The first part of the deal sees that anybody who signs up using the DraftKings promo code ahead of Thursday’s NBA playoff games gets $50 in bonus bets upfront. A 20% deposit match is also applied to the first deposit a user makes and can provide up to an extra $1,000 in bonuses.
The bet $5 to win $150 part of the deal requires that users select a winning pre-game moneyline—in other words, they must correctly pick a team that is going to win their matchup Thursday evening.
All earnings come in the form of bonus bets, although customers that win their pre-game moneyline bet will also receive cash prizes for the odds associated with the bet.
Bonus bets have no cash value and cannot be transferred or withdrawn but can be used to win cash with winning bets.
Thursday’s NBA playoff schedule consists of three matchups starting at 7:30, 10:00, and 10:30 p.m. ET.
The Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets kick the day off with their Game Three showdown in Brooklyn, New York. This is the first time in this series that the Nets will be at home, and frankly, they need all of the advantages they can get. They were dismantled in the series opener and capitulated in the second half of Game Two to forego any chances of stealing home court early.
What's concerning for the Nets is that James Harden has not been playing anywhere close to the standard he was, and Joel Embiid is averaging more than 10 fewer points per game in the series than he did in the regular season, yet they are down 0-2. If Brooklyn cannot get a single win with these factors working in their favor, it is hard to see how they will steal even one game in this series, whether they are at home or on the road.
The Nets did well to hold onto the sixth seed despite losing Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to separate trades a few months ago, but their inexperience and lack of top-drawer talent are showing like a bad rash against a superior team. Only Mikal Bridges, the breakout player of 2023, looks like he will be able to put up a consistent fight.
The second game is also the third in a series between the Sacramento Kings and the Golden State Warriors. This series has quickly become the country’s favorite to watch because of the plentiful energy that was present in Sacramento, the difficult and clutch shot-making, and the theater of the defending world champions taking on a club that had not made the postseason in 16 years.
The headline heading into Game Three is Draymond Green’s suspension he was handed for stomping on Domantas Sabonis after the two got tangled on a rebound. Sabonis initiated the contact by grabbing Green’s ankle, but Green used what was later called an excessive use force to free himself and left the Kings’ big man with a bruised sternum.
The Kings have been better with or without Green on the court thus far, but the Warriors were also one of the worst road teams in the entire league this season. The Kings now have to go on the road, where they were 24-17 in the regular season, to find their next win.
The final game of the day is between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Phoenix Suns. The Clippers pulled a road upset in Game One and were tied at halftime of Game Two but could only sit and watch as the Suns pulled ahead to a 12-point win, knotting the series at one apiece.
LA’s bench has been a positive in this series and will need to continue to assert itself. The Suns’ starters already look tired having been asked to play heavy minutes because of the distrust in the reserves, but to their credit, they were all excellent in Game Two.
Kawhi Leonard has been unbelievable for the Clippers thus far, although Phoenix was able to slow him down slightly once they started blitzing him. That also put pressure on Russell Westbrook to be a jump shooter, and despite an amazing box score, his comfort will always be closer to the rim. The Suns’ early defensive approach to Leonard could tell a lot about how Game Three unfolds.
