Did you know you can bet on the NFL in Bitcoin, directly, without converting it to US dollars? Well, you can. There are Bitcoin bonuses although most of these are unavailable to USA players, but there are still lots of reasons why you may want to bet in Bitcoin. Let’s see.
If you want to bet on the NFL (and, of course, the NY Giants!) in Bitcoin, your options are pretty much reduced to Bovada and Nitrogen Sports now that 5Dimes has temporarily ceased operations. But regardless of the sportsbook brand you choose, the advantages are all the same.
Bitcoin deposits and withdrawals can be anonymous and are absolutely the best way to move funds around when you’re betting on sports. As you probably know, card deposits and bank transfers can lead you to all sorts of trouble. Bitcoin is king when it comes to US sports betting.
All the crypto sportsbooks are brand new. Learn to make a distinction between an old brand (such as 5Dimes or Bovada) that added crypto as a deposit / withdrawal method, and a sportsbook that is designed to run on crypto and takes bets in crypto (not in USD) such as Cloudbet or Nitrogen Sports.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ NY Giants (Sep 13, 2020) odds and picks
We’ll use Nitrogen Sports betting markets and odds for our prediction of Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season.
Our Giants are hosting the Steelers and although things don’t look too good now that Roethlisberger is back, we still think the Giants might have a chance here.
The spread is Giants +6 at Nitrogen, and you can bet the spread anywhere from +3.5 to 7.5, giving you flexibility to choose the one you want.
The Steelers are one of top three defenses in the NFL, but if they had one weakness it was against the run. Look for monster numbers from our boy Saquon Barkley.
At the same time, the Giants defense ranks around the bottom of the league. It is expected that Ben Roethlisberger will produce.
All things considered, we think there’s value in betting on Giants (as the Steelers constantly underestimate underdogs and tend to lose matchups like this one), betting on over 21.5 Giants points (Barkley and Danny Dimes will make the Giants offense go), and betting on over 46.0 points total.
You’ll find all these bets at Nitrogen Sports, where you can bet anonymously with Bitcoin.
