Australian Sites Offering Huge Week 1 NFL Daily Fantasy
After last season left us contemplating over one of the best football games ever played, the much anticipated 2017 NFL season kicks off this weekend. NFL is arguably the godfather of daily fantasy sports, with the likes of Draftkings and Fanduel in the U.S exploding because of American Football.
Australian DFS agencies have caught onto the massive popularity of the sport and all of them offer some great weekly tournaments, see a comprehensive list of the best DFS and tournament style competitions below.

Draftstars will once again be offering the biggest prize pools for daily fantasy compeitions in Australia this season. Similar to their extremely popular $15 AFL tournaments, Draftstars will be offering a marquee $15 competition featuring all of the Monday games (American Sunday games).
The guaranteed prize pool has started at $20,000 for week one, but with an increase in popularity we could see that grow throughout the season. Draftstars also offer all the smaller prize pool tournaments for the Sunday slate and single games including 6-man competitions, double ups or $2 mini tournaments.
As well as offering a massive $20k guaranteed prizepool for the Monday games, Moneyball have decided to put a lot of focus on the single game compeitions. They are offering prize pools of up to $5,000 for the marquee Friday and Tuesday morning games as well as one for the later games on Monday if you don’t fancy waking up at 3am!
TopBetta & SportChamps
The two tournament betting sites will both be gearing up for a big NFL season. Both TopBetta and SportChamps will be offering week to week tournaments featuring solely that weekend’s games. However, TopBetta, as they do with the Australian sporting leagues, will be offering season long tournaments ranging from $1-$55 entry fee.
Spread betting doesn’t translate to every sport and its not for everyone. But one sport that it does work really well with and offer some great markets for is the NFL. Matchups are key in the NFL so you can take advantage of them in player markets, total points markets and more. Pointsbet will be offering hundreds of markets for every game of the 2017 season.
