Welcome Bonuses for First-Time Users
Before we take a look at the game from a handicapping perspective, we will explain the different bonus formats that are available. First, all the Illinois football promo codes that we are providing are reserved for first-time users only.
However, if you already have an account at a sportsbook in Illinois, you can establish another one to take advantage of the bonus opportunity. In fact, there is no limit to the number of accounts that you can have, so this is something to keep in mind.
Specific Offer Details
DraftKings will provide $200 in bonus bets in return for a $5 qualifying wager, win or lose. The Caesar’s bonus will deliver $250 in bonus bets after you make a $50 first bet. BetRivers will return the amount of your initial wager in the form of a bonus bet of up to $500 if you lose.

Aaron Rodgers has taken his talent and his considerable penchant for drama to New York, and the Jordan Love era has gotten underway in Green Bay. He has completed 50 of his 83 career passes to date, with three touchdowns and the same number of interceptions.
The Packers’ running game is strong with Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon sharing the load, but they are banged up at wide receiver. Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs did not practice on Wednesday due to hamstring injuries, and they are questionable.
Justin Fields will be behind center for the Bears, and he is looking to take a step forward in his third year in the league. He is the first quarterback in NFL history to run the ball for 1,000 yards with eight touchdowns.
Fields carried the ball eight times for just 20 yards in the first meeting between these teams last year, but he gained 71 yards on six carries with a touchdown in the second go-round against Joe Barry’s defense.
The Bears were dead last in team defense a year ago, but they made some upgrades during the offseason. They brought in linebacker Tremaine Edmunds and defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, and they have nowhere to go but up.
Our Pick for the Packers-Bears Game
The Bears are 1-point favorites at DraftKings IL at the time this is being written, and the total is 42. We do not have a strong opinion about a side or total, but we feel very good about a particular proposition.
Packers running back AJ Dillon may not be the starter, but we expect him to see plenty of action, and he is a load near the goal line. We are going to take the Dillon anytime touchdown prop at +205.
