FanDuel Sportsbook PA Betting Update August 21: Phillies-Red Sox, Eagles, College Football Action

Bob Wankel - August 21, 2019

Here’s your FanDuel Sportsbook PA betting update for Wednesday, August 21.

The sports calendar is providing bettors with tons of great action to get in on at PA online sportsbooks. The Phillies look to finish off a two-game sweep of the defending World Series champion Red Sox tonight with Drew Smyly on the hill.

As for the Eagles, they will line up against the Baltimore Ravens in their final home preseason game tomorrow night before a final tune-up at MetLife Stadium against the Jets next week.

In years past, the third preseason game typically served as the primary dress rehearsal for Week 1, but Eagles head coach Doug Pederson seems content to play it safe by resting most of his starters. Expect to see plenty of Clayton Thorson in this one.

And finally, 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.

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.

Here’s your FanDuel Sportsbook PA betting update for Thursday, August 15.

It’s Hittin’ Season?

In baseball action, the Phillies exploded for 11 runs, and all nine starters had at least one hit in their blowout win over the Cubs last night.

Welcome back, Charlie Manuel.

Tonight, the Phillies will look to make it a clean three-game sweep of the Cubs, which would give the team its first three-game winning streak since July 21-24.

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

It will be Drew Smyly (2-6, 6.96 ERA) making his fifth start for the Phillies against Chicago’s Yu Darvish (4-6, 4.43 ERA).

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.

Here are the current Eagles-Jaguars odds at SugarHouse Sportsbook:

Phillies Betting Preview: Nola and Hamels Square Off

Bob Wankel - August 14, 2019

It will be 2008 World Series MVP Cole Hamels squaring off against Aaron Nola tonight at Citizens Bank Park as the Phillies try to win back-to-back games for the first time this month. Charlie Manuel will also be back in the Phillies’ dugout in his first game as the team’s new hitting coach. It will be just like old times, and it will also be one of the first big-time Phillies games to bet on since PA online sports betting went live last month.

Can the Phillies secure what’s been a recently elusive series victory? Let’s get into it. But first:

FanDuel Sportsbook PA is live just in time for the start of football season, but why wait for Week 1 kickoff when you can bet on baseball?

Premier League Betting Value Plays at PA Sportsbooks

Philip Keidel - August 9, 2019

The Premier League returns today after a short summer break and PA online sports betting is ready for it.

For years, the Premier League billed itself as the “greatest league in the world” only to hear chuckling and derision from serious world football followers who noted that the English teams regularly came up short when it mattered against the powerful European clubs (Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, etc.).

Well, those days are over. Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final last season – and neither of those clubs could beat Manchester City for the Premier League title. It is now very hard to argue that any league is better than the Premier League, at least in terms of the clubs at the top.

Odds are from FanDuel Sportsbook PA. Before we get to the plays, be sure to take advantage of FanDuel Sportsbook’s $500 risk-free bet for new users.
