It’s Week 17 of the NFL season, and a pivotal AFC North rivalry game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens is in the primetime slot Sunday night. Ahead of this matchup, FanDuel has a welcome bonus for new users and a promo available specifically for new users in Ohio, where sports betting is legal as of 12:01 a.m. Sunday. For a rundown of the available bonuses at FanDuel and a look ahead at Sunday Night Football, keep reading.
FanDuel promo code for Sunday Night Football
There’s no promo code necessary to claim the FanDuel Sportsbook welcome bonus. To sign up, make your way to the website via a FanDuel promo code link, click on the join button and set up an account. You will then be eligible for whatever welcome bonus applies in your state.
In most of the states where FanDuel Sportsbook is legal, the promo is a “no sweat first bet,” making your first wager eligible for a refund if it loses, up to a maximum of $1,000. The refund takes the form of site credits.
In Ohio, where online sports betting is officially live and legal as of 12:01 a.m. on New Year’s Day, the FanDuel welcome bonus is a little different: If you make a first wager of $5 or more, you’ll receive $200 in bonus bets, win or lose.
Note that these bonuses don’t work as real money; you’ll need to wager them within seven days of receiving them or they’ll expire. A wager that you place using any of these site bonuses will not include the amount of your wager in any potential payout.
In order to register for a FanDuel account and claim the welcome bonus, you must be located in a state where FanDuel is legal and be of legal betting age in that state.
FanDuel Sunday Night Football preview
This week’s Sunday Night Football game will see the Pittsburgh Steelers visit their division rivals, the Baltimore Ravens. The game kicks off at 8:20 p.m. Eastern at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
The Ravens have clinched a place in the playoffs already with their win over the Atlanta Falcons on Dec. 24 and are sitting on a 10-5 record that puts them one game shy of the Cincinnati Bengals in the race for the AFC North. It would be their first division title in three years if they were to pull it off, but it will likely take wins in their remaining two games, including an all-important Week 18 matchup with the Bengals.
The Steelers, for their part, are sitting on a 7-8 record and will be eliminated from playoff contention if they lose to the Ravens on Sunday night. It’s also possible they’re eliminated before the game even kicks off if other results on Sunday don’t go their way. Nonetheless, head coach Mike Tomlin will be looking to avoid what would be his first losing season while keeping the Steelers in the race for the postseason when they face their rivals on Sunday.
