Ohio residents have a new sportsbook with ESPN BET launching today. New users in the state can grab a $250 bonus bet with the ESPN BET Ohio promo code ACTNEWS. This offer isn't exclusive to the Buckeye State, as the ESPN BET promo code is available in 17 states.

New users must enter the promo code ACTNEWS to claim the $250 bonus. They won't be eligible to score the offer if they don't use a promo code. Bettors can wager any amount for their first bet to score the bonus bet. And after downloading the app, click "sign up" instead of "log in", even if you have an old Penn account.

ESPN BET doesn't provide the bonus in one $250 payout. Instead, they give customers four increments of $50 immediately after their first bet. The final $50 bonus increment comes within 24 to 48 hours. The bonus bets are eligible for any sporting event at ESPN BET.

We'll provide a bonus bet example for tonight's CBB Champions Classic between Kansas and Kentucky. Users in legal ESPN BET states can use the promo code ACTNEWS for any sport.

ESPN BET OH Promo Code: Bet on CBB Tuesday

The CBB Champions Classic has a pair of exciting matchups tonight, with the nightcap featuring No. 1 Kansas taking on No. 17 Kentucky. Both teams have taken care of business with a pair of blowout victories. We should see a competitive game tonight, and you can tune into the action at 9:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.

ESPN BET has Kansas as a 6.5-point favorite, with the over/under at 147.5. The key to using a bonus bet is finding value because the stake goes away no matter the outcome of your bet.

Sometimes, it's not about which team you believe will win or cover the spread. Bettors will have more expected value on a bigger longshot, which is one of the best ways to use a sportsbook bonus.

  • Betting Pick: Kentucky ML (+250)

Kentucky should have a tough time facing the best team in college basketball, but they present enough value to suffice our bonus bet. The Champions Classic best bets from Action Network like the Wildcats to cover the spread, so a close game could lead to a potential upset.

Bettors in Ohio or any legal ESPN BET state will have multiple $50 bonus bet increments if they place a first bet ahead of Kansas vs. Kentucky. Remember, the bonus stake goes away no matter if your bet results in a win or loss.

Let's say we place a $50 bonus bet on the Kentucky ML (+250). Bettors would have a $125 profit if Kentucky wins, but a loss means we have nothing.
