FanDuel Dinger Tuesday Promo: All You Need to Know
Dinger Tuesday is an easy sportsbook promotion to understand: every Tuesday (while the promotion is active), players can bet $25 on a player to hit a home run.
Whether or not the bet wins, they’ll receive $5 in bonus bets for each home run hit by either team in that game.
It’s a setup that encourages players to bet on home runs in games where they expect several home runs to be hit – or, rather, betting on field conditions and matchups as much as on individual hitters.
Example of How it Works
Let’s say you chose to bet on an upcoming MLB game for Dinger Tuesday. You bet $25 on Shohei Ohtani to hit a home run for the Los Angeles Angels.
You’ll receive a hefty payout if Ohtani hits a home run, but you’ll also receive $5 in bonus bets since it’s Dinger Tuesday. In fact, you’ll receive that $5 in bonus bets for every home run, by any hitter, for either team in the game Ohtani is playing in.
Here’s the Strategy
Here are a few strategies to help increase the chances of your Dinger Tuesday bets being successful:
- Scout the Whole Lineup – Dinger Tuesday can lead to star sluggers being given less favorable odds by FanDuel, due to the increased attention on MLB contests. If you’ve decided on a game to bet on, finding a player further down the lineup who may have a favorable matchup against the opposing pitcher can be a great way to increase potential returns.
- Note the Pitching Matchups – Some pitchers have styles that lend them to being good targets of Dinger Tuesday bets. They may force contact on the pitch in a way that leads to more fly outs, but also increases their risk of surrendering home runs.
- Consider Wind and Field Conditions – Coors Field in Colorado is an easy target for Dinger Tuesday bets due to the altitude, but other conditions can increase the chance of home runs being hit. Take note of wind speed and direction.
- Stay Alert to Lineup Announcements – FanDuel doesn’t void hitter props; if you bet on a player to hit a home run and they ultimately aren’t included in the lineup for that game, the bet is already lost. Make sure that the hitter you’re betting on will take the field before finalizing your bet.
