BetMGM Bonus Code ACTIONCUP Unlocks Big World Cup Offer article feature image

Switzerland and Portugal close out the first stage of knockouts in the World Cup Tuesday and BetMGM bonus code ACTIONCUP unlocks $200 when you bet $10 or more on this match (or any other World Cup match this weekend).

The favorite has won every match of the first round leading into Tuesday, but we’ll explain why this match could differ, how to use this bonus code and free bets below.

This promo is available in all BetMGM states except for New York and Pennsylvania. That includes Maryland, which launched full online sports betting two weeks ago.

Offer Details & Signup

Before we break this down, here are the key steps to getting set at BetMGM:

  1. Click here to signup.
  2. Use ACTIONCUP at checkout
  3. Enter your personal info, including name, address, phone number, etc. You may also be asked for the last four digits of your social security number, which is needed to verify your identity.
  4. Deposit at least $10
  5. If you’re headed to a state with legal betting this week, you can still sign up and bet. Just use all your real, accurate information, not the hotel you’re staying at as an address or your friend’s house.

A Guide to BetMGM Promos

This is the best live offer from BetMGM. So even if you’re not a soccer fan, you can use this code to access the $200 in free bets whether you win or lose. From there, you can bet on whatever sport or event you desire.

Ways to Bet Switzerland-Portugal

Of course, it’s always tempting to take the safe bet. But in situations like this bonus code, it’s ideal to look for something that has longer odds.

With that notion in mind, let’s see how we can bet this match with plus-money and feel confidence heading into 2 p.m.:

Our expert soccer analyst Brett Pund had this to say in his Switzerland-Portugal match preview:

I just do not see this big of a difference between two nations that rank as the ninth and 15th-best teams in the FIFA rankings, especially for a Portugal side that I feel could struggle to score.

Considering the advanced metrics above, this Portuguese attack has to play a Swiss defense that has been as tough as could be. They would have even drawn Brazil if not for a deflected Casemiro strike.

Santos is also a manager that has been known to be very conservative once he reaches the knockout round, which could turn this into a low-scoring affair.

This game has extra time written all over it, which would cash our ticket on the Swiss.

The Pick: Switzerland ML

Outcomes of This Promo

You’ll need to bet at least $10 on the match to see the $200 in free bets back.

BetMGM has the Switzerland straight-up odds priced at $360 as of early Tuesday afternoon.

Let’s say you bet $10 on this.

In a world where the Swiss pull out the upset, you win $36, keep you original $10 and score the $200 in free bets. You have $246 in total to move forward with.

But if the Portuguese advance, you lose your $10 deposit, but still secure the $200 in free bets.

Free Bets at BetMGM

We suggest betting on longshots because the more you do, the more profits you will gain over a long period of betting.

This is what’s called expected value, which is the margin between the real odds of something happening and the odds posted by the sportsbook.

Think of free bets this way: BetMGM is essentially spotting your bet. You get the profits if it wins and they take the wager back.

BetMGM also divides their free bets up, so if you get $200 worth of them, you then have four $50 bets.

Say you take $50 of the total $200 and place it on Argentina to defeat the Netherlands on Friday at 2 p.m.

These odds are priced at +120 at BetMGM as of Tuesday.

This would be how your account looks in either of the two results:

Bet Profit Money in Acct.
Argentina wins $60 $210
Argentina loses $0 $150

BetMGM will take the free bets back after you bet with them — whether win or lose.
