PointsBet Make It Rain Promo

As you probably noticed for the last month, I’ve been betting the Make It Rain promo at our sponsor PointsBet. I thought it was a fun promo idea: bet $50 on the spread of a game and get $3 for every three pointer your team makes. And it turns out, it was a pretty nice promo overall.

My initial bets

As you can see below, I lost about $320 making these bets. See below

Now, losing $320 ain’t so good, but don’t forget I got some promo dollars.

Promo bets

I figured with the amount of bets I’d get, I would be able to bet division winners all across the league. Of course, I’d only bet the Sox in the AL Central and I’d skip the Cubs in the NL. But everyone else would get a bet:

TeamBet
Chicago White Sox @ +900 World Series Winner$51.00
Oakland Athletics @ +120$39.00
Los Angeles Dodgers @ -250$39.00
Miami Marlins @ +3500$39.00
Toronto Blue Jays @ +400$36.00
Milwaukee Brewers @ +375$36.00
New York Yankees @ -200$36.00
New York Mets @ +145$33.00
Chicago White Sox @ -150$33.00
Tampa Bay Rays @ +400$30.00
Arizona Diamondbacks @ +6000$27.00
Los Angeles Angels @ +350$27.00
Philadelphia Phillies @ +850$27.00
Boston Red Sox @ +1800$24.00
Washington Nationals @ +600$24.00
San Diego Padres @ +200$24.00
San Francisco Giants @ +5000 $21.00
Atlanta Braves @ +135$21.00
Houston Astros @ +130$21.00
Pittsburgh Pirates @ +7500$20.00
St. Louis Cardinals @ +160$18.00
Colorado Rockies @ +6000 $15.00
Seattle Mariners @ +3000$12.00
Cincinnati Reds @ +325$12.00
Baltimore Orioles @ +7000$12.00
Texas Rangers @ +5000$12.00

This is about $700 in free bets from the $320 loss, which is pretty damn nice. When me and BeefLoaf were gambling much more seriously a few years back, I wouldn’t have put this on futures. I would have been rolling it forward as quickly as possible and spending more optimally. However, now that I do this more for fun, it was an enjoyable exercise to get money down on all these division winners. If all the favorites win, which probably won’t happen, I’ll cut my losses in half. The more underdogs that win their divisions, the better it gets. And it gets really nice if the Sox win the World Series or Lance Lynn wins the Cy Young. Yeah, there are a few non-pictured bets.
