How To Bet Teasers
by Stal Herz - 03/02/2006

When most men hear the words tease, they often associate that word with that girl in high school who took hours taking the time to pick out the right sweater to make you go crazy but never had the intention of letting you see or feel what was underneath.

However, if you're looking for information on how to bet teasers, Doc's Sports has the info you need to get some satisfaction. First off, let's start with what you need to know. A teaser bet allows you go increase the line of a game you're betting on to give yourself more of a margin of error for victory. You can actually move lines up and down.

Say what? There is a catch, you have to bet two or more games and if one of them loses, your wager is history.

Let's say your sportsbook is offering up a 2-game, 6-point teaser in the NFL. This means that you can use those 6 points against the spread of both of those two games. So, let's say these are the two NFL games that you've chosen to tease:

Pittsburgh -9 Vs. Oakland
Cleveland +2 1/2 Vs. St. Louis

You are taking Pittsburgh and Cleveland.

Now you can take those 6 points and apply them to the point spreads for the Steelers and the Browns. Following this, your new lines would look like this:

Pittsburgh -3
Cleveland +8 1/2

So then, if Pittsburgh wins by more than a field goal and Cleveland is not beaten by 9 or more points, you win your teaser. If one of these teams fails to cover the new teaser line, your wager is sunk.

Obviously, you can go either way to make an underdog's points even greater or you can 'tease' the favorite's points down. So, if you were betting an NBA two-team teaser and you wanted to increase the odds on an underdog, you could do something like this:

Knicks +12 Vs. Pistons
Rockets +7 Vs. Sonics

Now, if you had 4 points to play with and put them towards the Knicks and Rockets, your new teaser lines for the teams you were betting on would look like this:

Knicks +16
Rockets +11

Of course, both teams need to cover their new spreads for you to collect on your bets. Each sports book offers different lines and variations on the amount of teams you can tease. The more you bet, the better the odds.

You can also apply the teaser to the Over/Under. For example, let's say you found yourself in Chicago one winter evening and opened up the Tribune to find a line for the Bulls / Pacers game looking something like this:

Chicago - 7 Vs. Indiana O/U 170

If you teased Chicago to the under with a 4-point teaser, your new line would look like this:

Chicago -3 Vs. Indiana O/U 174

Seems like a sure thing? Well, there is a reason it's called a teaser bet. If you're a big fan of betting multiple games, this is fun way to move around the lines to a place where one can feel comfortable making a call. With the bookmakers becoming much sharper with their lines in the new millennium, the teaser becomes an even more attractive option to certain bettors.

A two-team teaser will usually net you $110 for every $100 spent (it is a good idea to shop around for the best teaser odds). Of course, the more teams you put in your teaser, the higher the odds go. The most popular football teasers are 6, 6 1/2 and 7 points, while Basketball normally offers, 4, 4 and 5 point teases. Each sportsbook varies a bit in what they offer. Some sportsbooks allow you to purchase extra half points or full points.
