Boxing has hit the bonus board with a Wilder, Fury promotion!
The Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury heavyweight championship bout in Las Vegas has accomplished something few fights do. It encouraged a gambling outfit, FOXBet, to use boxing to drive a bonus.
Wilder-Fury 2, a rematch of their electrifying 2018 draw, prompted a small, but symbolic, move by FOXBet.
Here is the pitch.
FOXBet Wilder, Fury Promotion Offer – 3 Minutes to Win it!
If the Fight Goes Past Round 1 – Bet $25 to win $50
- Register and verify your account using this EXCLUSIVE LINK
- Must have made a deposit to qualify. The promotional bet has to be your first bet.
- Bet on 3 Minutes to Win it – If the Fight Goes Past Round 1 – Bet $25 to win $50.
- Your $25 Free Bet will be credited on Monday, February 24th, 2020 by noon EST.
FOXBet is confident of providing the $25 bonus. Wilder is 33-1 and Fury 66-1 to win in the opening round.
The bonus amount may be small, but the symbolism is not. This is a betting breakthrough for boxing, which has struggled to lure gamblers on most fights because of the absence of a point spread.
A loser can’t really “cover”, which is a prime ingredient for betting.
That’s the same ideology for FOXBet Sportsbook. The book will hook new customers with the Wilder Fury promotion bonus that exposes bettors to other options across all sports.
Beyond the bonus, for example, there are interesting plays here.
- A Wilder knockdown is -118.
- Not bad odds, considering he had two in the first fight.
FOXBet has group-rounds wagering. Wilder’s odds are between 6-1 and 11-1 for anyone picking the three-round period in which he would stop Fury. Numbers are 12-1 to 25-1 in group-rounds betting for Fury to score a knockout.
Will both fighters go down? Interesting prop. It’s 7-1 for yes.
Wilder, Fury Promotion Odds Boosts
This is a great moneyline betting fight. Wilder is slightly favored, but it was close to pick-em for most of the past two weeks. Wilder was inching up toward 6-5 status late in the week. But for much of the wagering period, the moneyline rivaled that of an NFL spread. Close to -110.
For Wilder-Fury, select the right fighter and one is practically guaranteed to double his/her money.
Yet the props are also tantalizing.
- Wilder winning a decision pays in the 8-1 and 9-1 neighborhood, even though the fight is considered even on paper.
Props reflect the belief that Wilder’s victory is a knockout and Fury’s is a decision. It would not be “Wilderly” contrarian, however, to pick him by decision.
Fury was cut badly in the third round of his last fight, a 2019 win over Otto Wallin. He gamely survived for the last nine rounds but would probably not be able to hold Wilder off that long. A similar cut would put Fury dangerously in the path of Wilder’s powerful jab.
This is a battle of undefeated heavyweights who have 71 wins. Wilder has been the WBC heavyweight champion since 2015, when he won by decision vs Bermane Stiverne at the same MGM Grand Arena where he’ll fight Saturday.
Wilder had never fought past four rounds when he went 12 and won by decision vs Stiverne, a highly unlikely successful jump in rounds.
Two years later, Wilder fought Stiverne in a rematch. And stopped him in one round.
- Wilder is 42-0-1 with 41 knockouts.
- Fury is 29-0-1 with 20 knockouts.
Fury became prominent at the same time as Wilder. He toppled Vladimir Klitschko, the world’s top heavyweight, in 2015.
Fury is 6-foot-9. Wilder is 6-foot-7. They both had to box more than a slugfest in the first fight because neither had a real height advantage. Fury outboxed Wilder and was en route to victory but Wilder knocked him down in the 9th and 12th rounds. What propelled this rematch was Fury bravely getting up from what appeared to be a finishing blow in the 12th.
The winner of this fight will be lobbying Anthony Joshua, who has three of the four heavyweight belts, for a fight this year. If either fighter wins in dramatic fashion, a battle with Joshua would be enormous in terms of public support.
