The Colorado sports betting scene has slowly been heating up since launching in May 2020, with BetMGM offering some enticing offers and odds for those who live in The Centennial State. While that doesn’t mean a sports gambler needs to only throw down some cash on the franchises and/or players from Colorado, it does mean now’s the time to get in on some of the action — because everyone loves making money, right?
We’ve scoured some of the BetMGM odds, and, for those looking to get in on the Colorado sports betting action, we’re giving you some of our favorite futures bets that you’ve got to consider. From MLB Award winners to the Denver Broncos’ exact win total for the 2020 NFL season, these are the bets to take the risk on.
Trevor Story Will Win The National League MVP (+3000)
Over the past three seasons, Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story’s average season has been .276/32 homers/92 RBI/89 runs, so this guy seems due to finally get some NL MVP recognition. And because he’s surrounded by All-Star teammates Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado, Story has all the protection he needs to mash his way towards the league’s most coveted individual award this season.
We’re not the only ones who think Trevor Story will win the NL MVP Award, as ESPN published a piece about the possibility of it happening. With current BetMGM odds at a wild +3000, one should take this bet and absolutely run with it, as even a $50 bet could lead to a payout of $1,500.
A Western Conference Central Division Team Will Win The Stanley Cup Title (+255)
Last season’s Stanley Cup winner (St. Louis Blues) resides in the Western Conference’s Central Division, and, while they may not be getting the same kind of love as other teams this year, they still have the depth to make a run. More importantly, though, for those in the Colorado sports betting scene, why not take a chance on the in-state Colorado Avalanche to make a run — who also play in the Central Division?
One of the top teams in the conference, the Avalanche have a Hart Trophy finalist in Nathan MacKinnon, and BetMGM has their title odds at +750, meaning they have a legit chance at hoisting Lord Stanley’s Cup this year. Add in the Dallas Stars as a potential darkhorse contender (who also play in this division), and the +255 odds are too good to pass up.
Luka Doncic Will Win The NBA Most Improved Player Award (+500)
It’s hard to believe the Dallas Mavericks’ superstar point guard Luka Doncic has +500 odds on BetMGM to win the NBA Most Improved Player Award. That’s because the second-year player has been record-setting so far this season, becoming the youngest player in NBA history with a 30-point, 20-rebound triple-double in NBA history, and lighting up the league on a nightly basis. Point blank: Doncic’s almost sure to finish in the top-3 in league MVP voting.
While Luka probably won’t win the highest individual award, we have a feeling he could take home the league’s Most Improved Player — because he’s been doing things nobody has ever seen before. The bar was already high for Doncic heading into this season, which could be a disadvantage in voting here, yet his nightly dominance is too much to ignore, so you’ve got to take these odds.
Denver Broncos Win Exactly 10 Wins During 2020 NFL Season (+700)
Although the Denver Broncos haven’t reached the postseason since 2015 when they won the Super Bowl, there’s a lot of optimism surrounding the team in the 2020 NFL season. Yes, they reside in the same division (AFC West) as the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, but the other two teams in the division — the Chargers and Raiders — aren’t nearly as good on paper as Denver is, meaning a 4-2 divisional record is well within reach.
The defense is still loaded with guys like Von Miller and Bradley Chubb, and the offense has a pair of talented runners and new weapons both under center (Drew Lock) and at receiver (Jerry Jeudy), which makes the +700 odds on BetMGM for this team to win exactly 10 games really enticing — especially after winning seven games in 2019.
