After the appetizer of Week 0, the grand spectacle of Week 1 College Football graces our eyes from Wednesday through Labor Day this weekend.

Highlighted by the massive neutral site games as Clemson faces Georgia in Charlotte and Alabama plays Miami in Atlanta, 54 other games are available to bettors on the college football odds board.

With those two games as the headliners, there’s no better time to get registered with a sportsbook in your state and have a little sweat on the action. To ring in a new season, many of the books are offering intriguing promotions to new users, which you can see in the table below.

Best Week 1 College Football Betting Promos

DraftKings Week 1 College Football Promos

The folks over at DraftKings Sportsbooks are going big in Week 1, with multiple promos to wet the appetite for customers. If you’re a new bettor, once you sign up and bet just $1 on ANY college football game this weekend, you will instantly be credited with $200 in free bet credit.

All you’ll need to do is register, deposit at least $5 in to your account, place the $1 bet on ANY game – and $200 in free bet credit will be added to your bankroll.

Also on tap at DraftKings is their famous “Hammer the Over” promotion, this week being placed on the mammoth matchup of #3 Clemson vs #5 Georgia. In that one, the total for the game drops by a half-point every time 2,500 customers opt in to “hammer” the over.

As of Thursday afternoon, it was already down to a miniscule 11.5-points – from the listed total which is 51.5. It’s a no-brainer of a bet to make and is available to both new and existing DK customers. To claim, you must place a bet on special “Georgia Bulldogs vs Clemson Tigers on 9/4 to cover Hammer the Over Points Total Promo” market which is boosted to +100.

Place this as a single bet with a max of $25 and voila! You’re helping your fellow bettors and hammering the over.

FanDuel Sportsbook College Football Week 1 Promos

The biggest promo at FanDuel for Week 1 also surrounds the game between the Tigers and Bulldogs at 7:30pm on ABC Saturday night. FanDuel Sportsbook is offering promotional odds of 30-1 on both Clemson or Georgia to win the game.

With Clemson listed as -162 favorites, and Georgia just +132 dogs at FanDuel, the 30-1 offer is supremely attractive to bettors. All you have to do is place a $5 bet on the the team you think wins the showdown in Charlotte, and you will win $150.

PointsBet Week 1 College Football Promos

PointsBet is offering a whopping six specific promotions, including SEC and Big Ten specific promotions, but we’ll focus on the two that can be used on teams across the country here.

The first one is available to all new customers. All bettors need to do is sign-up at PointsBet, make a first-time deposit, and then bet $10 on any college football game and win $125 in free bet credits if a point is scored in the game. Seems like a no-brainer right?

The second promotion being offered for the whole slate is of a similar vein. Sign-up at PointsBet, make a first-time deposit and bet $25 on any game and win $250 in free bet credits if the team you bet on wins. This one has a little bit more risk than the first promotion, but still unbeatable value considering some of the Week 1 spreads.