While other books did not follow the FOXBet route, they are promoting the fight in their weekly dispatches.
DraftKings – Expectation of a KO
- DraftKings pays +120 for the fight to go the distance.
- Odds of not going the distance is -162, meaning a bettor essentially lays 8-5.
Rather than do that, one may be enticed to select the right fighter for the knockout.
- Wilder is +125 and Fury is +550.
A Wilder decision pays handsomely within the context of this rivalry.
- It returns 9-1, while Fury is +170.
Their first fight went 12 rounds and Wilder was outboxed before stealing the draw with two late knockdowns. This prop reflects doubt that he can box and win, but that’s nonetheless quite a return.
Wilder received 71% of the money and 76% of the tickets by mid-week.
William Hill – Wilder’s The Man
Similar sentiment unfolds at William Hill, with 75% of the moneyline tickets and 70% of the money on Wilder.
This book has a unique approach to rounds wagering, a series of over-under bets determined in half-rounds. That breaks the three-minute round into a pair of 1:30 blocks.
Think of the anxiety and intensity for a bettor watching a referee on the verge of stopping a fight somewhere near the 1:30 mark of the round you’ve picked as a knockout round.
- A stoppage at 1:29 rewards the under.
- At 1:31, it pays the over.
PlaySugarHouse – Fast and Furious
Here’s an electrifying prop. Will the fight end in the first 59 seconds?
The site has an interesting bet of whether either fighter an be dropped and still win. Fury would pay 5-1, Wilder 9-1.
Betting on the NBA can be fun and exciting. But it can also be quite lucrative. Thanks in part to the many NBA promos offered by some of the top NJ sportsbooks.
Whether you’re betting on the NBA or just a fan of one of the teams that play just outside New Jersey, you’ve no doubt experienced the heartbreak of a fourth-quarter meltdown.
It can be rather frustrating when your side leads big heading into the fourth quarter and just can’t seem to hold on. Thankfully, FanDuel Sportsbook has developed an NBA betting promo that takes a little of the nasty sting away.
NBA 3rd Quarter Insurance
FanDuel calls it NBA 3rd Quarter Insurance. All you have to do is make a pre-game moneyline bet on any NBA game and you’ll be covered.
As long as the team you bet on ends the 3rd quarter with the lead, you’ll get at least a refund of up to $50 in site credit on your bet.
Of course, if your team goes on to win, you’ll get paid off the same as always. It’s just that if they lose that lead in the fourth and go on to drop the game, the NBA 3rd Quarter Insurance kicks in. That means FanDuel will refund your bet of up to $50 in site credit.
Of course, you can use that site credit any way you like. However, make another NBA moneyline bet and FanDuel’s NBA 3rd Quarter Insurance will cover you again.
Make it Rain
Then, there’s the Make it Rain NBA promo on PointsBet Sportsbook.
PointsBet leads the league in great NBA promos and contests and this is a fun one. The site rolled it Make It Rain during the 2019 NCAA Tournament. It has now extended it through the NBA season.
The terms are simple. Just place a $100 spread bet on an NBA game and get $3 for every three-point field goal your side makes throughout the game.
Last year the Houston Rockets broke the single-season record averaging more than 16 threes per game. This means you can almost bank on getting close to half your money back on a $100 spread bet on any Rockets game, thanks to PointsBet Sportsbook’s Make it Rain promo.
Of course, the promo is only available for select games. So, pay attention to when the Rockets or some of the other teams in the league known for shooting from deep are on the docket and fire away.
Score The First 4 Points, You Win!
PointsBet also has NBA promos for moneyline wagers. The PointsBet Score The First 4 Points, You Win! promo is exactly as it sounds.
Place a pregame moneyline bet on an eligible NBA game and PointsBet will pay off the first $100 of that bet if your team scores the first four points of the game. Then, If your team goes on to win, the remainder of your bet will be paid out as normal.
