    So 5Dimes wouldn't allow teasing Rams with the under tonight!

    Was this the case at all the books??

    WTF is with this?! That should be allowable, shouldn't it? Is that just the book taking a position and saying No Thanks, or is there a common rule about an under and a large dog that I didn't know about?

    Thanks.

    Haha. My experiences dealing with them on issues has always been fine. But yeah, I've heard stories on here.

    Anyway, curious to hear how common this is... not allowing simple two-team teasers with a side and total from a game.

    the books are reeling from getting middled on the monday night game. of course all the teasers covered also. nfl teaser players should be having a good year and the books are leaning towards increasing the price next season. probably -115, -125, -135

    So the tease I WANTED to do is going to hit easily. Meanwhile the TWO teasers I did instead because they wouldn't allow this one both lost. Awesome. That's how things have been going for me lately.

    This is why I need to win all the contests I'm in. Because I can't win a damn bet, lol.

    (Planning to win the SuperContest, Beat the Prick, and my suicide pool. There is no other option. )

    They restrict all the games in which if you multiply the spread X 3 and the result is higher than the total it wont be available for teasing nor parlaying

    Thanks a lot you guys, that's the answer I was looking for! Least now I understand it.

    But I guess all books must not follow this, because a friend got it in at his.

    I could not do the Hawks and over in a teaser - but it allowed Hawks and under - which cashed.

    Seemed strange

    Thats how they get you man.

    I know you don't know me from a can of paint..but try to resist putting in bets you're settling for. penetrate betting just to amuse yourself. Use bet points for that. I had to learn the hard way and still am. Example, betting a live under when I could have bet it at a better price before the game. I ALWAYS do that, but I really shouldn't.

    Never settle. Best of luck brotha. Kill the book!

    And Tony is a total piece of shit for anyone who doesn't know him. Google Tony 5Dimes to amuse yourself.

    Yes, when the total/ATS ratio is less than 3/1, combo bets on Favorite/Over or Underdog/Under are considered correlated.

    Thanks for the post, Cal. And yup, you're completely right, settling and/or chasing are what kill your bankroll. As an intelligent person, I fully recognize this, and yet my discipline is weak as shit. Someday I need to overcome this. That or quit, lol.
