NFL Betting in Canada

nfl canadaWhen you are watching a sport which doesn’t have a Canadian team to pin your hopes one, how do you maintain an interest? The answer is simple really: you have a bet. Despite the NFL’s popularity in Canada, the lack of a local team means that just about every side has some support in Canada. This in turn means that there are a lot of people betting on the NFL.

With a sport as popular as football the betting prospects are almost endless. Every site carries lines on NFL and just about every site has more betting options than the last. We will have a look at how the major betting sites size up against each other, taking into account available markets, odds, live betting and how easy it is for Canadians to get their bet on.

Bet365

On futures alone you can bet on Super Bowl winners, Most Valuable Player, Regular Season Points Scored, Winning Conference, who will win each Conference, Regular Season Wins Match Up, to Win Divisions, which teams will make the Play-Offs, which teams won’t make the play-offs, which division will produce the Super Bowl winners, who will be the Defensive Rookie of the Year, the Offensive Rookie of the Year, who will complete the most passing yards, which player will complete the most rushing yards and receiving yards completion. And that is just for the future markets!

There is also an extensive line on individual games including the spread, over/under, game totals and Moneylines. It’s a fantastic variety of betting options. Bet365 has a great in play betting service and a comprehensive mobile betting site accessible via a great app. Needless to say, Canadian customers are well attended to with plenty of withdrawal and deposit options accepting Canadian Dollars.
