Halftime Payouts Protect Against Blown Leads in Thursday Night Football

The New York Giants were a heavy underdog against the Philadelphia Eagles in NFL betting for their Week 14 matchup in 2019. The spread and money line hovered around +8 and +325 in the days prior to their first meeting of the season. And those who bet on the Giants’ money line were eyeing a big payout as Eli Manning, Saquon Barkley, and Darius Slayton built an early lead.

With Manning’s 55-yard touchdown pass to Slayton in the final seconds of the second quarter, the Giants took a 17-3 lead into halftime. If you placed a $100 bet on the Giants’ money line, you were 30 minutes away from a $425 payout (including stake).

The Giants didn’t score again and eventually lost in overtime, 23-17, when the Eagles scored a touchdown on the opening drive. In blowing the 14-point lead and suffering their 11th loss in 13 games, the Giants also blew your money line ticket.

BetMGM’s new Halftime Payout promotion protects against those blown leads.

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, the Halftime Payout is eligible for all Thursday Night Football betting. If you place a money line bet (up to $250) on either team in the Thursday Night Football game, and that team is winning by at least 10 points, your bet will cash regardless of the game’s outcome.
