Everyone needs insurance: on their home, on their car, on their most valuable possessions. Sports bettors can use a little bit of it, too. That’s where the BetMGM NY NFL Playoffs promo comes into play as one of the top U.S. sports betting industry’s top promotions.
BetMGM NY, a sports betting institution with decades of history, is offering new users in New York an introductory promotion that includes a risk-free bet of up to $1,000. That type of promo is essentially insurance. Even if you lose, you get the amount of the stake back in the form of free bets up to the maximum amount. And it arrives just in time for an NFL Wild Card playoff weekend featuring a pair of teams from the Empire State.
The Buffalo Bills are 13-point home favorites on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins in the AFC, according to BetMGM. Elsewhere in NY, the New York Giants are 3-point road underdogs against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC. The free bet offered by BetMGM allows new customers in New York to try their hand at wagering on NFL games—without any worries about losing the bet.
BetMGM NY NFL Playoffs Promo: The Terms & Conditions You Need To Know
While “free bets” – essentially credits that can be used to make other wagers on the site – are a cornerstone of sports betting promotions. Few operators allow maximums like the $1,000 offered by BetMGM. Win that first bet? Fantastic. But even if you lose, you’ll get the amount of the stake back up to the maximum. By doing so, you’re able to wager on anything at BetMGM and raise your chances of making a profit in the process.
Certain terms and conditions do apply. Qualifying for the promotion requires users to sign up for a new account at BetMGM. Of course, that requires information that allows the sportsbook to confirm your age, identity, and location. That’s due to the age & location limit. Users must be at least 21 years old to bet in New York and must be physically within the boundaries of the state to wager over a mobile device. The promo also requires a minimum deposit of at least $10.
If your initial bet wins, then congratulations! But if it loses, the BetMGM insurance kicks in. Bettors who wagered between $50 and $1,000 will receive five free bets, each worth 20% of their original stake. Meanwhile, those who bet less than $50 will receive a single free bet in the amount of the initial wager. Free bets must be used within seven days and cannot be redeemed for cash.
Dozens of options on each game
Even with only two Empire State teams in the field, new customers will have plenty of options for BetMGM New York NFL playoff betting. The King of Sportsbooks has dozens of wagers available on both the Bills and Giants games. Options range from the standard spread, moneyline, and totals to parlays & props on halves and quarters.
For instance, while the Bills — who have won seven straight, covering the spread four times — are an -800 favorite over Miami on the moneyline, bettors can find a prop at BetMGM that will pay +340 should Buffalo win by between seven and 12 points. Bills quarterback Josh Allen is a -105 wager to go over 22.5 pass completions (which he’s done in three straight games), while tight end Dawson Knox is +120 to go over 3.5 receptions (which he’s done six times this year).
Meanwhile, in Minnesota, the Giants (6-1 ATS last seven) own the NFL’s best record against the spread at 13-4. Still, the G-Men are +140 at BetMGM to pull the upset and +700 to win by between seven and 12 points. Given New York’s exceptional cover rate, you can squeeze that line down to +2 with odds of +120. And since the G-Men have gone over the total in three of their last five outings, bettors can get +300 odds on a New York moneyline victory combined with a game that goes over a total of 45.5 points.
And if you’re feeling incredibly bold about the playoff chances of the teams from the Empire State? BetMGM offers odds of +8000 on the Bills and Giants meeting in the Super Bowl.
