There are all different kinds of interesting deals available at the various legal online sportsbooks, but FanDuel Sportsbook Indiana is currently running one of the more creative promotions we’ve seen with its “Spread the Love” campaign this weekend.
For every 250 bettors in the state of Indiana that back the Colts against the spread on Monday night when they play the Saints, FanDuel is boosting the spread by one full point.
The power of numbers. People helping people. It’s a beautiful thing, and it’s also a unique offer for new bettors that varies from the standard deposit bonuses and bet boosts customary of the market.
Of course, FanDuel also offers a $500 risk-free bet to new users that download the app right here.
Currently, the Colts are a 9.5-point underdog, which means FanDuel users in the Hoosier State have the opportunity to create additional point spread value by lifting the line well into the double digits.
How to Spread the Love
It’s easy to take advantage of this deal–one of the more unique offers we’ve seen in the Indiana online sports betting market since it went live in early October.
The promotion is available to all FanDuel users in the state of Indiana that bet through the app. In order for the bet to count, users will need to find the “Spread the Love” promotion in the app and then place their bets. There is no cap on the potential spread, so, theoretically, it could blow well past the 20 or 30-point mark if the campaign picks up enough steam.
In terms of value, it could be pretty substantial. Take a look at FanDuel’s alternative spread prices at some key numbers:
- +14.5 (-195)
- +17.5 (-270)
- +20.5 (-380)
- +24.5 (-700)
- +30.5 (-1800)
- +35.5 (-4000)
As you can see, the people of the Hoosier state have the opportunity to come together and help one another score a cover on Monday night.
The Colts have already shown they are capable of scoring both a win and a cover on the road as a big underdog this season. The Colts knocked off the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium as an 11.5-point underdog back in Week 5.
As for this game, Frank Reich’s squad will try to shake off a tough loss in Tampa Bay last Sunday, while the Saints attempt to bounce back after a gut-wrenching 48-46 defeat against the 49ers.
The Saints are only 5-8 ATS when favored at home by nine or more points with Drew Brees under center, while the Colts are 6-3-2 ATS under Reich as a road underdog.
