Betting On Michigan Teams With DraftKings Michigan Promo Code
Both Michigan State and Michigan (by the skin of their maize and blue teeth) are competing in the NCAA Tournament. Those are the only two teams from the Mitten State in the tournament. Here is a closer look at their first-round match-ups.
No. 11 Michigan vs. No. 6 Colorado State, Thursday, 12:15 p.m. ET
The Wolverines went out of the Big Ten Tournament with a whimper, losing to Indiana after blowing a double-digit lead. Should Michigan win its opening game against Davidson, it would face the winner of the Tennessee-Longwood game in the second round on Saturday.
No. 7 Michigan State vs. No. 10 Davidson, Friday, 9:40 p.m. ET
This is coach Tom Izzo’s 24th consecutive tournament appearance, but the Spartans are not expected to go far according to experts. In fact, if MSU defeats the Rams, it would most likely meet No. 2 seed Duke in the round of 32 on Sunday.

Other Games To Consider
To be a winner with the DraftKings Michigan Promo, your team does not need to cover the point spread. It simply has to win the game. A blowout or a buzzer-beater — it’s all the same, and your $5 winning bet will get you that $200 in free betting credit.
- No. 1 overall seed Gonzaga is a 23.5-point favorite against Georgia State. No. 16 seeds are 1-143 against No. 1 seeds in tournament history, with only 15 games between a No. 1 seed and a No. 16 seed being decided by 10 points or less.
- Duke is heavily favored against Cal-State Fullerton despite looking sluggish and losing in the ACC Tournament final.
- Kentucky is favored by at least 17 points over St. Peter’s as of early Monday evening. St. Peter’s (19-11) got into the NCAA Tournament by winning the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament. This is the first time St. Peter’s will face Kentucky, and it probably won’t be something it wants to remember.
- Purdue lost to Michigan and Michigan State this season and failed to capture the Big Ten Tournament on Sunday, but the Boilermakers are still one of the best teams in the country. They face Yale on Friday as a No. 3 seed and should dispatch the Ivy Leaguers easily.
- On Friday night in a late game, the No. 1 seed Kansas Jayhawks will play the winner of a play-in game. We don’t know what the point spread for that game will be yet, but it’s bound to be big in favor of Kansas. This game is a perfect choice to ensure that your $5 moneyline wager wins $200 in free bets from DraftKings.
