FanDuel Sportsbook PA Betting Update August 19: Phillies Futures, Eagles-Ravens Odds, College Football is Coming

Bob Wankel - August 19, 2019

Here’s your FanDuel Sportsbook PA betting update for Monday, August 19.

Things are heating up on the sports calendar and at PA online sportsbooks. The Phillies head to Boston Tuesday for an important two-game set against the defending World Series champs as they look to rebound from a disappointing series loss to the Padres. With the team idle Monday, we’ll take a look at some Phillies futures markets .

As for the Eagles, they return home to Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday night where they’ll host the Ravens in their third preseason game.

I’d like to tell you this one will be the traditional dress rehearsal, but it remains to be seen if Doug Pederson will get his starters meaningful reps in this one. At the very least, we should get our first look at Eagles new backup quarterback Josh McCown. So that’s fun.

Speaking of meaningful, college football’s regular season action kicks off on Saturday night in Orlando with an in-state rivalry game between Miami and Florida. We’ll fill you in on all of the action in today’s update.

Premier League Betting Value Plays at PA Online Sportsbooks

Philip Keidel - August 17, 2019

PA online sports betting is giving us some enticing Premier League betting options to cash in on this week. Let’s run through the action and see if we can spot some quality value plays.

Early returns in the Premier League were mixed last week. Manchester City and Liverpool, the top two teams in the league last season, both won easily. Things weren’t so rosy for Chelsea, who find themselves 19th in the table after losing 4-0 at Old Trafford to Manchester United. Liverpool and Chelsea then flew to Istanbul to face off in the UEFA Super Cup, where Liverpool prevailed on penalties. Both of those sides figure to be exhausted after their travels and having played extra time. The book knows this.. .the uninformed betting public, maybe not so much.

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.

 

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.

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.

FanDuel Sportsbook PA Betting Update August 7: Phillies Preview and Odds Boosts

Bob Wankel - August 7, 2019

Here’s your FanDuel Sportsbook PA betting update for Wednesday, August 7th.

In baseball action, the Phillies look to rebound in Arizona and secure a series win after yet another infuriating loss last night. The Phillies blew multiple chances to bury Diamondbacks starter Mike Leake in the early innings, but failed.

In total, they were a dismal 2-17 with runners in scoring position, continuing their trend of inept hitting in clutch situations. Since last Friday, they are 12 for 62 with runners in scoring position. Perhaps more amazingly, the Phillies are hitting under .100 dating back to the start of July with the bases loaded.

It will be Jason Vargas making his second start for the Phillies against Arizona’s Zac Gallen. He’s a South Jersey product who will be making his first start for the Diamondbacks since they acquired him via trade prior to the deadline.

Also, there’s some good news for football fans. We’re just one day away from the return of Eagles (preseason) football. They’ll play host to the Titans tomorrow night at Lincoln Financial Field. Yes, I know that it’s a preseason game, but I also know that it is still a football game and thus people will bet on it. We’ll get into some things to know about that matchup in a bit and how to bet it at FanDuel Sportsbook.

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

Phillies-Diamondbacks Odds

Starters: Jason Vargas (PHI) vs. Zac Gallen (ARI)
Money Line: PHI (+122) | ARI (-140)
Total Runs: 9 Over (-116) | Under (-106)

Phillies- Diamondbacks Trends to Know

West Coast Struggles

Barring drastic late movement, the moneyline in this game is currently set in the same neighborhood as last night’s contest, so much of what I wrote yesterday will be reiterated here.

Let’s begin with the Phillies’ poor performance on the west coast. In fact, “poor” may be generous.

After last night’s 8-4 loss in Arizona, the Phillies are now 12-34 (-$1,851) since the start of the 2017 season on the road against NL West opponents. That’s bad, so bad, in fact, that no team has been less profitable against NL West opponents on the road during that time. They are also just 8-21 (-$1,162) against them under Gabe Kapler.

The Phillies are again the underdog in this one, so it’s worth noting that they are 9-31 (-$1,767) against NL West opponents on the road as an underdog since 2017, including 2-7 (-$454) this season.

