Rodgers Is Out But NFL Betting Promos Are In, Including FanDuel’s $150 Cash Offer For Packers-Chiefs

Remember when Aaron Rodgers was upset that the Green Bay Packers used a first-round pick on QB Jordan Love instead of addressing other roster needs? For NFL Week 9, at least, it looks like a pretty good decision.

News broke on Wednesday that Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19, so Love will be behind center. Coach Matt LaFleur told reporters he doesn’t know how much time his star quarterback will miss.

“I just know he won’t be available this week. We’ll address next week when we get there.”

Keep that in mind for Green Bay Packers bets as they visit the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Iowa sportsbooks are promoting some great betting offers for NFL Week 9.

Green Bay at Kansas City NFL Week 9 odds

How to watch the Green Bay at Kansas City game

  • What: Green Bay (7-1) at Kansas City (44)
  • When3:25 p.m. Sunday
  • Where: Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City
  • TV: Fox

Rodgers positive COVID-19 test shifts Packers odds

Kevin Hennessy at FanDuel Sportsbook Iowa said the Rodgers announcement shifted odds at all levels.

“At the FanDuel Sportsbook we were at KC -1 versus the Packers for Sunday and have moved all the way to -7.5 now that Rodgers has been ruled out.”

FanDuel also adjusted its futures markets.

Green Bay still has a big lead to win the NFC North at -1100. The sportsbook pushed out the odds for the Packers to claim the top seed in the NFC, as well. The line moved from +350 to +450, according to Hennessy.

The MVP race isn’t an approved wager in Iowa, but for what it’s worth, FanDuel updated the Rodgers odds there, too. Hennessy said the Packers star went from +800 to +850.

Bet, $5, win $150 at FanDuel Sportsbook

New customers at FanDuel can use enhanced odds for a cash win in the Packers at Chiefs game this weekend.

Customers can start the registration process on a desktop computer, but they will want to download the FanDuel app to claim the “Bet $5, win $150” offer. And, again, it’s a cash offer — not a site credit. Here’s how to get the FanDuel offer:

  • Register
  • Make a first-time deposit.
  • Make the $5 bet on either the Packers or Chiefs.
  • Customers win $150 with a correct $5 wager.

BetMGM no-brainer offer

BetMGM Sportsbook has a Thursday Night Football offer for fans who think the Jets or Colts will get out to a double-digit lead at halftime. Place a moneyline wager on either Thursday night team. If they’re up by 10 or more points at the half, your bet counts as a win, regardless of how the game ends. The maximum bet is $250; remember to opt-in.

Unibet free live bet offer

At Unibet Sportsbook in Iowa, use the single-game parlay feature for a bet of $25 or more and receive a $10 free live bet for NFL Sunday. Eligible players will receive the bonus bet as soon as they place a qualifying wager.

Last chance for DraftKings bet $5, win $200 offer

DraftKings Sportsbook Iowa still has an excellent offer for new Iowa customers in NFL Week 9.

If you — a new customer — bet $5 on any NFL game and their team wins, DraftKings will add $200 in bonus bets, on top of whatever you won in the wager itself.

The bonus comes in eight $25 bonus bets.

Open an account and place the bet at any time up until 10:59 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7. The Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers game on Monday Night Football is the last chance to cash in this offer.

Caesars IA bets could earn a VIP trip to the Super Bowl

Caesars Sportsbook in Iowa is making a VIP trip to Super Bowl 56 possible for new and existing customers in good standing. Here’s how you enter to win:

  • Every eligible bet of $10 or more is a sweepstakes entry.
  • Just find NFL wagers with minimum odds of -200. (A bet at -225 would not qualify, but a +125 moneyline bet would.)
  • Eligible NFL game bets from now until the AFC and NFC Championship games qualify.
  • Wagers placed with a bonus bet and wagers that are cashed out aren’t eligible.

What is Super Bowl VIP treatment at Caesars?

  • Two tickets to Super Bowl 56
  • A two-night stay at a Caesars Rewards Las Vegas Resort
  • A private jet to and from the game
  • Airfare to and from Las Vegas

A runner-up receives two Super Bowl tickets and a two-night stay in LA. The game is on Feb. 13 at SoFi Stadium, home to the LA Chargers and LA Rams.

Betfred double prop bet can double the win

Betfred has great player prop bets, including its “Double Take” offer. If customers in Iowa correctly make a moneyline bet on a player to score the first touchdown in an NFL game, they win. Then, if the player scores a second TD, Betfred will double the moneyline payout.

PointsBet offer for Sunday Night Football

PointsBet Iowa Sportsbook customers can place a bonus bet on a great Tennessee at LA Rams matchup for Sunday Night Football. If your first bet on the game loses, you will receive a bonus bet refund of up to $20 in bonus bets. Remember to opt-in for this one. The wager has to be at least -200 (so -201 and shorter aren’t eligible).
