Week 1 Promos at PA Sportsbooks

This should be fun. The 2021-2022 NFL season returns on Thursday and the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers start on Sunday. There will be crowded tailgates, packed stadiums and seemingly everything else that was stolen from us all last season.

There will be betting too, with spreads, props and totals overflowing on the boards of sportsbooks and inside their betting apps too. And there will be lots of promotions. Pennsylvania sportsbooks will be competing for your betting dollars by offering bonuses, incentives and what should ultimately be some easy money.

Here are some of the promotions available for Week 1. But this is only just the beginning.  Keep coming back to PlayPennsylvania all season long for more incentives to help you make the most of your betting dollars.

DraftKings is giving you the Buccaneers and 73 points

Maybe you can’t win ‘em all, but DraftKings is making sure you win the first one.

The NFL season starts Thursday with Tom Brady and the Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosting the Dallas Cowboys

And thanks to a DraftKings bonus, Tampa Bay is +73 promotion that is appropriately labeled a no-brainer. 

The boosted odds are priced at -110 and wager limits apply, but don’t overthink it.

Take the points. And take the money.

FanDuel Sportsbook first bet risk-free promo

Over at FanDuel if you lose your first bet the sportsbook, FanDuel will issue a refund in site credit up to $1,000. The promo credit expires in 14 days.

Super Win Bonus: Place a $50+ bet on any team to win the Super Bowl between Aug. 20 – Sept. 9 and get a $5 site credit for each regular season win.

Unibet lets you wager risk free

At Unibet Sports, your first wager is risk-free. When you make your first bet of $10 or more, if it doesn’t win, you will receive a refund in bonus money equal to the amount of your losing bet up to $500.

FOX Bet free $5 bet

Free money is the best money, right? FOX Bet certainly thinks so. The sportsbook is giving users a free $5 bet for the NFL’s season opener next Thursday featuring the Cowboys and Buccaneers. Users just need to opt-in to receive the bet.

Steelers and Eagles can win you money with every win

Much like FanDuel’s futures promotion, BetRivers has a bonus that pays out a free $5 bet every time your chosen team wins. Users must place a $50+ bet on either the Eagles or Steelers to win the division. Bets must be placed by 9/9 to qualify. After that, free bets will be awarded every Tuesday following a regular season win.

BetMGM is giving you a free bet for your futures bet

Over at BetMGM, a futures bet of at least $25 will earn a free $10 bet in return. Users must opt-in to the promotion from their BetMGM account. Following that, any user who paces a futures bet of $25+ will receive a free $10 bet for Week 1 of the NFL season.

Barstool Sportsbook promotion has strong return for the over

At Barstool Sportsbook users must first op-in and then place a $50+ futures wager on one team to win the 2021-22 NFL Championship. If that team goes over their Barstool Sportsbook season win total, users will earn $25 in sportsbook bonus cash.

So the countdown is on. The NFL season begins in just a few short days. And Pennsylvania’s sportsbooks have a number of bonuses and promotions ready kickoff.

There are bets to win and dollars to be made.

Don’t miss out.

Because it’s guaranteed to be fun.
