In its ongoing quest to make inroads in the nascent New Jersey sports betting market, FanDuel Sportsbook is currently running three promotions designed to seriously mitigate those pesky drains on one’s bankroll.
Baseball postseason takes center stage
Fall is upon us, so two of FanDuel’s current initiatives fittingly include the MLB playoffs, which kicked off Tuesday. The National League’s Rockies-Cubs wild-card marathon showdown got the postseason started, while the American League features a Yankees-Athletics winner-take-all battle Wednesday. The subsequent Division Series will carry us through the majority of October.
However, we’re also in the heart of NFL season, which has already been responsible for some impressive sports betting numbers in New Jersey and other newly-minted sports betting markets around the country. So, FanDuel has a little Week 5 treat awaiting Garden State football fans as well.
Be a risk-free homer for AL Wild-Card Game

Pigskin props on the menu as well
Player prop bets are popular among bettors as an in-game form of engagement with a sporting event. An NFL game typically has a plethora of options in this regard. One of the most common involves trying to peg who’ll be the first player to cross the goal line in the contest.
With FanDuel Sportsbook’s Week 5 promo, take a stab at a skill player that’s highly likely to score and get your wager of up to $100 back if he hits paydirt at any point during the game other than for the initial touchdown.
