BetRivers is currently my favorite signup offer to recommend my followers - a 100% deposit match up to $250. I've had multiple friends/family who know nothing about sports redeem this offer and they've ALL made money. No risk at all - just use code PROMOGUY when signing up and 250MATCH when depositing! Pretty simple process, but feel free to DM on Twitter with questions.

February profit:



CBB Odds Boost (+3.4% EV)
Auburn ML and o143.5 boosted to +140! Risking $25 to win $35.

MY TAKE: This is small value, but in general I try to bet every boost that has a recommended bet size of 2 units or higher. The math works out to a 2.4 unit optimal bet size so I'm going with a $25 bet.

NBA Odds Boost (+~9% EV)
Jokic and Steph both to score 25+ points boosted to +280! Risking $25 to win $70.

MY TAKE: Both guys are projected to score 25, but the math looks a lot worse when you put them together. This is +EV, but I like to be conservative with player prop bets. Optimal bet size is 3.2 units but I'm only betting 2.5.

NHL Parlay Insurance
Bet $25 on a 4 leg, +400 minimum NHL parlay and get a refund in site credit if ONE leg loses!

MY TAKE: Awesome promo. Usually I like to look for strong value around -200 for each leg, but I'm feeling spicy tonight and threw in a Crosby goal. Final price ended up a lot higher than usualy - pick is on Twitter!

Olympics Flash Boost
USA Women's Hockey to beat Canada boosted to +220! Risking $47 to win $103.40.

MY TAKE: Gotta go with our USA ladies here and this boosts gives us a good reason to do so. Optimal bet size: 4.7 units.

NHL Odds Boost (+11.4% EV)
8+ goals in Vegas v. Colorado boosted to +225! Risking $50 to win $112.50.

MY TAKE: Fair odds here are around +195, giving this some serious value even though we're going to need a lot of goals. Optimal bet size: 5.2 units. Let's root for some goals!

Goal In First Ten minutes (GIFT)
Goal to be scored in first 10 minutes of Knights/Avs boosted to +100! Happily risking the max of $50 on this one.

MY TAKE: DK's original price of -185 actually looks legit here. Caesars has the same bet for -210 and when two books are in the same neighborhood, I consider that reliable (especially in this case). We need goals in this game anyway so let's double down!

Various other promos
Unfortunately, DK seems to be moving to a highly-targeted promo strategy. Check Twitter for my thoughts on a few of the ones I've seen personally.

Cover Cash Wednesdays
Bet $50+ on the SPREAD of BKN/NYK and get a $5 free bet per point your team covers by! Risking $50 on the Knicks -4.5.

MY TAKE: The spread usually indicates a coin flip, but that doesn't mean it's going to land exactly on the number. There is some serious value in the potential of this promo. The Knicks -4.5 is slightly better mathematically, so we're going with them.
Max free bet awarded: $75.
