Step 3: Place a bet
DraftKings has one of the largest selections of available bets. From the four major sports in the United States to international sports, there’s something to bet on for everyone.
You can bet on the NFL at DraftKings year round. This means from the offseason to the preseason to the Super Bowl.
For each game, you’ll be able to bet on the moneyline, spread and total – as well as game and player props if provided and legal in your state.
On top of the individual games, you can also bet on futures. DraftKings offers futures for player awards, win totals, playoff participation, etc. You can even bet on the upcoming NFL Draft.
Finally, you can also take advantage of the same game parlay feature and/or the flash bet feature – which allows you to bet on the next play of the game.
Betting on the NBA is similar to betting on the NFL. You can bet on individual games, use same game parlays and bet on futures from the NBA Draft to the NBA Finals.
DraftKings also allows you to bet on 1st basket props, head-to-head player props and even props surrounding record-breaking events.
With 162 regular season games to bet on per team, DraftKings has bettors covered. There are bets (in-game also) for moneyline, run line and totals. You can also live bet the current batter.
As for the futures, you can bet on the league winners in the offseason and then bet on World Series winners, player awards, division winners and much more.
When betting on the NHL, there’s a lot you can use to find the perfect bet. You can use the regular puck line, total or spread or you could use alternate lines for each game. Furthermore, you can bet on a team to win in regulation to find a little more value.
DraftKings also allows you to bet on specific goalie props, shots on goal and team totals. There’s a myriad of props available for each game, as well as an elaborate futures market.
For normal soccer games, you can bet on a three-way moneyline. For tournament games, you can bet on when the game will end and which team will win outright.
Furthermore, you can bet on goal scoring, assists and many more game props.
Not only can you bet on the winner of a specific tournament, but you can also bet on a golfer to make or miss the cut or the final position of the golfer.
It can seem hard to bet on a single player to make it out of a tournament, but the odds and payout will reflect that challenge.
Betting on tennis is fairly straightforward. You can bet on who you think will win the match, the over/under on the games and/or how many games a player will win by. There are also future bets available for notable tournaments.
Betting on MMA is also straightforward. You can bet on who will win the fight, the way the fight will end and when the fight will end. You could also bet on who will be the champion of a certain division weight at the end of the year or make a fight parlay.
At DraftKings, you can bet on who will win the race each week and you can also place a future on who will win the Cup Series.
Betting on Boxing is similar to betting on MMA, as bettors can bet on a fight winner and the time and manner in which it’s completed.
