BetMGM OH NBA, 01/20/2023

The NBA’s modern-age rivalry of Warriors-Cavaliers headlines Friday’s full course of hardwood action along with the BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION, which is worth $1,000 in return value on any game.

OK, so your first bet with BetMGM Sportsbook loses. You’ll see the amount you lost back in bet credits. In the case it hits, you’ll get the payout. In order to activate this opportunity, just use the bonus code TOPACTION at sign-up.

Keep in mind, this promotion is applicable to any sport — not just hoops.

BetMGM is also offering an exclusive Ohio (plus Maryland, Kansas, Illinois and Louisiana), NBA-specific promotion that’s called ACTIONNBA, which unlocks $200 in bet credits if you bet $10 on the game.

There are no new-user offers available in New York.

Let’s dive into using this promotion with BetMGM on the Warriors-Cavs 7:30 p.m. ET tipoff plus how you can acquire and use bet credits.

Betting With BetMGM’s Ohio Bonus Code

There’s lots of language out there with sportsbooks. We’ve got a guide handy to explain what each of them means by its marketing. Let’s get into how you should take advantage of a “first bet on the house” with BetMGM bonus code, TOPACTION.

Warriors vs. Cavaliers Preview at BetMGM

BetMGM has given the Cavaliers (28-18) eight points on the spread in their second matchup against the Warriors (22-23). The Nov. 11 meeting was a 106-101 decision in Golden State’s favor. The Warriors have dropped stock since — now having lost five of their last seven after Thursday’s 118-121 defeat to Boston.

Given the Warriors playing a back-to-back and the polarizing home and away records between the two (Cavaliers 19-4 at home, Warriors 5-18 away), the Warriors would need another sparkling 40-point performance from Steph Curry to cover. Donovan Mitchell has been the messiah for Cleveland averaging 28.4 PPG, which is eighth amongst the NBA. Mitchell sat for Wednesday’s game and his status for Friday night is still unknown.

The Cavs are limiting their opponents to 107.1 PPG, which leads the league. Golden State still boasts a high-octane offense with 117.6 PPG and is No. 1 in assists with 29.3.

Our Joe Dellera thinks the Warriors can keep pace even if Mitchell does or doesn’t play in his game preview:

The game tomorrow is extremely important because the Bucks currently lead the season series, 2-1. If the Cavaliers lose that game, they will lose the head-to-head tiebreaker in what is a closely contested Eastern Conference. However, if they win, they will split the head-to-head matchup and could be just one game behind the Bucks in the loss column.

Without Mitchell, the Cavaliers can still contend; however, it severely impacts their firepower against a Warriors team that seems to be finding a bit of their offensive stride as they limit their rotations.

Additionally, while the Cavs’ big men in Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley should play well tonight against a relatively undersized Warriors’ frontcourt, they will struggle to defend the perimeter.

I project Mitchell will sit due to the importance of tomorrow’s game and this spread likely drops to +6. I’ll grab the points now, but even if Mitchell does play, I like the Warriors’ chances to not only keep this within a few possessions but to possibly win outright.

The Pick: Warriors +8 + +223.5 at +264

How This Bet Will Settle

It might make you sweat, but you’ll want to place your whole bank roll (up to $1,000) on this bet, if you can afford it. It makes the most sense in the long run. If you pull out $1,000 onto the BetMGM app and use it all on our first bet, we would see $2,640 back in profits and keep the original $100 for $3,640 total. The promotion kicks in if we lose, in which we’d get the $1,000 back in bet credits.

Outcome Profits Total $
Parlay hits $2,640 $3,640
Parlay misses $0 $1,000 (bet credits)

Applying BetMGM Bet Credits

BetMGM splits up its credits into any increment. You can use $10 on one bet and $100 on another. Or just bet the full $1,000. 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.

Let’s say you use $100 on the Giants to upset the Eagles at +275 on Saturday. A win will get $275 back in profits, but the $100 in bet credits is gone. A loss means you make nothing and lose the $100. You’d still have $900 left to use.

We always recommend you make plus-money wagers with your bet credits, so taking spreads actually isn’t the best idea. You’re getting much more expected value, since you don’t keep the initial stake. While you may not hit your bet credits as often at +500 since those outcomes are less likely, it’s mathematically optimal and you’ll make money in the long run.
