FOX Bet Is Offering the Sixers at Insane Odds Tonight

Bob Wankel - March 11, 2020

In the spirit of March Madness, FOX Bet has been offering some pretty wild college basketball promos for new users in Pennsylvania and New Jersey this month, but now it appears the craziness is extending to the NBA. 

Just how crazy are we talking here?

Note: After FOX Bet offered to double the money of users who bet on the Sixers to score at least 76 points against the Pistons tonight, FOX Bet is now delivering a second wild promo. You can now grab the Sixers to win the game outright over the Pistons at +100 odds. Currently, the Sixers are a 12-point favorite and -1200 on the moneyline, so this offer presents insane value. What’s more, users who locked in the earlier promotion are also free to play this one, too.

Grab the Sixers to win outright at boosted +100 odds by clicking here .

This wild Sixers odds boost is available to all users, but new users can grab this offer along with FOX Bet’s $20 sign up bonus and first-deposit match of up to $100.

FOX Bet’s Double Your Money Sixers Promo

Update: Below is the previous offer. Now you can get the Sixers boosted from -1100 moneyline odds to +100.

FOX Bet is helping bettors build their bank rolls ahead of a packed slate of college basketball tournament action with this stellar NBA promo on the Sixers to score at least 76 points.

Both new and current players can lock in this super boost to double their money on bets up to $25.

This offer from FOX Bet is similar to previous Philly-based deals that we saw during the 2019 NFL season. During Week 4, FOX Bet offered its players $25 on Carson Wentz to throw a touchdown pass against the Green Bay Packers. Wentz entered that game having thrown for at least one touchdown in 26 of his previous 27 games. He would go on to toss three scores that night and score bettors an easy $25.

While his odds to throw a TD were good, the Sixers’ odds to score at least 76 points are better. Forget the NBA-best 28-2 home record this season. Forget that they are averaging 109.4 points per game this season. You can even forget that the Sixers haven’t scored less than 89 points in any game this season. Indeed, all you need to know is that the Sixers have scored at least 76 points in 330 consecutive games.

The last time the Sixers failed to reach the 76-point mark came back in game two of the forgettable 2016-2017 season in a 104-72 loss to the Hawks. Philly’s starting five in that game, which saw the Sixers shoot 25 of 80 from the floor, included the likes of Gerald Henderson and Sergio Rodriguez.

Seems like forever ago–but it has actually been just 1,229 days.

How to Bet on the Sixers at +100 Odds With FOX Bet

This promo is available to new and current FOX Bet players who are located in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Before grabbing the Sixers to score at least 76 points, users must first download the FOX Bet app, which you can do by clicking right here .

After signing up, new users are immediately credited with $20. You need not make a deposit in order to grab the bonus cash, but in order to take advantage of FOX Bet’s $100 first deposit match and get the most value out of this aggressive super boost, an initial deposit will need to be made. While users can deposit as little as $10, more aggressive deposits will net a larger deposit match bonus.

This super boost will be available on the app’s home page. You can simply click the banner art to opt-in, or scroll down to the bet boost menu and select the Sixers to win at +100 odds.

DraftKings Sportsbook Is Running a Free March Mania Survivor Pool

Kyle Scott - March 10, 2020

DraftKings Sportsbook is running a March Mania Survivor Pool. It is free and available to players in all states. Winners will share from a $250,000 prize pool.

Here’s how to sign up.

Click this link to register for free with DraftKings to participate in their March madness survival pool.

 

How To Play DraftKings Survivor Pool

This is sort of a brilliant contest from DraftKings.

Each NCAA Tournament game day through the Elite Eight, you will pick one team to advance. If your team wins, you keep going.

Starting with the Elite Eight, you’ll be able to pick one team per round.

Sounds easy enough, right?

Not so fast.

As with most survivor pools, you can only pick each team once. So while it may seem like a no-brainer to take a team like Kentucky or Villanova in the first round, know that you won’t be able to use them later in the tournament.

This will force you to select lower seeds early on and save the favorites toward the end.

If you find yourself in a situation in, say, the Final Four where you run out of teams to pick, well then your run is over in DraftKings’ survivor pool. Continue Reading

FOX Bet’s Early March Madness Special Gives New Users $220 in Free Cash

Bob Wankel - March 6, 2020

Selection Sunday is still more than a week away, but FOX Bet is getting an early jump on March Madness with an insane offer for new users located in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Sign up for FOX Bet in Pennsylvania here and in New Jersey here .

New players at FOX Bet get $20 free on signup with no deposit and then can grab up to $100 in free bets when they wager $25 on any college basketball game from March 6 through March 8. Win or lose, it doesn’t matter–bettors will grab an extra $100 in cash simply by placing their first bet on a college basketball game.

This offer comes in addition to FOX Bet’s standard $20 deposit-free sign up bonus and up to $100 first deposit match.

Let’s do some quick math here:

$20 sign up bonus + $100 deposit match + $100 college basketball bonus = $220 in free bets

And that amount doesn’t even include the potential return of a winning wager.

Absolute madness.

Sixers-Kings Betting Preview: (March 5, 2020)

Russ Joy - March 5, 2020

On Thursday night, the Sixers are on the road taking on the Sacramento Kings. At 37-25 the Sixers find themselves in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, three full games out of the fourth seed and homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs. While the Kings are technically just 3.5 games out of a playoff spot at 27-34, one has to assume they’ll be leapfrogged shortly by the surging Zion Williamson-led New Orleans Pelicans.

With that, let’s get into our Sixers-Kings betting preview.

FanDuel Sportsbook Will Begin Streaming NHL Games In Its App

Bob Wankel - March 2, 2020

In case you have any remaining doubt regarding the longterm sustainability of the budding relationship between the legal sports betting market and professional sports leagues, today’s news from FanDuel Sportsbook and the NHL should just about eliminate it.

As part of a new partnership with IMG Arena, the popular online legal sportsbook will stream up to two regular season games daily via its app in states where online sports betting is legal. Among those states are Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Indiana. Bettors who carry an account balance or have action on the game will be able to follow along live.

You can sign up with FanDuel Sportsbook and grab a $500 risk-free bet by clicking here .

Deals between pro leagues and sportsbooks aren’t a new development. Three leagues (MLB, NHL, NBA) have official gaming partnerships with MGM Resorts, while the NHL (FanDuel, William Hill) and NBA (FOX Bet, FanDuel) also have additional partnerships.

The NFL has a DFS partner in DraftKings Sportsbook, a casino deal with Caesars, and a betting data deal with Sportradar, which allows for the distribution of the league’s data to legal sportsbook operators.

The news that FanDuel will be streaming NHL games, however, marks the first time bettors will be able to consume game action, statistics, data, and betting odds all in the same place. Continue Reading
