It’s NFL conference championship weekend, which means there won’t be a shortage of online sports betting promos for NFL games on Sunday.

This will be a prime opportunity for Michigan sports bettors to capitalize on some great offers.

While it’s early in the week, expect to see more come out as we get closer to the weekend.

Here’s a rundown of what’s being offered to current and new users alike.

Rams, Chiefs favored in conference championships

The home teams find themselves as the favorites going into Sunday’s AFC and NFC Championships.

Los Angeles is largely a 3.5-point favorite at sportsbooks against the San Francisco 49ers. The over/under total is varying around 46 to 46.5 points.

Kansas City is the pretty clear favorite in the AFC Championship. The Chiefs are in the 7 to 7.5-point favorite range against the Cincinnati Bengals. The total for that game is much higher, with most posting it at 54.5 points.

Risk-free same game parlays at DraftKings

DraftKings Sportsbook is offering up risk-free same game parlays for both of Sunday’s games. Opt-in and place a same game parlay for either or both the AFC and NFC Championships. If that parlay loses, you will receive a free bet matching your wager, up to $25. The offer applies for each of the two games.

When it comes to the First TD Scorer, DraftKings is offering up a promo that if you bet on that market and your player doesn’t score first, but does score, it will credit you with a free bet up to $20.

DraftKings is also offering up NBA profit boosts if you wager on Sunday’s NFL action. Opt-in to the promo and place $25+ in bets on the Sunday NFL games to qualify. If you place $25+ in NFL bets, you will receive two 25% NBA profit boosts. If you place $50+ in NFL bets, you will receive an additional three 25% profit boosts for a total of five. Qualifying bets require odds of -250 or longer.

You can also opt-in for a free bet if you place a live bet during one of the games on Sunday. Opt-in and place a $10+ live bet with minimum odd of -250 or longer and receive a $10 free bet.

New users at DraftKings still have the option to make a $5 wager on any NFL moneyline and win $280 in free bets.

If that’s not appetizing enough for you, new users can also get a risk-free bet of up to $5,000 this weekend. Just make your first deposit of at least $1,000 and receive a free bet if your first bet loses, up to $5,000.

BetMGM offers risk-free first TD scorer bet

Picking the first TD scorer in a game often provides a nice payout. BetMGM Sportsbook wants to give you a risk-free bet for that market.

Place a bet on the first player to score a touchdown in either of the two championship games. If your pick isn’t the first player to score, you’ll get your wager back in free bets, up to $25.

Caesars handing out a bonus for totals

Caesars Sportsbook is offering up a chance at a free $25 bet this weekend.

All you need to do is bet $25+ on the total points market (over/under) for both the AFC and NFC Championship games. If those wagers both win, you will earn a $25 free bet.

FanDuel offering +3000 odds

New users at FanDuel Sportsbook can still get +3000 odds on any NFL playoffs moneyline. Just sign up with an account, make a deposit and place your first bet in the NFL Playoffs Enhanced Odds market on the homepage. Put $5 on the team you like to win and get +3000 odds on its moneyline.

Any users can get a risk-free same game parlay up to $10 this weekend. Place a 3+leg same game parlay on any of the two conference championship games. If the parlay loses, you are refunded in site credit up to $10.

FanDuel is also still offering a risk-free first wager for new users up to $1,000. If your first sportsbook bet loses, FanDuel will refund you in site credit up to $1,000.

PointsBet handing out a free live bet

PointsBet Sportsbook is giving out a free $20 bet to use during the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.

Just place a pre-game $20+ bet on the Bengals vs. Chiefs and receive a $20 free bet to use live during the game.

FOX Bet giving away a free bet for free

FOX Bet Sportsbook is giving away a free $5 bet for the conference championships. Opt-in through the challenges section and the free bet will be credited to your account. It can only be used on a single NFL Conference Championship game on Sunday.

The FOX Bet app still also has a risk-free first bet for new users. They will refund your first wager up to $500 (on odds of -200 or less) in a free bet within seven days if your initial wager loses.

Keep checking this page throughout the week for updated promo offers for Sunday’s games.
