FanDuel Shares The Risk With Free Bets On Giants And Eagles In New Jersey

Written By Bart Shirley on September 21, 2018

Supporting local teams like the Eagles, Giants, or Jets is important for building a sense of community. In that spirit, FanDuel Sportsbook‘s Local Locks promotion makes it painless to throw your support behind one of those teams.

This weekend, FanDuel is insuring the first moneyline bet you make on one of those teams. The site will replace up to $100 in the form of site credit if you lose your bet.

To enter, simply log onto your FanDuel Sportsbook account and place a bet on either the Eagles-Colts game or the Giants-Texans game. If you don’t have a FanDuel account, you will need to sign up for one to enter this promotion. Much like a playthrough requirement on casino websites, you will need to use the bonus funds before you can withdraw any of them.

Any unused funds will disappear from your account after seven days. So, make sure you get back in the game soon if this bet doesn’t go your way.

Local locks are a good thing after last week’s games

It’s probably for the best that FanDuel is offering some insurance on these teams. Heaven knows that New Jersey bettors want to see the hometown teams win. However, it’s hard to put money on either of them after they both lost in Week 2.

There’s no need to rub salt in the wound about what happened to the Jets this week. The men in green suffered a nasty loss in the last two minutes of the Sept. 20 game against the Browns and dropped to 1-2 on the season.

If you happened to bet on the Jets before yesterday, you are already set for this promotion. You will receive your cashback bonus by next Wednesday.

For Giants fans, they are currently the underdog in their upcoming showdown with the Texans. FanDuel currently has the crew from the Meadowlands at +215 against the Houston Texans.

Eagles fans may have a little better proposition for themselves if they actually want to win their bet. FanDuel expects the Philadelphia team to beat the Colts, with the defending world champions favored at -290 on the moneyline.

Thankfully, whichever team you take, the worst you can do is break even. FanDuel will definitely pay you back on this one, no matter the odds.
