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meaning you will need to bet the winnings within a week of receiving them before the money is eligible to be withdrawn.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!
