It's too bad people are so quick to judge, and just start talking out of their a$$ when they haven't even read the full thread lol It's actually kinda pathetic that someone would even waste precious time doing so.

I've always been intrigued by the ML parlay and teaser propositions, and have wondered for quite some time if they could be profitable. So I look forward to seeing how you do. Keep doing what you're doing, and good luck man.

it's not quite weekly all the time. during football season though it tends to be weekly. there are a lot of podcasts like this one. just do a google search and you will see!

@justchris - it is very possible to be profitable betting teasers. Look up some info online, but the 6 point two team and 10 point 3 team are the most profitable. In order to be profitable though you have to hit around 72 %. If you pick the right games and tease through the key numbers its very doable. The keys to remember are the most common margins of victory, 3,7,6,1,10,4,2, and also are you teasing the right games? In todays NFL road dog is the most profitable play in a teaser. Followed by home dog, then home favorite, then road favorite. If you can find three road or home dogs every week that you can tease through key numbers you should be profitable.
