Everything’s bigger in Texas. Or so they say.

That phrase will certainly be put to the test this weekend at American Airlines Center in Dallas. And DraftKings Sportsbook is ready to reward New York bettors with $100 in free bets for a $5 free bet on UFC 277.

Best part is, bettors don’t even need a DraftKings NY promo code. Simply click on the banner below and a take advantage of this great NY sports betting offer.

DraftKings NY promo: Bet $5, win $100 on UFC 277

One of the more anticipated rematches in UFC title history takes place in Texas on Saturday. And DraftKings Sportsbook NY is set to give out $100 in free bets for new users who wager at least $5 on the event.

What’s more, it’s as simple as it gets to claim. You don’t even need a DraftKings NY promo code. All you need is to click the “Play Now” button above and sign up for a new DraftKings Sportsbook account. Then, make a real-money deposit of at least $5 and place a bet of at least $5 on UFC 277 before the event begins.

As soon as you do, DraftKings Sportsbook will redeem your account with $100 in free bets in addition to any winnings you eventually pocket from your bet.

That reward will be given in four $25 free bets that will be valid for seven days.

UFC 277 offers plenty of NY sports betting action

Saturday’s lineup features five fights, including two championship showdowns. And both will draw plenty of action for NY online sportsbooks, including DraftKings NY.

The co-main event features Julianna Peña and Amanda Nunes, the second matchup between the two coaches of The Ultimate Fighter. Peña will defend her bantamweight championship after her submission victory over Nunes in December. Nunes, meanwhile, looks to avenge that defeat and become the first fighter ever to regain the bantamweight title.

If that weren’t enough, the top two fighters in the interim flyweight go head to head on Saturday. Former champ Brandon Moreno faces off for the second time against Kai Kara-France after the former claimed a unanimous decision two and a half years ago.

However, Moreno faces an uphill battle as Kara-France has won three straight fights during a four-wins-in-five-bout stretch since that December 2019 loss against Moreno.

Best bet: Julianna Peña moneyline

Odds don’t favor it. But Peña may be the next greatest MMA fighter. And she very well could defend that title Saturday.

In nine title fights between July 2016 and March 2021, Nunes remained the unquestioned champ. Then, in December 2021, Peña delivered Nunes’ worst/earliest loss since her first-ever fight in 2008.

A second-round submission gave Peña the title of bantamweight champion. Mainly because of her stamina, as she endured Nunes’ ability to weather opponents with early-round punches. Peña instead relied on the old-school grappling, eventually working her way to a choke hold for the victory.

Betting on this bout to go the distance seems silly. One or the other will happen: Nunes avenges the defeat with her traditional early-round onslaught, or Peña does what she did the last go-round by withstanding the barrage and working her way to the submission.

Neither Nunes nor Peña has had a fight since their matchup in December. Each has had ample time for studying. That much time typically favors the reigning champion. Peña to successfully defend her belt appears the correct play.

But, here’s the best part about this DraftKings NY bonus: You don’t even need to be right. Just make your minimum $5 bet and receive $100 in free bets from the NY sports betting app.
