Free Bets for Maryland Bettors
So how do free bets work? Think of it like this — FanDuel spots your bet, and if it wins, you keep the profits, but they keep the bet amount. If it loses, it just goes away.
Here's an example. Say I had $100 in free bets and put it all on the Titans moneyline against the Packers on Thursday Night Football. Tennessee is priced at +140 as of Thursday morning.
- If the Titans win, I'll profit $140, but I don't keep the original $100.
- If the Titans lose, the $100 goes away.
With free bets, it's wise to seek higher lines — you see more expected value over time. Expected value is the margin between the real odds of something happening and the odds posted by the sportsbook.
Understanding the No-Sweat Promo
What about the no-sweat bet for users not in Maryland? How does that work?
If your first bet wins, you keep the profit and bet amount. And the promo is effectively over.
But if your first bet loses, you'll be refunded in free bets. Let's use that Titans example again:
- If you deposit and bet $500 on the Titans as your first bet, and Tennessee wins, you'll profit $700 and keep your original $500 bet.
- If the Titans lose, you'll get $500 back in free bets.
Here's why our Sean Koerner likes the Titans tonight:
Tonight’s matchup sets up perfectly for the Titans and Mike Vrabel, who’s 20-7 against the spread as an underdog of 3 or more. The Packers struggle to defend the run and will be missing two of their top defenders tonight, as well as coming off a tough performance against Dallas. Having to stop Henry after playing 79 plays just four days prior is not ideal.
The Packers offense could struggle to move the ball if they keep their run-heavy game plan. If either Bakhtiari and/or Jenkins miss the game, I’ll like this bet even more.
Either way, I love the fact we are getting the key number of 3.5 here as this should be a close, low-scoring game. I think the Titans have a good chance of winning this outright, but I like the added insurance of winning even if they lose by three.
As of Wednesday night, PointsBet and DraftKings has Titans +3.5 posted. Check out our live odds page to see when others follow.

Signing up at FanDuel
FanDuel makes it super simple to sign up. Here's how:
- Use this link, no FanDuel promo code required (the link includes what you need!)
- Enter all your real signup information (name, address, etc.)
- Deposit using a bank account, credit card, or PayPal
- Make your first bet!
You can do everything but bet from the state you live in — sign up, withdraw, deposit, etc. You just can't bet until you're inside state lines of a legal state.
So if you place a bet on Sunday Night Football and then leave the state Sunday afternoon, you can still withdraw on Monday if it wins.
Here's an FAQ on everything you need to know about traveling to a legal betting state.
