If you still haven’t gotten in on New Jersey’s legal sports betting action, now is a great time to check out the various promos some of the best 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.
For those of you in Pennsylvania, PA sports betting is coming soon.
Here’s how it works: new users will get a site credit worth up to $500 if they lose their first bet. Losses are refunded into accounts within 72 hours. Quite literally, FanDuel is giving users a no-risk, can’t-lose opportunity just for signing up.
As football fans know, NFL games are often a tale of two much different halves. It’s always a tough pill to swallow when a bet that looks good early goes bad late. Take some of the sting out of the heartbreak with NFL Halftime Insurance. Just place a moneyline wager on any NFL team this weekend, and if your bet is winning at halftime but goes on to lose late, you will receive a refund in site credit of up to $25.
Similarly, pro basketball bettors can take advantage of FanDuel’s NBA OT Insurance. Don’t fall victim to excruciating overtime losses. Bet the moneyline on any NBA game, and if your bet loses, get up to $25 of your wager back in site credit.
If you’re looking to hit a bigger payout and want to try your hand at a parlay, then FanDuel’s December Football Parlay Insurance and December Basketball Parlay Insurance are for you. Place a four-leg football or basketball parlay. If three legs of your wager hit, but one is a dud, FanDuel will refund your parlay in site credit up to $25.
There are plenty of fun and unique promos to take advantage of this weekend with DraftKings Sportsbook.
On Sunday, Philadelphia’s season is on the line when the Birds look to avenge their 27-20 Week 10 loss to Dallas. A lot has changed since that first meeting. The defending Super Bowl champs now find themselves on the ropes in a must-win spot, reprising the familiar role of the underdog. While the stakes couldn’t seemingly be any higher in this pivotal division showdown between bitter rivals, our partners at DraftKings Sportsbook are upping the ante with a 3x Profit Boost for those who sign up by using our link and bet on the Birds to take down Dallas.
Also on Sunday, DraftKings is offering special odds boosts on the top Week 14 games, featuring star players like Saquon Barkley, Antonio Brown, Deshaun Waston, Christian McCaffrey, in addition to three special boosts on the Rams-Bears NFC showdown.
And while NFL’s push for the playoffs is in full gear, the action on the hardwood and the ice is also heating up, and DraftKings Sportsbook is giving its members a new way to wager on all of the games. Similar to its football pools, DraftKings is now offering NBA and NHL Sportsbook Pools. Users can bet small to win big in a pool-style pick’em format nearly every night. This week’s contests include multiple pick’em and ATS pools across different sports with payouts ranging between $1,000 and $50,000.
Both FanDuel and DraftKings are offering outstanding promos and specials this weekend, so if you want to see more, read our DraftKings vs. FanDuel comparison on which sportsbook is better.

We like BetStars because of its straightforward interface and variety of fun and useful promos.
If you haven’t already done so, there’s never been a better time to open account with BetStars NJ. It’s the season of giving and to get in the spirit, BetStars is offering users that sign up between now and Monday a $50 free bet with no deposit and up to $500 in free bets thereafter (with some caveats).
BetStars also offers boosts on winning parlays with three or more legs, StarsStacks that provide bigger odds, payouts on players to score touchdowns in featured NFL games, and unique event promotions like the NFL 2 Minute Drill.
Players should also check out BetStars’ Free $50 NBA In-Game Bet.
Just wager $50 pre-game on a designated NBA game each Friday and get a $50 in-game free bet to use on the same game. All you have to do is visit the “challenges window” to see the designated game and bet $50 or more pre-game to get your free credit.
One more note: BetStars has recently made some recent app improvements, making it easier for players to deposit into their accounts.
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.
Those looking to bet on college basketball will want to check out 888sport’s NCAA Challenge. Place a parlay bet of at least three legs at odds of -200 or higher on college basketball games and double your winnings up to $100 daily.
