How to Sign up for NFL Betting Bonuses in NJ

It’s easy to redeem the welcome bonuses at New Jersey sportsbooks. Players only need to sign up at their sportsbook of choice, enter the promo code (if necessary), make their first deposit, and place their first bet.

For offers that reward the player with bonus bets for making an initial bet, that’ll complete the process – the bonus bets will be awarded to their account. For first-bet insurance offers, players will have to wait and see whether their first bet wins.

The NFL betting promotions hardly end at welcome offers, however. Several of the above sportsbooks have bet-and-get tokens and other promotions available specifically for players who place bets on the upcoming NFL playoff games. For an up-to-date list of available promotions, New Jersey bettors can check the designated promotions tab on their sportsbook’s website or mobile app.

NFL Playoff Best Bets

New Jersey NFL fans have no shortage of options when betting on the playoffs. Fans can bet on the traditional lines of their favorite team – things like moneyline, spread, and total bets – as well as the player and team props they’re used to seeing, but each sportsbook will also offer several markets unique to the playoff season. Many of these markets can be found under the futures category, where fans are used to seeing – and can still bet on – markets for the eventual Super Bowl winner.

These markets include (but aren’t limited to) lines on players from each playoff team to lead the tournament in passing, rushing, and receiving yards. Right now, Christian McCaffrey is the preeminent favorite to lead the postseason in both rushing yards and touchdowns – which is especially impressive given the 49ers didn't play on wildcard weekend.

Fans of teams that entered the tournament at the bottom of the bracket, and thus with lower expectations of advancing, can bet on their favorite athletes to win these categories at great odds. Players like Packers quarterback Jordan Love, or Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco could lead bettors to windfall payouts with their teams advancing multiple rounds.
