NJ Online Sportsbooks Have Some Good News For Hoops And Boxing Fans

Even though most people are still shaking off their turkey comas from Thanksgiving, NJ sportsbooks are not resting. They’ve got some great promotions for customers, and this week is no exception.

Some promotions will appeal to basketball fans of all levels plus a deal for boxing fans.

FanDuel Sportsbook: NBA Player Prop Risk-Free Bet

The sport of basketball, despite being a team sport, creates statistics that make player comparisons rather simple.

In that spirit, FanDuel Sportsbook offers the ability to make bets on the individual performances of NBA players during all of their games.

However, wagering money on a particular player’s upcoming performance is a tricky investment. That difficulty is why FanDuel will ensure the first $25 of any prop bet on an NBA player.

Prop bets on NBA players can take many forms. FanDuel breaks these wagers down into the following categories:

  • First Basket: A wager on which player will score the first basket of the game
  • First Basket/Winner Double: A wager on which player will score the first basket for the winning team
  • Player Performance Double: A wager that a player will achieve a certain milestone and that his team will also win
  • First Basket/First Quarter Double: A wager that a player will score the first basket of the game and that his team will then be in the lead at the end of the first quarter

Needless to say, some of these bets depend on several factors. So, it’s good to have insurance in one’s back pocket before making one of these wagers.

888 Sportsbook: NCAA Basketball Challenge

If pro basketball isn’t your cup of tea, head on over to 888 Sport NJ. There is a great college basketball deal waiting for you that could be worth an extra $100.

In this promotion, players must merely make a parlay bet on NCAA basketball games. The parlay must contain at least three legs and have odds of -200 or higher.

If the parlay bet wins, 888 Sport will double your winnings. Up to $100 of extra cash will flow your direction just like that.

Even better, you can get this promotion once per day and up to 20 times. The deal runs all the way until the end of March 2019, so it’s not like you have to hurry to cash in.

However, there is much unpredictability and parity in college basketball these days. So, it shouldn’t be hard to find some good opportunities to win.

BetStars NJ: Wilder vs. Fury Knockout Offer

Finally, if you prefer to watch people punch each other in the face, then BetStars NJ might be the place to go.

This weekend’s upcoming fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is a classic heavyweight match between two world-class boxers.

In this match, Wilder will defend his WBC heavyweight title against the British Fury. BetStars has pledged to award free bets up to $20 if Wilder happens to lose by knockout, technical knockout, or disqualification.

Obviously, most of us want the American Wilder to prevail in the match. The Bronze Bomber is undefeated and is the first great American heavyweight in about a decade.

However, boxing is a fluky sport, and the normally-imposing Wilder is surrendering two inches and thirty pounds to the massive Brit. Fury certainly has the size and ability to come out on top in this one.

Should that kind of crushing defeat occur, the last thing that a Garden State bettor wants to see is his money being stretchered out with Wilder? BetStars NJ can’t help if Wilder goes to sleep, but it can take away the financial sting a bit.

Hopefully, you can take advantage of one or more of these deals. Make sure you check out each NJ sports betting site anyway, however, because there might be other items that draw your eye. Good luck!
