College Football 10 Point Teasers

Teasers are as popular as ever, but my biggest concern is that most people don’t think about whether or not they are actually a good bet. I wanted to find out just what lines were best for three-team 10-point teasers.

I looked at every college football game from 1989 to 2011 to come up with my data. First, I examined home favorites, road favorites, home underdogs, and road underdogs, found out how many times a game had each line (up to -15) and then looked at how many times a 10-point teaser would have resulted in that game winning (or pushing).

From there I calculated the cover rate and compared it to the winning percentage needed to profit based on normal three-team 10-point teaser odds (-120) at which you would need to hit at a 81.70% rate or better to show a profit. Cover rates that hit above that percentage have been highlighted for your convenience.

As you can clearly see, there are very few times when at 10-point three team teaser has historically been profitable on a consistent basis. While you shouldn’t bet any of these numbers blindly, you can see which line have been better to tease than others.
