BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION, Explained
This bet is a ‘win-win’ per se because in the case of a loss, you’re getting the value of the promotion. A win will get you the normal payout.
Selecting a Bet: Nets-Knicks
After shocking the basketball world with a 109-94 triumph over the Celtics on Monday, the Knicks have proven their legitimacy. They’ve extended their win streak to six games and improved their net rating to +2.7, which is No. 7 overall.
Holding the league’s arguable most dynamic offense to 94 points is nothing to scoff at. And that shows with a defensive rating of 113.2. The Knicks swarmed Jason Tatum, limiting him to 14 points, seven rebounds and nine assists. The Celtics — one of the NBA’s elite 3-point shooting teams — couldn’t get anything going beyond the arc, going 9-for-42.
Julius Randle has been the messiah of this Knicks revival. He’s averaged 28.5 points through the win streak, including a double-double against the rudderless Nets. Randle has posted 20.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists.
The Nets will play a back-to-back after dropping a 118-104 loss to another formidable opponent Tuesday in the Bucks. In the six games that Mikal Bridges has played for Brooklyn, he’s spearheaded the team with 23.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists — despite the Nets going 1-5 in that span.
It’s clear how much the Nets used to rely on Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving’s output, which propelled them to their current standing amongst the East. It also doesn’t help that Ben Simmons remains out of the lineup.
Brooklyn is 5-5 ATS on no rest, while the Knicks have posted a 14-6-3 mark at home ATS. The home team has won and covered in all three meetings previous.
The Pick: Randle to record a double-double
So how does this settle? With a $1,000 bet placed on the Randle prop at +115, we would either see the $2,150 payout and the promotion isn’t needed. Or, we lose the bet and get $1,000 back in bonus bets.
How to Use BetMGM Bonus Bets
This is like any other bet, except you won’t keep the bonus bets after using them — even if you win with them.
Say we want to use $100 of the $1,000 on Pelicans-Trail Blazers at 10 p.m. Tyler Schmidt advised on the under in his game preview:
With the Pelicans’ offensive struggles recently and the Trail Blazers having a one-player team at the moment, taking the game total under 232.5 points is the best way to attack this matchup. Lillard can easily go for 50+ points against any team, but with no sidekick, the Trail Blazers will have a tough time scoring.
The under has hit in five consecutive matchups with the Trail Blazers and Pelicans, and I will bet on that trend continuing tonight. There are too many key players missing from both teams, so expect more of a defensive battle in this spot tonight. I would bet this under all the way down to 229.5 points.
Since the line is -110 for the total, let’s add the Blazers -1.5 and Damien Lillard to score 35 or more for a three-leg parlay odds total of +425.
This would either get us a $425 (not $525 since we don’t hold on to the stake) payout or we lose the $100 without any profit.
Keep in mind, your bet credits must be used within seven days of being credited to your account. So you’ll want to use them when you can.
Quick Tip: Follow Sharp Action
The bettors who have a renowned history of winning are the people’s bets you’ll want to consider. You can identify sharp action by finding where Reverse Line Movement is. This is when the line moves in the opposite direction of the betting percentages. Action’s PRO Report helps examine these signs.
So, let’s say the Celtics are getting 80% of spread bets, yet you see them fall from -8 to -7. Oddsmakers would only drop the line to give public Celtics bettors a better number because sharp professional bettors influenced them by hitting the opponent. In turn, the line fell.
