For fans of any team sports who have a favorite squad, watching the rivals of that team perform poorly is a delight. That’s something Philadelphia Eagles bettors can actually make some money off of: Lamar Jackson completing just one pass.
It’s the latest No-Brainer odds boost from DraftKings Sportsbook.
It just so happens that his Baltimore Ravens are playing the Dallas Cowboys in a rare Tuesday night game (8:05 p.m. tonight on Fox). This is a rare chance to net some “spite dollars” on a Tuesday night for Eagles supporters.
Details on Jackson odds boost from DraftKings
To take advantage of this NJ sports betting promo, register for an account or log in to your DraftKings Sportsbook. Make sure you’ve got some money in your account to wager with. Then, opt in to the “Lamar Completion Boost.”
The line is set at just 0.5 completions, so unless Jackson fails to complete a single pass in the game, this is a win. The boost takes the odds all the way up to +100 on this market, which is doubling your money.
The maximum bet is $25, so as soon as you see Jackson complete a single pass in the game, you could earn an extra $25 in your DraftKings account. Jackson is averaging almost 18 completions per game so far this year, so this seems a no-brainer.
The Dallas defense is averaging allowing over 20 pass completions per contest to this point in the season, so that’s another reason to not pass on this offer. Eagles fans likely hope that Jackson will have a banner game en route to a victory over the Cowboys.
Plus, a Dallas loss means the Birds will avoid last place in the NFC East.
The only concern bettors might have is about whether Jackson will actually play in this rescheduled game. All the indicators point toward that being the case.
Ravens' QB Lamar Jackson is expected to come off Reserve/COVID19 list and start Tuesday vs. the Dallas Cowboys, per sources.

Looks like Jackson will start for Ravens
After Jackson tested positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 26, he went to the team’s reserve/COVID list. He missed Baltimore’s last game (a 19-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers), but it looks like he will be calling signals for the Ravens on Tuesday.
Baltimore activated him on Monday. While it’s not certain how sharp he will be, not only because of the virus but because of his lack of practice time, the chances of him completing at least one pass seem good.
What’s more, the Ravens need him because they need this game. Baltimore (6-5) trails Pittsburgh (11-1) and the Cleveland Browns (9-3) in the AFC North standings. They may need to win out to secure an AFC wild card spot.
A team desperate for playoff position could lead to a Dallas defeat that would delight Eagles fans. If Jackson completes a pass, that could be worth up to an extra $25 for those who take advantage of this deal as well.
