lol.... i think the same thing... kinda like Cigs, dont see as many ads nowadays, but same tag linw "might cause cancer".... they know more will lose than win- and they def do not want any of the losers calling that number. 

Speaking of.... haven't seen the SJU line from Saturday or today on Fanduel of Draftkings.... for the regulars- is this normal?



I am assuming you are in new york.  You cant bet on college teams in the state you are betting in.  Home or away.

Thanks for the clarification Eric, I was wondering the same thing and thought it might be because of what you said. Speaking of SJU, went with them +15 and Xavier +3 in 2 team teaser tonight through a friend. Also had UNLV last night and have Duke tonight(pick em) as a 2 team teaser. I'm spending way too much time on this lol

I didn't bet yesterday but my cousin was asking me about unlv game which I told him although I usually look at dogs to bet that unlv was a good play giving 5-6.   The xavier line has swung so you have good value in that now.  Good luck!!

I am opening a caesars account to take advantage of their great sign up bonuses so I'm trying to find the one game I am in love with.  Hopefully I can find that one game I feel really good about.

Yep, saw the swing and jumped from Nova -1 to Xavier -1 and jumped on Xavier, as counterintuitive as that may seem lol. I also saw that Caesar's promo and will likely sign up and give it a try. Let me know what you decide. Good luck!

has to be something else.

I know for a fact you can’t bet in state college teams in the state you bet in.   If you are in Philly you can bet New York teams on your same account.  It’s the state you are in at the time you can’t bet those college teams.

Has anyone used Caesars? It's not allowing me to bet as it can't find my location. I tried the obvious location items on the phone. Was wondering if anyone ran into something similar. Thanks.

Ok.  So I am going to give a synopsis of my opinion and take on 3 of the Sportsbooks I have used so far. 

They all offer new register bonuses.  All have live betting options (some more than others). But there are big differences overall in my opinion. 


For new players I definitely recommend Caesar’s for their initial deposit bonus. Especially if you go big and take advantage of their match up to 3 grand.  By registering they give you $300 off the bat.  Then they match your deposit up to 3 grand.  Only need to roll over your initial deposit one time in order to withdraw.    But I don’t love their app and it logs you off very quickly.  
And also their withdrawal process seems bad.  3 plus days to process etc which is ridiculous in my opinion.  I’m still waiting on my initial deposit money. 

FanDuel has a decent initial deposit offer by matching up to 1000.  Their app is pretty good overall. They also offer some cash out options while games are going on which is a great addition.  One which Caesar’s doesn’t offer.  At least I didn’t notice on their site.  
Fan duel is pretty quick turnaround on withdrawals many times by the next day. 


Although DraftKings offers the worst of the new player sign up bonus ( 20% of your initial deposit up to 1,000 total bonus) they are hands down THE BEST Sportsbook in my opinion.  They offer so many more options to bet.  They have so many alternate lines to choose from it’s like you can create your own line for a game.  And it adjusts odds.  So for example.  If you like a dog getting 9 points so much for their money line.  You can make the line +4 with odds of +200 roughly.  It’s a great option in case your dog doesn’t win the game.  Also their live betting is amazing. Best of the 3 I’ve seen.   And DraftKings also offers the ever important cash out option on a lot of your bets.    Even their live betting you can live bet for the first half as well as the game.  I haven’t seen that before.  It just offers so much more to bet in my opinion and I’m sure I haven’t seen most of what they offer.  Plus their app interface is the best to me as well.    And although their initial bonus isn’t as high as the others, they do offer many many promos once you sign up.  I already received 2 $250 free bets after meeting their requirements.    
Also, DraftKings is very good with withdrawals like fan duel by the next day. 


So that’s it in a nutshell   I didn’t use the bet rivers app yet (rush street interactive ) which is the 4th book allowed at this point.   And also tomorrow bet mgm starts being allowed to operate and I see they have a match 1000 bonus like FanDuel.