They have, however, been a little bit better at Chase Field, going 7-8 (+244) overall since the start of the 2015 season. Yeah, they’re below .500 there, but have remained profitable because they’ve been the underdog in all 15 games.

A Daunting Moneyline

If you want to grab the Phillies tonight, I’ve got some bad news. The Phillies are 4-14 (-$769) this season when a moneyline underdog between +110 and +140. They are 2-10 (-$897) when a dog between +110 and +130.

Underdog Woes

The Phillies are only 13-21 (-$486) as a road underdog this season. They had won three of their previous four games in that role heading into last night, but, well, you know. Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks have been a poor play as a home favorite, going only 14-17 (-$681).

Phillies-Diamondbacks Prop Bet

Over/Under 4.5 HR (Take the over)

Jason Vargas is allowing 1.4 HR/9 this season, while Zac Gallen is allowing 0.7 HR/9, so those numbers don’t necessarily add up to a ton of long balls tonight, but the Phillies bullpen has the second-worst HR/9 in the sport this season. Here’s the other issue: Vargas has allowed seven homers over only 14.1 IP in three starts. He has a 9.42 ERA while opposing hitters have posted a robust 1.144 OPS. Combine those numbers with what the Phillies’ tattered bullpen is doing, and I’ll take my chances the Phils pop one or two and push the total over 4.5 homers.

Titans-Eagles Odds

Spread: TEN: +3.5 (-125) | PHI: –3.5 (+105)
Money Line: TEN (+140) | PHI (-172)
Total Points: 37 – Over (-102) | Under (-118)
The line in this game is holding steady at FanDuel Sportsbook in PA with the Eagles as a 3.5-point favorite, but the moneyline has jumped from -160/+135 on Monday to -172/+140, so a bet on the Eagles to win outright is a bit more expensive this afternoon.

Titans-Eagles Trends to Know

Let’s be honest, this is preseason football we’re talking about. Doug Pederson told reporters on Tuesday that a decision hasn’t been made about the playing status of several key starters, including quarterback Carson Wentz or left tackle Jason Peters. There are so many unknown variables in these games, which makes it hard to provide any type of meaningful analysis. Still, there are some Eagles-related preseason trends that jump out, so if you’re looking to bet on this game, then consider the following information:

The Eagles are 7-5 in preseason games under head coach Doug Pederson, but they most recently struggled through a lackluster 1-3 preseason in 2018. Meanwhile, the Titans are 0-4 in preseason games under head coach Mike Vrabel.
The Eagles have won by four or more points in six of their sevens preseason wins under Pederson. Moreover, their average margin of victory is 7.86 points per game. Essentially, when the Eagles win in the preseason, they’ve also been able to cover a theoretical 3.5-point spread.
The Eagles are 19-11 ATS at home in preseason games since the 2005 season. More recently, the Eagles are 5-1 ATS under Peterson in the preseason at Lincoln Financial Field.

Working with this specific point spread, the Eagles have also performed well at home in preseason games dating back to 2005. They are 14-6 ATS when favored between three and four points, making them the NFL’s most profitable team in that spread range during that span.

Titans-Eagles Prop Bet at FanDuel Sportsbook PA

Those looking to try a more profitable wager, FanDuel Sportsbook suggests taking a shot on the Eagles at +14 with a +290 payout. As noted above, the Titans were 0-4 last season, but not only were they winless, each of those four losses were by double digits.

$500 Risk Free Bet

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

FanDuel Sportsbook PA Betting Update August 6: Phillies Preview and Odds Boosts

Bob Wankel - August 6, 2019

Here’s your FanDuel Sportsbook PA betting update for Tuesday, August 6th.

In baseball action, the Phillies look to make it two straight wins in Arizona and secure a series victory when Jake Arrieta (8-8, 4.44 ERA) opposes starter Mike Leake (9-8, 4.27 ERA), who’s making his first start with the Diamondbacks.

We’re also just two days away from EAGLES FOOTBALL (sort of)! The Birds host the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field. Yeah, I know – it’s preseason football, but not only can you get in on preseason action with FanDuel Sportsbook, deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want to bet on preseason football.
