Even when they’re winning these days, the Detroit Pistons can be a frustrating bunch. But worry not, Michigan sports bettors. A near-sure-thing DraftKings Sportsbook Pistons promo can add to your bankroll this weekend and give you reasons to cheer.
Yes, the season of MI sports betting bonuses continues past March Madness into the spring. The latest offering is a $25 cash-in opportunity for Saturday night’s NBA game between Detroit and the Washington Wizards.
Here’s the scoop.
‘Hammer the Over,’ win $25 from DraftKings
The act itself is easy. Log on to DraftKings (or register, if you haven’t already) and seek out the “Hammer the Over” promotion. Be sure to select that particular bet, which should have odds boosted from -10000 to +100.
You can place up to $25 on the point total for the game going over. For every 400 users who place the bet, DraftKings says it will drop the promotional total by a point. As of Saturday near tip-off, that mark was at 73 points and couldy drop further.
Come Saturday night, you’re almost certain to have that bet cash. And you’ll have a little extra money to play with over the weekend.
Stay on the promo hunt in Michigan
Scroll through the Michigan sports betting apps long enough, and you’ve likely seen bonus offers like this DraftKings Sportsbook Pistons promo before.
We’ve talked about quite a few of them at PlayMichigan, across different sports and several operators.
Before Michigan State basketball bowed out in the NCAA Tournament‘s First Four, you could get the Spartans to cover an easy spread number and net $50 through FanDuel against eventual Final Four participant UCLA.
Leading up to Major League Baseball’s Opening Day, PointsBet offered the Detroit Tigers at a preposterous run line to get you $20.
In other Pistons offerings, Fox Bet was essentially giving away $10 to users when Detroit scored its first basket against the Brooklyn Nets last month. (Blake Griffin was making his return to town.)
None of these offers will make you rich. But they give you insulation as you go through your daily bets.
Detroit Pistons in tight race for NBA’s worst record
There’s still that whole “frustrating when they’re winning” loop to close, too, isn’t there?
Detroit has quietly won four of its past nine games to move to 16-38 on the season with 18 games remaining, entering Wednesday’s test against the Los Angeles Clippers.
With the NBA playoffs as essentially a pipe dream, the focus goes to potential draft lottery positioning.
Detroit still possesses the worst record in the Eastern Conference at the 75% mark of this regular season, but only by a game over the Orlando Magic (17-37). And two Western Conference teams — the Houston Rockets (14-40) and Minnesota Timberwolves (14-41) — are both worse than the Pistons.
So the battle for those precious June ping-pong balls remains tight.
