if you see the line Knicks -3.5; in order to win the bet, yes they have to win by 4 points (or more of course)

if you teased it to Knicks + (whatever points, +.5, +1) means now instead of being the favorites, they are now "getting points"...which means you would win the bet if the Knicks still win of course, OR if they lose by less than the point they are getting; such as if you take the Knicks in an 8 point teaser...that would move the Knicks from -3.5, to +4.5....meaning that you win the bet if the Knicks win outright (which is predicted by the initial -3.5 point spread) OR if they lose by less than 5 points

as far as payouts...you have to at least pick 2 teams/total points for a teaser...so the payout is going to be larger than a straight bet on 1 game; the trick is..like i said..the more points you want to "add" the more it will cost you

posted before i finished my book...lol

yes youd win that bet..but yes, just like a parlay..youd have to win all "games" on the teaser you pick to win the bet..

like i said..minimum is 2, and i thnik most have a cutoff at 12 max

just like mine i posted earlier in the thread:

i have:

Rutgers +2
Wizards/Hornets under 197
Nuggets/Pistons over 194
Lakers/Cavs over 196

$4.75 to win #3.96

and i have to win all 4 "games" to win the bet....no pushes or losses

Sorry for not replying sooner to explain the teaser angle.

Can anyone else play 3 team teasers in basketball for 8 pts besides me?

3 teams is hard to hit as it is, +10 for a 4 teamer isn't worth it in baskets.

That's fine I think I pay more $ for the 8th point anyway.

put this in a teaser:

Michigan over teased down to 122.5 ~ predicted final 87-49
Minnesota side teased down to 7.5 ~ predicted final 72-60

and any of the following:

Cal poly +13.5
Tenn chat + 26.5
santa clara +2.5

Cal poly ~ teams are very even
Tenn chat ~ LSU turns the ball over too much and they should be favored by 12-13.5 not 19.5
santa clara ~ won this same game last year against san jose state with the exact same starting lineup, won by 26.

44 to 21 will be the 2nd time score in mich game, might take 2nd half as well.....over in the teaser is the safest play.

it will come so close to the number as I analyzed earlier.

I can't see it not covering, I just can't.....don't get me wrong it could be 80-40 lol.

I love it, let's get this one in the books so I can plan the rest of the attack tonight.

that is a flat bet, not teased.

1st half only play. They have to lead by 20 at the half to get a push, 21 to win.

I still think Mich covers this game, a real slow start will hurt the half bet......I figured I would get 52-55 1st half and get 70 2nd half to hit the over, right on track if they don't go cold over the last 3 mins.

sorry buddy, I didn't see the line go up, 20 was pushing it, I would have told you to pass.........1 in 500 games played every year gets a 1st half line of -20.

I did some research and only 99 games in the last 8 years have had a line of 30+ points.

I put Tenn chat in 8 of the open teasers +27.5, of course they all might be losers very shortly lol.

I added 5 new three team teasers with Tenn chat +27.5 and open open.

Ok, that might be the worst game I have ever handicapped.

Michigan, thank you for a hole the size of a crater on the night.

ok, NBA half time plays that can't be ignored:

Lakers -7
Nets +5
Nuggets -1

Santa clara 1st half -2.5

Ok, I am getting screwed on blowouts and close 2 pt games, not exactly ideal for the over.

my worst night in forever.

If i hit the above teasers I will be even on the day at least after a horrific start. Betting em huge. 134 game minny + 62.5 minny 1st half & Tenn chat +11 2nd half is a HUGE play too.

GL folks.
