What to bet on at WV sportsbooks during the weekend of June18

West Virginia sports betting apps present bettors with more options for the weekend of June 18-20. This is especially true for those considering wagers on the RBC Heritage and the English Premier League.

BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel all feature special promotions for those events this weekend. There are some new futures WV bettors might want to check out as well.

Breaking down the RBC Heritage action at WV sports betting apps

The action on the links at Hilton Head in South Carolina began Thursday morning. If you haven’t gotten your RBC Heritage bets down already, you aren’t too late, however.

DraftKings Sportsbook offers two separate odds boosts for WV sports betting fans for the first three rounds of the tournament. The first is a boost of 30% on the profit of a winning live wager for either of the first two rounds.

Bettors can use the boost on one live bet of up to $50 at DraftKings in each round. If the bet wins, the boost will up the value of the profit by 30%, up to $250. DraftKings WV Sportsbook also has a boost with the same terms especially for in-round wagers for Round 3.

At BetMGM WV Sportsbook, there are props on whether 13 different contenders will make the cut. The lines range from +320 on Justin Thomas missing the cut to -200 on Branden Grace making the cut. BetMGM also has a futures market on the tourney winner, with Bryson DeChambeau and Thomas leading the pack at +1400.

FanDuel Sportsbook offers a lot more props. That includes a bevy of 2- and 3-ball markets and odds on the scores for Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler on the ninth hole in the first round. Bettors who put down money on Fowler to bogey or worse on that hole would enjoy a +1800 payout if he falters there.

If golf betting isn’t what gets you into the swing of things, you can get your kicks with the return of the United Kingdom‘s top men’s club soccer league. The English Premier League resumed its season without fans on Wednesday.

EPL odds and promos at WV sportsbooks

BetMGM mixes up its EPL markets with props it calls Star Player. The markets rest upon the actions of a few of the EPL’s best in their first matches back since March.

For example, you can take advantage of a +900 line if Harry Kane scores a goal in both halves of Tottenham Hotspur‘s match against Manchester United.

Another possible attractive prop is on the West Ham United vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers match. If both teams net a goal and the final score is over 3.5 goals total, the bet would pay out +300.

DraftKings boosted its odds for Friday’s Tottenham vs. ManU match on a prop for Hotspur to net the first goal. The line on that wager is up to +265 from +240. The same book also has a futures market for which player will finish the season with the highest goal tally.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy currently sits in the top position in that market at +160. FanDuel might have the most attractive promotion for EPL bettors right now, however. It’s essentially a “tournament” for soccer bettors across all the states FanDuel accepts online wagers in.

WV sports betting customers earn points toward a share of a $20,000 prize pool for winning soccer bets. The promotion is ongoing and runs through the end of the month. When June ends, the top 100 in the points standings earn a bonus in site credit based on their placement.

Only bets of at least $10 are eligible. The point value of each wager corresponds to the odds. For example, wagers between -199 and -105 earn a solitary point. The scale tops out at odds of +1,906 or longer, which earn 25 points.

Any market offered in the soccer section is eligible, including futures. There are some new futures markets that might interest WV bettors.

BetMGM brings MLS is Back futures to WV

BetMGM is the first, and as of Thursday afternoon, only WV sports betting app to offer futures on the upcoming MLS is Back tournament. The top league for men’s club soccer in Canada and the United States is holding the tourney in Orlando, FL, starting on July 8.

BetMGM has futures for all six groups for the tournament along with a market for the winner of the entire event. Los Angeles Football Club has the shortest odds to win the whole tournament at +400. The Philadelphia Union sits +350 to win Group A.

The Columbus Crew sits in the middle of the pack for winning the event at +2000. Both DC United and FC Cincinnati are among the clubs with the longest shots to claim the trophy, at +5000 and +6600 respectively.

With events like the RBC Heritage ongoing, the weekend of June 18-20 looks to be another exciting one for bettors. BetMGM’s, DraftKing’s, and FanDuel’s specials for the weekend could make it a lucrative one for WV sports betting fans as well.
