You Can ‘Beat The Spread’ In NFL Week 5 With Indiana Sportsbook Promotions

Posted on October 7, 2020 - Last Updated on March 20, 2024

A new batch of NFL betting promotions is here for Week 5.

Indiana’s online sportsbooks pump out a new round of NFL deals every week.

Football is the most popular sport for gambling in the US, so there are a ton of opportunities to get in on the action.

FanDuel’s bonus parlay

One of Indiana’s most popular sportsbooks has a new promotion out for Week 5.

FanDuel’s new bonus parlay promotion gives bettors a fun chance to win some money.

First things first; you’ll need to sign up for FanDuel if you don’t already have an account.

Next up, you’ll have to place a same-game parlay on any Week 5 NFL game to qualify.

That parlay needs to have at least three legs to take advantage of the deal. The odds also have to stack up to at least +200.

Once you’ve placed your bet, just sit back and enjoy the game.

If your parlay hits, then congrats, you’ve won yourself some money. Even if your bet doesn’t come through, FanDuel will refund you up to $10.

That refund will come in the form of site credit.

BetMGM live NFL betting

Bet while you watch your favorite NFL team.

Live betting is a big part of the NFL fun for sports gamblers, and BetMGM is hoping to carve out a share of those bets.

The sportsbook has been pushing live betting all NFL season, and that’s still the case heading into Week 5.

Right now, BetMGM is handing out free $20 live bets to its users.

Everyone who places a live bet worth $50 or more is eligible for the free $20.

You can use this promotion once per day throughout the NFL season, which makes this a great deal for gamblers who are frequently live betting on games.

Just opt in to the deal under the “promotions” section on BetMGM’s website or app to get started.

PointsBet’s Make It Rain

PointsBet Sportsbook’sMake It Rain” promotion is back for Week 5.

The promo runs every week, but only on two NFL games each go-around.

This time, Make It Rain is covering Thursday’s Bears-Buccaneers game and Sunday’s Vikings-Seahawks game.

So how does the promotion work? It changes slightly every week.

In a nutshell, PointsBet is giving out free $6 bets for passing yard gamblers this week.

If you place a bet worth $25 or more on the over/under for a quarterback’s passing yards, PointsBet will give you a $6 bet for every touchdown that quarterback throws.

For example, the total for Nick Foles‘ passing yards this week is set at 249.5.

Now let’s say that Foles throws for four touchdowns. Regardless of whether you took the over or the under on his passing yards, Make It Rain would hand you an extra $24.

Unibet Beat The Spread Bonus

Unibet is hopping in on the Week 5 fun with its “Beat The Spread Bonus.”

The promotion is as simple as it sounds.

Just bet the spread on this weekend’s Vikings-Seahawks game, and Unibet will give you $1 for every point your team covers the spread by.

So for example, if you take the Seahawks at -7 and the team ends up winning by 17, then you would take home an extra $10.

You’ll have to place a bet worth $50 or more on either team’s spread before the game starts to qualify.

With so many sportsbooks to pick from in Indiana, there are plenty of NFL options out there every week.

More NFL betting promotions could trickle in as we get closer to this week’s action, so check in with your favorite sportsbook for the full list of betting deals.
