Updated:2024-04-29 00:08    Views:193

Online sports betting in North Carolina goes live tomorrow, and today is your last chance to claim the pre-registration offer at ESPN BET. The ESPN BET North Carolina promo code ACTNEWSNC gives you a $25 bonus bet for simply pre-registering before launch day.

Tomorrow, you'll earn an additional $200 in bonus bets with your first bet. You can bet the smallest amount possible, and ESPN BET provides the bonus no matter the outcome. You'll receive the bonus in $25 increments.

The ESPN BET promo code ACTNEWS is available for new customers in other legal states. It's a similar offer to NC, except you receive $150 in bonus bets following your first bet. ESPN BET provides five $20 bonus bets and one $50 increment.

It'll still be one more day before North Carolina bettors can place a wager. The bonus bets are available for any event or market, and my example below features Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series race at Phoenix.

Using your ESPN BET Bonus on NASCAR

Today's NASCAR Cup Series race at Phoenix Raceway marks the season's fourth event. Kyle Larson won last weekend at Las Vegas, and is a +550 favorite to win at Phoenix. Right behind him is defending Cup Series Champion Ryan Blaney (+700).

There's a good chance Blaney is the driver to beat on Sunday. He enters today's race with five straight finishes of fourth or better at the track, including three straight runner-up finishes.

In last year's Fall race, Blaney didn't need to win the race to claim the Championship. He accomplished that feat while finishing second to Ross Chastain. I don't expect another runner-up performance for Blaney on Sunday.

Betting Pick: Ryan Blaney to Win (+700)

NASCAR betting is excellent for a bonus bet because every driver presents value. We mentioned Larson is the favorite at +550 odds. Those odds would be a big longshot in the NFL, NBA, or NHL, but NASCAR has a larger field. It's perfect for a bonus bet because we want to target a market near +500 odds.

The +EV betting guide explains how you earn more expected value with a bigger longshot. Ultimately, you don't want to go too far because it'll have a low chance of winning. Blaney is a perfect bet because he fits the odds range and has an amazing history at Phoenix.

Let's say you use a $20 bonus bet on Blaney winning on Sunday. You would have $140 in winnings with a victory, but the $20 bonus goes away regardless of the outcome.
