Looking for a guide on NFL teasers? Have you ever watched an NFL game and thought to yourself: “There’s no way that this team loses this game.”
If you have, teasers might a good betting strategy as you begin to build a bankroll. A lot of experienced handicappers use teasers as a way cash tickets when they feel extremely confident about the outcome of multiple events. Like a parlay, a teaser allows you to move the line in a direction that you believe will benefit your wagering opinions. Because of this, teasers payout much lower than traditional parlays but these tickets are easier to cash. Let’s look at a few different scenarios when you’d use a teaser for an NFL game.
The 3-Leg Teaser
One of the most popular teasers is a 3-leg teaser. Most of the time, the legs of a teaser pay around (-300). When you do a 3-leg teaser, you’ll get about +100 betting odds for three specific outcomes. Let’s hypothetically say that these three games are happening:
NY Giants @ Tampa Bay Bucs (-3.5)
LA Chargers @ New England Patriots (-3.5)
Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans (-3.5)

For the sake of this example, we’ll pretend that you believe there is zero chance that the home team loses these games. You could simply take each team in a money line parlay and cash the parlay if they win. What if you wanted a little bit more insurance? What if you are afraid of a game being particularly close and you wanted some insurance against one of the opponents kicking a field goal at the last second defeating your wager?
The teaser bet allows you to protect against the scenario. You could “Tease” each team 7 points and the new lines would be:
NY Giants @ Tampa Bay Bucs (+3.5)
LA Chargers @ New England Patriots (+3.5)
Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans (+3.5)
In this scenario, any of your home teams could lose by 3 points but you’d still be able to cash your ticket because you’d be within the new “Teased” 3.5 point margin. As you can see, the teaser is a great way to build your bankroll and it can be a valuable tool when you feel like you’d want a little insurance to make your Sundays a success.
