As a big sports fan, I love sports betting whenever I am in a state that allows it. While Vegas is the most popular and well-known place to sports bet, there are actually better alternatives nowadays if you are in many midwest or east coast states.
The best sports betting app, hands down (in my opinion), is Draftkings Sportsbook. I used Draftkings Sportsbook when visiting Chicago, and I was amazed by the variety of betting options available. My personal favorite types of sports bets to place are parlays, and I particularly enjoy future parlays (betting on multiple season-long outcomes together). I enjoy the high odds I get with parlays, and I think there is more skill in picking futures as opposed to daily outcomes (where there is a lot of volatility and unpredictability). At most Vegas casinos though, these types of ultra future parlays are not allowed.
On Draftkings Sportsbook though, you can place pretty much of any type of future parlay; for example, you could bet on the winner of the US Open in tennis, the Super Bowl winner, the NBA champion, and the F1 champion all in one bet. You could even add individual game bets to the parlay if you want to hit some early lets. This allows you to get odds such as +100,000 (1000-1 odds) if you are so inclined.
If you are in a state that allows you to play on Draftkings Sportsbook, you have to check it out. I have heard great things about Fanduel Sportsbook as well, but I believe for the most part, the states where Fanduel is allowed, so is Draftkings (so it is just personal preference).
Draftkings Sportsbook Recommendation Rating: 5
1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
