Dallas Cowboys fans don't need me to tell them how great a day of football Thanksgiving tends to be. There's just something special about knowing you've got a full day to lounge around watching football and you still have a whole weekend ahead of you. Oh, and I guess celebrating a holiday with your loved ones can be nice too.
But one way to make Thanksgiving football that much more exciting is to bet on it, especially when your Cowboys are big favorites.
To make betting that much easier, sportsbooks are offering some serious bonuses this year, and we've rounded up exclusive links to four of the best offers in the industry, which all cost $10 or less to unlock but each offer at least $150 in bonuses.
Best NFL Betting Promos for Thanksgiving Day
There are four promos that bettors should really focus on for the Thanksgiving Day NFL slate, as simply betting a combined $25 can earn you $650 in bonuses (with $500 of that guaranteed). Here's a quick look at the list:
- BetMGM: Bet $10, Get $200 guaranteed
- DraftKings Sportsbook: Bet $5, Get $150 guaranteed
- FanDuel Sportsbook: Bet $5 on a moneyline, Get $150 if your team wins
- Bet365: Bet $5, Get $150 guaranteed (limited states)
These offers all differ very slightly, so let me give you a quick rundown of what you need to know about each of them too.
BetMGM is offering a classic "bet and get" promotion, meaning you just need to place your first bet of $10 to automatically unlock a guaranteed $200 bonus. It doesn't matter if your bet wins or loses, so don't be afraid to get creative with your choice.
This offer really stands out because of the $200 bonus number, beating out what the other top players in the industry are willing to offer.
DraftKings is also offering a guaranteed bet and get promo. Theirs isn't quite as big as BetMGM's, but a guaranteed $150 bonus is nothing to sneeze at. The $5 wager required is also smaller than BetMGM's, but it's important to note that you have to deposit $10 to unlock the offer anyway.
FanDuel's promo is the most unique of the bunch, and this one is not guaranteed. Your $5 bet must be on a moneyline, and your team must win to unlock your bonus. In that situation you get the usual cash winnings plus an additional $150 bonus.
That makes the Cowboys a perfect team to back, since they're such heavy favorites over the Commanders on Thursday. That gives you one of the best shots of unlocking your $150 of any game.
Bet365, like DraftKings, is offering "bet $5, get $150 guaranteed." And like DraftKings, you must deposit $10 to unlock the promo.
So why do they rank below DraftKings? Well Bet365 is available in far fewer states so far. They're one of the fastest-growing sportsbooks in America, but the list of states they operate in is still quite limited: New Jersey, Colorado, Virginia, Ohio, Iowa and Louisiana.
So there you have it. Four promos, $40 deposited, $25 wagered and either $500 or $650 in bonuses, depending on whether that moneyline bet on FanDuel wins or not.
