The state of Louisiana has officially joined the ranks of the mobile sports betting world. Mobile sports betting is officially live and DraftKings Sportsbook launched Friday morning at 9:01 a.m. ET in the Pelican State.

DraftKings will be offering odds boosts and promotions as part of their launch. This evening at 8 p.m. ET, the Pelicans tip off against the Nuggets at the Smoothie King Center. DraftKings is offering a no-brainer promotion for this game. Under the promotions tab at the sportsbook, “either team to score a point” has been boosted to +100. The max bet is $25 and must be placed prior to tip-off.

Following that, Sunday’s AFC title game brings former LSU star Joe Burrow and his Bengals taking on the Chiefs. Bettors can double their money ($25 max) if Joe Burrow completes at least one pass. Given that we won’t see a weather repeat of the Patriots-Bills game from earlier this year, it’s safe to say this is a no-brainer.
