New to betting? Keep reading to know all you need about Teaser Bets.
A Teaser is a bet on two or more teams or selections. The difference between a teaser and a parlay is that in a teaser you adjust (tease) the line in your favor.
If New England Patriots are favored by seven points in one game and the Buffalo Bills are favored by 10 points in a second game. A six-point, two-team teaser would adjust the point spread six points in your favor; i.e. New England would now be favored by one point (7 – 6 = 1) and Buffalo would now be favored by four points (10 – 6 = 4).
You could make a two-team, six-point teaser bet with Buffalo and New England. In this example are betting that Buffalo will win by more than four points (10 – 6 = 4) and New England will win by more than one point ( 7 – 6 = 1). With two-team Teasers, the following occurs:
Tie and a Win = No Action
Tie and a Tie = No Action
Tie and a Loss = Loss
A tie or push in a three-to-seven team teaser will reduce the wager to the next lowest level. i.e. a six-team teaser with a push becomes a five-team teaser.

Note regarding NFL two, three and four team teasers:
A premium charge is applied when you place an NFL two, three or four-team teaser that either:
1) Crosses over both three and seven points
2) Lands on three or seven points, while crossing over the other
3) Comes off of three or seven points, while crossing over the other
An extra five cents is charged for each team that falls under one of the three aforementioned categories in a two-team teaser.
An extra three cents is charged for each team that falls under one of the three aforementioned categories in a three or four-team teaser.
For example, you want to place a two-team six-point teaser on the favorites of the following game lines:
Ravens (+9) vs. Broncos (-9)
Jaguars (+14) vs. Patriots (-14)
By teasing the Broncos down from -9 to -3 points and the Patriots down from -14 to -8 points, you will be charged an extra five cents since one team (Broncos) crossed over seven points while landing on three points. The juice on this teaser would be -115.
If both teams fall under one of the three aforementioned categories, an extra 10 cents will be charged, for example, if you want to place a two-team six-point teaser on the underdogs of the following game lines:
Buccaneers (-2.5) vs. Jets (+2.5)
Seahawks (-3) vs. Panthers (+3)
By teasing the Jets up from +2.5 to +8.5 points and the Panthers up from +3 to +9 points, you will be charged an extra 10 cents, since the Jets crossed over both three and seven; while the Panthers came off three and crossed over seven. The juice on this teaser would be -120.
