The chain wrote in a press release:

According to Buffalo Wild Wings gaming partner BetMGM, the moneyline for the game going into overtime opened at +875, meaning a $100 bet would net $975 (including stake) if the game goes to OT. This translates to Vegas thinking America has approximately a 10% chance of winning free wings!

You’ll have to wait to claim your order, though: The offer requires consumers to dine in the United States or Canada on Feb. 17 from 4–7 p.m. local time.
