DraftKings, FanDuel and BetStars All Have a Double or Triple Odds Boost on the Eagles Today

Kyle Scott - November 25, 2018

Some late NFL value for you if you like the Eagles to win today and you’re in New Jersey. Not cover. Win.

DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook and BetStars NJ are all offering odds boosts on the Eagles moneyline (which I’m not sure says much about the confidence books have in the Eagles, who are -5.

DraftKings

It is now or never for Philadelphia when they host New York on Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. At 4-6 and fading fast, it’s desperation time for the defending champs as they look to avoid their third-straight home loss and stay alive in the NFC Playoff race. It’s undoubtedly a big game for the Birds, and it just got even bigger for our readers. Thanks to our partnership, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a 3x Profit Boost* on winning bets backing Philly for all remaining divisional games, including this week’s showdown with New York. This one is only available to new users.

FanDuel

FanDuel is offering to double your winnings on a Birds moneyline bet, and this is available to new and current players. They are also offering new users a $500 risk free bet (might not be able to combined with the Eagles bet).

BetStars NJ

BetStars is straight up offering the Eagles at +300. This is available to anyone, but new users can get a $50 free bet with no deposit.

DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts Set to Open in Atlantic City

BWanksCB - November 14, 2018

DraftKings Sportsbook has been a player in the New Jersey sports gambling scene with its popular mobile app since sports wagering became legal back in August, and the company will soon enter the state’s retail sports betting space. DraftKings has partnered with Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City and is nearing completion of DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts, which is set to open later this month, pending approval from the Division of Gaming Enforcement.

Here’s President and CEO of Resorts, Mark Giannantonio, from the press release announcing the project:

We are proud to partner with an industry leader in sports betting and open an innovative sports betting experience that only DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts will offer. Once completed, the new on-property retail space will bring an immersive and entertaining gaming experience for our guests and sports fans alike, ensuring the best sports betting scene in Atlantic City.

The location will feature several wagering options, including live, in-game betting, a VIP area, ultra-high-definition video walls, stadium-style seating, and a full bar with food and drink service.

You can of course bet at DraftKings Sportsbook online if you are in New Jersey:

DraftKings Sportsbook Is Rolling Out “Pools” For You To Compete Against Other Bettors

BWanksCB - November 8, 2018

DraftKings Sportsbook is now offering a new way to get in on the action with the introduction of DraftKings Sportsbook Pools. The new feature, which is now live on the DraftKings Sportsbook app, allows users to pick the outcomes of a set group of sporting events in a pool-style format to win cash payouts based on finish. In simpler terms, it’s like a merger between daily fantasy formats and the old school office pool which will give players the opportunity to score big payouts. From the DraftKings Sportsbook Pools press release:

Players select from provided responses and submit their entry into a pool where inners are then determined based on the number of correct picks as the real-life events unfold. The inaugural DraftKings Sportsbooks Pools contest will feature a $20 entry with a minimum of $200,000 in total prizes, including a $100,000 jackpot to be shared among all players who select all Sunday and Monday NFL Week 10 games correctly. For the opening contest, players in New Jersey will receive 20 percent of the prize pool for 10 correct picks, 30 percent for 11 correct picks and 50 percent for making all 12 picks correctly.

Seems simple enough. I decided to hop on the app and see for myself how the new pool game works, so I’ll share that with you here:

At the home screen, you’ll see a “Pools” heading with a link to this week’s NFL Pick’em contest.

draftkings pools

Users will then be asked to select the outright winner (no point spreads) of each NFL Week 10 contest.

Seems simple enough. Users that can’t decide on the outcome of a specific game can use the “Both” option to create up to the 32 separate entries for the Week 10 contest. As of Thursday morning, it appears this is the lone contest for this upcoming week, but expect additional pick ’em and ATS contests to eventually roll out beyond this week.

Bonus: first bet matched up to $500

Oh yeah, one other thing. The app is now viewable from anywhere, so those outside of New Jersey that are looking to get a feel for DraftKings’ offerings can now sign in and check it out. Of course, only those within the state’s lines will be able to place wagers. For now.

FanDuel Sportsbook Is Offering Up To $200 in Risk Free Bets This Weekend

Kyle Scott - October 20, 2018

When FanDuel Sportsbook first launched, we noted in our review that their initial deposit bonus – $100 – paled in comparison to what SugarHouse and BetStars were offering new players. We figured maybe they were resting on their brand recognition and felt they didn’t need to offer aggressive promotions to get new players to sign up. Whatever they’re doing is working, though, as evidenced by the fact that DraftKings and FanDuel are far and away the early leaders in legal online sports betting.

But FanDuel isn’t sitting still, and they’ve been offering up aggressive (and useful!) weekly promos to attract new bettors and keep current bettors engaged.

This week, in addition to a slew of bet guarantee offers, FanDuel is offering $200 in risk free bets.

Here’s the copy directly from their email:

Have a $200 Risk Free Weekend ON US! Just place any bets this weekend (10/19 — 10/21), and we’ll refund your net losses up to $200. But don’t wait too long — this offer expires Sunday (10/21/18) at 11:59pm ET. Eligible users credited Monday (10/22).

