I knew it was going to happen.

Not only did I fly in the face of the gambling gods and decide to comment on my little bit of good luck, I broke another cardinal rule of betting: Never put money on something just to put money on it.

Look, I couldn't resist trying to get in on some of that Taysom Hill magic. I missed on him in my fantasy leagues, and I couldn't stop myself at just taking the Saints, which did hit by the way(!), I was forced to pick an over/under on the most unknowable of the world's mysteries. Was it possible for Taysom to throw a good ball? Turns out, yes. Turns out, he can get a little more oomph on his throws, which opened up things downfield, even if they weren't always right on the money. Lessons… Noted.

For the game that sent a chill down my spine, the Dolphins lost to the Broncos. If I actually designated a "Lock of the Week," this would've been the "Lock of Lifetime." Tua had been hot, the Miami D had been stout, and the Broncos had been a state of utter disrepair. Just when you think you know football, quoting stats and pulling from trends, it absolutely humbles you into the ground.

As for the Browns covering over the Eagles that was a little bit like betting on paint drying. It was never really in doubt and it wasn't particularly interesting.

At this point, I may never bet on the NFC West again.

Week 10 Vibe Check (2-2)

At this point, I may never bet on the NFC West again. After losing to the Rams last week, Seattle turned around and beat the Cardinals on Thursday night. Every matchup in that division is a heavyweight bout and it's hard to justify betting on one when they can all throw a haymaker at any time. Meanwhile, the Bengals weren't ready for a D like the Steelers and the QB of the future looked stuck in the present reality for the time being.

As for our wins, in a shocking turn of events, betting against the Chargers WORKED! Or, perhaps, I should say betting on the Dolphins worked. Brian Flores looks more and more like he was the true key to the Patriots defensive success in recent years. He took on two NFC teams back to back and cruised against the poor, befuddled Chargers. Tua coming into his own has certainly helped, as well.

Brandon Aiyuk tallied a whopping seven catches down in New Orleans, even as the 49ers completely sputtered and blew a chance to upset a Drew Brees-less Saints. This continues a month long streak of calling player props, which is almost certain to end this week after pointing out its existence. *Fingers crossed* *No jinx* *Reverse jinx*

It's the most wonderful time of the yeaaaaaaaaar. Football, we mean football.

Football is America's sport and we love just about everything about it. The snacks, the beer, and of course, the action on the field.

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. 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. That wasn't made very clear and kind of put a dampener on our whole experience.

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 2020 NFL 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.
