FanDuel Ohio Promo Code Activates $200 in Bonus Bets for Thursday NBA
FanDuel OH NBA, 01/26/23
Thursday’s back-to-back of NBA on TNT tipoffs will feature Knicks-Celtics and Mavericks-Suns. New bettors in Ohio can use Action Network’s FanDuel Ohio promo code to secure $200 in bonus bets.
There’s no actual FanDuel promo code needed — just use this link from FanDuel Sportsbook, deposit $10, bet at least $5 and you’ll get $200. This same offer is available everywhere FanDuel operates; just use this link for $150 in bonus bets in other states.
At least $5 can be placed on any bet involving the six slated NBA games, or anything else on Thursday at FanDuel Sportsbook. Then once that first bet settles, you’ll get $200 in bonus bets.
Here’s an example: I bet $50 on the Hornets moneyline to beat the Bulls at +190. I’d see a $95 profit and $200 in bonus bets if Charlotte wins, plus I keep my original $50. If Charlotte loses, I’ll still get the $200.
The Knicks scraped together a 105-103 statement victory against the Cavaliers Tuesday. New York will be given a 6.5 point handicap heading into Thursday’s primetime meeting against the Celtics.
Part 1: Securing FanDuel’s Bonus Bets
Whether we’re in Ohio or not, we’ll want to deposit $10 and bet at least $5 on anything. The bet must settle first.
New York Knicks (+8.5) vs. Boston Celtics (-8.5)
The Knicks have lost four of their last five and look at the uphill climb of facing the Celtics in Boston. New York does bring a balanced lineup with three players averaging above 20 points in Julius Randle (24.6), RJ Barrett (20.2) and Jalen Brunson (22.3). But Boston’s front is supreme in both offense and defense. It’s boasting a top three club in 3-point shooting and top five in blocks (5.4), turnovers (13.6) and points (117.6).
After sleighing to a nine-game streak, Boston is due to get back in the win column reeling from back-to-back losses to Orlando and Miami. in contrast to the output, the Celtics are limiting opponents to 112 points per game, which puts them at a net rank of No. 1 in points.
New York is formidable in defending against 3-point shooting: It’s limiting opponents to 34.5%, but ironically shooting at the exact same percentage — ranking towards dead last in the NBA.
The Celtics took the Nov. 5 meeting 133-118 and are 18-5 at home. With five 20+ point players on the court and the market setting the total relatively low (221.5 at FanDuel), our Jim Turvey suggests why that can be exploited Thursday:
There are lots of different ways we can attack this game. First and foremost, the total of 226.5 is too low. It was 227 for the first matchup and although Robinson also missed that game, Smart, who is worth a point or two to the under, played.
I also really like targeting the Celtics team total. That should come in around 117 or 117.5, but I would play it all the way up to 120.5 (-110). In fact, escalators on either the Celtics team total, or the game total are another great way to attack this game.
Typically, I don’t suggest buying points on an alt line, but in certain cases — when the extremes are being undervalued — I can get behind it. Buying something like over 236.5 (+200) would be a suggested play.
The Pick: Over 236.5 at +200
So, a wager of $10 would net a $30 profit, plus the $200 in bonus bets. A loss would still access the $100.
Part 2: Using FanDuel Bonus Bets Wisely
These can be bet on anything. They don’t need to be used all at once, so you can split them into whatever increments. 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.
We know the spread is always tempting, but if you’re looking to capitalize on bonus bets, the optimal strategy is taking plus money. Whether that’s a long shot or a same game parlay.
The higher the line, the more expected value you gather over time. Expected value means the margin between the real odds of something happening and the odds posted by the sportsbook.
Here’s an example to think about from Action Network:
A coin toss is always the easiest example — the fair odds of a coin toss are 50/50 or +100.
- So if you had +120 odds on tails, the EV would be (120-100) * .5.
- That’s $10 expected winnings on a $100 bet, or 10% EV.
If we make 100 of these 10% EV bets we would expect to net $1,000 on those 100 bets.
For the sake of the example, let’s take the Spurs to upset the Clippers at 10:30 p.m. ET. FanDuel is giving this +590 odds. We suggest something more in the +250 to +500 range, but this demonstrates how lucrative bonus bets can be.
We’ll bet $100 of our $200 total. A Spurs upset would would net $590 in real cash that can be used for whatever desired. But the risk kicks in once using bonus bets, so a loss will net nothing.
