Here's a quick run-through on how this FanDuel promotion will operate.

How Does FanDuel's Maryland Promo Work?

First, sign up at FanDuel and deposit an amount of money. You're then set to bet $5 or more as a qualifying wager for this promotion on any game.

Once the bet settles, you will automatically be credited with $200 in free bets. It won't matter whether your initial wager wins or loses because you get the $200 no matter the outcome.

Choosing Your Bet

Before you decide what you want to bet on, we advise betting on longshots — especially when it comes to using a promotion. You make more profits over time — even if it feels like you're losing more bets.

There are two matches at 2 p.m. on Wednesday to bet on. Let's choose a bet from Mexico-Saudi Arabia according to what Anthony Dabbundo expressed in his match preview:

Through two matches, it’s clear that Saudi Arabia have been the better side than Mexico. You can’t entirely throw out priors in this case, which suggest that Mexico has more talent and is the better side. But Mexico’s injuries, aging squad profile and lack of game-changing attacking talent make them a very vulnerable favorite here.

Mexico haven’t really had to go attack and send numbers forward by taking more defensive risks yet. That changes on Wednesday, and the defense could get more exposed as they push for the win. Saudi Arabia are the better coached and more versatile side here.

This match should be lined closer to a tossup in my view and I’ll take Saudi Arabia +0.5 at +100 or better, while also sprinkling on the moneyline at a big underdog price. Don’t be surprised if Saudi Arabia pull off yet another upset.

How This Bet Will Result

Caesars has Saudi Arabia priced at +400 at the time of this writing (match has begun).

So if Saudi Arabia pulls off a win, we get $20 and our $5 back. Plus, we also get $200 in free bets from the new user bonus.

If Mexico should win or the match results in a draw, we would lose our $5, but still get the $200 in free bets.

You're going to see the $200 in free bets either way, so it's a great way to make a splash into sports betting if you're a Maryland resident.

Betting With FanDuel's Free Bets

Free bet credits cannot be withdrawn as cash. You can only use them to make wagers within the FanDuel platform. You can divide up your free bet credit total over several bets until it is used up, so they don't have to be all used at once.

If the bet wins, you'll get the profits, but the free bets are gone. So think of them more so as credits to wager with.

Also, they will expire if you do not use them within the allotted time, which is usually a full week. They can't be used to bet with other FanDuel promotions either.

So let's say you use all $200 of your free bets and place it on this Thursday World Cup parlay:

Croatia ML+165
Morocco ML+110

If the bet wins, you win $1,334 and the $200 in free bets disappears. But should one of those three legs fall through and it loses, you end up with nothing.
