There’s a full slate of Week 1 games before the Denver Broncos take the field in the second half of a Monday Night Football double-header. Thankfully for bettors in the Centennial State, there are plenty of Colorado online sportsbooks to choose from with some outstanding promos to celebrate the start of the NFL season.
With sports betting live and legal in Colorado, here’s a quick primer on where and how to bet Week 1 NFL games.
Signing up for a Sportsbook in Colorado
There are no shortage of choices on where to bet this weekend. From industry leaders like DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook, to lesser known options like William Hill and BetRivers, you basically have your pick on betting apps this weekend.
When you sign up for a sportsbook in Colorado, you’ll be asked basic registration information but also some more detailed questions, including potentially for social security number or drivers license number. This is to verify your identity and age. All of these operators are fully regulated, so you can be sure that your information is safe and secure.
DraftKings Sportsbook’s 100-1 Boost on Any Team
Once you make your first deposit, head to the promos/rewards section on the landing page of the desktop site or the home screen of the mobile app, select the promo, and choose which game you’d like to boost to 100-1 odds. Once you’ve made your selection, and the bonus will appear in the betslip.
FanDuel Sportsbook’s Spread The Love
In this offer, featuring a Sunday Night Football clash between the LA Rams and Dallas Cowboys, FanDuel Sportsbook will increase the Rams spread by one point for every 5,000 bettors who opt into the promo.
Keep in mind that regardless of where the spread stands when you opt in, you’ll get the best and final odds. For example, if you opt-into the promotion with the Rams spread at +12, but the final spread finishes at +20, you’ll receive the +20 point spread.
As of this morning, the line is all the way up to +15.
FOX Bet Broncos Boost
$10 Free Bet Every Time Denver Wins
This is a cool, simple, and easy promo to take advantage of with some local flair. FOX Bet Colorado is running a special promo in for new and existing users based on the Denver Broncos’ success.
Start by placing a minimum of one $10 bet on the exact offer “Broncos to Have a Winning Season – Bet $10 Get $10 Free Bet For Every Win”. Your $10 bet on Denver to have a winning season will then net you a $10 free bet for every Broncos win.
While some sportsbooks flaunt a $500+ risk-free bet for new users, such offers can come with a deep set of disclaimers (play-through requirements). BetRivers Colorado has a simple, straight-up deposit match of up to $250.
Here’s how it works: sign up with BetRivers and make a deposit of up to $250. BetRivers will match you deposit with bonus money. That’s it. It’s that simple. Wager the bonus money once in order for it to be eligible to be withdrawn.
There are no shortage of options. And new players will have their choice of sportsbooks and, perhaps more importantly, lucrative signup bonuses.
