DraftKings Sportsbook Sees Big Winners As Lakers Cost NJ Sports Betting Players

As college basketball heats up and March Madness 2019 gets underway, DraftKings Sportsbook saw some big winners this past week; that is until the Lakers-Suns matchup cost NJ online sports betting players another potential win. DraftKings was awesome enough to provide us with some of its week’s biggest winners, as well as the amount of bets put on the Lakers in the team’s crushing loss to the Suns. We now know that loss was the beginning of the end for LeBron James and the Lakers.

DraftKings Sports Betting Winners Of The Week

A trio of parlays paid off this week for a few NJ sports betting players on the DraftKings Sportsbook app. One player hit the longest odds of the week on an 11-leg parlay that focused on college basketball and the NBA. In this parlay, the bettor involved made a bold move taking the moneyline as the Raptors took on the Pistons, which saw Detroit pull out the 112-107 victory. That key win among 10 other smart bets saw this bettor take home $2,336.67 on a $10 ticket.

The DraftKing Sportsbook Cash-Out feature came in handy for this upcoming 11-leg parlay that was focused around soccer. After nailing the first 10 legs of this parlay, the bettor cashed out early, leaving a potentially bigger payout on the table. But it was a good thing this bettor did just that because his parlay would have come crashing down as his bet on Liverpool would have lost. Instead of a frustrating loss, this player saw a $254.78 win on a $1 bet!

We can’t discuss big wins of the week at one of the biggest NJ sportsbooks without talking about this $7,500 wager. A NJ online sports betting player decided to create a two-leg hockey parlay, putting $7,500 behind the Lightning and Maple Leafs. This brave bet saw the player take home $12,523.50!

Lakers’ Playoff Hopes Fade As They Cost NJ Sports Betting Players

Last week the Lakers saw the beginning of the end for their playoff hopes as they lost to the lowly Suns, 118-109. If you include Los Angeles’ loss to the Bucks (an understandable defeat,) the team has dropped five straight while also losing Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball for the season. The last time LeBron James missed the playoffs was way back in 2004-2005, his second season in the league. But LeBron isn’t the only one hurting. Check out these betting stats from DraftKings Sportsbook:

Incredibly, the Lakers took on 84% of the bets toward the spread and moneyline, and it could be even worse when you consider parlays. Though some of you may be feeling bad for LeBron (or not,) it feels as though the NJ sports betting world got it worse on March, 2. On the flipside, if you took the Suns, your day may have saw some big wins.
