If you think Luka Garza and the Hawkeyes have what it takes to make the Final Four, get your bets down at DK.

With the introduction of sports betting to Iowa today, DraftKings Sportsbook has some specials for everyone, and a specific promo for all new signups in the Land of the Rolling Prairie.

For bettors in both Iowa and New Jersey, if you place a bet at DraftKings on Luka Garza and the Iowa Hawkeyes to make the Final Four, your odds will be boosted from +1400 to +1550.

And if you’re a new signup and creating an account today in the Hawkeye State, it gets even better: all new users can take advantage of a $500 sign-up bonus and a first bet match up to $500 for those that create and fund their accounts.

It’s a great deal for bettors looking for a team that’s not a favorite for now, but for sure has the assets to make a run to Atlanta and the 2020 NCAA Final Four. Currently ranked 20th in the AP Poll, the Hawkeyes are 18-8, and 9-6 in the brutally-tough Big Ten this season. There’s little chance any team they see opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament bracket would be more difficult than what they’ve gone through in the B1G regular season.

One of the most efficient offenses in the country, ranking 6th in adjusted efficiency, they can beat people inside with Garza and outside with drivers such as Joe Weiskamp and Connor McCaffery. If CJ Fredrick can get back from injury, they’re as poised to make a run as any team in their conference.
