FanDuel has been running a promotion for its Indiana mobile site in which it adds one full point to the spread for every 250 bettors who sign up for the mobile app inside the Hoosier State and bet on the Indianapolis Colts to cover in Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Saints.
Boosted on Twitter through former Colts punter and online gambling promotional partner Pat McAfee, nearly 3,000 bettors have signed up and moved the line for the promo to the Colts being 20-point underdogs for the game. There is a maximum $50 bet with a payout of -110 associated with the promo.
FanDuel’s sportsbook currently has the Colts listed as 8.5-point underdogs as they look to avoid a fourth straight defeat and extend their faint playoff chances to Week 16. The Colts signed an exclusive deal with FanDuel in October for the daily fantasy sports company to be the team’s official fantasy sports partner for the remainder of the 2019-20 season.
Indianapolis is 6-5-2 against the spread, and the only other time it was a bigger underdog was in Week 5 when it upset Kansas City 19-13 on the road as an 11-point underdog. Eleven of Indianapolis’ 13 games have been decided by single digits.
Mobile sports betting his been well received in the state of Indiana, with FanDuel partnering with Blue Chip Casino in Michigan City. The Indiana Gaming Commission reported FanDuel had a $23.73 mm handle in the month of November and a total handle of $26.1 mm since being approved to offer mobile sports betting in October.
