NFL Sportsbook Promos and Boosts

1. PointsBet

Lamar Jackson to record 300+ total yards (rushing + passing) and Ravens to win +235. (The first part is about 50/50 to happen, and the second part is about a 62% chance to happen, so this is slightly worth it).

2. Barstool

Darren Waller first TD +1300. (I see this around +1050 with vig so I'm going to take a half-unit $12.50 flier on it).

3. BetRivers

Place $50 bet on Raiders spread or ML, get $7 free bet and 7% NFL profit boost for every TD they score. (Note: I'm not placing this bet, but if you wish to pick the Raiders this is a good way to get value).

4. DraftKings

Bet $25 single-game parlay, get $25 free bet if it loses. (Opt in required; assume most people have done this already).

5. Caesars

Bet $100 on NFL, get free NFL jersey. (A no-brainer if you intend to buy a jersey at some point).

September 12th

NFL Sportsbook Promos and Boosts

1. DraftKings

20% profit boost on every game. (You can use these boosts on any picks—spread, over/under, props, etc.—and it's highly advised to use them if you're betting on these games at all).

Aaron Rodgers or Jameis Winston to complete a pass over 49.5 yards +175. (Don't know how to calculate fair value but I have visions of a Marquez Valdes-Scantling go route).

Sam Darnold to throw for over 250.5 yards +115. (Opt in required; fair value is +100).

Bet $25 on a single-game parlay, get a $25 free bet if it loses.

2. PointsBet

Bet $20 on Rams-Bears, get a $20 free bet if it loses.

Most NFL spread lines have Vig removed and are +100.

Zach Wilson to throw more passing yards than Sam Darnold +135. (Darnold's o/u is 250.5 and Wilson's 234.5, which is much lower than a 35% difference so this is worthwhile).

3. FanDuel

Risk-free $10 bet. (I used mine already, but if you haven't this is a no-brainer).

Bet $20 on NFL single game parlay, get $10 bonus if it wins or loses. (Pick: Saints-Packers over 49.5, Davante Adams and Robert Tonyan to score a TD +645).

4. Caesars

Bet $100 on NFL games, get a free NFL jersey.

5. BetRivers

Bet $50 on US Open Final, get $10 NFL free bet. (Good play if you're going to bet US Open anyway).

6. Barstool

Chiefs and 49ers to win, Eagles +7.5, and Cardinals-Titans over 41.5 +300. (Fair value about +255).

$5 bet on Bears +7.5 boosted to +1000. (Opt in required).

September 11th

Martin Truex Jr. to finish in the top three in Federated Auto Parts 400 Salute to First Responders +250. (Fair value is not easily calculable but this bet is +130 on Rivers/Barstool and so it feels worth a flier).

Place a $20 4-leg college football parlay, get $10 back whether it wins or loses. (Opt in required; pick: Wyoming, Iowa State, Kentucky and NC State all to win +449).

FanDuel

Rays and Brewers both to win +210. (Fair value is about +196).

Place a $20 4-leg college football parlay, get $10 back whether it wins or loses. (Opt in required; final parlay total must be +400 or greater; the way to optimize this is to do several favorite money-lines in the vicinity of -200).

September 9th

1. DraftKings

Tampa Bay +73 -110. (Opt in required; bet $50 ... this is literally free money).

Bet a $25 single-game parlay, get a $25 free bet if it loses. (Opt in required).

5. BetRivers

Bet $50 on Bucs/Cowboys spread, get a $6 free bet for every TD pass the QB you bet on throws. (If you are betting this game with a straight spread, this is the most optimal way to do it; I'm not making a pick myself here but Bucs are better math because Tom Brady has a higher TD pass over/under).

5. Barstool

Mike Evans over 63.5 receiving yards, Dak Prescott over 287.5 passing yards and Bucs to win +450. (Fair value is around +400).

Bears +7.5 vs. Rams boosted to +1000, $5 bet. (Opt in required).

Five 10% US Open profit boosts.

3. Barstool

Nathan Eovaldi, Freddy Peralta and Adam Wainright all to throw 4+ strikeouts +100. (No direct comparisons for fair value but this is a good number based on their respective over/under odds).

September 7th

Mets and Astros both to win +200. (Fair value is about +163).

3. PointsBet

Gerrit Cole to throw 8+ strikeouts and Yankees to win +150. (Can't make a straight fair value comparison because Cole's over/under is 8.5 strikouts, but given correlation, plus Yankees' fair value to win being about -210, I like this bet).
