    Let's be honest about NFL teasers

    1) How many guys you know who've cleaned up on NFL teasers in the L5 years?

    2) How tired do you get of guys telling you how sharp they are by posting "Wong" teasers across 3 & 7?

    3) Are you going to continue to respect any guy who tells you the 2-teamers are still OK to play at -120?

    4) How many Teasers got blistered on Rams/Dallas/GB or Min/Indy/New Eng (b4 it hit 3)?

    5) How many Teaser pros bothered to consider the new NFL overtime rules? Indy ties, Pitt could have, too.


    Truth is the books cleaned up on Teasers today so much that their wrist got tired from counting all the $$.

    Teasers used to be more popular back in the day when locals didn't offer money lines.

    It was the only way to get down to ML area or rise a dog over the key score threshold.

    Books wouldnt offer these at the prices they do if the public was consistently crushing the books. Youll hit some and think they have long term profitability all over them, but they dont. Focus on winning one game, not 2 or 3.

    with domestic books i stopped playing teasers. now i find the adjusted lines i like and use them. this way not all lines are adjusted by the same value.

    teasers themselves never worked for me. def lost more than i bet.

    If you find places where there is a slight edge you bet teasers like any other type of bet

    I'm old enough to remember 6-point two-team +100 with ties win. And the books didn't try to engineer main lines to avoid teasers. I remember teasing down -9 to essentially -2.5-240 on a ML that was like -450.

    Just ain't the same now.

    teasers is like betting the pointspread you need to be on the right number, its more a matter of knowing what to pick , but i think in the long run it adds +/- 10percent of hitting, because most of the time the teaser wins when the pointspread also cover

    A teaser is just an alternate line parlay. At 2 teams -120 it's around -282 per leg. So just look at each individual leg and ask yourself if you would make that single wager.

    simple tease the team you think that wins the game do it on paper and see if you way different results from original spread

    like just about any game yesterday ok we have Vikings at +1.5 vs pack my line sat night so tease them 6 points you get +7.5

    they hammered GB wire to wire

    now look at rams vs Bills you thinking odds makers goof you tease Rams to +9.5 wwwwwwopssssssssssssss they got hammered 31-10

    Eagles - 4.5 my line i was leery of so tease them to +1.5 winner won by 3 gave up late TD to lions


    TEASE WHO YOU THINK WILL WIN THE GAME

    Eagles +1.5-282 was not a good wager. Never tease across the pk em.

    Teasers were more useful when props aren't around, and they gave only spread and total. These days with many books offering props, what's the difference between taking a prop and a teaser.

    this is also all in hindsight. different feel to what you are explaining.

    i get your point though of teasing who will win, not just to get more points.

    the more accurate the line, the more useful teasers become.
    contrary to other bets.
    wk 1 the worst for teasers , more variance.
    playoffs best for teasers, less variance. i remember books wouldnt take teasers in the nfl playoffs

    I wonder if people have done the math on this for pretty good cappers ... I had a good week 1 and I noticed this happened to me last year:

    When I was right about the games I usually was right ATS, so for 2 or 3 teamers I'm getting paid less than even instead of +260 or +600 in many instances of winning

    I like the Adj. line bet instead. I was taught to make a tease Ultra effective you should cross over 2 so called football prime numbers ( 3. 7, 10, 14, 17, etc.). The higher you go the less effective your 6 pts. becomes. EX.- if the line is 7 1/2 tease it down crossing 7 and 3. Good Luck! Don't fall in love with teasers.

    Very true, Stackin! There's this idea out there that Teasers are a magic money tree. Surely the -120 kills this theory.

    If you're a good capper and you put yourself on the right side, so often you're going to feel like you left $$ on the table. $110 to win $100, instead of $100 to win $260.

    I've never seen any math that shows me the 6-pt jump turns it into a +EV risk. And you always have to seen out a 2nd leg and SETTLE for what's available. I refuse to believe people are stacking profits from Teaser success.

    Teasers are mostly math. If you know the math then you will win. If you don't then you will lose. Very simple
