The delayed start to the new MLB season has not only kept baseball fans waiting for a taste of action, but also punters hoping to nab a great deal or two when the season eventually did start.
And now that the season is underway, it’s great to hear that one of the best value promotions from last season at FanDuel Sportsbook is back again this week.
That is the $5 Dinger Tuesday offer and we will explore exactly what makes this such a good offer for punters below.
First online wager only. Refund issued as site credit. 21+ and present in NJ, PA or WV. Gambling problem? Call 1-800 GAMBLER or in WV visit www.1800gambler.net. Terms apply.
$5 Dinger Tuesday Details
To claim this offer, log in to your FanDuel Sportsbook account and then head over to the promotional page called $5 Dinger Tuesday.
Scroll down the page and then click on the green Opt In button to enter yourself into the promotion.
Next head on over to the Pre-Live, “To Hit A Home Run” prop wager betting section for any of the MLB games that are taking place today (12th April).
All games on this date are eligible but only your first qualifying bet for this offer will count towards the promotion.
Place a straight $25 or more bet on the “To Hit A Home Run” market with cash (bonus funds, free bets or site credits are not allowed for this offer).
Once your bet has been placed then you can sit back and watch the action unfold.
Then if in your game someone scores a home run for either of the teams, you will receive a free $5 bet, up to a maximum of $25 in free bets for the game.
Furthermore, you will get these free bets regardless of whether your qualifying bet is a winner or a loser!
You should have your free bets with you within 72 hours of your bet being settled and you then have a week to spend your free bets before they expire.
As is customary with free bet offers, if you use a free bet and it wins, then your free bet stake is not returned with any winnings you achieve from the bet.
This is a great offer and was massively popular with punters last season at FanDuel so let’s take a look at today’s fixtures and see what games you could be betting on.
Today’s MLB Fixtures
The full list of MLB fixtures taking place today that you could bet on for this offer are:
- Red Sox @ Tigers
- Guardians @ Reds
- Mariners @ White Sox
- Cubs @ Pirates
- Athletics @ Rays
- Mets @ Phillies
- Brewers @ Orioles
- Blue Jays @ Yankees
- Marlins @ Angels
- Nationals @ Braves
- Dodgers @ Twins
- Royals @ Cardinals
- Rockies @ Rangers
- Astros @ Diamondbacks
- Padres @ Giants
After three,four or five games of the season, no team has a 100% record heading into this set of fixtures. It is the Padres with the best record in all the divisions, with a 4-1 record, however many other teams have lost just one game including the Phillies, Cardinals, Cubs, Rockies, Rays, Blue Jays, White Sox and Astros.
Similarly no team has yet to win a game, but several have won just once, including very surprisingly, the Dodgers and Red Sox and not so surprisingly, the Rangers.
There’s no word yet on whether €5 Dinger Tuesday will become a regular event this season as it was last but I think the chances are good that it will be back again, if not next week, then shortly thereafter.
