For this first football weekend of December, FOX Bet Michigan is offering several promos for fans in the state. Each of these offers is available to any FOX Bet user with an account either through the sportsbook app or the website.
The highlight is one Wolverines fans won’t be able to pass up before they sit down to watch Michigan take on Iowa in the Big Ten Championship game. Let’s take a closer look at all of this weekend’s sports betting offers from FOX Bet Michigan.
Michigan Vs. Iowa, Saturday, 8 p.m. ET
Michigan To Win (+100) — Max Bet $10
The Wolverines are coming off their biggest win in more than two decades, and they’ve finally shed some of the “can’t beat good teams” stigma that’s hounded them under coach Jim Harbaugh. This game in Indianapolis will determine the champion of the Big Ten, something U of M used to contend for every year back when coaches Lloyd Carr and Bo Schembechler were roaming the sidelines. The Hawkeyes are currently listed as at least 10-point underdogs by every sportsbook.
There are odds boosts, and then there is THIS odds boost. It will be hard to find a Michigan moneyline price better than -400 this week, and FOX Bet is offering +100. The hungover Maize and Blue will probably keep this game close for too long, but look for their advantage up front to wear down Iowa. Michigan will pull away in the second half and win their first outright conference title since 2003.
Georgia Vs. Alabama, Saturday 4 p.m. ET
Both Teams To Score Points In Every Quarter (+700) — Max Bet $50
The Bulldogs and Crimson Tide meet to decide the SEC championship for the first time since 2012 when No. 2 Alabama defeated No. 3 Georgia. This time is undefeated and ranked No. 1.
Since he took over at Alabama, coach Nick Saban has defeated Georgia in six of seven meetings. Three times he took a lower-ranked Bama team and beat the Bulldogs. Saban’s record against ranked schools is unbelievable (38-6 since 2015). This Saturday he should knock off the No. 1 team in the nation, once again proving he’s the greatest college football coach in history. Take the Crimson Tide to win this game, but Georgia struggles to score against talented teams, and they will not reach pay dirt often enough to deliver on this promo offer.
Detroit Lions Vs. Minnesota Vikings, Sunday 1 p.m. ET
Lions To Score A TD In Each Half (+100) — Max Bet $25
The Lions are looking for their first win, and if there’s a patsy out there who can choke against Detroit, it might be the Vikings. In their first meeting in October, the Vikings escaped with a 19-17 victory on a final-second field goal. Minnesota’s offense is solid, but that defense is atrocious, and we may end up seeing another ugly game between these two teams, akin to the tie that Detroit played against the Steelers in November. Keep the clicker close, so you can flip to a game that will feature good football.
Remember when the Vikings were a defensive juggernaut? Well, that’s not the case anymore. Minnesota ranks 30th out of 32 NFL teams in rush defense. That means the Lions will find the end zone on the ground, and this bet is a no-brainer.
Philadelphia Eagles Vs. New York Jets, Sunday 1 p.m. ET
Philadelphia Eagles to Score 2+ Rushing TDs (+100) —Max Bet $50
Philadelphia QB Jalen Hurts is coming off his worst game of the season in last weekend’s loss to the New York Giants, and he is possibly injured after suffering a sprained ankle. He’s the key to the Philly offense, but thankfully this matchup against the Jets looks like a chance to reset his performance. The Jets stink against the run, they stink against the pass, they stink running and passing the ball on offense, and they have the worst turnover differential in the NFL. Somehow they’ve managed to win three games, but don’t expect a fourth on Sunday in the Battle of the Greens.
Two weeks ago, Hurts rushed for three TDs against the Saints. His running scores have come in bunches and he’s basically the best “running back” the Eagles have, so it’s a risk to go for this Double Your Money bet, even against the Jets, who struggle to stop the running game.
NFL Player Prop
Jonathan Taylor, Austin Ekeler & Leonard Fournette All To Score TDs (+400) — Max Bet $25
This running back prop bet is worth the gamble. All three ball carriers are healthy and having good seasons. They all have decent matchups, too.
