Also known as a Reverse Teaser, a Pleaser is a group of side straight bets combined into one bet for higher payoff odds, like a Parlay.
The difference between a Pleaser and a Teaser is that with a Pleaser, the line you bet against for each individual wager is moved against your favor by 6 points.
In other words, a Pleaser is similar to a teaser except that with a pleaser you GIVE AWAY points instead of receiving points. If the regular line is -10 your line with the pleaser would be -16.
Most sports bettors play teasers because of the increased odds in the players favor.

Essentially, you make it more difficult for each wager in the Pleaser to win in return for payoff odds nearly 3 times higher than normal parlay odds. This is the exact opposite of a Teaser. In order to win with a Pleaser, all the bets must win by the new adjusted line. This bet is an excellent way to maximize winnings in games where the lines do not accurately predict the true outcome.
