Welcome to the Mock Draft lab.

This is where we are running experiments, crunching the numbers, and proving hypotheses, so you can reap the rewards of our hard work. The rules for this exercise were simple: Take the best pitcher in each round without reaching more than 10 spots away in either direction. (This kept us honest and realistic as to who would be available and prevented any major overpays for talent.)

Now that March Madness is over, here are a few games to mark on your calendar this week to keep feeding your sports appetite.

After a thrilling season of college basketball we saw Stanford take home their first Women's NCAA Basketball title in 29 years while on the men's side Baylor handed Gonzaga their first and only loss of the season and earned the school's first Men's NCAA championship. Since we didn't have the tournaments last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was amazing getting to see the highlights and the drama return, and both tournaments delivered on the promise of madness.

While you may be missing going to live games (us too), one great way to make watching from home all the more exciting is to dabble in a little sports betting.

We've been doing our research and found the top two sports betting platforms: FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook. Here's how they compare.

Key Similarities

  • Both allow you to place bets on their app or website
  • Both offer a huge variety of betting options and sports
  • Both registration processes are easy and can be done in a matter of minutes

Key Differences

  • FanDuel Sportsbook's new user offer is unbeatable- - a $1000 risk-free bet!
  • DraftKings has a $1,000 risk-free bet, but you only get 20% of that bonus upfront and need to bet $25 to get each remaining $1 in bonus credit.
  • FanDuel Sportsbook's website is packed with tips for newbies
  • FanDuel offers amazing enhanced odds on a regular basis

FanDuel Sportsbook Overview

FanDuel Sportsbook nailed the betting game with their informative website and easy-to-use website. They have betting for every sport you can think of - football, soccer, NBA, MLB, golf, and tons more!

What we love about FanDuel Sportsbook is that their offer for new users is really no strings attached. All you have to do is place a wager up to $1,000, and they'll match the bet-- no strings attached. If you win, then you get the amount returned to you, and the winning amount as site credit. No hidden criteria; it's really that easy.

Signing up for a FanDuel Sportsbook account couldn't be easier, and can be done online or on the FanDuel Sportsbook app. They'll ask you for your SSN, but don't worry, this is just to make sure coaches and players aren't making any bets.

The app runs smoothly, and as we said, if you're new to sports betting, FanDuel Sportsbook makes getting up to speed a total breeze. Keep an eye out for special enhanced odds, too. These guys come up with some unmissable odds you're gonna wanna take advantage of.

DraftKings Overview

DraftKings also has a convenient app, and offers a huge variety of sports and betting types. But, what really made us not even want to place a bet is how misleading their "$1,000 risk-free bet" is.

First of all, that's not as good as FanDuel's offer, and secondly, you only get 20% of that bonus upfront and need to bet $25 to get each remaining $1 in bonus credit. Essentially, you have to play through $25k to get that full $1k.

DraftKings also doesn't have as many tutorials and tips, which can alienate new users.

Final Notes

Sports betting is a huge part of the NBA and March Madness season, and we couldn't be more excited. But if you're trying to choose what platform is best, our pick is FanDuel Sportsbook.

The app is so straightforward, you can cash out your winnings at any time (no matter how big or small) and most importantly, FanDuel Sportsbook's risk-free bet is exactly that: risk-free.
