The Best New Jersey Sportsbook Promos This Weekend

BWanksCB - December 8, 2018

If you still haven’t gotten in on New Jersey’s legal sports betting action, now is a great time to check out the various promos some of the best betting apps are offering this weekend – just be sure to hit the “bet now” button or links to take advantage of these deals, as some of them are exclusive to our audience.

For those of you in Pennsylvania, PA sports betting is coming soon.

FanDuel Sportsbook

fanduel sportsbook review

FanDuel is absolutely bringing the heat this season with generous holiday promotions. As always, new users get a $500 risk-free first bet.

Here’s how it works: new users will get a site credit worth up to $500 if they lose their first bet. Losses are refunded into accounts within 72 hours. Quite literally, FanDuel is giving users a no-risk, can’t-lose opportunity just for signing up.

As football fans know, NFL games are often a tale of two much different halves. It’s always a tough pill to swallow when a bet that looks good early goes bad late. Take some of the sting out of the heartbreak with NFL Halftime Insurance. Just place a moneyline wager on any NFL team this weekend, and if your bet is winning at halftime but goes on to lose late, you will receive a refund in site credit of up to $25.

Similarly, pro basketball bettors can take advantage of FanDuel’s NBA OT Insurance. Don’t fall victim to excruciating overtime losses. Bet the moneyline on any NBA game, and if your bet loses, get up to $25 of your wager back in site credit.

If you’re looking to hit a bigger payout and want to try your hand at a parlay, then FanDuel’s December Football Parlay Insurance and December Basketball Parlay Insurance are for you. Place a four-leg football or basketball parlay. If three legs of your wager hit, but one is a  dud, FanDuel will refund your parlay in site credit up to $25.

DraftKings Sportsbook

There are plenty of fun and unique promos to take advantage of this weekend with DraftKings Sportsbook.

On Sunday, Philadelphia’s season is on the line when the Birds look to avenge their 27-20 Week 10 loss to Dallas. A lot has changed since that first meeting. The defending Super Bowl champs now find themselves on the ropes in a must-win spot, reprising the familiar role of the underdog.  While the stakes couldn’t seemingly be any higher in this pivotal division showdown between bitter rivals, our partners at DraftKings Sportsbook are upping the ante with a 3x Profit Boost for those who sign up by using our link and bet on the Birds to take down Dallas.

Your Complete Eagles and Cowboys Betting Preview

BWanksCB - December 7, 2018

The NFC playoff picture is a hot mess, but for the Eagles, things are pretty simple. Beat the Cowboys, move into first-place atop the NFC East, and live to fight for a division championship down the stretch. Lose and it’s over. Yeah, the Eagles wouldn’t be mathematically eliminated with a second loss to Dallas in five weeks, but they would need to run the table against a brutal schedule, while the Cowboys would need to lose all three of their remaining games. It’s hard to imagine either of those scenarios playing out, and the numbers back it up.

According to the New York Times Playoff Simulator, the Eagles’ odds of winning the division increase from approximately 19% to 44% with a win. Those odds drop to 1% with a loss– so it’s essentially a must-win spot for Philly as it reprises the familiar underdog role that fueled its Super Bowl run a season ago. Can they get in done in Dallas? Let’s take a look.

The action

The Eagles opened almost across the board as a 4-point underdog, but some sharp action kicked them to 3.5 earlier this week. The public likes the favorite, with 62% of the point-spread tickets backing the Cowboys. The money, however, backs the Birds, with 52% of the money on the underdog. That suggests the big money bettors like the Eagles right now.

Bonus: First deposit matched up to $250

Minimum Deposit: $10

SugarHouse Sportsbook

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

So where’s the value? As of this morning, those looking to take the Eagles against the spread should head to SugarHouseSportsbook or DraftKings Sportsbook and grab them at +3.5 (-114). Those that like the Cowboys can get them for the optimal price at FanDuel Sportsbook at -3.5 (+105). Moneyline bettors that want to take a shot on the Eagles can get them for the best value at BetStars for +155. In terms of the total, it’s set at 44 and -110 on both the over and under.

