BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION Banks up to $1K of Value for Scottish Open, Any Saturday Sport article feature image

Rory McIlroy has never won the Scottish Open before, but he heads into Saturday's round with a one-stroke lead at -10. With a tight field of competitors behind him including Scottie Scheffler at -7 and Rickie Fowler at -6, there's plenty of value to score using BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION for up to $1,000 in bet return value.

In other words, you can place a first bet on the house of any amount up to $1,000 and if it doesn't succeed, you will get your stake back in bonus bets from BetMGM.

Think of it this way: a Saturday morning wager of $100 on Scheffler to come from behind at T7, would either net the $750 payout (he's priced at +650 at the time of this writing) or get $100 in bonus bets back if anyone else ends up winning outright on Sunday.

New York and Washington D.C. are the only BetMGM states that do not have access to this offer.

This is the precursor event to next week's British Open in Liverpool, which is the final major event of the season. Let's have a peak into an expert Scottish Open pick and explain how it would unfold if used with bonus bets.

BetMGM Bonus Code: Scottish Open Round 3

McIlroy has given himself a chance to birdie every hole of the first two rounds, but he couldn't break away from the pack with a handful of missed opportunities in his putting—nine from inside 10 feet to be exact.

His 66 in Round 2 was still enough to seize the lead, but there are three players at -9 at T2 right behind him. McIlroy didn't play at the Renaissance Club last year and missed the cut in 2021. That leaves his best finish in the event at T34 in 2019, which was the only other time he's competed in this event at the Renaissance Club.

He's hitting his irons exceptionally well through the first couple of rounds despite coming off of a two-week break.

McIlroy won the British Open in 2014, which was his last major. He has top-10 finishes in all of his last five starts—one of which a second-place finish at Los Angeles CC, which was his second runners-up in 2023.

His approach shots have been a major benefactor in taking the lead on Friday. According to Action's golf insight, over 50% of the approach shots at the Renaissance Club are between 125 and 200 yards, which makes strokes gained on the metric all the more important.

Let's use McIlroy to win outright at +200 as of Saturday morning as our bonus betting selection.

Using $100 in bonus bets for this example, we would see $200 in real profits back. But, we would see nothing back if the field wins and the $100 is not kept in either case.
