FanDuel Sportsbook Is Offering The Sixers at 76-1 Odds To Win The NBA Championship

Kyle Scott - October 21, 2019

FanDuel Sportsbook is offering the Sixers at 76 to 1 odds to win the NBA Championship.

You read that right. FanDuel, which hasn’t been as promotional as some of its competitors, perhaps because it is obliterating the online sports betting market in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, is coming on strong with their promo offer to get +7600 odds on Philly to win it all.

To put this in perspective, the Sixers are currently listed at FanDuel at +750. This is a 10x odds boost.

How It Works

The offer is available to new FanDuel Sportsbook customers only.

If you sign up using this link and enter promo code PROCESS (have to do both), you can place a bet of up to $10 on the Sixers to win the NBA Championship at +7600 odds. If they win, that would payout $760.

The bonus would be paid as a site credit and come with a play-through requirement, meaning you will need to bet the winnings within a week of receiving them before the money is eligible to be withdrawn.

So this isn’t exactly free money. But play-through requirements like this are the norm, and a 76-1 odds boost on a favorite is a pretty strong offer.

 

Sixers Betting Promos

FanDuel Sportsbook may have beat a Sixers partner at their own game.

Earlier this month, the Sixers entered into a partnership with Parx Sportsbook to offer $25 in site credit for each Sixers win. Not a bad deal, but given the superiority of the FanDuel Sportsbook app in PA and in generating buzz, this boost will likely attract much more attention.

Sportsbooks in Pennsylvania are eager to sign up new players, especially heading into a new season. It looks like the Sixers will be the team in Philly for a little while, and getting customers to sign up early in the season gives FanDuel Sportsbook a chance of being their sportsbook of choice throughout the winter.

Some other things to nibble on? The Sixers to win the conference at +220 and Joel Embiid to win defensive player of the year at +750. That sounds like positive EV to me. At least the 76-1 Sixers odds boost is. Here they come!

Eagles vs. Cowboys Predictions: Odds and Picks for Sunday Night Football

Bob Wankel - October 20, 2019

The Eagles and Cowboys will cap off the seventh Sunday of the NFL season in primetime tonight when the two teams meet at AT&T Field with first-place on the line in the NFC East. This showdown between bitter rivals figures to be one of the most heavily bet games of the day, particularly at PA online sportsbooks, which are offering tons of great promos and bet boosts for this one. We’ll take a look at those deals, the current odds, as well as some picks and predictions in this Eagles vs. Cowboys betting preview.

If recent history serves as any indication of what’s about to go down tonight, then we should be in for quite a treat. Three of the last four meetings between the Eagles and Cowboys played in Arlington have been decided in overtime, and with the Cowboys a short favorite ahead of this one, yet another tight contest is expected by experts and oddsmakers alike.

Dallas enters having lost three straight games after beating up on the JV portion of its schedule for three weeks to open its season. The Cowboys have been plagued by injuries and missed opportunities in recent weeks, but appear to be getting healthier just in time for this pivotal showdown. The same could be said of an underachieving Eagles team that has been decimated by injuries to key players while also letting potential wins, quite literally, slip through their fingers against both Atlanta and Detroit. For as much adversity as each of these two squads have faced in the early going, the winner tonight can wash away some of the frustration and find itself atop the division standings as we near the season’s midway point.

FOX Bet Is Offering Another Crazy Eagles Odds Boost This Week

Bob Wankel - October 19, 2019

FOX Bet is at it again with its latest Godfather offer for bettors Pennsylvaniaand New Jersey, giving users the ability to grab the Eagles at +7 points over the Cowboys on Sunday night at even odds.

Since launching in both states back in early September, FOX Bet PA has emerged as our favorite option in the PA online sportsbook market because it has excelled at creating aggressive odds boosts and imaginative promotional offers for both new and current customers. You may recall that they offered even odds on Carson Wentz to throw a touchdown pass against the Packers back in Week 4, something he had done in 26 of his previous 27 games.

FOX Bet Eagles Boost

This time around, FOX Bet is offering the Eagles at +7 with no vig over the Dallas Cowboys, providing bettors who are looking to back the Eagles with insane value. The max bet is $25.

Typically, it would cost roughly -230 to grab an alternate spread on a team at +7 when its standard market price is +2.5.

Players who sign up here  can grab $20 free with no deposit required, and their first deposit matched up to $100. If the Eagles cover the inflated spread with a $25 bet, a new user would walk away with $145 in bonuses. Not a bad deal.

 

Strong Value

FiveThirtyEight’s ELO projection has the Cowboys at only -1.5 with a 55% chance to win the game, meaning that between the discrepancy in the line and the added value FOX Bet is offering, bettors are being spotted an extra 5.5 points.

