The 2021-22 NBA season tips off Tuesday at 7:30 p.m ET on TNT with a game between the Nets and Bucks, followed by the Lakers and Warriors. In the leadup, NBA sports betting bonus offers have sprung up across several online sportsbooks. Here are some of the best deals available now:

DraftKings Sportsbook – NBA $2 Per Point

Place a select $50 wager on Opening Night of the NBA and get $2 toward a free bet for every point your superstar scores. The promo is limited to the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors game, and the superstar is either LeBron James or Stephen Curry. For example, if you bet the Lakers, and LeBron puts up 20, you receive a $40 free bet – even if the Lakers lose.

The qualifying bet must be a full-game moneyline wager with odds -250 or longer. As of Monday, DraftKings lists the Lakers moneyline at -165 and Warriors +145, so either bet would qualify. Additional T&Cs apply. 

Caesars Sportsbook – NBA Super Boost + Odds Boosters

Caesars Sportsbook is offering an NBA Super Boost on the Lakers vs. Warriors game. The odds increase to +100 for a two-leg parlay: LeBron to score over 15.5 points and Lakers to win. The max bet is $25, and the promo is available in all states where Caesars Sportsbook is live except Tennessee.

Additional odds boosters at Caesars Sportsbook for Opening Night:

  • +150 Giannis, Durant, Harden, and Middleton to each score 20 or more in the Nets-Bucks game.
  • +300 LeBron and Curry to each score at least 29.5 points.
  • +400 Russell Westbrook ‘over’ 49.5 combined points, assists, and rebounds in Lakers win.
  • +425 odds on Bucks and Warriors to both win.
  • +750 James Harden Triple-Double in Nets win.
  • +6000 James Harden 2022 Regular-Season Scoring Leader.

Max bet is $100 for all NBA odds boosts. Additional T&Cs apply.

FanDuel Sportsbook – $150 New User Deal + Risk-Free Parlay For All Members

New members can forgo the standard welcome bonus at FanDuel Sportsbook (risk-free bet up to $1,000) and instead go for this special NBA deal:

  • Bet $2, Win $150 on any NBA team to win on October 19 or 20. That’s +7500 odds on your choice of winning team, so it’s probably smart to go for what you think is most likely rather than your favorite squad.

All members at FanDuel Sportsbook can place a risk-free same game parlay, up to $10 back. The promotion applies to any single-game NBA parlay with at least three legs. Opt-in required. Additional T&Cs apply.

More NBA Sports Betting Bonus Offers

Many online sportsbooks offer a new member welcome bonus, and all those deals can become NBA sports betting bonus offers. For example, DraftKings Sportsbook gives new signups a $50 free bet with a $5 deposit when they use our exclusive link. That free bet can be used on most NBA lines at DraftKings, and members can get an additional 20% deposit-match up to $1,000. T&Cs apply.
