For new bettors looking to wager for the first time at US sportsbooks, the Super Bowl is a good time to get started.
Two of the biggest sportsbooks are offering boosted Super Bowl odds on the winner for first-time users.
Both DraftKings and FanDuel have Super Bowl LVI specials that pay at 56 to 1 if you bet the Los Angeles Rams or the Cincinnati Bengals to win the game. Here’s how to get these special odds:
Super Bowl promo at DraftKings
This promo is only for new users, and it’s easy to take advantage of the offer. You will have to sign up for an account at DraftKings Sportsbook and fund your account, and then you can wager on the game.
If you win the bet, it will be paid out in the form of seven $40 free bets. Once the free bets are issued, you have seven days to use them.
You can also get the DraftKings deposit bonus alongside this offer. DraftKings offers 20% of your deposit matched as a bonus, up to $1,000.
The Rams are the moneyline favorites at DraftKings at -190, while the Bengals are +160.
Super Bowl promo at FanDuel
This promo for new users is pretty similar to DraftKings, except at FanDuel the promo is paid out in cash instead of free bets. You will have to register a new account and deposit to get the special odds.
The Rams are -200 on the moneyline at FanDuel, while the Bengals are +168.
You could obviously guarantee yourself a win by betting both sides of the Super Bowl, taking the Rams at one sportsbook and the Bengals at the other to guarantee you will win at $280. If you like one side or the other, you could end up with $560 for $10 of wagers if you place the same bet at both sportsbooks.
