FanDuel Sportsbook NBA Offer – Risk Free Bet – February 29, 2024
Best of all, it’s completely FREE! No purchase or wager is required to participate
FanDuel Sportsbook NBA FREE Over/Under Contests
It helps if you have some advance knowledge about the NBA teams and their scoring tendencies. But it’s not a requirement. You could have beginner’s luck!
But first, you need to join the site in order to participate.
This NBA Totals Contest is open to any player with an active FanDuel Sportsbook or FanDuel Daily Fantasy Sports (DGS) online or mobile account. If you’re not already registered, you can sign up here at FanDuel Sportsbook.
You will receive a fantastic welcome offer for new players who join the site in 2021. The first real money bet you make–up to $1,000–is risk-free! In other words, if the bet loses, it will cost you nothing because you will get a full refund!
The current NBA Over/Under Contests got underway on Thurs., March 11 and continue through May 16. For each NBA game televised live on TNT during that time period, you will be asked to do the following:
- Log into your FanDuel Sportsbook account prior to the end of the first quarter.
- Submit your answers to all of the prop questions for that game.
Each game is a separate contest
If you missed the first four games (two on March 11 and two on March 16), no problem. There are many more games still remaining to be played, starting with next Tuesday, March 23. Each game is a separate contest with a new $5,000 prize pool and a new opportunity to win.
For your convenience, a copy of the complete schedule of upcoming NBA games being broadcast on TNT is included here. Keep in mind that as with all NBA games this season, these schedules are subject to change. Be sure to check for any possible last-minute lineup changes or game postponements.
Also, note that all of the games included in these contests take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and each scheduled day includes an NBA doubleheader. The first game is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. ET, and the second game is scheduled to start at 10 p.m. ET. To maximize your chances of winning, you should enter the contest for both games. However, you can only submit one set of answers for any given game.
What can you win in the FanDuel NBA Over/Under Contests?
Each game comes with its own separate guaranteed prize pool of $5,000. Those contestants who answer the most questions correctly for that game will split the prize pool. All prizes will be in the form of site credit.
Additional terms and conditions
The prizes are not transferable or exchangeable for cash and must be used either for wagering with your FanDuel Sportsbook account or entering FanDuel DFS contests.
Players have up to seven days to use their prize to place sportsbook wagers and up to 14 days to enter DFS contests. Any part of a prize that has not been used within that allotted time frame will be forfeited.
In addition, prior to being permitted to withdraw any winnings from your applicable sportsbook wagers, you must deposit a minimum of $10 into your sportsbook account. Prior to being permitted to withdraw any winnings from applicable DFS contests, you will need to deposit a minimum of $1 into your DFS account.
The rules do not place any limit on the number of different contests you can win during this promotion. In other words, this is an opportunity for some players to win a fortune.
On the other hand, entering these contests costs nothing, So, by all means, go ahead and take a shot even if your knowledge of the NBA and its players is very limited. Once you enter a few contests, watch the games on TV, and get the hang of the sort of questions you need to answer, your chances of winning should improve. Or maybe you will be lucky right from the get-go.
All winners are solely responsible for any applicable federal, state, or local taxes they might incur associated with these prizes.
The bottom line
The FanDuel website doesn’t go into any detail about how the $5,000 prize pool for each game will be divvied up. So, there is no way to know beforehand how many winners there will be and how big the individual prizes will be. Some information should have been provided, even if it is only an estimate.
It would have also been helpful to see a couple of sample questions beforehand to have a clearer idea of what you will have to answer in each case. Presumably, besides picking either the over or under on the whole game, you will have to answer other questions regarding team or first quarter or first half totals and/or individual player totals.
I recommend looking at the specific questions shortly before the game and then doing appropriate background research to try to come up with the best possible answers.
Also, since the lines are fixed beforehand and you are allowed to enter anytime during the first quarter of the game, take advantage of this opportunity. Turn on your TV early enough to catch the pregame discussion, get the starting lineups, and find out if which players are out or expected to see limited time due to injuries. Then watch the game for the first few minutes to get an idea of the tempo and see if your initial over or under predictions are likely to hold up.
Of course, you also have the option to make in-play bets when you place real money wagers. But then, the line is adjusted accordingly. With these contests, you get the best possible scenario–a free bet with no adjustment in the line when you place your bet after the game starts!
Summary and conclusion: This FanDuel Sportsbook promotion is a winner!
In summary, while the description of the contests and what you can win could have been less sketchy, my overall assessment is that this is a great promotion. If you’re already a FanDuel player or wish to join, don’t let this great money-making opportunity pass you by!
