Need To Know Betting Trends For The Eagles and Panthers

BWanksCB - October 21, 2018

After seemingly getting back on track last Thursday night at MetLife Stadium, the Eagles will look to climb over the .500 mark when they host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. The Panthers, who are 1-4 all-time in regular season games played in Philadelphia, are looking for their first road victory of the season, and they will have their work cut out for them if they hope to get it. The Eagles are 17-4 at home, including the postseason, under Doug Pederson and look to avoid back-to-back home losses for the first time since late in the 2016 season.

Panthers at Eagles (-5), Over/Under 45

Everybody knows the Panthers want to run the ball, and they have been successful doing so this season. They come into this game with the NFL’s No. 4 rushing offense (139.4 yards per game) and averaging 5.0 yards per carry. That rushing attack will be tested this week when it goes up against an Eagles defense that’s allowing the NFL’s second-fewest rush yards per game (79.8). While Carolina doesn’t necessarily have a favorable matchup in the ground game, running back Christian McCaffrey figures to pose issues for an Eagles defense that is 20th in Football Outsiders’ DVOA rankings. McCaffrey has amassed 349 yards rushing on 4.9 yards per carry, while also hauling in 34 catches for 238 yards. One other thing to keep an eye on—Jim Schwartz’s unit has been susceptible to allowing chunk plays in the passing game all season long, but Cam Newton enters this contest having only completed two passes that have traveled 20 yards or longer downfield. In fact, Newton is only averaging 6.5 yards per pass attempt, which is 25th in the NFL. The Eagles’ ability to control Carolina’s short to intermediate passing game will likely dictate its ability to get off the field on third downs. The Panthers offense is 21st in the NFL in third down conversion percentage (37.93%), while the Eagles defense has thrived on third downs, limiting opponents to only a 29.49% conversion rate.

On the other side of the ball, Carson Wentz has been excellent since returning to the lineup in Week 4. He’s completing 68.4% of his passes, while throwing for 1,192 yards and eight touchdowns against only one interception. He should have plenty of opportunities to make plays against what has been an inconsistent Carolina defense that has allowed a 65.34% completion percentage and 7.3 yards per pass attempt this season. The Philadelphia ground attack has been moderately successful despite a slew of injuries when Doug Peterson elects to run the football. The Eagles are No. 18 in the NFL in yards per rush (4.2), and No. 14 in yards per game (110.3), and they, too, have a favorable matchup against a Panthers defense that is allowing 4.6 yards per carry this season.

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:

DraftKings Sportsbook has been live in New Jersey for over two full months now and a lot has changed since launch.

NBA Over/Under Wins That You Might Want to Check Out

JoyOnBroad - October 16, 2018

The NBA season is upon us and hope springs eternal for all most fan bases. The sportsbooks aren’t emotionally invested in your teams and don’t care if your first round draft pick is once again shelved to start the season. I, however, take the over/under numbers they set and cross-reference it with the human element: old faces in new places (Melo on the Rockets), moronic trades for watered-down stars (Trae Young isn’t even diet Steph Curry), and guys who will do whatever it takes to get off their current teams (Jimmy Butler and the Wolves). The end result is a list of team win over/unders you can have some confidence in. I’m by no means endorsing wagering money on my musing, but if you decide to wager a couple of cheeseburgers on Atlanta getting under 23.5 wins, have at it, sport.

If only relegation existed

Let’s talk about the aforementioned Atlanta Hawks. They completed a mind-boggling set of moves this off-season. In addition to trading away the #3 overall pick Luca Doncic for #5 overall pick Trae Young and a top-five protected first round pick in 2019, Atlanta sent away former starting PG Dennis Schröder and to the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of a three-way deal with OKC and Philly that also netted the Hawks Justin Anderson and an immediately-waived Carmelo Anthony. As part of that deal, they also gave away Mike Muscala to the Sixers. The Hawks will trot out a starting lineup of Young, overpaid Kent Bazemore, promising Taurean Prince, John Collins, and former Process Sixer Dewayne Dedmon. Jeremy Lin, Villanova’s Omari Spellman, the aforementioned Anderson, and 41-year-old Vince Carter will try to spark a thin bench.

