Betting Basketball Teasers
by Predictem.com Staff
If your a basketball bettor that is constantly losing games by 1 to a few points you may want to consider betting basketball teasers. What's a teaser you ask? It's like a parlay where you pick two or more teams but the difference is that you can move the line "x" amount of points, depending on what type of teaser you select.
Every sportsbook has it's own rules for teaser bets including how many points you can bet, how many teams you can include, if ties are a loss or a push and what the cost of the wager will be.
The standard teasers in basketball run from 4-5 points. Some books offer the ability to buy more points on the wager. These are known as sweetheart and monster teasers and can go as high as 15 points at sportsbooks such as 5 Dimes.
Let's take a look at some regular teaser odds:
|TEAMS||4 POINTS||4.5 POINTS||5 POINTS|
As you can see from the example above, you can select from 2 to ten teams and move the line 4 or 5 points one each bet. This goes for both sides and totals.

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.
