NJ sports betting operators like FanDuel Sportsbook are ready to welcome the starving hordes back with open arms. The seasons for NFL and college football have already kicked off, and Major League Baseball playoffs are in full swing.
To celebrate the return of America’s pastime and America’s passion, FanDuel Sportsbook is about to roll out some NJ sports betting exclusive promos.
Starting this season, both the NFL and MLB playoffs will be live at FanDuel Sportsbook. And there are a few crackers that should already get your adrenaline pumping.
Set for the 3rd of October 2018, FanDuel Sportsbook will be taking your bets from Tuesday all the way up to the starting time of the game at 20:00 (Eastern Time).
Oakland Athletics, who are enjoying their best season since 2002, face the Yankees with a record of 97-65, while the team from NY, who ended up as the runners-up in AL East with record of 100-62 setting them up nicely to give them their best record in 9 years and the third best record in all of baseball.
FanDuel Sportsbook has put the New York Yankees down for a win with a “Risk-Free Bet”. If the Yankees lose the contest, FanDuel Sportsbook will pay up to $50 to any punters who backed them to win. Bets will not be taken after the start of Wednesday’s game at 20:00 (Eastern Time).
With the NL Wild set for Tuesday, the next promo will involve the AL Wild Card to compete in the postseason.
Thursday sees the start of the best-of-5 series kick off. Both sides are as still TBD as we wait to see who will make it through.
Last Monday had Milwaukee Brewers facing the Chicago Cubs. The Brewers emerged victoriously and were crowned as NL Central winners while the NL West title went to the LA Dodgers who beat nearest rivals the Rockies of Colorado and rounded out the postseason roster. The Cubs will be at home to the Rockies as they battle for the NL Wild Card, with the victor then going on to the NL Division series against Brewers.
The Dodgers will next line up against the A-Town Braves in the second NL division series of games. Meanwhile, the AL division kicks of on Friday as the Boston Red Sox will face the winner of the Wild Card and the Astro’s Houston will compete against Cleveland’s Indians.
The Dodgers, meanwhile, face the Atlanta Braves in the other NL Division series. The AL side gets going Friday, as the Boston Red Sox await the Wild Card winner while the Houston Astros play the Cleveland Indians.
To add to the excitement, and ease some of the slower starters with a “Bad Luck” MLB promo, which is set to run during the MLB division series. Punters can choose to place their bets on specific games, money line or even just pre-live.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that FanDuel Sportsbook had decided to focus solely on the MLB and are leaving the NFL to the competition.
Don’t believe for a second that FanDuel Sportsbook has ignored the country’s most popular sport. In fact, the House is giving players a second chance by including a little addition that states:
“Should the choice of the player not be the first to score in the game but does record a TD later, bettors will receive up to $100 back.”
This will apply to all Week 5 games taking place in the NFL and bet will be accepted on game day from 12 noon until the start of the games.