Over/Under:

SugarHouse and DraftKings: 24.5 (Over: +100/Under: -125)

FanDuel: 23.5 (Over: -116/Under: -102)

BetStars: 23.5 (Over: -125/ Under: +100)

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

Code: CROSSINGBROAD

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.

Need to Know Betting Trends and Data for Eagles-Giants

BWanksCB - October 11, 2018

If you would’ve told me three weeks ago that the Eagles would find themselves in a must-win game heading into Week 6, I would have said you were crazy. The Giants? Maybe. But not the Eagles. Yet that’s exactly the situation facing both teams when they take the field at MetLife Stadium tonight. It’s been ugly for both teams lately. The 2-3 Eagles are coming off a sloppy and disappointing 23-21 loss to Minnesota, while the Giants try to bounce back after a walkoff 63-yard field goal sank them in Carolina a week ago.

Can the Eagles right the ship? Can the Giants save their season? Let’s find out by taking a look at what the betting trends and data reveal.

 

Eagles (-3) at Giants, Over/Under 44

It’s hard to imagine the Giants bouncing back and competing after such a crushing defeat last week, but those expecting New York to fold tonight should look to last year’s game with the Eagles in which they lost on a 61-yard field goal as a cautionary tale. The Giants covered the following week as a 2.5-point underdog, as they are tonight at several books, in a 25-23 loss at Tampa Bay. I expect a similar fight this time around.

The Eagles and Giants come in both looking to avoid their third-straight loss. The Eagles haven’t been in this spot since 2016 and were 2-1 ATS in such games that season. Manning, meanwhile has had plenty of experience with losing back-to-back games in his career and is 11-12-1 in such games.

While on the surface, a matchup with the cellar-dwelling Giants would seem to be a welcomed opponent given the Eagles have won 16 of the last 20 matchups between the two teams, including the past three contests. That advantage, however, isn’t as pronounced when measured against the spread lately. Pederson is 3-1 straight-up against the Giants, but only 1-3 ATS as the Eagles failed to cover either of their wins a season ago.

 

Other game trends to know

Backers of the Eagles can take some solace in the Eagles’ 3-0 record straight-up and ATS under Doug Pederson when the Eagles play on Thursday night, including a 24-19 win over the Giants in December of 2016. Across the league, the home team is 13-8-1 ATS on Thursdays dating back to the start of last season, and 4-1 ATS this season. Favorites, meanwhile, are 12-9-1 ATS during the same time frame and are 33-23-2 since the start of the 2015 season. Of all the trends I found during my research, this is perhaps the most convincing.

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, 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.

Need to Know Stats and Betting Trends For Eagles-Vikings

BWanksCB - October 5, 2018

It’s a rematch of last January’s NFC Championship game when Minnesota travels to Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon. Both teams enter the game looking to jump their seasons after an underwhelming start. The Vikings enter having lost two-straight, which is a spot they’ve excelled in ATS under Mike Zimmer, posting a 6-2 record. The Eagles start, meanwhile, can be viewed one of two ways: Last week, they were a 4th-and-15 overtime stop away from improving to 3-1, but are also only a pair of late fourth quarter conversions by the Falcons and Colts away from a winless September. The Eagles will be happy to get back in front of the crowd at Lincoln Financial Field where they are 17-3 at home and 14-6 ATS, including the postseason, under Doug Pederson.

Also of note, the Eagles are 8-1 both straight-up and ATS against the Vikings at home since 1989. The lone loss came back on a Tuesday night in December of 2010 when a blizzard postponed the game two days. Little-known Joe Webb led a stunning Vikings upset as a 14-point underdog which cost the Eagles a first-round bye that season.

