Be crowned the first-ever DraftKings Sports Betting National Champion


On behalf of the entire staff at DraftKings, we are happy to accept an invitation from Mason, Matt, and the rest of the TwoPlusTwo team to discuss the Sports Betting National Championship, held in Jersey City next weekend, January 11-13th. No need to wait for online sports betting to reach your state, the Sports Betting National Championships are open to all US residents / US SS# holders - come join us in New Jersey and get in on the action next weekend!

As you may have already seen, this event has quickly gained traction in the poker community. Even Phil Hellmuth will take his shot at becoming the first-ever Sports Betting National Champion. With only a week to go, we hope that everyone in the poker and sports betting communities recognizes the massive value opportunity for SBNC entrants, thanks to the very aggressive guarantee for this inaugural contest.

Contestants can buy-in directly to the Sports Betting National Championship for the price of $10,000. Half of this cost, $5,000, will be returned to the participant in the form of a bankroll for the event. At the end of the SBNC you will head home with your resulting bankroll, and any
leaderboard prizes you earned .

A seat in the Sports Betting National Championship guarantees your chance to win the top prize of $1,000,000. This prize money is allocated separate from any winnings from bets placed, ensuring that the top dog will walk away with more than the top prize.

Enter now for a chance to qualify for the premier live sports betting event. The winning qualifier will enjoy a free three-night hotel stay, $1,000 in travel expenses, and a $5,000 bankroll for the event!

Re: DRAFTINGS SPORTS BETTING NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP January 11-13th

Do we have to bet into your high vig or will it be lowered for the weekend? The only time I was there you had 30 cent lines on spreads and ridiculous holds on MLB moneylines.

Our goal is to redefine the sweat experience and play the role as “the game within the game”. There’s more to this story than simply looking at the money lines, totals, and spread. We offer customizable parlay options, live in-game wagers and props - this is the future of sportsbetting, we create an experience for fans who want a little skin in the game for every point, every down, every quarter. These are things you cannot easily do in an old-school book, we are part of the generation that is blazing a new path that will redefine how fans engage with sports.

We work extremely hard to provide fair pricing for our primary markets such as NBA and NFL. The lines we offer from our Sportsbook app is viewable from anywhere within the USA, we are totally transparent, why don't you check out the DraftKings Sportsbook app yourself to see that our numbers for the major markets are in fact competitive? We are constantly looking at price and adjusting with the market. A bigger market means a more competitive market, and our prices will reflect that as the market continues to evolve.

If you visit the Sports Betting National Championships landing page at https://www.draftkings.com/sports-be...l-championship to read the rules of play, you will find that our betting limits will remain the same for all players at all points of the SBNC tournament. In addition, you have our assurance that the lines for the Sports Betting National Championship will be the same as the lines offered to the public over the course of the weekend. This assures an even playing field for all entrants in the tournament.

Since you have not been to our newly opened DraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts in Atlantic City yet, you probably don't know how much fun the action can be. This is what the conclusion of the Bears - Eagles game last night looked like from our Resorts location in New Jersey:

If you think this is what excitement looks like, wait until you see the audience at our Sports Betting National Championship this weekend. You won't want to miss it.

Re: DRAFTINGS SPORTS BETTING NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP January 11-13th

Any plans for the weekend? We are going to be at the Sports Betting National Championships - crowning the winner with over $1,000,000 in prizes. With only four days to go, we hope that everyone in the sports betting community recognizes the massive value opportunity for SBNC entrants, thanks to the very aggressive guarantee for this inaugural contest.

As you all know, Phil Hellmuth is taking his shot to become the national champion. Hellmuth has enjoyed much success in poker tournaments, do you think his success will translate to a sportsbook tournament?

Is there a guaranteed minimum payout to the winner? If not, what is the chance that the winner gets $1 million?

We have posted a 2.5 Million Dollar Guaranteefor the event, with $1,000,000 guaranteed up top for 1st place.

