College Football Promotions As Surprising As Indiana University’s 3-0 Record

Posted on November 13, 2020 - Last Updated on March 20, 2024

It’s been a great year so far for Indiana University football fans.

The Hoosiers narrowly managed to take down Penn State in an overtime thriller to start the season. The ending of that game was about as close as it could have been.

IU followed that up with wins against Rutgers and Michigan.

The team’s 3-0 record has them ranked No. 10 in the AP Top 25 Poll. That’s IU’s first appearance in the top 10 since 1969.

Game four for the team will decide if it’ll be moving up or sliding back in the rankings.

IU vs. Michigan State Odds

With a trio of wins under its belt, IU will travel to Michigan State for Saturday’s bout against the Spartans.

Despite Michigan State being an unranked team, IU is only favored by a touchdown right now.

We’ve got the live odds for the game below, so you can check back in periodically to see how the lines are changing. Just a heads up, SugarHouse is the New Jersey equivalent of BetRivers.

FanDuel gets in on college football betting promos

Since this isn’t exactly a battle of the heavyweights, there aren’t any promotions out there specific to the IU-Michigan State game.

However, there are some general college football deals out there that IU fans can take advantage of.

One of those is FanDuel sportsbook’sCollege Football Parlay Insurance.”

The insurance basically acts as a refund if your bet barely misses.

You’ll have to opt-in to the deal first in order to qualify. You can find it under the “promotions” section of FanDuel’s website or app.

Once you’ve opted in, you’ll have to place a parlay with at least five legs on college football. All of the parlay’s legs have to be from one of Saturday’s games, and the odds have to stack up to at least -200.

After you’ve placed your bet, FanDuel will refund you if you manage to hit all of your parlay legs except for one. Those refunds are good for up to $25.

That’s a great way to make a close loss feel like it never even happened.

William Hill Double 20 promotion

Indiana’s newest online betting app is also getting in on the college football action.

William Hill has its own college football betting promotion out there that you can use for IU football.

The “Double 20” deal basically acts as a 20% boost, whether you win or lose.

Much like FanDuel’s promotion, this one requires a multi-leg parlay.

You’ll have to lock in a parlay with at least four legs before game time. Your bet will also have to be at least $10 to qualify for the deal.

If your bet hits, you’ll win a bonus bet equal to 20% of your net winnings. If your bet misses, your bonus bet will equal 20% of your net losses.

So for example, if your parlay nets you $100 in winnings, then William Hill will credit you with a $20 bonus bet.

The promotion is certainly a unique one in Indiana. There isn’t anything else out there that’s quite like it.

Since you win some extra money regardless of whether you win or lose, this could be a great deal for the parlay lovers out there.
