A $10 bet on Ohio State +3.5 at -105 would get the $19.52 payout if the bet hits, but also secure $200 in bonus bets. The $200 in bonus bets from the FanDuel promo code will still be given if the bet loses.

Still need some more context? We've broken down exactly how this FanDuel promotion works using Tuesday's Ohio-State-Illinois tipoff as an example. Plus, we'll break down how you can strategize with bonus bets once you've secured them.

Unlocking FanDuel Bonus Bets: Ohio-State-Illinois

The Buckeyes are looking for a surge after defeating Iowa 93-77 on Saturday. Previous to that, it dropped five straight contests. Granted, all of those losses were by five points or less and they included facing No. 1 Purdue.

Forward standout Zed Key suffered a knee injury at the end of the Iowa win and is questionable to play. He leads Ohio State with 8.1 rebounds and is the third highest point contributor with 12.1. Given the defensive woes that unraveled amidst the skid, losing Key under the boards would be a major vulnerability for Illinois to exploit.

Without Key's services, the Buckeyes would be left to rely even more on their top two scorers: Brice Sensabaugh (17.5) and Justice Sueing (12.9). Sensabaugh will be piggybacking his best performance of the campaign thus far with 27 points against Iowa.

Illinois was beaten handedly by Indiana 85-60 on Thursday, but strung together a four-game win streak beforehand. Terrence Shannon Jr. leads the top-heavy program with 18.1 PPG. The senior guard is also coming off a season-best in the Indiana loss netting 26.

Coleman Hawkins quietly leads the Fighting Illini in other categories with 6.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists.

The Fighting Illini hold a 10-8-1 record ATS and have covered in four of its last five. Through the Buckeyes' troubles, it has covered in only one of its last six and holds an overall 8-11-1 record.

The Pick: Illinois finally has received more than two days rest after playing six straight games with that pace. Without Key, the Buckeyes will be in a tough spot defensively. Shannon Jr. is the major benefactor returning in front of a home crowd. Let's play Shannon Jr. 17.5+ points and Illinois -3.5 at +210.

A $10 bet on this SGP priced at +210 using FanDuel's Ohio promotion will look as such:

How Do Bonus Bets Work?

There's a lot of marketing lingo out there, but FanDuel's bonus bets are pretty straight forward: You keep the profits, but not the stake.

They will appear after the bet settles (72 hours max). You can use them on anything and they don't need to be used all at once. So you can split up $200 into ten $20 bets, or 20 $10 bets and so forth.

The best bonus betting strategy indicates that finding a plus-money wager is most wise.

Looking at the Ohio State-Illinois scenario above, there will be $200 in bonus bets either way. So let's say a $100 bet is placed on Xavier to beat UConn on Wednesday at +285 odds.

A win would bank $285 in profits, but the $100 disappears. There would be $0 profits and the $100 is gone if a loss ensues.

Bonus bets expire if you do not use them within the given window, which is one week. They can’t be used to bet with other FanDuel promotions either.
