What is Teaser Betting?
Teasers are popular wagers that give sports bettors reduced point spreads for favorites and added points for underdogs. The most popular teaser, known as a 'Wong' teaser, involve home favorites of 6.5 to 8.5 points, and home underdogs of 1.5 to 2.5 points. The name comes from gambling author Stanford Wong; the wagers were made famous in his book "Sharp Sports Betting".

A normal six-point teaser would then reduce the spread to less than a field goal in the first scenario, and greater than a touchdown in the second scenario.

A minimum of two teams must be added to a valid teaser.

 In the old glory days of the sportsbook industry, when players hunted for sportsbook bonuses plus reduced vigorish, a conventional Wong teaser paid out at even money. The average nowadays for this teaser is -110, so $110 to win $100, and many sportsbooks have ''teaser defense'' where they will cross key numbers automatically.

Super teasers are basically teaser wagers on steroids. A super teaser is any teaser that adds ten points or more to each teaser leg. There is a minimum of three teams in this type of bet.
