DraftKings Sportsbook NJ Betting Update: NFL and CFB Specials

Joe DiProsperos - August 19, 2019

With the NFL preseason in full swing and the regular season getting closer by the day, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a slew of game promos and deposit bonuses for its users. Plus, new users are still eligible for a bet match when they first sign up.

Deposit Bonus Of Up To $500

All new and returning DraftKings Sportsbook players can earn a 50% deposit match up to a $1,000 deposit, which can come out to a max of up to $500 in bonus money.

There’s a good deal of fine print for this promo, and you can read a full breakdown of it here.

No-Brainer Odds Boost

With the return of football season finally here, DraftKings is running the No-Brainer Odds Boost . For this, they are boosting the odds of either the Jets, Eagles, or Giants to score a touchdown in Week 1 to +100. The max wager is $10, and it expires September 8th.

This seems like an unbelievable deal to bet $10 on the Eagles to score a touchdown against the Redskins (lol) and get $10.

Death, Taxes, Bama, and Clemson

College football finally returns this Saturday with Miami taking on Florida along with Arizona paying a visit to Hawaii. Alabama and Clemson are looking like sure locks to make the college football playoffs once again, and DraftKings certainly believes this with their Death, Taxes, Bama, and Clemson promo.

With two other playoff spots up for grabs, if you bet $10 for any other team to make the playoffs, DraftKings Sportsbook will give you a $10 free bet for Week 1 of the college football season. This offer will expire August 24th.

Reminder: Free Bet Signup Bonus

As always, new users can earn a $500 first bet match when they first sign up with DraftKings Sportsbook.

PointsBet NJ Is Running a Slew of NFL Preseason Promos

Joe DiProsperos - August 19, 2019

With the NFL preseason in full swing, our friends over at PointsBet have rolled out a bunch of promos for those of you in New Jersey on the next few weeks of game action. They have early payouts and even non-juice spread bets. And then there’s their industry-best signup bonus.

First TD Early Payout

The crux of this one is pretty simple. For pregame moneyline bets only, if your team scores the first touchdown of the game, you automatically win. The first $50 is staked.

This promo will run for select preseason games:

  • August 19th – 49ers v. Broncos
  • August 22nd – Giants v. Bengals, Ravens v. Eagles, Jaguars v. Dolphins
  • August 29th – Eagles v. Jets, Ravens v. Redskins, Giants v. Patriots, Chiefs v. Packers

PointsBet is notorious for running these early payout offers, but this one is even more aggressive than normal– potentially settling early in the game. It’s a great way to bring in players before the sports betting onslaught in early September.

Start With A Field Goal

For any pregame spread bets, if the bet loses but the spread misses by 3 or less, you get your money back in a bonus of up to $50 with the first $50 being staked.

This will also run for select preseason games:

  • August 23rd – Bills v. Lions, Browns v. Buccaneers

No Juice Spreads

There will be no juice for +100 spreads with max bets of up to $100 for a few select preseason games at PointsBet NJ. For those who may not know, the “juice” is the commission a sports book makes for taking a bet. So essentially, for this promo, even if you lose a bet, you don’t have to worry about any more money coming out of your wallet.

Here are the games this will be available for:

  • August 24th – Saints v. Jets, 49ers v. Chiefs

Reminder: Don’t Forget This Exclusive Promo Code

William Hill NJ Betting Update: New Platform Launch, MLB Specials

Joe DiProsperos - August 19, 2019

With the fall betting season quickly approaching, William Hill NJ has put out a few updates to their online platform, and an intriguing MLB promotion that will be running through the conclusion of regular season action.

New Platform Launch

William Hill rolled out their new platform in New Jersey last week. The interface is greatly improved and there is now a focus on prop bets and in-game bets, which was something that was lacking in their previous version.

The general look and feel is the same, but a touch more modern… with more variety.

You can read more on the launch here.

Diamond Live Promo

William Hill is currently pushing their Diamond Live Promo. Running through the rest of the current MLB season, you can earn a $10 bonus for the first $100 of live baseball bets you place every week. No matter the outcome, you will receive that $10 bonus at the beginning of the following week.

Bet $50, Get $50

As a reminder, new William Hill NJ players are eligible for the Bet $50, Get $50 bonus promo. Essentially, when you first sign up, if you place a $50 bet on any sporting event, you can earn $50 in free bets from William Hill regardless of the outcome of the event. The bonus is applied to your account within 14 days.

You can claim that here .

Joe DiProsperos - July 31, 2019

July 31 Local Team Odds

San Francisco Giants v. Philadelphia Phillies

Money Line: SFG (+120) | PHI (-138)

Total Runs: 9.5 – Over (-108) | Under (-112)

FanDuel Sportsbook is changing the PA betting market, offering a TON of markets on MLB games. It adds significant variety to what you can bet on. Here are a few notable markets for tonight.

Notable Props

Vince Velasquez Strikes Out Over 5.5 Batters (-122)

Velasquez has for the most part been hit or miss this season, but he put together a solid outing against the Tigers last week. He pitches 5.2 scoreless innings and struck out 9 batters in a 4-0 win. He’s struck out 5 or more batters in 4 of his last 5 appearances, and given the fact the Giants have struck out the 7th-most times in the National League this season, Velasquez could log his fair share of strikeouts.

