FOX Bet has put together a special offer this weekend, and they’ve designed it for users in specific states. New users in Colorado, Michigan, or New Jersey can bet $10 to win $50 if their local team scores a point in a specific game this weekend or next week. No team has ever been shut out in NBA history, so unless you get mind-bogglingly unlucky, this is free money that you’ll receive in the form of a free bet.

Here are the eligible teams and games by state:

Colorado: Nuggets vs. Bucks (Mar. 2, 10 p.m.)
Michigan: Pistons vs. Raptors (Mar. 2, 7:30 p.m.)
New Jersey: Nets vs. Rockets (Mar. 3, 7:30 p.m.)
Pennsylvania: Sixers vs. Jazz (Mar. 3, 7 p.m.)

Multiply your money on big-name stars with headline boosts.

If you have already made your account at FOX Bet, you can still get in on the action with one of their headline boosts. They have offers on basketball — professional and collegiate — in addition to boxing and NASCAR. Here are their top headliners for this weekend:

NBA: Joel Embiid and Zion Williamson each score one or more dunks.
NCAA
(MICHIGAN ONLY): Double your money if Michigan scores at least one point against Indiana.
Boxing:
Triple your money if Canelo Alvarez wins before round four.
NASCAR:
Double your money if Chase Elliott and Kevin Harvick each finish in the top 10.

PointsBet Sportsbook 

Bet on NHL moneylines, get your money back in free bets if your team loses in overtime.

Who: All users are eligible.

PointsBet has put together a great offer for hockey bettors. Users who wager up to $50 on the moneyline can get all of their money back (in free bets) should their favored team lose.

If you’re looking for a relatively safe line, the Minnesota Wild have a home game against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. The Wild rank second in the West Division, and their goal differential (12) far outpaces Los Angeles’ (5). The Kings are on a strong 6-3-1 streak over their last 10, but I suspect that the Wild will be too much for them to overcome.

You can buy the Wild at -180 via PointsBet.

William Hill

Place a $50-plus moneyline bet, win $1 for each shot your team’s goal saves.

Bet Now: Click here to create your account.
Where: New Jersey
Who: All users are eligible.

You can always trust William Hill to come through with an entertaining special offer. If you place a $50 moneyline bet on any of the following games, you’ll win a free bet corresponding to the number of saves your team’s goal makes.

Bruins vs. Rangers
Flyers vs. Sabres
Blue Jackets vs. Predators
Capitals vs. Devils
Penguins vs. Islanders
Red Wings vs. Blackhawks

If you’re looking for a high-value play, the New Jersey Devils are plus-money underdogs (+122) against the Washington Capitals. That’s despite the strong play of goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood, whose save percentage (.935) ranks second-best among goalies with double-digit starts.
