Even The NFL Draft Brings Out New-User Bonus Offers From Michigan Sportsbooks

Posted By Danny Lawhon on April 26, 2021

The NFL Draft tends to bring out two varieties of offseason sports fans. You’re either ready for three days of evaluations, trades and surprises, or you go find something else to do for a weekend and catch up later.

A couple of Michigan sports betting heavyweights are banking on enough of those former fans with a multistate NFL Draft betting promo this week.

If this week’s podium-fest is the event to get you to pull the trigger on a new sports betting account, here’s what can await.

New User Bonus Up to $1,050

Sure thing at quarterback means sure-fire DraftKings free bets

DraftKings Sportsbook has a straightforward NFL Draft betting promo for new users this week.

Even if the No. 1 pick isn’t Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, as is widely expected, a signal-caller will almost certainly go first. To that end, DraftKings is giving you $100 in free bets if you place a $1 bet or more on any NFL Draft market before the draft begins.

If a quarterback is selected first, you’ll get the credit in the form of four $25 free bets. You must use those within a week.

Simple enough!

FanDuel goes further with Trevor Lawrence hype

If you weren’t already convinced about the Lawrence-to-Jacksonville stuff, FanDuel Sportsbook is here to lock you in.

The leader so far in the Michigan handle race has +2000 odds on Lawrence being the top choice. The maximum bet is $5, but that market will earn you $100 in profit.

One note of caution: That bet must be your first wager after your first deposit. That’s how the special FanDuel odds will kick in.

NFL Draft a rare spring betting experiment

If you want to tinker with other draft betting options, many sportsbooks are obliging. Be warned, however, that the closer we get to draft night on Thursday, the more odds might change and tighten up.

So if you’re going to bet the draft and know your picks, lock them in. And if you have an idea how the Detroit Lions will act, affirm your gut instinct with our early preview on the Lions’ possible choices.

Plus, this will be the last NFL action you’ll see until late summer, unless you’re going to hammer the futures markets.
