Indiana Sportsbooks Give Users A Chance At “Free Money” With NFL Week 2 Promotions

Posted on September 17, 2020 - Last Updated on March 20, 2024

The NFL is back and Week 1 was wildly popular for sports betting, so Indiana sportsbooks aren’t slowing down with NFL Week 2 promotions.

At BetRivers sportsbook, the first Colts game alone accounted for 12% of all wagers last weekend.

A big part of that betting popularity comes from the different promotions that sportsbooks pump out.

Since football is such a popular sport for gambling, those deals help sportsbooks stand out from the crowd.

With plenty of Indiana gamblers up for grabs, Indiana’s online betting apps are pumping out a new round of promos for Week 2.

DraftKings 100-1 on any team

Indiana’s most popular sportsbook is bringing back one of its best promotions for NFL Week 2.

DraftKings is giving gamblers 100-1 odds on any team that’s playing this Sunday or Monday.

This promo is only for new users, so DraftKings regulars will have to sit this one out.

To use the deal, you’ll have to sign up for DraftKings first.

After you sign up and make your first deposit of $5 or more, then you’re almost there.

Just head over to the “Rewards” section on DraftKings and opt-in to the promo.

Since 100-1 odds is an insane value, there’s a $1 max bet for the promotion. Even with the max bet, it’s still a great chance to turn $1 into $100 without much risk.

PointsBet Colts Booster

PointsBet has been gunning for Hoosier customers since it launched in Indiana this spring.

The sportsbook’s Colts spread boosters have been a big part of its approach.

Last week, PointsBet ran a booster for Indy’s first game. The Colts started as -7 favorites, but ended up at +60 by the time the game started.

That line was so ridiculous that the sportsbook decided to pay everyone before the game even ended.

Typically, the crowd has to boost the spread higher. The more people that use the promo, the better the value becomes for everyone involved.

PointsBet is cutting out the wait for its Week 2 booster.

Right now, you can take the Colts spread at +84 for their game against the Vikings this Sunday. That line is in celebration of the team’s move from Baltimore to Indianapolis in 1984.

There’s a max bet of $25 for the promotion, but it’s essentially a guaranteed win if you take the bet.

The promo will be running until the game starts on Sunday, so head over to PointsBet to place your bet.

Weekly $5 from theScore Bet

Indiana’s newcomer is already running an NFL promotion.

theScore Bet opened for business in the Hoosier State on Sept. 17.

Since it opened just one week after the start of the NFL season, the sportsbook is already gunning for Hoosier gamblers.

“Weekly $5” works exactly how it sounds. After you place a bet worth $50 or more on the eventual Super Bowl winner, theScore Bet will give you a free $5 bet every week for the rest of the NFL season.

If you’re already planning on placing a futures bet on the Super Bowl, theScore Bet might be the place to do it.

With 16 weeks left in the NFL season, a free $80 worth of bets could help you build up your account’s wallet over the course of the football calendar.

FanDuel Thursday Night Football

It would be a strange football week without any promotions from FanDuel.

Thankfully, the sportsbook is offering its “Gridiron Bonus” for Week 2 gamblers.

The promo is specifically for Thursday’s Bengals-Browns game.

You’ll have to place a pre-game wager of $20 or more on a parlay with at least three legs to qualify.

Once you do, FanDuel will give you a bonus $10 site credit. You’ll get the extra $10 regardless of whether or not your parlay hits, so this is a good value if you were already planning on doing some Thursday Night Football gambling.

BetMGM live NFL betting

MGM’s sports betting app has a new deal on the board that’s good for the entire NFL season.

BetMGM wants to be the home for live NFL betting.

First, you’ll have to opt-in to the promo at the sportsbook’s “promotions” section.

Then you’ll have to place a live bet worth $50 or more for the promo. Once you do, BetMGM will give you a free live bet of $20 to use on any game.

You can use the promo once per day for the entire NFL season, so if you like live betting, this is the deal for you.

BetRivers NFL Profit Boost

BetRivers also has a new promotion out there for the NFL season.

Similar to BetMGM’s deal, this one is available throughout the entire NFL calendar.

However, instead of once per day, BetRivers’ promo can only be used once per week.

The sportsbook is offering a 50% profit boost on any NFL wager.

With dozens of NFL betting options out there every week, there’s plenty of bets to pick from.

Indiana’s sportsbooks will keep rolling out new promotions as the season goes on. With tons of NFL action left in the year, there’s never been a better time for some NFL wagers in the state.
