit and you would now get the 49ers +9.5 (The +3.5 49ers are getting as the underdog plus the 6 extra points in the teaser) against Oakland.

After the games are over it is just like a normal point spread except you add in those extra points to determine the winner. In the example above if the Packers won by 2 or more points AND the 49ers lost by no more than 9 points you would have a winning wager.

Now we said earlier that you can add more points and more teams for teasers. The odds differ for each individual teaser bet, since you can choose 3 different sums of points, and select up to 6 different teams. You will have to check with you sportsbook for the exact odds they are offering on teasers, because some books give better odds than others on teaser wagers.
