Colorado bettors jumped at the chance to bet on all four major professional sports last month, boosting sports wagering in the state to more than $200 million, the Colorado Department of Revenue reported Friday.
Betting on baseball, football, basketball and hockey totaled nearly $135 million in September, nearly two-thirds of the $207.7 million total. That total was up 61% from August. All four major sports usually aren’t playing at the same time in September, but the end of the basketball and hockey seasons were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Parlays and combination bets, most likely wagered on professional sports, made up another 13.5% of the total with the rest split by table tennis, tennis, soccer, college football, golf, mixed martial arts and other sports.
