Top Promotions For Illinois Bettors For Conference Tournament Action For Tuesday 3/9/2021
It’s time for the good people of Illinois to clear their calendar for the next week and get ready to go all-in on the most magical time of the year – college basketball conference tournament season (and the promotions that come with it). Sure, the NCAA tournament gets all the real buzz. But the conference tournaments are the perfect appetizer to the main event next week, with its nonstop upsets and buzzer-beaters that alter the future of bubble teams forever.
Best Promotions for Illinois Sports Bettors
I’m here to help you make your money go further with the best promotions available to you today and the rest of the week. I do the work, so you don’t have to. Let’s break down the best promotions for Illinois sports bettors across PointsBet, William Hill, and DraftKings for college basketball this week (and some NBA and golf action as well).
Top Illinois PointsBet Promotions
Paige’s Make It Rain Pick of the Day
Promo: Place a $50+ bet on the spread and receive $3 for every three-pointer that your team scores in tonight’s BYU vs. Gonzaga Matchup
If you’re new to the party, the Paige Spiranac’s “Make it Rain” promo is a daily opportunity to bet on college basketball and win back free bet dollars regardless of the outcome. We covered the value of free bet dollars a few weeks back. But this is a great way to build yourself some insurance on games that you’ll be betting on anyway.
Tonight’s featured game is BYU vs. Gonzaga, the #1 team in the country who is unsurprisingly favored by 14 points in the WCC conference final. Obviously, Gonzaga has a great team, but BYU is no slouch. They’re 20-5 this year (2 of those losses to Gonzaga), #2 in the WCC, and have beaten some really solid teams like #18 San Diego State. 14 points is a lot to be giving, even for the #1 team in the country. I’d take BYU here, with the added bonus of capitalizing on their average of 8 three-pointers a game, and cash in on some free bet dollars.
Tonight’s boosted odds for Illinois bettors are focused on NBA futures and golf action. A full list of boosted odds can be found here, but here are some of your best deals.
NBA MVP Super Booster
Odds Boost: LeBron James to win Regular Season MVP (Boosted from +275 to +310)
Right now, LeBron is firmly in the #2 spot for the MVP rankings, behind Joel Embiid, who’s having a monster season, and just ahead of Jokić. There are other guys who could make a late-season push (Curry, Harden, Giannis, etc.). But right now, it’s a two-horse race. Embiid is looking unstoppable, but given his history of injuries, I’d bet on him missing at least a few games down the stretch, if not extended time, paving the way for a LeBron MVP in the late stages of his career.
Teddy Greenstein’s Boost of the Day: The Players Championship
Odds Boost: Bryson DeChambeau to Make 2+ Eagles in the Tournament (Boosted from +350 to +400)
Teddy Greenstein is the male, much less attractive version of Paige Spiranic in that he’s secured a daily promo deal with PointsBet. Teddy’s deal offers boosts on golf action, and today’s deal focuses on a crazy bet for Bryson DeChambeau to make 2 eagles in this weekend’s Players Championship. It’s a wild bet, but at these odds, there’s no harm in putting half a unit on this and hoping it pays out big time.
Top William Hill Illinois Promotions
Championship Week Free Bets
Promo: Place at least $50 in cumulative point spread wagers on men’s college basketball games and earn a $25 bonus. Participate every day from Wednesday to Friday for up to $75 in cash bonuses
A deal that you simply can’t say no to. If you’re like me, then you’re going to be betting on everything that moves this week. And $50 a day is looking like child’s play. For Illinois bettors looking to bet on the Big Ten tournament, this is a no-brainer option for stocking up free bet dollars to use on the NCAA tournament next week. If you’re going to be betting on college basketball, then this is the place to do it.
Risk-Free Bet up to $300 for new William Hill Users
Promo: Through Sunday, new Illinois users will get 100% of the money back from their first loss (up to $300) when betting with William Hill
William Hill is one of our favorite books. And they’re offering 100% risk-free bets for your first loss up to $300 for new users. You’d be silly to not jump all over this one.
Top Illinois DraftKings Promotions
Bet $4, Win $256 for new DraftKings Users
Promo: Bet $4 on a select underdog and win $256 if the bet is successful
This is certainly a huge opportunity to cash in for new DraftKings bettors. All you have to do is make your initial deposit and then bet $4 on one of the four select underdogs that DraftKings provides. If your team wins, then you get back $256 – an insane boosted odds of +6400.
Here are today’s underdog options to give you an idea:
The best part is, a lot of these “underdogs” are not that ridiculous of picks. Duke has looked solid recently but has had a real rough season and could easily get knocked off by BC. Southern Miss is barely even an underdog. They’re only getting 4 points against Rice and are an obvious pick for a moneyline boost. This promo only runs now through the tip-off of March Madness next week, so jump all over this today.
CBB Conference Tourney Mystery Box
Promo: Opt-in and receive one single-use mystery Profit Boost for college basketball from 25-200% profit boost
Now, this is a max $25 bet, but holy sheesh is this a good deal. When you opt-in, you’re randomly assigned one of the following rewards:
- 25% Odds Boost
- 50% Odds Boost
- 100% Odds Boost
- 200% Odds Boost
Even in the worst-case scenario, you’re making out pretty well with a 25% boost. And you still have a 50-50 shot of getting your odds at least doubled, if not more. I’ve said it a million times, but you’re going to be betting on college basketball anyway, so you Illinois bettors might as well take advantage of promotions like this while you can.
