BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION Gets $1K First Bet on the House for Heat-Celtics, Thursday Events

BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION Gets $1K First Bet on the House for Heat-Celtics, Thursday Events article feature image

The Boston Celtics live to fight another day against the Miami Heat with a Game 5 date at home Thursday. Boston is back to being 8-point favorites on the spread, the Heat have +250 moneyline odds with value, and BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION provides a $1,000 first bet on the house.

What this means is that BetMGM will return your losses in bonus bets should your first bet fail. You need to deposit a $10 minimum, but the offer is valid up to $1,000. Bettors must lose their first $1,000 bet to access the full amount in bonus bets.

If you place $100 on your first bet and it wins, you keep the bet stake and any profit. If it loses, you get $100 back in bonus bets.

This offer can be used to strike value on Celtics-Heat Game 5, Stars-Golden Knights Game 4, or any other event taking place on the Thursday betting board or throughout the weekend.

There are three other, lower-risk offers available. You just need to bet $10 on any MLB, NHL or NBA moneyline and you’ll get $100 in bonus bets no matter what ($200 in MA and Ohio).

  • TOPACTION: $1k first bet on the house
  • TOPACTIONNBA: Bet $10 on any NBA moneyline, get $100 ($200 in MA & OH)
  • ACTIONNHL: Bet $10, get $100 ($200 in MA & OH)
  • ACTIONMLB: Bet $10, get $100 ($200 in MA & OH)

None of these offers are live in New York or Washington D.C.

Overcoming the 3-0 deficit has never happened in NBA history; The Celtics have three more hurdles to jump before accomplishing this feat. Game 5 will commence at 8:30 p.m. ET on TNT at TD Garden. Let’s take a look at how bonus bets can be used on Thursday’s action.

BetMGM Offers by State

All four offers are available in most states, but because you’re getting $200 in bonus bets in Mass. and Ohio and $100 everywhere else, we recommend using TOPACTION in most states. You can lock in a profit with the first bet on the house that totals more than $200, but most users won’t want to go through that process.

BetMGM Promo Offer for Heat-Celtics Game 5

We only keep the winnings when wagering bonus bets. Our +EV betting guide explains a plus-money prop or parlay in the +300 to +700 range is wise. You may lose more bets, but you’ll net the better value.

When it comes to finding your unit size, there’s a notion that you will maximize your bankroll at lower variance by prioritizing EV% likelihood of winning. We suggest to start small and then grow from there. You can increase your wager amounts progressively as you become more comfortable with +EV betting and your bankroll grows.

With that said, let’s create a parlay using a couple of Game 5 best bets courtesy of Action’s NBA experts:

  • Andrew O’Connor-Watts on Over 215.5 at -110:

I’m betting a lot of props in this game and you can find those picks in the Heat-Celtics betting guide here.

My favorite play for Game 5 is over 215.5. Boston is 11-6 to the over in the postseason and Miami has gone over in over 70% of its games. Game 4 was the only game that stayed under, and it did so by just a point. (It certainly would have gone over if the Heat shot better than 25% from 3, or if the Celtics shot better than 66.7% from the free-throw line.)

The Heat scored 99 points Tuesday, but, according to, they were projected at 110.2. The Celtics’ scoring 116 was over their expected score of 107, but if we combine the two expected numbers, the over would have cashed.

  • Bryan Fonseca on H2H Points: Jimmy Butler +3.5 vs. Jayson Tatum at -110:

35-30 Butler
34-27 Tatum
16-14 Butler
33-29 Tatum

So Butler has covered the 3.5 — and has flat out out-scored Tatum twice. Butler had 29 in Game 4, but it wasn’t a great one. He missed some bunnies and forced a few jumpers, shooting 9-of-21; it was one of his worst games of the playoffs. Meanwhile, Tatum had his best game of the series: 33 points on 14-of-22 shooting, hit 4-of-9 from deep, and actually scored in the fourth.

We’ll get +264 odds on an SGP using these two props. If Butler covers his prop vs. Tatum and the game hits the over on point total, we would net $264 with $100 in bonus bets placed down. If one or both legs do not hit, we lose the $100 and profit nothing.

  1. You must be 21+ years old to register and bet.
