Connecticut Sports Betting Promos & Bonus Codes

August 23, 2022

Sports betting was legalized in Connecticut back in September 2021. One retail sportsbook opened at the time and online sports betting began operating in October of the same year.

Connecticut may not have a professional team of its own but that does not mean sports fans in the area can not support their favorite teams from other states. Due to Connecticut's proximity to both Boston and New York, sports fans may root for a variety of professional clubs.

Here are the current promos for September 2022.

Popular Sports and Teams to Bet on in Connecticut

Connecticut may not have a team in any major sports league but that does not mean the residents can not root on their minor league teams.

The only in-state teams are the local colleges, but Connecticut does not allow betting on Connecticut college sports unless they are playing in a tournament with at least four teams (i.e. the NCAA Tournament). So that means there is no betting on the UConn Huskies basketball teams until the postseason.

Connecticut is pinched between two of the biggest metropolis in the U.S., New York in the north and Boston in the south. The state may not have any professional sports team to play in major leagues, but Connecticut can pick their favorite team from the two giant cities.

From MLB, New York brought forth the Yankees and Boston’s the Red Sox. In the NFL, there are the New York Jets and Boston’s New England Patriots.

Football

In football, the state is evenly split between the New York Jets and New York Giants, the dominant teams in the Big Apple, and the New England Patriots from the Boston area. The Jets and Giants have been afterthoughts in the NFL for much of the past five years, but the Patriots have been a consistent winner over the last two decades.

Basketball

The NBA tournament recently concluded its 2022 season with the Golden State Warriors winning 4 out of 6 final games against the Boston Celtics played from June 2 - 16 at the TD Garden, Boston, MA. The Warriors win the last three games in the final before taking the trophy home.

Baseball

For baseball, Connecticut sports fans again split their allegiances three ways. There are the Boston Red Sox fans and those who support the opposite side of the most-heated rivalry in the sport, the New York Yankees. Then there are the New York Mets fans who are hopeful the franchise is finally turning the corner again.

As the Boston Americans in 1901, the Red Sox have been a part of the city ever since. Between 1903 and 2018, they won nine World Series championships,  making them one of the most successful teams in baseball history.

Hockey

The only other active sport from the Big Four is the NHL, and there are three teams from which to choose for Connecticut sports fans. There are the New York Rangers, who play in the heart of Manhattan at historic Madison Square Garden. There are also the Boston Bruins, one of the most consistent NHL franchises of the past 15 years, and the New York Islanders, who have advanced to the conference finals in each of the past two seasons.
