How To Claim Your Bonus Bets With PointsBet Ohio Promo Code BONUSDAY
Having the protection of a bonus bet could come in handy when betting on one of Wednesday’s 12 NBA games—and PointsBet gives you two when you register for a new account. But how do you claim them? The process is easy:
- Download the highly-rated PointsBet Ohio app to your mobile device from the appropriate app store (the Google Play store for Android devices or the Apple App store for iOS devices).
- To start the registration process, click “Sign Up” in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
- Follow the directions to register for a new account.
- You’ll need to provide personal information like your name, mailing address, email address, and the last four digits of your social security card.
- Enter the PointsBet Ohio promo code BONUSDAY when prompted.
You can also get the ball rolling by clicking on our exclusive PointsBet Ohio promo code link. You’ll want to click on the red ‘Sign Up’ or ‘Sign Up Now’ buttons and then follow the directions to register for a new account. Once you do and make your first real money deposit, you’ll have two bonus bets at your disposal.
Now, one will be for a fixed-odds wager (i.e., point spread, moneyline, total, prop bets, etc.) and has a max value of $500. That means that if you lose your first wager, PointsBet will credit your account with bet credits equal in value to your stake up to $500. Let’s say you bet $250 on the Cavs to beat the Suns via the moneyline, but then the Cavs lose. PointsBet will credit your account with $250 in bonus bets.
But if they win, well—enjoy your winnings. If you bet more than $500, and they lose, PointsBet will credit your account with $500 in bet credits.
As for the pointsbetting wager, that one requires more of an explanation.
What Is Pointsbetting?
Pointsbetting is a unique form of betting where how much you win or lose is not determined until the game concludes. It’s a great chance to win big if you make the right decision, but that also means your losses can be more significant. Let’s look at an example:
The listed total for the Suns-Cavs game is (225), and you bet $10 that the final score will go over that number. Cleveland goes on to beat Phoenix 125-118 for a total of 243. Since the total was 18 points over, your $10 bet results in $180 in winnings ($10 x 18 additional points scored).
But let’s say the final score is 118-102 for a total of 220. Since the final score was five points under the total, you lose $50 ($10 x five points).
With PointsBetting, you get the opportunity for an incredible payday. But you could suffer a more significant loss, too.

Here are current odds on the Suns-Cavaliers game from top Ohio sports betting apps, plus a link to claim your $2,000 bonus from PointsBet Ohio.
NBA · Fri (1/6) @ 7:10pm ET
|Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, Cleveland, OH|
Suns (20-18 SU, 19-19 ATS) vs Cavaliers (24-14 SU, 19-16-3 ATS)
Cleveland has been a great home team this year and has gone 17-4 in 21 home games. The Cavs have won seven of their last 10 but have not fared well ATS, going 4-5-1 in those games (1-3-1 in their last five). They’ve gone 5-5 ATS in their last ten home games and 3-2 in their last five.
As for the Suns, Phoenix enters the game on a three-game losing streak and with losses in four of their last ten. But they are 5-5 ATS in their last 10; just 2-3 ATS in their last five. They are just 3-7 ATS in their last ten road games. The Suns have not been a good road team this year, with losses in six of 19 road games.
While Cleveland appears to be the better of the two teams this season (so far), recent history gives the Suns a slight edge. Phoenix has had Cleveland’s number with wins in the last five meetings between the two teams. However, this will be the first game between the two this season.
But this will be the sixth stop in a long road trip for the Suns that has not gone well (1-4). While they played well against the Nuggets in Denver (128-125 lost in OT), they lost their last three by 25, nine, and 19 points.
Our Pick: Cavaliers, -4.5
Spurs (12-25 SU, 16-21 ATS) vs. Knicks (20-18 SU, 20-16-2 ATS)
Here are current odds from top US sports betting apps:
NBA · Fri (1/6) @ 7:10pm ET
|Madison Square Garden, New York City, NY|
San Antonio beat New York a few days ago at home (Dec. 29, 122-115), but the Spurs have been struggling on the road, winning just five of 17 road games this season. However, they could be facing the right team to break their current four-game road losing streak.
The Knicks have done better away from home (11-8 in away games) compared to a 9-10 home record.
However, the Spurs have struggled on both ends of the court this season. Their point differential of -9.4 points is the worst in the NBA this season (they allow 9.4 points more than they score per game). On the other hand, New York has a +2.8 differential (they score 2.8 more than they allow).
The Spurs have been underdogs in their last 16 games; they’ve lost three of their last ten and have gone 4-6 ATS the spread in those games. San Antonio has gone 2-8 ATS in their last ten road games and 1-4 in their last five. As for the Knicks, they’ve gone 5-5 in their last ten but went 6-4 ATS in those games.
They’ve gone 2-3 ATS in their last five home games and 5-4-1 in their last ten.
Our Pick: Over 228.5 points; in San Antonio’s last ten games, the final score went over the listed total in nine; in the last five, the over is 5-0. In their last ten road games, the over is 7-2-1. The over is 6-4 in New York’s last ten and 4-1 in their last five home games.
