Saturday is setting up to be one of the best NBA days of the season thus far. The Eastern Conference Finals will be host to an intense battle of the Heat and Celtics in Game 6. That makes this the perfect time to sign up with BetMGM Sportsbook using BetMGM bonus code LABSTOP to get a $1,000 first-bet offer. Here’s everything you need to know.
To claim this BetMGM new-customer offer, click here and/or enter code LABSTOP at checkout. This will qualify you to get the on-the-house first-bet offer up to $1,000. This helps eliminate most of the risk that normally comes with placing your first bet at a sportsbook.
If your first bet wins, then you keep your stake and your profit — just like a normal bet. However, if your first bet loses, BetMGM will match what you lost (up to $1,000) in bonus bets. That means if you lose, you get another chance to win, and second chances are great in any setting — but especially gambling.
So, for example, if you bet $200 on the Celtics to win Game 6 and the Celtics end up losing, BetMGM will pay you back your $200 in bonus bets. That’s right!
If you’re looking for a best bet idea, here’s a good one for Saturday.
How to bet on NBA Saturday
Use BetMGM bonus code to back the Heat in Game 6 of the ECF
The Eastern Conference Finals have been one heck of a ride, and that ride is not over yet. The Heat took a 3-0 series lead and looked like they were guaranteed a spot in the NBA Finals, but then the Celtics woke up. After stealing Game 4 in Miami, the Celtics dominated Game 5 in Boston. The crowd was killer, and the Celtics’ players and fans are looking ready to be the first team ever to overcome a 3-0 series deficit.
But I don’t think the Heat are ready to roll over.
The crowd played a way bigger factor in Game 5 than some folks realize. Not only was it hard for the Heat to overcome the momentous energy, but the role players fed off of that crowd and knocked down seemingly every three-ball. In Game 6, the crowd should have the opposite effect. If the Heat can get their crowd involved early, it will be harder and harder for the Celtics’ role players to knock down shots, and that’s what they rely on.
Ultimately, I’m not ready to predict Jimmy Butler will throw away a chance to win his first NBA Finals. He has that necessary killer instinct that it takes to finish off an upset, and I like his chances to do it.
