The Memphis Tigers charter Southeast to challenge the No. 4 Alabama Crimson Tide and BetMGM bonus code ACTION will seize up to $1,000 for this game or any other taking place on Tuesday.

Just input code ACTION at checkout to claim this offer.

While both schools seek their ninth victory on the young season, this will be a tough test for Memphis. Let’s take a closer look into how we can approach this game, what to expect with this promotion, the free bets hoopla and more tips.

Other Live BetMGM Offers

Betting Quick Tip

When you’ve decided how you’d like to a bet a game — whether that be the moneyline, total, spread or a prop — it’s best to seek the best line.

Depending on the sportsbook, there are varying types of bettors. While BetMGM has Alabama as 7.5-point favorites, another book might have them at an even seven.

That extra half-point might is nothing to scoff at for two reasons:

  1. It adds up over time.
  2. Your chances of winning increase.

Our live odds pages will automatically surface the best line for every game.

Here’s our full list of betting guide and a how-to for reading American odds if you’re interested in learning more tips.

Memphis-Alabama Preview

Memphis may have cruised out to an 8-2 start to their season, but the unranked Tigers still have plenty to prove. Tuesday’s tipoff against Alabama arrives as that opportunity. The Crimson Tide are riding high after knocking down No. 1 Houston on Saturday. Memphis could pose the same defensive threats to Alabama that UConn did — the only team to defeat the Crimson Tide thus far.

Our D.J. James offers the perspective that the Tigers can use their defensive acumen to slow down Alabama’s shooting in his preview:

Memphis’ defense runs on producing turnovers. On the season, the Tigers are turning opponents over at a 21.7% clip.

The boost in this game comes from how messy Alabama plays. Yes, the Crimson Tide run at the 25th-fastest Adjusted Tempo (KenPom), but this induces a plethora of turnovers along the way.

The Tide rank 295th in offensive turnover rate at 21.4%, so this will play right into the hands of the Tigers, literally. Memphis, although on the road, will turn over the Tide with ease.

Building off of that, the Tigers carry the 19th-rated Adjusted Defensive Efficiency while Bama ranks 13th. The difference is nearly negligible with how messy the Tide can be.

Memphis can limit the deep threats from Alabama greatly, and this will be the key to success in this game on the road. If, early on, Memphis is restricting open looks from outside and forcing turnovers, it will keep this game tight.

Expect the Tigers to keep this within the spread. Take them from +6.5 (-110), and play them to 4.5 (-110). The market is overvaluing Alabama coming off of its major win at Houston.

Selecting a Bet & Free Bets

OK, so we decide that Kendric Davis should carry the Tigers to a close game against the No. 4 team in collegiate basketball.

Here’s the suggested play:

Bet Line
Kendric Davis 17.5+ Points -120
Memphis +6.5 -110
Total +220

We’ve got $100 to wage on Tuesday. If we bet this parlay, we would need the Davis Prop to hit and Memphis to cover for a $320 payout. If it doesn’t work out, we’ll get back $100 in free bets since that is the amount that we bet.

Free bets are simple: Use them to place bets to collect profits if you win. Think of it as a friend spotting you for a bet. But if you lose, you have nothing.

You don’t have to use them all at once, so let’s say we set aside $50 of the $100. Let’s place it on the Warriors to defeat the Bucks straight-up on Wednesday night. BetMGM priced these odds at +135.

This is what our outlook would look like with using the $50 of free bets on the Warriors:

Outcome Profits Total $
Warriors Win $67.50 $117.50 ($50 in free bets)
Warriors Lose $0 $50 (leftover free bets)
