Betting on UFC 249 Through DraftKings Online Sportsbook
Given the lack of options for sports fans over the last few weeks, UFC 249 fight between Ferguson and Gaethje will not only be must-see TV but also a great chance to wager money on a live sporting event.
The DraftKings Online Sportsbook is stepping up and offering bettors a large selection of betting lines leading up to the fights as well as during the fight itself through DraftKings Live Betting.
DraftKings Online Sportsbook UFC 249 Bonuses
The DraftKings Online Sportsbook is taking advantage of the evening’s festivities by offering some high-value extra bonus opportunities that you will definitely need to checking out if you are thinking of betting on the Ferguson/Gethje fight.
20% UFC 249 Profit Boost
If you are located in Indiana, Iowa, Pennsylvania or West Virginia, you will have the chance to take part in the DraftKings Online Sportsbook 20% UFC 249 Profit Boost bonus. The promotion essentially allows you to get an extra 20% on up to $50 in UFC 249 bets.
To take part, simply bet on any UFC 249 Market from May 9th to be eligible. When placing your bet, you must select the boost on your bet slip to receive the Boosted price. You can bet up to $50 and receive up to $250 in additional winnings from the UFC Boost.
The 20% boost will apply just to your winnings. So if you bet $10 on a +100 betting line, you would receive a total of $22 ($10 original bet+$10 win+$2 profit boost) instead of the normal $20 should the bet win.
In addition to standard sports betting lines offered through the DraftKings Sportsbook, the UFC 249 Profit Boost can also be applied to live bets and parlays. Sports wagers made with free bets, cash out bets, voided bets and odds boosts will not be eligible for the offer.
DraftKings CO Sportsbook offering Tim Tebow-inspired Bet
DraftKings went live with its online sportsbook in Colorado on May 1st, and to celebrate, DraftKings has a special bonus offer for CO sports bettors.
Colorado sports fans will undoubtedly have fond memories of Tim Tebow’s touchdown 11 seconds into overtime during the 2012 NFL Playoffs Against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If the Ferguson-Gaethje fight lasts longer than the Pittsburgh Steelers defense did in that game, players will win a boosted bet at +100.
Yes, you read that right. DraftKings CO sports bettors can get the fight lasting 12 seconds at +100, amazing value that is likely close to free money. There is no catch but there are some limitations. You can not bet any more than $25 on the Boosted Line and the bet must be placed on an individual bet slip.
Not bad for the first major sporting event since Colorado went live with sports betting earlier this month.
