Black Friday is just about a week away, and if you’re like me, you could probably use some extra spending money to take advantage of all the hot deals that will soon be out there. Good news. There will be plenty of betting opportunities to find some winners this weekend. It’s Week 11 in the NFL and the race for the playoffs is revving up. Every Top 25 college football team is in action. There’s a full slate of soccer, college basketball, NBA, and NHL matchups, too.
Hey, here is a betting prop from you: Over/Under I spend 17.5 hours on my couch watching sports this week.
Take the over.
Anyway, I don’t know about you, but I find there to be something utterly enthralling about the possibility of paying for half of that new washer/dryer combo with a banger of a three-team parlay, or crossing off some items on your holiday shopping list thanks to a savvy prop bet. Regardless, if you’re hunting for some good deals, but don’t want to wait a week, then you need to check out the various promos some the New Jersey sports betting apps are offering this weekend – just be sure to hit the “bet now” button or links to take advantage of these deals, as some of them are exclusive to our audience.
If you haven’t already done so, there’s never been a better time to open an account with BetStars. That’s not lip service-I’m serious. On Saturday and Sunday, new users will receive a $50 free bet with no deposit and then $500 in free bets (with some caveats).
We like BetStars because of its straightforward interface and variety of fun and useful promos.
Here’s how the $50 free bet promo works: Between 12:01 a.m. Saturday morning and 11:59 p.m. Sunday night, a user downloads the app, signs up for a new account, and within one minute a $50 free bet will appear. If they try to use it they will be prompted to enter their details within the real money form, but they do not need to make a deposit.
BetStars also offers boosts on winning parlays with three or more legs, StarsStacks that provide bigger odds and payouts on players to score touchdowns in featured NFL games, and unique event promotions like the NFL 2 Minute Drill.
Oh, and NBA fans should definitely check out this Friday night offer:
There are plenty of fun and unique promos to take advantage of this weekend with DraftKings Sportsbook. On Friday night, DraftKings is offering Daily Odds Boosts around the top NHL and NBA games, including Jimmy Butler’s home debut with the Sixers. Be sure to also check out the Friday NBA Parlay Boost on the Bucks, Raptors, and Pelicans to win.
On Saturday, Daily Odds Boosts will be offered on the Notre Dame-Syracuse showdown at Yankee Stadium as well as a special cross-sport combined “over” on Michigan football and basketball.
Cap off the weekend on Sunday with eight special odds boosts on some of the NFL’s brightest stars, including Drews Brees and Carson Wentz, who will square off in what promises to be a shootout.
And don’t forget about DraftKings new Pools feature, which allows users to pick the outcomes of a set group of sporting in a pool-style format to win cash payouts based on finish.
This week’s contest features a $20 entry fee with a minimum of $200,000 in cash prizes.
If you or someone you know has a gambling problem and wants help, call 1-800 GAMBLER.
21+. NJ only. Eligibility restrictions apply. See website for details.
I really like this “First TD Insurance” promo that FanDuel is running for this Sunday’s NFL games.
Bet the first touchdown scorer and get up to $50 of credit back if your player scores a receiving or rushing touchdown touchdown later.
FanDuel is also running an NBA Local Team Bonus. Just place a 76ers, Knicks, or Nets moneyline bet on Friday night and double your winnings on wagers up to $100.
DraftKings and FanDuel have very similar offers this week. If you want to see more, read our DraftKings vs. FanDuel comparison on which sportsbook is better.
SugarHouse doesn’t have any special weekend promos running, but its sign up bonus remains excellent. New users will receive a 100% match on initial deposits up to $250. It’s basically free money, so if you haven’t signed up yet, I suggest doing so. Free money is good.
888sport will give you $10 just for signing up with no deposit required, but if you sign up, they, too, offer an enticing bonus.
And hockey fans can take advantage of 888sport’s everyday $5 cash bonus offer when placing on NHL live bets of $50 or more.
