It’s called a no-sweat bet, which means you can bet any amount up to $1,000 on any game or event on Saturday.
Here’s how it goes:
- If your first bet wins: you keep the winnings and your deposit.

No code is needed — you can register with this link.
I have provided some examples, practical advice and an overview of betting on the CFB slate with no sweat betting on Saturday.
Your first bet without a sweat and Saturday CFB
We always suggest betting on more money bets when using a betting promotion. You are sure to collect more expected value over time this way.
The expected value means the margin between the real chances of something happening and the odds displayed by the bookmaker.
Say you have a $200 reserve to bet on Clemson-Syracuse at noon and consider this game from Collin Wilson’s Week 8 betting card:
The Syracuse defense may have issues defending Clemson despite ranking high in the advanced categories. Purdue threw for over 400 yards and left plenty of scoring opportunities on the table. With a 3-3-5 scheme fresh in the Tigers’ minds, a 99th ranking in defensive trick rate suggests Uiagalelei and Shipley will reach the line of scrimmage at top speed.
Action Network’s projection has Clemson the two-touchdown favorite with a total in the 50s. The total continues to bounce between two of the biggest key numbers at 51 and 48.
Considering both attackers prefer to move the ball on the ground and will be successful in Death Valley, there will be scoring opportunities that will give the most value.
|More than 49.5 points in total||-110|
- If this bet succeeds, you win $416 and keep your initial deposit of $200. You would hold a total of $616.
- If one or more legs of this bet do not hit, you receive $200 in free bets.

How to Use Free Bets for Later CFB Games
Think of free bets as betting credits in a way. You can place bets with them to win real money, but you cannot withdraw them. If your bet wins, you can cash out the profits.
So, you have $200 in free bets and turn to the latest games list. Let’s say you bet this bet:
|East Carolina +4.5||-105|
Here’s how free bets would work in this scenario:
- If all parlay legs are hit, you win $1,186 in cash ($200 x 5.93). The $200 disappears, but you have profited from your initial deposit by $986.
- If one or more parlay legs do not touch, you have $0.
If you’re considering taking that bet, here’s some additional context to those picks from our CFB Stuckey expert:
Hawaii vs. Colorado St. at 4 p.m. ET: Since 2011, Hawaii has only recorded 47-80-5 (37%) ATS. Only UConn cost bettors more money during this period.
East Carolina vs. UCF at 7:30 p.m. ET: Since 2005, UCF head coach Gus Malzahn has thrived against the numbers as a conference road favorite with a 16-7 ATS record (69.6%). This makes him the sixth most profitable coach (out of 324) when scoring against a league foe during that span.
California vs. Washington at 10:30 p.m. ET: Cal head coach Justin Wilcox boasts an impressive 22-9-1 ATS record (71%) as an underdog, covering by an average margin of 4.4 ppg. That includes an absurd 16-3 ATS mark (84.2%) when catching more than seven points (6-0 at home). In contrast, he is just 8-15-1 ATS (34.8%) as the favorite.
