As the 2021 March Madness tournament winds down, the sportsbook promos only seem to be heating up! Ahead of this weekend’s Final Four, FanDuel Sportsbook is offering an odds boost that will get you 40-1 odds on any team to win their game.
Yes, I said any team. Yes, this means you can bet Gonzaga to simply win their game at 40-1 odds.
The 2021 Final Four tips off Saturday, April 3 at 5:14pm ET with a matchup between Houston and Baylor, and the second game scheduled for 8:34pm between UCLA and Gonzaga. But you can get your boosted bets in as early as 12pm ET on Wednesday, March 31.
Did I already mention you get 40-1 odds?!
Of course, no sportsbook is going to offer you these odds without any sort of max bet attached. Here are the finer details of the offer:
- All Final Four games are in play
- Promo goes live at 12pm ET on March 31
- Max bet is $5
- Must be a new FanDuel customer
- In-app only
- Available in all states FanDuel Sportsbook is legal
Unlike some promos that call for big deposits/bets to truly reap the benefits, FanDuel’s Final Four promo only calls for a $5 deposit. So while this isn’t exactly free money, the risk is small.

Best Way to Use FanDuel Final Four Promo
Since this is an odds boost available on any team, conventional wisdom says taking the heaviest favorite is the smartest play.
Baylor has opened as 5-point favorites over Houston, while Gonzaga is laying 14 against UCLA. This boost would turn either Baylor from -210 odds to beat Houston, or Gonzaga from -1250 odds to beat UCLA, all the way to +4000.
A $5 bet on -210 odds would only win you $2.38, while a $5 bet on -1250 odds would only win $0.40, far from the $200 you’ll stand to win with this promo.
Of course, if you think either favorite is going to be upset, you can bet either underdog.
Your increase in profit isn’t as significant, but there is no profit if you don’t win the bet!
