NFL Sportsbook Bonuses for Opening Weekend
Players who are looking for an additional sportsbook account to find value for the first NFL Sunday are encouraged to weigh the offers posted in the betting sites bonuses directory.
Offers are categorized and sorted first by True Bonus Value — a formula SBR uses to compare the strength of sportsbook bonus offers.
Put simply, the higher the true bonus value, the better the sportsbook bonus. For cash bonuses, the formula is simple: Divide the percentage of the bonus by the amount of the play-through requirement. For example, a 100% cash bonus with a 10X rollover carries a true bonus value of 10%. Free plays are worth roughly half the value of a cash bonus, so the formula is the same except bonuses are cut in half before dividing by rollover.
Other categories listed on the betting sites bonuses directory include the maximum amount of the bonus. A $1,000 max bonus might be more appealing to a player seeking a new account bonus than a book that caps you at $25 with otherwise more favorable bonus terms. The strength of each bonus offer is relative to the type of player you are and what exactly you are after.
Players can search for sportsbook bonuses by SBR rating and sort to see only offers from B and higher online sportsbooks. The bonuses page cuts off at the rating level of C, as betting sites in the D to F range should be avoided. However, to see the bonus data associated with all 217 online sportsbooks in the rating guide, visit the betting sites list.
A 100% bonus sounds cool, but a 35X rollover requirement would mean that a player would have to put a massive $35,000 in action.
