Pleasers Betting in New York Explained
In this section, we explain exactly what this kind of wager is and give examples so you can learn all you need to know about pleasers betting.
What are Pleasers Bets?
Pleasers bets are the opposite of teasers betting where the bettor gets higher odds because the pleasers odds for the outcome of a bet are in favor of the sportsbook. They usually consist of covering two to six teams in the bet with an average point swing of -6.
How Do Pleasers Bets Work?
Pleasers bets are often found in sports like football; in fact, pleasers NFL bets are some of the most popular in regard to this bet type. They work by allowing the bettor to move the betting line in favor of the sportsbook, in return for higher odds and therefore a shot at a bigger payout. They work similarly to point spreads combined with parlay bets, covering between two to six teams with a handicap applied to each game. To show what a this kind of NFL bet may look like, you may have the Buffalo Bills to win with -12.5 and the New York Giants to win with -7.5, then the New York Jets with +1.5 which would produce higher odds than a parlay that just covered each team winning. If you cover more lines the odds will increase further.
How do I place a Pleasers Bet?
Once you understand how these bets work, it’s very simple to go about placing one. Head to the pleasers bet section and pick between two and six teams (some sportsbooks may offer more) and then select how many points to “please” on top of the existing point spreads offerings. Most sportsbooks will then inform you of your new totals and tell you how much each team needs to win by. Other sportsbooks may make you work it out for yourself, so it is always handy to learn anyway.
What Should I Know Before Placing a Pleasers Bet?
One strategy for many experienced bettors is to look at games where the match-up between the two sides could be naturally close. When placing a pleasers bet on two teams both top of their respective divisions and in good form, these games are more likely to be able to swing in your favor over a game where there is a massive gulf in quality such as backing the Jacksonville Jaguars (last season’s bottom-ranked team) to beat the Los Angeles Rams (current Super Bowl champions).
Why Aren’t Pleasers Bets More Popular?
As stated, the odds for pleasers bets are high, which may make you think that more bettors would place wagers on them. But as they are pushed in favor of the sportsbook more than other bets, the risks are higher so bettors don’t see as many returns on this bet type.
