BetMGM Grand Slam Jackpot

Best Bet for Friday, May 31: Bryce Harper (+333)

It's easy to see why we're taking Mr. Harper as our top pick to hit a grand slam on Friday. The 31-year-old power hitter has absolutely OWNED St. Louis starting pitcher Miles Mikolas in his career. Harper has an expecting batting average of .394 against Mikolas and he's taken him deep twice in only 20 at-bats.

Harper's exit velocity against Mikolas is a whopping 99.4 mph, which is the highest in the Phillies lineup. Aside from Harper's stellar career metrics against this guy, I also love that Mikolas has given up 12 earned runs over his last 3 starts against Philadelphia. He's also walked 6 batters over his last 17 innings of work.

Need more proof that this is a bad matchup for Mikolas? Your wish is my command! Through 147 plate appearances, the Phillies have an expected batting average of .308 against him. Mikolas's barrel rate and hard-hit rate only rank in the 28th and 21st percentiles, respectively.

Lastly, Mikolas has had a bad habit of hanging his slider out over the plate this season. If he does that against Harper, a long home run is almost a certainty. Best of luck with your action on the diamond this weekend! We'll be back next week with more outstanding plays for this BetMGM promo.

Does BetMGM Have a Signup Offer for New Players?

Absolutely! BetMGM goes to great lengths to reward new customers! Right now, anyone who is new to BetMGM can receive up to $1,500 in Bonus Bets Back if their first bet loses. Here's how it works:

There is one main detail to pay attention to with this promo. Once BetMGM issues the Bonus Bets to you, you must use them within 7 days. Keep that in mind because the last thing you want is for those to be voided. All in all, though, this is a fantastic bonus offer and we highly recommend it.
