Colorado loves its basketball.
Since the launch of legal sports betting in the state, bettors have wagered $606 million on the sport. In May alone, NBA betting in Colorado brought in $86.9 million in handle. This was the fifth-straight month it was the most wagered on sport in the state.
As the NBA Finals between the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns are about to tip off, Colorado online sportsbooks have plenty of odds boosts to get basketball bettors here more excited. Not that they need it, based on betting numbers.
Here is a list of the best odds boosts, promos and prop bets in the state.
Suns moneyline boost for Game 1
DraftKings is offering a Phoenix monyeline boost for Game 1 from -245 to +100. The Suns enter as the favorite in Game 1 and for the series.
The max bet is $25 and expires at 7 p.m. MT. You must select the boost in your betslip before placing the bet to apply the boosted price.
Suns to win by 20 or more
At WilliamHill, this market is boosted to +650. The max bet is $100.
For some context, in its run to the NBA Finals, Phoenix has defeated its opponent by 20 or more points three times. That included a 123-98 win in Game 2 over the Denver Nuggets.
The sportsbook is also “boosting” the Bucks in Game 1 to +300.
Perhaps one betting tip is to take advantage of the DraftKings and WilliamHill boosts.
Devin Booker to record a double-double
There seems to be a theme with these promos, odds boosts and prop bets.
BetMGM continues that with the Suns guard to get a double-double at +700.
There are plenty of other options at the sportsbook to choose from, but this could be the most intriguing of the bunch when it comes to player prop bets.
Bucks to win and score the first basket
To change it up, SporsBetting.com has a fun Milwaukee odds boost.
It’s the Bucks to win and to score the first basket. It was +425, it’s now +475.
The max bet is $50.
Suns to lead at the end of every quarter
This boost from FanDuel is pretty straight forward. This option also hints at a pretty lopsided win for the Suns.
Phoenix to lead at the end of every quarter was +160 at the sportsbook, it’s now +190.
This is also the riskiest of the odds boosts and props listed here.
Will Devin Booker score the first basket?
To cap it off, the SuperBook has a fun boost for the Suns. The best odds are on Booker to score the first basket (including free throws) at +700. It was +600.
The sportsbook is also offering Deandre Ayton to score the first basket at +600 (it was +500). The odds for Booker are slightly better, so you might want to lean that way when it comes to these two boosts.
As the NBA heads into its stretch run, this is the last chance for Colorado to bet on a sport it clearly loves.
