With some of the industry’s heaviest hitters now live, Kentucky is shaping up to be a great state for sports bettors. Below, we’ll look at the best Kentucky sportsbook promos. Plus, we’ll explore the top college football Week 5 games for Kentucky sports fans.
BetMGM Sportsbook Kentucky Promo
BetMGM calls itself the “king of sportsbooks,” and the welcome bonus certainly lives up to that claim. New bettors get up to $1,500 in bonus bets if their first wager results in a loss. Note that you can only claim this bonus if you didn’t claim the BetMGM pre-launch offer for $100 in bonus bets.
The best part about BetMGM’s bonus is that it can be flexible. Whether you’re a casual bettor or a seasoned veteran, you will be able to shape the bonus to your liking. For example, a new player just getting into the swing of things could bet $50. If that bet loses, the bettor will get $50 in bonus bets. The same goes for a much larger bet. Say you wager $1,000 and lose; you’d get $1,000 back in credits. The only major note here is that the bonus pays up to $1,500 maximum. A $2,000 losing bet, for example, would only return $1,500 bonus credits. This only works on your first bet, and the bonus expires if your first bet wins.
Caesars Kentucky Welcome Bonus
Not to be outdone by its fierce rival, Caesars also offers an excellent Kentucky welcome bonus. New players who sign up and place their first wager of $50 or more will receive $250 in bonus bets. Whether your initial bet wins or loses (and as long as it’s more than $50), you’ll get the $250 in credits.
The added benefit of Caesars Sportsbook is the integration of Caesars Rewards. When you sign up for a Caesars sports betting account in Kentucky, you’ll be automatically enrolled in the rewards program and start earning points and credits as you bet. Perks can be used online or at Caesars properties across the country.
Bet365 Promo for Kentucky Bettors
Bet365 offers a Kentucky sports betting bonus true to its name. New bettors at the site get $365 in Bonus Bets for signing up and betting at least $1. Kentucky is ripe with these “bet and get” deals — both Caesars and FanDuel offer them, too — but Bet365’s is the best. Why? The value. For only $1 in wagers, bettors receive $365 in bonuses. Compare that to Caesars, which requires a $50 minimum bet for fewer bonus bets in return.
Bet365 is renowned for its excellent slate of odds boosts and international markets in addition to the presence of top US sports. For these reasons and its excellent welcome bonus, it’s worth a look for Kentucky sports betting enthusiasts.
FanDuel Welcome Offer
FanDuel had humble beginnings as a Daily Fantasy Sports operator. Now, FanDuel Sportsbook is consistently among the top betting sites in any legal market. Kentucky is no different. FanDuel starts you off right in Kentucky with a bonus worth $200 in bonus bets. Simply sign up as a new user, make your first deposit, and bet $5 or more. Within 72 hours after placing the bet, you’ll get the $200 in credit. This offer is only available in the app. Sign up via mobile to ensure you get your credits.
We like FanDuel in particular for its amazing user experience. The app and desktop site are both easy on the eyes and packed with special features. One highlight is FanDuel’s Same Game Parlay + tool, which allows bettors to combine multiple SGPs into a single mega-bet.
DraftKings Sportsbook Bonus
DraftKings Kentucky is starting off with a bang. The welcome bonus comes in three parts:
- 20% deposit match up to $1,000 (25x playthrough required)
- $50 in bonus bets with a $5+ deposit
- Bet $5, get $200 in bonus bets (issued as eight $25 bonus bets)
Three “No Brainer” offers add to DraftKings’ slate of Kentucky sportsbook bonuses. Among them is a special Univeristy of Kentucky offer. Opt in for the No Brainer promo and you’ll get a one-time use token for a bet on Kentucky to score at least one point. If they do, you double your money. The maximum bet amount will be listed in the promo.
DraftKings offers two other No Brainer bets for new Kentucky users: double your money if a point is scored in the Bengals-Titans game and double your money if a touchdown is scored for the TNF game between the Lions and Packers.
CFB Week 5 Odds Highlights
Kentucky sports betting promos and odds launched just in time for Week 5 of college football. Here’s a look at some games Kentucky bettors might be interested in this week.
Florida Gators vs. Kentucky Wildcats
The 22-seed 3-1 Florida Gators head to Lexington for a bout with the 4-0 Kentucky Wildcats. Florida comes into the match with only one loss so far, a 13-point defeat at the hands of Utah in week 1. The Wildcats, meanwhile, have yet to lose a game, and they’re narrow favorites at most sportsbooks.
Last week, Kentucky QB Devin Leary logged 205 passing yards and a TD alongside the less-than-stellar two interceptions he threw. The run game proved valuable for Kentucky, too, with Re’Mahn Davis snagging two rushing TDs and JuTahn McClain scoring one.
The Cats look to add the Gators to their list of victories, but it’s bound to be close. Bettors in Kentucky can use DraftKings’ No Brainer offer to earn double their wager if a point is scored during the game.
LSU Tigers vs. Ole Miss Rebels
This bout between two football juggernauts headlines the CFB lineup this week. Saturday’s 5 p.m. ET game pits the two 3-1 teams against one another. Sportsbooks predict a tight game, with LSU the slight favorite.
The Tigers staved off Arkansas State in Week 4 by a single field goal, proving LSU can play well under pressure. The Rebels are fresh off a Week 4 loss to Alabama and look to regain their early-season momentum, which kicked off with a 73-7 victory over Mercer.
Many More CFB Week 5 Games to Bet on
Those games are just two among many on the slate for this weekend. Other prime betting matchups include:
- Arkansas State vs. Massachusetts
- South Florida vs. Navy
- Georgia vs. Auburn
- Michigan vs. Nebraska
- Virginia vs. Boston College
