BetMGM pre-registration offer

Ohio residents can claim a tremendous offer ahead of today’s action. They can be well prepared for launch on January 1st with an extra $200 in free bets from BetMGM. While they can’t bet on today’s bowl games, there will be an excellent slate on New Year’s day.

How to bet on the Holiday Bowl

Get your popcorn ready, as we have a potential barnburner on our hands tonight. The Oregon Ducks will square off against the North Carolina Tar Heels.

The first thing that you notice about the lines for this game is the total. It has been bet up to a staggering 75 expected points.

That is due to the fact that neither of these teams had any success stopping the pass this year. They both finished in the bottom 30 in opponent completion percentage rate and yards per pass allowed.

Put those numbers up against two of the better quarterbacks in the country, Drake Maye and Bo Nix, and you have a recipe for a bunch of points.

However, Maye will be missing his top target, who opted out of this matchup. That could impact the offense’s production and allow Oregon to open up a sizable lead on the Tar Heels.

Given that North Carolina has not have an avenue to slow down the Ducks, they should pull away and cover the spread.

The Lion’s boost

Each day, BetMGM offers bettors an odds boost on the biggest matchup of the day. These can range from odds boosts on moneyline, alternate spreads, curated parlay, and even one-game parlays.

Many of these boosts offer positive expected value as they typically contain edges over the current market at enhanced prices. So once you sign up at BetMGM, be on the lookout for the daily Lion’s boost to help add to your bankroll.
