How I Use Free SGP Bets to Score Big Wins

Hey friend! As a long-time DraftKings fanatic, people are always asking me how to use Same Game Parlays (SGPs) with free bets. Well, you‘ve come to the right place because I‘m going to walk you through my proven approach step-by-step.

Same Game Parlays are amazing – you can combine multiple bets from the same game to shoot for a big payday. And DraftKings is constantly giving free bets that are perfect for SGPs. I‘m going to show you how I use them to significantly bump up my win percentage.

An Overview of Same Game Parlay Bets

Before we get into the free bet fun, let‘s make sure you know what SGPs are all about.

SGPs allow you to combine multiple wagers from the same game into a single parlay bet. For example, you could bet on:

  • Point spread
  • Moneyline
  • Total points scored
  • Player props

All from the same game! As you add more legs to the parlay, the potential payout gets bigger and bigger. According to recent DraftKings data, their top performing SGP leagues are:

Sport Average Odds
NFL +263
NBA +432
MLB +584

As you can see, SGPs give you a chance to win BIG. Now let‘s get into how to use those free bets!

How DraftKings Free Bets Work

  • Awarded as site credit, not cash
  • Can only use free bets to place wagers
  • If you win, keep the winnings as withdrawable cash
  • Free bets expire after 7 days

It‘s important to note that you don‘t enter a wager amount when using a free bet. You just pick your bets on the slip and apply the free bet.

How I Use Free Bets for Same Game Parlays

I absolutely love getting free bets to use on SGPs. Here‘s my step-by-step approach:

  1. Build the SGP bet slip

Pick all your legs for that game – spreads, totals, props, whatever. The more legs the bigger the payout!

  1. Apply the Free Bet

Head to betslip, make sure "Use Bonus" is checked for the free bet.

  1. Place That SGP!

Confirm your bet and enjoy the sweat! No need to enter an amount when using the free bet.

Now for my top tips:

  • Shoot for longshot odds to maximize that free bet. A +500 MLB SGP pays 10x!
  • Consider moneylines over spreads for better odds.
  • Don‘t let free bets expire after 7 days! I put reminders in my phone.
  • Break that big $500 free bet into (5) $100 SGPs for better chances.

My SGP Betting Strategy

Here are some of my go-to strategies when building out an SGP using a free bet:

  • Combine a likely result (moneyline favorite) with a longshot (underdog spread). Balance safety and risk.
  • Target primetime games. Less data means more variance.
  • Fade heavy public betting trends. Zig when they zag!
  • Max out the legs. The more outcomes combined, the bigger the payout.
  • When in doubt, trust the data. Use sites like Pro Football Focus for smart picks.

The ability to combine multiple outcomes into a single bet is so powerful – especially when you can do it for free!
