BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION1100 Earns $1,100 for NCAA First Four on Tuesday

BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION1100 Earns $1,100 for NCAA First Four on Tuesday article feature image

The early taste of March Madness begins on Tuesday with a pair of First Four matchups that players can use BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION1100 on for for a $1,100 first bet on the house.

BetMGM will return the amount of your first bet up to $1,100 in bonus bets if your first bet loses.

For those is the newly-live state of Massachusetts, you can use bonus code TOPACTION for a $1,000 first bet.

In select states including Massachusetts, you can use the BetMGM bonus code ACTIONPOINT. You receive $200 in bonus bets if you bet $10 on any NBA team on the moneyline and they score 1+ point.

Let’s get down to business with some First Four examples between SE Missouri-Texas A&M Corpus Christi and Pittsburgh-Mississippi State. We’ve also provided a state-by-state grid of BetMGM Sportsbook offers.

How to Get Bonus Bets: Tuesday’s BetMGM Promotion

In this case, we’ll only have bonus bets if our first bet loses.

SE Missouri-Texas A&M Corpus Christi is the first game on the docket at 6:40 p.m. ET. The market is favoring Texas A&M CC by 3.5 and BetMGM has SE Missouri tabbed as +145 underdogs — a market-best price.

Since we can place any amount up to $1,100 to activate this promotion, we advise dumping your bankroll into this bet. It will be all the more value coming back if you lose.

This obviously depends on your unit size, so bet whatever you can afford.

For example’s sake, say I were to place $1,100 on the Redhawks to claim the 16 seed in the South bracket region with a victory over the Islanders Tuesday.

  • A Redhawks victory would net $1,595 and a payout of $2,695. The promotion is now over.
  • A Redhawks loss would return $1,100 in bonus bets.

In the case of a Redhawks loss, we’ll have the bonus bets ready to use as soon as the Pittsburgh-Mississippi State game rolls around at 9:10 p.m. ET.

Check out our +EV betting guide for insight on why betting longshots will benefit your return in the long haul — especially when using bonus bets.

Mississippi State has 2.5 points on the spread while Pittsburgh has a price of +115 at BetMGM heading into tipoff.

Since these First Four matchups are matched too evenly, we’re not going to find the longshot we’re quite looking for. Let’s create a same game parlay and combine Pittsburgh moneyline with over 132.5 points for +302 odds.

We can break bonus bets up. So let’s say I place $100 on this SGP.

  • If the Panthers win and the point total exceeds 132.5, I net $302 back.
  • If one or neither of those legs miss, I profit zero.

First Four Expert Matchup Analysis

Our college basketball experts dove into both Tuesday’s play-in games to elaborate on how they’re betting:

  • Missouri-Texas A&M Corpus Christi: Jim Root on betting o154

The way TAMU-CC’s other players stepped up in Murdix’s absence stands out, though. Jalen Jackson and Trevian Tennyson made multiple big plays in the backcourt, and freshman Owen Dease — a stretchy 6-foot-8 ‘tweener — provided a much-needed offensive boost.

Given the Islanders’ experience in this setting — plus their elite free-throw shooting — I lean heavily towards the favorite.

I prefer the total, though. It seems inevitable that this game will have 50+ free-throw attempts, which obviously amps up efficiency. SEMO will do everything it can to push the pace, and even without Murdix, TAMU-CC should be willing to run.

Remember: the Islanders played a 78-possession game with Texas Southern in this spot last season.

I was able to get 152.5, but the market is currently at 154. I would bet it up to 156.


The historical evidence certainly points that way; per BetLabs, teams that lost by more than 20 points in their prior game entering the NCAA tournament are 21-12 against the number dating back to 2007 (a similar angle holds for NC State against Creighton).

This alone, however, does not warrant a blind bet on Pitt, especially against a coach as shrewd as Jans on the other sidelines.

The better value play here is on the total. The strong shooting regression angles for Mississippi State offer a modicum of value on the over, as does the interior matchup on both sides.

Pitt’s bigs can stretch Mississippi State away from the rim, while the Bulldogs can do their dirty work around the glass.

In short, an efficiency-driven over is the play here, but don’t chase anything higher than 133.
