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 .

William Hill NJ Relaunches With All New Platform

Kyle Scott - August 16, 2019

william hill promo code

William Hill NJ will rolled out its all new online sports betting platform in New Jersey this week.

One of the first out of the gate for legal sports betting in New Jersey and elsewhere, William Hill is a well-known brand, particularly in Nevada and in the United Kingdom. While they’ve done well for themselves in the first year of legalized betting in the United States, their online component has lagged behind DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook in terms of both revenue and general usability. They were one of the first to offer a site and app, which functions better than some of the casino-branded offerings, but it had looked and felt a bit stale compared to the competition.

The relaunch may change that.

 

Props and in-game betting at the new William Hill

There is a renewed focus on prop bets and in-game betting. William Hill’s previous iteration did not feature many props, which have proven to be popular with more casual online betters. Additionally, some estimates say live or in-game betting makes up nearly 50% of the market in New Jersey so far.

William Hill’s new app will focus heavily on the ability to bet while a game is going on. Combined with their popular brand name and recognition and the new platform, William Hill will look to compete with DraftKings and FanDuel this fall, once football season starts.

 

Marketing

They’ll also have a renewed focus on digital marketing. They have struck a partnership with Income Access, a popular payment and reporting provider for partners to promote their online brand. There will undoubtedly be other marketing campaigns and plenty of commercials and digital advertising.

Look for William Hill to focus on rejuvenating their brand, making it younger and offering a new, upgraded user experience.

New users who bet $50 can get $50 when they sign up for the new app right here .

How to Bet on Eagles-Jaguars at PA Online Sportsbooks

Bob Wankel - August 15, 2019

Eagles. Jaguars. Wentz. Foles.

So much drama. Almost too much drama.

Okay, maybe not.

Neither Foles or Wentz is expected to play in tonight’s preseason game, so those of you thirsting for some meaningful football might be left feeling a bit unfulfilled once again this week. But I do have some good news. You can make what will otherwise probably be a pretty lackluster affair a little bit more interesting now that PA online sports betting is up and running.

We all know that betting on preseason football is difficult for a multitude of reasons. Namely, it’s virtually impossible to know what each coach is trying to accomplish. We also have no idea which starters will play or how long they will play, and yet, it is still football. And you can still bet on it.

Given this fundamental truth, let’s run through how to legally wager on Eagles-Jaguars as well as what each of Pennsylvania’s legal online sportsbooks have to offer.

Before placing your bets, you should read our piece on 10 things to watch for in tonight’s game.

SugarHouse Sportsbook

Here are the current Eagles-Jaguars odds at SugarHouse Sportsbook:

Spread Money Total
Eagles +3 (-110) +130 O 34.5 (-103)
Jaguars -3 (-110) -157 U 34.5 (-120)

SugarHouse Sportsbook is offering a $250 deposit match .

One other important thing to know: SugarHouse is also offering a massive NFL pick’em contest with over $500,000 in prizes, including $125,000 to the overall winner.

Players will pick the winners of all Sunday and Monday NFL games throughout the season. It’s $150 to sign up.

FanDuel Sportsbook

Here are the current Eagles-Jaguars odds at FanDuel Sportsbook PA:

Spread Money Total
Eagles +3 (-110) +130 O 34.5 (-103)
Jaguars -3 (-110) -157 U 34.5 (-120)

FanDuel Sportsbook is offering a $500 risk-free bet for new users.

Eagles-Jaguars Trends

If you believe in trends, then here are a few things to know ahead of this game:

Philadelphia is 8-14 ATS overall as a preseason underdog and 7-14 ATS as a road underdog dating back to 2005, while they are 3-4 ATS overall as an underdog and 2-4 ATS as a road dog under Pederson.

 

You Can Get An Insane Payout When You Bet The Jets at PlayMGM NJ Tonight

Kyle Scott - August 15, 2019

PlayMGM is running an absolutely radical promo on the Jets’ Week 2 preseason game tonight. They are offering 100-1 odds on a $1 bet if they score a single point in the game. They don’t even have to win. Just score a point.

PlayMGM has been running these large odds boost promos throughout the summer and into the NFL preseason. It is their way of marketing themselves to the North Jersey audience and trying to stand out in the online betting space. MGM has been one of the casino brands trying to keep pace with DraftKings and FanDuel, who are absolutely dominating the online betting market in New Jersey.

You can get either offer when you sign up here and claim $100 real cash back on your first bet .

How does it work?

To get started is really simple. Simply click this link , fill out your information, and place a $1 moneyline bet on the Jets. Then root for them to score a point. Any point. Touchdown, field goal, safety. You name it. It’ll get you your $100 bonus.

Inventive marketing offers

Look for playMGM to be more inventive and aggressive with their promotions. Big brand casinos have struggled in the online space to keep pace with the digital native apps, and promotions like these will help draw in a new audience as the second season of online betting in New Jersey rolls around.

There is a renewed focus on digital marketing and the strong odds boosts have proven to be successful for other operators.

Last year, DraftKings ran 100-1 Oscars promo for winners to pick the Best Picture, and FanDuel ran a 53-1 promo for the Super Bowl, which helped catapult them to number one in New Jersey.

Now there are always max bet offers with this. FanDuel capped the bet at $5 for the Super Bowl. In this case, playMGM is capping the bet at $1, but it’s a 100-1 payout.

The payouts typically have a play-through requirement, so you won’t be able to immediately withdraw the money, but it is a good way to fund your account on your initial bet when signing up with playMGM.

