Three Sportsbook Promos You Need to Take Advantage of TodayMay 24, 2023, 4:14PM
Here at Dimers, we love finding that extra edge in your bets. It’s our entire philosophy; to beat the sportsbooks over time, we have to utilize every extra advantage over the house that we can. One of the best ways to do that is through the various promos on offer any given day. Whether a pre-made boost, an extra odds surge for you to add onto a bet or a risk-free wager, these are all ways to turn an additional profit over time. DraftKings has a handful of quality promos on top today, so let’s make the best use of them.
If you’re not signed up at DraftKings, make sure you do so here, where you’ll score $150 in bonus bets for placing your first $5 wager. If you’ve already got DraftKings, check out our Best Sportsbooks page for every promo offer available to you, although you won’t get the advantage of these three bets below outside of DraftKings.
Best Sportsbook Promos for Wednesday, May 24
1. Risk-Free MLB Wager
Your max bet will likely vary here, but this is an excellent promo to get things started. Any MLB bet of your choosing: a straight wager, SGP, or traditional parlay. It will apply to the first bet you make after opting in, so don’t opt in to the promo until you’re ready to place your risk-free wager. Since you’re getting the bet back in a bonus if you lose, it’s ideal to go for something a little bit more of a longshot rather than you’re traditional wager. Low risk, high reward.
We recommend this play based on what our advanced simulation model has identified:
Alec Burleson (STL) To Hit a Home Run +550: Burleson gets a 23.3% probability to hit a HR against the Reds based on our model and gets the highest +EV edge on the board at 7.9%.
2. Add +200 to any First Goalscorer in Hurricanes-Panthers
This is such a fun bet. First goalscorer wagers are rarely +EV so they don’t often pop up in our best NHL props. However, getting a nice 2-unit boost on a one makes it much more appealing. We recommend checking out our goalscorer probabilities on our Hurricanes-Panthers Game prediction page to make your pick. You can get both anytime and first probabilities, the latter of which we’re dropping for you here:
Hurricanes-Panthers Game 3 – First Goalscorer probabilities and odds:
M Tkachuk - 6.4% (+900)
S Aho - 6.2% (+1100)
S Reinhart - 5.6% (+1400)
S Bennett - 5.4% (+1300)
C Verhaeghe - 4.9% (+1100)
A Barkov - 4.9% (+1300)
S Jarvis - 4.8% (+1400)
J Kotkaniemi - 4.3% (+1700)
S Noesen - 3.6% (+1700)
P Stastny - 3.5% (+2500)
We’d say pick the three or four guys you’re most comfortable backing based on the probabilities and add your +200 boost to the one with the lowest odds. Then sprinkle a little on each guy you like, so for example, if your usual bet size is $10, maybe throw $5 on each of the three or four players you want to bet on.
3. 33% SGPx Boost
This one allows us the most flexibility. If you’re unfamiliar, an SGPx allows users to combine a Same Game Parlay with one or more additional wagers from other events. To qualify, we’ll need at least three legs (minimum two to make the SGP and the third for the “x”) and they’ll need to be no shorter than -500 odds (-550 would not qualify). To make this bet, we’ll be using two of our tools: the Parlay Picker and our NHL Best Bets.
We’re going to make a baseball SGP and combine it with our best NHL bet from Hurricanes-Panthers Game 3.
Our MLB SGP is in the Dodgers-Braves game and we’re targeting two of our highest probability props: Austin Riley (-230) and David Peralta (-205) to each get a hit. This SGP gives us odds of +110.
The best NHL bet given to us by DimersBOT is Over 5.5 goals in Game 3 at +105. Adding this leg brings our SGPx to +330. Add on the boost and we’re sitting at +439, a great price when considering that we have three +EV bets rolled into one.
There you have it, the three best promos you should take advantage of today. Feel free to use our selections or try out our tools and find something you love even more! There’s no limit to what you can create with these promos and getting creative is part of what makes sports betting fun.
