What Kind of Bets Are Available for Colorado NFL Betting?
NFL betting isn’t particularly difficult to do, but you need to understand first of all what exactly you plan to bet on and what needs to happen for you to win. This means checking out the following bet types to see which appeal to you in any given game.
This is the simplest type of sports bet, as you’re choosing which team you think will win the game outright, and nothing else but the overall results matter to your chance of winning money. One of the teams will have a negative number next to it, which tells you that they’re the favorite. The number listed next to the negative sign is how much you need to bet to win $100.
The other team will show a positive figure, and this is classed as the underdog. This number tells you how much your win will be if you bet $100. Don’t worry if that sounds confusing, as you can simply try putting different numbers into the amount field on your bet slip until you’re happy with how it looks and confirm the wager.
With a point spread bet, you’re looking to decide which team wins but also taking into account a points handicap. This means that the favorite will show a number of points with a negative next to it, together with odds that are also negative. This could be the Denver Broncos with -9.5 and -110, for example. So, you need them to win by 10 or more points to win $100 on a $110 bet.
On the opposite side, you´ll see the other teams listed with +9.5 and typically with the same odds of -110. If you bet on this underdog then you’re hoping to see them either win or else lose by fewer than 10 points. This means a point spread is easier to win with an underdog than the money line, as you win even if they lose the game by a small margin.
The total bet is next, and this is an interesting option if you aren’t sure who might win but think that you know pretty much how the game will go in terms of points. That’s because this is a wager where you’re looking to work out whether the total number of points scored will be over or under a certain number.
If the number is set at 46.5 for a Broncos vs Patriots game then it doesn’t matter for the purposes of your wager who wins the game. You want to see 46 or fewer points scored if you choose the under option, or at least 47 if you went for the over bet. This means you need to concentrate on whether you think it will be a tight game or a high-scoring affair, rather than trying to work out who might win.

Parlays are extremely popular with football fans because they’re exciting and also give the chance to rack up big wins. These are wagers with various elements added onto a single bet slip, meaning that you’re dependent upon all of your selections being correct. Even one game that doesn’t go the way you expected is enough to run your parlay.
Carrying out NFL betting in Colorado with parlays is simple, as you just need to add each element to the bet slip and check how much you would win if they all work out perfectly. NFL parlay bets can be made up of two bets or as many more than this as you want to add. By adding on more elements your odds increase but it also becomes more difficult to win.
Props are wagers where you predict a certain part of the game, which could be the number of points scored, the number of touchdowns, or the total number of passing yards, among other things. This means that your bet isn’t affected by anything else, such as who wins the game. It’s an interesting type of wager for someone who has studied the teams and thinks that they know how a particular aspect of the game will go.
Props are typically split into team props and player props. This means that you can place a bet on the overall team’s stats or on what a specific player will do. In the case of the Broncos, you might want to wager on the number of yards thrown by Russell Wilson or the number of rushing yards by one of the running backs and so on.
Next, futures are interesting bets where you look to work out the outcome of a game or tournament that isn’t going to take place for some time, With Colorado NFL betting, the Super Bowl is the best example of this, as many fans like to wager on this game before they even know for sure which teams will be taking part.
For example, you can bet now on the Super Bowl LVIII, almost a year in advance. This is a good example of futures betting, as the Broncos are at generous odds of between +3000 and +4500 on some sportsbooks. Yet, a lot will happen between now and February 11, 2024, when this game takes place at the Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada. So those odds could look extremely generous by then, or they might seem too low, depending on whether Denver has a good draft and what their luck with injuries is like.

Live Betting on NFL in Colorado
You don’t always need to place your football bets so far in advance. Live betting is one of the most thrilling ways of following a game, as you wager while the game takes place. This means that the odds fluctuate as the game swings one way then the other, and you need to take into account what’s happening out on the field before placing your bets.
You might also be able to cash out your winnings early, which is sometimes available when you’re in a strong position but your win isn’t yet confirmed. Let’s imagine you’ve bet on the Broncos to beat the Patriots and they’re currently ahead of their rivals but facing a final few minutes of pressure as the Patriots attempt to get the touchdown that would put them ahead. Rather than simply hoping that things work out well, you might decide to cash out early if the amount on offer suits you.
Colorado NFL Betting Tips
How can you make the most of the opportunity to bet on football games in Colorado? Well, you’ve covered most of the basics here by understanding the way to get started and what a Colorado football betting line covers. The next step is to work out what game to bet on, and the exact wager to make.
It’s important not to simply bet on your favorite team out of loyalty. Look at the latest form and try to work out how injuries, weather conditions, or problems behind the scenes will affect the outcome. There’s no need to spend all week researching, but the more you know about the teams the better your chances of correctly predicting what will happen.
Remember to only bet using funds that you know you can afford to lose if you get it wrong. By taking a responsible approach to your football betting, you can enjoy it for longer without any sort of stress. Another great tip is to look out for offers and promotions that you can take advantage of to bet more or to get the likes of a risk-free first bet when you sign up.
Does Colorado Have an NFL Team?
The Denver Broncos play in the AFC West Division of the NFL, and the franchise has a history that goes back to 1960. Their home stadium is Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, where a capacity crowd of 76,125 can watch the games.
The early years weren’t very successful for the Broncos, but since the 1970s they’ve become one of the most powerful NFL teams, winning eight AFC Championships and three Super Bowls. A look at the former players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame lets us see some of the greatest names of the team’s past, with John Elway, Shannon Sharpe, and Floyd Little among those on the list.
At the time of writing, the Broncos have just come off of a poor 2022 season where new QB Russell Wilson failed to lead them to a winning season. They’ll be looking to improve on their 5-12 record in 2023 and make it to the playoffs for the first time in seven years.
How to Watch the NFL in Colorado
Going to the Empower Field at Mile High is clearly the best way to watch a Broncos game with a great atmosphere, but what if you can’t do this every time? The good news is that there are various ways to watch football games now. The games are split over several networks, with CBS, Amazon Prime Video, ESPN, NBC, Fox and the NFL Network all showing different games.
