The Kentucky Wildcats are set to take on the No. 22 Florida Gators Saturday in a showdown between two SEC foes, and FanDuel Sportsbook is giving out $200 in bonus bets to customers that redeem a FanDuel promo code before kick-off.
FanDuel is the leader in American sports betting. One of its many betting markets is college football, and this is the perfect time for fans of the sport to open up an account with the promise of $200 in bonus bets.
The deal is valid for all new FanDuel customers 21 years or older in any legal state. If you're betting from Kentucky, then have a look at the best sportsbooks available for Kentucky players.
There are only a few steps between you and the full $200 reward. All that you need to do is follow these steps and you will unlock the full prize.
Bonus bets are essentially credits that cannot be withdrawn or transferred from FanDuel. These bonus bets have no direct cash value but can be used to win cash prizes with winning wagers.
Bonus bets will be processed within 72 hours and have to be used within seven days or else they will expire. These bets are not restricted to just college football betting and can be used anywhere on the FanDuel menu.
The Gators have won three straight and are ranked 22nd in the country, but it’s the Wildcats that head into the game with an unblemished 4-0 record. Kentucky also won the lone meeting between the two last year 26-16 in the second week of the season.
The winner will assuredly be ranked in the next national poll, and the question is whether Florida will move into the top 20 or drop out of the rankings while Kentucky slides in. Here’s how the oddsmakers view the matchup.

|Kentucky||-1.5 (-108)||-122||Under 44.5 (-110)|
Kentucky is a slight favorite in their home stadium fresh off a 45-28 win over the Vanderbilt Commodores. They’re averaging 38 points per game, though quarterback Devin Leary is only completing 58.9% of his passes.
The Wildcats’ defense is once again among the best in the conference. It has only surrendered 15.5 points per game but did just allow 28 to an uninspiring Vanderbilt offense and will need to be better against a stronger Florida outfit.
The Gators were handled easily by Utah in their season opener but have looked like a different team since then, winning all of their games by at least two scores including a 29-16 home victory against Tennessee.
UF QB Graham Mertz played his best game of the season last week against the Charlotte 49ers, completing 87% of his passes for 259 yards and a TD. Florida’s defense has, like Kentucky’s, also been up to the challenge and allowed just 13.5 points per game thus far.
Kentucky is yet to face a team with a winning record and will get their toughest test of the young season in Florida.
Both teams will struggle to run the ball against their opponents’ tough front line. Kentucky wideout Tayvion Robinson has lots of playmaking ability, but we’d lean toward Florida because they have a greater chance to move the ball down the field.
