So before we get into the strategy for making College Football Teaser bets, let’s break down what they are, exactly.

Teasers are a type of Parlay bet where the lines are moved in your favor.

In exchange for the sportsbook helping you by shifting the lines, the payout odds are going to be lessened.

You can make Teaser bets on either the point spread or on the Total, also known as the “Over/Under”, lines.

For our examples in this video, we’re going to be focused mainly on Point Spread Teasers.

Since this is a type of Parlay wager, that means you’ll be betting on multiple games as part of a single wager.

If you need to brush up on Parlay betting,you can find a link to our How-To guide on that in the description below.

While college football teaser betting offers a different strategy, we recommend watching the NFL guide video prior to watching this one.

The main idea of basic teaser strategy is to place teasers that go from a loss to a win on point spreads, which in the NFL means fully crossing 3 and 7 at the best odds possible.

While that works for the NFL, it’s not the same for college football.

In the NFL, the margin of victory for a large percentage of games ends up somewhere between 3 and 7 points.

The reason that that concept doesn’t work for college football Teasers is simply because the 3-to-7 point margin of victory is only about two-thirds as common in college games as it is in the NFL.

So how do we adjust? When our experts did some data mining, they discovered that two similar, but different subsets seem to work.

The first subset is betting underdogs that are in the +1.5 to +2.

5 range, where the betting total is LESS THAN 47.5.

The second subset is betting favorites that are in the -7.5 to -8.

5 range, where the betting total is LESS THAN 47.5.

The difference here is key, as it’s the addition of a Totals cap that helps make the increase in cover rate potentially profitable.

The idea is that games with a lower amount of projected scoring may be less volatile with margin of victory.

We do want to point out that data mining like was used to create those subsets can be dangerous when it’s taken as a sure-thing.

The sample sizes used to determine these numbers are not and can not be big enough to avoid potentially large swings based on year-to-year results and statistics.

There is an entire section of our article on College Football Teasers dedicated to this on our website that I’d recommend checking out, and the link to that is in the description.

If you really want to beat college football teasers, then a better method for the favorites starts with removing vig from the money line.

There is going to be a significant amount of math involved here, and a lot of numbers, so feel free to pause, rewind, and review if you need to.

There’s a no-vig calculator on our website that we’ll be using to help with calculating the no-vig odds.

Let’s use a hypothetical game between Ohio State and Michigan as an example.

Here, OSU is favored to win by 8 points, with each team at the standard -110 odds.

The moneyline, meanwhile, show the Buckeyesat -310 and the Wolverines at +280.

Using our no-vig calculator, we find thatthe no-vig moneyline is -287.27, which has a no-vig win probability of 74.18%.

That tells us that the market is giving OhioState a 74.18% chance of winning.

… From here, we look back to the point spread.

Ohio State’s spread was -8, so in our 6-pointteaser, we’d have them at -2.Our database shows about a 2.5% push ratein college football on a -1 spread, and a 1.8% push rate on a -2 spread.

Since we’d lose on a 1-point result, andwe’d push on a 2-point result, we have to subtract the 2.5, and half of the 1.8, fromOhio State’s market odds of winning.

That leaves us with a cover rate of 71.59%.

So what do you do with that number? Well, in that example, teasing Ohio State in a 3-team, 6-point, +180 teaser is considered “+EV”, while teasing them in a 2-team,6-point, -110 teaser is “-EV”.

Why? Because in order to break even long-term,you need a 70.

95% success rate on 3-team, 6-point teasers at +180, and Ohio State’s71.59% is better than that.

However, for a 2-team, 6-point teaser at -110,you need a success rate of 72.37% to break even, and the Buckeyes fall short in that regard.

Betting on Teasers is a pretty advanced technique,and you should make sure you fully understand them before attempting to place your first Teaser wagers.
