BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION Scores $1,000 Offer for Tuesday NBA Games article feature image

The No. 7 seed is on the line in both NBA conferences Tuesday night, as TNT’s doubleheader of Hawks-Heat and Timberwolves-Lakers will feature a taste of playoff basketball and BetMGM bonus codeTOPACTION can be utilized to activate a $1,000 first bet on the house.

It doesn’t have to be $1,000 — it can be any amount up to that. So if I bet $100 on the Hawks to cover against the Heat at 5.5, I would get $100 in bonus bets back if I lose. A win would simply secure my payout and the promotion is effectively over.

You can use this bet in all BetMGM Sportsbook states except New York and Washington D.C.

You can also use BetMGM bonus code ACTIONPOINT for $200 in bonus bets when you wager $10 on any NBA moneyline. This offer is available in Massachusetts, Ohio, Maryland, Louisiana, Kansas and Illinois.

BetMGM Bonus Bets, Explained 

For those seeking to familiarize themselves before dipping their toes into sports betting, we compiled our top 12 sports betting tips and a how-to guide for reading American odds. Also, if you’ve never bet with a sportsbook promotion before, we did a complete breakdown of the different types of bonuses.

OK, so in the case you lose the first bet on the house, you’ll have $1,000 (or whatever amount you bet) in bonus bets to use.

Bonus bets must be used within seven days of being credited to your account. Once these are bet with, they are not kept after the bet is over. You don’t have to bet them all at once as they can split them into their own increments.

We tell readers to make plus-money wagers with your bonus bets. You’re getting much more expected value, since you don’t keep the initial stake. Don’t believe us? Check out the math in our +EV betting guide. You’ll understand that the lower the implied probability of your bet, the better value long term.

A wonderful way to find a good line is either betting on props or creating a parlay. Let’s do both in this scenario using a couple of our NBA expert best bets for Tuesday’s doubleheader:

  • Alex Hinton explains why Jimmy Butler’s 3-point shooting has been trending and the Hawks present a good matchup for him to sink at least one at -120:

Last postseason, Butler averaged 27.4 points per game and very nearly willed Miami into the NBA Finals for the second time in three years. In 17 postseason games, he made one 3-pointer in 14 games. He made one 3-pointer in all four games against Atlanta in last year’s first round matchup.

Butler averaged 1.4 3s on 4.8 attempts in last year’s postseason. In the regular season, he averaged 0.6 3s on 1.7 attempts. In general, Butler’s volume goes up in the playoffs. Last year, he averaged nearly five more field goal attempts per game in the playoffs compared to the regular season despite playing just four more minutes per game. I expect similar volume from Butler tonight and at least one 3-point make.

  • Hinton also preaches that due to the absences of Rudy Golbert and Jaden McDaniels tonight, Anthony Edwards should see extra possessions for the over of 11.5 rebounds and assists at +100 odds:

Without McDaniels and Gobert, Minnesota will be without about 16 rebounds per game. Given that Edwards is one of the better rebounding guards in the league, I would expect him to grab some of them. You can take his rebounds (7.5) if you’d prefer, however Edwards is a good bet to facilitate as well.

Additionally, in his last 10 games without Rudy Gobert, he has gone over this line in seven of those games. Edwards will be facing a Lakers team that ranked fourth in pace in the regular season. While the game does slow down with the playoffs on the line, the pace in this game should give Edwards a few extra possessions to record 12 rebounds and assists.

Together, these two props make up a parlay of +267 odds. In the case where we had $1,000 in bonus bets following the first bet on the house and used $100 on this parlay, here’s what our account would look in either result.

Quick Tip: 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 Heat are getting 80% of spread bets, yet you see them fall from -6.5 to -5.5. Oddsmakers would only drop the line to give public Heat bettors a better number because sharp professional bettors influenced them by hitting the opponent and therefore the line dropped.

Signing Up at BetMGM

BetMGM has a few things you should know before you get started.

  1. You must be 21+ years old to register and bet
  2. You must be located in a BetMGM state when placing your first wager. You don’t have to live in Ohio to wager, you just 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 the Super Bowl, you could withdraw in your home state next Monday).
  3. You must have access to a valid deposit method. Credit card, bank account transfer and PayPal are the most popular, though some credit cards will flag gambling and not allow you to deposit.