Since this is the first time this contest format has been tried, and we could not predict the total number of attendees, we chose to use a very aggressive guarantee. At this stage, the "O" word is likely - a huge benefit for the players.

Nothing says "excitement" like watching the game with some drunk ***** female "sports fan" squawking in my ear, knowing the whole time I've got to sweat getting shot on the way to my car if my bet does indeed win.

Legal sportsbooks in the US were a mistake.

F draftkings . You don’t care about your customers and only cater to the 1%s who also happen to be on your payroll.

And your site has had numerous outages making people not able to see ownership numbers , edit lineups and watch live scoring and you don’t refund people

To be fair to DK, after I made my post they adjusted their line so the juice is no longer 29c. It's 35c now while everyone else still has 20c.

Re: DRAFTINGS SPORTS BETTING NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP January 11-13th

How can a book with a 30+ cent plus spread be limiting punters on major markets at all don't you have competent traders, or even incompetent traders with access to the Pinnacle/Matchbook/Betfair lines to check what the price 'should be' and just make it the same with higher vig? I get why a book offering -105 lines might not welcome sharp action if you don't have a good trading team but at your vig that's just embarrassing and you're not a real sportsbook at that point, you're just bum hunting incompetent people.

DraftKings Sports Betting National Championship - LIVE Leaderboard: https://sportsbook.draftkings.com/sbnc/leaderboard

We have reached reached day 3 of the DraftKings Sports Betting National Championship. It has been a fascinating tournament, with numerous players still in the running to win the grand prize of 1 million + the bankroll remaining in the participant's account.

The remaining participants who did not bust out before day 3 can ONLY bet on the two NFL games on Sunday and they must wager at least $2,000 on these games to qualify for the $2.5 million SBNC prize pool (all qualifying entrants also had to bet at least $1,000 on Friday/Saturday). All participants in the tournament are subject to the same betting limits across eligible events, and their bets will all be closed with their accounts locked once the Eagles/Saints kicks off this afternoon - and that's when the real sweat begins for all the money.

As of the start of the day, 128 players can currently meet the $2,000 bankroll requirement. Anything can happen between now and the start of the Eagles/Saints game - maybe one of them can run it up to meet the minimum $2K requirement for Sunday's final wager? Wouldn't it be amazing to see a final $2K parlay hit it big for all the money? That's what makes the SBNC Leaderboard so exciting to sweat, DraftKings provides full transparency so you can see all of the sports bets placed, allowing the fans at home to see for themselves how the winners ran up their tournament bankrolls.

"gucho-SBNC" sat firmly atop the leaderboard for much of yesterday, but he was forced to deviate from his all-Soccer strategy that propelled him to the top of the leaderboard for most of day 2. He put got his entire bankroll on the line this morning leaning heavily on the Chargers, with $44,482.17 wagered. Will his reliance on the Chargers be his downfall or will can he still book a win?

One of our favorite stories of day two was "deliverboy-SBNC" who hit a seven-pick parlay on his $446.68 bet that paid a whopping $41,430.24! His wild parlay hit at the very end of day two, propelling him from the bottom of the leaderboard to top at sixth place! So sick!

Here is deliverboy's big parlay on day 2:
  1. Under Total Points 235.5 New Orleans Pelicans @ Minnesota Timberwolves
  2. Vanderbilt Point Spread 13 Vanderbilt Commodores @ Kentucky Wildcats
  3. Under Total Points 233.5 Charlotte Hornets @ Sacramento Kings
  4. CHI Bulls Point Spread 12 Chicago Bulls @ Utah Jazz
  5. OKC Thunder Point Spread -6.5 San Antonio Spurs @ Oklahoma City Thunder
  6. UC Irvine Point Spread -3 UC Irvine Anteaters @ Cal State Fullerton Titans
  7. Over Total Points 151.5 Gonzaga Bulldogs @ San Francisco Dons

Who do you think will win? Which contestant is using the smartest betting strategy? Want a recap of all the action? Check out the Sports Betting National Championship blogs from our friends at SharpSide and TheLines:
