Thanksgiving is a big day for seconds – seconds of turkey and gravy, seconds of sweet potato casserole, seconds of pumpkin pie. And thanks to PointsBet, there’s also the opportunity for second chance bets should your initial sports wagers go bust. That is the “Win With 5 PointsBet Second-Chance Wagers” offer awaiting you.
Through PointsBet’s “second chance” programs, bettors who make a cash wager and lose can receive a certain refund amount in free bets or bet credits. Although the terms and conditions can change depending on which type of second chance promotion the sportsbook is offering at the time, the program is also tailor-made to get the most out of holiday weekends like Thanksgiving that are loaded with sports betting opportunities.
The current second chance promotion begins with creating a new PointsBet account and entering the promo code WELCOME. Users must then place a fixed-odds wager each day for five days, with no opt-in needed. For each bet that loses over that span, users can get up to $100 back in free bets or bet credits – a maximum of $500 for five $100 wagers placed. Second chance offers can be found on the PointsBet promo page, and activated by placing a first eligible wager through the provided link.
The long, sports-filled Thanksgiving weekend offers ample opportunity to make those five initial bets, or place those five second chance wagers. Need some ideas? We’re here to help.
Win With 5 PointsBet Second Chance Wagers : Day 1, Thursday
The usual Thanksgiving slate of NFL action should shake you out of your turkey coma. The Dallas Cowboys, on a heels of a dominating 40-3 victory in Minnesota, are 9-point home favorites at PointsBet over a New York Giants squad coming off a humbling 31-18 home loss to Detroit. The Lions meanwhile have covered in three straight games, winning all of them outright as underdogs, and host the Buffalo Bills as +330 underdogs at Ford Field.
Day 2: Friday
The college football weekend features a strong Friday slate that includes Baylor – which nearly upended undefeated TCU last weekend – as an 8.5-point underdog against an underperforming Texas team that’s covered only two of its last five. But Friday’s biggest game is in Cincinnati, where the Bearcats are 2-point home favorites with a New Year’s Six bowl berth likely on the line. But Cincy has covered just once in its past seven games, compared to the Green Wave covering six times over that span.
Day 3, Saturday
OK, maybe the Iron Bowl isn’t the biggest game of this rivalry weekend. But there’s still plenty of intrigue, given Alabama’s tendency to play games closer than expected – as evidenced by the Crimson Tide covering the spread just once in its past six outings, while 21.5-point underdog Auburn has covered in four of five. The best team against the spread this season? That would be Oregon State, which has covered nine times in 11 games and is a 3.5-point home underdog to rival Oregon.
Day 4, Sunday
Speaking of great teams against the spread: Sunday’s NFL slate sees the Tennessee Titans carry a streak of eight straight covers into a home game against Cincinnati. According to PointsBet, Tennessee is actually 1-point underdog against a Bengals squad that’s covered in seven of its last eight. And shake things up Sunday with a gander at the World Cup, where Spain and Germany meet in a clash of heavyweights. The Germans are +175 to win, with Spain at +150.
Day 5, Monday
The long weekend concludes with a Monday night NFL game between Pittsburgh and Indianapolis, with the Colts a 3-point favorite at PointsBet. It has been a rough stretch for the Steelers, who have lost three of four overall and two of three against the spread. While the Colts haven’t been any better – they enter having dropped four of five – they have covered two straight under interim coach Jeff Saturday. Both teams have also gone under in most games this season, putting the total of 39.5 in play as well.
And there you have it. One great way to win with 5 PointsBet second-chance wagers.
