BetMGM Bonus Code: $1,000 First Bet Offered for Celtics-Knicks, All Monday Matchups
The Boston Celtics arrive at Madison Square Garden Monday for an Eastern Conference soiree with the New York Knicks all while BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION offers a $1,000 first bet.
While Celtics-Knicks is Monday’s best matchup featuring a 2.5-point spread, this BetMGM Sportsbook promotion can be used on any NBA game or sporting event taking place.
Let’s identify some picks and scenarios when using the bonus code opportunity on this classic rivalry matchup at 7:30 p.m. ET.
BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION, Explained
Since this is a chance to bet with a safety guard in place (if the bet loses, you’ll get what ever you wagered back in bonus bets), we can bet something on the riskier side.
Selecting a Bet: Celtics-Knicks
The Knicks will attempt to extend their five-game hot streak to six when they draw the Celtics on home hardwood Monday. They seized their last game against Boston 120-117 in an overtime thriller when Julius Randle bolstered the offense and dropped 37 points.
The road team won both SU and ATS in both of the previous meetings, as the Celtics took the first matchup in New York 133-118.
In the meantime, Boston has won seven of its last eight contests and continues to lead the NBA with a +6.2 net rating. Its defense has been impeccable as of late at a 111.0 defensive rating.
But New York will face a Boston lineup without Jaylen Brown again while Julius Randle and Jalen Brunson continue to fire on all cylinders. Randle dropped 46 against the Wizards on Friday and has averaged 29.6 points through the win streak.
The Knicks have covered in all five of those games, too.
Jim Turvey suggests favoring the Knicks to come out of the first quarter on top:
New York is 35-26-1 in the first quarter overall this season, good for a +9.1 percent ROI, which ranks fourth in the league this year. That number has been even better at home, with a 21-10-1 record in the first 12 minutes ranking first in the Association, and returning +29.3 percent. Teams just seem to get off to slow starts after having time to hang out in New York City–strange, huh?
The Celtics will be without Jaylen Brown on Monday, who will be out for personal reasons.
Add on top of all that the Celtics have been slow starters all season, with a 26-33-2 record in the first quarter (-14.0 percent ROI) which ranks fourth-worst in the NBA, and you have a best bet for Monday.
Let’s take Turvey’s play and parlay it with Knicks +2.5 for +291 odds.
How the Bet Will Settle
Say we were to deposit $500 and bet it all on this parlay.
We would either:
a) Bank $1,455 for a $1,955 payout and the promotion is over or;
b) Lose the bet and get our $500 back in BetMGM bonus bets.
How to Use BetMGM Bonus Bets
So what are these? Essentially, they’re a stake that can be used to bet, but not keep.
We’ll keep the profits if the bet with them wins.
Let’s look at another scenario.
It’s not the sexiest matchup in the NHL, but since bonus bets appear after a bet settles, Blackhawks-Ducks at 10 p.m. presents an opportunity to use them right away.
Both teams are in all-hands-on-deck tank mode, but let’s take the Blackhawks to win at +105 and place $100 on them.
If they win, we’ll get $105 back and the $100 we used is gone. A loss would return nothing, so this is the final chance to strike profit with your initial deposit.
