We are now 37 days away from the kickoff of the the 2019 NFL season. With about a month left in the MLB regular season, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a combo promo for the NFL and MLB.
How it works is simple. For all MLB games between today, July 29th, and August 4th:
- Opt-in and place a pre-game paid single money line bet of at least $10 on any MLB game during the this promotional period.
- If your team scores 7 or more runs, DraftKings Sportsbook will credit you with a $5 free bet for Week 1 of the upcoming football seasons (CFB or NFL).
- This is available for every game during the promotional period. Your first money line bet on each game is your qualifying bet.
- Live bets, parlays, cash out bets, free bets, voided bets, and odds boosts are excluded.
- The free bet will be issued within the next business day.
If you’re a Phillies fan, you might want to consider getting in on this. After scoring 7 or more runs just once in their previous 8 games, the Phillies have recorded 7 or more runs in back-to-back games, albeit with one of those games being a loss.
In this upcoming stretch of games, keep an eye on the Phillies’ matchup against the Chicago White Sox. The Sox statistically have one of the worst starting rotations in the league, ranking 26th in team ERA (5.06), 21st in total runs allowed (542), and 23rd in opponent batting average (.266). If the Phillies are going to score 7 or more runs against any team within this promotional period, you might be best off betting on one of those games.
With football season right around the corner, DraftKings Sportsbook is clearly looking to take advantage of what remains of this current MLB season as we begin to look ahead to the NFL.
