Working from home the last few months hasn't been the easiest. I miss hanging out with my buddies, and having pretty limited live sports on TV has been a bummer.

I'm a sports fiend - you name it, I love it. A few of my buddies have always been into sports betting, but for me, just being a spectator is enough.

My friend Dave told us that FanDuel Sportsbook is gearing up for NFL week 2 by offering some pretty awesome odds for new users. As I said, watching sports is enough for me, but Dave wouldn't stop hyping up FanDuel, so I decided to check it out.

FanDuel Sportsbook is an online betting platform that makes betting on your favorite sports a breeze. They have a rookie-friendly app that allows you to make bets and keep up with the action all in one place.

To celebrate the start of the NFL season, FanDuel Sportsbook has an exclusive enhanced offer I couldn't miss!

NFL Week 2 Matchups & enhanced odds boost for new users who sign up:

Giants +2000 vs Bears, max $10. NJ only

Eagles +1000 vs Rams, max $10. PA & WV only

Broncos +1500 vs Steelers, max $10. CO only

Colts +1000 vs Vikings, max $10. IN only

Signing up for a FanDuel Sportsbook account couldn't be easier. You can sign up online or through the app, which is free to download. They'll ask you for some basic info like your social security #, so that they can keep all of your information safe.

Making deposits and cashing out winnings is also super easy, all I had to do was link up my debit card or bank account. Plus, on top of the enhanced odds, they also have another sick offer for their new users- a $1000 risk-free bet!

When you sign up, all you have to do is place a wager up to $1000( the minimum requirement to get started is $10). If you win, you get the amount returned and as well as the winning amount to use as site credit. And even if you lose, you will receive the amount back to try your luck again.

Dave convinced all of the guys to get in on the action, and now I'm even more pumped for the game. I can't wait to see who comes out on top and hopefully win some cash!

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.
