The Three Best DraftKings Deals For NFL Wild Card Betting In Indiana

Posted on January 14, 2022 - Last Updated on March 20, 2024

DraftKings is gearing up for the opening round of the NFL playoffs. The sportsbook has a trio of new promotions available to make the most of the occasion.

The Wild Card action will begin on Jan. 15 when the Las Vegas Raiders take on the Cincinnati Bengals. The kickoff for that game is at 4:30 p.m.

DraftKings Bet $5, Win $280

The first new deal from DraftKings is a fantastic opportunity if you’ve never tried the sportsbook before. This promotion is for new users only, so you’ll have to sit this one out if you already have a DraftKings account.

The company’s “Bet $5, Win $280” deal is exactly what it sounds like.

If you bet $5 on any NFL team, then you’ll win $280 from DraftKings if your bet wins. That’s an incredible value that you can only find with sign-up offers like this.

That $280 will enter your account as seven different $40 bonus bets. You’ll only have a week to use those bonus bets before they expire, so be sure to place some wagers.

If you’re interested in using the deal, just sign up for DraftKings and make your first deposit.

Once your account is all set up, just place your first bet on any NFL team’s moneyline.

One of the best parts of this deal is its flexibility.

Don’t love the latest NFL Wild Card odds? No problem. This promotion is available until Feb. 13, so you have plenty of time to get in on the action.

DraftKings NFL Hammer The Over

If you already have a DraftKings account, then this deal is for you.

DraftKings is bringing back its stellar “Hammer The Over” promotion for the Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots game. That game is taking place on Jan. 15.

Hammer The Over lets gamblers decide their own fates. For every 5,000 bettors that use the deal, the over/under total for the Bills game will drop by half a point.

DraftKings is an incredibly popular online sportsbook in Indiana. Hoosiers bet over $148 million with the company during December alone.

Toss in gamblers from the rest of the US, and deals like Hammer The Over end up getting a lot of attention.

That type of popularity usually means that deals like this become near-guaranteed wins for gamblers. The idea is for DraftKings to attract gamblers with the hope that they’ll stick around after the deal is over.

Regardless of whether or not you become a regular with the sportsbook, this deal is a can’t-miss opportunity for NFL Wild Card. After all, free money is the best money.

There’s a max bet for this deal, but it will vary from one person to another. Most gamblers end up near a $25 limit.

If you’re looking to hop on this deal, then just find it under the “Promos” section of the DraftKings website or app to get started.

NFL Same Game Parlay deal

DraftKings has a third deal on the board to celebrate the NFL Wild Card schedule.

This one works for both new and existing users, so everyone can get in on the fun.

The promotion is a bonus same game parlay deal that you can use on any NFL game this weekend.

If you’re not familiar with parlay betting, then don’t worry, it’s actually a simple process.

Parlays are betting on multiple outcomes at the same time, rather than individually. Same game parlays are when those multiple bets are all on the same event.

So for example, betting the over on Josh Allen’s passing yards, while also betting on the Bills moneyline. All of the outcomes you bet on have to hit in order for you to win your wager.

Parlays trade higher risk for a better payout. That increased risk can scare some gamblers off, but promotions like this one can help alleviate those concerns.

The DraftKings bonus deal will refund you up to $10 if your same game parlay loses. That makes this a great opportunity to try same game parlays without dealing with the usual risk.

If you’re using this promotion, just be sure to opt-in to the deal before you place your wager.

This trio of promotions gives Hoosiers plenty of betting options for NFL Wild Card games. More sportsbook deals will release throughout the playoffs, so check in with your favorite sportsbook for the complete list of options.
