CT & NJ Sports Betting
Connecticut and New Jersey users have plenty of surrounding NFL teams to watch, even if none are technically repping their state, and that is probably why New Jersey is the biggest market for online sports wagering. As we head into week eight, new users from those states can head over to SugarHouse Sportsbook and take advantage of their 100% first deposit match bonus.
SugarHouse Sportsbook – 100% Match Bonus
SugarHouse is offering new users a 100% first deposit match bonus up to $250. That’s right, you can turn your $250 into $500 without even placing a wager. If you want to take advantage of this in week eight, look at the Philadelphia Eagles game when they visit the Detroit Lions. South Jersey is Eagles country, and this may be one of the few games remaining where they can bet on their team to win.
Philadelphia is sitting at 2-5 overall and have now lost five of their last six games, putting Eagles fans into unrest. The Eagles have lost their last two games to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Las Vegas Raiders and slow starts are killing this team. Philadelphia is averaging 22.74 points per game and 361.9 yards per game. The defense is allowing 26.4 points and 371.0 yards.
The Detroit Lions are the last winless team in the NFL, but they have been close to getting their first win a few times, not that it’s any consolation. Detroit has lost three games by one score and four games by less than 10 points. The Detroit offense is averaging just 18.3 points per game and 354.0 yards per game. Defensively, the Lions are allowing 28.6 points and 399.6 yards.
Connecticut and New Jersey users should take advantage of this SugarHouse 100% match and place their free $250 on Philadelphia -3.5. I think Detroit gave it all they had last week and this could be a huge letdown game.
