It certainly seems like a lot more than it is. Let's break it down and preview how it unfolds with Eagles-Texans on Thursday.

PointsBet Offer: Eagles-Texans TNF

Unlike their MLB counterparts, the Eagles and Texans aren't exactly playing on even ground. There isn't great value to bet on either side of such a lopsided matchup, so this is a great opportunity to focus on player props.

Philadelphia Eagles: -750 at PointsBet

The Eagles are a ghastly 14-point favorite. Between Miles Sanders and Jalen Hurts, this game should a rushing-yard lottery hit for the Eagles offense. The Eagles have put pedals to the metal early in contests this season.

We could see lots of noise in the first half and a coast to double zeros in the second. This would give ample opportunity for Sanders to rack up extra yardage once the Eagles carry a comfortable lead.

A.J. Brown exploded in Week 8 recording 156 yards and three scores. His blossoming rapport with Hurts should only continue against such an appetizing secondary. Although the Eagles should do most of their damage through the air, Brown should still see a healthy serving of red zone targets.

Houston Texans: +500 at PointsBet 

Davis Mills hasn't been efficient through the air this season. With Philly's strong coverage on the outside from James Bradberry and Darius Slay, things will not get easier for him on Thursday. This Houston offense doesn't necessarily provide Mills with the best tools, either. No. 1 wideout Brandin Cooks will be absent along with Nico Collins to make things worse.

It's best to assume Daemon Pierce will be put to the test with a busy workload. The rookie tailback has been progressively improving — rushing for 80+ yards in four of his last five games. The Titans figured out how to cap the Texans' only threat in Week 8 and it's easy to assume the Eagles can do the same.

Miles Sanders Over 79.5 Rush Yards-110
Jalen Hurts Over 41.5 Rush Yards-110
A.J. Brown ATD+105

The Promo & This Parlay Bet

You receive up to a $100 free bet each day that you lose your first bet of the day.

The free bets you get back will be equal to however much you lost (if you bet less than $100).

If I sign up Thursday and deposit $200 and bet $100 of it on this Eagles-Texans parlay, here's what happens:

  • The parlay wins: I win $499 and keep my $100 bet stake. I also still have $100 I haven't used yet. I've got a total of $699.
  • The parlay loses: I get a $100 free bet the next day.

In order to get free bets back if I lose, I can only bet cash on my first bet of each day. I wage another $25 of my real money on Boston College +290 to upset Duke on Friday.

Here's how Friday would go:

  • Boston College wins: I win $72.50.
  • Boston College loses: I get $25 back in free bets (remember, bets below $100 will be refunded as that exact amount if the bet loses).

This continues throughout days 3-5 of your PointsBet account should you take advantage and bet each day.

Also, the free bets disappear after seven days.
