The holiday season is upon us, and Caesars Sportsbook is offering a Michigan online sports betting promotion that will leave NFL fans feeling thankful Thursday.
With the deal, new Michigan customers receive a $100 free bet when their first wager is of at least $10 on the pregame moneyline or point spread of any of the three NFL games Thursday — and the team they back scores at least one point.
Caesars Sportsbook customers can take advantage of the promotion by entering the code “GLSTHX” when opening their new account. Parlays, round robins, teasers and InPlay wagers do not qualify for the promotion.
The $100 free bet will be applied to the customers’ account within two days of Thursday’s games and must be used within seven days of the date it’s applied to an account.

How to Bet the NFL’s Thanksgiving Games
The Thanksgiving trio of games are all single-digit spreads, according to Michigan sportsbooks.
In the matinee between Detroit and Chicago, the Bears are a 3.5-point favorite (-105), with an over/under of 41.5 total points (-110). For those looking to make a moneyline wager, Caesars Sportsbook Michigan currently has the Bears at -175, with the winless Lions at +150 as of Tuesday morning.
And if recent history is any indication, the Lions aren’t a great bet on Thanksgiving Day.
Looking at the Cowboys-Raiders game, the Emperor has Dallas at -8, with an over/under of 50.5. The moneyline is -360 for the Cowboys and +285 for the Raiders.
The nightcap has the Bills at -4.5 (-105), with an over/under of 46.5 and a moneyline of -210 for Buffalo and +175 for New Orleans.
No matter the odds, Caesars Sportsbook is giving customers in Michigan a reason to be joyful on Thanksgiving — from the football field to your phone.
