The New York Giants visit the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football, and new customers at one New Jersey sportsbook could have a hundred reasons to watch. A BetMGM Daniel Jones promotion provides all those reasons.
The clock is ticking on the promotion, however, as the bet must be placed prior to the 7:20 p.m. ET kickoff on Oct. 10. The low bet cost and potential for a 10,000% return should be enough reason to act quickly.
To get this exclusive, limited-time deal, you need to use the bonus code TOPBET.
Details on the limited-time BetMGM Daniel Jones deal
“Danny Dimes,” as the Giants’ rookie quarterback has come to be known, has taken the New Jersey sports betting world by storm. For this primetime affair in Massachusetts, BetMGM sportsbook has raised the stakes.
The bet is quite simple. If Jones completes a touchdown pass at any point during the game, anyone who placed at least the special bet on Jones doing so wins.
The bet costs Garden State residents and visitors just $1. If Jones comes through, all entrants will receive $100 from BetMGM.
Although completing one touchdown pass may seem like a sure thing, the numbers show it’s far from a foregone conclusion.
Why there’s intrigue despite the simplicity of the bet
Through five games, the Patriots have yet to allow a touchdown pass. As a matter of fact, New England has only allowed two offensive touchdowns so far this season.
The Patriots have given up the fewest yards through the air in the AFC to date this year, trailing only the San Francisco 49ers in the whole NFL in that regard. New England leads the entire league in interceptions (11) and is fifth in fewest completions allowed (97).
This will be the first time in Jones’ career that he has faced a defense of this caliber in any venue, much less on the road. In order to get to 3-1 as the Giants’ starter, Jones will have to record the best performance of his young career thus far.
Jones’ touchdown-to-interception ratio is a mediocre 4/3 to this point. Without Saquon Barkley to alleviate pressure in the running/short passing game, the prospect of even completing one touchdown pass against the Patriots’ defense is no sure thing.
The background data doesn’t bode well for this bet, but the low cost means there’s very little to lose for people in New Jersey who haven’t tried BetMGM to this point. To take advantage of this offer, a few things should be kept in mind.
Everything you need to know about this BetMGM promo
As always, the minimum age to wage is 21. Bettors also have to be physically within the borders of New Jersey to register for an account and place the bet.
Once those criteria are met, here’s what else needs doing:
- Sign up for a new account with BetMGM and make a deposit of at least $10.
- Download the BetMGM app on Android or iOS.
- Place a minimum bet of at least $1 on the Giants’ moneyline (currently +700) before kickoff.
- If Jones throws a touchdown pass, you will receive $100 regardless of the final score.
It’s important to note that this promotion is available only to new customers. For new customers, taking advantage of this promotion makes them ineligible for any other new customer programs.
Anyone who cancels or edits the bet, or cashes out early on the Giants moneyline, becomes ineligible for the promotion. Because of the low risk and high reward, it’s unlikely bettors will do so.
If Jones becomes the first to complete a touchdown pass against New England’s wishes on Thursday, Danny will win lots of dimes for New Jersey bettors.
