How No-Sweat Bets Work

We already did a deep dive on FanDuel’s no-sweat bets if you want more detail, but we'll explain below as well.

Here's an example.

Say you want to deposit $100 and bet the Panthers moneyline on Thursday against the Falcons at +125. These two teams went down to the wire a few weeks ago, with Atlanta winning an epic-but-ugly game in overtime thanks to Carolina's inability to kick field goals and extra points.

  • If the Panthers win, you'll make $125 and keep the $100. You now have $225 in your account, good for a $125 profit. You can withdraw or keep betting that money.
  • If the Panthers lose, you get $100 back in free bets, which we'll explain below.

How Do Free Bets Work?

Free bets are kind of like real bets, but you have to bet them to actually turn it into withdrawable cash. It's like FanDuel is paying for the bet, and you get to keep the winnings.

Let's say the Panthers lose and you want to put it all on the Steelers on Sunday against the Saints. It's one of Brandon Anderson's early favorite bets of the week, and you should also use free bets on plus-money wagers.

  • If the Steelers win, you keep $125 but not the $100 free bet. So you'll now have $125 in your account.
  • If the Steelers lose, you end up with nothing.

Here's part of why Anderson likes Pittsburgh:

Are we really making the Saints road favorites? This team is 3-6 with two wins in the final minutes, and New Orleans could barely even move the ball against the Ravens on Monday night. Now they get a short week against a rested opponent, and they’re road favorites? I don’t see it.

Mike Tomlin is 11-4 SU out of the bye, and you know this is an awesome Rah Rah Tomlin underdog spot. Tomlin is 39-16-1 ATS (71%) as a dog from Week 5 forward, and he’s an absurd 14-2-1 ATS (88%) at home with nine straight covers and seven straight wins outright, including one with Pickett. Tomlin is 13-4 SU as a home dog in those games with a 98% ROI on the moneyline.

You really want to step in front of that train for Andy Dalton and Dennis Allen?

I sure don’t.

I love this spot for Pittsburgh. The Steelers are a different team at home, and the defense is another animal entirely with T.J. Watt. As long as he’s cleared to go, I love the rested, healthier Steelers to cover and win outright against an overvalued Saints team coming off a short week.

So how should you use the free bets? Betting plus-money.

Remember, the higher the line, the more expected value you gather over time. Expected value means the margin between the real odds of something happening and the odds posted by the sportsbook.
