Hey Matt good luck with your plays today.....

Straight is just what you did above - a play on one team to cover

Parlay is a bet on 2 or more teams to cover where you have to get all correct to win...example above if you bet Charlotte +7 and over in a parlay and get both correct a $100 bet will normally pay $260 depending on the odds..

A teaser is a bet on 2 or more teams to cover but you get to move the line...a standard teaser in hoops allows you to move the line 4 points so with the same example you would get Charlotte +11 and over 181...again you have to win both to win the bet - normal 2 team teasers pay the same as a single straight bet or -110...you can do multiple team teasers at various levels of points for different payouts....

Hope that helps and please post any other questions - always good to get a refresher even for us old folks - LOL

    Thx very much! I'm working on it!!!

    When I was looking for the definition of "Parlays", I found the website Parlayz: you can build your prediction model. Do you use prediction model?

    Hey Matt actually I don't play parlays very often and if I do it's very small....I have a hard enough time getting one game right much less 2 or more at a time - LOL....Good Luck!
