A list of sixteen online sportsbooks that allow players to wager NFL Pleasers can be found using the sportsbook rating guide. An NFL pleaser is the opposite of a sportsbook teaser - which adds a number of points (standard is six) to a point spread - and requires that players select two or more point spreads.

For instance, a six point, two team teaser on a +10 underdog and a -7 point favorite converts to a teased spread of +16 for the underdog and -1 for the favorite. Both sides must cash for the teaser to payout; the average payout for a standard two teamer is -110 ($110 to win $100).

A pleaser on the other hand requires that bettors give up points at their online sportsbook. | See standard pleaser payouts
