The best way to describe NFL pleasers is that they are the opposite of teasers. With teasers you are getting points for multiple team bets at reduced odds, but with pleasers you are giving points up in order to get an increased payout. Typically you can bet between 2 and 10 teams in a pleaser and the standard pleaser is for 7 points. Below I’ve listed standard pleaser payouts, as well as a few examples of what a teaser might look like. As you will see, this can create some insane lines.

Betting pleasers is not for the faint of heart. As you can see, the payouts are excellent, but just think how difficult it is to win a parlay or teaser, let alone winning them after voluntarily decreasing your odds of winning! In order to understand exactly what I’m talking about, let’s look at some standard odds and compare them with their pleaser lines.

Buffalo Bills +7 vs.
New England Patriots -7

This is a totally reasonable and standard line in the NFL, but look what happens when we change the lines based on a 7 point pleaser:

Buffalo Bills Pk vs.
New England Patriots -14

So, let’s say you have a great feeling about the Patriots at -14, which is a possibility, but a very high line for and NFL game. The bad news is that you can’t just bet the Patriots, you will need to find another game, again giving up 7 points, to go along with it, and BOTH have to win for your pleaser to be a winning bet.

I can’t say I recommend betting pleasers on a regular basis, but it is certainly possible that situations may arise where taking a 2 or 3 team pleaser might be worth a shot. Taking any more teams than that is almost certain to drain your bankroll, but hey, it’s your money!