Finally, keep an eye out for unusual happenings in the NBA. The PointsBet Sportsbook Karma Kommittee has a reputation for stepping in to rectify things.
The Karma Kommittee has already returned all losing New Orleans Pelicans moneyline bets after the Pels lost in overtime to the defending champion Toronto Raptors on opening night.
PointsBet’s Karma Kommittee has a long history of rewarding heartbroken gamblers who came oh so close. It looks like they will continue to do so throughout this NBA season.
For fans looking for something to do this weekend, Monmouth Park Sportsbook by William Hill is hosting an action-packed lineup of special guests, giveaways, events and more.
Meet n Greet With NY Giants Legend
- Sunday, November 24 at 1:00 PM EST
Former Giants RB Rodney Hampton will be at the William Hill Sportsbook at Monmouth Park. For fans of a certain age, that’s a name remembered for some excellent seasons in the 1990s. Hampton was a first-round pick in 1990 and was on the Super Bowl XXV champs.
However, he was injured during the season and his replacement Ottis Anderson won the MVP in that heart-stopping game in Tampa. Hampton came back and rushed for over 1,000 yards in five straight seasons. His 6,897 yards in just eight seasons was a team record until Tiki Barber eclipsed it.
Hampton’s appearance highlights what will be a busy weekend at the Central Jersey book. Yeah, it’s cold and windy this time of year in Monmouth County but the schedule put out by William Hill has some hot action.
NJ Devils Watch Party
- Friday, November 22 at 7:00 PM EST
Friday night is a watch party for the Devils-Penguins game. Former New Jersey Devil Grant Marshall, who won the Stanley Cup with the 2003 team and the 1999 Dallas Stars, will be there to meet fans. There will be giveaways, along with specials on Magic Hat’s “Woo Brew”. Hey anywhere with a burger and beer for $10 and wings with a pitcher for $20 is pretty good, especially a microbrew.
Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz – No-Cover at William Hill
- Saturday, November 23 at 9:00 PM EST
Saturday night, fans can watch the world heavyweight boxing championship rematch between Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz for free. Yeah, no cover like most bars and restaurants will have. Plus you can actually bet on the fights from your seat, legally.
Coors Light Giveaways
- Sunday, November 24 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM EST
Sunday will feature Coors Light giveaways from 1 to 3 PM, along with food and drink specials. Hampton will take pictures and autograph items for fans.
Bet and watch NFL games on the 40-plus HDTVs
Giants legend along with his Super Bowl ring will be in the house! That’s pretty cool.
Most of the special giveaways you see posted on NJ gambling websites are designed with casino players in mind. There are comparatively few specifically for sports bettors.
So if you’re one of them, now is a great time to be placing your sports bets at PlaySugarHouse Online Casino and Caesars Casino & Sports. Both websites also have sports betting mobile apps for those of you prefer the added convenience of betting on the go on your smartphone or tablet.
You could be the lucky winner of a great prize including among other things, two free tickets to see the Eagles rematch against the Patriots this coming Sunday and/or two free tickets to see the NJ Devils play in Las Vegas!

Place sports bets on PlaySugarHouse.com to win free Eagles tickets!
Sunday, Nov. 17, one of the most anticipated games not only of week 11 but of the entire NFL season will take place–the rematch of the Eagles and Patriots. Two weeks ago, the Baltimore Ravens ruined New England’s shot at a perfect season. But the team still has its sights set on going 15-1, with the first order of business getting revenge for losing to the Eagles in 2017 in Super Bowl VII.
The Eagles are determined not to let that happen. They are not the same team that prevailed in February, 2017, but they have pulled other upsets earlier this year and could do so again. The Eagles are determined to prove that their Super Bowl win over the Patriots was no fluke and would love nothing better than to post a victory next Sunday in South Philly in front of their adoring fans.
