  • Sports betting has arrived in Colorado, and even with American sports on pause, you can start now.
  • Here's everything you need to know, from how to make your first deposit to what Broncos futures bets to make early.

Now that sports betting is officially legal in Colorado, you probably have some questions on how to bet, where to bet and what to bet on. Luckily The Action Network is the one-stop shop to navigate everything on Day 1.

Colorado Sports Betting Basics

If you’re completely new to sports betting and don’t know where to start, you can check this four-step guide with the basics you need to get set up. There’s also a quick FAQ guide for questions like “How old do I have to be to bet?” and “Do I have to pay taxes on my winnings?”

Best Colorado Sports Betting Sites & Apps

Colorado’s sports betting legislation, which passed in November 2019, is mobile-friendly, meaning you don’t need to be in a sportsbook to place your bets. Many books will be going live over the next few months, but four books will be live as of May 1 (DraftKings, BetRivers, BetMGM and FanDuel).

What Sports You Can Bet On In Colorado

As far as what you can bet on, there aren’t any major American sports active at the moment — although futures odds are still available — but Colorado is one of three states allowing bets eSports. Check out what leagues are being offered and get a primer on betting popular games like Counter Strike: Global Offensive and Overwatch.

Impact of COVID-19 on Colorado Sports Betting

The global pandemic due to the outbreak of COVID-19 has turned the entire world upside down. While it hasn’t stopped sports betting from launching, it has impacted when bettors will be allowed to go to sportsbooks in person.

It has also impacted sports bars and restaurants all over the state, but The Action Network is hoping to help in a small way. You can help us do that by joining our Colorado Sports Memory contest where one local sports bar could win $3,000.
