We have frequently seen DraftKings promoting "Bet $1 & Win $100" promos in the past. The sportsbook will raise the stakes this time around and offer a somewhat different price boost.
Anyone who creates a new account at DraftKings sportsbook from now until the start of the main event fight at UFC 261 (Saturday, April 24th, 2021) will be able to claim the “Bet $5 & Win $130” offer. By wagering only $5, you get a chance to win $130. That’s a massive price boost of +2600 or 26/1.
The main event is the UFC Welterweight Championship bout between Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal. To claim the offer, you only need to place a straight moneyline wager on either of the two fighters to win the match. If you get your pick right, you will win $130.
You have the option to choose between the two fighters, but the value is clearly with Kamaru Usman who enters the bout as a heavy favorite.
According to the regular odds, the Nigerian Nightmare is -400 to beat Jorge Masvidal for the second time. The two fighters previously run across each other almost one year ago at UFC 251 when Usman celebrated a victory on the unanimous decision.
