Christmas is just a little more than a week away, so if you still haven’t gotten in on New Jersey’s legal sports betting action, now seems like the right time give yourself the gift of great promos and generous signup bonuses being offered by the best betting apps.  And who knows, maybe you’ll make a little extra spending money to finish up your holiday shopping, or, you know, pay for a round at the bar.

BetStars NJ

We like BetStars NJ because of its straightforward interface and variety of fun and useful promos. They’ve also recently approved the signup experience, so for those of you who had trouble early on, we suggest giving them another shot as the whole process is easier now.

If you haven’t already done so, there’s never been a better time to open account with BetStars NJ. It’s the season of giving and to get in the spirit, BetStars is offering users that sign up between now and Monday a $50 free bet with no deposit and up to $500 in free bets thereafter (with some caveats). They’ve been running this offer occasionally throughout the football season, so while it’s not entirely time sensitive, there’s no guarantee as to how much longer they will use it. Continue Reading

DraftKings Sportsbook Promo Code: DraftKings Is Offering a $500 Free Bet

Kyle Scott - December 11, 2018

DraftKings Sportsbook has been live in New Jersey for over three full months now and a lot has changed since launch, including promos and bonuses. Here is the current best DraftKings Sportsbook promo code and full review.

The season of giving is upon us and our partners at DraftKings Sportsbook are spreading the holiday cheer between now and the end of the month by increasing their $200 free bet offer, which they’ve been running pretty much open-ended since their launch on August 6.

To match some of the offers put forth by competitors, DraftKings Sportsbook is now offering a $500 free bet.

Bonus: first bet matched up to $500

Minimum Deposit: $5

States available: New Jersey

If you or someone you know has a gambling problem and wants help, call 1-800 GAMBLER.

21+. NJ only. Eligibility restrictions apply. See website for details.

Here’s how it works—just use our link to sign up and DraftKings will match your first wager with a free bet up to $500. It works the same way as the previous $200 bet, only, you know, more. Use your matched free bet within 30 days of making your first wager, and you’re good to go. It’s that simple.

Once you’re signed up, be sure to take advantage of all that DraftKings Sportsbook has to offer. There are plenty of deposit options. You can make traditional pre-game wagers, bet live in-game, and bet on the lookout for DraftKings Sportsbook’s Odds Boosts on player props and game bets. Want to bet small to win big? Get in on its various NBA, NHL, and NFL pool-style pick’em and ATS contests for sizable cash prizes.

Speaking of betting small to win big, one DraftKings user last week hit a 12-leg parlay, turning $5 into $11,800. Another user picked the correct first period score in 3 NHL games at +1,794 odds to turn $0.20 into $358. And another player used DraftKings’ cash out feature on a 6-leg parlay bet utilizing NBA money lines. After hammering 5 of the bets on his $5 parlay, they cashed out for $1,006. A fairly decent return.

The full review of DraftKings Sportsbook is after the jump, but we thought it was worth calling out the rather sizable bump in deposit bonus they’re now offering to players in New Jersey. Continue Reading

FanDuel is absolutely bringing the heat this season with generous holiday promotions. As always, new users get a $500 risk-free first bet.

Here’s how it works: new users will get a site credit worth up to $500 if they lose their first bet. Losses are refunded into accounts within 72 hours. Quite literally, FanDuel is giving users a no-risk, can’t-lose opportunity just for signing up.

As football fans know, NFL games are often a tale of two much different halves. It’s always a tough pill to swallow when a bet that looks good early goes bad late. Take some of the sting out of the heartbreak with NFL Halftime Insurance. Just place a moneyline wager on any NFL team this weekend, and if your bet is winning at halftime but goes on to lose late, you will receive a refund in site credit of up to $25.

Similarly, pro basketball bettors can take advantage of FanDuel’s NBA OT Insurance. Don’t fall victim to excruciating overtime losses. Bet the moneyline on any NBA game, and if your bet loses, get up to $25 of your wager back in site credit.

If you’re looking to hit a bigger payout and want to try your hand at a parlay, then FanDuel’s December Football Parlay Insurance and December Basketball Parlay Insurance are for you. Place a four-leg football or basketball parlay. If three legs of your wager hit, but one is a  dud, FanDuel will refund your parlay in site credit up to $25.

DraftKings Sportsbook

There are plenty of fun and unique promos to take advantage of this weekend with DraftKings Sportsbook.

On Sunday, Philadelphia’s season is on the line when the Birds look to avenge their 27-20 Week 10 loss to Dallas. A lot has changed since that first meeting. The defending Super Bowl champs now find themselves on the ropes in a must-win spot, reprising the familiar role of the underdog.  While the stakes couldn’t seemingly be any higher in this pivotal division showdown between bitter rivals, our partners at DraftKings Sportsbook are upping the ante with a 3x Profit Boost for those who sign up by using our link and bet on the Birds to take down Dallas.

Your Complete Eagles and Cowboys Betting Preview

BWanksCB - December 7, 2018

The NFC playoff picture is a hot mess, but for the Eagles, things are pretty simple. Beat the Cowboys, move into first-place atop the NFC East, and live to fight for a division championship down the stretch. Lose and it’s over. Yeah, the Eagles wouldn’t be mathematically eliminated with a second loss to Dallas in five weeks, but they would need to run the table against a brutal schedule, while the Cowboys would need to lose all three of their remaining games. It’s hard to imagine either of those scenarios playing out, and the numbers back it up.

