Do you see the world through garnet-colored glasses? Is everything shaded in Dodger blue? How about whatever shade of highlighter the Oregon Ducks are deciding to wear that day? Does every towel look “terrible” to you?
If you are the kind of person who cannot separate your fandom from your betting, GT Bets is there to help. Sometimes it makes sense to wager on your favorite team. After all, they are your favorite team. You follow them inside and out and should know that team better than any other team out there. You know their tendencies, strengths, weaknesses, histories, and mindsets.
All of us, however, have made that mistake of overestimating or underestimating our favorite squads between the lines. Our hearts and minds don’t quite align. At GT Bets, you can get a little bit of an insurance policy in that regard. Log in to your GT Bets account before the start of the season and pick your two favorite NFL and NCAA Football teams and you’ll get a free half-point on their lines over the course of the season. Choose wisely because you cannot change your teams during the course of the season, but this can be a very beneficial advantage for astute bettors.
If your favorite team is the Cleveland Browns (God have mercy on your soul) and the line is +6.5 out there in the betting market, you’ll get it at +7. If the Browns are favored (LOL), you’ll get to shave a half-point off of the line, so -3 becomes -2.5. This promotion can be extremely helpful around key numbers, especially in a market like the NFL.
The same policy applies for the Alabama Crimson Tide, Ohio State Buckeyes, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, or Los Angeles Rams. Even if you don’t have a favorite team or only see rotation numbers and not teams, you can choose wisely and find a team that usually has inflated lines or look for an underdog that you think will have a much better season than people expect. If you think the UCLA Bruins won’t get enough respect in Chip Kelly’s first season, you can pick UCLA and get a free half-point of value on their games and that could really be a factor in your college football betting.
This promotion isn’t limited to the gridiron. It extends to the hardwood as well, where you can pick your favorite NBA and NCAA Basketball teams and get a free hook. The GT Bets interface will highlight your favorite teams so that you never forget the squads that you selected.
This promotion only applies to regular season games and only applies to straight ATS bets for the full game. It will not apply to totals, parlays, teasers, derivative bets, or live bets. Limits are $3000 for college football and $5000 for NFL with this promotion.
This promotion can be combined with the BTB100 sign-up bonus being offered by GT Bets, which will get new sign-ups a 100 percent deposit bonus up to $500. Other bonuses at GT Bets include 10 percent refund Tuesdays, a 15 percent refund on your monthly horse racing bets, and access to the Game Time Rewards loyalty program.
Playing “favorites” has never been more fun than it is at GT Bets right now.
