Can you believe it’s already Week 10 of the NFL? What a beautiful nightmare of a season it’s been for my Chicago Bears, who barely eked out a win over the equally bad Carolina Panthers last night. With that behind us, we can now look ahead to NFL Sunday. DraftKings and FanDuel both offer excellent bonuses for new players. Sign up, claim your promotion, and bet on NFL games this weekend.
Check out our DraftKings and FanDuel Sportsbook promo codes.
DraftKings Sportsbook: Up to $1,250 in Bonus Bets
Best part about the DraftKings Sportsbook bonus? Well, the fact that it offers up to $1,250 in bonus bets. The second-best part, though, is that no DraftKings promo code is required to claim it. Simply sign up using our links to get in on the action.
The bonus comes in three parts. Let’s break them down one by one.
First, DraftKings offers a “bet and get” bonus. Place your first wager of $5 or more and you’ll get $200 in bonus bets. The bets are given as eight $25 bonus bets.
Next, DraftKings provides users with a $50 bonus once they make an initial deposit.
The biggest part of the bonus comes as a deposit match. DraftKings will match 20% of your initial deposit up to $1,000. Do the math and you’ll find that the full bonus requires a whopping $5,000 deposit (“Suffering succotash!” to borrow a phrase from Sylvester the Cat). Not to worry, though, because the bonus scales based on your deposit. For example, a $100 deposit would land you a $20 bonus. You’ll get 20% matched no matter what your deposit is; no need to make a huge deposit just to earn the full bonus.
FanDuel Sportsbook: Bet $5, Get $150 if Your Team Wins
Hot dog! The FanDuel Sportsbook bonus is excellent, offering a big payout on a small bet. The only catch? Your team has to win. Bet $5 or more as your first wager, and FanDuel will grant you $150 in bonus bets if you’re successful with our FanDuel promo code. I advise picking the closest bet to a sure thing that you can find to maximize your chances of cashing in.
NFL Week 10 Sunday Game Highlights
Once you’ve got your sports betting bonus in hand, you can use it to place bets on this week’s NFL Sunday games. Here are a few of our most-anticipated matchups.
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
Here’s Johnny! John Harbaugh, that is, leading the Baltimore Ravens in an impressive 7-2 season so far. This week, the Ravens host the Cleveland Browns for an AFC North contest. The Ravens lead the division by two wins while the Browns, Steelers, and Bengals lag behind with identical 5-3 records. Signs are pointing to a Ravens win, and sportsbooks favor the Baltimore team with Lamar Jackson behind center.
DraftKings and FanDuel both offer a 6.5-point advantage to the Browns (Best Live Odds: ), giving Cleveland one touchdown worth of insurance. I’m not sure it’ll be enough, though. The Ravens have won four games in a row, each by at least seven points. The closest game was (surprisingly) a 31-24 victory over the Cardinals. The point? Baltimore has proven its status as a scoring team, and I don’t expect that to change much this week. I like the Baltimore point spread for betting this week.
Houston Texans at Cincinnati Bengals
Rookie Texans quarterback CJ Stroud is like an abominable snowman who refuses to melt despite the constant heat. The 4-4 Texans are something of a mixed bag this season, but Stround continues to show a steady, capable presence behind center. Last week, Stroud led the Texans to a nailbiting hometown victory over the Buccaneers, winning the game 39-37. Stroud threw for 470 yards, including five passing touchdowns.
This week, however, the Texans head north to Cincinnati where they face a Bengals team with ever-increasing momentum. The Bengals had a shaky start this season, losing in quick succession to the Browns and Ravens. The Bengals found their footing over the past few weeks, beating the Bills, 49ers, and Cardinals.
DraftKings gives Houston a 6.5-point spread (Best Live Odds: ), and I think it might be just enough to let Houston cover. The Texans have two losses in the past five weeks, both of them by only two points to the Cardinals and Falcons. Cincinnati will prove a bigger challenge than those opponents, but the rise of CJ Stroud could prove enough to keep it close.
