DraftKings Sportsbook in Illinois is offering new users a huge profit boost if they bet $1 on one of the major sports happening this weekend.
Meanwhile, FanDuel Sportsbook is giving new customers a chance to turn $5 into $150 on a select NFL game.
DraftKings and FanDuel are the current market leaders in the Land of Lincoln, and they have some enticing sign-up offers for this wild sports betting weekend. We’re breaking them down below.
Bet $1, Win $100 on Draftkings
This promotion expires on Sunday. What has to happen in order to win that $100?
New users must wager $1 on any game throughout the NFL, NBA, college basketball or college football. They will win $100 in free bets if either team scores a point throughout the contest. The new customer can also bet $1 on UFC 269 and win $100 in free bets if either fighter lands a punch.
The free bet winnings are paid out across four separate free bets of $25.
However, those free bets are only available for seven days. If the four $25 free bets are not used during those seven days, the free play will be voided and the free bets will be lost. There is also one other stipulation that the customer must follow.
The new DraftKings user must deposit at least $5 into their sportsbook account.
Chicago Bulls at Miami Heat
The Bulls hit the road for a 7 p.m. CST tip against the Heat. Both organizations are off to a solid start this season. The Bulls enter this road contest coming off of a 115-92 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Heat will be looking to build off of a 113-104 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Bulls have faired well on the road, having won nine of their 14 matchups, while the Heat are 7-4 at home.
Zach LaVine leads Chicago offensively, totaling nearly 26 points per game (25.9). LaVine is also contributing over five rebounds and four assists per game.
The Heat won the last contest during this season against the Bulls, 107-104.
Bet $5, Win $150 at FanDuel
This promotional offer takes us to the NFL for a matchup with the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns. This offer is only valid for first-time FanDuel Sportsbook users. A new user is given an odds boost of 30/1 for correctly picking which team will win the game.
While DraftKings offers free bets for winning their promotion, FanDuel is offering cash money. Therefore, if the customer correctly picks either the Ravens (8-4) or the Browns (6-6), the user will win $150 in cash and not site credit.
In order to claim this promotional offer, new users must register and make a first-time deposit. However, this deposit will need to be done through the FanDuel app and not on the desktop.
This offer is available from now up until kick-off of the Ravens and Browns game, which is slated to kick off at Noon CST on Sunday, December 12.
Cleveland opened as a -1.5 favorite, but bettors have since seen the line move over two points.
The Browns are fresh off of a bye, as their last game came two weeks ago against the Ravens. Baltimore would win the matchup, 16-10.
The Ravens are coming off of a 20-19 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, as the game was decided by a failed two-point conversion.
