What sites have you signed up for and who has the best promotions and what are the fine prints of each. I know one friend said he planned on signing up for like 14 different places and places opposite bets to get some free money.

I'll sign up for Barstool and Betjack as they have physical locations and my account can be online and in person. Barstool is here in Columbus and Betjack up in Cleveland.

Promotions are all over the place, but the fine print is if you win, it stays in its own bucket or is hard to withdraw for cash. It's why I usually like to bet in person. 

I'll probably keep my offshore account as a nice option if I find value in a line. 

Can't believe the state is not moving up the date a day to capture the Ohio State playoff handle. Waste of an opportunity. 

Going to be nuts to see kiosks in bars and stores in a few months though. March is going to be fun.

I did mgm, dk, and fd. They gave 200$ each in bets. Yes the fine print is 8 25$ free bets but at the end of the day it’s free bets

I just do BetOnline.  Have cashed a few times.  They will send Western Union money orders, among others, and also crypto.

Racking up promos is interesting, but as mentioned a lot of times it's restricted as to when you can withdraw (usually it's a function of risk - can't take a $200 promo and just wash it on a 95% video poker game...in that scenario probably have to bet $4k+ before you can cash).

FanDuel is my favorite and easiest app to navigate. DraftKings typically has the best odds when it comes to futures, golf tournaments, etc. Those are the only 2 worth it imo.

I have DraftKings. Going to blow through (and probably lose) the eight free bets then probably never look at it again.

FanDuel had a promo where you could bet up $100 on at least 1 or more point being scored last night in Bills/Bengals and it was even odds. Easiest $100 I ever made. Quickly withdrew that to my bank account too lol. That was before the Hamlin injury. It'll be interesting to see how sites handle the bets for that game.

All losses will be refunded. All wins will be awarded.

Do you guys have any good follows or "expert" advice you like to seek out on social media? 

I know it's typically a total crap shoot. I find most value in player props usually. I may place a bet or two a week, nothing crazy.

What sport? I love betting golf because its a 4-5 day event each week. And you can sprinkle small amounts on 4-5 guys. 1 win a month would put you ahead for the year, even if you are hitting the favorite. 

But yes - for Golf:

Pat Mayo, Geoff Feinberg, Rick Gehman, Gups Corner (no idea his real name haha) -- Then by following them, you will find some others.

Most should just cancel the bet. I know my site did.

VSiN and the Action Network are my follows. Also, Stanford Steve and the Bear. 

I also love to fade whatever Clay Travis says. Been pretty profitable.

like friendfromlowry, I am also chewing through my free $25 bets on DraftKings. My weekend was ok.

All-in-all, I turned $150 worth of free bets into $228. My biggest wins were Tulane over USC and I placed two separate bets on Pittsbugh/Baltimore (spread and Pittsburgh money line). I also got in on that Cinci "score any points to double your money" thing that DK offered.

As is tradition, the bet I felt safest about ended up losing. (Utah/PSU).


Currently my account is restricted because the Geocomply app is a heaping pile of garbage. I have two free $25 bets remaining that I may or may not be able to redeem.

The app doesn't require that, just fyi.

Yeah, I know. The mobile app worked fine up until my account got restricted. If they don't unblock my account I won't be too burned up since I was playing with house money anyway.
