Here are the promo codes and sportsbooks that you can use for NFL Week 1 and NFL Kickoff, this Thursday.
DraftKings promo code for NFL Kickoff
To kick off the NFL regular season, DraftKings is offering a three-part promo for interested sports bettors who sign up for a DraftKings Sportsbook account using the DraftKings promo code link here.

Buffalo Bills vs. Los Angeles Rams preview
Game one of the NFL season takes place on Sept. 8 at 8:15 p.m. Eastern. The Bills are a 2.5-point favorite heading into this game, which has an over/under of 52 points. The Bills are also a -140 moneyline favorite.
The matchup is between the defending Super Bowl champions and this year’s Super Bowl favorite, so we could be seeing this matchup again in February. The Rams have home-field advantage on the same stage where they won the Super Bowl just a few months ago. However, Matthew Stafford has been nursing an elbow injury, which could affect the Rams’ success and game plan. Meanwhile, Josh Allen is aiming to stake a claim as one of the best quarterbacks in football this year, but starting with the Rams will make his job difficult.
