DraftKings Sportsbook’s Best Promo Code & Bonus (Wednesday, Jan. 22): NBA Boosters
DraftKings is offering four Zion-related odds boosts today for his first official NBA game. Let’s take a look at all of them.
Here are two that go hand-in-hand if you think he makes a triumphant return:
Zion Williamson to record a double-double
Boosted from +375 to +440
Zion Williamson to record over 19.5 points
Boosted from +210 to +250
With Zion going down in the preseason, we have no regular season sample size to go off in regards to how he’ll fit in with this NOLA squad.
But, here’s what we do know:
In just four preseason games with New Orleans, Zion averaged 23.3 PPG and 6.5 RPG. In college the Zion Show was on full display, as he averaged 22.6 PPG and 8.9 RPG.
For what its worth, our Fantasy Labs projections project Zion to score 12.5 points and 5.7 rebounds tonight.
It is his first game back, so no one will blame you if you want to tread carefully. But the Pelicans did take their time getting him back on the court, and he’s been practicing for a few weeks.
If you’re banking on a Zion breakout in his official debut, you won’t find better odds than these at DraftKings.
Zion Williamson to score the first Field Goal
Boosted from +400 to +470
By all accounts, the Pelicans are expected to start Zion tonight. If you think they look to get his career started with a bang, this is the bet for you.
How sweet would an alley-oop for his first bucket be?
Zion Williamson to win Rookie of the Year
Boosted from +1800 to +2000
Because Zion has missed 44 games already this season, he’s a longshot to win the MVP, behind front-runner Ja Morant.
Zion has missed 44 games this season. Patrick Ewing won ROY playing 50 games in 1985 — fewest of any winner.
Still, these odds are very generous. Some other sportsbooks have Zion’s ROY odds as short as 9-1.
One of DraftKings’ best daily promotions offered this month is their NBA pregame protection, which stipulates that if the team you bet on scores 110+ points and loses, you get a Free Bet (promotion good for up to $25).
There is a huge NBA slate tonight, so if you want to take advantage of this no-brainer promo, make sure you opt-in on DK’s homepage.
Wednesday’s College Basketball Boosters
Michigan to Win & Over 147.5 total points
Boosted from +145 to +180
Michigan is a 5-point favorites at home tonight against Penn State. For this booster to cash, you need the Wolverines to win outright and for both teams to score 148 points or more combined.
Michigan has stumbled as of late, but the Wolverines have been solid at home this season, posting an 8-1 record. Scoring wise, Michigan comes into this game ranked 20th in team scoring, putting up 78.2 PPG. Penn State comes in just one spot down (21st), scoring 77.9 PPG.
