Best Sportsboook Promos for NFL Week 3
There are a lot of sportsbooks in Maryland, so we are only going to take a look at the very best promotions for NFL games this week. First, there is the guaranteed bonus that is being offered by DraftKings. With this one, after you place a $5 wager, you get $200 in bonus bets instantly.
What is a bonus bet? It is a bet that you can make without putting up any of your own money. When you win, you receive a cash payout that you can withdraw if you choose to do so.
The Caesar Sportsbook promo offer is constructed differently. When you take advantage of this special, the amount of your first bet is refunded in the form of a bonus bet if you lose. There is a $1,000 limit, but that is quite generous when you compare it to similar offers.
Crab Sports is another sportsbook that you should definitely check out to give a local operator a boost. This is not one of those big multi-state books – Crab Sports does business in Maryland only, and they are partnered with Baltimore institution Jimmy’s Famous Seafood.
Their welcome offer for new users has the same general structure as the Caesars offer. The limit is $250, but that’s fine if you have no intention of betting more than that amount.
More Minshew Mania?
Colts rookie starting quarterback Anthony Richardson suffered a concussion last week, and he was replaced by backup Gardner Minshew. Upon entry into the game, Minshew engineered three consecutive scoring drives in a hostile environment. In all, he completed 19 of 23 passes with one TD in a 31-20 Colts victory.
Richardson has been in concussion protocol throughout the week, so there’s a good chance that we will see Minshew behind center again when the Colts take the field against the Ravens.
Ravens Looking Strong
Last week, Baltimore went to Cincinnati and came out on the right side of the 27-24 score. Lamar Jackson was on top of his game, connecting on 24 of his 33 passes for 237 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. He also ran the ball 12 times for 54 yards, and the defense limited the Bengals to just 66 yards on the ground.
Our Pick for Colts-Ravens
We definitely love the Ravens to win this game outright, but they are 8-point favorites, and we are not anxious to lay that kind of lumber. However, there is an angle that we would pursue if we were using one of these Maryland sportsbook bonuses.
Both Colts games that have been played this year have eclipsed the total, and going back to last year, 7 of their last 8 have gone over. The Ravens game last week went over the total as well, and we look for more of the same. We would play the over, and at the time of this writing, the total at DraftKings is 45.
