It's a form of betting where you make a wager on 2 or more "teased" lines, totals, etc...
For instance, Pitt was -5.5 and the total was 42.5. I did a 5.5 "teaser". This means I get an adjusted line (Pitt pick'em and the under 48).
This particular teaser pays +103 if I win. The catch is, they both have to hit. If one loses, the bet loses.
Like a paraly, you can "tease" several plays at whatever number you want. The higher the tease number, the more juice there is, however. Also like parlays, the higher the amount of plays in a teaser, the less juice there is on your play.
Since everyone thinks this is a potential weird game where the worse team could play above their heads, I felt more comfortable with taking the steelers at a lower line. The general consensus on the total was under 43-44, so to complete my teaser, I added the total with it.
You generally want to get teasers so that they are crossing key numbers and aren't crossing zero.
