FanDuel Sportsbook Review & Promo

FanDuel Sportsbook is currently offering a $1,000 No Sweat First Bet promotion to new users.

About FanDuel Sportsbook

FanDuel Sportsbook didn’t wait long to take advantage of the legalization of sports betting in the United States – and now that the company has a foothold in several U.S. states, the sky’s the limit. The FanDuel Sportsbook provides bettors with one of the best all-around experiences of any sportsbook in the country, having overcome some initial hiccups to provide strong customer service, tons of fun promos, and a near-flawless interface.

After carving out a place at the top of the DFS heap, FanDuel jumped into the sports betting fray when it was purchased by Paddy Power Betfair shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the country’s existing sports betting ban was unconstitutional. Less than two months after the deal was finalized, FanDuel began operating at Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment in East Rutherford, N.J., through a partnership with the Golden Nugget in nearby Atlantic City. It is now available in 15 states.

Bet Types

  • Spreads: Spread betting is a bet on the difference of points, or “margin of victory,” in a game.
  • Moneylines: Moneyline betting is when you pick the winner of the game or event.
  • Halves: Halves let a bettor treat the first half and the second half as separate matches.
  • Totals: A total, also known as an over/under, is a bet on the number of points both teams will combine to score in a game.
  • Futures: Future bets are bets on an event that will be decided in the future (e.g., end-of-season results).
  • Props: A prop bet, short for a proposition, is a wager that is not directly tied to the final score or outcome.
  • Live betting: This lets you place bets on the action as it unfolds.

FanDuel Sportsbook Interface

The interface might just be the best part of the FanDuel Sportsbook experience:

The mobile interface closely resembles the desktop look, which is clean and easy to follow. Those looking to roll with the consensus plays can do so with minimal effort: not only does FanDuel Sportsbook feature the most popular leagues at the top of its left-hand navigation, it also features the most popular wagers within each sport – as well as on the site as a whole – within the first tab of the center nav.

Moneyline odds for each game are presented with big blue numbers, making them easy to read. And you’ll never not know what FanDuel Sportsbook promotions are on the go: They’re situated in the top middle of the screen, giving bettors plenty of enticement to click in.
