PointsBet’s Best Promo Code & Bonuses (Friday, Dec. 27): College Football Playoff Promotions
First TD Early Payout: Clemson vs. Ohio State
This figures to be the closer of Saturday’s two College Football Playoff Semifinal games (LSU is nearly a two-TD favorite vs. Oklahoma in the other game).
Here’s how this promotion works: If you bet the Clemson or Ohio State moneyline (doesn’t matter which), and the team you bet on scores the first TD, your bet gets paid out as if it won (first $50 staked). In a game that figures to be back and forth, that could be extremely valuable.
If you’re looking for a tiebreaker in your decision-making process, our college football expert Collin Wilson is on the Clemson moneyline on Saturday night.
Boosted Odds on College Football Playoff Props
Travis Etienne Over 95.5 Rushing Yards (Boosted from +100 to +125)
PointsBet has boosted odds for 12 different CFP player props at the time of writing. They’ve moved the juice on each of them a full 25 cents, so be sure to check all of those out here.
This is the most intriguing of the bunch, because the pricing is so much better when compared to other books. There are other 95.5-yard over/unders for Etienne out there, but the Over is juiced at prices like -110 and -105. Getting +125 on this number is an absolute steal for a prop that Wilson likes even at un-boosted odds.
Saturday’s Best College Basketball Promotion
$3 for Every 3-Pointer Made: Kentucky vs. Louisville
This is one of those zero-downside promotions PointsBet rolls out a few times per week. If you place a $50+ spread bet on either Kentucky or Louisville (3:45 p.m. ET), you’ll get $3 for every 3-pointer your team makes in the game. In addition to these bonuses, your regular bet will also get paid out if it wins.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Kentucky, which a few of our college basketball experts like to prevail as 1-point underdogs on Saturday, is one of the worst 3-point shooting teams in the country, making only 4.5 per game. Louisville is much better at eight per game.
Regardless of which team you like to win, if you’re going to bet this game anyway, you’d be silly not to do it at PointsBet.
Saturday’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).
Tonight, our NHL expert Michael Leboff likes, gulp, the Detroit Red Wings (+250) against the Florida Panthers. Leboff likes to target underdogs, and this promotion is great for that, because these teams are often good enough to stay competitive but have a tendency to sometimes blow big leads.
