What is Dinger Tuesday?
Dinger Tuesday is a promotion that FanDuel offers every Tuesday. If you opt-in and place a $25 pre-game bet on a player to hit a HR, you will get $5 back for every HR hit in that game (max $25) regardless of whether your player hit a HR.
So, for example, if we take Kris Bryant +300 to hit a HR in a Cubs-Cardinals game ($25 to win $75) and he doesn’t HR but the game has a total of 3 HR, we would get $15 back for a net loss of $10.
If, in the hypothetical scenario described above, Kris Bryant did have one of the 3 HR we would win $75 on the Bryant HR plus get the $15 back for a net total of $90.
Last Week Recap
I took the last two weeks off for my wedding so my recent performance was on 8/10. It was out first losing Dinger Tuesday, but we only gave back $12. I’m very pleased with 4-for-5 profits and up over $275 total in the short time I’ve been doing this.
TOTAL: 4-1, +$287.50
