The NFL game of the week has a promo to match.
In fact, the New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills could turn into the game of the year, at least for now.
Needless to say, fans don’t need an excuse to tune into the Monday Night Football game in Orchard Park.
But the FanDuel Colorado online sportsbook has made it even more enticing for bettors new to the app.
Bet $5, win $150 (in cash money)
Once again, FanDuel pumps out this “no-brainer” promo.
For the Patriots and Bills 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 money. 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 New England or Buffalo.
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 Bills and Patriots promo will not be eligible for any other acquisition-specific offer.
Rare promo to payout in cash
Since FanDuel has made this a weekly new-bettor promo, it’s not that rare.
Still, most sportsbooks pay these bonuses out 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 bets on the FanDuel app. Perhaps try a spread teaser, same game parlay or a few game props.
Or you can cash out.
The choice is yours, and the fact FanDuel gives you that freedom is a nice change.
Patriots vs Bills
As noted earlier, this has the potential to be a helluva football game.
At stake is the lead in the AFC East and, at least, a top-four playoff spot. Heading into this game, the Patriots are 8-4 and have won six in a row. The recipe for Bill Belichick and New England looks a lot like the early 2000s when the Super Bowl run started — great running offense and great defense. That allows rookie quarterback Mac Jones to choose his spots and take advantage of what the defense gives him.
As for the Bills, who are 7-4, they got completely trucked by the Indianapolis Colts two weeks ago. Josh Allen and Buffalo definitely looked better on Thanksgiving night against the New Orleans Saints, but the blueprint to beat this team is out there. It’s how the Colts and Tennessee Titans beat them. And it’s what the Patriots do well.
If New England runs the ball as it has on this winning streak, and pressures, hits and sacks Allen, the Bills are in for another long game.
If Buffalo takes away the Patriots running game and has the offense play the way it did against the Saints, the Bills have a great shot to win.
Fans don’t need an excuse to flip on ESPN for Monday Night Football this week. If you’re a new bettor to FanDuel, this bet $5, win $150 in real money promo certainly sweetens the pot.
