Fanatics Sportsbook Sign-Up Bonus Offers $200 Value in Massachusetts, Ohio, TN, Maryland Thursday
You'll just have to place $5 or more bet on any market or event taking place Thursday after sign-up. The value is given to you in bonus bets, which are not unlike bonus value from any other sportsbooks we write about.
Since Fanatics Sportsbook is momentarily in a beta version, there's a survey and then a signup code is emailed to you before getting started.

What is the Fanatics Beta?
The only difference between the Fanatics beta platform and any other sportsbook user experience is the survey at the beginning. It's four steps and just asks for basic information.
Fanatics acquired PointsBet Sportsbook in May, which will give them an edge in spreading across the U.S. market at a quicker pace. They will offer all the same features you’re used to playing with on the industry-leading sportsbooks.
The four aforementioned states are independent from the PointsBet acquisition. PointsBet will complete the sale in August and then Fanatics will launch in PointsBet’s current states over the next year, until May 2024.
Using Bonus Bets at Fanatics: SCF Game 3
OK, so once your bet of $5 or greater settles, you'll have $200 in bonus bets to use. The +EV betting guide believes a prop in the +300 to +700 range is the sweet spot for earning a strong return on investment.
Thursday Bonus Bet Example:
Matthew Tkachuk is tied for third with 10 goals in the NHL Playoffs through 18 games. He's the most popular player to place an Anytime Goal Scorer bet leading up to the Final. Tkachuk scored in Game 2 despite receiving two 10-minute game misconduct penalties. He scored four goals in as many games in the previous series and there's no question a player that's averaging almost three shots per game will get opportunities in Game 3 as the series shifts back to Sunrise, Fla.
Tkachuk is priced at +135 to score a goal Thursday. We'll couple that with Greg Liodice's thoughts on why the Panthers should be able to crack Adin Hill on home ice:
Game 3 will make or break this series. I think the extra day off helps the Panthers a lot more than most believe. Coach Paul Maurice is one of the better motivators in the league, and an extra day to solve the Golden Knights might be just what the doctor ordered.
Of course, it’ll be hard to solve Hill, who has stopped 62 of the 66 shots thrown his way. However, despite his incredible postseason showing, I think Hill is due for a clunker. There were a few games against Edmonton and Dallas where Hill has looked human, and I think Game 3 in Florida will be that spot in this series.
It’s hard to envision Vegas folding. I can see them making it interesting, even pushing this game into overtime, but in the end, it will be the Panthers sending the hometown faithful home happy.
In fact, 56% of public bettors believe the Panthers will answer Thursday to cut the deficit to 2-1.
Tkachuk ATG and Panthers ML in a two-leg parlay comes out to +323 odds. Using $100 of bonus bets at Fanatics, we would either net $323 in profits or nothing. We will not keep the bonus bets in either scenario.
