Once you get the free bets, you can use them on anything. So place a $1 bet on the earliest possible event, and start betting on the house right after that.
Confused? Don’t worry—we’ll explain more below.
Getting the Free Bets
There’s nothing too complex about this offer — just bet $1 on any game, and get $200 in free bets to use on anything else you’d like.
So as an example, I’ll deposit $10 and put $1 on Ghana moneyline against Portugal in Thursday’s World Cup match. If Ghana wins, I profit $7.50. If they lose, I’ll still get $200 in free bets and I’ll have $9 in cash left in my account.
How Free Bets Work
So how do free bets work? It’s like the sportsbook spots you for the bet, and if it wins, you give back the free bet, but keep the profits. Bet365 splits up its free bets into any increment, so you can put $1 on one bet, $25 on another, or use all $200 at once.
Let’s use an example from Thursday’s NFL Thanksgiving slate. After claiming the $200 on Portugal-Ghana, I’ll use $25 of the free bet pool on an anytime TD for Justin Jefferson in Patriots-Vikings, priced at +110 at Bet365.
- If Jefferson scores a touchdown, I’ll win $27.50. And, I’ll also still have $175 in free bets remaining, too.
- If Jefferson does not score a touchdown, I lose that $25, and will have $175 in free bets remaining.
|No Jefferson TD||$9||$175|
Terms & Conditions
Here are the important points to know about this offer:
- States available: New Jersey, Colorado, Ontario
- You’ll get the free bets one hour after your first $1 or more bet settles.
- You have 30 days to place your first bet once you make your account, or the offer will be forfeited.
- Free bets will be forfeited if your account is inactive for 90 days — aka you don’t login.
- You cannot bet on opposite sides of the same game with free bets to guarantee a profit. So, you can’t bet $25 each on both the Vikings and Patriots to win.
Bet365 is one of the biggest sportsbook brands in the world and has been patient with its entry into the U.S. market.
How to Use Free Bets on Thursday
Looking at this game with an odds perspective, the bookmakers have Uruguay as the moneyline favorite with -138 odds to go with a total of 2.5 goals. I do want to back the South American side, but I’m looking for a better price.
With that said, my best bet is a Single-Game Parlay, pairing a victory by La Celeste with the total flying over one goal at +137.
I have big question marks about how this Korean side is going to stack up against a very talented Uruguay midfield. I also wonder just how fit Son really is after having surgery earlier this month.
I think the South American country has a great shot at topping Group H, and I’m happy to get them at a plus-money price in their opening match.
Non-Cowboys Thanksgiving favorites since 2006 are 28-8 ATS (78%), covering by more than a touchdown, and favorites against the Lions are 10-3 ATS (77%) during that span. Favorites of a TD or more are even better at 17-4 ATS (81%).
If you can wait to bet live, the Bills tend to start slow in the first quarter — you might be able to get a line below a TD. But traditionally these Thanksgiving games are circled on the calendar and that means we get the best version of each team — and the best version of the Bills should roll the Lions.
The Vikings are one of those Thanksgiving favorites, and night favorites are 11-4 ATS (73%) all-time on Turkey Day. The holiday has also been a great occasion to bet public favorites. Teams getting over half the tickets are 25-8 ATS (76%) on Thanksgiving, and the Vikings are getting about two-thirds of them as of Wednesday morning.
I don’t trust Cousins enough in primetime (11-17 ATS) despite the positive Thanksgiving trends, especially since Belichick covers 61% of the time against NFC foes — 65% as an underdog and 67% with four days of rest. As a Vikings fan, I don’t need a side here to ruin my holiday night.
Instead, the under looks like the best play. Those offensive line injuries on both sides will hinder already shaky QBs, and the Pats defense is on a roll. Thursday unders are 17-10 (63%) since the start of last season, and primetime unders are 20-13 (61%) this fall.
Then there’s this Thanksgiving treat: Turkey Night unders are 11-4 all time, a 73% hit rate with seven in a row. That tryptophan is kicking in early.
