just did a 2 game 4 pt teaser 200 to win 217.  Later I tried to figure out if getting those 8 pts at that price is even worth it.  I came up with a similar situation using a 2 game parlay at the juice that a 4 point adjustment would be, which I roughly estimated that it couldn't be more than -210 but lets just say its -220 for each game.  So all you need to risk in order to win 217 for a 2 game parlay is roughly 100-103 or so.  I'd much rather risk 100 than 200 to win the same amount any day! So in other words, teasers are sucker bets, but in some situations, i guess you really need those extra points.

If you 'need' those extra points it just means you have not chosen a strong enough pick.

Teasers are defined in and around itself. They are precisely what they're called- Teasers. The points seem appealing, but at the end of the day- if you make the right decision going into the bet- chances are you wouldn't require the additional cushion. Plus the payout sucks- capping is hardwork.
