Fans of the reigning NBA Western Conference champions can score a hefty promotion from FanDuel Sportsbook on Friday night.
That’s because the official sportsbook partner of the Phoenix Suns is bringing its “Spread the Love” promotion back to online sports betting in Arizona, allowing fans to influence the spread of the team’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
How the Spread the Love Promo Works
The deal allows Arizona NBA betting customers to shift the spread one point in favor of the Suns for every 200 bets placed in the market benefiting the home team.
As of Friday morning, the “Spread the Love” promotion, which started at +3.5, is up to +139.5 (-110).
Anyone looking to take part in the “Spread the Love” promotion using Arizona sportsbooks and betting apps must bet in the special market window and not wager in the regular game market.
Everyone that places a bet using the promotion will get the final spread, regardless of when they placed their wager.
Friday’s promotion has a $50 maximum bet with -110 odds. The promotion closes at tipoff, which is set for 7:05 p.m. Arizona time.
A representative from FanDuel Sportsbook told BetArizona.com the Cardinals’ promotion netted customers $1.4 million.
How the Phoenix Suns Have Performed So Far
The Suns showed signs of success and struggle during their 110-98 season-opening loss to Denver on Wednesday night before a crowd of 16,074 at downtown’s Footprint Center.
Wednesday’s opener saw the Suns struggle to shoot effectively, hitting 41.4% of their shots (to Denver’s 53%). Mikal Bridges led Phoenix in scoring with 16 points.
Last year’s transcendent scorer for the Suns, guard Devin Booker, hit 3-of-15 shots and scored 12 points. Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton had 15 points apiece.
The Suns are coming off a 51-21 season that saw the franchise capture its first conference championship in 28 years.
The team’s fans will look to capture a win of their own Friday thanks to the “Spread the Love” promotion from FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona.
