    So FYI, Barstool always runs these "Merch Promos" where if you bet $50+ on a certain team, if that team covers you win your bet and the merchandise. I don't really care for their forced betting choices all that often, so you take their bet and take the other side on another site, and lose like $4-$5 in the process, but you'll get the merchandise. So it costs you $5 to win the merch, and their merchandise (hooded sweatshirts, t-shirts, hats, etc), if you won't use it, can always be sold on eBay for $20-$45 apiece, lol.

    They seem to be running a lot of these now, and the market is there on eBay. My son sold the first "Barstool Sportsbook" hoodie we got for $28+shipping this morning.

    I just won 3 more and there's another 4 in the hopper for this week.

    Here's my opinions of the different books so far:

    DraftKings -- the top dog, although they now seem to provide now the least amount of 'goodwill' promos to its clientele. They've also changed their prop bet algos, probably discovering their previous way was a tell for gamblers. The prop area is good, because it lists every game and player on a single page. But the site still looks dark and dingy to me.

    FanDuel -- still provides a couple of no-brainer bets here and there (like the "Spread the Love" promos, which they usually run every few months). The site still needs work, as you have to drill down on each game to find just that game's props, and there's no way to view all player props on one page.

    Barstool -- I'm liking them more and more. The have a few good merchandise promos every week, although very few "no brainer" cash promos. Thanks to their site popularity, the merch can resell on eBay for a decent amount, so if you take that step it's actually better than the no-brainer cash promos. They seem to march to their own drum on the props, which is also good since they can provide a better value than the other books. The only issue I have is their site loading time takes a few seconds longer than normal, which can be irritating.

    MGM -- I like their site the best, and their app the least. Very clean, very easy to use. They have solid promos each week that offers free bets, and like Barstool, they seem to have a different algo on their prop lines, which makes them a must-check. The app is very slow to load, a major negative for many.

    Fox -- slipping badly in my opinion. No "no brainer" promos. The odds boosts are usually ridiculous, which makes them easy passes. They recently instituted a $5 Free Bet for TNF, but that's about it as far as freebies go. They may be finding out the pics of their studio host personnel only gets them so far. I still have a few bucks on there, but I wouldn't be too upset if I closed them out either.

    BetRivers -- I tried them, got their $250 in bonus cash, played through it, and took off. They're like the off-strip Vegas casinos, very low rent.
