DraftKings Offering No-Brainer Bet For NFL Wild Card Weekend

DraftKings Sportsbook is making sure every player walks away a winner this weekend when the NFL playoffs kick off.

For wild card games Saturday and Sunday, DraftKings is offering a no-brainer bet: double your money if any team scores a touchdown.

The promo is available to new and existing users. The max wager is $25.

Free money is a no-brainer, every time

This is not the first time DraftKings has offered a no-brainer bet.

In September, bettors had the opportunity to wager on a +101 point spread for the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in the season opener against Houston Texans.

Last season, the no-brainer bet was whether the Philadelphia Eagles would score a touchdown in Week 1.