Moreover, recent history between these two NFC East rivals suggests that we could be in store for yet another close game. Continue Reading

Penn State vs. Michigan Predictions: Odds and Picks for a Top 25 Primetime Clash

Bob Wankel - October 19, 2019

The money should be coming in strong at PA online sportsbooks ahead of tonight’s nationally televised primetime tilt between Michigan and Penn State. Can the oft-criticized Wolverines silence the doubters with what would be a key upset road win (or at least cover the spread), or will Penn State keep its perfect season alive and perhaps grab yet another cover in the process? Let’s run through the best odds, promo offers, and top odds boosts before pivoting to some picks and predictions in our full Penn State vs. Michigan betting preview.

My guess is that if you’re a fan of either Penn State or Michigan, you have probably heard this week that Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has been absolutely B.R.U.T.A.L. against Top 25 opponents since taking over at his alma mater prior to the 2015 season.

Harbaugh was supposed to wash away the disappointment of the Rich Rodriguez and Brady Hoke eras, while restoring Michigan to its place among college football’s elite programs. That hasn’t happened to this point as the Wolverines prepare for No. 7 Penn State with an almost unthinkable 1-9 record against Top 10 teams under Harbaugh. They will need to reverse that trend starting tonight in order to stay alive in the Big Ten East race and ultimately have a chance to meet the considerable expectations that were placed upon them prior to the season.

The Penn State defense is second in the country in sacks, has allowed only five touchdowns in 82 drives, and has limited Big Ten opponents to 1.2 yards per carry over its first three conference games. Despite owning a 3-1 record head-up against Penn State since Harbaugh took over, Michigan is up against it tonight as a big underdog in what will be an electric atmosphere at Beaver Stadium. Keep in mind this will be a “White Out” game.

It’s worth noting that Penn State obliterated Michigan two years ago, 42-13, the last time these two teams played in one of these “White Out” games.

Premier League Betting Guide Week 9

Philip Keidel - October 18, 2019

Another international break is over, and if you support the United States Men’s National Team, the break didn’t end fast enough. The Americans lost to Canada 2-0 on Tuesday, and truth be told they could have lost by four or five.

Spare a thought for Christian Pulisic. Eighteen months ago, he was a rising star at Borussia Dortmund and the face of the next wave of great American players. Today, he’s a guy who cannot get regular minutes at Chelsea and was substituted on Tuesday night with his team level after 60 minutes because his national team manager thought Paul Arriola was a better bet to help the Americans score a goal. Life comes at you fast.

You have probably already spent the money we won two weeks ago with two more winners out of three. Do I prefer perfect weeks? I do. Would I take two winners from three picks every week from here through the end of the season? Yes, yes I would.

Onto this week’s winners. All odds courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook PA, where new users can take advantage of their $500 risk-free bet .

If you’re in Pennsylvania, check out our PA online sports betting page, which has a plethora of promos being offered from the best sportsbooks available. Don’t worry if you’re in New Jersey. We’ve got you covered with our NJ online sports betting page.

 

MANCHESTER UNITED (+420) v. LIVERPOOL (-145) — DRAW (+280)

It’s unfathomable that anyone at Manchester United could honestly believe that this is a good time for the Red Devils to host Liverpool. A quick look at the table shows Liverpool on top with 24 points, unblemished in eight league matches. United, conversely, is all of the following: a. 15 points behind Liverpool; b. in 12th place; and c. tied on 9 points with newly-promoted Sheffield United and perennial relegation scrappers Brighton and Hove Albion. United isn’t a very good match for anyone these days, much less Liverpool.

Chiefs vs. Broncos Predictions: Odds and Picks for Thursday Night Football

Bob Wankel - October 17, 2019

It’s about that time again. Thursday night is here, Week 7 of the NFL regular season is upon us, and it’s time to see if we can start off a big weekend of football betting across PA online sportsbooks with a win in our Chiefs vs. Broncos betting preview.

I believe in Andy Reid.

Fatal last words if uttered in January, I know, but if said during the regular season throughout Big Red’s 21-year head coaching career, that belief has been rewarded more often than not.

It’s okay. I know you’re scared, but say it with me…I believe in Andy Reid…I believe in Andy (gulp) Reid.

To ease your concern, Reid has won 10 or more games a remarkable 13 times throughout his first 20 seasons, accumulating a .612 winning-percentage in the process. That doesn’t just happen by accident.

The Chiefs looked poised to coast past the double-digit win mark once again this season after getting out to a perfect 4-0 September start behind early-season MVP candidate Patrick Mahomes, but have uncharacteristically sputtered in back-to-back October losses at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Broncos, meanwhile, struggled through a winless first month before rebounding on the strength of a suffocating defense that has allowed a total of only 13 points combined in back-to-back wins, setting up a crucial AFC West clash tonight in Denver.

You know already know who I’ve got in this one because I believe in Andy Reid, baby, and I’ve got plenty of reasons why, so let’s get into it.
