The excitement level for the NFL season’s opening weekend may be unmatched, but that doesn’t mean Week 2 and onward fail to benefit Michigan sports bettors with promos and bonuses.
Ahead of this Sunday’s games, and before the culmination of the Detroit Lions and their Monday Night Football appearance against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field — here are some of the best specials you can find this weekend.
‘Double Your Money’ if Lions reach the end zone
Oh, yes, the first stop on the tour is a localized one. When Detroit takes on Green Bay, NFL Week 2 promos hit your fandom screen. If the Lions score a touchdown, what was a -1000 odds market has been boosted to an even-money +100 rate at FoxBet Sportsbook.
There’s a maximum of $10 on that bet, though. So, to entice you further, there are boosts on each side of the Monday Night ledger. A T.J. Hockenson first-half touchdown is now at +500, from +425. And a combo of Aaron Rodgers amassing 300 passing yards, Davante Adams hitting 100 receiving yards and a Packers victory is up to +600 from +500.
Consistency matters for PointsBet, DraftKings offers
If you’re wanting to spread your wings and make multiple bets, a pair of top sportsbooks have across-the-board offers on most individual games.
At new Michigan sports betting market leader DraftKings Sportsbook, a 20% profit boost exists for all games in the first two Sunday windows (in other words, all but the MNF game and the Sunday Night Football clash between the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens.) That can turn regularly-juiced spreads into possible plus-money situations. Boosted bets are available up to $50.
And at PointsBet Sportsbook, they are offering “No Juice” games — each team on the spread line at +100 — for all Sunday game through September. And limits are not specified on the promotion, so take your confident picks and have at them with the Australia-based provider.
‘Crunch Time’ for Caesars bet, and jersey giveaway
If you’re wanting to up your unit sizes, a $50 spread bet or more at Caesars Sportsbook on Sunday’s Chicago Bears-Cincinnati Bengals game offers an intriguing twist.
In the final two minutes of either the second or fourth quarter, if the team you bet on scores a field goal, that’s $30 of free bets in your pocket. If the score is a touchdown, then the free bet moves up to $50.
And besides, if you bet $100 or more on qualified NFL games in September, you are eligible for a $150 jersey credit at the NFL Shop. So this possible kick-back promo could get you halfway to that quota on its own.
