Teasers are the term that is used in the sports like football and basketball betting by the bettors. This type of betting is just the same as the parlays. Here all the teams selected must win in the order for bettor to win wager. Even a single loss might cause severe loss in the bettor.
The difference between a teasers and parlays, however and that is the bettor is allowed to move the point spread in any direction they like on a particular game. In the game of foot ball the bettors can move 6, 6.5, 7 lines or at times they are even allowed to move 10 points,. However the payoffs are lower depending on the additional half point that the bettor takes. A 7 point teaser pays lower odds than a 6 point teaser.
In the basket ball game the point spread can be moved 4, 4.5, or 5 points. Teasers must be minimum of two teams and can be used as many as 10 teams. This depends on the sports book the wager is placed. While betting sports programs few sports naturally limit the swing. For instance image a soccer match which has 20 goals. This would be highly a impossible target and spread as well. American basketball on the other hand offers many opportunities for broad spread.
Creative types of spreads can apply the principals of spread betting to any subject which can be anything like length of the game etc., Thus if one wishes to continue play a well loved sport bored with fixed odds offerings spread betting is one of the best methods that is trusted by all bettors. Earlier fixed odds sports’ betting was common among the Britain bettors and the spread betting has gained popularity these days.
