The FanDuel Sportsbook at Meadowlands Racetrack is the only sportsbook in America within walking distance from an NFL stadium.
However, since both of MetLife’s resident teams are not playing there this weekend, FanDuel is offering free admission to patrons on Sunday, Nov. 4.
It’s rare that a stadium with two home teams would be dark during the season. However, the New York Jets are playing the Dolphins in Miami, and the Giants have a bye week.
And did we mention it’s free entry to FanDuel Sportsbook? You heard that right. FREE.
Sit back and watch the game at FanDuel Sportsbook
For fans in New York City and North Jersey, there is no better place to watch a game. Fans can relax in a comfortable setting that will make any bettor feel like a million bucks.
The facility spreads across 5,300 square feet of space and has the capacity to hold almost 500 people at a time. There are also 52 high definition television screens, including a screen at every table and a mass of them covering an entire wall.
There are also 20 stations that can accept any wagers bettors wish to make. However, it’s just a good place to catch a game and eat some food with friends.
But you can use your FanDuel Sportsbook app while at Meadowlands, too.
Don’t despair if you’re tied up on Sunday
Not everyone can make it out to the book on Sunday. Sometimes life gets in the way. Or, perhaps NFL games are just not your thing.
If that’s the case, maybe one of FanDuel’s online promotions is more your speed. For instance, you can take a risk-free shot at some big money with FanDuel’s CFB Parlay Insurance.
Here’s how it works
Place a parlay bet on at least four college football games. The games should all play on Saturday.
Make sure that none of your bets are on teams with better odds than -200. You can’t get this promotion if you pick a bunch of overwhelming favorites.
Like most parlays, you can get a big payday if your selections all end up being correct. However, if you happen to miss one of the legs (and only one), FanDuel will issue you an instant bonus of up to $25.
You can qualify for CFB Parlay Insurance up to four times. So, in theory, you could receive $100 free from FanDuel.
A little insurance for college football
Of course, missing the payout on a parlay bet by one leg four times would be quite frustrating. So, a $100 rebate might seem like a slim consolation to players who receive it.
However, it might help to think of the insurance as a hedge against disaster. It only takes one fluky play to turn a parlay into a loser.
For example, imagine that in one leg of your parlay, you had the Rams beating the spread last weekend against the Packers. If not for Todd Gurley’s lack of ambition, you might’ve cashed in on that wager. Instead, your bet went down the drain.
So, FanDuel’s CFB Parlay Insurance guards against unusual plays, like some running back deciding that he wants to win the game instead of beating the spread. Unfortunately, some athletes are just selfish like that.
