As a sports bettor, it is incredibly frustrating when promotions are only available for new users. What about me? Am I chopped liver? Well, FOXBet is here to help us with some interesting sports betting promotions this week.
I am going to break down some of the more intriguing promotional bets and what I am targeting this weekend. We have some big games in Michigan, most importantly Michigan vs. Michigan State in East Lansing. Both teams are ranked in the top 10 this year.
All of these promotions are available at Fox Bet Michigan, where new users can get a risk-free bet of up to $500.
No. 6 Michigan At No. 8 Michigan State
Both Teams to Throw an Interception (+400) — Max bet $10
This is an interesting selection. Both quarterbacks are pretty careful with the ball. Michigan’s Cade McNamara doesn’t have to throw often. The intensity is going to be significantly higher in this game. Michigan State’s Payton Thorne is more of a gunslinger and likes to push it down the field. An interception is possible for Thorne. McNamara is the real question here.
Both Teams to Score in Every Quarter (+700) — Max bet $25
I am not often a huge fan of these bets especially in rivalry games where the schemes are well known by the coaches. Obviously, at +700, you can do worse, but this is projecting a shootout which is hard for me to really buy into.
Detroit Lions vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Jalen Hurts or D’Andre Swift to score the first TD (+300) — Max bet $25
This is likely my favorite bet on the promotional card. Hurts and Swift are the two best offensive players on the field. Hurts is a dual-threat QB, and he’s a master of it. He isn’t the best at throwing the football so running is his most likely outcome. I’ll take Swift if the Lions score first. Getting +300 on either is excellent value.
No. 20 Penn St. vs. No. 6 Ohio St.
First score to be a Penn State TD (+300) — Max bet $25
It’s tough to imagine Penn State getting off to a hot start. The Nittany Lions’ offense isn’t a top-tier offense, and Ohio State QB CJ Stroud has been putting serious points on the board. I would like to back Ohio State in this game, especially as a 17-point favorite. However, if Penn State gets the ball first, having a +300 ticket on Penn State scoring a TD is solid. My worry is that Penn State might not get the ball first. Plus, you lose on any field goal.
First Score to be an Ohio State TD (+100) — Max bet $25
Same as with the Penn State TD prop, my problem is that a field goal blows this bet for you. My preference would be bet to bet Ohio State at +100 rather than Penn State at +300.
NFL Sunday Early Games
Cooper Kupp, Stefon Diggs & Jonathan Taylor all to score TDs (+600) — Max bet $10
These guys are all major pieces of their teams’ offenses. Buffalo WR Stefon Diggs is my only real worry to stop you from cashing this ticket as Rams WR Cooper Kupp and Colts RB Jonathan Taylor are usually cruising into the end zone. Still, at +600, you can do no wrong here.
NFL Sunday Late Games
Alvin Kamara & Mike Evans both to score TDs (+300) — Max bet $25
Tampa Bay WR Mike Evans had three TDs last week, and Kamara dominated for the Saints on Monday Night Football with a touchdown of his own. I am a little hesitant to jump on this because Kamara will have a very difficult time running for any touchdowns against the stout-rushing defense of the Buccaneers. Still, this is one of the better values on the board thanks to his receiving prowess. It is also worth noting that Saints CB Marshon Lattimore has done well while covering Evans.
