PointsBet’s Best Wednesday Promo Code & Bonuses (Jan. 2): Illinois at Michigan State Odds & Promotion
NCAA Make It Rain Booster
Here’s a fun promo that PointsBet is offering tonight to make your Illinois-Michigan State bet a little more juicy. If you place a $50+ spread bet on Illinois or Michigan State today, you get $3 in bonus for every 3-pointer your team makes. The Spartans are 10-point favorites at the time of writing.
Illinois comes into this game averaging 17 threes attempted per game while shooting 31.8% from 3-point land. Michigan State enters letting 3’s fly, averaging 23 attempts per game and shooting 35% from deep.
With the total set to 147 points, there should be plenty of 3s made, which is why this booster is perfect for tonight’s game. If the team you bet on in this game makes it rain from 3-point land, you effectively turn a portion of your original stake into a free-roll.
Thursday’s Best NBA Promotions
NBA Make It Rain Booster
This promotion is exactly like the Illinois-Michigan State one above, but NBA related. If you place a $50 or more spread bet on Toronto or Miami (-5.5), you get $3 in bonus bets for every 3-pointer your team makes.
The Raptors come into this game averaging 13.4 three-pointers made per game, while the Heat average 12.6.
Both teams love to shoot 3s, which makes this wager worth your time. If the team you bet on catches fire from 3-point land, it is money in the bank.
Who doesn’t like free money?
Jimmy Butler Prop Booster
- Jimmy Butler to get 25+ points, boosted from +175 to +200
Jimmy Butler is having a terrific season, and has his young Miami squad currently sitting in third place in the Eastern Conference. Jimmy Buckets comes into this game averaging 20.8 PPG. He’s averaging 21 PPG over his last 10 games and had a 22-point outing against Toronto earlier this season.
Butler has been known to have a flair for the dramatic, so if you think he goes off tonight against a Raptors team that is a game back in the standings, these are some enticing odds.
Thursday’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).
Thursday features a huge 12-game hockey slate and plenty of opportunities to target underdogs with this promotion.
Today, our NHL expert Michael Leboff likes two underdogs. The Columbus Blue Jackets (+170) and Ottawa Senators (+125).
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.
