Well, well, well. Look what we have here. FanDuel Sportsbook, which came out of the gate in online sports betting in New Jersey with a rather lukewarm promo, has quickly realized that they will need to be more aggressive going up against betting stalwarts like DraftKings, SugarHouse and BetStars. Last week they ran a guaranteed moneyline bet on the Eagles, Giants and Jets, and now they’re offering up to $100 to back the good ‘ol USA in the Ryder Cup.
The details: Anyone who places a bet on the USA to win the Ryder Cup before 12 p.m. Saturday will have their bet refunded up to $100 if the USA is leading after Saturday and goes on to lose on Sunday. Basically, if they choke.
There is also fine print, which says you must use any winnings from the wager to place another bet of equal value before withdrawing the funds. This is called a “play-through” requirement and it is a rather standard term on these sorts of promotions.
FanDuel Sportsbook is also offering a similar promo for Week 4 NFL games, which will refund any pre-game moneyline bets up to $50 if a team winning at halftime goes on to lose the game.
Both of these offers are good with FanDuel’s standard $100 deposit bonus.
