Yeah, so if you’re not a big baseball fan, or live under a rock, Trout is the real deal. He’s near even money to win the AL MVP each season and sports a lifetime .305 batting average. To the chagrin of Oakland fans, he has 157 hits in 140 career games vs. the Athletics.
In short, you’re going to want to bet on this promo which is offering crazy 10-1 odds on Trout to get at least one hit on Friday night.

If he comes through, you’ll have $250 cash deposited into your DraftKings account. Yes, that’s right: cash — no free bets or rollovers with this promotion.
While Trout getting a hit isn’t a lock, it’s also wayyyyyy more likely than the +1000 odds suggest. You could put a decent high school player out there and they’d probably have better than a 10-1 chance of getting one hit in a handful of at-bats.
Over the past three seasons, Trout has gotten a hit in about 70% of his games, which would equate to about -230 odds. The +1000 odds for this promo are equivalent to a 9.1% chance, which means you’re getting a 60+% edge!
At the end of the day, we can add up the elements and see what we get: Mike Trout + 60% betting edge + $250 payout (in cash!) = INSANE PROMO.
