DKNG Stock Slides as the NFL Season Is Heating Up Alongside the Promos


DKNG stock was trading at $14.64 As of 12:26 PM EDT on Monday

For the third weekend of the NFL season, sports betting volume is reportedly strong once more, despite an increase in incentives. Analysis by Wells Fargo revealed an increase in promotions on September 25 compared to September 18, when FanDuel (OTCPK:PDYPY) changed its incentives in the majority of states from “Bet $5, get $150 in free bets” to “second chance bet up to $1,000.” According to analyst Daniel Politzer, BetRivers (RSI) also revised their prior $250 deposit match to a second chance wager up to $500.

Draftkings Stock Among Other Sports Betting Stocks Increased Following The First NFL Weekend’s High Betting Activity And Parlay-Busting Upsets

DraftKings (NASDAQ:DKNG), Caesars Sportsbook (NASDAQ:CZR), and BetMGM (NYSE:MGM) (OTCPK:GMVHF) was the online sports betting companies offering the biggest promotions overall, according to Politzer. Therefore, the actions taken by FanDuel and BetRivers (RSI) may be a precursor to the OSB industry turning toward the market leaders and becoming more promotional overall as the football season progresses. That would go against some of the corporations’ declared objectives to reduce marketing expenses in Q3 while focusing on profitability.
