DraftKings has a new NBA Finals promotion out there for basketball fans in Illinois.
There’s no promo code needed for this one, so anyone can get in on the Illinois sports betting action.
DraftKings NBA Finals deal
If betting on the NBA Finals sounds like a good time, then the latest deal from DraftKings is a great place to dip your toes in the water. This promotion is for new users only, so you’ll have to sit this one out if you already have an account with the company.
The sportsbook’s “Bet $5, Get $150” deal is a great way to get your bankroll started.
The promotion is exactly what it sounds like. Just a $5 wager can win you $150 from DraftKings. Those winnings will enter your account as six $25 free bets.
All you have to do to take advantage of the promotion is to sign up for DraftKings Illinois. Once your account is set up, just make your first deposit of at least $5.
After that, you’ll need to wager $5 or more on any NBA Finals game to get the ball rolling. Make sure to place your bet before the start of the game in order to qualify for the deal.
Once your bet is in, you’re all set! You can just sit back and enjoy the action. If your $5 bet wins, then DraftKings will credit your account with $150.
Latest Warriors vs. Celtics odds
The NBA Finals have been a back-and-forth series so far. The Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics are currently tied up with two wins a piece.
Game five is taking place on June 13, but the championship series could end as late as June 19. At this rate, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Finals stretch into six or seven games.
DraftKings has the Warriors as the slight -165 favorites heading into the next matchup of the series. That’s no surprise since the game is taking place in San Francisco.
Illinois oddsmakers also have Golden State as the -130 favorite to win the Finals. That’s no doubt thanks to some monster performances from Steph Curry.
The series could still go either way at this point, so expect another odds shift in the winning team’s favor after game five.
