BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION Scoops Up to $1.5K Bonus Value for Friday CFB, Any Sport
Week 3 of Friday Night Lights features three games — all of which can be bet with up to $1,500 and your potential losses will be matched in bonus bets by using BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION.
We'll explain more about how what we call a first bet on the house works below, but you will get value back win or lose with this offer. It can be used on any Friday event listed by BetMGM.
If the first bet on the house isn't what you're seeking, use BetMGM bonus code ACTIONGET for $200 bonus bets back following a $10 bet. You could place $10 on Army ML against UTSA at +240 and if they prevail, you get the $34 payout and $200 bonus value. In the case UTSA wins, you still have the $200.
And those in Kentucky patiently waiting for September 28 to arrive, you can also use BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION, to score $100 ready to use on launch day.
OK, the first kickoff is Virginia-Maryland and Army-UTSA at 7 p.m. ET. Utah State-Air Force follows at 8 p.m. ET. We can use these games to walk through how the first bet on the house will operate and exemplify our expert Friday night bonus betting pick below.
Signing Up at BetMGM
BetMGM has a few things you should know before you get started.
- You must be 21+ years old to register and bet.
- You must be located in a BetMGM state when placing your first wager. You don’t have to live in Ohio to wager; you have to be in the state at the time of activation and making a bet. Check out our travel betting guide for more details. You can withdraw money once you’ve already left the state (so if you were in Ohio on Monday and bet on the Super Bowl, you could withdraw in your home state next Monday).
- You must have access to a valid deposit method. Credit cards, bank account transfers, and PayPal are the most popular, though some credit cards will flag gambling and not allow you to deposit.
If you're in New York or Washington D.C., you will not have access to either of the above offers.
BetMGM Promo Code Guide: Week 3 CFB Friday
The First Bet on the House
This is an opportunity to wager as much as you can with the fail-safe of BetMGM reimbursing potential losses. So let's imagine you deposit the maximum $1,500 for this offer and place it all on the Under of 45.5 points for Army-UTSA.
Both of these offenses aren't prone to to putting up points. Here's why:
UTSA’s offensive struggles have been pronounced, but the defense has kept it on track. Army has shown a similar profile, carrying over its 2022 characteristics to this season.
I think we see these teams play a slow game in which each side grinds out yardage. Ultimately, I think UTSA will come out victorious and possibly cover this spread as well, but my favorite bet is on the total.
With the number at 45.5, I would take the under. UTSA’s defense matches up well with what Army will want to do on the ground, and the Black Knights defense will be able to take advantage of the Roadrunners’ offensive struggles.
We would see a payout of $2,863.64 if the Under hits. The offer would be over in that case, but if the bet misses and the total goes over, it kicks in and we have $1,500 in bonus bets.
Profiting With Bonus Bets
So we have $1,500 in bonus value that we can split up.
When using bonus bets at any sportsbook, we advise to shoot for tight markets between +300 and +500. A tight market is one in which both sides are close together (+300 on the underdog and -400 on the favorite).
The sports book takes accountability on their price by offering the other side of the plus-money bet. In a prop example, if they offer a +1500 player prop with real probability of +3000, there is no edge despite the plus-value. So look for lines that are best-in-market. You can use our NCAAF odds page to shop.
Bonus bets hit your account after the bet settles, but in this case, let's imagine we have them ready for 7 p.m. ET on Friday.
We'll place $100 in bonus bets on Virginia +460. Its offense should be high octane enough through the air to contend with Maryland:
Maryland should be squarely in control of this matchup with its drastic edge on the offensive side of the ball. However, that doesn't mean the Cavaliers won't try to fight back.
Virginia found great success last week in the passing game after going down early against JMU. With a similar game script expected for this matchup, it won't be surprising to see the Hoos get it going through the air once again.
We would see $460 in winnings if the Cavs come away with it. if the Terps win, we have $0 and the stake is gone in either case.
