DraftKings coverage of football is about as good as it gets for a sportsbook. The section offers bets on the NFL, CFL, NCAA and even on Arena Football. The number of bets offered vary by the prominence of the league. For example, on Arena Football you can find just one bet. It is usually a bet on the winner with a point spread. The CFL has more bets offered than just about any other sportsbook in New Jersey.
You can of course bet on the winner, the spread or on totals. The spread and total point are also available for the first half only. However, there are also a couple of prop bets offered to the player. For example, you can bet on which team will score first or whether the total score will be odd or even. The NCAA and the NFL have the widest range of bets offered.
These usually involve bets on the spread and total bets on the points. For the NFL, there is a wide variety of futures bets on like individual awards. You can bet on who will win Coach of the Year, Rookie of the Year (Offensive/ Defensive), Comeback Player of the Year and more. Also, unique to DraftKings is a bet on the NFL Draft. Here you can make a prediction on which player will be taken first overall in the draft.
There is also a very good selection of bets available for the MLB. This should come as no surprise as the MLB was one of the first businesses to invest in DraftKings. For the individual games, you can make bets on just about anything. There are several handicap lines and total runs bets that you can make. Meaning you can add more of an insurance on your bet for different odds.
For the alternate total runs, you can select a run total all the way up to +14.5. The selection of prop bets on display is also very good. Bets here include home/away team to score first and win, total runs from each team and the last team to score among others.
You can also bet on the first team to score a certain number of runs. The range for this bet goes from two to five runs. There are various bets available for certain innings and number of innings as well. You can make a bet on which team will win the first inning.
Total number of runs bets are also available for the first inning, the first three innings and the first five innings. Handicap bets are also listed in this fashion with two different handicaps to bet on for the first three innings, and three variants for the first five innings.
In the future bets category, you can find bets on four of the major individual awards given at the end of the season. These include the American League and National League MVP as well as the Cy Young award for both leagues. There are not yet bets available on division and World Series winners. This is something DraftKings will likely look to add in the future.
The most popular sport in the world deserves an adequate sportsbook section and DraftKings does not disappoint. The sportsbook features the top five leagues as well as the MLS at the top. However, DraftKings offers bets for many leagues besides the most popular. Here you can find the main leagues from countries like Estonia, Romania, Ukraine, Finland and more.
One of the coolest things featured in this section is the opportunity to bet on who will win the league for just about all of the leagues they have listed. The number of bets for each game depends on the popularity of the league so in order to receive the most options you must stick to the more popular leagues.
That does not just mean the top five however as most of the leagues have a good amount of variety in the bets offered. For a league like Premier League however the possibilities are endless. You can bet on which player will be the first or last to score. The main bets are all there with many variations for each. The list of prop bets available is almost endless.
You can bet on whether a team will score a penalty or not, on if there will be a comeback win, a player given a red card or not, etc. For totals bets you can bet on the total number of corners, cards given, points in the first and second half, total scores of the away or home team and more.
