Determine the outcome of any teaser combination with our teaser calculator. Teaser bets are popular sports bets because you are able to adjust the point spread in your favor particularly when you are betting on football or basketball.
Teasers allow you to have an advantageous point spread while selecting up to 9 teams in a teaser bet with our teaser calculator. You may tease a side or a total of a football game as well as cross sports by teasing basketball games with football games.
What exactly is a teaser?
A teaser is the combination of two or more football or basketball teams selected together in one wager with adjusted spreads/ totals where the bettor gets a better line on each pick for a lower payout. You can add points or subtract points to the sides or mix both sides. If any selection loses then the whole Teaser is a loss.
Why are teaser payouts much lower?
Well, teaser bets are the only type of bets where balanced action can still incur in loses for the sportsbook. And given the different possible outcomes there is no equation that can be run to calculate percentages for teasers like parlays and straight wagers. Also, because teasers can be multiple picks from multiple games, it is impossible to even come close to balancing action anyway, therefore payouts on teaser bets must be lowered.
Lakers +4 +5 pts = the teased line is now +9
Knicks -3 +5 pts = the teased line is now +2
The payout in a 2 team teaser for 5 pts. is 10/11 In this case you will lay $110 to win $100.
