How To Bet Teasers On FanDuel Sportsbook

Last Updated:

Betting teasers is a popular option for sports bettors looking to adjust the point spreads or totals in their favor. FanDuel Sportsbook offers a variety of teaser bets, providing bettors with more flexibility and potentially better odds. This guide will explain what teasers are and how to place a teaser bet on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Understanding Teaser Bets

A teaser bet allows you to adjust the point spread or total for multiple games in your favor. By moving the line, you increase your chances of winning, but the payout is usually lower compared to standard parlays. Teasers are commonly used in football and basketball betting.

Benefits of Teaser Bets

Increased Chances of Winning

Teaser bets increase your chances of winning by allowing you to move the point spread or total in your favor. This can be especially useful in close games where the adjusted spread makes a significant difference.


Teasers offer flexibility in how you approach your bets. You can choose the number of points to adjust the spread or total, tailoring the bet to your strategy and the specific games.

Real NBA Teaser Example

To better understand how a teaser bet works, consider this NBA example:

  1. Select Two NBA Teams: Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets.
  2. Original Point Spreads:
    • Los Angeles Lakers: -6.5 points
    • Brooklyn Nets: +4.5 points
  3. Choose a 5-Point Teaser:
    • Adjusted Point Spreads:
      • Los Angeles Lakers: -1.5 points
      • Brooklyn Nets: +9.5 points

In this example, if you place a $50 teaser bet on these two games with a 5-point adjustment:

  • The Lakers now need to win by 2 points or more instead of 7.
  • The Nets can lose by up to 9 points and still cover the spread.

By adjusting the spreads, you have increased your chances of winning the bet, although the payout will be lower than a standard parlay.

Tips for Placing Teaser Bets

Research Teams and Outcomes

Before placing a teaser bet, research the teams and outcomes you want to include. Consider factors such as recent performance, injuries, and head-to-head statistics.

Understand the Payouts

Teaser payouts vary based on the number of points you adjust and the number of teams in your bet. Make sure you understand how the adjustments affect your potential payout.

Manage Your Bankroll

Teaser bets involve multiple stakes, so manage your bankroll carefully. Determine how much you are willing to risk and stick to your budget.

How To Place A FanDuel Teaser FAQ

Does FanDuel allow teaser bets?

Yes. Once you’ve chosen two or more eligible wagers, click the “Teasers” tab on the active bets tab to bring up the teaser menu. Once there, you can swing the point spread or totals line on your parlay and see how the payout odds are affected.

What are the rules for a FanDuel teaser?

You can make a FanDuel teaser bet out of two or more point spread or totals bets. Teaser options are limited to football and basketball at this time.

Under FanDuel teaser rules, you can swing the point spread or totals line away from the standard game line, in exchange for more favorable odds from the sportsbook’s perspective. The more you swing the line to your favor, the lower the payout odds become.

Keep in mind you can’t use prop bets, moneyline bets, or futures bets in a teaser.

What is the difference between a teaser and a pleaser bet?

A pleaser is essentially a teaser bet that swings the line more in favor of the sportsbook. As such, the bettor gets a bigger payout if they win.

For example, let’s say you took the Detroit Lions +6.5 and the Arizona Cardinals -2.5, and wanted to put those lines into a teaser/pleaser. The normal parlay payout on those two teams combined would be +265 for those two point spread bets.

A six-point teaser would swing the lines to Detroit +12.5 and San Francisco +3.5. The payout odds would drop to -134.

A six-point pleaser would swing the lines to Detroit +0.5 and San Francisco -8.5. The payout odds would increase to +700. Pleasers work somewhat like odds boosts, but at the expense of taking a parlay with less favorable lines.

How much does a six-team teaser pay?

There are no fixed odds for what a six-team teaser would pay at FanDuel Sportsbook. The payout on a teaser depends on the odds of the original bets, and how many points you swing the line.

For instance, a teaser in which you swing the lines seven points in your favor will pay less than a teaser in which you swing the line three points in your favor.

Do all your bets have to win on a teaser?

Yes. Much like any other parlay, you must win all legs of a teaser for the ticket to pay out.
