I love watching football on Sundays and cannot believe we are halfway through. Whether it is watching my favorite team play or watching my 3 fantasy teams, I thought I can never get enough. However, after sitting on the sidelines watching my friends bet (legally and illegally) for years now, I finally tried something new: FanDuel Sportsbook.
I've really never been much of a bettor on games. It wasn't legal when I got into Fantasy and I didn't know much about placing the right parlay. For me, the excitement of going to the occasional live game or just having everyone over was a good way to get more excitement from the weekend. But, with FanDuel Sportsbook now legal in my state, those friends who come on Sunday were now legally betting on specific games and winning some decent money. So, this past weekend, I had to finally join in and bet on the NFL slate with them.
First, the best news for first time users, FanDuel Sportsbook offers great weekly promotions. There’s also the incredible New User Offer: No Sweat $1000. This means you will get up to $1000 back in Free Bets if you lose your first bet!

The overall process of signing up is pretty easy... I downloaded the app from the App Store and created an account by giving them my email, debit card, and Social Security #. My Social was needed to make sure all betters are legit and blocks players, coaches, and referees from betting.
The app surprised me TBH--it's super easy to get the hang of, and it's packed full of useful tips and tutorials that helped me learn the ropes in no time. They list all the sports on the left (not just football), and you can make different kinds of bets, like money-line, over/under, teasers, parlays and more.
I decided to use my first bet on the Jets to win with the spread. Let's just say this was my favorite Sunday I've had with the guys in years. As we bet on many other games throughout the day, including baseball, it was loads of fun all rooting for the same outcome to teams and scores we typically wouldn't care much about: the extra money in our pocket wasn't bad either. Best part is right after the game ends, you can cash out your winnings right away.
FanDuel Sportsbook is going to make Sunday's even more fun. So make sure you're not left on the sidelines and take advantage of these amazing promos.
