Well, this is not going to happened for another couple of months, but if you are new at sportsbook betting or you are interested but not sure how the sportsbook bets work, this article may help you understand what is exactly a teaser and how you can use the sportbook teaser calculator to take the advantage you need in your action to make some profit out of it, of course we need to quote the source, as always, we are going to use one of the most complete sources, Jazzsports Sportsbook, now lets see what is exactly a Teaser.
According to Jazzsports Sportsbook, a Teaser is "a combination of two or more football/basketball spreads/totals where you get a better line on each pick in exchange for a lower payout. There is an incredible number of variations in how teasers are offered (we'll discuss why later) but generally you can tease your football lines 6, 6.5, or 7-points and your basketball lines 4, 4.5, or 5-points."
There is an important thing about Sportsbook Teasers: .
1. Only is available for Football and Basketball, why, because teasers will give or take points depending on the sportsbook lines on point spread or totals.
2. If you bet on football you will get 6, 6 ˝ or 7 points. For basketball you get 4, 4 ˝ or 5 points.
Now lets take a look at an example from Jazzsports Sportsbook, "if you like the Eagles -8 and the Chargers +2 but aren't sure the Eagles will win by a touchdown or the Chargers will keep it close you could tease both these picks. If you teased 7-points you would have a 2-team teaser with Eagles -1 and the Chargers +9. I think you can clearly see that making Philadelphia only have to win by 2 to cover (instead of 9) makes this bet easier to win. Also, the Chargers can now lose by 7 and still cover. ". As you can see teasers can provide you with a point spread advantage with your sportsbook bets
This a very important rule you need to consider that "With teasers involving three or more picks, a push on any leg reduces the teaser to the next lowest level. A 4-teamer where one leg is a push would payout at 3-team levels, etc. Note that a 2-team teaser with a push is not reduced to a 1-team teaser as there is no such bet. Be sure to check with your book to see how 2-team teasers with a push are handled (some settle push/loss as a loss, others make it a push) so you are not surprised." from Jazzsports Sportbook.
Teaser can provide you the additional sportsbook advantage you need to win some additional cash, the payout is lower but you can have the real advantage in your favorite sport.
