PointsBet’s Best Friday Promo Code & Bonuses (Jan. 3): Wisconsin-Ohio State Odds & Promotion
NCAA Make It Rain Booster
Here’s a fun promo that PointsBet is offering tonight to help turn your Wisconsin-Ohio State bet into a partial free-roll. If you place a $50+ spread bet on Wisconsin or Ohio State today, you get $3 in bonus for every 3-pointer your team makes. The Buckeyes are 7-point favorites at the time of writing.
Wisconsin into this game shooting 34.1% from 3-point land, including 8.3 made per game. Ohio State enters averaging nine 3-point attempts per game and shooting 40% from deep.
Friday’s Best NBA Promotions
NBA Make It Rain Booster
This promotion is exactly like the Wisconsin-Ohio State one above, but NBA related. If you place a $100 or more spread bet on Sixers or Rockets (-5), you get $3 in bonus bets for every 3-pointer your team makes.
You know James Harden and the Rockets like to let it fly from 3-point land. When I say let it fly, I’m not kidding. The Rockets come into this game averaging 44 three-pointers attempted a game, while making 15.7 per. So, some quick back-of-napkin math: If the Rockets match their season average, that’d mean $48 worth of bonus bets for you. So the risk on your $100 Houston bet would effectively be cut in half.
(For whatever it’s worth, a few of our NBA experts have already bet the Rockets spread tonight.)
NBA Prop Boosters
LeBron James and Anthony Davis to Score 50+ Combined Points
Boosted from -200 to -141
There are a plethora of NBA prop boosters offered today by PointsBet, but this is my favorite one.
Let’s start with this: Our NBA models have the Lakers’ duo projected to score 54.6 points today, so getting Over 49.5 at -141 odds is good value.
LeBron put up 31 in his last outing, while AD went for 26. The game was a blowout, otherwise those numbers would’ve been even higher. With tonight’s over/under set to 225 points, there should be plenty of points scored by the Lakers’ dynamic duo.
Here are some of the other NBA boosters offered today:
- Brandon Ingram to Score 25+ Points, boosted from -105 to +120
- James Harden to Score 30+ Points, boosted from -330 to -200
- Ben Simmons to Score 15+ Points, boosted from -130 to +100
Friday’s Best NHL Promotion
One of PointsBet’s best daily promotions is their NHL early payout, which stipulates that if your NHL bet ever gets a two-goal lead in a game, you win even if it ends up actually losing (promotion good for up to $100).
Small NHL slate today, but our NHL expert Michael Leboff will be betting the biggest underdog on the board: Detroit Red Wings (+280) at Dallas Stars.
In general, Leboff likes to target underdogs, and this promotion is great for that, because these teams are often good enough to start off hot but have a tendency to sometimes blow big leads.
