We’ve come to the stretch run of the calendar year and a fantastic time for sports. Thanksgiving brings the final week of college football’s regular season, a full day of NFL games, and big games in college and pro basketball.

Whether you’re traveling or at home and giving thanks for the expansion of regulated sports betting, there are some great offers from your friends at the sportsbooks for Thanksgiving this year.

Thanksgiving 2019 sportsbook promos

1. DraftKings Free $5 Bet & Up To $100 Money Back On Parlay

Who doesn’t like free money? Seriously, after all the spending on Thanksgiving dinner and the lead-up to holiday gift buying, who couldn’t use a boost to the bankroll?

Well, DraftKings wants to get some skin in the games for Thanksgiving. Log in on Thursday and you’ll find a $5 Free Bet waiting for you — for Thanksgiving Day only. Think you can pick the winners of the NFL trio? Go ahead. Like a prop bet for the NBA weekend? Take a shot. Want to try a future bet? Like the stretchy waist on your “feasting” sweatpants, nothing’s stopping you.

On top of that, DraftKings is offering a risk-free Thanksgiving parlay up to $100 for new users. All you need to do is make a bet on each of the three football games on Thanksgiving Day and combine them into a parlay. If the parlay hits, congrats, you win! And if the parlay busts, you’ll receive a free bet matching the original wager amount (up to $100). It’s a bet you can not lose!

2. DraftKings Flash Bet “Appetizer”

Thanksgiving is not a fun holiday for those of us who hate waiting. Meals take hours to prepare, traffic is extra unbearable, and the checkout lines at stores take FOREVER.

Luckily, DraftKings has the solution for the impatient: Flash bets! Their in-game betting options have expanded to football with next team to score or result of drive options.

DraftKings wants players to try it out on Thanksgiving. Make a risk-free bet of $5 on any of the NFL games with a Flash Bet and if the bet loses, you get a free bet in your account.

3. FanDuel Sportsbook Free Bets

5. PointsBet’s “First TD Payout” for Bears-Lions

Thanksgiving is one major holiday the US created that has expanded to other countries and cultures. Even in Australia, where it’s the start of most growing seasons (because it’s spring), people have started to roast turkeys and give thanks with their families in November.

The folks at PointsBet know that it means a lot here. They’d like fans to enjoy that time and are offering to payout money line bets on the early game if your team scores the first touchdown. Ya know, so you can sit at the table and NOT get yelled at for checking your phone for updates.

This is another simple promotion from one of the best unique content books in the biz. Make a pre-game moneyline bet of up to $100 on the Bears or Lions. If either team gets the first touchdown, their bettors win instantly.

Yeah, this has been a disappointing year for two of the NFL’s oldest teams. Yeah, it may take a while for that TD to be scored if Stafford doesn’t play and Mitch Trubisky keeps playing like he has. However, with the average Thanksgiving dinner starting around 2 p.m., it should allow those fans in the Eastern and Central time zones to square this bet away before the call to the table.
