While Connecticut Online Gambling fans have been following the NFL action without being able to place online sports bets from Connecticut, Oct. 19 will be a momentous date.

On that day, bettors can register for a sportsbook account and place wagers on the action. This includes placing pre-game bets, in-play wagers along with NFL parlays.

NFL Trends So Far

The Los Angeles Chargers, Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills have established themselves as front-runners in the AFC. The Arizona Cardinals are the surprising top dog so far in the NFC, with the defending champs Bucs right there. Green Bay, the LA Rams and Dallas are also playing well.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been awful to start the 2021 NFL season and the Las Vegas Raiders could see their season implode after Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign. The Detroit Lions can't buy a win but it seems like they're close.

Why NFL Trends Can be Helpful and What They Show

NFL trends can be useful for sports betting, especially when you look at points scored. There are plenty of stats available and, as the season wears on, there’s the opportunity to gather more data to understand each side’s overall performance.

Current straight-up trends can be valuable and we recommend starting with these to understand the relative success of home and away teams. It’s also good to see the fate of the favorites compared to the underdogs, while over/under (totals) trends can help you analyze things before a points bet.

NFL Bets CT Sports Bettors Can Make

We’re looking ahead to Week 7, the first week that Connecticut bettors will be able to place online sports bets. The Cleveland Browns are a -6 favorite against the Denver Broncos on Thursday night. The Green Bay Packers are a -7 favorite against Washington. Both are big spreads, but following the trends, might be good bets.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans are expected to play out a high-scoring game, according to the sportsbooks. But taking the under on a 56.5 line could be the play when following the trends. Now, we like the over 48.5 points for the game between the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay.

Place Your Bets From Tuesday

Connecticut customers have the choice between DraftKings, FanDuel and SugarHouse to make bets.

Indeed, you might notice that the three licensed sportsbooks in CT have different odds and they might also provide a welcome bonus and odds boosts when it comes to betting on the NFL.
