DraftKings Offering Big Odds Boost For NBA Opening Night

DraftKings' bonus for the NBA season-opener will be a slam dunk for new customers.

The 2020-21 NBA season opener is already upon us, after the shortest offseason for the league in recent history. To commemorate the quick turnaround, DraftKings Sportsbook in NJ has a promo for new and existing customers that seems like it can’t miss.

Barring a blowout of epic proportions, DraftKings’ +75 Point Spread seems destined to cash as NBA betting in NJ returns.

Details on the promo for Monday’s NBA season opener slate

Tuesday’s schedule includes two games. The Golden State Warriors visit the Brooklyn Nets at 7 p.m. ET to start the 2020-21 campaign. Then, the first Los Angeles Clippers/Los Angeles Lakers affair of the season tips off at 10 p.m. ET.

Here are the latest odds for NBA games:

If you’ve never made a deposit with DraftKings before, you can take advantage of a bonus for either game. Just deposit at least $5 and opt into the Opening Night: +75 Point Spread for one of the two games. Existing users don’t need to deposit to claim the offer.

Stake either team in the game of your choice. The max bet is $50 for new registrants and $25 for existing users who haven’t made their first deposits yet.

The promo changes the spread to +75 on the game you selected. Meaning, your bet will win unless your team of choice loses by 76 points or more. The promo also boosts the odds to +100, meaning you’ll double your money.

This isn’t the only boosted action DraftKings will offer for the first week of the new NBA season. The holidays could be brighter for first-time depositors as well.

NBA games as Christmas gifts for new DraftKings users

From Dec. 23 through Dec. 30, DraftKings will feature an NBA game each day. On Dec. 25, the calendar includes all five games. This promo is also for first-time depositors only and only available to use once.

After making a deposit of at least $5, pick a team on the moneyline for the featured game. Opt in to the promo by clicking or tapping on the “Boost this game” icon.

The boost takes the moneyline odds on the team of your choice up to +10000. The maximum bet is $1, meaning you’ll collect $100 in profit if you pick the winner correctly.

With these two promos combined, this could be a great week for new customers on DraftKings. Successful bettors are primed to start 2021 off with a nicely funded account for the new year.
