The reason for this is the way FOX Bet offers daily odds boosts from the likes of Colin Cowherd, Charissa Thompson, Cousin Sal, and others. Unlike some other sportsbooks, where promotional odds boosts occasionally feel like they don’t provide you much value or try to get you on the sucker side of a bet, these offers ostensibly seem to come from the personalities themselves. In the case of Cowherd, he makes his picks on the air and you can bet on them in the app.
One of their best ones is the Cousin Sal “Custom Sal Money Back Special” each Thursday. What is being offered for Thursday Night Football tonight is the best sports betting odds boost we’ve seen at a legal sportsbook:

You can get at +600 odds the Giants to score under 14.5 points and a Patriots defensive touchdown. Given the fact that it will be bad weather, with a rookie quarterback going up against the team that hasn’t allowed a passing touchdown, has intercepted the ball 11 times, and is a 16 point favorite, this seems like a pretty enticing offer.
What makes it so good is that your $25 is completely risk-free (it will be refunded if it doesn’t hit), and the +600 multiplier actually has some value.
Often, these odds boosts, which come with max bets, really kind of limit your upside and tend to be in the +200- +300 range, meaning that you might be able to turn $25 into $50 or $75, at best. And loss insurance is usually reserved to narrow parameters or smaller paybacks. But FOX Bet is different.
In this case, you’re getting what feels like a pretty strong custom bet that could win you $150, with no risk. There is literally no reason not to take this bet, and the payoff is good enough that it is worth your time to make the effort.
The boost is available to all players.
If you haven’t signed up for FOX Bet, you’ll be given $20 free instantly in your account when you sign up here , your first deposit will be matched up to $100, and then you can get in on any of these odds boosts.
There is a little bit of fine print. Your signup bonus can’t be used on an odds boost. And if the bet doesn’t hit and you’re refunded the $25, you will have to play-through with that money before you can withdraw it. Sportsbooks aren’t stupid. But in terms of creating real value, this is the best single odds boost we’ve seen at a legal sportsbook so far. Worth getting in on this one.