Of course, if you’re a new user and like the Eagles outright, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering new users a 3x Profit Boost on winning bets backing the Eagles (exclusive, use this link to get that offer).

Bonus: first bet matched up to $200

DraftKings Sportsbook app

DraftKings Sportsbook is available as a web-based interface and through iOS and Android apps. While they were the first out of the gate for legal US sports betting, they now face competition from many sites, including FanDuel Sportsbook, SugarHouse Sportsbook, BetStars NJ and others. How do they stack up and what other promos and bonuses does DraftKings Sportsbook offer? Let’s take a closer look.

Review

DraftKings Sportsbook is all-around one of the best legal sports betting apps. Period. While they got some early attention for "expensive" lines, the truth is all legal sportsbooks will be slightly more expensive than the methods bettors are used to since more costs are associated with regulated entities. Their interface is not perfect, but it's clean and usable and instantly familiar to casual and experienced bettors alike. They accept all expected deposit options, like credit card and PayPal, but lack some of the more advanced methods offered by SugarHouse Sportsbook. Overall, DraftKings offers a great sports betting app, which is available for both iOS and Android.

DraftKings Sportsbook December 2018 update

Now that we’ve gotten a chance to see what competitors would offer in legal US sports betting, it’s clear that DraftKings and FanDuel, as expected, are the leaders in the space.

The New Jersey DGE unveiled September betting numbers, and the results from DraftKings and FanDuel far outpace the competition.

DraftKings, operating under the “Resorts Digital” license, earned $8,505,940, compared to the $7,230,022 earned by Meadowlands Racetrack, which is a combination of FanDuel’s online and in-person sportsbook. Having already had a robust customer base, along with brand recognition, has positioned DraftKings to lead in the sports betting space.

 

DraftKings Sportsbook promo code

Get your first best matched up to $200

This is the main promotion or bonus DraftKings has been running.

How does it work?

Here’s the fine print from DraftKings:

If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER.

*First bet matched up to $200. Free bet must be used within 30 days of first bet. Free bet amount is not included in any returns or winnings. Free bet is also not redeemable for cash, non-transferable, and non-refundable. Promo ends 12/10/18..

In short, only your first bet is matched and it has to be placed within 30 days of signing up. And like most other sportsbook offers, there is a play-through requirement, meaning you have to wager the winnings from the free bet. Pretty standard stuff.

This is a solid offer, but a bit more restrictive than a “deposit bonus,” which many other sites are offering, since you have to use it all on one game rather than spread it out across a series of bets. From my perspective, the deposit bonus compels more engagement and seems like a stickier offer to keep customers coming back.

 

Odds boost

We were briefly given an excuse 3x Philly odds boost to offer to our readers. This allowed you to bet the Eagles as a favorite and get paid out 3-to-1 if they won. This was available only for the first two weeks of the season, against the Falcons and Buccaneers, and it not currently offered.

 

Full review

Overview

The DraftKings Sportsbook, which was developed by an in-house team and said to be in the works for over a year, is a full-featured online sportsbook backed by the biggest brand in US gaming, operating under the Resorts Casino license New Jersey online sports betting. Out of the gate, DraftKings Sportsbook offers a wide, almost staggering array of sports to bet on – Super Kupa Turkey, anyone? – a clean, modern interface, and a jaw-dropping live ticket option that adds a layer of complexity (and fun) to almost every traditional bet. At the moment, DraftKings Sportsbook – or, DK SportsBook – offers team-based live betting with a significant number of in-play props and lines. Odds, which can be expressed as traditional Vegas-style odds or decimal-based figures, are, thus far, on-par with other legal sports betting operators. We recommend it as one of the top sports betting apps.

 

Getting started with DraftKings Sportsbook

Get ready to have your location checked early and often. This is not a DraftKings-specific thing, but something all legal online sportsbooks have to do. Geo-location is the technology that enables state-based betting, and so DraftKings Sportsbook will check your location upon launch, when adding funds, and anytime you leave the app for a few minutes (we don’t know the exact limit here, but it’s not very long). If you do try loading the app from outside of New Jersey, this is the message you’re greeted with:

draftkings sportsbook restricted location

Again, after listening to regulators at the East Coast Gaming Congress in Atlantic City, this location warning will likely be featured in some capacity in all online sportsbooks. The location check seems to be reliable. I was sitting at Liberty Hall in Lambertville along the border and only one time (out of around 10 attempts) did I briefly get this message before the GPS rightfully placed me in New Jersey.