 

Vikings at Eagles (-3), Over/Under

The first thing that jumps out when studying this game is just how different the Vikings are on the offensive side of the football. Known as a team that wanted to pound the ball and beat opponents with their defense last season, Minnesota, frankly, hasn’t even tried to run the ball this season. Notably, the Vikings don’t have a single runner with 100 total rushing yards through four games. As a team, they are averaging only 3.5 yards per carry and a league-worst 63 rushing yards per game. Under Jim Schwartz, the Eagles are 5-1 against opponents averaging under 75 rushing yards per game, and 4-2 against the spread.

Making matters worse for the Vikings is that, Dalvin Cook, by far the team’s most dynamic back, is still battling a hamstring injury. He didn’t practice on Thursday and is officially listed as questionable. I wouldn’t expect the ground game to get, uh, off the ground this week, either.

The Eagles defense comes in having allowed an NFL-best 63.8 rushing yards per game and only 255 total ground yards. The Vikings may want to get the running game going in order to take some pressure off a suddenly struggling Eagles secondary, but I wouldn’t count on it happening.

What I would count on, however, is Minnesota offensive coordinator John DeFilippo scheming ways for quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is a lifetime 5-2 ATS against Philadelphia, to exploit what has been a disastrous Eagles secondary. Cornerback Jalen Mills, a consistent target of ire for Eagles fans this season, is among league leaders in both penalties and penalties yardage, and has also given up a handful of big plays. But the secondary concerns extend beyond Mills as Corey Graham struggled a week ago in place of the injured Rodney McLeod. Starting corner Ronald Darby has also been up and down.

Adam Theilen and Stefon Diggs, who are on pace to combine for 268 catches and 3,136 yards through four weeks, should be keeping defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz up at night this week. In order to limit the Vikings’ passing game, the Eagles highly-regarded front four needs to have its best game of the season to date. The home crowd should help. The Philadelphia defense has surrendered only 12.67 points per contest over its past 12 games at home since the start of the 2017 season. It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that six of the last seven games played at The Linc have stayed under the total.

The Eagles should be encouraged by the progress of quarterback Carson Wentz, who is 12-7 ATS when his team is favored and 11-4 ATS at home, after he threw for 348 yards and two touchdowns a week ago. Wentz and the Eagles offense left some big plays on the field against the Titans, but it will have an opportunity to make amends against a Minnesota defense allowing 278 passing yards per game.

Gambling trends: As of late Thursday night, the volume of bets was a 51/50 split with 55% of the money coming in on Minnesota. While the consensus line of Eagles -3 has held steady throughout the week, the over/under has climbed from 44.5 to 46.5 at most sportsbooks. That’s a fairly considerable move. Meanwhile, a preposterous 93% of the total money is currently on the over. You can get some value at FanDuel Sportsbook, which currently has that 46.5 total compared to 46 at SugarHouse Sportsbook and DraftKings.

Trends to know: The Eagles are 7-2 against the Vikings straight-up and ATS since 2001. A rather remarkable trend that I came across is that betting the over while Doug Pederson is the home coach has cashed in only 6 of 20 games. Conversely, it has hit on 15 of 19 games when he is the visiting coach. While the over was only 2-6 in Eagles home games during the 2016 season when its offense was decidedly inferior, it’s worth noting that over plays have still gone only 4-8 since the start of the 2017 season. What’s more, the bets on the over when Mike Zimmer is the visiting coach are only 14-20-1 dating back to the start of the 2014 season.

Prediction: I see a good day for Wentz and the Philadelphia offense. Moreover, I don’t expect Minnesota to run the ball with much effectiveness or frequency. This game feels like it should shape up to easily exceed a relatively modest 46.5 total, but the aforementioned trends are almost impossible to ignore. Over bets have hit only 30% of time in games Pederson has coached at Lincoln Financial Field, and they cash only 41% of the time when Zimmer is on the road. I also like to bet against where the money is, and it is most certainly on the over right now, so as a contrarian play and with the two points of value created by the upward mid-week line movement, I’m on the under here.

If you’re looking to throw down in New Jersey, as I mentioned, FanDuel has the better over-under and they are currently running some cool late-game blown lead promos for football and baseball that are worth checking out. And we also like SugarHouse thanks to their $250 deposit bonus:
