DraftKings Sportsbook Is Running a Free March Mania Survivor Pool

Kyle Scott - March 10, 2020

DraftKings Sportsbook is running a March Mania Survivor Pool. It is free and available to players in all states. Winners will share from a $250,000 prize pool.

Here’s how to sign up.

Click this link to register for free with DraftKings to participate in their March madness survival pool.


How To Play DraftKings Survivor Pool

This is sort of a brilliant contest from DraftKings.

Each NCAA Tournament game day through the Elite Eight, you will pick one team to advance. If your team wins, you keep going.

Starting with the Elite Eight, you’ll be able to pick one team per round.

Sounds easy enough, right?

Not so fast.

As with most survivor pools, you can only pick each team once. So while it may seem like a no-brainer to take a team like Kentucky or Villanova in the first round, know that you won’t be able to use them later in the tournament.

This will force you to select lower seeds early on and save the favorites toward the end.

If you find yourself in a situation in, say, the Final Four where you run out of teams to pick, well then your run is over in DraftKings’ survivor pool. Continue Reading

DraftKings Sportsbook Is Offering 10 to 1 Odds on Oscars Best Picture

Kyle Scott - February 4, 2020

The 92nd annual Academy Awards is on Sunday. And yes, you can bet on it. Available to movie fans in New Jersey and Indiana, DraftKings Sportsbook is giving you the opportunity to bet on the winners of each category. In addition, they are offering 10-to-1 odds (or a $100 payout on a $10 bet) for new users who correctly guess the Best Picture winner.

This is an absolute steal of an opportunity for people looking to bet on the Oscars for the first time.

Let’s explore what you can bet on, and how to get the most value by betting on the Academy Awards with DraftKings.

How to Win $100 on Best Picture from DraftKings Sportsbook

For the second year in a row, DraftKings Sportsbook is rolling out a huge odds boost on the Best Picture winner, if you’re a new bettor with them.

While DraftKings’ online betting app is available in several states, only regulators in New Jersey and Indiana will allow them to accept bets on the Oscars– since they have a predetermined outcome.

For players in those states, DraftKings is giving you the opportunity to win $100 on a $10 bet if you correctly select Best Picture. This is otherwise known as +1000 odds. Here’s how to get the bonus:

  • Step 1: Click his link here
  • Step 2: You’ll be taken to a landing page that says “Bet Now.” Click that link and sign up for a sports betting account with DraftKings.
  • Step 3: You will lock in your 10-to-1 odds when you bet on the Best Picture winner.

There is no promo code required for this offer. You simply must click the link.

DraftKings’ 10-1 Oscars betting promo is just the latest in a series of aggressive odds boosts offered up by online sportsbooks to entice new customers to come in and bet.

While the Super Bowl just ended (undoubtedly the biggest betting day for all online betting apps), other events throughout the spring and summer will represent a huge opportunity to bring fans of other sports and entertainment options into the fold and get them to experience the thrill of betting with DraftKings.

The Academy Awards represent a huge opportunity for movie fans and other demographics – namely women – to sign up for a betting account.

Last year, DraftKings actually offered 100-1 odds on the Oscars. They’ve scaled it back this year, but it’s still a good offer.

Other betting apps, like BetMGM which recently offered 200-1 odds on the Super Bowl to entice new players to try out their app, have ran offers like this before.


What Oscars Categories Can You Bet on at DraftKings?

DraftKings has odds for all of the major Academy Awards categories. By far the most wagered on will be Best Picture, along with Best Actress and Best Actor.

We’ve put together a full Oscar’s betting guide, but if you’d like to get $100 from DraftKings, make sure you click the link and sign up. And enjoy the show.

DraftKings Sportsbook is Offering Awesome UFC 246 Odds on Conor McGregor

Bob Wankel - January 18, 2020

If you are thinking about taking the heavily-favored Conor McGregor in his return to the octagon during UFC 246 tonight, then DraftKings Sportsbook is offering up some crazy odds that are absolutely worth checking out.

Bettors in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Indiana can grab McGregor, who is currently a -335 favorite over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone on the standard betting market, at ridiculous +100 odds with DraftKings.

McGregor’s big-value odds boost is just one of several deals DraftKings is offering ahead of UFC 246. All of this comes in addition to DraftKings Sportsbook’s latest sign-up bonus of to $1,000 in free bets.

DraftKings Sportsbook’s UFC 246 Odds Boosts

DraftKings Sportsbook’s offer of McGregor at +100 odds is definitely the headline offer here. There is one caveat, however, which is that bets on McGregor at the enhanced +100 price are capped at $20. Any other action on McGregor to win the fight would need to be placed at the current market odds (which were -335 at the time of this post) either straight-up or as part of a parlay.

McGregor enters his fight with Cerrone with a 21-4 record but has not fought since falling to the still undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov back in October of 2018, while Cerrone sports a 36-13 mark.

Bettors looking to score a potentially more aggressive payout should be sure to take a look at McGregor, Holly Holm, and Anthony Pettis all to win at a boosted +615 payout (previously +563). While McGregor is a substantial favorite and Holm is also currently favored at a more modest -143 to defeat Raquel Pennington, Pettis is a +180 underdog to favorite Diego Ferreira.

If you’re looking for a solid payout without the long odds, you can also grab McGregor to win the fight in round one at +200 (previously +175). For context, McGregor carries a 9-2 UFC record. Of those nine victories, four have come via a first-round decision, though he has not earned an opening-round win since UFC 194 back in December of 2015 when he  scored a decision by TKO over Jose Aldo.

DraftKings is offering these odds boosts in addition to standard action on 11 different fights throughout the evening, along with a slew of other betting options. Among those options are winning method, winning round, most takedowns, and most significant strikes, creating wagering options for everybody from casual fight fans to more knowledgable followers of the sport.

DraftKings Sportsbook Is Offering a 3 to 1 Payout on the Eagles to Beat the Seahawks

Bob Wankel - January 2, 2020

The Eagles are NFC East champs and DraftKings Sportsbook PA has a deal for bettors in Pennsylvania to celebrate the occasion. DraftKings is extending its +300 moneyline deal on the Eagles this week by offering the Birds to knock off the Seahawks on Sunday in the opening round of the NFL Playoffs.

This deal available exclusively through Crossing Broad to new users who sign up here .


DraftKings Sportsbook Eagles vs. Seahawks Odds Boost

New users to DraftKings Sportsbook who are in Pennsylvania that are looking to grab the Eagles as a small home underdog, a postseason role they have mastered in recent seasons, can nearly triple the potential payouts currently offered on the moneyline market. Bypass the early-week +110 moneyline odds by taking the Birds at +300 odds on first bets of up to $50.

DraftKings Sportsbook has made this same exclusive offer available to Crossing Broad readers dating back to November, but new users that have taken advantage of this deal in recent weeks have scored big thanks to Philly’s four-game December surge that helped secure a division crown. Now, DraftKings is extending the same offer for the Eagles’ postseason run.

Last week, users that cashed in on the deal turned the Eagles -200 moneyline price upside down and scored insane value with a +300 payout. A normal moneyline bettor risking $50 on the Eagles would have walked away with only $75, whereas those that took advantage of our offer walked away with a $200 return. While this week’s game doesn’t present quite the same value, it’s still strong. Continue Reading

DraftKings Sportsbook is Offering 3 to 1 Odds on the Eagles to Beat the Giants Today

Bob Wankel - December 29, 2019

The Eagles can wrap up the NFC East title and a home playoff game with a win over the Giants later this afternoon. And you, Eagles fan, can celebrate that division title and score a 3 to 1 payout if the Eagles win thanks to our exclusive +300 Eagles moneyline boost at DraftKings Sportsbook PA.

New DraftKings Sportsbook players in the state of Pennsylvania who are looking to take the Eagles later this afternoon can bypass the point spread and the pricey moneyline odds on the favorite by grabbing the Eagles at +300 odds on up to a $50 introductory bet.

We’ve been writing about this offer for a few weeks now and new users to DraftKings that have taken advantage of it the past few weeks have scored the +300 payout in Philadelphia’s wins over the Giants, Redskins, and Cowboys. Sunday afternoon could mark the final opportunity to take advantage of this deal, and it will most certainly be the last time it holds this much value.

How so, you ask?

Here’s some quick math. A bettor risking $50 on the Eagles to win outright would currently walk away with a total of $75 at the current -200 moneyline price, whereas our offer will return $200 on that same $50 investment. That is, of course, if the Eagles win. You can get in on the deal right here .

Despite the Eagles clearly having more at stake today, many expect this game to be closely contested. Still, with the Eagles strongly favored, these heavily boosted odds make it worth a gamble on a game the Eagles should win, particularly considering that they are 14-2 straight up as a favorite against division opponents under Doug Pederson. For more context, FiveThirtyEight’s ELO projection suggests the Eagles should actually be a six-point favorite and have a 70% chance to win the game outright. That’s value.

How to Get the Eagles to Beat the Giants at +300 Odds

It’s easy to get involved. If you’re in PA, simply sign up for DraftKings Sportsbook by hitting this link , deposit money, and place your first bet on the Eagles to beat the Giants at +300 moneyline odds.

This offer is exclusively available through Crossing Broad.

Bettors that took took advantage of this deal last week grabbed the stellar payout when the Eagles upset the Cowboys at home. As usual, Eagles backers had to sweat the game’s outcome until Miles Sanders slid in the open field to seal the game, but they ultimately took home the 3 to 1 payout.

The industry standard on promos such as this one are usually capped around $25 dollars, so it’s worth noting that there’s a bit of a higher ceiling with this offer. For the sake of comparison, FOX Bet has run similar “Eagles to win” promos this season, but the upside was capped below this current DraftKings offer.

DraftKings Sportsbook is Offering 3 to 1 Odds on the Eagles to Beat the Cowboys This Sunday

Bob Wankel - December 20, 2019

The NFC East is on the line this Sunday afternoon when the Eagles and Cowboys clash at Lincoln Financial Field. If you believe the Birds will get it done against their bitter division rival, then you might want to take advantage of our exclusive +300 Eagles moneyline offer at DraftKings Sportsbook PA.

New players in Pennsylvania who are looking to roll with Philly this Sunday could take a shot at the modest return on the standard market, or they could nearly triple it by grabbing Eagles at +300 odds on up to a $50 introductory bet.

What exactly does this mean, you ask?

A standard $50 winning Eagles moneyline bet would currently return $103 dollars on the standard market offering, whereas DraftKings Sportsbook’s deal will return $200, if, of course, the Eagles win. You can grab the offer by signing up right here .

DraftKings Sportsbook is Offering 3 to 1 Odds on the Eagles to Beat the Redskins

Bob Wankel - December 14, 2019

The Eagles are currently a 5.5-point favorite against the Redskins at DraftKings Sportsbook, along with being installed as a strong -240 moneyline favorite. Those odds are a bit pricey as a bettor would have to risk $240 to win $100 on the Eagles to secure an outright win.

If you’re a new player to DraftKings located in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Indiana that is looking to back the Eagles this week, you could lay the money on the heavy favorites. That’s one option. Or, of course, you could turn the odds in your favor by betting the Birds at +300 on an up to $50 introductory bet. You have to sign up here to claim it. That means bettors will cash a 3 to 1 return that pays a healthy $150 in winnings if the Eagles can get it done. This seems like a pretty strong possibility as the Birds are 17-3 straight up when they are favored by at least five points under Doug Pederson.

This is an exclusive offer through Crossing Broad.

DraftKings Sportsbook Is Offering 3 to 1 Odds on the Eagles Tonight (Exclusive)

Kyle Scott - December 9, 2019

The Eagles are currently 9-point favorites vs. the Giants at DraftKings Sportsbook on Monday Night Football this week. That is good for -385 odds on the moneyline, meaning that you would have to stake $385 to win $100 on a bet for the Eagles to win outright, given that they are such heavy favorites.

But if you’re a new player to DraftKings in any of the states where their sports betting app is live and legal – including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Indiana and West Virginia – you can bet the Birds and get +300 odds on an up to $50 introductory bet.

How To Get The Eagles at +300 Odds

Here’s how the promo works: Sign up for DraftKings Sportsbook using this link , deposit money, and place your first bet on the Eagles to beat the Giants at +300 odds.

You can bet up to $50.

Typically, signup bonuses like this for moneyline odds boosts are capped at $25. For example, competitor FOX Bet typically runs these offers, but limits the upside. DraftKings, in this case, is willing to help you lock in a 3x money boost on what certainly feels like a sure thing… or at least should if the Eagles were what we thought they could be.

That means that if you bet $50 on the birds to win, you would win $150.

These are unheard of odds for a team that is nearly a 10-point favorite.

We have partnered with DraftKings Sportsbook to offer exclusive +300 moneyline odds on all Eagles regular season games.

For games in which they’ve been slight favorites or even underdogs, this promo hasn’t been as extreme. But given that they are such large favorites against the Giants, +300 odds on a $50 bet is one of the best offers we’ve seen so far for PA online sports betting.

DraftKings Sportsbook has been live in Pennsylvania for about a month now, and for about two months in Indiana. It is currently our choice for top overall online sportsbook.