OK, so there has to be fine print, right?

The fully copy will follow, but here’s the gist: You basically have to place pre-game wager bets on the spread and the bets must settle (event completed) before the promotion expires, which should only potentially be an issue for Sunday Night Football. You also can’t use the “cash out” option to exit the bet early. If the net result of your bets is negative, your account will be credited the amount up to $200.

As with all sportsbook promotions, you can’t withdraw that credit until you wager the amount on eligible bets first. Pretty standard restriction there.

That’s it. The promo applies to current FanDuel Sportsbook customers and new players [sign up here] and the offer is in addition to the $100 deposit bonus and other weekly promos (though you can combine these) FanDuel offers.

You can hit the link to register for FanDuel to get these bonuses:

The Best New Jersey Sportsbook Promos For Week 6

Kyle Scott - October 11, 2018

Week 6 is upon us, and there’s a diverse range of betting options in New Jersey. FanDuel Sportsbook and BetStars, in particular, are offering strong promos. A part of any betting strategy that often gets overlooked is the value being offered by the books, whether that’s straight price or promos and incentives that can be used to your advantage.

Here’s a rundown of the best NJ online sportsbooks and most compelling offers for Week 6:

 

Easiest deposit methods

Bonus: First deposit matched up to $250

Minimum Deposit: $10

SugarHouse Sportsbook

21+ and Gambling Problem? Call 1-800-Gambler

SugarHouse Sportsbook doesn’t get nearly the same attention as DraftKings or FanDuel, but they are the sleeper thus far, partly due to their operating as an online casino for several years. The PlaySugarHouse Casino app, now branded as SugarHouse Sportsbook and Casino, benefits from having ironed out the kinks, particularly when it comes to deposit methods. If you can think of the method, you can probably do it at SugarHouse, including depositing in person at 7-11, which is crazy.

Additionally, their $250 deposit bonus has the fewest strings attached to it– you simply have to wager it once and then it can be withdrawn.

Their app is backed by Kambi, which means they offer almost entirely the same odds as DraftKings and 888, with the benefit of having other casino games built into the app.

To get your $250 deposit bonus, you can sign up for SugarHouse and download their Android and iOS apps here.

This is a tie. FanDuel offers only a $100 deposit bonus, which is meager compared to its competitors, but they offer genuinely useful weekly promos.

This week they’re offering NFL “Close Loss” insurance, which will refund any moneyline bet up to $50 if the team you choose loses by six points or less. That’s outstanding! Depending on which side of the line you’re playing, that either gives you 6+ points of buffer on a favorite, or significantly better odds on an underdog. There’s a little bit of fine print – you have to use the bonus before it can be withdrawn – but this is an excellent and fair promo. There’s really no reason not to try it, especially if you feel strongly about a particular outright winner.

They’re also offering a similar promo on MLB playoff games.

You can access these offers by registering for FanDuel here.

BetStars, on the other hand, offers $500 in free bets (fine print, of course) and a range of rotating promos. Such as:

Bet $25 and get a free $5 bet— pretty straightforward, available every week

NFL 2 Minute Drill— if you place any NFL moneyline bet and your team is leading with two minutes to go and loses, you’ll get a refund up to $20

Super Boost— get a boost on football 3-bet parlays

Stars Stack— better odds on multiple players scoring touchdowns

Lock in Your Profits— similar to DraftKings, you have the option to cash out of live bets, which has been popular and adds a whole new dimension to betting

Spin and Bet— spin the wheel to get up to a 10x odds boost

These offers are bit a more random and probably don’t offer the sort of action you’d normally bet on, they can be a lot of fun and provide some value just about every day.

We also really like BetStars’ app. It’s not as slick or modern looking as DraftKings or FanDuel, but it just works and is simple to understand. We find BetStars often has pretty appealing odds as well.

You can download the BetStars app here. It is available on Android and, soon, iOS. The iOS app is set to launch on Sunday, so depending on when you read this it may or may not be available. The good news is that, for now, their sportsbook is housed inside the PokerStars app on iOS.

DraftKings is the biggest brand and the sportsbook most of your friends are probably playing. While they don’t offer the most enticing promo – they’ll match your first bet up to $200 – there’s no doubt it’s one of the best and more user friendly apps out there.

What we really like is their cash out option, which allows you to exit any bet you’re winning or losing at a reduced rate. It adds an extra layer of strategy to things, though be careful about hedging your winning bets– you’ll be tempted to work against yourself, so use this judiciously.

To get your first bet matched up to $200, you can sign up for DraftKings here.

 

Best free offer

888sport new jersey

Bonus: $10 free bet and $500 deposit bonus

888sport

  • New and exciting
  • Mobiled focused
  • $10 bet with no deposit
  • Super clean interface

888sport, while not having the most confidence-inspiring name for a US brand, is backed by the same provider as DraftKings and SugarHouse, Kambi, so the action is the same and they offer a free $10 bet with no deposit needed.

