If you win these Detroit Lions tickets from BetMGM Sportsbook, let’s admit it: You’re just going for the atmosphere and to see some live NFL football.
The other ticket deal around these parts this week? Well, that one could involve seeing a couple winners. This is backed up by Michigan sportsbooks.
The Ilitch family, owners of Little Caesars and a new downtown arena sporting the name of the pizza chain, is combining the marketing forces of their pro sports teams for this one.
Detroit Red Wings, Tigers could be fun again soon
After a long and cold walk through the wilderness, Detroit sports legitimately seem to finally be on the rise.
Some of the best evidence comes with the pair of Ilitch teams, the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Tigers. Both once shepherded successfully by the late patriarch Mike Ilitch, the teams could have fun seasons ahead.
To get in on the ground floor of these years, the teams are offering a ticket deal for their openers.
For a limited time, if you buy tickets for the Red Wings opener on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Lightning, you can get tickets for the Tigers 2022 opener on April 8 against the Chicago White Sox.
Tickets start at just $59 for an upper level ticket to Tigers Opening Day, now called Detroit’s Biggest Party, and the Wings’ opener. Lower-level tickets at Comerica get you lower-bowl tickets to LCA for $99.
There is an eight-ticket maximum for the promotion.
Red Wings futures odds suggest good times ahead
If you’re feeling bullish on the Red Wings, there are plenty of bets out there for the homer in you, as detailed recently by Nolan Bianchi.
The Red Wings were +900 to make the playoffs on Friday at BetRivers Sportsbook.
The over/under points total at Caesars MI Sportsbook was set at 76.5 points. At FanDuel, the Red Wings were at 77.5. This after the team totaled 74 points last season.
MLB odds are not yet available, but there’s optimism finally around the Tigers after a 77-85 season, the emergence of young players and the possibility of Chris Ilitch finally living up to the family name and spending this offseason in free agency.
