This upcoming weekend is another notable one for bettors. Plenty of popular sports are back at West Virginia sportsbooks, including another PGA Tour event and the return of the English Premier League.
As July approaches, more betting markets are becoming available. Sportsbooks are finally starting to look somewhat normal again.
While some retail books aren’t open for business quite yet, you’re able to wager through any of the WV online sports betting apps. They all feature more than enough odds for every sport currently playing.
Even though some of the major American sports are still working their way back, soccer fans should have no complaints.
England’s top level of soccer, the EPL, is back for the first time since the sports stoppage. It got underway with its first games on Wednesday.
The action starts up again on Friday afternoon and continues through the weekend. There are nine matches in total.
Bettors now have the majority of Europe’s top leagues available to bet on. The EPL joins Germany’s Bundesliga as well as Spain’s La Liga.
The Italian league, Serie A, also makes its comeback on Saturday. This marks the return of all of Europe’s biggest soccer leagues since France’s Ligue 1 is canceled.
Golf fans are in store for another exciting tournament, as well.
After a thrilling playoff finish to last week’s event, the world’s best will compete in the RBC Heritage this week. Players tee off on Thursday morning from the Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
DraftKings Sportsbook is offering several different promotions for this event, too.
Let’s examine the top betting options for the weekend and what deals are available to take advantage of.
Betting On EPL Soccer
The most popular soccer league in the world is back at sportsbooks this week. Bettors have several matches to wager on involving some of the EPL’s most famous clubs.
On Friday afternoon, Manchester United takes the pitch against Tottenham in what should be an exciting game. Although the league’s champion is all but set with Liverpool in first by 22 points, the remainder of the season is important for others.
Manchester United falls under that category as it currently sits in fifth place overall, just three points behind Chelsea. Tottenham is in eighth at the moment, however, it is only three points behind Sheffield in sixth.
FanDuel Sportsbook’s odds see this as a very tight matchup. It lists United as the slight favorites with +140 odds, while Tottenham is at +190.
The online sportsbook provides many other markets for this match, as well.
You can bet on Harry Kane being the first goal scorer with odds of +330. Marcus Rashford is the favorite to score first for United at +290.
FanDuel has even provided an odds boost for this contest.
You’re able to wager on Manchester United winning and there being at least three goals scored at odds of +320. This has been boosted from +272.
Another quality match takes place on Saturday morning between Arsenal and Brighton.
Arsenal, which sits in ninth place, is the favorite with odds of +130. FanDuel shows Brighton as the underdog at +200.
Again, the online sportsbook offers lines for many various props for every game.
Bettors can take Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score at any time with odds of -115. Brighton’s Neal Maupay has odds of +155.
RBC Heritage Promos At DraftKings
Another PGA Tour event, another DraftKings Sportsbook promotion. This week, bettors can take advantage of the online sportsbook’s newest deal based around the RBC Heritage golf tournament.
With the Golf Profit Boost, customers receive a 30% profit boost on one live wager during each of the first two rounds. The tournament started early Thursday morning.
After opting-in, you’ll get a single-use boost that you can use for a live bet of your choice. Bettors receive one boost for Thursday’s opening round, and one for Friday’s second round.
While the wager does need to be a live bet, parlays are included. The 30% boost will be applied to your winnings, not including the original bet.
The max bet for this promo is $50, with the max winnings capped at $250. Available boosts will expire at the end of each day.
If that wasn’t enough, DraftKings offers an additional promo for the third round on Saturday.
Just like the initial deal, bettors receive a 30% boost for one third-round wager. The only difference is this bet can be made live or prior to the start of the round.
You’ll have the opportunity to place a pre-match bet before the third round on either Friday night or Saturday morning.
Otherwise, the same rules apply. The max wager is $50 and the most you can win is $250. Parlays are also included.
Hopefully, the RBC Heritage will be just as exciting as last week’s golf action. Daniel Berger won the Charles Schwab Challenge in a tense playoff.
DraftKings will continually update its odds to win the event as play goes on. Before the tournament started, it listed these golfers as the favorites to win:
- Rory McIlroy +1200
