BetMGM Bonus Code Gets $200 in Free Bets for Thursday Night Football

BetMGM Bonus Code Gets $200 in Free Bets for Thursday Night Football article feature image

BetMGM bonus code ACTIONYARD or ACTIONNHL will both get users $200 in free bets, though the offers are in different sports and states.

  • ACTIONYARD gets new users (Kansas, Illinois, Louisiana only) $200 in free bets if the football team they bet gets at least 1 passing yard.
  • ACTIONNHL gets new users $200 in free bets if there's one goal scored in an NHL game they bet.

Both these bonus codes are better than a $1,000 risk-free bet from BetMGM, so take advantage even if you're not a hockey fan.

Here are the codes to use in each state. Then we'll explain how to use your free bets and how to get them.

How to Get the Free Bets

This ACTIONNHL and ACTIONYARD offers are better than the $1,000 risk-free bet, so grab these now while they're still live. They won't last forever.

These offers work almost exactly the same:

  • Bet $10 on an NHL game, and if there's a goal scored, you'll get $200 in free bets — returned in the form of four, $50 increments. It doesn't matter if you don't like hockey, you just want to maximize the value of the free-bet offers that sportsbooks are giving you. Let's say you bet $10 on the Rangers at +120 against the Wild.
  • Bet $10 on BearsCommanders, get $200 in free bets if the team you bet gets at least one passing yard.

You'll then be free to use those free bets on any sport or event you'd like — soccer, hockey, baseball, CFB, etc.

How Free Bets Work

OK, so how do free bets work exactly? They're almost like cash, but you must wager them before you can withdraw them.

Say you bet $10 on the Bears moneyline on Thursday Night Football to claim the free bets. As long as there's one passing yard (I know, I know, Justin Fields will throw for a passing yard, I promise), you'll get the $200 in free bets.

Then once you're armed with $200, you can wager them on anything you'd like.

One of our predictive analysts, Nick Giffen, likes the Broncos +5 due to the discrepancy in his luck ratings.

This game has the biggest luck discrepancy in terms of raw ranking difference between these two teams.

The 18-place difference puts this game over the 15 mark which is significant. Unlucky teams that are at least 16 places more unlucky than their opponent are 13-2 ATS since Week 3 when we started tracking results.

Additionally, if we look at the W% Diff column, we can see the Chargers have been 31.2% more lucky than the Broncos. This “Luck Gap” again is the biggest of the week.That’s important because the unlucky team with a Luck Gap of 25% or more has gone 19-6 ATS.My colleague Brandon Anderson lists several other reasons why you should back the Broncos, which you can check out here.

Fortunately, you don't need to use the free bets all at once. You'll get four, $50 free bets back. But for the example, it's easiest if we pretend you do.

  • So if the Broncos covers the spread, you'll win $181 off the $200 in free bets. You now have $181 in your account, plus your original deposit.
  • If Denver doesn't cover, you lose the free bets and they're gone.