According to the New York Times Playoff Simulator, the Eagles’ odds of winning the division increase from approximately 19% to 44% with a win. Those odds drop to 1% with a loss– so it’s essentially a must-win spot for Philly as it reprises the familiar underdog role that fueled its Super Bowl run a season ago. Can they get in done in Dallas? Let’s take a look.

The action

The Eagles opened almost across the board as a 4-point underdog, but some sharp action kicked them to 3.5 earlier this week. The public likes the favorite, with 62% of the point-spread tickets backing the Cowboys. The money, however, backs the Birds, with 52% of the money on the underdog. That suggests the big money bettors like the Eagles right now.

Bonus: First deposit matched up to $250

So where’s the value? As of this morning, those looking to take the Eagles against the spread should head to SugarHouseSportsbook or DraftKings Sportsbook and grab them at +3.5 (-114). Those that like the Cowboys can get them for the optimal price at FanDuel Sportsbook at -3.5 (+105). Moneyline bettors that want to take a shot on the Eagles can get them for the best value at BetStars for +155. In terms of the total, it’s set at 44 and -110 on both the over and under.

Of course, if you’re a new user and like the Eagles outright, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering new users a 3x Profit Boost on winning bets backing the Eagles (exclusive, use this link to get that offer).

Your Complete Eagles and Redskins Betting Guide

BWanksCB - December 3, 2018

Just how important is tonight’s game for the Eagles as they try to keep their fading playoff hopes alive? According to PlayoffStatus.com, a loss to the Redskins on Monday Night Football would drop their odds of reaching the postseason under 1%. A win, however, would keep the Eagles afloat for at least one more week ahead of their rematch with the Cowboys. The playoff outlook is not as mathematically dire for the 6-5 Redskins, but after a season-ending leg injury to quarterback Alex Smith and two-straight losses, Washington needs a win to keep up with Dallas in the division race.

The action

As of the early afternoon, the Eagles are a 6-point favorite at most sportsbooks. The public likes the underdog Redskins, with only 40% of point-spread bettors backing the Eagles, but 51% of the money is on Philly. That’s up from 46% of the money at 10 a.m. today, so some sharp money has flowed in on the Eagles over the past few hours. In terms of the total, 57% of tickets and 72% of the money is on the over.

Need to Know Betting Info for Saints-Cowboys

BWanksCB - November 29, 2018

It will be a battle for NFC SUPREMACY when the first-place Cowboys (I hate everything) and Saints kick off tonight in Dallas. Eh, supremacy is probably an oversell on the Cowboys, but this game carries significant playoff implications for both teams as New Orleans tries to strengthen its grip on the conference’s top seed, while Dallas looks to further distance itself from Philadelphia and Washington in a weak NFC East. They can do so by knocking off what appears to be the NFL’s most dangerous team.

Eagles fans will be locked in on this one, rooting hard for a Dallas loss that would open the door for a three-way tie atop the division should the Eagles beat the Redskins at home on Monday night. While that subplot alone creates plenty of intrigue, this much-hyped prime time game featuring two public betting darlings figures to draw a ton of action, so let’s take a look at some need-to-know information ahead of it.

The matchup

Here’s a quick trivia question: Can you name the NFL teams that have covered 10 consecutive games against the spread dating back to 2003? You can’t—because there are none. Only two teams since that season have covered nine in a row, and both teams failed to cover its next game. The Saints, a squad that has bulldozed opponents and the bank accounts of those bold enough to bet against them since Week 3, will attempt tonight to breakthrough and extend their ATS streak to double-digits.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys find themselves in unfamiliar territory as a 7-point home underdog. The last time Dallas was a touchdown or more underdog at home came back in Week 8 of the 2015 season when they hosted the Patriots. That one didn’t go so well for the home team, as the Cowboys were steamrolled in a 30-6 loss. In fact, this spot has historically been unkind to Dallas. The last four times the Cowboys were an underdog of seven or more at home they lost the game outright.

If Dallas is to reverse that trend, its defense, which is allowing a stingy 19.4 points per game, will need to slow down a Saints offense that has eclipsed 40 points on six different occasions and 30 points nine times through 11 games, so they’ll have a tall order in front of them tonight. Despite its stellar overall play, the Cowboys defense has allowed opposing offenses to complete 44% of third down conversions (29th in the league), while opposing quarterbacks have completed 69.1% of their pass attempts (28th). That’s a recipe for disaster against a Saints offense that is converting 47% of their third down opportunities (6th) and completing a league-best 76% of their pass attempts. Just how good has this team been? Relatively speaking, the Falcons did a respectable job keeping the Saints in check on Thanksgiving night…and still surrendered 31 points and, frankly, were never really in the game. Continue Reading

The Eagles Have Been a Bad Bet This Season

BWanksCB - November 27, 2018

If you think rooting for the Eagles has been brutal, try putting money on them, which is something that many a foolish man has done this season.

According to data released by DraftKings Sportsbook yesterday morning, the Eagles have been the fourth-most heavily wagered team against the spread, and, well, that’s been a bad bet. Favored in all but one game to this point, the defending Super Bowl champs are currently tied with the likes of the Falcons, Raiders, Jets, and 49ers for the NFL’s worst record against the spread at 3-8, and those that have backed them are lighter in the pocket for it.

Because I derive great pleasure from pain, I thought maybe we could relive some of the misery, of which there has been plenty of.
