The Stanley Cup Final is here, and bettors in the Mountain State can take advantage in plenty of ways.
Besides just betting on the NHL in WV, residents can utilize a variety of promotions and odds boosts around the series. Some WV sportsbooks even provide free games and pools to participate in as well.
The Lightning grabbed the opening game by a score of 5-1, but it was much closer than that.
Montreal cut Tampa’s lead to just one late in the second period; however, the Lightning turned it on in the final frame.
They scored three goals, including two from Nikita Kucherov, to take the opener and lead in the series.
Now the Canadiens must rebound to avoid heading back to Canada in a two-game hole. They only recorded 19 shots on goal in Game 1, so look for them to try to get more pucks at the net.
With the second tilt on Wednesday night, let’s break down the different promos and odds boosts available at WV online sportsbooks.
FanDuel Sportsbook Stanley Cup Promos
FanDuel WV has hockey fans covered. The online sportsbook offers a deal for bettors that can turn into a sizable bonus.
With its NHL Correct Score Bonus, bettors who wager on the 60-minute correct score market will receive a $3 bonus for every goal scored in the game.
Your qualifying bet must be at least $25 and placed as a straight wager prior to the start of the contest. You’ll get $3 in site credit back for every goal scored by both teams, up to $50.
So if you used this deal in the first game, you’d receive $18 in credit, making your initial bet just $7. Of course, you can also collect winnings from choosing the right score in the game.
At the moment, the operator shows the Lightning winning 4-1 as the correct score with the best odds. It’s offered at +1200.
FanDuel allows bettors to utilize this promotion once per every Stanley Cup Final matchup.
Customers on the sportsbook can also take advantage of its odds boost for Game 2. It’s giving odds of +600 for Tampa’s Kucherov or Brayden Point to score the first goal of the game.
William Hill NHL Promotions
Residents can also hop on William Hill WV and use its Stanley Cup promo.
Through its 3rd Time’s The Charm, customers can earn a free bet if their pick scores at least three goals.
If you bet a minimum of $50 on Game 2 with a straight moneyline wager made before the game, you’ll get a $50 free bet if your team scores three or more times.
The best part about this deal is that your selection doesn’t even need to win. As long as it’s a high-scoring affair with your side getting three goals, your initial bet is basically risk-free.
William Hill users will see their account credited within five business days of the promotion period.
The online sportsbook features lots of boosts for this evening’s tilt too.
Bettors can put some action down on Kucherov posting over 1.5 points at +200, along with the Lightning winning by shutting out the Canadiens at +700.
If Steven Stamkos and Nick Suzuki both score a goal, William Hill will pay out odds of +1200, while a Montreal 2-1 victory is available at +2500.
The maximum wager for all of these boosts is set at $100.
BetMGM WV Stanley Cup Deals
BetMGM WV Sportsbook is another online sports betting option with ways to cash in during the NHL postseason. It showcases two different promotions for hockey fans.
The first is similar to another promo in the state where you can get money back just for the teams scoring goals.
With BetMGM, you’ll receive a $5 free bet for every goal scored in the game by either team. When you place a bet of $50 on the Stanley Cup tilt, the online sportsbook will give you $5 for every tally.
This offer is available once per game while the series continues.
BetMGM’s other promo provides insurance if the game goes into overtime. If you happen to lose your moneyline bet on either team in an extra period, then you’ll get refunded up to $20.
This deal can also be used for every game. Bettors will receive their entire wager back in the form of a free bet, up to $20.
DraftKings Sportsbook Stanley Cup Boosts
Despite not having any promos up for Game 2, DraftKings WV Sportsbook does provide some odds boosts.
It boosted the odds for either team to win the contest by just one goal to +160. This market does include if the game goes into overtime.
Since Montreal is looking to bounce back in the series, this could be a profitable boost for a tight battle. It also helps that either side can win by one.
A larger boost will reward Montreal backers. DraftKings lists odds of +450 for Brendan Gallagher to record a point and for the Canadiens to win the game.
The winger has five points in the playoffs thus far, with two goals and three assists.
