Promoting any gambling websites or even sports book sites which operate offshore is legal in the US as long as you have a disclaimer on your site that such activity may be unlawful in the US and it is the user's duty to check the laws before participating in those sites.

As long as you warn individuals in the US, because websites are internationally accessible, there is absolutely nothing illegal in promoting and advertising those sites on your site.

Hi, I'm not talking about promoting it on my site. I want to know if I can promote my site using offline methods...
Such as advertising on a billboard, printing flyers and pass them out, wrapping my car with my website on it...
Basically any offline marketing method

Yes, you can promote your site in the paper and billboards and traditional marketing, since you actually said you are not taking any bets, just promoting the sites. That is not illegal.
