What is a teaser?
- A teaser is a type of bet where you can adjust the point spread or totals line in your favor, but in exchange for a lower payout.
- It is a popular bet type among sports bettors who want to increase their chances of winning by adjusting the lines to their favor.
How to place a teaser on PointsBet Sportsbook:
- Log in to your PointsBet account.
- Navigate to the sport and game you want to bet on.
- Select the “Teasers” option under the Bet Types menu.
- Choose the specific teaser you want to place (e.g., 2-team, 3-team, etc.).
- Adjust the point spread or totals line for each selection in the teaser.
- Enter the amount you want to bet.
- Submit your bet.
Example from the NBA:
Let’s say the point spread for a game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets is Lakers -6.5 and the total is set at 220. If you choose to place a 2-team 6-point teaser, you can adjust the point spread to Lakers -0.5 and the total to 214. In this case, the adjusted lines work in your favor, but the payout will be lower than a straight bet on the original lines.
