As online sports betting becomes more and more legal throughout the United States, we can add another one the “legal” column.

That state is Connecticut.

Legal sports betting was signed into law by Gov. Ned Lamont on May 27, 2021.

Fast-forward to today and Connecticut sports betting is now live after a seven-day soft launch period.

Now that sports betting is legal in Connecticut, let’s look at some of the best odds the state has to offer out of the gate at FanDuel and SugarHouse.

These sportsbooks will offer odds on all your favorite leagues including College Football, College Basketball, MLB, and what we are looking at today, the NFL.

FanDuel: Chicago Bears (+13.5; -110) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-13.5; -110)

Those in Connecticut spent many years fawning over the New England Patriots and now Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, so let’s look at the state’s former Golden Boy.

Heading into this game, FanDuel Sportsbook is in a similar realm as competitors with a 13.5-point spread.

DraftKings Sportsbook has the same spread, whereas SugarHouse is at 13.

Looking at this game, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be at home, but they have injury issues in the secondary with the newest signee cornerback Richard Sherman on the sidelines for a little while because of a pulled hamstring.

The Bears haven’t exactly been eclectic this season, but with rookie quarterback Justin Fields getting more reps and having wide receivers such as Darnell Mooney and Allen Robinson in the fold, 13 is a lot of points.

When it comes to a bet, the Bears with the points at -110 is the wager.

But, if you feel like this is a risky bet to make, don’t worry.

FanDuel likes to give new players a risk-free shot at wagering.

On top of their live betting, cash out, and odds boost features, FanDuel offers new players a risk-free bet of up to $1,000. This means that you can deposit and wager up to $1,000 and if your wager loses, you will receive the funds back in site credit.

Sugarhouse: Chicago Bears (+13; -109) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-13; -112)

Although the spread here is 0.5 points different, the Bears are still where we’d lean in terms of a bet. Of course, the 13.5 gives that extra bit of protection, getting closer to an even 14.

However, if you like the Buccaneers side, this is obviously the site to wager on.

If any coach can make Robinson devoid of value against a bad secondary, it’s Bears head coach Matt Nagy.

Depending on your personal feelings, this could be an opportunity to double down on your wager.

At Sugarhouse Sportsbook, players can get a deposit match up to $250 by using the promo code “250MATCH” during sign-up, on top of their live betting, odds boost, and cash out features.

With this, you can take your wager and double it after receiving this excellent welcome bonus.

What makes this deposit match welcome bonus so great is that the wagering requirement is just 1x the bonus money.

This means that, if you wish to withdraw the bonus funds you receive, you simply need to wager the amount of the welcome bonus just once on the site.

For example, if you deposit $100, get $100 in bonus money, you just need to place $100 in bets at SugarHouse in order to gain access to the $100 bonus you received.
