West Virginia Online Sportsbooks Feature Lots Of March Madness Promotions Ahead Of 2021 NCAA Tournament

Written By Chris Imperiale on March 17, 2021 - Last Updated on March 16, 2023

It is a great time of the year for sports bettors. March Madness is just around the corner, and every West Virginia online sports betting app is stocked with new promos.

Along with the Super Bowl, betting on the NCAA Tournament is one of the most popular sporting events each year. Since college basketball fans missed out on the Big Dance last season, the 2021 event should see even more action.

Of course, WV sportsbooks are ready to go with an abundance of markets to bet on. You’re able to wager on team futures and individual games, as well as other things like tournament props.

Residents in the Mountain State can take WVU in its quest to reach the Final Four. Its odds vary at sportsbooks, but you’re able to basically bet WVU to qualify for any round of your choosing.

Besides normal bets, there are plenty of deals available at each WV online sportsbook, too.

DraftKings March Madness promos

DraftKings Sportsbook WV always offers promotions for its customers throughout the year. For this season’s tournament, it has a few ways to cash in.

With March Mania 75+ Point Insurance, the online sportsbook will refund your bet even if your team loses. After you opt in, you’re eligible to receive a free bet up to $50 when your team doesn’t win but does score at least 75 points.

This offer is available for any college basketball game taking place in both of the first two rounds of the tournament. The opening round begins on Friday, March 19, and round two finishes up on Monday, March 22.

One of the benefits of this promo is that you can use it multiple times. Each customer can qualify once for every game during this first March Madness weekend.

This deal is only for pregame moneyline wagers.

DraftKings also has a deal in place specifically for the first round. Its March Mania Parlay Boost provides a 20% increase in your winnings for any four-leg NCAA Tournament parlay.

Once you opt in, you get a single-use boost you can apply to any of the games taking place on Friday or Saturday.

Parlays must include at least four selections, which all have odds of -500 or greater. The 20% boost is just for the winnings from your bet, not the money you initially put down.

There is a max bet of $50 for this promotion, and your potential winnings are capped at $250. This deal does allow you to feature live bets in your parlay.

FanDuel NCAA Tournament promos

FanDuel WV also has bettors in the Mountain State covered with some great offers.

The Spread The Love promo is worth mentioning first because the online sportsbook is handing out free money. Every so often, FanDuel implements this deal, where the spread of the game is moved for every 2,500 fans who bet on the game.

FanDuel continues to move the line one point with every 2,500 wagers the promo receives, even after it’s a foregone conclusion. This latest promo is based around one of the First Four play-in games taking place on Thursday.

Initially, Michigan State was laying -2 in the spread in its matchup with UCLA. However, now, with the promotion, you can bet on the Spartans receiving +95.5 points. That number is not a misprint.

In fact, by the time this is published, the spread will probably move another few points.

Bettors simply need to wager on the updated spread they’ll find on the sportsbook’s main page. The max wager for this deal is $50, accompanied by odds of -110. This means that your bet will win over $45.

While most promos are helpful, there’s nothing better than a deal where the favorite in a basketball game is getting around +100 points.

If you take advantage of this promo on Thursday night, you’ll have some extra funds to bet more.

With FanDuel’s Tournament Parlay Insurance, you can earn a refund even for losing your bet. By placing a three-leg parlay on college basketball games, you’re eligible to receive $25 in site credit if you hit on two of your choices.

This is available for any NCAA Tournament games taking place through March 30.

Each individual selection in the parlay must include odds of -200 or better, while the final odds of the parlay have to be at least +350.

The maximum you can get back is $25, but you can utilize this offer each day there are games.

Be sure to also check out other FanDuel promotions for the tournament, including the March Million and March To The Top Leaderboard.

BetMGM March Madness promos

College basketball enthusiasts can find additional March Madness promos at BetMGM Sportsbook WV.

The online sportsbook has several deals at the moment, including Buzzer Beater Insurance.

With this promotion, you can relieve some of the stress that normally comes with betting on the NCAA Tournament. BetMGM will give you a refund of up to $20 if your pregame moneyline wager loses in the final seconds.

The best part of this is that the shot doesn’t necessarily need to be a “buzzer beater.” The online sportsbook specifies that if your team loses its lead with fewer than five seconds remaining, you are eligible for the money back.

This promo can also be claimed once per day through April 5.

Another way to win with BetMGM is with its College Basketball Parlay Boost Token. Customers will get this 10% boost to use on any college basketball parlay involving at least three legs.

Bettors will receive the token when they log in and can use it once per day through March 18.

While it doesn’t appear that the parlay has any odds restrictions, the most you’re able to wager with the token is $100.

William Hill NCAA basketball promos

William Hill Sportsbook WV is in the mix with promos for March Madness as well.

The online sportsbook showcases several different deals for upcoming college basketball games.

The most notable might be the Risk-Free Parlay available for the first round of the Big Dance. If you wager at least $10 on a four-leg college basketball parlay, William Hill will give you your money back up to $10.

The individual selections can feature any odds, as long as the final price of the parlay is at least +300.

Your free bet needs to be used within a week.

William Hill also has a deal in place meant to reward those risky bettors who are anticipating some upsets this weekend. By betting an underdog of at least +200 with a straight moneyline bet for the duration of the game, you’ll get a bonus if you win.

Customers will earn a free bet equal to their net winnings from their wager, up to $100.

The Cinderella Double Bonus is offered for all first-round contests, playing on Friday and Saturday this week.

The online sportsbook also has a quality promo based around NCAA Tournament futures. When you bet at least $10 on the outright winner of the Big Dance, William Hill will give you money back just for your team making the Final Four.

If your selection can make it to the national semis, you’ll earn a free bet worth 50% of your original wager, up to $50. Your qualifying future needs to be placed prior to the tournament starting on Friday.

Betly March Madness promos

Betly Sportsbook WV also has something posted for tournament time.

On Wednesday, it introduced its $10K Money Madness promotion. This college basketball giveaway enters customers into a pool with $10,000 worth of prizes for the tournament.

By placing bets of at least $25 on markets with odds of -200 or better, you’ll earn at least one entry depending on the round.

Each $25 bet in round one will get you one entry. Every second-round bet earns two entries, while each third-round bet gets three and so on.

Naturally, the more entries you receive, the better the chances of winning a portion of the prize pool.

Betly will select random winners on April 6. In total, 35 eligible bettors will take home some of the money. The payouts are based on the following and come in the form of a free bet:

  • First: $3,000
  • Second: $2,000
  • Third: $1,000
  • Fourth: $500
  • Fifth: $350
  • Sixth: $250
  • Seventh–35th: $100
