Seem confusing? Let’s break it down further below using some bets from Vikings-Commanders at 1 p.m. ET.
An In-Depth Look at Barstool’s Promo
There’s a lot of promotion language thrown around amongst books, so we broke them down for you here for reference.
Let’s indulge in this one with Barstool. First let’s breakdown how these teams stack up before choosing a bet.
Minnesota Vikings: -177 at Barstool Sportsbook
The Vikings may be 6-1, but might be the luckiest team in the NFL. They’ve won four of their six contests by one possession. And aside from the Eagles, it’s been a cake walk into Week 9. The Commanders won’t be the team to break that trend, but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for an upset.
Justin Jefferson has had three 100+ receiving yards games heading into Week 9. Despite this, he only has two touchdowns from trusty Kirk Cousins so far — and they both occurred in Week 1. Jefferson is due and this Washington secondary has been particularly vulnerable against the pass.
Washington Commanders: +143 at Barstool Sportsbook
It looks as if Carson Wentz’s injury was a surge of fresh air for the Commanders offense. Since, Washington slayed the likes of Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers before a game-winning, clock-waning drive from Taylor Heinicke to beat the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8.
Terry McLaurin is picking things up with Heinicke. McLaurin has gotten an uptick in targets and grabbed his first touchdown since Week 1 since the quarterback switch. His clutch 33-yard catch that put the Commanders on the 1-yard line to win the game in Week 9 was a career highlight; that play should propel McLaurin back to confidence.
Bets, Yards & Bonus Cash
Bonus cash is allotted once your bet has settled.
So, let’s say that you bet $25 on Commanders to upset at +143.
- If the Commanders win: You win about $35.75, and keep the original $25. And you’ll get the $150 in free bets.
- If the Commanders don’t win: You lose $25, but get the $150 in free bets.
Free Bets & Opportunity
We stress that the effective way to use free bets is on plus-money wagers. The bets will lose more often, but you’ll get more expected value over time.
In short, expected value means the margin between the real odds of something happening and the what the sportsbook says the odds are.
So plus-money it will be.
Once Vikings-Commanders locks down the $150 in free bets, you can use them from the late Sunday window through Monday night.
We’ll break the $50 into these three individual underdog bets for the sake of it.
|Cardinals ML (W)||+114||$28.5|
|Titans ML (L)||+420||$0|
|Saints ML (W)||+121||$30.25|
What’s advantageous is that Barstool allows bettors to keep bonus cash if they win — other books deny that. So you’ve profited 33.75 and still have another $100 in bonus cash that you can recycle.
