BetMGM Bonus Code TOPTAN1500 Unlocks $1.5K Deposit Match Usable on All July Fourth Weekend Events
Fourth of July weekend kicks off with a 15-game Friday schedule highlighted by the top teams of the AL West beginning a three-game set in Astros-Rangers. You can bank value for any weekend event by using BetMGM bonus code TOPTAN1500 to access $1.5K in bonus value with a $20% deposit match.
In other words, you'll get 20% worth of whatever you first deposit at BetMGM in bonus bets. Since the max value for this offer is $1,500, you can deposit up to $7,500.
You need to bet 10x whatever amount you get in bonus bets to be able to withdraw. So a $100 deposit that gets $20 back in bonus bets would require $200 worth of bets ($20 x 10 = $200) for withdrawal.
New York and Washington D.C. are the only BetMGM states that do not have access to this offer.
First pitch between Houston and Texas is at 8:05 p.m. ET with Ronel Garcia facing Jon Gray. Let's dive into the matchup below.
BetMGM Bonus Code: Astros-Rangers
Since getting a shot in the Astros rotation earlier this month, Blanco has pitched adequately—allowing a 4.70 ERA and posting over 5 strikeouts as a starter. The rookie relies heavily on his fastball, which the Reds figured out a couple weeks back when they knocked him around for 7 hits and 5 ER in 5.2 IP. Blanco pitched 3 innings in two games against the Rangers in April and struck out 3 while allowing 5 hits and 1 ER.
Jon Gray has been a rock for Texas all season long with only two starts having allowed 4+ ER. His worst outing came in a high-scoring affair against the Blue Jays in mid-June where he allowed 6 hits and ER in 2.1 IP. Otherwise, Gray displays a bit more variety in his arsenal with emphasis on the 4-seam fastball and mixing his slider and changeup in. His last start against Houston resulted in a no-decision 2-8 loss in which Gray surrendered 1 ER in 2 innings pitched.
Kenney Ducey likes the Rangers to cover .05 in the first five innings due to the high fly-ball rate both Blanco and Gray maintain:
We’ve got two fly ball pitchers facing off here in a park ranked 13th in park factor for home runs, so this game very well may be decided by who can get the ball in the air more.
Houston is not only 16th in fly ball rate, but will be up against a pitcher who’s been inducing ground balls at a higher rate in the last month.
The Rangers have also been marginally better at the plate than their counterparts here, and they will draw a pitcher who simply can’t stop allowing home runs.
I think the line here is correct, and in an effort to back Gray and fade Garcia, I’m going to take the first five spread.
Bonus bets should always be placed on longshots for more return value. This prop is -145, so if we were to parlay it with Rangers to cover -1.5, we'd see +262 odds.
A $100 bonus bet would see $262 in profits, not $362 since the stake is never kept after using these.
