FanDuel Sportsbook is coming in hot with its best offer yet for online sports betting in Colorado. They are offering 25-1 odds on any main event fighter for UFC 251, or “Fight Island,” if you prefer.
A new user who places a $5 bet on any main event fighter can get $125 if they win.
How It Works
In an attempt to gobble up new bettors heading into what looks to be, if all goes well, a DENSE six months of sports, FanDuel Sportsbook in Colorado is offering bettors an extreme odds boost for UFC 251.
Here’s how to get FanDuel’s 25 to 1 UFC offer:
- Sign up here if you’re in Colorado
- Register for FanDuel Sportsbook
- Download the FanDuel app
- The offer will appear on your profile in the app
We checked with FanDuel since there is no landing page for this offer, and here’s what they told us: “Once a user registers they will be served an interstitial directing them to download the app to claim the odds boost.”
Why It’s Such a Good Value
The longest odds on any main event fighter at FanDuel are +210. This promo boosts those, for any fighter, to +2500.
So I should just bet on the heaviest favorite? Yes, in fact you should.
Won’t FanDuel lose money here? Probably. But new sportsbooks, especially in Colorado, want to gain as many customers as they can early. Since sports betting just launched in Colorado and there hasn’t been a major professional sport played yet, FanDuel wants to acquire as many customers as possible. They view the $125 payout as just an extension of a signup bonus.
