Detroit LionsThe Detroit Lions seem to be expanding their MI sports betting partnerships. On Thursday, Lions announced a multi-year contract with WynnBET. This is the second sports betting deal for the Detroit Lions. The team officially announced BetMGM Sportsbook as its first sports wagering partner in September 2020. According to the latest deal, WynnBET is designated as an official gaming partner and sportsbook for NFL betting. Additionally, Ford Field will also be launching the latest WynnBET Sports Bar that will open the season for fans above 21 years of age. 

The latest sports bar will exhibit WynnBET branding and will be situated in close proximity to section 222. Along with Lions games, the region will also be opening to other prominent Ford Field events. Furthermore, WynnBET will also be provided with a myriad of digital and traditional media assets. This sports betting brand will be touted on the social media account, mobile app, regular-season pregame TV programming, preseason TV broadcasts, and in-game radio broadcasts of Lions. 

Prizes To the WynnBET Fans 

Along with a new sports bar and branding in Ford Field, WynnBET will also be hosting special giveaways and games for fans. The news statement also revealed that WynnBET would be presenting a “Free to Play” sponsor game on the mobile app. These games include exciting prizes including Lions season tickets, single-game tickets, Wynn Las Vegas, free bets in the WynnBET app, and Lions shop credit card. 

Fans will certainly witness a massive WynnBET presence at the Ford Field on every gameday. They will get the opportunity to win prizes at the pregame festivities of the Lions Pride Plaza situated on Brush Street outside the Gate A entrance of the stadium. 

WynnBET Michigan Sports Betting 

WynnBET is among the first operators to make a debut in Michigan after it officially legalized online sports betting as well as internet casino gaming this year in January. However, contrary to other sportsbooks, WynnBET is yet to acquire a substantial share of Michigan’s online sports betting market. During the month of May, WynnBET has merely managed to record the 10th highest handle out of the 12 sportsbooks collecting $7.1 million. On the other hand, the overall handle of FanDuel sportsbooks at this point stands at $372.4 million. WynnBET managed to access the Michigan market through its collaboration with the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. Moreover, the Detroit Pistons and WynnBET, in March, announced a multi-year agreement for NBA betting. 

Lions Standing At Low Expectations 

Sportsbook has scheduled long futures odds for the Lions. This is evident with Dan Campell, the first-year head coach taking over a team rebuilding project and the absence of Matthew Stafford, the former quarterback. The state’s over-under win of 4.5 stands at the second-lowest in the entire league, closely edging the Texans. The Texans and Lions are at a tie for the worst odds at Super Bowl odds at +20000. 

From September to January, it is going to be an interesting time as we witness which team will claim the largest chunk of the online sports betting market of Michigan.
