PointsBet’s Best Promo Code & Bonuses (Sunday, Jan. 5): NFL Wild Card Promotions
First Touchdown Early Payout
Vikings-Saints has the highest over/under of any wild card game (50 points), so we very well could see a back-and-forth affair between these two teams. That very well could give the Vikings moneyline value with this promotion.
Here is the lowdown: If you bet either side of Vikings-Saints on the moneyline pregame and your team goes on to score the first touchdown of the game, you’ll be paid out as if your bet won (first $50 staked).
Fade Rovell: Carson Wentz Over 265.5 Passing Yards
Boosted from -115 to +110
Every week, PointsBet runs a promotion with our very own Darren Rovell, where you get boosted odds to bet the other side of Rovell’s favorite prop.
Darren likes Under 265.5 passing yards from Wentz, which means you get +110 odds (instead of the usual -115) on the Over. Those are, quite literally, the best odds in America on this particular prop. (Multiple other books are at 267.5 and -120 odds.)
We’re not quite sure what Rovell is thinking with his pick: Wentz went Over this number in each of his final five games as the Eagles relied on his arm more. It also coincided with a 4-1 record over that same period, so it’s hard to see Philly shifting its philosophy now that they’re playing the Seahawks’ 27th-ranked pass defense in terms of yards allowed.
Saturday’s Best NFL Boosters
There are a variety of NFL prop boosters offered today by PointsBet, but here’s an intriguing one:
Marshawn Lynch to Score a Touchdown
Boosted from +140 odds to +160
Three of Lynch’s 12 carries in his season-debut with the Seahawks last week came from inside the 15-yard line. He scored a 1-yard touchdown with relative ease, and it was clear Seattle wanted to use BeastMode in that capacity. It’s hard to see that changing today against the Eagles in a win-or-go-home matchup.
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).
We have a six-game NHL slate today, and targeting the Detroit Red Wings (+175) against a volatile team like the Chicago Blackhawks makes sense for this promotion. Chicago is one of the worst defensive teams in the NHL, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Detroit snag an early two-goal lead.
