Barstool Sportsbook Ohio Promo Code ACTNEWSOH Nets $1,100 for NBA Tuesday

Barstool Sportsbook Ohio Promo Code ACTNEWSOH Nets $1,100 for NBA Tuesday article feature image

We’re three days into the new year and legal sports betting in Ohio. New bettors in-state can jump into the action Tuesday with Barstool Sportsbook promo code ACTNEWSOH, which activates up to $1,100 in return value.

This means if you place any bet, you’ll get $100 in Barstool bonus cash regardless of the bet’s outcome. Plus, this will also serve as a “first bet on the house” up to $1,000. So if that first bet you make loses, you’ll also be refunded in bonus cash for whatever you wagered. We’ll break down further examples below for full clarity.

Tuesday presents three NBA matchups that can be targeted with this Barstool promo. We’ll discuss using it with CelticsThunder at 8 p.m. ET and accessing bonus cash.

Betting 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.

Celtics-Thunder Bet

Boston tips off as nine-point favorites over Oklahoma City. The Eastern Conference-leading Celtics have won four of their last five after a mid-December three-game skid, but dropped their first contest of 2023 111-123 to the Nuggets.

The Western Conference bottom-dwelling Thunder is led by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander up and down the court. The 6’6” point guard leads the team in PPG handedly with 30.8 and will be the shepherd for an attempted victory upon losing back-to-back games to close out 2022.

Kenny Ducey wrote that Gilgeous-Alexander is ripe for a bounce-back performance Tuesday, which should point to a healthy output:

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is coming off of a rough outing against an elite Philadelphia 76ers defense where he managed just 14 points on 4-of-15 shooting in 32 minutes, but that won’t scare me off buying the dip here and backing him to hit the over on his point total.

While the Celtics, too, are elite on the defensive end, they’re allowing 22.7 points per game to opposing point guards, which grades out in the middle of the NBA. This also shouldn’t be a defense that Gilgeous-Alexander fears, either, considering he dropped 37 on Boston the last time these two teams met, going 13-for-26 from the field and 2-for-4 from beyond the arc.

Another factor here, and perhaps the biggest one, is that Tuesday will mark the third straight game that Aleksej Pokusevski has missed. When the forward has been off the floor this year, Gilgeous Alexander has seen a 1.2% boost in Usage Rate, the highest of any member of the Thunder rotation, and he’s averaging 2.7 more points per 36 minutes.

I think SGA should be in a solid spot here with a bit more of the ball against a team that hasn’t defended point guards all that well, and this one in particular.

How The Bet Plays Out

Let’s try something fun given the safety net of this promotion. Say we want to bet $25 on Gilgeous-Alexander to record a double-double, which Barstool has posted at +900.

If Gilgeous-Alexander pulls it off, we win $225 plus keep our $25 and get the $100 in bonus cash for a total of $350. If Gilgeous-Alexander doesn’t get the double-double, we still get the $100 bonus plus our $25 back (in 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.

We bet the $100 on the Hornets to beat the Grizzlies Wednesday at 7 p.m., which is priced around +200.

These are our possibilities:

  • Hornets win: We score $200 and keep the $100 in bonus cash for $300 total.
  • Hornets lose: We lose the $100 in bonus cash.

Barstool New User Promo Requirements

Barstool does have some requirements that potential new users have to meet in order to register for their sportsbook. Confirm your eligibility with the checklist below:

  1. Must be 21+ years old

  3. Access to valid deposit method (credit/debit card, bank account, or other accepted medium)

Quick Tip: Betting the Middle

Unsure of which side you want to back? A middle is a play where a bettor bets both sides of a bet — both featuring differing lines. The goal is to win both, but this strategy ensures that at least one will win at the very least. The chance to place a middle bet is when a line changes after the initial bet was placed.

So if we bet on Celtics -7.5 before books changed it to -9, we could take Thunder +9 afterwards and hope both bets clear. Boston would need to win by eight points for the bet to clear.