Giants Score Under 4.5 Runs (-122)

Getting guys across the plate has been a tough task for the Giants this season. They have managed to score 4 or more runs just once in their last 5 games, and they’re 27th in the league in runs scored this season. Yet, despite those struggles, they still find themselves just 2.5 games out of wild card spot in the NL.

 

Daily Odds Boosts

There are FanDuel’s daily boosts, available for a limited time on current and future events. There’s a significant Steelers boost.

Hall of Fame Game

In the first preseason game of 2019, the Denver Broncos will take on the Atlanta Falcons in the Hall of Fame Game tomorrow night. FanDuel Sportsbook PA is offering a boost on the odds that the Broncos win while over 33.5 total points are scored. Those +210 odds (max bet of $100) have been raised to +250.

Steelers to Beat Patriots in Week 1

The Steelers’ odds of taking down Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 1 have been upped from +215 (max bet of $50) to +500.

76ers to Win 2019-20 NBA Title

The 76ers odds to win the NBA title next season have been boosted from +900 (max bet of $50) to +1800.

Weekly Odds Boosts

Football is Back!

On Thursday, to coincide with the Atlanta Falcons taking on the Denver Broncos in the Hall of Fame game, DraftKings Sportsbook will offer a city parlay on the Atlanta Braves and Falcons to both win.

Star Studded Friday

A bunch of odds boosts are on the slate for Friday for some notable baseball and soccer stars.

First, there will be a boost on Stephen Strasburg to record 10+ strikeouts and his Nationals to win against the Diamondbacks.

Bryce Harper’s odds to log 3+ RBIs against the White Sox will also be a featured bet as well.

Plus, with another Yankees-Red Sox series on the horizon, there will be an odds boost on the Yankees to score first and win.

Additionally, there will be boosts for the Borussia Dortmund – Bayern Munich Supercup match to be played on Saturday. They include Robert Lewandowski to score first and Bayern to win, in addition to Marco Reus to score first and Dortmund to win.

Dog Days of August

With the pennant race heating up, there will be plenty of odds boosts this weekend.

There will be boosts for Freddie Freeman to go yard in a Braves win and Pete Alonso to record 2+ RBIs in a Mets win as well.

Boosts will also be offered for the Liverpool – Manchester United match on Sunday, namely for the odds that Liverpool and Man City each score 2+ goals in the match.

MLB Madness

The Yankees and Red Sox are set to square off this weekend in the Bronx. Given that both teams boast extremely potent offenses, there will be an odds boost on 6+ total HRs to be hit in the game.

Additional boosts featuring head-to-head match ups include:

  • Domingo German to record more strikeouts than David Price.
  • Aaron Judge and Luke Voit to record more RBI’s than Mookie Betts and Rafael Devers.

 

Super Bowl MVP Odds

DraftKings also released some very early Super Bowl 54 MVP odds:

DraftKings Sportsbook Is Offering An MLB / NFL Combo Promo

Joe DiProsperos - July 30, 2019

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.

Joe DiProsperos - July 15, 2019

The 148th edition of the British Open is set to tee-off Thursday at Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland. Last year’s champion Francesco Molinari will look to defend his title against a, per usual, loaded field of players.

Bettors in Pennsylvania can now get in on the action with PA online sports betting with a $250 deposit match at SugarHouse .

Favorites to win Open Championship at SugarHouse Sportsbook

1. Rory McIlroy (+900)

The winner of the 2014 iteration of the British Open, McIlroy is SugarHouse’s favorite this time around. He won the Players Championship back in March and also won the Canadian Open last month. He’s finished in the top-10 in 10 of his 13 PGA Tour appearances this season, so he’s certainly in a good position to make some noise this time around.

2. Brooks Koepka (+1000)

Koepka has performed WELL in the three majors to be played so far this season. He won the PGA Championship back in May and was the runner-up in the Masters and U.S. Open. Like always, he’ll be a popular bet – currently receiving upwards of 20% of the handle at DraftKing Sportsbook – and based on his past performances, he just might make a run at this one.

3. Jon Rahm (+1400)

Despite missing the cut in two of the last three tournaments he’s participated in (including the PGA Championship), Rahm has had a strong showing of late. After winning the Zurich Classic of New Orelans, he finished third in the US Open behind Brooks Koepka and champion Gary Woodland. Rahm will be looking for his first major championship.

4. Dustin Johnson (+1600)

Johnson will look to rebound from a rough stretch of tournaments of late. After finishing in the top 10 in 8 of 11 appearances, he finished 35th at the US Open and missed the cut at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Still, he was the runner-up at the Masters and the PGA Championship this season and won WGC-Mexico Championship in February. He’ll be looking for his 2nd major title after winning the US Open in 2016.

5. Tiger Woods (+1800)

Tiger will be looking to continue his resurgent string of success this weekend. His memorable win at the Masters is by far the best moment of this PGA Tour season. After missing the cut at the PGA Championship, he placed 9th at the Memorial Tournament, and then finished 21st at the US Open. Tiger will look to claim his 4th British Open victory, having last won it in 2006. It would also be his 16th major win, two more behind Jack Nicklaus for the most major championships in PGA Tour history.

SugarHouse will also be taking bets on group winnners for the tournament:
