Subject: Teaser question for FangBanger
In response to my "guaranteed Super Bowl lock" post yesterday, you replied
that you should never tease a total UP and bet the under. Then an hour
later you posted that you should never tease a total DOWN and bet it
under. WTF??

And please explain why you shouldn't tease up and bet under? I actually
thought Pittsburgh would cover the 7, and that the game would go under 47.
If I had bet both of those I would've lost both. Instead I bet the
teaser and won. If you think a game's going under, why would you not want
6 more points to play with?

First of all , you lose SO MUCH moneywise when you bet a teaser , and
betting under on a teaser has its risks , especially when a game gets out
of hand or there are scores at the end in "garbage time ".

When you tease a game down and bet it over , and you get over your number
. you always win from there . You can bet a game and when it is in
contention , be absolutely correct about the pace of a game , yet get
fucked at the end by a "give up" score , which means nothing . I just dont
think that betting under on a teaser is all that wise .

It doesnt mean that you have to bet it over , I just think that there are
better spots for betting unders .

Years ago , I saw some stats about betting 2 team teasers and betting 2
team parlays .. and you were light years better off betting the parlay and
getting the extra money (when you win ) rather than having the extra 7
points on a teaser and laying a price .

Doggy is easily confused. Just let it be.

Quiet!! I'm genuinely curious to hear his answer. I'm trying to figure
out if it will be "I was trolling" or "you wouldn't understand if I
explained it anyway, so I'm not going to." His responses seem to fall
about 50/50 between some variation of those two.