This sort of geo-location monitoring is our new betting overlord, and we should learn to love it.

 

Funding your account

Adding funds is pretty much the same as it is with the DraftKings’ daily fantasy app— hit the plus button, choose your funding method, and get going. As for minimums and limits, DraftKings requires only a $5 initial deposit and bet minimums are under $1, so you can play on any budget level.

You can also choose to allow DraftKings Sportsbook to use your daily fantasy funds, both for your initial deposit and on an ongoing basis:

draftkings sportsbook add funds

Once funded, you’re ready to bet. Winnings are placed back into your account promptly. We’ll have more information on this as we use the app more, but unlike offshore sportsbooks, you don’t have to worry about getting your money out.

 

Betting

draftkings sportsbook home screen

Upon entering the home screen, you’re greeted by a user-friendly view of the requisite promotional banners, quick links, and available traditional bets with beginner-friendly wording like “who’s going to win?” and “who will cover the spread?” for moneyline and traditional spread bets, respectively. There’s obviously a focus on the recreational bettor from the main screen, but it makes sense for onboarding new sports bettors— DraftKings Sportsbook also offers a quick start guide. What’s more, these bets are reportedly tailored to the individual users. DraftKings will actually use your daily fantasy data and serve you up related bets. For example, if you have a DFS lineup stacked with Yankees, you might be presented with the over-under on the Yankees game on your home screen.

Once you’re into the app, the options go much, much deeper and cater to the experienced bettor. This is a good approach – cater to the masses, but leave enough options for experienced gamblers – and one that DraftKings will undoubtedly refine and optimize on an ongoing basis.

 

Available sports

If you were wondering if DraftKings Sportsbook would be limited to only traditional sports and major leagues, don’t. They take action on everything. As of launch, they offer betting on:

Baseball

Basketball

Boxing

Cricket

Darts

Football

Golf

Hockey

MMA

Motorsports

Soccer

And it’s not just the most popular leagues. Here’s a list of all the soccer leagues they offer action on:

draftkings sportsbook soccer

I’m just kidding– that’s one of six pages of soccer leagues.

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere… and there’s a kickoff for you to bet on.

DraftKings Sportsbook doesn’t yet offer esports betting, however. But DraftKings says it does want to offer action on more vents, including non-sports events.

 

Types of bets

Once into your betting options, DraftKings Sportsbook offers all of the action that you would expect:

Spread

Moneyline

Total

Alternate lines

Futures

Lines are clearly defined with odds in bright green. Placing your bet is as easy as tapping what you want since available action is smartly arranged as tiles to make them obvious touch-targets:

draftkings sportsbook placing bet

This is a good way to list available bets. Some other sites and offshore books feature a list-based or rigid menu approach, and we think DraftKings Sportsbook makes the best use of available space as a mobile-first platform. There’s a lot of information to impart, and they do it well, though we could occasionally do with larger fonts and buttons— users would innately know to scroll to see more options.

If there’s one nitpick we have, it’s that DraftKings tries to put too much information onto the screen at once. There’s no doubt a balance to be had, and it’s something all online sports betting apps will seek to find in the early going.

We dig DraftKings Sportsbooks’ “confirm bet” overlay. After choosing your intended bet, a small box slides up and gives you large-touch-target (thank you!) buttons to choose your wager amount and a big, friendly green button that says “LET’S GET IT, HOLMES!” Actually, it says “place bet,” but close enough.

You also have the option to add bets for a parlay.

Here’s how it looks IN ACTION:

Slick.

 

Live betting

The real growth area for mobile sports betting is prop bets and live betting, so we’re going to combine them into one section.

