Top Michigan Online Sportsbooks
Fanduel Sportsbook MI
FanDuel has become a household name in the sports industry during its decade-plus of operation, often linked to its success in daily fantasy sports. However, it also offers one of the most attractive sportsbooks out there.
On that note, FanDuel provides a large list of great betting options for the sports that it carries, which are many. It also has more than enough daily fantasy sports, with a variation of tournament types. It also has a payment method to cater to nearly everyone, with multiple deposit and withdrawal methods.
When you head to FanDuel’s website, you will have the option to choose either its daily fantasy sports section or its sportsbook. You have the luxury of going back and forth, but this requires a separate account on each to use both.
Stepping over to the sportsbook side, FanDuel has a great interface. Someone at FanDuel definitely had the customers in mind when designing this online sportsbook because the ease of navigation puts bets and everything you need right within reach.
You will have no problem finding betting opportunities. FanDuel has a variety of sports you can place wagers on. To increase your betting opportunities, you also have a large number of betting types to choose for each sport (moneylines, totals, parlays, etc.).
Now to the money side of things with deposit methods. FanDuel usually offers multiple options for its users. These range from credit and debit deposits to PayPal, online bank transfers and ACH (e-check).
As far as withdrawal methods, these options are a little less abundant. However, FanDuel still provides a variety: from ACH (e-check) to a check via USPS mail, FanDuel prepaid card and PayPal.
For bonuses and other promotions, it is best to check out the site often as these deals change from time to time. The most common deals, for example, have been daily odds boosts and deposit bonuses.
On the customer service side, FanDuel offers 24/7 responses in a few forms:
DraftKings Sportsbook MI
DraftKings has one of the most attractive sports betting apps among the available mobile betting options in the United States. It also has some of the most compelling offers for sports bettors, such as flash bets.
Flash bets are a newer live betting offering that allows users to place in-game bets between points in a particular matchup. DraftKings, depending on the area, typically has strong sign-up promotions and bonuses, in addition to odds boosts for games daily, parlay insurance and other ongoing features. DraftKings has a high-quality and functional app that provides a good sports bettor experience.
Although DraftKings’ app is user-friendly and reliably fast, it still has a great desktop website. The app has a fairly straightforward structure, making it easy to navigate, and the desktop version is roughly the same.
When it comes to payment methods at DraftKings, users can typically find plenty of options for deposits and withdrawals. Available deposit methods include your bank account, credit card or PayPal.
You will have cash in your account in a day or two after withdrawing, assuming no issues on either end of the process. DraftKings is a known brand that is a trusted and reliable sportsbook for registering and payment options. So you can sign up knowing you are in good hands with whatever you want to bet on the site.
DraftKings arguably is getting better each day for its guests. This is due to its increased market share across the US and the quality of incentives it offers.
FOX Bet Sportsbook MI
FOX Bet, as you may have guessed, is owned by the very same FOX Corp. that has broadcasting networks to provide coverage of sports all over the United States. FOX Bet’s online sportsbook is in the following states at the moment, with more to come: Colorado, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
In May 2019, FOX teamed up with The Stars Group (now part of Flutter Entertainment) to launch FOX Bet.
Looking at sports betting opportunities, FOX Bet has a wide variety of sports to wager on, and each sport has just about every option out there for a bettor.
If you are on your mobile device, you will find that the website will ask you to download the FOX Bet app if you do not have an account. If you are navigating on the desktop version, you can still make an account and download the app later. Both are excellent interfaces.
FOX Bet offers its customers a plethora of deposit options. These range from PayPal to online banking and the use of credit or debit cards. Another option available via FOX Bet’s partnerships is the PokerStars Play+ card.
Looking at withdrawal methods, you will see almost as many options. These range from PayPal to a land-based partner casino’s cage, and even sending it to your PokerStars Play+ card.
Some other unique features that you should check out that FOX Bet uses are its boosts and custom bets. Below are three options:
With Bet Boosts, it offers you attractive odds on select events every single day, allowing you the opportunity to win an even larger amount of money than you would have normally. You will also see FOX Sports personalities give out these boosts as a way to promote them for the day.
Super Boosts are available each week and provide an incentive for bettors to watch for them. This is because they can provide an even greater opportunity if you use them often.
For custom bets, you can tweet out your request for your homemade proposition bet. Simply use #CustomBet, and it might even be featured on the FOX Bet site.
PointsBet Sportsbook MI
PointsBet has a lot to like, as it attracts many new users. Even though the amount of content could overwhelm new customers, it has a lot of features in place to help new people out.
Users will see all standard types of traditional bets and player prop bets, as well as the bread and butter spreads, totals, moneylines and many other varieties.
PointsBet offers a vast selection of bets, and in addition to these bread and butter wagering options, it also has a feature called PointsBetting.
This potential game-changer, PointsBetting, is the main thing setting this sportsbook apart, since no other sportsbook offers this.
The PointsBetting process will have a spread, total or prop bet, and then change it into a variable type of bet, so to speak, that will last the duration of the event you are betting on. So, for this situation, odds will be boosted, and the more correct you are, the more money you win. However, the same applies to how wrong you are when you lose, so watch your bankroll.
Bettors will see that they have the opportunity to bet on a variety of sports. This means you can find international leagues, so bets will range from leagues like the NFL to overseas offerings like the Swedish Hockey League.
PointsBet regularly tries to update its odds and events, so as a result the customers are able to wager on certain seasonal events with the best odds available. Such events could include everything surrounding NBA All-Star weekend or the MLB Home Run Derby, for example.
PointsBet even has its own branded Mastercard as a payment method. It has other options of payment methods that users will be familiar with on their deposits and withdrawals.
The popular ones are ACH (e-check) or a debit/credit card. PayPal has been added and is a great option, as well.
PointsBet has an app for iOS and Android devices that functions quite well. The app itself is not the most attractive one out there, but it gets the job done. If you do not want to use it, you can always use the desktop version.
PointsBet offers a blog and a section dedicated to educating its users on a variety of topics. This includes safe betting practices, how-to videos and exploring the betting options on the site.
