Online sports betting will be legal in Michigan starting Friday at noon! Bettors in the Wolverine State will now be able to legally wager on their favorite teams like the Red Wings, Pistons, Tigers and Lions from the comfort of their couches.
Of course, sports bettors in Michigan can broaden their betting horizons by wagering on non-local teams as well. This year’s Super Bowl is a great place to start for a novice bettor considering the variety of wagers that are available each year.
Best Michigan Sportsbook Apps to wager on the Super Bowl
Betting on the Super Bowl in the state of Michigan is easy. All you have to do is sign up at one of the following sportsbooks:
- Sign up at DraftKings Sportsbook here
- Sign up at FanDuel Sportsbook here
- Sign up at BetMGM here
- Sign up at BetRivers here
- Sign up at FOX Bet here
- Sign up at PointsBet here
Each of these sportsbooks are giving away free bonus money upon sign-up so be sure to “Opt-in” to take advantage of these deals.
Registration for each sportsbook should only take 3-4 minutes of your time. You will need to provide some information, such as:
- Date of birth
- Last four digits of your social security number
- Mailing address
- Email address
Some books may also ask you to upload a picture of your driver’s license or other ID to verify you are who you say you are.
You will also need to deposit funds into your account to take advantage of each sportsbook’s bonus offer and so that you can immediately bet.
Once you are registered, you can go to the main menu of the sportsbook you chose. There should be several individual sports tabs you can click on. Most books break it down by both sport – in this case, “football” – and by league – in this case, “NFL.”
If you click on “more wagers,” you will get a plethora of prop options. Here are some examples of what these props could look like given a hypothetical Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers:
- Patrick Mahomes to throw for Over or Under 310 yards
- Tyreek Hill to score the first TD: +500
- Player to have most passing yards: Patrick Mahomes -225 or Aaron Rodgers +175
