About BetMGM Springfield
BetMGM Sportsbook at MGM Springfield is the only retail sportsbook in Springfield, MA – let alone the only in-person sports betting facility in Western Massachusetts. The MGM Resorts-operated in-person sportsbook opened on January 31, 2023, the day that the Massachusetts Gaming Commission launched sports betting.
The sports betting facility operates via the BetMGM brand, a popular online sports betting and casino brand among many sports betting states. In fact, there is a BetMGM bonus code Massachusetts bettors can claim now, valued at up to $1,500.
The sportsbook is located near the main entrance of the casino. Up until March 10, 2023, BetMGM Springfield was one of three sports betting options in the state licensed by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission. Massachusetts sports betting apps went live after that date, including MGM Resorts' online brand BetMGM.

Most of these retail sports betting promos can be expected around large-scale sporting events like the Super Bowl, March Madness NCAA Tournament, the Masters or NBA and NHL Finals.

Bet Types at BetMGM Springfield
All of the standard sports bets that you can find at most sportsbooks are also available at the BetMGM Springfield sportsbook. When you arrive at the sportsbook, you'll be able to place the following wagers among others:
Moneylines This is the most basic kind of wager, where a straight bet is placed on the winner of an event. Odds are listed with a plus sign (underdog) or minus sign (favorite). If the New England Patriots are at +120, they're slight underdogs, and a $100 bet on them would return a profit of $120.
Point Spreads When using this kind of bet, you wager on the margin of victory, rather than just on the winner of the game. For example, if you bet on the Boston Red Sox at -1.5, the Sox has to win by 2 runs or more for the bet to win. On the other hand, if you're betting on the underdog, your team can still "cover" the spread and lose the game.
Futures Futures bets are long-term wagers, on things like the winner of the final season event or championship. An early-season bet on the New England Patriots to win the Super Bowl, however ill-advised, is a futures bet.
Totals This kind of bet is a wager on whether the combined points/goals total for an event is over or under the points line defined by the sportsbook. For instance, there might be a line of 5.5 for a game between the Boston Bruins and the New York Rangers, so you have to bet on whether you think there will be 5 goals or fewer (under) or 6 goals or more (over).
Parlays Parlay bets are a combination of two or more wagers where both outcomes must be correct for the bet to pay out money. There are plenty of parlay bets that you can make at BetMGM Springfield, so the possibilities can be endless!
Prop Bets These are often considered "fun" bets since you can place a wager on a specific event, rather than on the outcome of the game overall. For instance, bettors can wager on a certain New England Patriots player's passing yards.