You would think by now the game would be completely sold out. But leave it to PlaySugarHouse Casino NJ to snag two VIP seats and set them aside for a super lucky player–maybe you–to be right there for every play, singing “Fly Eagles, Fly” at the top of your lungs, hoping to root the Eagles on to victory.
By the way, the betting lines for this game on PlaySugarHouse.com as of Thurs. afternoon, Nov. 14 (subject to change) are as follows:
- Point spread: Patriots -3 ½
- Moneyline: Patriots -200, Eagles +163
- Over/Under: 44 1/2
How to earn drawing entries
Wentz vs. Brady will be must-see viewing for anyone who places sports bets, if not in person, on TV. Kickoff time is 4:25 p.m. Sunday. But if you win the PlaySugarHouse drawing, so much better. The prize includes not only two Club Level seats but also $250 in spending money!
Unfortunately, this sweepstakes has only one winner, but over the next two days, you’re going to be making some sports bets anyway, right? So you might as well give it a shot.
For every $50 placed on sports bets on the site (single bets or parlays) between now at 4 p.m. Fri., 11/15, you earn one entry into the sweepstakes.
Awarding the prize
The drawing will take place on Friday after the entry earning period closes. The winner will be notified accordingly by 6 p.m. and then have one hour only to claim the prize. If the winner fails to claim the prize within the allotted time, an alternate winner will be selected.
The tickets will be delivered to the winning player via email, and the $250 spending cash will be credited to the player’s PlaySugarHouse.com account.

Eagles vs Patriots Club Seat Giveaway
For those who have not sat in the club level at Lincoln Financial Field for an Eagles game or another event, these are some of the best seats in the house. Along with great views along the sidelines, the club level has the BEST food and beverage options.
Yeah, you can get a hot dog and some tallboys. But you can also get some gourmet snacks from some of Philadelphia’s best restaurateurs, and premium cocktails expertly poured.
It’s a different level of luxury, and it’s a great option on what should be a frigid Sunday afternoon late kickoff.
(Disclaimer: I used to sell club seats for the Eagles.)
NFL Game Of The Week
Fall is the biggest season for all NJ sportsbooks, and both of these teams drive significant business. The Pats have dominated the AFC and have a strong ATS record.
Historically, they’re outstanding coming out of the bye and after a loss. The Eagles get a lot of action as the home team. While their performance has been inconsistent this year, fans are starting to see signs of life as the team contends for the NFC East.
A win in the Super Bowl rematch would convince many skeptics this team could go on another magical run.
This will not be a game to miss. In the last regular-season meeting, the Eagles had three return TDs, and Jordan Matthews 4th quarter score proved the difference in a 35-28 upset at Foxboro.
Bill Belichek will look to exact some retribution on the team and coach who scored the most points in a postseason game in the three-plus decades he’s been either a head coach or defensive coordinator. Want to be there in person?

There’s plenty of excitement surrounding the start of the 2019-20 NBA season as there is expected to be more parity this season than we’ve seen in a long time.
Those who are thinking about betting the Philadelphia 76ers to win the 2019 NBA Championship, you might want to head over to FanDuel Sportsbook as they’re offering an incredible odds boost.
FanDuel Promo Code Offers Big Boost On 76ers
For residents in the states of New Jersey or Philadelphia only, FanDuel Sportsbook is offering the Philadelphia 76ers at odds of +7600 (or 76/1) to win the NBA Championship. Yes, you read that right!
The 76ers are roughly in the neighborhood of +600 at most sportsbooks, so FanDuel’s odds boost gives you an extra 70 times your money.
In other words, at most places, a $10 bet on the 76ers to win the NBA Championship would pay $60 if they won. FanDuel is offering players $760.
How it works
First download the FanDuel sports betting app, which is available on both iOS and Android
When you’re signing up, use the FanDuel promo code: PROCESS to take advantage of the offer
Once you’ve signed up, your first bet must be the +7600 (76/1) odds on the 76ers to win the 2019-20 NBA Championship.
