Get in on Today’s NFL Action With a ‘No Sweat First Bet’

Kenny Pickett

Getty Kenny Pickett is set to make his preseason debut for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The NFL regular season is still almost a month away, but the preseason schedule is here in earnest, complete with a full slate of games today. And with it come some opportunities for sports betting action.

If you’re new to sports betting and haven’t yet set up an account, Heavy Sports’ partners at FanDuel Sportsbook have an offer you might want to consider: A “no sweat first bet” where if you lose your first bet, you’ll get a refund in free bets of up to $1,000. (The amount of the refund depends on how big your bet is. Bet $10 and lose, you’ll get $10 in free bets. Bet $100 and lose, you’ll get $1,000 in free bets. The same pattern holds, up to $1,000.)

NFL presesaon games, of course, are tricky to bet. The results of the games — who wins, who covers the spread — often hinge on which thrird-and-fourth-string players are in the game in the fourth quarter. But if you’re itching to bet football, the “no sweat first bet” offer may make sense for you this week. Think the Steelers will cover as 3.5-point favorites against the Seahawks? Give it a whirl, and if your bet loses, you’ll get refunded in site credits so you can take a shot at another bet sometime soon.

If you’re itching to get started and think preseason games are too risky, FanDuel Sportsbook has an insane amount of NFL futures bets available. Here are some of the many things on which you can bet:

  • Super Bowl champion
  • Conference champions
  • Division champions
  • Postseason awards winners
  • Individual team season win totals
