Betting NFL Pleasers
Bettors that wager on NFL pleasers are people who can listen to somebody run their fingernails down a chalkboard without cringing. In addition, they have a fat sack. This ain't no bet for the sane NFL bettor. Pleasers are for daredevils, people who play chicken with trains, oh, and those that don't give a flying @#$! about their bankrolls!
While the most exciting bet in sports, it is the worst odds. Let's quit being so negative though. They do have the highest payouts of any football bets. This is because their damn near impossible to beat. You have to have one hell of an eagle eye to nail these on a consistent basis. Ok, we'll end the suspense and explain the bet.
A pleaser is the opposite of a teaser. Instead of "getting points" in your favor, you give them away. What makes this bet so nasty is that it's a parlay style bet and you have to pick in between 2-10 games.
It's hard enough to get one regular point spread right. But to turn it inside out, give away points and then have to do this with 2 or more games is absolute insanity! Like we said above though, it pays well! Speaking of payouts, let's take a look at the payout chart for one of these suicide wagers.
7 Point Football Pleaser (ties push)
2 teamer 8-1
3 teamer 25-1
4 teamer 60-1
5 teamer 150-1
6 teamer 450-1
7 teamer 700-1
8 teamer 1000-1
9 teamer 1350-1
10 teamer 1750-1
As you can see, these payout's are enormous. Their more than twice as hard to beat though.
Before we go, we'll leave you with an example of what a real pleaser bet looks like. Let's say these are some of the lines for the current NFL week:
Tampa Bay -2.5
New Orleans -4
Ok, let's say your looking to do a 2 team 7 point NFL pleaser which pays out 8-1 odds should it hit. These are the lines you will have to choose from:
Tampa Bay -9.5
New Orleans -11
As you can see, no matter what you pick, the line gets worse out of your favor. Tough bets to win, fat payoffs! Enjoy!
