NFL Divisional Playoffs Betting Recap: Teaser bettors clean up
It was the weekend of the teaser for online sports bettors wagering on NFL.
All combinations of point spread teasers cashed (based on conventional 6 point teasers).
The Seattle Seahawks faced a 31-0 deficit and scored 24 consecutive points to cash for teaser players.
Teasers on the total cashed both ways in three of four games.
What is a football teaser?
A teaser is a popular exotic way of betting that moves the point spread or total in a player's favor. For example, a 10 point favorite in a six point teaser becomes a 4 point favorite, and a 10 point underdog becomes a 16 point underdog. A minimum of two unique sides must be teased.
Online sportsbooks differ in terms of if ties win or reduce the payout, though most all offshore betting sites allow players to choose.
