NFL Week 1 Betting Promos That Are Almost Too Good To Be True

Posted on September 8, 2021 - Last Updated on March 20, 2024

Sportsbooks are pumping out all sorts of new deals for the start of the NFL season.

Everything gets underway this Thursday when the Dallas Cowboys face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

There are so many promos, we had to break it up into two posts. If you missed round one, you can check it out here.

With all of the fresh deals out there right now, there’s something for everyone.

PointsBet Tom Brady Booster

PointsBet is offering gamblers a chance to double their money on the first game of the season.

The “Brady Booster” is basically a free win for gamblers that like NFL betting.

If you take the deal, then you’ll be betting on Tom Brady to throw one yard against the Cowboys. That’s it! One single passing yard and you’ll win your bet.

There’s a max $10 wager for this promotion, but that’s still an easy way to turn $10 into $20.

It would obviously be a shock if Brady couldn’t rack up one yard throughout the game, so this is as close to a sure thing as you’ll find in gambling.

All you have to do to use the deal is sign up for PointsBet Indiana. Once you do, look for the deal under the “Promos” section of PointsBet’s website or app.

Barstool Sportsbook NFL promotions

This will be Barstool Sportsbook‘s first NFL season since it launched in Indiana earlier this year.

To celebrate the return of football, Barstool has a pair of new sportsbook deals out there for Hoosiers.

Chicago Bears Multiplier at Barstool Sportsbook

The Chicago Bears are one of the more popular NFL teams throughout the Hoosier State.

Barstool is hoping to attract the Chicago faithful with its latest sportsbook promotion.

The Multiplier” is basically an odds boost for the Bears to beat the +7.5 spread during their first game against the LA Rams.

The payout odds for that bet were originally sitting at +100, but they didn’t stay there for long.

Barstool boosted the odds by an additional +100 for every 1,000 gamblers that used this promotion. The payout odds now sit at +1,000 for this deal.

There’s a $5 max bet for the promotion, but if the Bears beat the spread, then you’ll end up walking away with $50 in winnings.

You may have seen crowd boosters like this before from other sportsbooks. The more people that bet, the better that the deal gets for everyone.

This isn’t a guaranteed win like many of those other deals, but it’s still an incredible value for gamblers that doesn’t involve much financial risk. If you like betting on the Chicago Bears, then this is the deal for you.

Barstool Sportsbook Championship Future

Feeling confident about this year’s Super Bowl winner? Then Barstool has you covered with its second new promotion.

The company is handing out extra cash for Hoosiers that place a futures bet on this season’s eventual champion.

If you bet at least $50 on a team to win the Super Bowl, then Barstool will give you an extra $25 if the over on your team’s regular season win total also hits.

You’ll win that extra cash regardless of whether or not your team wins the Super Bowl.

For example, if you used this deal to wager on the Indianapolis Colts, then you’d be rooting for the team to rack up over 8.5 wins this season. Even if the Colts don’t end up as champions, you’d still win $25 as long as that over hits.

Here’s a glance at the current Super Bowl odds:


If you were already planning to bet on a Super Bowl winner this year, this is a solid deal to take a look at. It gives gamblers a chance to win some extra money without having to put in any extra work.

FanDuel 40/1 NFL odds

FanDuel has its own deal out there for the start of the NFL season.

The promotion is for new users only, so you’ll have to sit this one out if you already have a FanDuel account.

The deal is offering insane +4,000 odds on any NFL Week 1 game. In other words, a $5 moneyline bet would win you $200.

That’s the kind of value that you can only find on a new user promotion like this.

Just create a FanDuel account to get in on the fun. After everything is set up, deposit at least $10 into your account.

Your first bet after your deposit will have the 40/1 odds, but make sure to find the “NFL Week 1 Enhanced Odds” section on FanDuel. Click on whichever game you’d like to bet on, and double check that the odds say +4,000 before you place your bet.

There’s a $5 max bet for this promotion, so don’t plan on retiring if your wager hits.

This is the type of deal that’s fantastic for starting off your bankroll. If you’re new to online sports betting with FanDuel, then you can use your $200 to help get you started off on the right foot.

BetMGM free NFL Week 1 bets

The best things in life are free, and BetMGM is reinforcing that with its latest NFL deal.

The sportsbook is giving out two free $10 bets to every gambler during NFL Week 1.

It’s as simple as that, there’s no catch.

Just sign in today or tomorrow to claim your first bonus bet, and then sometime between Friday and Sunday to claim your second. You can use your bonus bets on any Week 1 game that you want.

Sign up for BetMGM here if a free $20 sounds like a good time.

Frankly, there are too many NFL deals out there to list them all. Indiana’s legal betting apps have all sorts of options, so shop around a little to find the best deal for you.