To get your $10 free bet, you can sign up for 888sport here.

BetStars NJ’s iOS App Is Expected To Launch on October 14

Kyle Scott - October 10, 2018

As you know, we’re big fans of the BetStars NJ sports betting app. Why? It is the most compelling of the non-big-brand-sites– DraftKings and FanDuel.

betstars sports betting

Bonus: $500 in free bets

Minimum Deposit: $10

BetStars NJ

21+. NJ only. Gambling Problem? Call 1-800-Gambler

BetStars, which is owned by Canadian company The Stars Group and has had a lot of success in Europe, is a mobile-first product built on the PokerStars platform. They brought their sports betting app to the US last month on Android, but App Store hold ups and other apparent delays have pushed the iOS app release back to this weekend. Previously, the BetStars sportsbook was available inside the PokerStars app on iOS.

Representatives from the company tell us that the iOS app is due to launch on October 14, with their web-based interface on schedule for November 1.

This would be the first international sportsbook to offer an iOS app. 888sport appeared to be in a similar iOS delay, and we have no word on when their app will go live on iPhone or iPad.

PointsBet, an Australian company, has partnered with casinos in New Jersey and New York, but they are not live yet.

William Hill, though technically a British company, has a US arm and has launched its iOS app.

According to Google Trends data, BetStars has lagged behind DraftKings and FanDuel in terms of interest, for the obvious reason of not having anywhere near the same level of brand recognition. At least not yet. They have held off on their marketing push until the iOS app arrives.

 

A modern betting app

BetStars is the best of the international brands competing in the US betting space. First and foremost, they offer a user-friendly app. It lacks the slick interface of FanDuel and the familiarly of DraftKings, but it’s clean and simple and just works. The learning curve is very low.

 

Strong promotions

One of the things we’re seeing from the legal sportbooks so far is the ability to offer unique promos and bets during this acquisition phase. In additional to traditional signup bonuses and deposit matches, which we’ve detailed on our NJ online sports betting page, many of the operators have been offering unique bets, guarantees, and odds boosts.

Out of the gate, BetStars offers all three.

While their 500-1 Super Bowl odds promo ended on September 30, they still offer $500 in free bets as their signup bonus.

Currently, they are also running a series of boosts and promos.

Bet $25 and get a free $5 bet— pretty straightforward, available every week

NFL 2 Minute Drill— if you place any NFL moneyline bet and your team is leading with two minutes to go and loses, you’ll get a refund up to $20

Super Boost— get a boost on football 3-bet parlays

Stars Stack— better odds on multiple players scoring touchdowns

Lock in Your Profits— similar to DraftKings, you have the option to cash out of live bets, which has been popular and adds a whole new dimension to betting

Spin and Bet— spin the wheel to get up to a 10x odds boost

Overall, these are just really fun options. I wouldn’t recommend basing your entire strategy on any promo offer, however they can add a casual element to the betting experience, while also occasionally being a good strategic play.

 

So while BetStars has been slow on the uptick, they are worth checking out, both for the user-friendly interface and the range of fun promos and options they offer for casual and experienced bettors. You can download both the Android and iOS apps by clicking bet now.

Saturday, September 1

Leicester City v Liverpool

leicester liverpool betting

Leicester City would have been the play here if Jamie Vardy was not still suspended. But he is. Take Liverpool to win at 2/5, and don’t be afraid to lay a goal at 11/10 (not pictured) — Liverpool could end up shellacking the Foxes in this one.

West Ham United v. Wolverhampton

west ham wolverton betting

West Ham have been atrocious this season, and the mood around the Olympic Stadium in London continues to be fairly toxic. It looks like this will be the season that finally sees the Hammers relegated. Meanwhile, Wolves held league champion Manchester City to a draw last week. They are the better team — take Wolverhampton to win at 9/5.

Manchester City v. Newcastle United

manchester city newcastle betting

Speaking of City, they will be none too pleased to start the day two points behind four other clubs at the top of the table. And with Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur all favored to win this weekend (Watford aren’t really title contenders), City can ill afford another slip-up against the Magpies. Fortunately for City, Newcastle are their typically disintegrating mess of a club. The manager thinks the club is headed for relegation. Everybody affiliated with the club hates the owner. Take the over on 3.5 goals. A score of 3-1 or 4-0 is pretty likely.

Sunday, September 2

Burnley v. Manchester United

burnley manchester united betting

It’s the resistable force against the movable object. Both of these clubs are off to nightmare starts. Burnley are already out of the Europa League. United are already dealing with rumours of Jose Mourinho potentially being sacked. Both of these teams could use a win, but what both of them really need is not to lose. Take the draw at 13/5.

Watford v. Tottenham Hotspur

watford tottenham betting

Liverpool have been the fashionable pick to pressure Manchester City for the league title, but nobody should be selling Spurs short. Not now, anyway. Mauricio Pochettino’s club is off to an unblemished start of their own, and there isn’t much about Watford that suggests they can take points from Harry Kane et al. Take Tottenham Hotspur to win at 6/10.
