You Can Bet on the Bears +89 with PointsBet Illinois This Week

Sports Gambling

PointsBet Illinois arrived on the Illinois online sports betting  scene last weekend with a big splash and is coming back for more in Week 2 with crazy no-brainer Bears vs. Giants odds.

The Bears are a 5.5-point favorite on Sunday over the Giants, but PointsBet is giving Illinois bettors the chance to take them as an absurd 89-point underdog. Assuming the market spread holds steady, this offer represents 94.5 points of spread value on the Bears. More importantly, it sets up what looks to be a sure-fire cover.

Crazy Bears Odds Boost at PointsBet Illinois

PointsBet Illinois has absurd Bears vs. Giants odds, and two questions are likely to immediately come to mind.

  1. What is the significance of the Bears as an 89-point underdog?
  2. Why would PointsBet do this?

Let’s tackle the first question. PointsBet recently partnered with former Bears kick returner Devin Hester on some promotional items. As such, PointsBet is honoring his career long punt return of 89 yards with a special Bears +89 odds offer. Hester accomplished the feat when he ran back a fourth-quarter punt in October 2010.

As for why PointsBet Illinois would do this? Well, the answer is pretty straightforward. With the official launch of William Hill in Illinois (and a $300 risk-free bet new user offer) the competition has quickly heated up for bettors’ loyalty and, of course, dollars.

In order to compete with the likes of market front runners such as DraftKings at Casino Queen Sportsbook, PointsBet is arriving on the scene with a slew of aggressive promos for both new and current users.

Last weekend, PointsBet Illinois enjoyed great success with a Bears CrowdBooster promo that drove the line over 100 points, which, obviously, created a more than comfortable cover. While the +89 offer falls short of Week 1’s triple-digit point spread, bettors can take solace in the fact that no game in NFL history has been decided by more than 73 points. Perhaps the Giants pull an upset on Sunday at Soldier Field, but we can confidently assert that they’re not going to win by 90+ points.

So, one way to get the desired attention is to create unrivaled odds on the Bears’ home opener against the Giants, and for Illinois online sports bettors, that’s a beautiful thing as they have an opportunity to cash what essentially amounts to a can’t-miss offer.
