While sports betting has been legal in Colorado for nearly two months, the state has yet to tap into its full potential as a mobile sports betting hub due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since sports betting went live on May 1, the UFC has been the primary sport available to wager on that is relatively familiar to US residents, in addition to a handful of golf tournaments and the recent startup of various international soccer leagues.
As the summer continues to progress, the return of major professional sports in North America is just around the corner. So long as nothing drastic happens between now and the end of summer, all four major sports will be in play at once, which will genuinely be paradise on earth for sports bettors.
The return of sports is sure to give the sports betting industry plenty of juice and will preview the potential of the Colorado market.
According to TheLines.com, Colorado ”could become the top state for mobile sports wagering in America.” due to the proximity of the state’s casinos from major cities and the wide range of online options already available in the state.
DraftKings, FanDuel, FOX Bet and BetRivers all already operate in Colorado, and the state will serve as the first expansion site for Circa Sports and the renowned Superbook, which operates out of the Westgate Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
”The combination of big mobile sports betting brands and traditionally sharp sportsbooks with great odds could make Colorado one of the best states for online sports betting in the US.”
So be sure to save up some spare change and study up on bankroll management because there will be an abundance of betting opportunities available in the near future.
