Use Your No Sweat First Bet On A Florida Super Bowl Preview With FanDuel!


What’s Going On?

Florida’s two most southern NFL franchises face off on Saturday when Miami heads to Tampa Bay to open the preseason schedule for both organizations. These two are both coming off winning seasons and are expected to be playoff contenders. Could this be a Super Bowl LVII preview?

Two good teams and a great sportsbook deal make for one enjoyable August evening! When you sign up for a new Fanduel account you’re getting a special bonus of a No Sweat First Bet. Your first wager, up to $1,000, is covered. You lose the play and there’s nothing to worry about. FanDuel has your back.

It’s a one-point line in the visitors’ favor. If you take the Fins straight up the odds are -120, the Bucs are +100 without that point and the total is pegged at 32 ½.

Why Should You Care?

Preseason NFL football is a crapshoot. Maybe the starters will play a few series, or they might get pulled after one. The field is full of top draft choices and maybe one of them will explode onto the NFL scene or get hurt in the first quarter. Knowing that your new FanDuel account will cover that initial wager makes this a great game to play.  

Teams all have different philosophies when it comes to how they handle these practice games. Sometimes coaches are very conservative while other times you’ll see them acting like it’s a regular season contest. Looking back at the results from a team’s previous early games can help give you a sports betting advantage.

Will All The Activity In Miami Help Or Hurt The Dolphins?

Miami finished last season 9-8 (9-7-1 ATS) and lost to these same Buccaneers, 45-17, in Week 5. Saying that their offseason was tumultuous could be considered an understatement. They had some retirements, then they didn’t have as many. They picked up a lot of new faces and some really fast ones. Their owner was punished by the league and their previous coach is suing the franchise. Just another typical offseason for a team that hasn’t won a championship since 1973.

Last year the Dolphins went 2-1 (2-1 ATS) in the preseason and are 7-1 ATS in their previous eight overall, including four straight. On the road, they’re on a 4-1 run with the points involved and in the first half, since 2014, they’ve covered 11 of 14 and the last five in a row.

Are The Buccaneers Worth Betting When Tom Brady Takes A Personal Day?

Personal day, personal week or two, when the GOAT asks to take some time off during the preseason all you say is see you when you get back. Last year the Bucs were 13-4 (9-8 ATS) and lost to the ultimate champion Rams in the Divisional round.

They finished last year’s early games 1-2 (1-2 ATS) with both the losses at Raymond James Stadium. Those weren’t the first games Tampa Bay lost at home before the season started. In the last nine games at home in the preseason, they’re 1-8 against the spread. In those nine games, they’ve scored 16 points or less in all but one of them.

You Couldn’t Have A Better Game To Use That FanDuel Sportsbook “No Sweat Bet”!

The best part about this Fanduel deal is there’s absolutely no promo code needed. Just sign up for a new FanDuel account, ask for the bonus and your first wager involves no sweating at all, because if you lose, they’ll cover your loss with Free Play of up to $1,000.

It’s hard to ignore all the Ls that fill the preseason results column for the Buccaneers when they play at home. They’ve covered only one time since the end of August back in 2016. Even with losing a year of games due to Covid, that’s a long time of losing these “meaningless” games. Use your FanDuel deal to make your “No Sweat First Bet” on Miami. Then sprinkle some of your second bet on the over.
