To celebrate their opening in Virginia, DraftKings is offering new customers in the state a special deal: double your money if the Wizards hit a single shot from beyond the arc!

If you want to cash in on the promotion, you must have deposited at least $5 into your DraftKings account. You’ll receive a single-use odds boost for their game tonight against the Atlanta Hawks, who give up the fourth-fewest three-pointers per game (11.3). However, it should still be a safe bet, especially since Bradley Beal is averaging 2.6 threes per game — he even made six shots from deep against the Pelicans! Bettors can wager up to $50 on this line.

PointsBet Sportsbook 

Bet on the Detroit Red Wings at a boosted spread (+11).

Who: All users are eligible.

As sportsbooks expand into Michigan, PointsBet has put together another no-brainer on the house booster for the Red Wings’ game against the Florida Panthers this Saturday. Bettors can move the spread from +1.5 to +11, a reference to Detroit’s 11 Stanley Cup victories.

The Red Wings are currently a dismal 2-5-1 with a -13 goal differential. Fortunately, the boosted spread is almost impossible for the Panthers to cover. They also have a negative goal differential (-3), and they would have to nearly quintuple their goals per game (2.43) to prevent this from cashing. Bettors can wager up to $25 on this line.

Bet on NHL moneylines, get your money back in free bets if your team loses in overtime.

PointsBet has put together another great offer for hockey bettors. Users who wager up to $50 on the moneyline can get all of their money back (in free bets) should their favored team lose.

The 4-3 Pittsburgh Penguins will take on the 2-4 New York Rangers on Saturday, and the moneyline odds are currently split right down the middle at -110. Sportsbooks have wildly different reads of this game — some have the Rangers at -1.5, while others have the Penguins at -1.5. However, the Penguins have already beaten the Rangers twice this year, and I expect them to bounce back from their loss against the Bruins with a compelling win.

William Hill 

Bet on the Celtics or Lakers, get a free bet equal to your team’s number of assists minus their turnovers.

The folks at William Hill will feature the Lakers and Celtics in their Dollars For Dimes promotion this weekend. Bettors who place a $50 straight bet against the spread before tip-off on Saturday will receive a free bet equal to your chosen team’s number of assists minus their turnovers.

Since the Celtics must also play on Friday, William Hill has not yet posted their spread for the game. That said, you should expect them to favor the Lakers — it’s just a question of by how much. Unless the Celtics choose to rest their key players on the opposite end of this back-to-back, I take them plus the points.

That said, if you’re just looking to cash in on the free bet, the Lakers would probably earn you the heftier free bet. They average 24.7 assists and 14.7 turnovers per game, good for a $10 free bet. In contrast, the Celtics average 22.7 assists and 15.1 turnovers per game, which would only net you a $7.6 free bet.
