The NBA Playoffs have started and BetMGM has come up with some creative promotions to help you celebrate the start of the postseason.

Here’s a rundown of the betting deals the site is offering as you begin trying to pick NBA winners on the road to the Finals.

Win Risk-Free Bets

If you pick a team to win the NBA Finals, you win when they do. When you place a futures bet of at least $10 on a team winning the title, BetMGM will give you a risk-free bet token every time that team advances another round in the playoffs.

That means, even if your team doesn’t cut down the nets in June, you could still be a winner of up to three risk-free tokens—for each of the first three rounds of the NBA playoffs. And if you do win your bet, you get the risk-free tokens as the cherry on top.

Overtime Insurance

Nothing is more frustrating than seeing the team you picked lose in overtime. So BetMGM is taking that stress out of your life with Overtime Insurance.

If you lose your NBA Playoffs bet in overtime, you get your moneyline stake back up to $25. If the game was that close, you might as well get a do-over, right?

Free First Basket Bet

A fun prop bet is on the person to score the first basket in a game. And now, you can essentially make that bet for free. For the postseason, BetMGM is offering to give you your stake back—up to $25—if you bet on the first-basket scorer and lose.
