DraftKings has been the top daily fantasy sports website for years in the US and has a head start in both technology and customer base in New Jersey. It has been the quickest book to react to legalized sports betting in New Jersey, as it was the first book to offer legal wagering outside of Nevada. DraftKings has a vast knowledge of one-day contests and multi-sport experience with their DFS background and have already opened a physical sportsbook in Atlantic City as well as hosted a brand new Sports Betting National Title event.

DraftKings Review Summary
In short, DraftKings was the industry standard in DFS and that gave them a head start in sports betting and they have not looked back. They leave little to be desired with the interface, options, and promotions desired to be the best sportsbook in the industry. If you could only sign up with one Sportsbook, I would recommend DraftKings.
