BetMGM bonus code for Monday Night Football
To access the risk-free first bet at BetMGM, use the BetMGM bonus code PLAY1000 when you register for an account. When you enter the code, your first wager will be eligible for the promotion. Then, if your first bet loses, you’ll receive a refund as a free bet or bets.
If your first bet at BetMGM Sportsbook is for less than $50, your refund if you lose would be one single free bet for the entire amount. If your first bet is for $50 or more, your refund would be five free bets, each worth 20% of your initial stake. For instance, a $200 opening bet would end up with you getting five free bets for $40 each if that first bet lost.
You’ll need to wager any free bets that you receive within seven days or they’ll expire. A winning wager with a free bet will include only the profit in your payout, not the profit plus the amount of your initial wager, as would be the case with a winning bet you placed with real money.
To claim the welcome bonus at BetMGM, you must be in a state where the online sportsbook operates legally and be of legal betting age in that state.
BetMGM Monday Night Football preview
Monday Night Football action between the Colts and Chargers starts at 8:15 p.m. ET at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
The Chargers are still eyeing a playoff spot after winning three of their last four games, and winning on Monday night would put them within distance of clinching a postseason berth. Last week, they earned a crucial win over the Tennessee Titans, thanks to a last-minute field goal from Cameron Dicker. Quarterback Justin Herbert has been playing well of late, and after Monday’s game the team will have a Los Angeles rivalry game against the Rams and then a trip to Denver to face the Broncos.
The Colts, for their part, will be hoping to build on a solid performance against the Minnesota Vikings last week, a game they lost 39-36 in overtime. The game marked a significant recovery after losing 54-19 to the Dallas Cowboys the week prior, and a home win against the Chargers would be a morale boost for Indianapolis.
The Chargers are 4.5-point favorites going into Monday night, with moneyline odds of Los Angeles -210, Indianapolis +170. The over/under is 45.5 points. There are prop and parlay options available at BetMGM, including odds on players to score a touchdown in the game, with Austin Ekeler (-200), Keenan Allen (+120) and Mike Williams (+125) as the favorites.
