Special bets at sportsbooks standout as out of the ordinary wagers that often provide bettors with unique situations and compelling odds. Some of these wagers provide among the best values a bettor will find at a given sportsbook.
Among the niche options at the sportsbook, fans can find intriguing options to make season-long NFL viewing all the more exciting. Here’s a look at some of the best team betting at DraftKings ahead of the 2022 NFL season.
2022 Team Betting Specials at DraftKings
There are several mixed team specials available for betting at DraftKings ahead of the season, including a couple that provide potential value.
One mixed team betting special at DraftKings lumps all of the last place finishers from a year ago together, and that includes both the New York Giants and New York Jets. This wager calls for at least one of those cellar dwellers from last season to win their respective division in 2022. In addition to the two New York teams, bettors see Baltimore, Carolina, Denver, Detroit, Jacksonville, and Seattle as options for this wager.
Only twice since 2002 has the NFL not seen at least one worst-to-first team among division winners. That’s probably why DraftKings favors “Yes” at -200, while “No” gets +165 odds.
New York’s other team, the Buffalo Bills, also sees several intriguing team betting specials at DraftKings. One of these wagers offers that provides value is for a “First Time Super Bowl Winner.”
The Bills stand among the 12 NFL franchises to never have won the Big Game. But Buffalo enters 2022 as the betting favorite to win Super Bowl LVII. That’s why the odds for this bet provide value, since DraftKings lists the “Yes” at +200 (“No” at -250).
DraftKings also provides favorable odds for another team betting special involving the Bills. This one requires both Buffalo and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter the playoffs as the respective 1-seeds in their conferences. The odds for that feat stand at +1400 for “Yes.”
A longshot betting special at DraftKings involves the Bills, as well as the Broncos, Chargers, Cowboys, 49ers, Packers, Rams, and Ravens to will win more than 10.5 games in the regular season. The “Yes” odds for this wager check in at +15000, though it seems unlikely to hit.
Bills Team Betting Specials at DraftKings
Bills fans see several team betting specials for their squad at DraftKings. The sportsbook provides 10 different wagers for bettors to consider ahead of the 2022 season.
One bet that provides value and seems like something that can happen is the Bills scoring Over 490.5 regular season points. DraftKings set the odds for that wager at +140. Buffalo scored 483 points last season, and returns all major offensive pieces for 2022. It’s no stretch to say the Bills can register eight more points this season.
Another special with value provides a parlay-style set up that necessitates Josh Allen passing for over 4499.5 yards and Buffalo wins the AFC East. The “Yes” for this wager sees odds at +200. The Bills remain the odds-on favorite to win the division, and Allen got close to that passing yards total last season. He finished with 4,407 passing yards in 2021, and registered 4,544 in 2020 over 16 games.
One longshot to consider at DraftKings is the Bills to win all Regular Season Home Games and Josh Allen to have Most Regular Season Passing Yards. The odds for “Yes” with this wager stand at +5000.
Buffalo went 6-3 at home last season, but face a tough home slate in 2022, with games against the Titans, Steelers, Packers, Vikings, and Browns, as well as their divisional opponents. As far as Allen’s passings yards, he finished eighth in 2021 after finishing fifth in 2020. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that this bet hits, which would bring quite a payout.
Giants Betting Specials
The New York Giants also see 10 different team betting specials at DraftKings for the 2022 NFL season. There are some intriguing options for Giants fans who think sportsbooks might be underrating their squad this season.
One betting special that provides value is “Giants Over 360.5 Reg Season Points Scored,” which the sportsbook provides +100 odds for. Their 258 points scored last season checked in last among NFC teams and second-fewest in the NFL. But with a new, offensive-minded head coach and healthy offensive playmakers, New York should be able to clear that figure.
The other wager at DraftKings to consider is “NY Giants to beat DAL Cowboys, WAS Commanders & PHI Eagles at least once during the Reg Season.” The odds here enter at +280. While this isn’t a feat the team accomplished in 2021, they did so in 2020 and 2016.
One player prop-style betting special associated with the Giants looks for Daniel Jones to have at least five passing touchdowns in any Regular Season Game. The “Yes” odds for this wager stand at +350. Jones has accomplished the five-TD feat once in his career, back in 2019. He also has two games with four touchdown passes. Jones may have the opportunity to hit this mark, but considering he hasn’t thrown more than two touchdowns in a single game since 2019, it’s a longshot.
Jets Betting Specials
The New York Jets also see 10 different team betting specials at DraftKings for the 2022 NFL season. The Jets have stylish new helmets, and will look sharp as longshots this season.
One wager with plus odds and a chance of hitting is the Jets scoring over 350.5 points in the regular season. Last year, New York finished with 310 total points, third fewest in the AFC. But that was with a rookie quarterback and a lack of game-breaking skill position players. The Jets should be much improved on offense this season, so there’s a chance this betting special hits.
An intriguing longshot wager to consider for the Jets is for rookie Breece Hall to go Over 999.5 Reg Season Rushing Yards and score Over 8.5 Reg Season Rushing TDs. The “Yes” odds here sit at +1100.
By all accounts, Hall seems like a shoo-in to be the feature back in New York, upping the chances he hits these marks. Hall seems like the best running back in this rookie class. He was the first selected in the 2022 NFL Draft, going No. 36 overall in the second round.
And history favors a rookie rusher hitting the 1,000-yard plateau. In each of the last 10 seasons, at least one rookie accomplished the feat. What’s more, nine rookie running backs over that span also scored at least nine touchdowns in their first season.
