FanDuel Promo Code Scores $1,000 for Friday CFB, MLB Playoffs
- Looking to sign up for FanDuel and claim the full promo code offer for this weekend? I've got the quick-and-easy steps below.
- I'll also provide a couple scenarios to illustrate how both no-sweat bets and free bets work.
- Lastly, I'll dive into Houston-Memphis and TCU-Kansas as games you should target for your first bets with FanDuel.
Friday’s lineup of Week 6 NCAA Football and MLB playoff games arrive with a FanDuel promo code that gets new users up to a $1,000 no-sweat bet.
You can sign up with this link — you don’t need a code.
A no-sweat bet means that if you lose your first bet with FanDuel, you’ll be reimbursed whatever amount you waged (anything up to $1,000). If you win, you’ll simply keep your winnings and the money you waged.
How the No-Sweat Bet Works and How to Use it
You can bet any amount up to $1,000 on any game Friday and beyond — college football, MLB playoffs, NFL Week 5, etc. You’ll get refunded whatever that amount is if you should lose your no-sweat bet.
When looking to use this bet, you should always look for plus-money wagers. The higher the line, the more expected value you’ll get from free bets. You’ll get much more expected value that way.
Friday’s marquee matchup between Houston and Memphis will features two skilled quarterbacks that have been pacing high-octane offenses. What’s more is that both teams have had porous secondaries and Seth Henigan vs. Clayton Tune could be in store for a shootout.
Our college football expert, Mike Ianniello, says the passing game is likely to be on high display:
Memphis throws the ball a lot with Seth Henigan and he has tossed nine touchdowns and just one interception. They also have three good running backs and everybody has had success on the ground against the Cougars.
Houston’s offense runs through veteran quarterback Clayton Tune and star wide receiver Tank Dell. Tune has thrown nine touchdowns on the year, with five of them going to Dell.
Both of these teams rank in the top 50 in Finishing Drives on offense and outside of the top 80 at preventing explosiveness on defense. Memphis likes to play fast, and Houston isn’t much slower.
With two quarterbacks I trust and two inexperienced secondaries that I don’t, I’ll play over 57.5 on Friday night.
Since we suggest betting on plus-money, say you combine the over with Memphis at -2.5 to juice up the odds with a parlay.
Pick: Over 57.5 + Memphis -2.5 (+214)
If you deposit and bet $250, here are the two possible avenues:
- If the parlay hits, you win $536.61, and you keep the original $250. You have $786.61 in your account.
- If the parlay doesn’t hit, you get $250 back in free bets.
Let’s go with the second scenario. You have $250 in free bets and look to Saturday’s slate.
You don’t have to bet the whole $250 all at once, but I’m going to with this example to make things easier.
Saturday’s clash of ranked powers in TCU vs. Kansas is another recipe for offensive fireworks. Our college football expert, Collin Wilson, says that while Kansas’ defense has been formidable against the run, they’ve struggled to contain the pass — and TCU has been sensational in the air:
The Horned Frogs should have continued success in executing explosive plays, possibly more through the air than on the ground against Kansas.
Kansas will continue to struggle reading the 3-3-5 defense, relying on explosive plays during passing downs for points.
The jury is still out on the TCU defense, but there is no reason to hop off of a money-making Horned Frogs offense until a legitimate run-stopping defense is the opposition.
Pick: TCU Team Total Over 38.5 + TCU -7 (+145)
- If this parley hits, you get $362.50 in cash ($250 x 1.45) but don’t keep the $250 in free bet money.
- If the parlay misses, you end up with $0.
