Other promotions at FanDuel Colorado

It’s always worthwhile to keep an eye on the “Promotions page at FanDuel (and emails, too). There are always offers and incentives going on, which change as various sporting events occur. 

Here’s a look at some of the promos at FanDuel that you’ll be able to enjoy throughout the year:

  • Multi-Sport Parlay Insurance: Whatever sport you enjoy betting on, this offer could be right for you. Place a parlay, across one or more games, with five or more selections. If one of the picks loses, you’ll receive your stake back as a free bet. This offer applies to all wagers of up to $25 (Any wager of more than $25 will award only the max $25.).
  • Keep the Cash: Occasionally, FanDuel will give you a chance to win $1 million in cash. You’ll have to answer yes or no to a series of sporting event-related questions based on an upcoming game. Distribute your money across each one and, at the end of the 20 questions, whatever money remains is yours.
  • Close Loss Insurance: If you bet on the moneyline in an NFL game and your team loses by 6 points or less, you’ll receive your stake back as a free bet of up to $50.
  • College Hoops Bonus: For every point that your chosen team wins by, you can receive $3 in site credits. To qualify, you’ll need to place a moneyline wager of at least $25.

  • Odds Boosts: Look out for odds boosts across a range of sports. You’ll see the original and new odds on selected events, which gives you the chance to take advantage of these higher odds.

The promotions at FanDuel are seasonal, so more sports will be added into the mix as the calendar changes.

Is FanDuel legal in Colorado?

Yes, FanDuel is completely legal and licensed in Colorado. It has a temporary internet sports betting operator license to do business as a Colorado online sportsbook.

In addition, its partnership with Twin River allows FanDuel to open its doors for anyone inside Colorado’s borders.

To be able to place a sports bet in Colorado, you’ll need to be at least 21 years or older. You’ll also need to be physically present in the state. 

Get around the FanDuel sports betting app

To place a wager at FanDuel Sportsbook in Colorado, you’ll need the FanDuel sports betting app on your mobile device. 

You can download the app by visiting FanDuel’s website using your iPhone or Android smartphone. FanDuel will recognize the device you are using and take you to the correct download option.

The Android app is downloaded directly from the FanDuel website (Google won’t allow real money betting apps). Though this method is fast and secure, you may need to click warning messages to allow downloads from “unknown sources.”  

The FanDuel app itself is easy to use. 

In the top-right hand corner, you’ll find your account info, along with the all-important current balance on display. Immediately beneath, you’ll find links to all the significant available leagues, as well as the “Live” link (that takes you to all the in-play events).

Beneath this horizontal menu bar is where you’ll find all the betting action. By default, the most “popular” events of the day are here. You can navigate to the other events using the menu bar. 

On each of the leading markets, you’ll find the list of point spreads, moneylines and totals, with the “More Wagers” leading to additional markets. You can also click on the “Live” and “Upcoming” tabs to display those menus.

At the bottom of the app, you’ll find another menu bar. Here, you’ll find the home button, an A-Z option of every sport and additional account options.

Bet types available at FanDuel Colorado

If you’re new to sports or want a refresher, there is a detailed betting guide available on the main FanDuel website. It includes a glossary of betting terms and the market types.

Here are some of the most popular types of bets available at FanDuel:

