A College Basketball teaser bet allows you to adjust the
game point spread in your favor. A basketball teaser is
like a parlay, but you can add or subtract points from the
spread to make your bets stronger. This is called moving
the line. Additional points are either added to the
underdog or subtracted from the favorite when betting a
teaser. The odds change according to the number of points
the spread is moved and the number of teams combined to
form the teaser.
example, Syracuse might be favored by 9 points in
one game and Boston College might be favored by 12
points in a second game. A 6 point teaser would
adjust the Syracuse point spread 6 points in the
customer's favor; i.e. Syracuse would now be favored
by 6 points (12-6=6).
The customer might make a bet on a 6 point teaser with
Syracuse and Boston College. In this example, the customer
is betting that Syracuse will win by 6 points and Boston
College will win by 3 points (9-6=3). As in the parlay,
all teams must win.
Ties are often considered losing bets at many sportsbooks,
not pushes, so check the rules before you bet.
Madness Parlay Bets - College Basketball Betting
Why betting on a
March Madness basketball parlay and not make several
individual Basketball bets? The payouts for parlays are
significantly higher than for individual bets. But
remember, since every one of the individual plays must
win, it's an all-or-nothing bet. If you win two out of
three plays, the parlay still loses, whereas you would
have won those two plays as individual straight bets. You
are given better odds because predicting the outcomes of
several basketball games together is more difficult than
predicting any individual game.
