BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION Grabs up to $1,000 Bet Value for Saturday CBB article feature image

BetMGM CBB, 02/04/2023

If you’re looking to make a splash into Saturday’s extensive college basketball betting slate, there’s $1,000 of value up for grabs with BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION.

By “value,” we mean that BetMGM is offering a first bet on the house that’s up to $1,000. If it loses, they will reimburse users whatever they lost in bet credits.

Still not quite sure how to bet with this promotion? We’ll dial into a few examples with Saturday’s college hoops games.


We know it’s tempting to take the spread or the total, but you’ll want to consider something above even odds.

We also suggest steering away from betting hot teams and fading teams that are stinking — both are overvalued.

OK, since we’re looking for a plus-money play that will have the protection of the promotion, let’s say we want to go with LSU to defeat No. 4 Alabama at +530 moneyline odds at BetMGM.

Let’s use all $1,000 for this example to demonstrate how you can reap the most value from the offer.

  • If the Tigers pull off the upset with an implied probability of 15.9%, we’d get our $6,300 payout, and the promotion is over.
  • If the Tigers lose, we’d get the full $1,000 back in bet credits.

Profiting With Bet Credits

You may have your $1,000 back, but you need to bet it to get hard cash that you can actually withdraw.

BetMGM allows bettors to split up its credits into any increment or wager all of it at once.

Bet credits must be used within seven days of being credited to your account. Think of them like the sportsbook spots you for the bet, and if it wins, you give back the bet, but keep the profits.

The Alabama-LSU tipoff is at 4 p.m., so we’ll have plenty of games to use bet credits on in the later Saturday slate once that one is over.

Here’s a bet credits example: Let’s break off $250 of the $1,000 pot and use it on Oklahoma to beat West Virginia at +250 odds.

  • A Sooners victory would net a $625 payout. The $250 we used is gone and we still have $750 left in bet credits to wager in the future with.
  • A Sooners loss would profit zilcho and the $250 is taken back by BetMGM.

Expert CBB Bets for Saturday

Looking for a pick vetted by the professionals? Here’s a pair of excerpts from the Action staff’s Saturday CBB best bets writeup:

  • BJ Cunningham on Kansas -1 at noon:

The Cyclones are leading the Big 12 in 3-point percentage, but they also don’t take a very high number of 3-point shots, and they are actually a high frequency mid-range team.

In fact, their offense for the year has been very underwhelming. They are putting up 0.95 PPP in the half-court (297th). Also, they are 313th in FG% from mid-range jumpers, 258th in shot selection and 284th in spacing.

It’s just not a good offense, so the Clones are going to be very reliant on their defense in this game. Kansas has won the last seven meetings against Iowa State, and I like the Jayhawks to make it eight on Saturday.

  • D.J. James on Florida State -4 at 2 p.m.:

The only thing the Cardinals do well is get to the free-throw line at a 34.9% rate. Both of these teams tend to foul often, so the Cardinals will probably have a slight edge on getting to the line in this game.

That said, the Cards are allowing teams to shoot 34.6% from deep and 54.6% from 2-point range. Florida State is shooting 34.7% from deep and allowing teams to shoot 36.7% from 3 on it.

Louisville basically only can score efficiently from the line, so take the better offensive team amongst the two on the spread.
