DraftKings Sportsbook is always running some fun promotions related to different events on the sporting calendar and they’ve got another cool one on the board.
To mark the start of the 2020 NFL season, they’re running a promo in honor of the start of the 101st campaign, giving you a boost on the Kansas City Chiefs.
You’ll want to take advantage of this as it’s essentially free money. Let’s take a closer look at the promo:
Kansas City Point Spread Set At +101
You might do a double-take here with that heading but yes, that’s right: DraftKings Sportsbook is letting you bet the Kansas City Chiefs at +101 when they host the Houston Texans for the Thursday night opener.
That means for you to lose the bet, the Chiefs would have to lose the game by 102 points. In case you’re wondering, no NFL team has ever scored 100 points in a game (most ever scored was 73 by the Chicago Bears). That means that barring some kind of miracle, you’re going to win the bet on Thursday.
The main stipulations here is that you have to be in Pennsylvania to bet and be at least 21 years of age. If you already have an account at DraftKings Sportsbook, then you know the drill.
The max bet for this promo is $50, so you’ll end up with $45.50 in profit at the end of the day.
Chiefs vs Texans – First Game of 2020
The start of the 2020 season will be on Thursday, September 10th when the Chiefs host the Houston Texans. In case you’re wondering, the current spread on the game is Chiefs -9.5, so you’re clearly getting some value (understatement of the century) by getting a bump to +101.
The Chiefs and Texans squared off a couple of times last season. In the regular-season meeting, the Texans actually went into Arrowhead Stadium and earned a 31-24 win. The Chiefs actually built a 17-3 lead in that game before eventually losing.
In the playoffs, it was the Texans that built an early lead as they were up 24-0 early in the second quarter. However, the Chiefs outscored them 51-7 the rest of the way en route to a 51-31 win.
Hopefully, we’ve got another entertaining affair in store for Thursday but if you bet the DraftKings promo, you probably won’t be sweating the spread too much.
