PointsBet is Offering An Intriguing 109 to 1 Booster Promo for Game 4

Joe DiProsperos - June 7, 2019

It’s been an exciting NBA Finals thus far. Toronto came out strong in Game 1, winning by a score of 118-109. Golden State then responded with a 109-104 victory in Game 2. And Wednesday night, Toronto took a 2-1 series lead following their 123-109 win at Oracle Arena in Oakland. PointsBet seems to have noticed something.

Do you see it?

Golden State has scored exactly 109 points in the first three games of this year’s Finals.

 

PointsBet 109-1 odds booster

PointsBet has clearly taken note of this with their newest promo for Game 4: the Warriors 109 Booster. It’s simple: place a maximum bet of $5 if you think the Warriors will score exactly 109 points in Game 4. PointsBet has fittingly set the odds at 109/1 (+10,900).

This isn’t the first time PointsBet has offered a radical promo. Smart about getting publicity for themselves, PointsBet offers Karma Committee payouts, instant payouts, and no juice promos.

PointsBet is available in New Jersey. Bettors in PA still can’t bet on iOS, but they do have one option available to them in SugarHouse Sportsbook.

PointsBet Has Set Early Betting Lines for Game 3 of the NBA Finals

Joe DiProsperos - June 3, 2019

Game 2 was the Raptors’ chance to take full control of the series. Kevin Durant was still out, Steph Curry was clearly not 100%, DeMarcus Cousins was still not fully healed, and even Klay Thompson hurt himself early in the 4th quarter.

But Toronto, despite being given every opportunity to mediate Golden State’s huge run in the third quarter and take advantage of some stops in the 4th quarter, couldn’t deliver, dropping Game 2 109-104. The series is now even at one game a piece as the series shifts back to Oakland.

We are obviously still two days away from Game 3 at Oracle Arena, but PointsBet has set early betting lines for Game 3. They currently have the Warriors as the clear favorites at -240 (70.6% in implied probability), whereas the Raptors have +190 odds (34.5% in implied probability). The spread at the moment is 5.5 with the Warriors as the favorite.

In addition, PointsBet still has the Warriors as the overwhelming favorite to win it all at -286 odds (74.1% in implied probability). They have the Raptors at +221 odds (31.2% in implied probability). FiveThirtyEight’s projections currently give the Warriors a 63% to win the title, which is interesting when you take into account the fact that they gave the Raptors a 55% chance to take the series prior to Game 1.

 

How we got here

Toronto came out strong in Game 1, taking control late in the first half and staving off any and all Warriors runs en route to a 118-109 victory. Golden State had no answers for Pascal Siakam, who dropped 32 points on 14-17 shooting to go along with 8 rebounds. Kawhi had a more modest game by his standards these playoffs, only scoring 23 points, but he had 8 assists, passing out of every double- and triple-team Golden State through at him.

Game 2 looked to be more of the same. Toronto led by as many as 12 in the first half, getting out in transition and quelling Golden State’s offense on the other hand. Steph Curry went without a made field-goal until well into the 2nd quarter. But thanks to the efforts of Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and DeMarcus Cousins, Golden State hung around for a good majority of the first half, cutting Toronto’s lead to five by the end of the half.

The third quarter was an onslaught on behalf of Golden State. They scored the first 18 points of the quarter en route to taking a 13-point lead. Toronto couldn’t buy a make for a majority of the quarter, digging themselves into quite a hole heading into the 4th quarter.

After Klay left the game due to injury, Toronto held Golden State scoreless for over four minutes two-thirds of the way into the fourth. They managed to trim the lead to two on a Danny Green three-pointer with around 30 seconds left. But on the ensuing Warriors possession, Andre Iguodala nailed a dagger three-pointer to put Golden State up five with five seconds left, which ended up being the difference.

Pointsbet Is Offering 100-1 Odds on the Knicks Getting the Top Pick and Tiger Woods Winning the PGA Championship

Bob Wankel - May 14, 2019

If you love watching bouncing ping pong balls on television and getting a deal, then I greet you this fine Tuesday with good news. Today is your day.

PointsBet, you see, has an interesting offer ahead of the NBA Draft Lottery and PGA Championship. Users can grab 100-1 odds if the Knicks get the No. 1 pick and Tiger locks down his second straight major championship. Max bet is $10. New users can also get $1,000 in risk-free bets with code BROADLINES .

A strange bet combo, for sure, but is it worth it? I can’t predict the future, but there’s definitely value here.

The Knicks have a 14% chance of winning the top pick, tied with the Cavs and Suns for the best odds. PointsBet is currently offering the Knicks at 6-1 odds to win the lottery and Tiger at 11-1 to win this weekend. Typically, a $10 parlay at those odds would pay out $830, so a $1,000 pay out on this promo provides a nice boost.

