Teasers und Parlays
Explanation:
These are sports bet terms. I know them because we live right by Las Vegas, and have friends who bet on football and basketball games. I searched the Internet for sports betting websites in German language and found the 2 terms untranslated. However, I am not sure if a German translation also exists.
Here are the (german) definitions I found:
Parlay:
Ein " Parlay " ist eine Anzahl von zwei oder mehr Teams in einer Kombinationswette.
Teaser:
Eine Teaser Wette ist, wenn man zwei oder mehr Teams in einer Wette kombiniert. Hier werden zusätzliche Punkte der unterlegeneren Mannschaft addiert und vom Favoriten abgezogen.
