ALCS & NLCS Betting Preview
Four teams remain after the Division Series, and we have two great Championship Series up next. The American League pennant will be won by either the Boston Red Sox, who came through the Wild Card game, or the AL West winning Houston Astros. The National League will be win by either the Los Angeles Dodgers, who came through the Wild Card, or the NL East winning Atlanta Braves. Boston vs Houston gets started Friday, October 15, 2021, and the NLCS gets going on Saturday.
If you want to get involved in the action, over the weekend, two great sportsbooks are offering two great promos for new users.
DraftKings Sportsbook Bet $1 Win $100
For new users who deposit at least $5 into their account will be able to opt into the bet $1 win $100 on any MLB game this weekend. If you put your $1 on the Houston Astros money line -140, if either Boston or Houston gets a hit you win $100. You could hit your bet by the end of the first inning with this promo! I like Houston to win the pennant and am backing them in game one.
Caesars Sportsbook Risk Free $5,000 Bet
The best promo in the game is at Caesars Sportsbook where they offer a risk-free first bet up to $5,000. That’s right, if you make an initial deposit, your first bet is risk-free! Most sportsbooks don’t offer more than $1,000 risk-free, so this offer is far and away the best one on the market.
This weekend I would take my $5,000 risk-free bet and wager it on Los Angeles -135 in game one of the NLCS. The pitching matchup is still to be determined, but I don’t expect the Braves to shut down the bats of the Dodgers like they did against Milwaukee is the Divisional Series. I felt like Los Angeles was going to win the World Series, again, all season long and now that they got past the Giants I feel even better about that.
