fanduel sportsbook: up to $300 In Bonus Bets

As stated above, new FanDuel Sportsbook customers will receive $100 in bonus bets after registering with this operator. Believe it or not, that can go a long way to kick-start your sports betting journey, especially if you value bankroll management.

It’s important to note that bonus bets aren’t exactly the same as cash wagers. For one, you can’t withdraw bonus bets from your FanDuel account. You’ll only receive the winnings from a wager that was placed with bonus bets — rather than the full payout of a typical cash bet.

Once wagers can officially be placed on FanDuel Sportsbook’s launch date of March 11, new users can then haul in another $200 in bonus bets after making their first $5 wager. Those can be used for the 2024 ACC Tournament, which gets underway a day later. You can wager conference tournament futures, single-game odds, and many other betting markets.

Duke vs. Virginia Odds: Betting Preview

The key to this ACC tilt will likely boil down to whether this game features a high or low-posession affair. While the Blue Devils have slowed down the tempo a tad in conference play, it still ranks above the D-I average in adjusted pace.

On the flip side, the ‘Hoos have been well-known for grinding the clock under Tony Bennett. This season is no different. However, this year’s squad is one of the least proficient units he’s ever had, ranking outside the top 150 in offensive efficiency (per Haslametrics).

If Virginia fails to score proficiently, it will allow Duke to generate more fast-break opportunities. Granted, the Cavaliers boast a fairly stout transition defense, meaning the Blue Devils may still forced to work in the half-court.

Nevertheless, their pack-line scheme is exploitable. Over the last 10 games, they’ve surrendered a 42.1% clip on corner 3-pointers (via CBB Analytics). Five-star freshman Jared McCain & Co. can certainly take advantage.

In the future, let’s say you want to use some of your bonus bets on the Blue Devils to cover a spread at -110 odds. If it wins, $90.90 in cash will be shipped off to your FanDuel account. For more college basketball betting tips, subscribe to Outside Shots,’s podcast.

Where Can You Bet On College Basketball Player Props?

North Carolina, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia all outlaw betting on college props. Other states match the guidance of banning in-state school prop betting.

Virginia allows betting on in-state schools but not props on in-state players. The remaining states with sportsbooks allow wagering (plus live bets) on college props, including in-state teams.
