Top Colorado sportsbook offers for NFL opening weekend

With the NFL season underway, the NBA and NHL playoffs still going and the MLB season winding down the sportsbooks in Colorado have tons of great offers going this weekend. Let’s look at some of the best.


FanDuel continues to offer up great promotions and this weekend is no exception.

Friday they have an NBA risk-free same-game parlay. It works like this, opt-in on the promotions page and then for either the NuggetsClippers or the CelticsRaptors game create a three-leg parlay in which you select the moneyline, over/under and agains the spread bet. If you get all three right great, you make a nice little profit. If not you’ll be refunded up to $10 in site credit.

My advice: Simply make a $10 single-game parlay bet and if you win you’ll make a nice little profit, but if not you literally lose nothing.

On the football side of things FanDuel is offering another Spread the Love contest made popular during the NBA restart. The way it works is simple, for every 5,000 bettors who place a wager on the CowboysRams game they’ll move the line one point in the Rams favor. The max wager is $50, but at the -110 odds that’s still a profit of $45.45. Also, it doesn’t matter when you place your bet, you’ll receive whatever the line gets to by kickoff.

As of Friday afternoon the line was +6 for the Rams, assuming it continues climbing it’ll be a can’t miss come kickoff on Sunday at 6:20 p.m.

My advice: Put the max bet down. The last time FanDuel ran this promo for an NBA game the line ended up over 100 points. I don’t think it will get this high that time, but it should reach a number that pretty much guarantees a win.


Over at DraftKings their biggest promotion centered about Thursday’s Chiefs-Texans game, but they still have plenty of offer this weekend.

If you’re a new customer you can take advantage of their current sign-up offer where you’ll get 100-1 odds on any NFL team to win either Sunday or Monday. The max bet allowed it $1, but still all the means if all you have to do is pick one team to win and you’ll make $100 on your $1 wager. It’s always nice turning a Washington into a Benjamin just like that!

As for existing customers, DraftKings is offering 25% profit boosts on every single Sunday game this weekend. The only stipulations are the max bet for each game is $50 and the max additional winnings are $100 per game.

My advice: If you were planning on placing any NFL bets this weekend just make sure you opt-in and select the 25% single-game profit boost on all your NFL bets. Nothing else changes you just get more money back if you win.


Over at BetMGM there’s a couple great offers to take advantage of and they will cost you exactly zero dollars to do so.

First, is their Pick 3 TD Challenge. Just go to BetMGM’s promotions page and select the player you think will score the first touchdown in the SeahawksFalcons, BuccaneersSaints and CowboysRams games. If you’re right with one pick you’ll get a $5 free bet, two right answer net you a $10 free bet and get all three right and you’ll earn yourself a $100 free bet. It’s free to enter so no reason not to.

The other offer at BetMGM is another can’t miss. Simply log into your account on either Saturday or Sunday before the start of the Sunday Night Football game and you’ll get a free $10 bet. Then use that free bet and hopefully turn it into a whole lot more money!

DraftKings, BetMGM offering incredible odds, free bets ahead of NFL opener

With the NFL season set to begin Thursday night when the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs take on the Houston Texans a pair of Colorado sportsbooks have great offers to take advantage of.

Pair of offers at DraftKings

At DraftKings Sportsbook there are two offers to take advantage of ahead of Thursday’s opener.

The first is a sure thing with the sportsbook offering the Chiefs as +101 point underdogs at odds of -110. The max you’re allowed to bet on the game is $50, but that still nets you a profit of over $45.

The other offer at DraftKings is a futures bet on who will win the Super Bowl. They’ve boosted the odds to 55-1 for all teams in honor of it being Super Bowl 55. The catch here is that you can only bet on one team and the max bet is $1.

Still being able to take teams like the Chiefs, Ravens, Saints or Bucs at 55-1 odds to win the Super Bowl is as good as it gets.

BetMGM giving away free bets

Over at BetMGM the offers are just as easy to take advantage of this week. All you have to do is log into your account prior to the start of the Kansas City-Houston game and you’ll receive a free $10 bet to use on any football game.

Then you’ll get another free $10 bet, again to use on a football game of your choosing, by logging in anytime after 8 a.m. Saturday. You just have to log in before the start of the Dallas-L.A. Rams game which is at 6:20 p.m. Sunday night.

DraftKings offering +101 line on Chiefs

DraftKings Sportsbook is offering an absolute no-brainer bet on Chiefs in celebration of the NFL’s 101st season.

They’ve boosted the line for Kansas City’s opening game against Houston to Chiefs +101 point at -110 odds. What that means is that as long as the Chiefs don’t don’t lose by 101 points you win.

The max you can bet on the offer is $50, but that still will net you a return of $45.50, so there’s no reason not to do it and take the free money.
