Thanksgiving Bet-Get NFL Promo: Giants-Cowboys
Once you've signed up for Barstool and plugged in the ACTNEWS150 promo, you're ready to place your first bet.
The minimum bet is $20 in order to secure the $150.
Win or lose, you still get $150 in bonus cash, but you'll still want to place an educated bet.
In the interest of doing that, let's look at some key storylines in Giants-Cowboys before placing a wager with Barstool.
Dallas Cowboys: -435 at Barstool Sportsbook
The Cowboys served the league's best record Minnesota Vikings the most embarrassing score of 2022 with a 40-3 decimation. Tony Pollard was a big chunk of that, as he has been nothing short of sensational in his last four games with Dallas. He's posted 100+ total yards in each of them while scoring six times. Furthermore, his counterpart Ezekiel Elliot is historically dominant against the Giants — averaging 81.8 yards through 11 career meetings with nine scores.
Dak Prescott had a respectable bounce-back effort in Week 11 with an 88% completion rate, two touchdowns and no turnovers. It's clear that his receivers show their best when he is healthy, as CeeDee Lamb has scored three times and amassed 342 yards in Prescott's four games back. Lamb scored with 87 yards in the early season 23-16 win over the Giants — and that was with Cooper Rush.
New York Giants: +330 at Barstool Sportsbook
For all of Pollard's acclaim heading into Thursday, Saquon Barkley is the spearhead for the Giants renaissance in 2022. Just when everyone thought his peak had come and gone several years back, Barkely sits at second in league rushing with 953. The fifth-year back has six scores on the year, but only two in his seven career games against Dallas. He'll continue to be New York's most effective offensive tool, but Dallas ranks No. 3 in rushing touchdowns allowed.
As far as pass catchers go, Darius Slayton has been able to pick up the slack for one of the league's weaker receiving corps. He saw 10 targets when the Giants were trailing against Detroit in Week 11 and will likely see another bunch if Dallas should jump ahead in the first half Thursday. Slayton has 181 yards and a touchdown in his last two games.
How This Promo Will Unfold
Let's use these notes to create a parlay in order to heighten our line. Say you deposit the minimum $20 and place this bet with the Barstool promotion ACTNEWS150:
|Tony Pollard ATD||-159|
|CeeDee Lamb Over 77.5 Receiving Yards||-113|
|Saquon Barkley Over 71.5 Rush Yards||-117|
|Darius Slayton Over 3.5 Receptions||-165|
There are two outcomes and here's how they would play out:
|Bet||Profit||Money in Acct.|
|Parlay hits||$210 + $150||$380|
|Parlay misses||$150 in bonus cash||$150 bonus cash|
Bonus Cash With Barstool
Bonus cash is used for placing bets, not withdrawing.
Fortunately, Barstool allows bettors to hold onto their bonus cash if the bet wins. Other books usually will take it away after use.
Like we previously mentioned, you'll have the $150 whether your Thanksgiving bet wins or loses. The bonus cash appears in your account once the bet has been settled.
So, you've got $150 and you place all of it on the Patriots to get a gutsy defensive win over the Vikings at 8:20 p.m.
This is how things would go:
- Patriots win: You win $495 and get to keep the $150 in bonus cash for a total of $645.
- Canada loses: You're at $0.
Barstool's 'Bet $1, Get $100' Maryland Promo
If you're in Maryland, Barstool's promo code ACTNEWSMD is live for in-state users to bet $1 and get $100 in bonus cash.
This offer is actually a risk-free bet that also gets the $100 in bonus cash no matter what, so there's double-sided perks.
Let's try the same Giants-Cowboys example for ACTNEWSMD. You deposit and bet the minimum $10 on the +1050 priced parlay listed above:
- If the parlay hits, you win $105 ($10 x 10.50), keep your $10 deposit and get $100 in bonus cash. You now have $215 in your account.
- If the parlay misses, Barstool stakes your $10 plus hands an extra $100 in free bets. You have $110 after depositing — and technically losing — only $10.
