From now until Sep. 30, BetStars NJ has a boosted odds promo on the first $5 futures bet you make on the big game. All NFL teams are eligible for the bet, including the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles.
Guess the Super Bowl winner at BetStars NJ
This promotion is pretty terrific on its face. Just from an odds point of view, you’re getting a significant overlay on your bet.
Of the 32 NFL teams, most of them have better than 100/1 odds of winning it all. In fact, according to the most recent odds from the Westgate Las Vegas Sportsbook, only two teams in the entire league have worse odds to win the Super Bowl.
So, unless you’re a fan of the Arizona Cardinals or the Buffalo Bills, a bet at 100/1 is not a bad deal. We’re gonna guess, though, that most of you are Eagles fans.
However, there are a couple of caveats to keep in mind.
Rules of the BetStars 100/1 odds promo
The first thing to know is that the boosted odds only apply to the first $5 of the bet. So, if you want to put $100 on the Eagles, that’s fine — but only $5 will go off at 100/1. The rest will play at the normal odds for the bet.
The other thing to know is that because the boost only applies to the first $5, you can’t make multiple $5 bets and cover all the teams. While spending $160 to assure a $500 win sounds delightful, BetStars has already made sure it isn’t possible.
You also have to use your own money to remain eligible for the promotion. Free bets, voided bets, or cashed-out bets do not qualify for the deal.
BetStars wants to make its mark in NJ sports betting
BetStars NJ launched its sportsbook on Sept. 13. This promotion technically started that very same day.
Clearly, the subsidiary of The Stars Group wants to make a big splash into an already crowded field in New Jersey. BetStars is the eighth online sportsbook to debut in the Garden State.
BetStars is the sports betting arm of the same company that operates PokerStars NJ. In keeping with the poker site’s reputation, the BetStars app features several innovative amenities.
As with some of the other apps, BetStars offers an extensive in-play betting system so that players can wager multiple times on the same contest. The app also features a game feed to keep bettors informed about the progress of a particular game.
The app also features early cash-out options and enhanced bonuses, like the promotion above. There should be some free-to-play products and original content onsite soon, too.
The BetStars promotion is certainly original in its own right, however. Risking $5 to win $500 is almost a no-brainer. Fly Eagles Fly.
