The Major League Baseball season is underway, and those in the Mountain State can put some action down in a variety of ways. West Virginia sportsbooks are providing several promotions around the new season for bettors to take advantage of.
Often, these deals are available for just a couple of days, so players should continue to check out the sportsbooks’ promotions pages.
The MLB season is back to its full 162-game schedule this year, so there is plenty of time to wager on your favorite teams. That being said, the beginning of the season is always the most exciting.
This is in part because each team is still relevant and has the opportunity to put together a great year.
Let’s break down the MLB promos offered right now at WV online sports betting apps.
MLB promos for April 2021
DraftKings Sportsbook MLB promotions
DraftKings WV lists MLB promos all the time, and they’re usually in the form of a profit boost.
While these boosts are typically around 25%, right now, the online sportsbook has a special to celebrate Jackie Robinson Day. The league celebrates the event every April 15 to honor Robinson’s MLB debut.
Instead of just 25%, DraftKings’ MLB Daily Profit Boost gives customers a 42% jump. Robinson wore number 42, and every player in the league wears the retired digits on Jackie Robinson Day to commemorate his legacy.
This offer is available for any MLB game taking place on the 15th. After opting in, you’ll be given a profit boost that can only be utilized one time. You must select the boost on your bet slip prior to placing your wager.
If you win your bet, you’ll see your winnings enhanced by 42%. The boost is simply applied to the winnings, not the money you put down for the original bet.
DraftKings sets the maximum wager for this promo at $50, while your additional winnings are capped at $100.
Your qualifying bet can include live markets or come in the form of a parlay with only MLB selections.
FanDuel Sportsbook MLB promos
The Mountain State’s FanDuel Sportsbook WV also is offering MLB promos for the month of April.
Through its Same Game Parlay Insurance, FanDuel customers can get a refund on their MLB parlay even if it loses.
Once you opt in, you’re eligible to receive a refund on your four-leg MLB parlay if you hit on three of your choices. If only one leg loses, FanDuel will grant you a refund for your entire bet, up to $25.
The insurance money comes in the form of site credit.
Each individual pick in your parlay must have odds of -200 or greater. The overall final price of the parlay needs to be +400 or better as well.
Of course, the entire parlay must consist of markets from the same baseball game.
This promotion runs through Tuesday, April 20. Bettors can cash in on this deal once per day while it’s still up.
William Hill Sportsbook MLB promotions
William Hill WV has bettors in the state covered with MLB deals too.
With its Grand Slam promo, customers can earn a $50 free bet when they wager on four MLB games.
This deal is in place for baseball contests taking place on Friday, April 16.
By placing four separate pregame moneyline bets of at least $50 on games that day, you’ll receive the $50 bonus. William Hill will award the credit to your account within five business days.
Currently, the MLB schedule lists 15 games for Friday. So barring any bad weather, bettors have lots of options to choose from to pick their four games. All 30 MLB franchises will be taking the field.
The action gets started with one afternoon game between the Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs before the night slate.
It should be noted that betting on both sides of a moneyline for a specific game for this promo is prohibited. The online sportsbook may disqualify you from the deal if you do so.