Out of the gate, DraftKings offers your typical props (read more about props in our how to bet on sports page), but will also offer bets on DraftKings daily fantasy totals for players. That is a really, really interesting hybrid between DFS and betting and a way to bring a traditional DFS player over into a sportsbook.

But the live betting is where it’s at, both for DraftKings Sportsbook and the mobile sports betting industry as a whole. DraftKings excels at it right out of the gate.

draftkings sportsbook live betting

In our testing, we were given live betting options for baseball to bet on things like run line, hits, totals, extra innings, and more, some on a inning basis. DraftKings says it will offer bets on whatever data is readily available, though some sports have more catching up to do in this regard— baseball, they say, lags behind some other sports with the speed of its data.

But where things really get interesting is with DraftKings’ live bet ticket, which allows you to exit certain bets before their completion. They call this option “cash out.” So, if you’re winning a bet and want to lock in a profit, you can do so (albeit at a slightly lower rate), or you can exit a bet you’re losing to recoup at least a portion of it.

This fundamentally changes the way you will bet on sports, point blank period. It allows bettors to hedge against themselves, protect downside risk, and also lock-in profit.

Now, to be clear, sometimes the upside risk in betting is worth it. In fact, you inherently have to take risk to be successful at betting, so you’ll undoubtedly want to be judicious about using the live ticket feature. But still, it’s crazy fun and in effect turns every bet into a live bet. Really cool.

 

Play limits

draftkings sportsbook player limits

One things DraftKings makes prominent in its app – we’re uncertain whether this a requirement of the DGE – is a bunch of safe play features.

There are three of them.

Player Limits: allows you to limit your deposits or spending on a day, week or month basis.

Self Exclusion: allows you to literally ban yourself from using the app for a set period of time that you determine.

Cool Off: allows you to prevent yourself from depositing or placing any bets for a set period of time, though you will still have access to the app.

All three of these features are impressive and useful, for everyone.

Industry officials are well aware that self-policing to prevent possible mis-use is necessary for legal sports betting to grow and succeed in the country. Features like this are welcome and commendable.

 

DraftKings history

DraftKings was established in 2012 by co-founder Jason Robbins, Matt Kalish, and Paul Liberman. Robbins remains the company’s CEO. It was part of a wave daily fantasy sites that launched after 2010 and quickly became one of the top products in the field. A year later, DraftKings received an investment from Major League Baseball. That same year they also bought Draft Street, a daily fantasy competitor, and retained some of its NY-based employees. They subsequently struck deals with other leagues, teams, and ESPN.

In 2015, they received an investment from FOX Sports, Kraft Group, and others. It was at this point they, along with FanDuel, begin advertising MASSIVELY in the US and dominated sports commercial breaks. The practice caught the attention of regulators, which very much  put the entire industry in doubt.

As a result, in 2016, DraftKings and FanDuel struck a deal to merge, but that was abandoned in 2017 due to a series of legal issues and costs surrounding an FTC charge that the combined companies would form a monopoly. Around this time, DraftKings began building out its sportsbook technology in anticipation of legalization in the US. They became the first company to launch a sportsbook app following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn a 1992 law that effectively banned sports wagering every but Nevada. They are now the leader in the fledgling space.

 

DraftKings Sportsbook NJ

DraftKings Sportsbook first launched its app in New Jersey on August 1 as part of an invite-only trial period, which lasted five days. On August 6, it became available to the general public through a sign up link offering to match your first bet up to $200, a promotion which is ongoing and runs through the end of October. There is no promo code needed, and the offer seems to be good for all new users. DraftKings also offered a free $2 bet to users from its trial period.

 

Updates

DraftKings Sportsbook released a 1.3.1 update in the iOS App Store on September 7. Though no specifics were given, it seems the update addressed some early issues surrounding deposits and other small bugs. Thus far, it averages 4.8 stars in the App Store.

 

Overall

DraftKings Sportsbook is compelling right out of the gate, and will undoubtedly improve over time. It offers action on a significant number of sports and leagues, with compelling live betting options. The app is, expectedly, clean and modern and works well with few bugs, which is incredible for a 1.0 release of any app. Being able to link your daily fantasy account with the sportsbook is an added bonus.

