Michigan March Madness Promos Help Bettors Build Bankrolls

Written By Matt Schoch on March 5, 2021
BetRivers, PointsBet, TwinSpires among the operators to launch early extras for college basketball's biggest month.

The men’s NCAA Tournament is still a couple weeks away, but Michigan sports betting operators are already rolling out March Madness promos.

With Michigan in line for a top seed and Michigan State fighting for a right to make its customary March run, there will be lots of excitement this month. There’s also a chance to win some extra money.

There will be more college basketball promotions to come, but for now, here’s what we’re seeing across the state.

‘Build Your Free Bet’ at BetRivers

BetRivers is giving college basketball bettors a chance to start building their NCAA Tournament bankrolls now.

In the Build Your Free Bet promotion, Michigan players can accumulate up to $250 of free bets heading into the Big Dance.

Here’s how it works: From now through March 14, players place $50 or more in real money wagers on NCAA basketball singles (at odds -200 on longer). For every $50 bet, players receive $5 to your Tournament Free Bet.

BetRivers maxes out the free bet at $250. It will be available by 3 p.m. on March 15. It can be used throughout the NCAA tournament, expiring at midnight on April 5.

Parlay bets can also qualify, but only if each leg’s odds are -200 or longer.

‘Make It Rain’ At PointsBet With Paige Spiranac

This promotion has been going on for quite some time at PointsBet, but we wanted to draw some attention to it here.

Social media golf personality Paige Spiranac is a brand ambassador for the brand. The company themed a college basketball betting promo around her.

Through the Make It Rain $3 Every 3 promotion, Spiranac releases Paige’s Daily Game each day.

If you place a $50 spread bet on the game, you receive $3 in free bets for every 3-pointer your team scores.

Eligible wagers are cash bets only and for pre-game core spread bets. Cashed out bets and parlays are not included.

Players can use the free bets for one month, so you can build your NCAA Tournament bankroll with the winnings.

TwinSpires has 5-for-1 basketball deal

At TwinSpires, players can make it a 5-for-1 as part of the Hoops Free Bet Club.

When you make five $10 wagers on any NBA and/or college basketball game, you automatically receive a free $10 bet.

There is an opt-in requirement for the promotion.

We’ll keep an eye on the operators for more promotions throughout the month.
