Every time you place a bet you are pitting your sports knowledge against the sportsbooks, who have years of experience setting odds and lines across a range of sports. To give yourself the best chance of success, your best tactic is to go with what you know. Most sports bettors stick with the sports and teams they know best to give them the best chance of beating the odds. It means the most popular sports in Canada are also the most popular sports to bet on.
The top sports to bet on in Canada include football, hockey, basketball, and baseball. Betting on soccer – especially the English Premier League (EPL) – is also growing in popularity across North America. Sportsbooks also offer odds across a wide range of other sports, but the ‘big four’ and soccer are the sports that attract the most betting activity online.
