  • DraftKings Sportsbook has a special promotion for the 2021 MLB postseason
  • New customers who wager a single dollar on a playoff game will win a $100 bonus if the team they backed records a single hit
  • See below for further details plus the terms and conditions

The 2021 Major League Baseball playoffs start on Tuesday with the American League Wild Card game between arch-rivals New York and Boston. To mark the start of another tense, high-stakes postseason, DraftKings is giving new users a unique, almost-can’t-miss opportunity to turn $1 into $100.

Anyone who registers at the site, makes a minimum $5 deposit, and then wagers $1 on any team’s moneyline for a playoff game will get a $100 bonus if the team they backed gets at least one hit in that game.

See below for more information and the T&Cs.

How to (Not) Use This Promo Offer

The history of no-hitters in the postseason is sparse. Roy Halladay pitched a no-no in the 2010 NLDS against the Cincinnati Reds (his first-ever playoff start). And, of course, Don Larsen pitched a perfect game in the 1956 World Series.

That’s it. In over 1,500 postseason games, there have been two no-hitters (about 0.13% probability, historically).

If you want to exercise an abundance of caution with this promotional offer, though, avoid these starting pitchers when utilizing this promo.

Top-Ten Pitchers to Avoid

Pitcher Team 2021 ERA 2021 WHIP Playoff ERA No-Hitters Combined No-Hitters
Max Scherzer Dodgers 2.46 0.86 3.38 2 0
Corbin Burnes Brewers 2.43 0.94 2.00 0 1 (first 8.0 innings)
Walker Buehler Dodgers 2.47 0.97 2.35 0 1 (first 6.0 innings)
Gerrit Cole Yankees 3.23 1.06 2.68 0 0
Brandon Woodruff Brewers 2.56 0.97 2.57 0 0
Kevin Gausman Giants 2.81 1.04 2.70 0 0
Lance McCullers Jr Astros 3.16 1.22 3.28 0 0
Lance Lynn White Sox 2.69 1.07 4.80 0 0
Carlos Rodon White Sox 2.37 0.96 INF (2 ER, 0 outs) 1 0
Lucas Giolito White Sox 3.53 1.10 1.29 1 0

If I was using this in the Wild Card round, I would bet on either the LA Dodgers, who will face the Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright, or the New York Yankees, who will face the Red Sox’ Nathan Eovaldi.

I would not bet on the St Louis, who have to go up against LA’s Max Scherzer, or Boston, who will contend with New York’s Gerrit Cole.
