Which NFL Week 12 game will bettors shoot for?
The Lions will be the longest shot on the board because they haven’t won a game this season. There is no additional inducement to betting a longshot here because gamblers get +3000 on any pick.
Nonetheless, Detroit nearly beat the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns in their last two games, both on the road. The Lions usually play well at home on Thanksgiving Day.
Chicago is favored but has been dealing with quarterback issues. There are safer choices, on paper, than this game.
The Cowboys will most likely receive more betting support than the others. They are the biggest favorite of about a touchdown. They play at home and have a 7-3 record in facing the struggling Las Vegas Raiders, who have lost three straight.
Gamblers would pick the Cowboys due to them having weapons galore and this game being bounce-back sentiment after last week’s puzzling 19-9 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
In this promotion, the Cowboys offer the only option of being a heavy favorite and playing at home.
However, gamblers may hesitate because the Cowboys have a number of injuries.
The Bills are favored against the host New Orleans Saints, but just got spanked by the Indianapolis Colts 41-16. The Saints, 5-5, were just smashed by the Philadelphia Eagles, 40-29, and haven’t won since the end of October.
Why FanDuel Sportsbook offer is appealing for new bettors
Consider this monumental flip in the betting odds.
The Cowboys are a whopping -330 on the moneyline to win this game at FanDuel. In this promotion, the bettor can get them for +3000.
Put another way, $5 gets you a $150 profit on the Cowboys. How much would someone have to bet outside of this promotion to make $150 on the Cowboys at these odds? Roughly $500.
Five dollars or $500 produces just about the same amount of profit. That can only happen in a promo.
One more thing.
There is no spread. No over-under. No requirements except this: just win, baby. Building a substantial bankroll on one moneyline hit is an excellent entry into a FanDuel account.
Many gamblers have used similar promotions like this to build a nest egg that lasts an entire season.