Need to Know Betting Info for Saints-Cowboys

BWanksCB - November 29, 2018

It will be a battle for NFC SUPREMACY when the first-place Cowboys (I hate everything) and Saints kick off tonight in Dallas. Eh, supremacy is probably an oversell on the Cowboys, but this game carries significant playoff implications for both teams as New Orleans tries to strengthen its grip on the conference’s top seed, while Dallas looks to further distance itself from Philadelphia and Washington in a weak NFC East. They can do so by knocking off what appears to be the NFL’s most dangerous team.

Eagles fans will be locked in on this one, rooting hard for a Dallas loss that would open the door for a three-way tie atop the division should the Eagles beat the Redskins at home on Monday night. While that subplot alone creates plenty of intrigue, this much-hyped prime time game featuring two public betting darlings figures to draw a ton of action, so let’s take a look at some need-to-know information ahead of it.

The matchup

Here’s a quick trivia question: Can you name the NFL teams that have covered 10 consecutive games against the spread dating back to 2003? You can’t—because there are none. Only two teams since that season have covered nine in a row, and both teams failed to cover its next game. The Saints, a squad that has bulldozed opponents and the bank accounts of those bold enough to bet against them since Week 3, will attempt tonight to breakthrough and extend their ATS streak to double-digits.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys find themselves in unfamiliar territory as a 7-point home underdog. The last time Dallas was a touchdown or more underdog at home came back in Week 8 of the 2015 season when they hosted the Patriots. That one didn’t go so well for the home team, as the Cowboys were steamrolled in a 30-6 loss. In fact, this spot has historically been unkind to Dallas. The last four times the Cowboys were an underdog of seven or more at home they lost the game outright.

If Dallas is to reverse that trend, its defense, which is allowing a stingy 19.4 points per game, will need to slow down a Saints offense that has eclipsed 40 points on six different occasions and 30 points nine times through 11 games, so they’ll have a tall order in front of them tonight. Despite its stellar overall play, the Cowboys defense has allowed opposing offenses to complete 44% of third down conversions (29th in the league), while opposing quarterbacks have completed 69.1% of their pass attempts (28th). That’s a recipe for disaster against a Saints offense that is converting 47% of their third down opportunities (6th) and completing a league-best 76% of their pass attempts. Just how good has this team been? Relatively speaking, the Falcons did a respectable job keeping the Saints in check on Thanksgiving night…and still surrendered 31 points and, frankly, were never really in the game. Continue Reading

Your Complete Betting Guide and Preview of “The Match: Tiger vs. Phil”

Philip Keidel - November 20, 2018

After a full day of football to be thankful for on Thursday, golf will take center stage on Friday with the highly anticipated head-to-head match between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas. Naturally, there’s quite a bit of buzz surrounding the match given the immense popularity over the past two-plus decades of these two highly accomplished golfers. Adding to the intrigue of the event are the high stakes wagers the two plan to make throughout the course of the match, and the betting odds available to the general public. Two of the sport’s legends in a one-on-one setting, talking trash and recklessly throwing around thousands of dollars?

Sign. Me. Up.

 

THE BETS

Note: All information is as of 3:00 p.m. Tuesday.

The Winner

Woods enters as a strong favorite. He is currently -230 to win outright at DraftKings, 888sport and Play SugarHouse. If you’re looking on the best value on Woods, it’s at BetStars NJ and FanDuel where Woods is only -200 to win.

Those looking to back Mickelson should know that there’s more variance on his value. DraftKings, SugarHouse, and 888sport each are offering Mickelson at +175. Given BetStars’ favorable odds on Woods, their conservative +163 offering on Mickelson is understandable. FanDuel checks in with Mickelson at +165.

First Hole

Those looking for some quick action can wager on the result of the first hole at DraftKings, SugarHouse, and 888sport where Woods is +225, Mickelson +275, and a tie is -110.

Front 9

DraftKings, SugarHouse, and 888sport are offering up odds on the first nine holes. Both books list Woods at -121, Mickelson +188, and a tie at +400.
