The shock of the Von Miller trade is gone.
The legendary member of the Denver Broncos now plays for the Los Angeles Rams. After the trade to LA last week, Miller was held out against the Tennessee Titans because of his ankle.
Will he make his Rams debut on Monday Night Football against the San Francisco 49ers?
In the stadium in which he earned Super Bowl 50 MVP?
If Miller does play, that may make the FanDuel Colorado Sportsbook new user promo even more enticing.
Keep in mind, you don’t need a promo code for this Week 10 offer.
Bet $5, win $150 (in cash)
When it comes to “no-brainer” promotions, FanDuel continues to pump them out a regular clip.
For the Rams and 49ers promo, new users have 30-1 odds on either team to win. All bettors have to do is place a $5 moneyline wager on either team, if their team wins they win $150 in real money. You read that correctly, real cash. The winnings don’t come in site credit or free bets as is the common practice at other sportsbooks.
As just noted, this promo is for new FanDuel bettors only.
Here’s how it works
To claim the offer, new bettors must register and make a first-time deposit.
After you do, place your $5 moneyline bet on either LA or San Francisco.
Keep in mind if you use this promo, it replaces the risk-free bet of $1,000 that is also available. Bettors who claim this Rams and 49ers promo will not be eligible for any other acquisition-specific offer.
Rare promo to payout in cash
Since FanDuel has done this for a few weeks now, it’s not that rare.
Still, most sportsbooks payout these promos in free bets.
That opens up a few possibilities for what you do if you win.
You can leave some money in your account and try out a few different NFL betting markets on the app. Test out a spread teaser, same game parlay and/or a few game props. Keep in mind, if you do the parlay route, all legs must hit for your bet to win.
The choice is yours, and the fact FanDuel gives bettors that freedom is a nice change.
Rams vs 49ers
Divisional games are always like blowing into the wind — you never know what will happen.
With how poor Matthew Stafford played against the Titans, one would expect him to perform better against the 49ers.
And since the Arizona Cardinals (8-1) continue to win, even without Kyler Murray, the Rams (7-2) need to win their divisional games to keep pace. The winner of the NFC West gets the top seed. The team that finishes second is a wild card team.
San Francisco (3-5), meanwhile, has lost four of its last five games, including a 31-17 loss to the Colt McCoy-led Cardinals last Sunday.
Can Stafford and the Rams get back on track?
What could help the LA defense is the debut of Miller. If he’s able to go, Miller partnering up with Aaron Donald and Leonard Floyd could provide an additional spark to help push the Rams over the top.
