BetMGM NBA, 01/17/2023

This post has been updated since Sunday, as BetMGM’s offer changed following the AFC & NFC Championship Games.

There are a few different BetMGM bonus codes available for Wednesday, Feb. 1, and beyond, depending on which state you’re signing up from.

  • Use bonus code TOPACTION for a $1,000 first bet on the house. So if your first bet loses, you’ll be refunded in bet credits equal to what you lose. Available in AZ, CO, IN, IA, IL, KS, LA, MD, MI, NJ, OH, PA, TN, VA, WV, WY. This can be used on any game on any day.
  • Use bonus code ACTIONNBA in OH, MD, KS, IL and LA for $200 in bet credits when you bet at least $10 on any NBA game and your team hits a single 3-pointer.

We’ll explain more about how these offers and bet credits work below.

BetMGM Bonus Codes, Explained

With the first bet on the house, you’ll make your first bet on the platform, and if it loses, you’ll be refunded in bet credits equal to whatever you lost.

Pretend you put $100 on Joe Burrow to score a (rushing) touchdown as your first bet. From Gilles Gallant’s anytime TD preview writeup:

Playoff Burrow is basically my new Ryan Tannehill.

He scored against the Ravens in the Wild Card Round and rushed for 31 yards in the Divisional Game against the Bills.

Burrow tallied 21 red zone carries in 2022 and scored at the goal line against the Chiefs in Week 13.

Though the Chiefs have only surrendered 10 rushing touchdowns this season, they were bottom five in rushing yards allowed to quarterbacks and gave up four touchdowns.

If the Bengals get within the five-yard line, I love my chances. This is my biggest long-shot bet of the day.

  • If Burrow scores, you’ll profit $500 and keep the $100 you bet.
  • If Burrow doesn’t score, you get $100 back in bet credits aka bonus bets.


Understanding BetMGM Bet Credits

Bet credits work like this — you keep the winnings if the bet wins, but not the credit itself.

Say I had $50 in credits and put it on Devonta Smith to score a touchdown against the 49ers at +200. If Smith scores, I’ll profit $100 but don’t keep the $50. If Smith doesn’t score, I lose the credits.

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.

Gallant also likes Smith to reach the end zone:

With A.J. Brown dealing with a hip injury, I expect Jalen Hurts to look for Smith early and often.

Getting looks has not been an issue for Smith in a while, as he’s tallied at least eight targets in 10 consecutive games. Over that stretch, he’s scored six touchdowns.

The 49ers defense is undoubtedly a tough unit, but they can be thrown on. They gave up 16 touchdowns to wide receivers this season and were in the bottom five in passing yards allowed to the position.

As discussed by colleague Nick Giffen on Thursday’s Green Dot Daily, the 49ers have given up a pass of at least 25 yards in 11 straight games. In the Divisional Round, CeeDee Lamb racked up 117 yards on 10 catches, a big chunk of that yardage coming on a 46-yard chunk play.


BetMGM bonus code ACTIONYARD — only available in Ohio, Maryland, Kansas, Illinois and Louisiana — isn’t a first bet on the house.

All you have to do is wager $10 on any NFL game on Sunday, and you’ll get $200 if your team throws for 1+ passing yard. Easy peasy.

You’ll then be able to use the bet credits on whatever game or sport you want.
