Tennessee is launching sports betting in the state on November 1, and DraftKings is offering anyone a $50 free bet when they sign-up with the sportsbook when you register before the big day! When you sign-up with DraftKings from now until October 31, they will offer you a $50 free bet when the official launch in the state.
DraftKings Tennessee Promotion
DraftKings is giving away a $50 free bet to anyone in Tennessee if they create a sports betting account before November 1. All you have to do is go to DraftKings.com or download the DraftKings Sportsbook mobile app to sign-up. If you are over 21 years old and creating a DraftKings account in the state of Tennesse, you are eligible for the promotion.
There is no minimum deposit or loophole. All you have to do is sign-up and be in Tennessee. It’s that easy! The offer is for new and existing users. If you are already a DraftKings member, you will see a $50 free play in your account on the day they launch.
The offer is valid for seven days after the launch date. DraftKings is expecting to launch on November 1, so users will have seven days to place their $50 free bet. If you sign-up and do not see your free bet available in your account, don’t sweat it. The $50 free bet will pop up on the day of the launch, so you do not have to worry.
Tennessee Sports Betting Launch
Tennessee expects to launch sports betting on November 1, but they could have a pre-launch a few days prior. Last Friday, the Tennessee Education Lottery Committee had a special meeting regarding the launch of sports betting.
With November 1 being on an NFL Sunday, the busiest day of the week for sportsbooks, they discuss the possibility of doing a pre-launch where sportsbooks will be allowed to take bets for a few hours a day to make sure there are no hiccups on the big day.
BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel will be ready to go on day one. Tennessee Action 24/7 is still waiting for approval from TEL to launch sports betting. Their operator, Amelco, is still going through the approval process and might be behind the other three sportsbooks.
Regardless, Tennesseans will be able to start betting on the first day, and possibly even sooner. This gives anyone living in the Volunteer State the chance to take advantage of the $50 free bet early!
NFL Betting Pick
You want to be able to put that $50 to good use on November 1, and there are a few options on the board. The Titans are playing the Cincinnati Bengals on the first official day of sports betting in the state. As of writing this, the Titans are 2.5-point favorites that day.
The Bengals looked improved under Joe Burrow but are still struggling to find their footing in 2020. The Titans have a chance to be 6-0 heading into that game after knocking off the Pittsburgh Steelers at home.
This could be an excellent spot to take the Titans if they are a road favorite under a field-goal. As exciting as it has been to watch Joe Burrow at quarterback, the Titans offense led by Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry has been much better.
Tennessee is one of the best teams in the AFC this season, and they will want to prove it on Sunday when everyone in Tennessee will be betting the Titans.
