Colorado sports betting wagers jump 117% during August Matthew Waters, Legal Sports Report · September 24, 2020 at 7:25 am The Colorado sports betting market hit an important milestone in just its fourth month, with a big boost from an old friend. Handle more than doubled from July to $128.6 million in August. The ramp-up was certainly helped by a generous schedule of sports typically unseen in the month. Surprisingly, one of the top-bet sports of the coronavirus pandemic is sticking around as well. Table tennis ranked fourth in overall handle, beating other sports like golf, soccer, tennis and mixed-martial arts. Gross revenue was $7.5 million for a hold of 5.9%, according to the state report. The next big test for sports betting in Colorado is already under way: September offers the first opportunity for handle from betting on NFL games in the state.
