The era of Kentucky online sports betting is upon us! This weekend, numerous sportsbooks came to the Bluegrass State and started accepting bets on various professional and college-level sports. NFL bettors in Kentucky have a lot to be excited about. This season is in full swing, and Kentucky sports betting sites offer odds on every football game.
Kentucky bettors can claim bonuses at all of our top recommended sportsbooks. With Monday Night Football looming, now is the time to sign up, get a bonus, and place your bets on the Seahawks-Giants game!
BetMGM Kentucky Welcome Bonus
BetMGM’s welcome bonus is the highest dollar amount available to Kentucky bettors. When you sign up and claim the bonus, your first bet will be refunded up to $1,500 if it loses. This bonus scales based on the amount of your first bet.
Don’t want to wager $1,500? I don’t blame you. If you place a bet of $50 and it loses, you’ll get $50 in credits back and the bonus will end. It’s easy for bettors to make this bonus work for them.
The only real downside to the BetMGM bonus is that it does nothing for you if your first bet wins. You could wager $1,000 on the Seahawks, for example. If the Seahawks win, you get the promised payout. That’s a good thing, of course, but your bonus will end there.
Bet365 Kentucky New Player Promo
True to its name, Bet365 Kentucky offers a promo that gets new players $365. Beyond being a delightfully branded offer, it also has incredible value for new players. Sign up, bet $1 or more on any market, and Bet365 will add $365 in betting credit to your account. In terms of sheer value, this is one of Kentucky’s best sports betting bonuses.
If you want to use the bonus on the Monday Night Football game, you have two options. First, you could place your first bet (of $1 or more) on the game to qualify for the bonus, then use the credits for future bets. Alternatively, you could sign up before the MNF game, place your first bet, and use the credits to place wagers on the Seahawks-Giants meetup.
FanDuel Sportsbook Welcome Offer For Kentucky Players
FanDuel offers a similar promo to Bet365. Sign up for FanDuel Kentucky, make a deposit, and bet $5 or more to get $200 worth of bonus bets. Claiming the offer is simple. All you need to do is create your account, deposit, and place that initial bet of $5 or more. FanDuel will credit your account within three days of placing your initial bet.
Note that FanDuel only offers this bonus via mobile. If you try to sign up on a desktop device, it will give you instructions on how to download the app and claim the bonus on your Apple or Android device.
Caesars Sportsbook Bonus
Bet $50 or more at Caesars Sportsbook Kentucky to get $250 in bonus bets. Bet and Get offers are becoming commonplace in the sports betting industry, and Kentucky is a perfect example. Like Bet365 and FanDuel, Caesars is offering a bonus that gives you credits for placing a minimum bet.
The biggest drawback to the Caesars bonus is its barrier to entry. It requires a bet of $50 or more. Compare that to Bet365, which requires only a $1 bet and offers more bonus bets as a reward. Still, Caesars is an excellent platform and the bonus is worth a look for new Kentucky sports bettors.
DraftKings Welcome Bonus
DraftKings is giving Kentucky players a three-part welcome bonus. It includes the following elements:
- Bet $5 or more, get $200 in bonus bets instantly
- Get a $50 bonus bet on your first deposit
- 20% first deposit match up to $1,000
Any one of these bonus elements makes signing up for DraftKings well worth your time. The fact that all three are available makes this a top priority for any Kentucky bettor.
Monday Night Football Preview: Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants
Monday night, the Seattle Seahawks make the cross-country trip to face off with the New York Giants at 6:15 ET. The Seahawks are fresh off 2 wins after a week 1 loss to the Rams.
Last week, Seattle beat the Panthers by 10 points. The week prior, the Seahawks put the Lions to bed in a surprising overtime finish. Meanwhile, the Giants are hoping for a return to form after last week’s trouncing at the hands of the 49ers.
Sportsbooks make this game look like it’ll be a nail-biter. The Seahawks are generally favored…by a measly one-point margin. The moneyline tells a similar story.
At DraftKings, the Seahawks are at -118 while the Giants are at -102. It could go either way.
As of this writing, Giants RB Saquon Barkley’s near future is uncertain. Should he play, he could be the difference-maker for the underdog Giants this week. Without Barkley, I’d give the edge to Seattle in this match-up between two mediocre teams.
