How This Promotion Unfolds

If you’re new to sports betting, sometimes all of this jargon can make promotions sound like rocket science. They’re not. In fact, they’re all quite simple. This just means that you place your first bet at Caesars and if it loses, you get the money back in the form of bet credits, which we’ll also discuss.

Purdue Boilermakers (+105) vs. Ohio State Buckeyes (-125) 

The No. 1 Boilermakers (13-1) dropped their first loss of their campaign in their last contest against Rutgers. Now they must face a hot No. 24 Buckeyes (10-3) team that’s riding a three-game hot streak into Thursday. It will be Purdue’s brawny defensive front that finds its success with relentless rebounding against a proficient Ohio State offense that’s jam-packed with playmakers.

Books have this set so close, it’s almost a Pick Em’. The Buckeyes are point-and-a-half favorites despite their lower ranking. Mike McNamara gave his thoughts on riding the favorite Thursday night at 7 p.m. in Action’s six best CBB bets for Thursday column:

The Buckeyes are quietly playing as well as any team in the Big Ten, with a nice mix of seasoned veterans and talented freshmen.

Chris Holtmann’s team has been lethal offensively, checking in at second in Ken Pom’s AdjO rankings.

Brice Sensabaugh should be able to attack the Purdue guards and make plays in the paint, and Sean McNeil could be in for a big night against a Purdue team that has been allowing some open looks from distance.

Zach Edey will surely get his on the inside for the Boilermakers, but look for Holtmann to limit the Purdue guards and try to take away any clean perimeter looks.

I expect Ohio State to be able to limit the number of second-chance opportunities Purdue gets, with guys like Zed Key and Justice Sueing doing their part to keep Edey and Mason Gillis off the glass.

The Buckeyes’ offense will keep humming along, allowing OSU to outpace Purdue in what should be a fun one in the Schottenstein Center.

Choosing a Wager

So for Thursday’s Purdue-Ohio State pick, let’s go with this: Ohio State ML + Over 140 at +264.

I chose a parlay because the more plus money bets you pick, the more that’s made over time. This is called expected value. We deposit and bet $100. If we win, we get a $264 profit for a $364 payout. In the case of losing, we get the $100 we lost back in bet credits.

Using Caesars Bet Credits

Pretend we lose the Ohio State bet above. We’ve got $100 in bet credits, since that’s what we waged with the promo.

Let’s throw it all (we can split it up if we want to) on the alternate spread for Washtington-Arizona at 11 p.m. The Wildcats are -18.5 favorites, but we’ll expect a three-point tighter loss margin from the Huskies, which would pay +126.

A win for this bet would spell $126 in hard cash, but the $100 in bet credits disappears. A loss means we’re back at square one with $0.
