Previewing Wednesday's Slate at BetMGM

Let's dive into a real example from Wednesday's sports slate for using the BetMGM bonus code.

Action Network's Sean Zerillo likes Alec Bohm over 1.5 total bases at +105 or better.

Braxton Garrett continues to show a significant disagreement between his results and underlying indicators (3.63 ERA, 4.23 xERA the past two seasons). Pitching models aren't particularly fond of the former first-round pick (97 Stuff+, 95 Pitching+ in the second half), but he did post quality starts in seven of his 12 second-half outings.

Garrett has struggled against the Phillies, however; current Phillies own a 1.036 OPS against Garrett across 72 plate appearances, and Alec Bohm — who owns a career 139 wRC+ against lefties — may be the offensive player to target in prop markets, after hitting third against southpaw Jesus Luzardo on Tuesday. I project Bohm for 1.77 bases if he's batting third again; bet Bohm Over 1.5 bases at any plus-money price.

Let's say I put a $100 first wager on this prop. If it wins, it will pay $105 in cash, and I'll keep my $100 stake. That's now $205 cash in my account I can continue betting, or withdraw.

If Bohm doesn't get 2+ total bases, I'll get $100 back in bonus bets.

OK, so what do you do with the bonus bets? It's mathematically optimal to use them on longshots, since you're not getting the stake back.

Say I put my $100 in bonus bets Oklahoma State +350 against Kansas State in Friday night college football action.

  • If OK State wins, I'll profit $350 in cash, but I won't keep my $100 bonus bet. So after a $100 deposit, I'll have $350 I can withdraw or continue betting.
  • If OK State loses, I'll have lost my $100 deposit, and have nothing left in my account.
