Barstool Sportsbook Promo Code ACTNEWS1000 Gets $1,000
Alas, the MLB Postseason has arrived with four star-studded Wildcard matchups on Friday and Barstool Sportbook promo code ACTNEWS1000 can be used on any game to get a $1,000 sign-up bonus for new users.
The $1,000 comes as a risk-free bet — aka a player bonus in Barstool’s terms.
Here’s how it works.
How do the Barstool promo code and free bets work?
Before I get into it, here’s a quick guide to understand the differences of these promos before signing up and betting.
Also, we always suggest to use promo bets on plus-money wagers. The higher the line, the more value you’ll see.
Now this is how risk-free bets work with Barstool:
- If your first bet wins: you keep the winnings and your deposit
- If your first bet loses: you’ll get refunded in bonus cash (aka free bets) equal to that first wager.
Game 1 of Rays-Guardians is headlined by the battle of the Shane’s on the mound; McClanahan vs. Bieber — the heavyweights of two of the league’s most seasoned pitching staffs.
Between the depth that both of these bullpens possess, this pitching matchup could very well play as the deciding edge to win the series. The Rays offense has found avid success against Bieber while Guardians have not been anything to write home about against left-handed pitching this season.
When it comes down to how both of these teams will hit against the other’s ace, our MLB expert, Tony Santori relays that the Rays hold the edge.
McClanahan boasts stronger metrics and the Rays hit better against Bieber than the Guardians do against McClanahan. In the Tampa Bay section, I mentioned how McClanahan’s splits improved on the road during the day.
The same can’t be said about Bieber. In day games, he possesses a 3.29 ERA and in home games his ERA is 3.22.
As of Thursday afternoon, 60% of the bets and 55% of the handle are on the Guardians. This makes sense considering Cleveland is a short home favorite with Bieber on the mound, but give me McClanahan as an underdog in Game 1.
Pick: Rays Moneyline (+100)
So, let’s say you’re willing to deposit and bet $400 on Tampa to beat Cleveland.
- If Tampa wins: You keep the original $400, and profit $400. You’ve got $800.
- If Tampa loses: You get $400 back in bonus cash (referred to as free bets at other books).
Say that Tampa loses Game 1 on Friday.
Your $400 in bonus cash could come in handy when No. 25 LSU plays host to an undefeated No. 8 Tennessee on Saturday afternoon.
Despite two tough secondaries, this SEC battle could become a barn burner featuring plenty of air attack according to our NCAA Football expert, Collin Wilson:
Action Network projects this game as a pick’em with a total of 75. There’s a route for this game to have plenty of points, especially with Daniels expected to take aim at Tennessee’s secondary.
While the Volunteers executed in limiting Florida’s Richardson in zone-read rushing attempts, Daniels should have similar success downfield in the RPO game.
Tennessee also continues to struggle with penalties, falling outside the top 100 in penalties per game.
Although both defenses have been excellent at limiting scoring opportunities on sustained drives, there are issues in containing explosive plays. Look for an aggressive LSU passing game to attack a Tennessee coverage unit that has struggled all season, while the Volunteers look to explosive plays in passing downs.
Pick: LSU +2.5 + Over 65 Total Points (+250)
- If the parlay hits: You’ll win $1,000 ($400 x 2.5), and keep the $400 in bonus cash. That’s what makes Barstool unique — other books don’t let you keep the bonus cash after winning with it.
- If the parlay misses: You end up with $0.
You must use your bonus cash within 30 days, or it will go away. And you cannot wager on anything longer than -200 odds, or else your bonus cash won’t convert to real cash.
