  • Visit the BetMGM Michigan website –
  • Click the “Register” button in a white box at the top-right corner of the homepage

  • In the bet slip, choose whether you want to back a straight bet or go for round-robin or parlay options

BetMGM Michigan Sports Betting Section

At first sight, the BetMGM Michigan sports page may seem too crowded with all kinds of information available at the same place. Nevertheless, you will certainly get used to it in no time thanks to a high-profile design, courtesy of niche heavyweights ROAR Digital. 

The menu located at the very top of the site is your main tool. It contains everything you need to get off to a right-footed start at BetMGM Michigan, including the following links: 

  • Home
  • Live Betting
  • NFL
  • College Football
  • College Basketball
  • Easy Parlay
  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • Tennis 
  • Golf
  • MMA
  • Baseball
  • A-Z Sports
  • Favorites
  • Promotions
  • Search
  • My Bets

As you can see, the most popular sports (even including golf) are highlighted there. Other mainstream US leagues like the NBA, NHL, and MLB are also there during the season (taking the place of golf in the main menu for example). 

The center of the page is reserved for live events, while you can find the most exciting upcoming games if you scroll further down. The list of all sports is also available on the left, while the bet slip is available at any time on the right side. We love the “Parlay Generator” feature in the bet slip.  

Variety of Odds

Comparing the odds at BetMGM Michigan with those found at other big Great Lakes State sportsbooks, it is really hard to find a significant difference. The operator’s vig is pretty much at industry-standard connotation, meaning you will usually find the -110 odds offered for either side of the Totals or Spreads markets. 

Now, BetMGM Michigan truly excel when it comes to the massive array of sports and competitions they cover. Of course, professional leagues take the primary spot, but if betting on less popular and minnow competitions is your cup of tea, BetMGM Michigan is an ideal spot for you. The range of sports they cover is one of the widest in the niche. The Great Lakes State residents can thus place wagers on alpine or cross country skiing, volleyball, snooker, handball, and cycling among others. 

The same applies to the number of markets. We will take a regular-season NFL outing between Detroit Lions (local favorites) and Houston Texans as an example. Here are the bets you can place: 

  • Moneyline
  • Spread
  • Totals
  • Quarter Lines
  • Half Lines
  • Half Time/Final Score
  • Touchdown Scorers (First, Anytime, Last)
  • Team Props
  • Player Props
  • Winning Margin
  • Parlays – i.e. Matthew Stafford and Deshaun Watson both to record 2+ passing touchdowns @ +125
  • Highest Scoring Quarter
  • Which Team Will Call the First Timeout

These are only some of the attractive lines that are up for grabs in all NFL (and college football) games. We’d, however, like to warn you that the more exotic the market is, the less favorable the odds will be to you on most occasions. While BetMGM Michigan offer -110 odds on both sides of a regular spread, they will come up with -115 odds for each side of the “Who Will Call the First Timeout” market. It works out the same, both in the range of the market and the odds friendliness) for other sports and competitions. 

Variety of Live Betting Odds

BetMGM Michigan do not only have a premium pre-game betting selection. They are ahead of the competitors in terms of in-play odds as well. It means you can place live wagers on pretty much every significant (and less significant) sporting event across the planet. 

What’s even better is that you can always see how many events per sport are available for live betting at any time. The fans of winter sports will particularly benefit by having a chance to place live wagers on all events throughout the whole course of the season. Obviously, we do not even have to describe the extent to which the mainstream leagues are covered. 

Variety of Livestreaming

The live streaming service follows the exquisite pre-game and in-play markets as BetMGM Michigan secure a broad range of live streams for different sports. While getting the exclusive rights for the most popular US leagues is somewhat tricky for the sportsbooks, BetMGM Michigan do offer one of the best selections in the industry when it comes to this specific area. 

Among others, you can thus watch international and European soccer matches, tennis and table tennis affairs, hockey and basketball games, etc. The only condition is having a funded BetMGM Michigan account (at least $0.01 in it). 

Variety of Promotions

Only rare Great Lakes State sportsbooks host a loyalty program and BetMGM Michigan are one of these. Its presence further boosts the operator’s overall look and appeal. We’ve highlighted some of the most attractive promotions the Michigan residents can highly benefit from here: 

  • M Life Rewards – The operator hosts the same loyalty program like the one you can find at MGM Resorts. You will earn credits for every $100 wagered in straight bets and for every $50 wagered in parlays and round robins 
  • You can see significant boosts on parlays – up to 40%
  • You can receive a bonus bet worth of $10 every single week via the Money Monday Club
