Game On: Here’s How FanDuel Sportsbook Stacks Up Against The Competition

FSP Staff Dec 1st 12:14 PM EST.

Calling all New York sports fans! You wouldn't believe it, but it's finally happening; the state has officially approved online sports betting licenses for FanDuel Sportsbook, DraftKings, and Caesars Sportsbook.

“What does this mean for me?” To start, this could make watching the Giants or the Jets way more exciting; even when they’re playing like they have this season.

As most of our readers are avid sports fans, we’ve done a deep dive on all of your online options, to uncover the best of the best for your sports betting needs. 

Here’s everything you need to know:

Key Similarities

  • All are available on iOS and Android 
  • All offer 20+ sports for betting
  • All include free registration 
  • All set to legally operate across NY state in early 2022

Key Differences

  • FanDuel Sportsbooks interface is intuitive and easy-to-use
  • Caesars Sportsbook allows users to earn Caesar reward points
  • FanDuel offers less expensive odds
  • DraftKings includes gambling-specific statistics

FanDuel Sportsbook 

FanDuel Sportsbook is a safe, legitimate, and easy way to put your money where your mouth is and bet on your go-to New York teams (don’t act like you're not a Jets / Giants fan, we can practically smell your jersey). 

Even better, with FanDuel Sportsbook, New Yorkers who register for an account now will get a free $100 bet when the app goes live in New York. 

For first-time bettors, FanDuel Sportsbook is the perfect place to start. Their site is packed with tips, glossaries, and tutorials that walk you through every aspect of sports betting and let you know what types of bets each sport offers. 

Best of all, with FanDuel Sportsbook, you can cash out your winnings at any time. The process is so easy, no waiting in lines to get your funds. You can even make bets as you're watching the next Knicks game, till the last horn blows.


DraftKings is a daily fantasy sports contest and sports betting operator, and besides FanDuel, probably one of the most popular across the nation. Registration is free, and DraftKings are offering a $50 free bet for all new users in New York State.

Though the navigation isn't as user-friendly as FanDuel, DraftKings’ simplified interface makes it a great choice for first-timers who don't want to be bogged down by confusing layouts and out-of-this-world terms. 

Available on both iOS and Android, you can even bet on the Jets game while commuting to work.

However, their Pre-Live offer for new New York users is half of what FanDuel is offering.

Caesars Sportsbook 

Yup, the official sportsbook from Caesars resorts. Football fans can now win big by placing lucrative bets, but can also earn all the Caesar reward points their heart desires. Unfortunately, their website and app aren't exactly user-friendly, and there aren't as many resources for beginners.

With Caesars Sportsbook, users get access to weekly trend report videos from Caesars Sportsbook’s Chief Trends Officer Trey Wingo. These insights can then be used to users' advantage to place smart bets where the odds aren't as stacked up against them. We couldn’t find a Pre-Live offer for new New York users on their site, which makes us wonder how they’re gonna celebrate the long-overdue legalization of sports betting in the Empire State? 

Final Thoughts

Any of these three will work, but FanDuel Sportsbook is our clear winner. Especially after you realize that DraftKings and Caesars Sportsbook are noticeably more expensive than FanDuel for a lot of contests based on the odds being offered. 

With FanDuel Sportsbook, the betting odds are superior, and with all their resources, every user is set up to win! Any New York sports fan will be able to navigate complex betting scenarios easily whether they're a seasoned bettor or a cautious first-timer. 

Sign-up for FanDuel Sportsbook today and set yourself up to win big the rest of the season!


21+ and physically present in NY. Bonus issued in non-withdrawable free bets or site credit that expires 7 days after FanDuel accepts its first real money sports wager in NY (“Go Live Date”).
