This weekend is shaping up to be massive for degenerates everywhere. On Saturday, we have a full slate of college hoops, followed by the long-awaited UFC 257, featuring Conor McGregor’s rematch against Dustin Poirier (more in my preview tomorrow, but I’m leaning hard on Poirier). Then Sunday, we have a doubleheader of NFL playoffs for conference championship weekend, a bittersweet moment for football bettors everywhere as it marks two of the final three games of the year.
Be a smart gambler for once in your godforsaken life and go into this weekend fully prepared. If you’re like me and the thought of leaving money on the table makes you physically ill, make sure you hop on these Easy Money Promos from DraftKings and PointsBet for UFC 257 and the NFL playoffs. As always, you got your friend Action Jackson here to do the work so you don’t have to. You’re welcome.
Easy Money DraftKings Promos
New User NFL and McGregor Odds Boosts
Promo: New users get boosted odds to either 100-1 on NFL playoff action or 257-1 on a McGregor first-round KO
Goodness, gracious. If you haven’t signed up for DraftKings by now, this should convince you. The 100-1 odds are nice for the NFL, but the 257-1 is just preposterous. 20 out of McGregor’s 22 wins have come via knockout, and he rarely goes the distance. Personally, I think an early knockout is the only way he’ll beat Poirier, so you might as well throw a unit or two on this and hope for a big payday.
McGregor Win Odds Boost
This is just silly. DraftKings capped this at $25 max bet, otherwise, they would have gone completely out of business. Listen, I think it’s going to be a tough fight for him, but this feels like a free $50. I’m gonna jump on this and then hedge with a bunch of Poirer bets. I suggest you do the same.
NFL Playoffs Parlay Boost
Last weekend, I fully appreciated the power of the parlay, as my 4-leg NFL moneyline parlay hit big and bailed me out of an otherwise piss-poor weekend of betting. A 25% boost is huge, and if you bet correctly on both games this weekend, you’ll have a nice little payout. You’re going to be parlay betting anyway, so you might as well tack an extra 25% onto your NFL playoffs bets for these Easy Money Promos.
PointsBet Easy Money Promos
UFC 257 – KO Insurance
Promo: Bet on Conor McGregor to win against Dustin Poirier by KO/TKO and receive money back up to $50 if he wins by any other method
The fight-line spread for this matchup is massive (McGregor -325), so you’re going to make your money on winning method bets. As I mentioned before, McGregor has won 20 of his 22 fights by knockout, and it’s way more likely he’ll win through that avenue than by decision (-175 KO/TKO/DQ vs. +650 by decision). If you like Conor, the smart move here is to bet on the McGregor knockout and get your money back even if he somehow goes to distance.
NFL Playoffs Promos
Promo: Bet on either NFL Conference Championship game at +100 (or the equivalent) Odds (Found under “Featured Wagers” Tab)
We’ve touched on this all month, but you gotta take advantage of these odds. PointsBet is kindly forgoing their vig for all NFL playoff action. Thank them for their kindness by stealing all their money this weekend at the best odds you’ll find at any book.
But keep an eye out because these won’t be the only Easy Money Promos for the NFL playoffs. Stay tuned this weekend as well for boosted odds on the games (they generally release these Friday or Saturday) and string together as many as you can for single-game parlays. They’re once again offering parlay insurance (get your money back if only 1 leg loses) for NFL single-gamers, so might as well get a unit or two in there.
PGA Booster Odds
Not a huge golf guy, but I do know that these odds are simply scrumptious, and Brooks has finished in the Top 10 forty-three times in his career.
NBA Booster Odds
Odds Boost: Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James To Combine For 60+ Points (Boosted from +135 to +160 )
Both of these guys are early season MVP candidates and captaining the odds-on favorites to win the Finals this year. Expect both of them to bring their A games tonight, and at least one to go off for 35+.
Meme Team Booster Odds
Caruso is part of the PointsBet “Meme Team,” a booster lineup for the most meme-able NBA players. Even though he scores just shy of 6 points a game, he’s hitting 55% of his threes and averaging 1.5 makes a night. If he’s scoring, it’s going to be off of a three, and getting just 2 of them should be easy money. HAMMER.
