Can't Bet UConn Games From Connecticut

Connecticut becomes yet another state to legalize sports betting that prohibits wagering on in-state schools.  But there are still websites accessible that allow those in Connecticut to bet on UConn games.  BetOnline is one such company.  They also offer a generous welcome bonus (max bonus $1000). BetOnline is heading into their 25th year in business.  They will NEVER report your winnings.


Connecticut offers a bit of a twist on the in-state college exclusion.  While you cannot bet on single games, you are permitted to wager on an entire series.  This appears to be a way of addressing the potential for fixing - or throwing - a single game.

It is considered to be the largest expansion of gambling in Connecticut history, the state House of Representatives voted for a comprehensive package that would allow sports betting and online gambling for the first time in the state. 

Unless you are using a site like BetOnline where the minimum age to gamble is 18, sites licensed in Connecticut will require gamblers to be 21 or older.

UConn Absolutely Annihilates the Zags in Elite Eight, Then Miami

UConn has been impressive both straight up (29-8) and Against The Spread (25-11-1) this season and they just keep on covering.  Their 82-54 win over Gonzaga demonstrated why they've been so huge for gamblers this season.

The Huskies won nine of 10 games before falling 70-68 to Marquette in the Big East tournament semifinals.  They would go on to down Arkansas in their Sweet 16 game 88-65 before crushing mighty Gonzaga.

The fourth-seeded Huskies won their four NCAA Tournament games by an average of 22.5 points, including three by more than 20 before taking on Miami

"Just sticking to our script and doing what we do every single game," UConn guard Andre Jackson Jr. said. "We have the best coaching staff in the country. These guys get us ready for every game. The scouting reports are always on point."

Jordan Hawkins scored 20 points against the Zags.

The win came the same day UConn's women's team failed to advance to the Elite Eight for the first time since 2008.

UConn faced off against Miami in the Final Four and took care of them with a double digit win.

They will be seeking their 5th championship when they face off against SDSU as a -7.5 favorite.

UConn has been absent from the Big Dance since 2019.  They've only make that one appearance in the last 12 years.
