BetMGM bonus code for Thanksgiving Day football

To claim the BetMGM promo this week, input the BetMGM bonus code PLAY1000 on the registration form when you create your account. The bonus is a risk-free bet, which means that if your first bet at BetMGM loses, you’ll receive an equal refund in the form of free bets.

If your first bet is for less than $50 and it loses, you’ll receive one single free bet worth the full amount. If your first wager is $50 or more and it loses, you’ll receive five free bets, each worth 20% of your stake. For instance, if you wager $200 on the Bills to beat the Lions this Thanksgiving, and the Lions win, you’d receive five free bets, each worth $40.

Note that a refund in free bets is not the same as a refund in cash. Free bets are not withdrawable from your account, and if you don’t wager them within seven days of receiving them, they will expire. In addition to that, any bets you place with your free bets do not return your stake; they only return profit (provided you win.)

To claim the BetMGM welcome bonus of a risk-free bet up to $1,000, you must be in a state where BetMGM is legal, and you must be of legal betting age in that state.

Note that BetMGM Maryland is now accepting wagers, and you can use the BetMGM Maryland bonus code PLAY1000 to claim  $1,000 first bet insurance.

BetMGM Thanksgiving Day football preview

There are three games slated for Turkey Day, and BetMGM has lines available on all three. The first, Buffalo at Detroit, kicks off at 12:30 p.m. ET and will see a Bills team currently in a dogfight for the lead in the AFC East. BetMGM has Buffalo at -9 on the spread, with moneyline odds of Bills -450, Lions +340.

The second game, kicking off at 4:30 p.m. ET at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, is a classic NFC East rivalry game between two teams sporting identical 7-3 records: the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants. BetMGM has the Cowboys as nine-point favorites, with moneyline odds of Dallas -400, New York +310.

Finally, starting at 8:20 p.m. ET, the New England Patriots travel to Minneapolis for a date with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings will be looking to bounce back after a 40-3 humbling by the Cowboys, while the Patriots will hope to keep things going after a 10-3 win against their division rivals, the New York Jets. BetMGM has the Vikings favored by three and moneyline odds of Minnesota -160, New England +135.
