What are basketball teasers?
Teaser betting is a popular form of wagering that allows players to shift pointspread odds in their favor. In a standard basketball teaser, a player must make at least two selections, both of which must win, and the player is given a cushion of a certain number points per each leg.
For example, assuming the Boston Celtics were 7½ point favorites, and the Miami Heat were 10 ½ point favorites, a bettor may enter a two-team tease on both teams. Using a conventional four-point basketball teaser, each teams spread would be reduced to 3½ and 6½ points. Each team must cover the reduced spread. The sports bettor would be paid at even money at most online sportsbooks.
While basketball teasers are not as popular as football teasers, a smart player is still able to get the best of it by looking for key situations where a tease might be appropriate. Players can tease the total number of points to be scored in a game as well as the pointspread.
There are many types of teasers offered by online sportsbooks. SportsbookReview.com has assembled a list of the top online sportsbooks to offer teasers as well as their betting odds.
