Commanders-Bears: FanDuel Promo Code Bags $1,000
There are little to no ways to spin Thursday’s Commanders-Bears game in an exciting fashion. However, using FanDuel’s new user promo for up to a $1,000 bet is one of them.
No code is needed — you can sign up with this link.
FanDuel calls this a no-sweat bet; you can wage any amount up to $1,000 on the game with two outcomes:
- If your first bet wins: you keep the winnings and your deposit.
- If your first bet loses: you’ll get refunded in free bets equal to your wager.
I’ve provided some examples and insight on how you could use this opportunity for Thursday’s kickoff.
No-Sweat First Bets With Commanders-Bears
We always suggest betting plus-money wagers when using a betting promotion.
Here’s a play you can consider for Commanders-Bears:
There isn’t much to fawn over in this Commanders offense. A small silver lining would be the potential of rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. Ron Rivera has all the reason to entrust him moving forward. He only averaged 2.4 YPC, but led the backfield last Sunday. This could be the game where we see Robinson Jr. get ample opportunity as the Commanders will likely keep the ball grounded.
Per Sam Farley, who’s taking this bet:
Robinson and the Commanders didn’t manage a rushing TD on Sunday but the Titans have only allowed one rushing TD to a running back all season long. Thursday’s opponents, the Bears, aren’t quite as good as stopping the run and have allowed four rushing TDs to running backs so far, and another one in the receiving game too.
Pick: Brian Robinson Jr. ATD (+225)
Let’s pretend you deposit and bet $500 before the game and place this bet.
- If Robinson Jr. finds the endzone, you win $1,120 and keep your $500. You’d have a total of $1,620.
- If Robinson Jr. doesn’t score, you’ll get back $500 worth of free bets.
How You Can Use Free Bets on Friday
You can’t withdraw free bets as cash. You can place bets with them to win real cash.
Suppose you have your $500 in free bets and look to Friday.
Thursday’s Game 2 of the ALDS between the Guardians and Yankees has been postponed to Friday at 1:08 p.m. ET due to rain.
The Guardians stayed in the ring with the Yankees’ high-powered offense and No. 1 pitcher until midway through Game 1. The Yankees tacked on three runs in the fifth and sixth inning which would make for a 4-1 decision.
The original plans were RHP Shane Bieber to go against LHP Nestor Cortes for Game 2, but the postponement may affect each team’s plan.
Assuming they will stay the same, here’s how these two stack up according to DJ James:
Cortes has above average peripherals in every regard, except Extension and Fastball Velocity. He ranks in the 63rd percentile in Average Exit Velocity and the 75th percentile in Hard-Hit Rate.
Bieber ranks in the 15th and 14th percentiles in both of those, so that is a tad concerning, but he is strong in every other metric, excluding Curve Spin and Fastball Velocity. Basically, these are two soft-tossers.
Since August 1, Cleveland is subpar against lefties. The Guardians have a 96 wRC+ and are slugging .373. New York has a 103 wRC+ against righties, but is also slugging below 400.
Cleveland has a phenomenal bullpen and if Bieber can hand it to Emmanuel Clase, the Guardians will be in full lockdown mode. The issue with runs in this game may be the New York bullpen, but they at least have a few options behind Cortes in the later innings.
Pick: Either Team Win By 1 Run or Less (+150)
- If this ends as a one-run contest, you win $775 in cash ($500 x 1.50). You won’t keep the $500 in free bets. You profited $275 from your original deposit.
- If the game ends with a margin greater than one, you have $0.