- The maximum you can bet on this is $10.
Can Sixers Win The Ring?
The 76ers had an epic offseason where they waved goodbye to Jimmy Butler and J.J. Redick but brought in Al Horford and Josh Richardson – among others – to replenish the lineup. They’re viewed as one of the top two teams in the Eastern Conference.
The question will be if a trimmed down Joel Embiid (lost 25 pounds) and an improved Ben Simmons (has been working on his jump shot) can elevate their play in the postseason.
If the answer is ‘yes’, this team could rise to the ranks of NBA champions and payout on those 76/1 odds.
Football fans in the New Jersey sports betting market now have a new way to wager on both the NFL and college football. DraftKings Sportsbook has a promotion available to all bettors who want to join the DK online football Pools Contest on the NJ sportsbook.
These online football pools were introduced last season at DraftKings and are now back again for 2019. Instead of just putting some action down on a single game, DraftKings pools allow football fans to pick a specific contest and make predictions for every game on the schedule.
Similar to Daily Fantasy Sports, sportsbook pools give players the freedom to choose exactly which contest they’d like to enter. The pools vary by type, prize pool, number of entries, duration and entry fees.
This promo is a fun way for bettors to have an interest in a wide variety of games, while only committing a fixed amount of money. These betting contests also give bettors some flexibility, as you don’t need to win every single game in order to earn a payout.
Inside DraftKings Football Pools
DraftKings Pools are a great transition for casual bettors or for those who feel more comfortable betting on daily fantasy. The range of pools is extensive as well, so gamblers of all experiences can find a pool that’s right for them.
Currently, DraftKings players can enter pools with the following entry fees:
Of course the prize pool differs based on the entry fee for each contest as well as the number of entries permitted to enter. While the most affordable pools payout $6, the $10 contests have pool prizes ranging from $60 to as much as $10,000.
The $500 entry is for the DraftKings Super Pool. This pool has a $1,000,000 prize pool and pays out anyone who finishes in the top 149 entries. Here are the highest potential winnings bettors can earn by placing in this contest:
- 1st – 25%
- 2nd – 15%
- 3rd – 10%
- 4th-5th – 5%
DraftKings Super Pool begins on Sept. 29 and lasts from Week 4 through Week 17 of the NFL season. In this time, players must select 70 games against the spread in total. There is no weekly pick requirement, though.
After the regular season ends, the entry with the most wins will earn the top prize.
Other pools have different rules, however. DraftKings users can join weekly pools for just Week 2 of the NFL season. In this contest, players pick the winners of the games straight up, instead of against the point spread.
This weekly pool has an unlimited number of entries and payouts are limited to just the top three spots. The pay table for this pool is as follows:
- 1st – 50%
- 2nd – 30%
- 3rd – 20%
Beyond predicting the outcome of NFL games, there are pools available that include strictly college football, as well as props.
There is a pool for Thursday Night Football where bettors must predict what will happen for eight different prop bets specifically for that night’s matchup. Props include which player will score the first touchdown, who will have more passing yards, will there be a safety and so on.
DraftKings Private Pools
Besides the standard pools provided by the online sportsbook, football fans are able to create their own contests to enjoy with friends and family. You’re able to select if it’s for college or NFL, which type of pool it is, the date of the contest and the entry fee price.
This is a great move by DraftKings, as a lot of football enthusiasts love competing against people they’re watching the games with.
Pools are a fun way to have an interest in a lot of different games without having to pay for each bet. They will most likely grow in popularity as the football season intensifies.
The start of the NFL season is a great time to be a sports bettor. Not only is the NFL one of the most exciting sports to bet one, it also marks a time of the year where sportsbooks offer new customers the biggest NFL sports betting bonus.
Think of it as kind of a Black Friday as you’ll get your best incentives at this time of year.
