More Colorado bettors picking Chiefs to win Super Bowl than any other team (including Broncos)

Smart betting or lack of loyalty?

The Broncos kick off the season tonight against Jon Gruden’s Antonio Brown-less Raiders. While Denver fans will be rooting for a playoff run under quarterback Joe Flacco, the majority of Colorado bettors are leaving loyalties aside and putting their money on … AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl this year.

According to data by BetOnline, an online betting platform, the Chiefs have more states backing them to win the Super Bowl than any other team, based on the number of Super Bowl bets broken down by team in each state.

Bettors in the state of Georgia are putting money on their home-state Falcons to win the Super Bowl more than any other team. Maryland has more bets on the Ravens to win the Super Bowl than any other team. Minnesota bettors are loyal to the Vikings — even Michigan bettors are betting on the Lions; Ohio bettors favor the Browns; and Wisconsin gamblers like the Packers.

One state is seeing the most Super Bowl bets on the Broncos than any other team — and that’s Wyoming.

The takeaway for bettors in Colorado might be that when it comes to gambling money, the mind is more powerful than the heart — as it should be.
