FOX Bet Promo: Free $5 Bet for Packers vs Cardinals TNF & $500 Risk-Free Bet

FOX Bet Promo: Free $5 Bet for Packers vs Cardinals TNF & $500 Risk-Free Bet

Who doesn’t love a little free cash to start the NFL betting week? That’s exactly what the FOX Bet promo code will unlock. The operator is offering both its new and existing customers a free $5 bet on Thursday night’s huge Cardinals-Packers game.

Not only will you get $5 to wager on any bet before or during Thursday night’s game, you can opt in every week at FOX Bet for a free $5 bet on that week’s Thursday Night Football game.

There’s no catch, no fine print, and no other bet required to cash in. Bettors simply head to FOX Bet each week, opt into the promotion and place a $5 bet on any set of odds for the Thursday Night Football game that week. The window for opting in is open beginning Tuesday morning all the way up until the end of the Thursday game.

Not only do new sign-ups get the $5 free bet, they also qualify for a risk-free first bet on the site of up to $500. Should your first bet (not the free bet) lose, FOX Bet will refund your wager with site credit, which can be wagered on another bet.

Quite simply, the FOX Bet promotion is one NFL bettors should take advantage of each week.

How FOX Bet $5 Free TNF Bet Works

Beginning each Tuesday morning, bettors can log into their FOX Bet account and find the free $5 promotion under the “Challenges” section of the website’s home page. It’s important to note here that players will need to opt in each week to receive the promotion.

The $5 is applied automatically to a player’s account and can be used on any NFL odds related to that week’s Thursday Night Football game. Because the promotion runs through 11:59 p.m. ET, bettors should be able to use their free $5 bet on in-game action in addition to traditional game bets and player props.

FOX Bet has an excellent list of available bets for NFL games, so bettors should easily find something to wager on. Bettors will need to select the $5 promotion in their bet slip for the wager to go into effect. Simply placing a $5 bet will take funds from your balance.

Though the $5 bet itself is not eligible to be cashed out, any winnings from bets placed using the promotion may be withdrawn immediately. There are no playthrough requirements.

The promotion is currently open to legal bettors in Pennsylvania, New Jersey,Colorado and Michigan.


Betting the Packers-Cardinals Game

Though the bar to reach was rather low, Week 8 will feature the best Thursday Night Football matchup of the season, and sportsbooks are gearing up for a ton of action. The NFL’s last remaining undefeated team, the Arizona Cardinals, will host Aaron Rodgers and the 6-1 Green Bay Packers in what could be a preview of the NFC Championship Game.

Sports bettors should prepare for plenty of points, with the Cardinals ranking fourth in the NFL in points per game and the Packers averaging 27.5 points since their Week 1 embarrassment against the Saints. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the over —s et by betting sites at 51 — is a sure thing: The Cardinals have gone under in four of seven games, while the Packers have gone under in five of seven games.

Both teams are 6-1 against the spread this season, trailing only the 6-0 Cowboys for the best mark in the NFL. But Arizona will have an advantage in this one if All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams misses Thursday night’s contest, as expected. Adams was placed on the COVID-19 list on Monday and will need two negative tests to be eligible to play on Thursday. Betting apps already shifted the line more than two points in the Cardinals favor because of the news.

Even if Adams can go, the Packers will need some luck slowing down MVP favorite Kyler Murray and the Cards. Arizona is 3-0 at home, and Murray has tallied eight touchdowns in those games.
