FanDuel currently accepts bets on nearly two dozen sports. Additional sports, such as athletics and skiing, are added to the list when a major tournament such as the Olympics Games is taking place. The most popular sports at FanDuel are football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, golf, tennis, MMA, boxing and motorsports. They are all covered in a comprehensive fashion, with hundreds of leagues from around the world available alongside the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL.
The sections for niche sports such as volleyball, handball, darts, rugby league, rugby union and cricket are also very thorough. You can place hundreds of different bet types on a big game, including same-game parlays, alternative spreads and totals, bets on quarters, halves and periods, and tons of props.
There are lots of futures betting markets, and it has one of the best live betting sections on the market, with live streaming available on some games. Most FanDuel bonus funds can be used on any bet types, but you should always check the terms and conditions.
FanDuel NFL Promo
FanDuel runs a variety of NFL promotions throughout the season. New customers will often find short-term welcome bonuses aimed specifically at football fans. It marked the start of the last NFL season by running a "Bet $5, Win $200" bonus, with winnings paid in cash. That essentially amounted to a 40/1 (+4000) odds boost on any team.
It continued offering generous bonuses throughout the season before launching the "Bet $5, Win $280" bonus mentioned below to attract new customers ahead of the Super Bowl. There are also free-to-enter sportsbook contests for NFL fans. For example, you can pick the highest and lowest-performing NFL teams across varying stat categories in a bid to win $5,000 each weekend.
FanDuel Super Bowl Promo
FanDuel blew its rivals out of the water by offering a "Bet $5, Win $280" bonus for new customers in the build-up to the last Super Bowl. You could bet $5 on either team and then get paid $280 in cash if your chosen team won. It was therefore a 56/1 (+5600) odds boost to celebrate Super Bowl 56.
DraftKings also ran a "Bet $5, Win $280" bonus, but winnings were paid in site credit – with a 1x rollover requirement – as opposed to cash. If you claimed the FanDuel promo, you did not have to complete any playthrough requirements whatsoever before withdrawing.
FanDuel NBA Promo
The $1,000 no sweat first bet can be used on any NBA game featured on the FanDuel Sportsbook app. There are some additional FanDuel promotions for basketball fans too. For example, if you place a $10 same-game parlay on a Thursday night NBA game, you will receive $10 in site credit. There are odds boosts on NBA games available too, plus sportsbook contests offering generous prizes.
FanDuel MLB Promo
The FanDuel no sweat first bet bonus can also be used on any MLB game. An additional promotion for baseball bettors is "$5 Dinger Tuesdays," which allows you to bet $25 on any player to hit a home run and then receive $5 in site credit every time either team hits a home run in that game. It is also running a "Baseball Parlay Bet & Get" bonus, whereby you receive up to $20 in site credit for placing an MLB parlay with four or more legs.
FanDuel NHL Promo
FanDuel's welcome bonus can be used on any NHL game. Additional FanDuel NHL promotions are available to all customers throughout the season, including odds boosts. It also ran a fun "NHL Winter Classic" promo, whereby you could bet $25 on the correct score and receive $5 in free bet credit for every goal scored, up to a maximum of $25. The game finished 6-4 to the St. Louis Blues, so anyone that took advantage of this FanDuel promotion received the full $25 in site credit.
