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!

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!

Aaron Rodgers glides into the end zone after eluding the Rams D for a touchdown.

Last week we bet big on the Pack and Aaron Rodgers going off on the Rams D, and oh boy did it ever pay off.

Divisional Round Vibe Check (3-1)

Aaron Rodgers soared high above his over/under for yards, while easily slicing and dicing up the Los Angeles defenders. Aaron Donald was just below his usual, healthy, game-wrecking self, and it definitely makes you think this one would've been closer had he been 100%. It also has to make you wonder what's wrong with the Seattle Seahawks. How have they managed to waste Russell Wilson this badly? At least, they have their eyes on a bright future for him. Yikes.

The Bills came through in a big way against the Baltimore Ravens, but not how anyone had predicted. Defense was the name of the game when anyone with an All-22 subscription was calling for a shootout of epic proportions. Sure, I lost on a couple special overs that had this game getting into the sixties, but Josh Allen still brought me to the promised land of profits.

Each Friday, FindBet will preview the week's DFS slate, highlighting players that are priced well on DFS sites, as well as some contrarian plays that can push your team to the top of the leader board.

Most NFL DFS games have you putting a team together with players from a certain slate of games. It could be just Sunday 1:00 PM games, or it could be every game that is slated for the week. Once the last game that has eligible players is over, the final payouts are made according to how many fantasy points each team scored. Each player is worth a certain dollar amount, and you have a cap of $60,000 to build your team with. You have to have 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX (RB, WR, or TE) and 1 DEF.

The general scoring rules include (6) points for each rushing and receiving touchdown, (4) points for each passing touchdown, (0.1) points for each rushing and receiving yard gained, (0.04) points for each passing yard, and also (0.5) points for each reception. There are other scoring opportunities for defenses. Let's take a look at players we like in the first round of the NFL playoffs this weekend.

Sunday's NFL Playoff action featured six teams who don't like each other at all.

All these games were played between teams who had played each other at least once during the regular season. If you thought those games in the regular season were intense, Sunday's playoff matchups upped the stakes even more.

The Chicago Bears even replicated a dubious feat from their regular season matchup, as one of their wide receiver Anthony Miller was ejected after throwing a punch at C.J. Gardner-Johnson. The New Orleans cornerback also got into the head of Chicago wide receiver Javon Wims in the November matchup, causing Wims to get ejected in that game after he threw a punch at Gardner-Johnson.
