Popular Sports and Teams to Bet on in Connecticut

Connecticut is in an interesting sport in the sports world, straddling the metropolises of New York and Boston. That means there's twice as many popular teams to beat on when you enter the state. 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. 

In football, the state is evenly split between the New York Jets and 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. The basketball space is even more flooded with the Brooklyn Nets and their superstar lineup as the best chance to win an NBA title this season. However, they might be the least popular of the three teams with a loyal fanbase in Boston behind the Celtics, and there is no doubting the loyalty of New York Knicks fans.

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. 

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.
