Volunteers Fans Can Boost Their Game-Watching Experience With FanDuel Promo

Posted on November 5, 2020

This Saturday marks the first Saturday with legal sportsbooks running in the Volunteer State. FanDuel wants to celebrate the big occasion with a Tennessee Volunteers promo for fans.

FanDuel is offering an astounding odds boost on Saturday night’s Tennessee at Arkansas football game to new users. That could make a Volunteers victory even sweeter.

FanDuel Volunteers odds boost promo

If you’re new to FanDuel Sportsbook, it’s time to act. Download the app, sign up, and make a deposit. Then, navigate over to the market for Saturday night’s Razorbacks-Volunteers tilt, which starts at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Place a wager of up to $5 before kickoff on the Tennessee moneyline. FanDuel will boost your odds on that wager to +2500. Should the Volunteers win, your payout would be $125.

For bettors looking to take this deal, the offer is valid in-app only. It also replaces the $1,000 risk-free bet upon sign up.

New users are only eligible for one of the sign-up promotions.

Right now, FanDuel has Tennessee as a -124 favorite against Arkansas. The spread between the two 2-3 SEC teams is a razor-thin 1.5 points, and the total currently sits at 52.5 points.

TeamsSpreadMoneylineTotal
Tennessee-1.5 (-110)-124O 52.5 (-108)
Arkansas+1.5 (-110)+102U 52.5 (-114)

Bettors considering either of those other markets should note that in each of the Razorbacks’ last eight games, the underdog has covered. Additionally, the under has hit in seven of the Volunteers’ last eight games against unranked teams.

That could mean this game will be a regression to the mean on both of those trends. These two teams haven’t seen each other in five years, so there isn’t much recent data of use in a head-to-head format.

No matter which new-user promotion bettors choose for this matchup, they are getting a good value with FanDuel.

FanDuel’s push to become the Tennessee sports betting authority

Earlier this week, FanDuel inked a partnership with the Memphis Grizzlies. The multi-year deal makes the company an official daily fantasy sports and sports betting provider of the NBA franchise.

For FanDuel, that’s a good amount of exposure to potential customers, especially when the Grizzlies welcome fans back into the FedExForum. It’s part of a larger plan as well.

Mike Raffensperger, chief marketing officer of the FanDuel Group, shared the company’s ambitions in the Volunteer State just ahead of the actual launch.

“We are the number one online sportsbook in America,” Raffensperger said. “We fully expect and desire to be the number one online sportsbook in Tennessee.”

While the status of number one online sportsbook varies depending on what metrics and standard you use to quantify that statement, one of the most telling measurements is market share. One of the best ways to measure is what percentage of a state’s overall annual/monthly handle an individual operator claims.

FanDuel competes for that distinction on a regular basis in many of its other markets like Indiana, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. It’s too early to tell whether it will do the same in Tennessee.

Attractive promos for popular sports in the state could aid that cause.
