FanDuel Sportsbook Ohio Promo Code Nets $200 for Wednesday NBA Action

FanDuel Sportsbook Ohio Promo Code Nets $200 for Wednesday NBA Action article feature image

Donovan Mitchell's 71-point night and legalized sports betting freshly live in Ohio are the catalysts for new bettors to jump on FanDuel Sportsbook's$200 promo code.

No code is required to punch in, just use this link. All that needs to be done is signing up and betting $5 or more — and of course, being inside the state of Ohio. The $200 in bet credits is guaranteed regardless whether you win or lose.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are surging up the Eastern Conference ranks as they've collected a 7-3 record in their last ten contests. They welcome the once-dominant Phoenix Suns — a club that's now dropped six of their last seven and has dipped out of the playoff brink.

Let's look at how we can use this game to launch this FanDuel promotion and what we can expect.

Acquiring the $200 

The $200 in bet credits will come no matter the bet's outcome, so it's a good opportunity to take advantage of riding a more lucrative, less likely bet. We call these plus money. Let's choose one by assessing what the storylines for the Cavs-Suns 7 p.m. tipoff:

Pheonix Suns (+172) vs. Cleveland Cavaliers (-210) at FanDuel

Without Devin Booker, the Suns are a shell of their former offensive power house. The market is marking the Cavs as 5.5-point favorites as Donovan Mitchell cracked the top ten all time points in a single game list on Monday when he dropped 71 against the Bulls. Meanwhile, Phoenix was trampled over by the Knicks by a score of 102-83 in New York.

Mitchell's contributions to the Cavaliers 24-14, fourth place in the East record has been polarizing. The first-year Cav and 26-year-old veteran has amassed 29.3 PPG, which ranks seventh in the league. For what it's worth against Wednesday's depleted Suns lineup, Mitchell has averaged 24.7 PPG, 4.4 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 14 games against the Suns.

Chris Baker detailed why the Cavs offense should find success in his game preview:

Monitor the injury report here, but if both Garland and Mitchell are healthy expect this Cavs offense to roll through this Suns defense. The Suns defense ranks 28th in defensive rebound rate and the Cavs offense ranks 11th in half court offensive rebound rate. Additionally, I just don’t have much faith in the point of attack defense of the suns given the current state of Chris Paul.

With Chris Paul and Cameron Payne getting the bulk of point guard minutes, I don’t expect the Suns to be able to hold up against pick and rolls and isolation possessions against a confident Donovan Mitchell coming off a 71-point explosion on Monday night. Behind the Suns point of attack defense lies Center Deandre Ayton who seems to be fundamentally misvalued by NBA world.

Pick a Bet for this Promo

Let's ride the Donovan Mitchell train for the fun of it. We'll take the FanDuel player prop of Mitchell to net 35+ points against the Suns — priced at +170.

We'll throw $10 down. If he eclipses this mark, we make $17 with a payout of $27. Plus, we get $200 in bet credits. If the Suns hold him under 35, we'll lose our $10 bet, but still see the $200 in bet credits.

Waging Bet Credits 

These are only to be used for betting. We can only cash out whatever profits we win with them. Imagine your friend spots you for a bet and you keep the winnings. FanDuel is that friend in this scenario.

So let's take our $200 in bet credits and place it all (for the sake of the example; you don't have to bet it all at once) on the Pistons to upset the Warriors at 10 p.m. — priced at +210.

It will play accordingly:

  • Pistons win: We make $420 and can do whatever we want with it.
  • Pistons lose: We lose all $200 in bet credits and have nothing.

Quick Tip: Don't Over Bet

You should never bet just because. If you're betting a dozen games in one night, it's too much. This can destroy your bank roll in a flash. You can mitigate risks by managing how much you bet. Look out for games you can bet with conviction only and stay disciplined. Remember, you can't lose a bet you never made.
