Last month the New York State Gaming Commission announced that it awarded nine sportsbook licenses to various operators. Among the nine granted permission to operate in the state of New York was FanDuel. 

FanDuel has quickly risen to become one of the leading mobile sportsbook brands in the country. The company got its start as a daily fantasy game website and has rapidly expanded into sports betting, having first launched in New Jersey three years ago.

In addition to being a trusted, reliable brand, FanDuel has become widely known for the pricing and types of wagers it offers across all major sports. Most notably, prop bets. Below, we outline what you can expect to see from FanDuel New York ahead of its launch in the Empire State

FanDuel New York Launch

November was a busy month for the NYSGC. In addition to announcing nine mobile sportsbooks that will launch, the commission also finalized the framework for sportsbook operators. Thus, the last piece of the puzzle needed for sportsbooks to launch their mobile apps and sites in the state. 

Since news broke in November, all nine sportsbooks have been preparing their servers and infrastructure for a New York launch. However, no official launch date has been given. Most expect sportsbooks such as FanDuel to be ready sometime during January or February 2022, just in time for the Super Bowl

Betting Options at FanDuel New York

Over the years FanDuel has been committed to consistency across states. With that said, we expect the betting options at FanDuel to look the same in New York as they do elsewhere. Betting options include: 

  • Point spread bets
  • Moneyline bets 
  • Total wagers (over/under for teams, quarters, halves, games, etc.) 
  • Player, team, and outcome prop bets 
  • Futures bets 
  • Bets on fantasy production 
  • Parlays
  • In-game wagering 

To summarize, FanDuel offers an extremely comprehensive library of bet types across all sporting events. New York sports bettors will be thoroughly pleased with the options they have at FanDuel, the offering is second to none. 

Bonuses & Promotions 

When it launches, expect a variety of FanDuel New York promo and bonus offers. This includes new bettor bonuses as well as ongoing promotions and bet boosts. 

Along with regularly offering odds boosts, FanDuel tends to offer existing players other special promotions from time to time depending on the time of year or if a particular event is forthcoming,  such as March Madness, NBA season openers, or the Super Bowl. 

New patrons in New York can expect a FanDuel New York promo once the sportsbook app launches in the state. Typically FanDuel offers new players a risk-free bet of up to $1,000, which is a very competitive promotional offer. 

Overall, sports bettors in New York can expect FanDuel to provide a variety of betting options, competitive pricing, and an overall seamless user experience. FanDuel is one of the most bettor-friendly sportsbooks available in the United States. 

Pricing at FanDuel

In addition to the bet types, the pricing at FanDuel is also competitive. It’s hard to say with confidence that FanDuel is always the best (or has the lowest vig), but it has demonstrated a consistent track record of offering some of the best odds. 

FanDuel is typically among the best for moneyline wagers, and pregame pricing typically starts at the industry standard of -110 for both football and basketball spreads. 

Prop Bets at FanDuel

FanDuel has built a large reputation for a robust list of prop bet options. The variety and options grow as the sports betting industry grows

For example, during the NFL season you can expect to see a laundry list of prop bets on individual player performance, team outcomes, and more. Furthermore, FanDuel consistently attempts to post its prop bet offerings well ahead of gameday, while most competitors typically wait until gameday. 

Additionally, FanDuel is known for offering “odds boosts” on several bet types, including prop bets, which create larger potential payouts. These tend to rotate from sport-to-sport and day-to-day, but in the past we’ve seen odds boosts offered on a team covering the spread as well as a particular MLB player hitting a home run in a game.
