Barstool Sportsbook Ohio Promo Code: CFP Title Game Offers for OH Bettors vs. All Other States
The NFL playoff picture makes its final adjustments Sunday; new bettors in the freshly legalized sports betting state of Ohio can use Barstool Sportsbook promo code ACTNEWSOH to snag up to $1,100 in first bet returns.
In layman’s terms, all this means is you receive $100 in Barstool bonus cash regardless of the bet’s outcome. Plus, this promotion has a safety net up to $1,000. So if that first bet you make loses, you’ll also be refunded in bonus cash for whatever you wagered.
This offer can be used in Ohio on any game — CFP national title, NFL this weekend, and more.
How to Bet With ACTNEWSOH
If you’re in Ohio, there’s plenty of value to be unlocked with the code ACTNEWSOH.
Let’s recap the two sides of this:
- If you make a $1 bet, you’ll get $100 in bonus cash no matter what.
- You’ll also get a $1,000 “first bet on the house.” That means if your first wager on the platform loses, you’ll be refunded in Barstool bonus cash equal to whatever you lost.
You’ll want to place a bet larger than $1 bet, because you’ll essentially be forgoing the new player bonus/first bet on the house if you don’t.
Week 18 NFL Betting Preview
There’s a bevy of gripping narratives to transform into bets with the climax of the regular season commencing Sunday. Our experts have divulged insight into waging on every Week 18 storyline; let’s walk through a few.
Anthony Dabbundo on Giants vs. Eagles at 1 p.m. ET:
When a team is in a must-win situation, they often get inflated in the market. Even though it’s not the classic “eliminated team vs. team fighting for their playoff life” spot, the principle remains true. Everyone wants to bet the Eagles with Hurts returning and the Giants seeming to not care about the game.
Even if the Giants rest Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley, it’s still a divisional game and the Eagles offense shouldn’t be expected to snap back to its normal elite self in Hurts’ first game back. The loss of Johnson — who grades out as one of the best linemen in football — is significant in Philadelphia’s attempts to dominate the line of scrimmage.
This is also a prime second-half under spot if the Eagles are playing with the lead. The favorite has no desire to get margin and will want to protect its quarterback, while the underdog has no real incentive to speed up the pace of the game or throw downfield. Those are the perfect ingredients for a narrow, but never-in-doubt Eagles win and a low scoring second half. I’d bet the Giants at +14 or better and look to play the second-half under if Philadelphia has any lead at half.
Cody Goggin on Buccaneers vs. Falcons at 1 p.m. ET:
There’s a possibility this doesn’t work out, but if you have the chance to bet Brady as a four-point underdog against a non-playoff team, you gotta do it. We will know much more closer to game time, but the odds will react to that news, as well, so it’s best to grab this now.
If Brady doesn’t play, there’s still a chance that whoever is under center for Tampa Bay can hang with Ridder. In that case, I would take Tampa Bay at anything under a touchdown.
Cody Goggin on Cowboys-Commanders at 4:25 p.m. ET:
With this mismatch in the trenches, Howell will be battling for his life all game. The pressure will flush him from the pocket a good amount and leave him with ample opportunities to make plays with his legs.
The market doesn’t seem to be expecting the amount of rushing volume that I expect Howell will get. I could see him approaching 10 carries as there may be some designed runs for him mixed in with those scrambles. Young quarterbacks typically have a propensity to bail from the pocket early, especially when under duress, which only helps this bet.
While I’m not confident about whether Howell will be a good NFL quarterback long term, I feel like we will see him show off his legs in his debut.
If his rushing yardage total is posted before the game, there may be a play there, but I also like the +750 that Caesars Sportsbook is offering on Howell to score a touchdown.
The Pick: In combining each of these picks into a three-leg parlay, it pans out to one heck of a longshot: Giants +14 + Bucs -3.5 + Howell ATD priced at +2998.
I deposit and place $100 down on this. It will work as such: If it wins, I bucket a grand $2,998, keep my initial $100 and get the $100 in bonus cash for a total of $3,298. If the parlay doesn’t clear however, I still secure the guaranteed $100 in bonus cash plus get my $100 back — also in the form of bonus cash.
Using the Bonus Cash
Bonus cash is Barstool’s version of credits — except you keep them if the bet wins. That’s unusual for most sportsbooks. Let’s say we’re betting the clean $100 in bonus cash. We might have more than that depending on what happens, but it’s a clean number for the example.
I’ll take the $100 of the received bonus cash and drop it on the Coyotes to upset the Penguins at +175 at 7 p.m. If it wins, I win $175 real cash and keep the $100 in bonus cash. If it loses, I’m out $100.
Quick Tip: What’s a Backdoor Cover?
So you bet the spread on the underdog. The game is a blowout, but in the garbage-time minutes, the underdog scores points where they don’t matter in the game’s outcome, but are enough to quietly cover the spread.
Keep in mind that backdoor covers only apply to betting the underdog. So let’s say we bet the spread on Cardinals +14.5 against the 49ers in Week 18. They’re down 17 points on the final drive of the game and score a touchdown plus the extra point to get them inside the spread. The game would end with a ten-point victory for San Fransisco and Arizona would have pulled off a backdoor cover.
