Broncos-Titans betting guide and offers

The Broncos 2020 season finally begins tonight as Denver welcomes in Tennessee to Empower Field in the second game of ESPN’s Monday Night Football doubleheader with kickoff scheduled for 8:20 p.m.

Tennessee favored

At DraftKings Sportsbook Denver is listed at +3, in what was a pick ’em game before news of Von Miller’s injury broke. For whatever it’s worth the Broncos are 18-2 in their past 20 home openers, but all those games had fans in the stands and came after a full-slate of preseason games.

The odds makers also are expecting a low-scoring game with the over/under listed at 41. Looking at the first 14 games of the NFL season the overs have hit nine times, it’s obviously a small sample size, but it just feels like 41 is a little too low, even in what could be a defensive contest.

Props worth considering

Over at FanDuel Sportsbook you’re able to place single-game parlays on the Broncos-Titans game, while some sportsbooks don’t allow similar wagers to be combined. Here’s a look at a couple options I think are worth the gamble tonight.

A $10 parlay on Titans running back Derrick Henry and Broncos running back Philip Lindsay along with receiver Jerry Jeudy to all score touchdowns in the game will win you $304. Lindsay and Jeudy are longer shots to get in the end zone, but at odds of +3045 it’s a risk worth taking.

The other bet I really like at FanDuel simply because of the odds is picking Tennessee to win, the Broncos to cover and the over to hit. At odds of +4228 a $10 bet will win you $422. For what it’s worth all it would take is a final score in the low 20s for both teams with the Titans winning by one or two points.

Special offers

There’s a slew of special offers out there on tonight’s game. We’ve already mentioned FanDuel’s single-game parlays bets that are available, here’s a couple more that are worth a look.

DraftKings is offering First TD Insurance, meaning if you bet on who will score the game’s first touchdown you’ll get your money back as long as your pick scores a TD at any point in the game. Your money will be refunded in the form of a free bet up to $20.

If you want to take a Bronco here I would suggest Lindsay, Jeudy or tight end Noah Fant. All three are +1200, so it’s a great payoff if they score first, but you also have a decent chance to get your money back with a TD later in the game.

The final two offers are for new customers at BetMGM and William Hill sportsbooks.

At BetMGM all you need to do is signup, make a deposit and place a moneyline bet on the Broncos-Titans game, if either team scores a TD you’ll receive $100 in free bets.

At William Hill just sign up, make a deposit and place at least a $5 moneyline or point spread bet on the game. If the team you picked wins or loses by less than 50 points you’ll win a $101 free bet.

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

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.

DraftKings

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.

BetMGM

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.

Nuggets-Jazz Game 7 preview

Despite falling behind 3-1 in their best-of-seven series with the Jazz, the Nuggets have battled back to force Game 7 tonight at 6:30 p.m. on ABC. With that in mind here’s a roundup of the best stories to get you ready for tonight’s game.

Murray vs. Mitchell

TheAthletic.com’s John Hollinger wrote about the battle between Denver’s Jamal Murray and Utah’s Donovan Mitchell, described as a “shootout for the ages.”

Both have had two 50-point games in the series, becoming just the third and fourth players in NBA history to have multiple 50-point games in the same series. For the Nuggets Murray has scored 142 points in the past three games with just five turnovers total.

Calipari on Murray

During Murray’s one season playing college basketball he played for legendary coach John Calipari, The Denver Post’s Mike Singer talked to the Kentucky coach on what it’s been like watching his former player shine on the biggest of stages.

Among other things he said this about Murray:

“How good can he be? We don’t know yet, because what he’s done is he’s beginning to master his craft. … There’s not one shot that he shoots that he thinks is a bad shot. If he gets it off, it was a good shot. That’s what Jamal is.”

Harris could be the X-factor

At TheDNVR.com Harrison Wind wrote about how Denver guard Gary Harris could be the X-factor in tonight’s elimination game.

Game 6 was the first NBA game Harris had played in since March, but he managed to play 21 points and held Utah’s Jordan Clarkson to just 11 points on 5-for-14 shooting.

“To welcome him back in an elimination game I think was reassuring to our players. Our guys trust Gary. I trust Gary. He went out there and defended at a high level.”

Nuggets head coach Michael Malone said about Harris.

MPJ deserves praise too

TheAthletic’s Kendra Andrews took at a look at what Michael Porter Jr.’s rookie season has been like through the eyes of those who have taught him.

While The Post’s Sean Keller wrote that while Murray is clearly the Nuggets postseason MVP, both Porter and Harris deserve game balls too.

Chance to make some money

And lastly, on the sports betting side of things, DraftKings is offering fans a chance to bet on the Nuggets and profit based on how many points Murray scores tonight.

The Game 7 scoring special goes like this: Place at $27 or larger wager on the Nuggets moneyline tonight and you get $1 towards a free bet for every point Murray scores. So if Murray scores 40 points you’d get a $40 free bet.

As for the moneyline bet, if you bet $27 and the Nuggets win you’d get $51.84 back, plus however much money for the free bet based on Murray’s point total.

Whether the Nuggets win or lose you’ll get the free bet portion of the special.
