DraftKings, Fox Bet boosting week 2 Steelers and Eagles bets

PSB Pick Play: DraftKings Promotion Boosts Winning Bets for Steelers, Eagles and Everyone Else in Week 2

The fun won’t end at Week One.

The NFL’s second week started with the Browns beating the Bengals 35-30 last night and a whole bunch more games beckon on Sunday. And don’t worry, Pennsylvania sportsbooks are rolling out a bunch of promotions again to make sure the momentum continues.

According to Yahoo! Finance, DraftKings reported that the NFL’s opening week provided the most new customer sign-ups in a single week since 2015. And although that mark might be difficult to duplicate, the company is still planning some interesting offerings for Week 2.

In this week’s installment of Penn Sportsbooks Pick Play, we’ll cover the DraftKings promotions for Week 2 and some of the other NFL wagering options available at our region’s sportsbooks.

DraftKings giving away an extra 25% on all Week 2 games

DraftKings seemed to issue the best promotion of the week with an offer that provides a 25 percent profit boost on every Week 2 game. However, there is a little fine print attached. (Opt-in required. Max bet is $50 and the max winnings are capped at $100).

But with an offer that can be used all day long, DraftKings is giving you a decent chance to get ahead. 

And if you’re looking to use the promotion with a wager on Pennsylvania’s teams, both the Eagles and Steelers kick off Sunday at 1 p.m.

FOX Bet offering a special for every game

Just so DraftKings doesn’t have all the fun, FOX Bet is also offering a special on nearly every game Sunday. For the Steelers game, you can earn five times your money if Ben Roethlisberger has three passing touchdowns and more than 270 passing yards.

And for the Eagles/Rams game, you can get a +700 return if Carson Wentz and Jared Goff each eclipse 300 yards.

Many of the specials provide substantial returns, so it’s worth checking out the entire list.

DraftKings, FanDuel both making millionaires this weekend
