  • FanDuel Sportsbook was offering a crazy 40-1 promo for college basketball
  • The sportsbook has announced they’ll be extending the promo to run through the NCAAM National Championship game, between Baylor and Gonzaga

Leading up to the Final Four, FanDuel Sportsbook was offering an insane 40-1 promo. The offer allowed new users to get bet $5, and win $200 on any team. I’m sure there were a lot of nervous people out there last night as UCLA took Gonzaga, who was a heavy 14-point favorite, to overtime. Fortunately, the Bulldogs pulled it off and many new users have received a major boost to their bankroll.

As we thought the offer had expired, FanDuel has gone and extended this 40-1 promo through the National Championship game on Monday. Let’s take a quick run through what is on the table when Gonzaga takes on Baylor Monday night.

Unsure which team to put your $5 on? Let me break it down for you real quick.

Baylor is fresh off a Final Four dismantling of Houston. The Bears were up 25 points by halftime, and went on to win 78-59. Baylor shot the ball well from deep, didn’t allow Houston many second chance opportunities, and contested every shot.

Gonzaga, on the other hand, faced their toughest test of the season against UCLA. The Bulldogs struggled to defend the Bruins’ size down low, gave up far too many offensive rebounds, and didn’t shoot the ball particularly well. The game was set to go to a second overtime before Jalen Suggs hit a three at the buzzer, from just inside half-court, to give the top-seeded team in the tournament a 93-90 victory.

Gonzaga is currently listed as 4.5-point favorites against Baylor, and are -200 on the moneyline. A $5 wager on the Bulldogs at -200 odds would normally only win you $2.50. But with this promo you’d be winning $200 off that bet.

Baylor’s odds to win the game are currently listed at +168, meaning a $5 bet would win you $8.40.

Either way you play this, your potential profit is going to skyrocket since the Zags aren’t laying another 14 points, as they did in the Final Four. The nature of this promo does require you to pick a winner, unlike some others we’ve seen. So don’t concern yourself too much with what the “logical play” is.