FanDuel Sportsbook PA Betting Update August 13: Phillies Preview and Odds Boosts

Bob Wankel - August 13, 2019

Here’s your FanDuel Sportsbook PA betting update for Tuesday, August 13th.

In baseball action, the Phillies return home to Citizens Bank Park after a miserable 2-5 road trip in which they hit just 14 of 62 with runners in scoring position, which is probably why Charlie Manuel is now the team’s hitting coach after John Mallee was dismissed earlier this morning. Manuel’s return to the Phillies’ dugout should create some buzz for a moribund (second time I’ve used that word in a post today) lineup that is in desperate need of a jolt. With Manuel’s return, I guess you could say that IT’S HITTIN’ SEASON.

21+ and present in NJ or PA. Gambling problem? Call 1-800-GAMBLER.

It will be Jason Vargas (6-6, 4.09 ERA) making his third start for the Phillies against Chicago’s Jose Quintana (10-7, 4.23 ERA).

We’re also just two days away from the Eagles’ second preseason game. Carson Wentz (probably not) vs. Nick Foles!

That will be the leading storyline ahead of a game that will most likely heavily feature backups and a number of players that won’t be on either team’s roster in a few weeks. Still, it’s a football game and you can bet on it, so we’ll get into some things to know about that matchup in a bit and how to bet it at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Finally, FanDuel Sportsbook has odds on the Sixers’ season opener against the Boston Celtics on October 23.

 

Cubs-Phillies Odds at FanDuel Sportsbook PA

Starters: Jason Vargas (PHI) vs. Jose Quintana (CHI)
Money Line: PHI (+124) | CHI (-142)
Total Runs: 10.5 Over (-106) | Under (-106)

Cubs-Phillies Trends to Know

A Daunting Moneyline

If you want to grab the Phillies at FanDuel Sportsbook tonight, I’ve got some bad news. The Phillies are a miserable 14-30 (-$1,243) as an underdog. They are also 5-15 (-$921) this season when a moneyline underdog between +110 and +140 and 2-8 (-$520) as a home underdog. Awful.

Meanwhile, the Cubs are 50-27 ($825) this season as a favorite, while the Cubs are  24-14 ($453) when favored between -117 and -147 on the moneyline.

 

Cubs-Phillies Prop Bet

Rhys Hoskins is probably happy to get back to Citizens Bank Park tonight after a rough west coast trip in which he went only 2 for 24 while failing to drive in a run. He has a 1.047 OPS against LHP this season and will be looking to bust out of his slump against Cubs starter Jose Quintana, who he’s already taken deep once in five career ABs. It’s worth noting that 15 of the 16 homers Quintana has allowed this season have been to right-handed hitters.

 

Eagles-Jaguars Odds at FanDuel Sportsbook

Spread: PHI: +3 (-110) | JAX: –3 (-110)
Money Line: PHI (+132) | JAX(-162)
Total Points: 35 – Over (-110) | Under (-116)

Eagles-Jaguars Trends to Know

We don’t know if Carson Wentz will play in this one, but it appears head coach Doug Pederson isn’t too concerned with playing his starters much this preseason. Here’s something to know: The Eagles are 8-14 ATS overall as a preseason underdog and 7-14 ATS as a road underdog dating back to 2005, while they are 3-4 ATS overall as an underdog and 2-4 ATS as a road dog under Pederson.

Sixers-Celtics Odds

Spread: BOS: +6 (-110) | PHI: -6 (-110)
Money Line: BOS (+210) | PHI (-250)
The Sixers were 8-5 ATS when favored at home between five and sevens points last season, while the Celtics were an impressive 4-1 ATS when on the road as a five to seven point underdog.

$500 Risk Free Bet

Still going and likely will be going into football season, new FanDuel Sportsbook users in PA can claim a $500 risk-free bet when they sign up.

FanDuel Sportsbook Is Rolling Out a Strong Phillies Promo This Weekend

Kyle Scott - August 9, 2019

FanDuel Sportsbook is running a promotion for the Phillies-Giants game tomorrow, on August 10th– one of their first daily odds boosts in Pennsylvania. But the promo is also available in New Jersey.

How does it work?

FanDuel is offering bettors who bet $25 or more on the moneyline for the Phillies or Giants a $5 site credit for every run their team scores.

21+ and present in NJ or PA. Gambling problem? Call 1-800-GAMBLER.

Now, we’ve seen promotions like this before. FanDuel, DraftKings Sportsbook, and PointsBet, to my recollection, have all ran similar offers. But thus far in PA, FanDuel has been a bit limited with their daily promos, relying on the fact that they were the only iOS app for about a month, and on their superior brand name.

How It Works

  • Sign up (if you haven’t already)
  • Bet $25 or more on the moneyline for the Phillies vs Giants game on 8/10
  • Get $5 in site credit for every run your team scores in the game
  • Minimum $25 moneyline bet to qualify
  • 1 eligible wager per person, per game
  • Cash out bets ineligible
  • Live bets ineligible
  • Max bonus $50 per game
  • Amount equal to site credit must be wagered before winnings can be withdrawn
  • Bonus expires 7 days after receipt

But it looks like they’re starting to roll out local team promotions in PA. Clearly Philadelphia is their bigger market for them, as promotional copy makes no mention of Pittsburgh.

Double Dip

The good news is that new users can get their $500 risk-free bet and this run-scoring bonus combined at FanDuel Sportsbook.

There’s some fine print details, however.

You have to bet $25 or more. Only one wager per person. Live and cash out bets are ineligible. And the max bonus you can receive is $50 (in other words, your team would have to score 10 runs).

There is a 1X play through requirement on the winnings, which is standard and reasonable. Your bonus will expire after seven days.