PointsBet Is Offering a Masters Winner Instant Day One Payout

Bob Wankel - April 10, 2019

The 2019 Masters is nearly upon us, and thus it is almost time for fake bird noise to be pumped into your television sets by a production truck, along with plentiful mentions of Amen Corner and Tigers Woods’ major drought. Indeed, all of this makes for a tradition unlike any other. We’ve put together our full Masters Betting Guide and detailed how you can get 100-1 odds on any golfer, but let’s take a look at another strong offer from a New Jersey online sportsbook.

PointsBet is offering a $50 free bet with no deposit and up to $1,000 in risk free bets with promo code BROADLINES , which might be a better deal than those fan-friendly concession prices at Augusta National. That, however, isn’t the only offer worth taking advantage of.

If you’re like me, you probably enjoy constant action and quick results. Lock in the bet, win, reload, and build the bankroll (or lose and chase, but we’re keeping this positive). That’s exactly why I love PointsBet’s “Lead After Day One, Get Paid Instantly” promo.

Here’s how it works.

  • Pick any player to win.
  • If your player is winning at the end of first day, you get paid out immediately.

Best of all, this offer isn’t capped at a modest $25 bet. PointsBet allows bets of up to $200 on this deal. You can get the PointsBet Masters offer here .

Jump in on one of the favorites, like Dustin Johnson at +1100, or back a longer shot like Adam Scott at +4000, win, and get back into the action before Friday’s round. Or, if you back a lemon who has a brutal Thursday, don’t delay the inevitable. Just take the “L’,” get back on the horse and find a winner.

PointsBet is Offering No Juice Spread and Totals Bets on The National Championship Game

Bob Wankel - April 8, 2019

There’s plenty of betting options available at New Jersey sports betting sites for those looking to get involved with tonight’s NCAA National Championship game between No. 3 seed Texas Tech and No. 1 seed Virginia. Among those options is PointsBet, which is easily one of our favorite new sportsbooks because of its easy-to-use interface, wide-ranging wagering selections, lucrative bonuses, and cool promo offers.

PointsBet can’t guarantee you’ll win your bet, but it will guarantee you won’t needlessly pay juice thanks to +100 spreadlines and totals on tonight’s title tilt.

What does this mean for the average bettor? Users looking to win $100 will likely risk $110 to do so, but PointsBet is waving that fee, so they will only have to risk exactly what they want to win. More experienced sports bettors know that over time juice adds up, so be sure to take advantage of this offer, along with their Make it Rain promo, which will pay you $3 for every three-pointer your team hits (minimum $100 bet).

PointsBet is also offering a $50 free bet with no deposit and two risk-free bets up to $1,000 when you use code BROADLINES.

As for our thoughts on the game, be sure to check out our complete Texas Tech-Virginia Championship Game betting guide before locking in your plays.

PointsBet NJ Updates Their App To Include Face ID and Touch ID

Kyle Scott - April 4, 2019

PointsBet NJ today announced an update that will bring Face ID and Touch ID to their iOS app, along with pick-your-own bet options and cage deposits.

Face ID

One of the more frustrating aspects of online sports betting in New Jersey is the constant need to log in to an app. This isn’t a feature of any particular sportsbook– rather it’s a function of regulatory requirements to assure apps aren’t being used by minors, among other security concerns.

With that level of security, however, comes the frustration of having to log in to an app you may have just used 20 minutes earlier. Face ID and Touch ID tools radically speed of this process – as anyone who uses it with a banking app knows – and now PointsBet will be able to do the same.

After you update the app and then sign in, you will be prompted if you would like to use a pin and Face ID. If you select yes to both of these options, you will then be able to use those methods to log in in the future.

 

Name A Bet

Now there is a “Name A Bet” tab which compiles markets from potential bets submitted by users to PointsBet. You can contact them through Twitter (@pointsbetusa) to offer up action, and they may choose to give you odds on it, which you can find under this tab in the app.

This is a really cool feature if there is something you want to bet on but don’t see it offered. Simply ask PointsBet and they may give you custom odds.

 

Cage deposits

You can now do Meadowlands cage deposits and withdraws at PointsBet’s Meadowlands window. This is a big deal for those who have trouble making deposits or withdraws.

 

Improvements to payments screen

This is a bit more of a nebulous update, but anything to improve upon the deposit experience is welcomed. This has been a sticking point in New Jersey as some credit cards and banks don’t want to allow gambling transactions. PointsBet is doing their best to move the ball forward in this regard.
