DraftKings Sportsbook College Basketball Promo

Claiming this huge DraftKings Sportsbook college basketball odds boost in an easy process.

First, click on the DraftKings Sportsbook banner above (or the one at the bottom of the page). Complete the registration forms and then make a minimum deposit of $5.

Once you have money to wager in your DraftKings Sportsbook account, place your first wager on any college basketball moneyline. This qualifying wager must be at least $5.

If the team you bet on wins the game straight-up, you will land $200 in free bets (plus the return from your winning wager).


The free bets are paid out as eight $25 free bets. When you have the free bets in your account, be sure to use them within seven days, otherwise they will be voided by the sportsbook.

Who Can Claim the DraftKings Sportsbook Bonus?

This college basketball promo is available to all new DraftKings Sportsbook customers making a first-time deposit.

It’s available in the following states: arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Importantly, in order to qualify, the qualifying wager (i.e. the $5 moneyline bet) must be made before tip-off of the relevant game. In-game wagers will not count.

This offer closes on April 4, 2022, the date of the national championship game.

Best Ways to Use the DraftKings Sportsbook College Basketball Bonus

It’s not every day that you get to apply 40-1 odds to any team on the board. Obviously, you will want to bet on a BIG favorite.

The table below shows some of the biggest favorites on the schedule over the 24 hours.

Team Odds
Chicago State +600
Utah Valley -900
Team Moneyline
UT Rio Grande Valley +220
Cal Baptist -275
Team Moneyline
Cal Poly +180
UC Davis -220
Team Moneyline
Clemson +180
NC State -220

You might not know a lot about Chicago State or Utah Valley, but that’s not important for present purposes. All you need to know is that Utah Valley is pretty good and Chicago State is, comparatively, not. Rated 334th out of 358 DI teams by KenPom, the Chicago State Cougars are 7-24 on the year and lost their previous matchup with Utah Valley by 14 points (at home).

Is Utah Valley a “lock” to win? No, there’s no such thing in this business. But that’s where I would be putting my money if I was claiming this DraftKings Sportsbook bonus today.
