FanDuel Ohio Promo Code Fetches $3,000 No-Sweat Bet on Heat-Cavaliers, All Tuesday NBA article feature image

FanDuel OH 01/31/2023

Tuesday’s Eastern Conference bout between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat arrives with a FanDuel Ohio promo code that allots $3,000 in total value on this game or any other around the league.

So this means that bettors in Ohio or any other state can place any wager up to $3,000 at FanDuel Sportsbook for Tuesday’s docket of games. And if the bet loses, they’ll be reimbursed with the amount they lost in bonus bets.

It’s good to note that there’s no code needed (or promo field in the FanDuel Sportsbook checkout flow).

Here’s a quick example before we discuss further: I bet $1,000 on the Heat to win straight up at +146 moneyline odds. If Miami wins, the bet would return a $2,460 payout, including the $1,000 I bet. If Cleveland emerges, I’d get my $1k back in bonus bets.

A Guide to FanDuel’s Promo Code

This offer is live in both Ohio and all other legalized sports betting states.

Let’s talk about how we can use the offer to our advantage with Tuesday’s selection of NBA.

Betting for Bonus Bets

We can never stress our key bonus betting strategy enough, which is to place you wagers on plus money. It benefits your pockets in the long run as opposed to always taking the juice.

In the meantime, we also suggest to follow sharp action. Those are the bettors that have made names for themselves with great track records. You can identify sharp action by finding where reverse line movement is: Lines move in opposite directions of the betting percentages because the market notes how sharp bettors are betting. Action’s PRO Report is a good tool for identifying these trends.

OK, let’s put together a bet for Tuesday’s Heat-Cavaliers game.

These two rest at sixth and fifth, respectively, in the Eastern Conference race. The last meeting on Nov. 20 resulted in a 113-87 Cleveland blowout. Cleveland has had an inconsistent January, but it remains an above .500 team both SU (31-21) and ATS (26-24-2). Miami (28-23) won three of its last four contests, but hasn’t had the same success ATS at 19-29-3.

Jacob McKenna made a sound argument for the Cavaliers to cover against the Heat again Tuesday evening:

Both Cleveland and Miami boast a great defense, but the gap in offensive production between the two teams leans heavily in Cleveland’s favor. I believe that will give the Cavaliers the edge in this matchup.

Cleveland has also been the most dominant team against the spread at home this year. The Cavs’ dominance on both ends has allowed them to have an ATS record of 17-8-1 at home this season (TeamRankings), while Miami’s ATS record on the road is just 10-13-1.

Jimmy Butler is also questionable for this matchup, which would certainly not help Miami’s struggling offense. His status is something to keep our eyes on.

I like Cleveland to continue its against-the-spread dominance in this one even if Butler is available for Miami. I would play the spread to 6.5.

FanDuel has the Cavs at -4.5, so we’d be playing the alternate spread here. This gives us more attractive plus-money odds at +120.

A $1,000 bet on this returns the $2,200 payout. But if they don’t cover, as mentioned above, we get the $1k back in our accounts.

But bonus bets aren’t hard cash. They can only be used to bet with; let’s take a closer look.

Using Bonus Bets on Longshots

In the case of a loss, say we have our $1k in bonus bets. So once again, we want plus money to maximize returns over time.

Keeping the theme of the alternate spread alive, let’s turn to Pelicans-Nuggets at 10 p.m. ET.

The market has the point spread set at around 6.5 points. Kenny Ducey makes the case for shaving a point off in the Pelicans’ favor:

There are too many variables here for me to get interested in Denver. The line is on the move towards the Pelicans, and I’d continue to follow the money until the number gets inside of 5.5 points.

I’d expect a better game out of McCollum this time around, given he’s averaged 24.8 points since Williamson was injured and with the Nuggets’ struggles against opposing point guards. The likelihood of a big night increases if Murray misses this one, too.

Denver has gotten abused on the glass over the last eight games, ranking 18th in the NBA, and it also was taken to school by New Orleans down low the last time these sides met.

The combination of a big McCollum night, ownership of the paint and the potential absence of Murray has me strongly leaning towards taking the points here.

Pelicans +5.5 gets us to +102 odds, so we’ll take it. Let’s use $500 of the $1k in bonus bets on them to cover this alternate spread. Here’s how things shake out:

  • If the Pelicans cover 5.5, we see a $510 payout and the $100 stake is taken back by FanDuel.
  • If the Pelicans do not cover 5.5, we lose the $500 and profit nothing.
