Intertops Sportsbook has been credited with taking the first online sports bet in the world, and in true fashion, they have been in preparation for football season. September 10th marks the start of the 2015 NFL season, and Intertops has been in the zone for quite some time now, having gotten a head start on accepting bets toward pre-season predictions. “RGIII: Team for the 2016 season,” has been the top pick among those placing wagers.
According to an Intertops bookmaker, “Robert Griffin III wasn't picked as the starting QB for the Redskins this season - the spot was given to Kevin Cousins - after Griffin suffered a concussion in Week 2 of the preseason. When RGIII was drafted in 2012, he was one of the most anticipated Rookies in the NFL, but several injuries led to today's situation and to some experts saying that he should make a move to get his career back on track.”
Previous changes have been made to NFL rules regarding the “PAT,” or point after touchdown. It is now to be placed on the 15-yard line as opposed to the 2-yard line, resulting in a lot of movement for the “Regular Season PAT Success Rate – Over/Under 95.5%.”
A $500 Free Bet offer is being launched by Intertops to celebrate the season's kickoff. In order to qualify, individuals must simply wager on the NFL during the regular season. They will also be hosting a 20% Kick Off Bonus worth up to $100 on deposits made through September 13th, when using the bonus code: NFL20.
