NBA Basketball Pleasers

Welcome to the most stressful bet in all of sports betting; The Pleaser!

This bet is anything but pleasing. It should have been called "the excrutiator" as it's one tough cookie to win but pays enormous should you happen to pick'em the right way!

The pleaser is a cross between a parlay and a teaser. It's like a parlay in that you have to pick 2 or more games and both have to win in order for your betting ticket to cash.

It's like a teaser bet in that you can move the line X amount of points, however your not moving them in your favor, your moving them AGAINST yourself making it harder for your bet to cover the spread, hence the massive payouts. Check out the chart below and you'll see what we're talking about.

How to Bet

Point Spread - The most basic of basketball wagers.

Moneyline - For those that simply want to bet on a team to win straight up.

Totals - Also known as an over/under. This bet has nothing to do with who which team wins or by how many. You're simply predicting if both teams points scored will exceed or fall short of the posted total.

Parlays - Multi-team wager where all must win in order to get paid. Big risk and big reward.

Teasers - Multi-team bet where you get to move the line a certain amount of points on each game. All teams must cover the teased point spreads to cash.

Pleasers - The opposite of a teaser. You're "giving" points away, making this bet a much tougher proposition to win.

Prop Bets - Wagers not having to do with which team wins the game or by how many. These usually pertain to wagers on individual players points scored, rebounds, assists, steals, etc.

NBA Futures - Bet on your favorite team to win their division, conference or the NBA Finals. A great bet for those looking to risk very little for a potentially large payoff.
