BetMGM OH NFL, 01/21/2023

The historic NFC East Giants-Eagles rivalry and the David and Goliath Jaguars-Chiefs matchup will come to a head in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs Saturday. BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION can intensify the spectacle with up to a $1,000 first bet on the house.

All you need to do is use the BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION at sign-up. If 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.

If you want a lower-stakes offer with BetMGM, you can use bonus code ACTIONYARD if you're in Ohio, Maryland, Louisiana, Illinois or Kansas. That unlocks $200 in bet credits when you bet at least $10 on any NFL game and your team throws for 1+ passing yard.

  • ACTIONYARD: Bet $10, get $200 in bet credits (five states only)
  • TOPACTION: $1,000 first bet on the house (all BetMGM states but NY)

We'll dive into using this promotion on Saturday's Divisional games and how you can use bet credits at BetMGM to reap their value.

Betting With BetMGM's Ohio Bonus Code

BetMGM is a great sportsbook for the NFL playoffs because of the strong first touchdown pricingfirst TD promo, prop offerings and other benefits. And before signing up anywhere, check out our guide to each sportsbook promotion type.

Making Your First Bet

OK, so you'll want to find something you're comfortable with that is a longshot i.e. +300, +500 etc. The Giants have come alive since the Week 17, 38-10 annihilation of Indianapolis where Daniel Jones posted four touchdowns and 268 yards.

The Jaguars ended their seasons red-hot. They've now won their last six games and Trevor Lawrence has established prowess with 241.9 YPG and averaging just under 1.5 touchdowns per contest.

We'll start by placing our promo bet on Jaguars-Chiefs with this SGP:

  • Lawrence 2+ TDs
  • Lawrence 250+ Passing Yards
  • Jaguars +9.5

BetMGM has these odds priced at a nice +400, which is exactly the range we're looking for.

Let's say we bet the full $1,000 we can use on this opportunity (we can bet any amount up to that). If you can afford it, this makes the most sense in the long run.

We would see $3,500 back in profits and keep the original $1,000 for a $4,500 total if this hit. Not a bad way to start. But if it loses, we'd get the $1,000 back in bet credits.

Applying BetMGM Bet Credits

Bet credits must be used within seven days of being credited to your account. So you'll want to jump on them as soon as you can.

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.

Think of them like the sportsbook spots you for the bet, and if it wins, you give back the bet, but keep the profits.

Since plus-money wagers are the move, we don't recommend just betting the spread in this case.

Let's keep the trend of the underdog quarterback alive here. It will be the theme of our Saturday. With $1,000 bet credits in hand, let's say we pull out $200 and place it on this Eagles-Giants SGP:

  • Jones 2+Passing TDs
  • Jones 200+ Passing Yards
  • Giants +7.5

BetMGM prices this SGP at +400. So a win would get us $800 in profit, but the $200 goes away. A loss loses the $200.

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.