  • Point Spreads: Also known as “the spread,” this is a market that sees the underdog receive added points/runs/goals to level up the contest, with both sides of the market offering the same -110 odds.
  • Totals: Similar to point spreads, FanDuel will set a line based on the number of points/runs/goals. You have to bet on whether the total with go over or under that line. The sportsbook will aim to set a number with a 50/50 chance of the “over” or “under.”
  • Moneylines: This is a more straightforward wager on which team will win. A heavily favored team will have restrictively short odds, while their opponent will be available at long odds.
  • Parlays: This is where you have to make two or more selections. Every selection needs to win for your wager to pay out. The more choices you pick, the greater the odds. Fortunately, the multisport parlay insurance promotion can ease the pain a little if one leg lets you down (if you make five or more selections).
  • Futures: These are wagers that are posted well ahead of time. As an example, you could place a futures wager in March on the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl.
  • Round Robins: These are a series of parlays within your selections. For example, if you make selections A, B and C, you’ll have three two-team parlays (A+B, A+C and B+C) and a three-team parlay (A+B+C). The beauty of these wagers is that if one leg lets you down, you’ll still have a return, while you’ll still be looking at a big win if all three selections win.
  • Teasers: These are a type of parlay where the spread is moved in your favor (for both point spread and totals bets). The cost of moving the line in your favor sees you receive lower odds than a standard parlay. This is a good option for multileg wagers fans who want more of a chance of winning, even if the payouts are lower.
  • Propositions: Otherwise known as prop bets, these are wagers within a game. For example, you could bet on a football team to score the first touchdown, or to be leading at the end of the first quarter.
  • Live: With live betting, you can bet on the game as it’s happening. It’s an excellent option for those who like to see some of the action first or are just tuning in.

One of the best parts about sports betting is the ability to bet on your favorite local teams. In Colorado that means getting to bet on all the major professional sports as well as the top college ones, too. FanDuel has you covered with everything you could hope to bet on with the local teams:

  • Colorado Avalanche
    • Bet on individual Avalanche and NHL games.

    • Live betting during NHL games.

And depending on your area of expertise or interest, you also can try your hand at more niche sports like table tennis. Either way, you will be able to do it all at FanDuel Sportsbook.

FanDuel Colorado future bets

Sometimes making bets every day can feel like a chore or just simply something you don’t have time for. In that case the sports betting futures market could be right up your alley. Instead of betting on individual games, you can try your skill at making season-long bets based on how you think the various Colorado teams will fare.

  • Colorado Avalanche: Bet on the Avalanche to win the Stanley Cup, Western Conference or Central Division title, as well as team regular season win totals, and MVP and other individual awards.
  • Colorado Rockies: Bet on the Rockies to win the World Series, National League or NL West title, as well as regular season win totals and individual awards.
  • Denver Broncos: Bet on the Broncos to win the Super Bowl, AFC or AFC West title, as well as regular season win totals. Futures wagering is also available for a plethora of individual awards such as MVP, offensive and defensive rookies of the year and more. Betting on individual yardage and touchdown totals for various players across the NFL is available, too.
  • Denver Nuggets: Bet on the Nuggets to win the NBA, Western Conference or Northwest Division title, as well as regular season win totals. Also place futures bets on individual regular season awards such as MVP and rookie of the year.

When it comes to futures betting, don’t feel as if you’re restricted to betting on the home teams. Maybe you’re a Colorado transplant and want to bet on Aaron Rodgers to win the MVP award at +2300. Or you just love the odds on the Seattle Seahawks finishing with the best record in the NFL this season (+2200). Whatever the case might be, FanDuel has you covered.

Futures betting is available for college sports too.

  • Colorado Buffaloes men’s basketball: As of right now, the CU men’s basketball team is the only local squad with odds to win this season’s NCAA Tournament or make the Final Four.

Just like with professional sports, though, you can place bets on any number of teams to win their respective conference titles as well as the national championship in both men’s basketball and football. Currently, FanDuel does not have player futures markets for college athletes.

Other futures markets that typically get a lot of action are tennis, golf and auto racing, with bets available for who will win Grand Slam titles as well as regular season championships in sports like NASCAR.

When making futures bets be sure to understand that the line oftentimes will move based on the number of bets made or based on the moves a team makes. So, if you’re not comfortable with a line, check back in from time to time to see if it moves to a number you consider more favorable. That said, the odds you get will not change once you place your bet.

It’s hard to give a definitive answer on which sportsbook is the best, but FanDuel is high on the list. Not only is its website and app easy to navigate and use, but it offers a ton of great promotions.

One aspect that has set FanDuel apart in terms of promotions is rewarding players with cash instead of free bets. Doing so means bettors are able to make smaller bets or even cash out with their winnings if they so choose.
