⭐ SI Sportsbook
SI Sportsbook launched in Colorado just prior to the NFL season in August 2021. To compete with other Colorado sports betting apps, SI offers an okay bonus and some competitive markets. One advantage SI has over competitors in Colorado gambling is the brand recognition it has and a massive database of website users, although the number of subscribers has declined in recent years.
⭐ SI Sportsbook Bonus
SI Sportsbook bonus is a free bet offer. Customers who make their first bet with $10 or more get an additional $50 in free bets. This is not the best offer in Colorado betting, but is interesting enough to attract some casual bettors. You must wager your free bets within 7 days of receiving them.

|⚾ Minimum Bet||$10|

SI Sportsbook offers some promotions for their customers, which is great to see from a new sportsbook. As most operators, SI offers boosted odds for some games, but also allow you to build your own single-game parlays. Other current promotions include:
- Three & Win Place a 3-leg parlay worth $25; if you win, you get a $20 free bet (valid Friday through Sunday)
- Perfect 10 Participate in a contest to win $10,000; predict all 10 football games correctly and win the top prize, or $1 in free bets for all the correct results
⭐ SI Gambling
Sports Illustrated is known for their extensive sports content, but they also provide plenty of betting content on their site. In fact, they launched a gambling issue in August 2021, in anticipation of the sportsbook site. In addition to gambling, they offer daily fantasy sports tips. The community who already follow SI betting news and tips, will probably check out the new sportsbook as well.
⭐ Sportsbook App
SI Sportsbook App is available for download at the App Store and the Google Play Store. The betting app provides the same features as the website, so you can place your wagers on the go. Note that in order to make sure the geolocation technology places you inside the Colorado state borders, you should connect to Wi-Fi when using the app.
⭐ Betting Markets
The SI platform is now available, and the following sports are be offered at the sportsbook. Only industry giants like DraftKings and FanDuel also offer several small sports, but SI Sportsbook has a couple rarer sports like volleyball.
Colorado Sports Teams
Many bettors want to bet on their home teams, and Colorado has plenty to choose from. As the state hosts professional teams in all five major leagues as well as a few top ranking college teams, bettors can place loads of bets on their favorites. If SI ends up partnering with one or more of these teams, you can also expect to see some favorable lines or promotions.
- Denver Broncos (NFL)
- Colorado Rockies (MLB)
- Colorado Avalance betting (NHL)
- Denver Nuggets (NBA)
- Colorado Rapids (MLS)
⭐ Bet Types
Most betting sites offer the same betting options, but SI Sportsbook is currently lacking in this department. SI currently only provides moneyline, point spread and totals bets for many of the games. But since they offer the single game parlays, we can expect them to throw in prop bets soon.
Live betting, or in-play betting, has become one of the most popular ways of wagering on sports. Bettors can place their wagers during the game in real time, benefiting from seeing the flow of the action. In order to attract bettors, Sports Illustrated also offers live betting for several sports.
⭐ Online Banking
SI Sportsbook has several deposit and withdraw methods for their customers. Most deposits are instant, but withdrawals can take some time depending on the method used.
|Credit Cards (Visa, Discover, Mastercard||Yes||No|
⭐ Is SI Sportsbook Worth It?
Maybe. Sports Illustrated is finally entering into the sports betting market, starting in Colorado. Whether they expand to other states remains TBD. The Centennial state already hosts 20+ sportsbooks that compete for a limited number of bettors. SI’s well-known brand will no doubt be an asset in the beginning, but currently their bonus is not the best in the state, all links on their site don’t work, and the prop bets are mostly missing. But we will give them the benefit of the doubt and wait before judging them too harsly.
