Let's chat more about how to sign up and bonus strategies to Vikings-Eagles on Thursday.
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.
BetMGM Promo Code Guide: Thursday Night Football Week 2
Making Your First Bet
If you are using BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION, we suggest to wager your entire bankroll here since it's all the more value to use sparingly if you lose.
So we'll say that we deposit the max of $1,500 in this example. We place all of that on the Over of 49 points:
[The Vikings] offense was held back by a run game that ranked 31st in EPA and 24th in success rate in Week 1. I expect head coach Kevin O’Connell to continue to lean on the passing game given how strong this Eagles front seven is. The Vikings threw the ball on 75% of their plays in Week 1, so we know we aren’t dealing with a stubborn play-caller who will just blindly stick with the run game even when it isn’t working.
I expect the Vikings offense to be pass-heavy, and I expect them to find success as Eagles cornerback James Bradberry, linebacker Nakobe Dean and safety Reed Blankenship will all be out for this one. I grabbed this at 48, but I’d be comfortably grabbing 49 or potentially grabbing this one live if you were late to the best number.
At -110 odds, if the bet hits, we would see our payout of $2,863.64 and the offer is effectively complete. If the points total stays under 49 points, then we get $1,500 back in bonus bets from BetMGM.
That's why we advise to bet the max on this offer; it's all the more value in either result.
Applying Bonus Bets
OK, now it’s time to use the bonus bets. It’s like a credit: You keep the winnings if your bet wins, but not the bonus bet amount itself.
It sounds strange, but the best strategy is to use bonus bets is on plus-money wagers because you’re getting more expected value. BetMGM bonus bets hit your account after the bet settles, but for the sake of our example, let's suppose we have them ready for the 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff on Thursday.
We'll pair together Eagles -6 and Kirk Cousins on the Under for his 262.5 passing yards prop for a same game parlay that nets +235 odds.
- Eagles -6:
The Eagles' injuries are not nothing, but I think they're buying us value on the line when this game will be won by Philadelphia dominating in the trenches. I like the Eagles at any number under a touchdown.
This has also set up as a perfect teaser leg to head into the weekend. I already played an Eagles-Bills teaser if that's your fancy. Philadelphia is much better and should take care of business.
- Kirk Cousins Under 262.5 passing yards:
Last year’s Philadelphia Eagles were among the best all-time at rushing the quarterback, coming up just short of the NFL record for sacks in a season. Using PFF’s OL/DL matchup tool, the Vikings are at a 38% disadvantage with their pass-blocking unit. This would be the second biggest disadvantage for any team in Week 2. Last week, Kirk Cousins was hit seven times against the Tampa Bay defense, which was the second-highest total of the weekend.
The Vikings also struggled to run the ball last week, ranking 24th in rushing success rate and 31st in rushing EPA. If Minnesota cannot move the ball on the ground, this will force them into obvious passing downs, which they certainly do not want.
For this one, I’ll be taking Kirk Cousins under 263.5 passing yards. There are multiple avenues for this bet to cash, but the most likely scenario is that this Eagles defense can suffocate the Minnesota offensive attack.
If we placed $100 in bonus bets on this SGP, we would get back $235 in real money. The $100 stake goes away and we can do as we please with the winnings.
