FanDuel Promo Code: Different Bonuses in Most States vs. Kentucky for NFL Week 1
For those betting inside any other live FanDuel state, you can catch $200 in bonus bets after placing a $5 bet along with the same NFL Sunday Ticket promo. And note there is no real promo code needed to activate this. Just use the modules below.
Once you sign up for FanDuel Sportsbook, the $100 value will be ready to bet once online sports betting goes live on September 28. But the $100 NFL Ticket discount applies right away.
So if you place $10 on the Lions to win at +194, you would get the $29.40 payout plus $100 in bonus bets if they prevail in regulation or overtime. If the Chiefs win, you still get the bonus bets and discount.
We will use an expert bet for the Thursday season opener Lions-Chiefs at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC to explain how you can maximize value with bonuses.
FanDuel Promo Code: Lions-Chiefs
With bonus bets, you won't keep the stake, but you can profit with them if your bet succeeds. There's a plus-betting strategy when using bonus bets because of the gap between the true odds of something happening and the sportsbook’s posted odds. We broke down the theory behind betting with promotions more in-depth here.
The Chiefs are 5.5-point favorites heading into kickoff with a total set at a sky-high 52.5. Let's look at how Anthony Dabbundo is looking at the expected high-scoring affair between Detroit and Kansas City Week 1:
The defending Super Bowl champion never seems to lose in this spot, and Andy Reid always has some new wrinkles dialed up for Week 1. Reid is 7-3 ATS and 9-1 straight-up (SU) in season openers, per Evan Abrams. But Patrick Mahomes' struggles to get margin and cover big spreads with the Chiefs are well-documented now in the betting space. The Chiefs are 15-28 ATS when laying 3.5 or more points OVER the last three seasons.
The defense will be without its most important player: Chris Jones. He was an All-Pro at generating pressure, and the Chiefs don't have much depth behind him. Jared Goff will be comfortable in the pocket as a result, and the Lions offense should be able to cook. Detroit returns its entire offensive personnel, including offensive coordinator Ben Johnson. The group was fifth in offensive DVOA last year and made changes to improve its porous secondary and run defense.
The Chiefs offense appears likely to be without Travis Kelce after he hyperextended his knee on Tuesday. This leaves the Chiefs dangerously shorthanded from an offensive explosiveness perspective. You could argue he’s the most valuable non-QB in the entire NFL.
In the theme of betting plus, let's tack on top-targeted Detroit wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown to tally a touchdown for an SGP priced at +228. This would return $228 in profit with $100 placed in bonus bets.
The Pick: Over 52.5 + St. Brown ATD SGP
