Betting NCAA Basketball Teasers
by Staff

If your a college basketball gambler that has the half point jinx (loses a lot of games by a half or one point) college basketball teasers may be what you need to fix your problem. What’s a college basketball teaser you wonder? NCAA teasers are bets similar to parlay wagers in that you pick two or more teams but the difference is that you can move the point spread a certain number of points which of course depends on what type of teaser you place.

While all sportsbooks have their own rules, the standard is a 4 pointer. There are however many more options such as how many points you can move the line in the bet (it goes much higher than 4), how many teams you can include in the wager, if ties are a loss or a push and what the cost of the wager will be.

As noted above, the norm for college basketball teasers are 4-5 points. Some online sports books offer the ability to include more points on the bet. These bets are called “sweetheart” and/or “monster teasers” and extend to as many as 16 points which can be applied to either the side or total on a game.
