As the Baltimore Ravens strap up for Monday Night Football, $10 million is up for grabs with Monday Night Millions.

It’s the latest offering from Caesars Sportsbook, one of the most active Virginia sportsbooks when it comes to unique promotions.

Sure, winning that $10 million top prize is a long shot of epic proportions. However, Caesars has many other, more-attainable bounties as part of the promotion, which runs throughout the entire 2021 NFL season.

And best of all? You’ll make your first contest pick as part of tonight’s MNF game, where the Ravens heads to Sin City to meet the Las Vegas Raiders in the season’s first Monday-night showdown.

About the Monday Night Millions contest

You could win $10 million as part of Monday Night Millions. Yes, it’s possible.

However, you’re going to need to put together one massive winning streak.

Here’s the basic rundown of the contest so you know how it works:

  • Bet $10 or more (max $100) on the pre-game Monday Night Millions spread for either team.
  • Make picks for all 17 Monday Night Football games, as well as:
    • 1 Wild Card Round game (the one with the last kickoff date/time)
    • 1 Divisional Round game
    • A Conference Championship game
    • Super Bowl LVI
  • You get one pick per game, and you have to make it from the special Monday Night Millions page.

If you go 21-for-21 with your picks, you win $10 million.

Of course, the odds of picking all 21 games correctly and winning the Monday Night Millions $10 million grand prize is about 1 in 2.1 million. So yes, it’s going to take a pretty magical run of luck to go 21-for-21.

If, somehow, multiple winners pull off the feat, they’ll split the $10 million.

However, there are other ways to win.

Other ways to win Monday Night Millions

As part of Monday Night Millions, you can also try to become the king of Virginia. Virginia sports betting, anyway.

The contest participant who wins the most bets in Virginia will win a $250,000 grand prize. Like the $10 million grand prize, if there’s a tie for the lead, those customers will split the prize.

However, you can also win free bets simply by stringing together some winning streaks in the contest.

They include:

  • 4 straight wins: $50 free bet
  • 8 straight wins: $500 free bet
  • 12 straight wins: $5,000 free bet

Be sure to check the Caesars website or mobile app to read the full rules.

Ravens vs. Raiders on MNF

As of Monday morning, Caesars hadn’t posted the spread for the Monday Night Millions market.

In the regular NFL section, though, the Ravens are 4-point favorites over the Raiders.

In addition to the -4 spread for Baltimore, the total for the game was 50.5.

The betting public has sided with the Ravens, and wagering on the over-under has been fairly balanced.

The Ravens are stocked in 2021 with quarterback Lamar Jackson, cornerback Marlon Humphrey, and offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley – all of whom are on lists of the top 100 of 2021 NFL players.

Now, they head to Vegas as road favorites, a fairly uncommon situation in the NFL, where home-field advantage is crucial. However, it’s perhaps no surprise that oddsmakers and bettors like the Ravens in this Week 1 matchup.

After all, expectations are also big for Baltimore’s entire season. At Caesars, the Ravens are currently +1500 to win the Super Bowl. Those are the seventh-best odds out of the NFL’s 32 franchises.

They’re also +650 to win the AFC and +125 to win the AFC North.
