How Do I Get the ESPN BET Promo Code? Use ACTNEWS for $250 in 17 Live States

ESPN BET is officially underway and new users can sign up with ESPN BET promo code ACTNEWS for $250 in bonus value in Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and 13 other states. The offer is the same no matter which of the 17 ESPN BET states you're in.

You can place a first wager with as little as $1, but you must enter theESPN BET promo code ACTNEWS in order to see the $250 bonus.

The bonus bets will be dispersed into five separate $50 increments for a total of $250. You cannot split them any finer than that amount.

Four of the five increments will be deposited into your account after your first bet is placed. The fifth one will appear within 24-48 hours.

Note that when it comes to betting with bonus value, you will only keep the profits, which are real. Bonus bets are taken back by ESPN BET after use regardless of the bet's result. This is standard across sportsbooks.

We advise betting with them ASAP as they will disappear after seven days without use.

You can use the ESPN BET promo code ACTNEWS on any event listed on the platform for Tuesday's sports schedule.

Wednesday's betting board features plenty of matchups to wager between college basketball, NBA and NHL.

We'll break down a bonus betting pick for Flyers-Hurricanes.

ESPN BET Bonus Bets Pick: Flyers-Hurricanes

The Hurricanes have won six of their last eight games and return home to face a Flyers team that just took back-to-back victories in California, but are dwindling in the Metropolitan Division.

What makes the Canes productive is their dominant puck possession in the offensive zone. Carolina leads the NHL in shot attempt differential at five-on-five, which means its ratio of shots on goal, shots that were blocked and shots that missed the net far outweigh its opponents against them.

Philly is a good defensive team, but they are in the midst of a rebuild and lack the personnel to wear down a Carolina club that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Jacob Slavin leads the 34.13 shots per game Hurricanes with an average of 2.86. He's had at least three in his last three games.

Slavin's 3+ shots prop is set at +158 on Wednesday.

We like looking for odds in this range when utilizing bonus bets because we're seeking higher payout ratios — primarily because bonus bets aren't kept after use.

If we took $100 worth of bonus bets and placed it on Slavin to record three or more shots against the Flyers, we would see $158 in total payout.

Keep in mind that bonus bets expire after seven days at ESPN BET.
