Watching sport is in itself highly entertaining, but placing a bet or two every now and again can serve to make it even more entertaining! At Betiton™ Canada, you will be able to find a wide variety of sports to bet on.
Whether you are a big soccer fan, enjoy a bit of basketball, get your buzz from American football, or love nothing more than watching some good old hockey, we believe that we have what you are looking for.
When it comes to online sports betting, we provide our players with a sportsbook that’s packed with a wide variety of markets and very competitive odds. Feel free to check out our sportsbook to see for yourselves!
If you are new to the world of online sports betting and sportsbooks then you will probably have no clue of how to place a sports bet. If you are an experienced sports bettor, then you will probably know what we are about to tell you. Below we have outlined the basic steps that anyone needs to go through in order to place a sports bet at Betiton™ the Canadian sportsbook:
We spoke before about the concept of odds and how they are provided alongside Canadian betting markets by bookmakers. But what are they exactly? In the simplest of terms, odds are numbers or configurations of numbers that show you two things:
Being able to ‘read’ odds, that is, understand how they indicate these two things, is important for two reasons: firstly, you should always know what chance you stand of winning. Secondly, you should always know how much you will win.
When going to make a sports bet, you will need to keep these two things in mind when assessing which bets to make. Should you make a secure bet that hardly pays? Or should you take a risk for a larger payment? These are important questions to keep in mind.
Bookmakers will show you the odds in either of 3 ways: decimal, fractional, or American odds. These odds formats will show you the same things but in different ways, which means that using one format over another is simply a matter of preference.
However, the general rule of thumb to remember is that the higher the odds, the more you will be paid but the less likely the event will occur. On the other hand, the lower the odds, the lower the payment but the higher the chances of success.
All of the odds formats we mentioned can be found on our sportsbook at Betiton™, so you can pick the one that you find yourself most comfortable with. If, however, you are unaware of how odds work, the next section should help you.
As we already said, different odds formats will show you the same two things but in different ways. The format of choice for Canadian bookmakers is the decimal odds; however, we will show you how the other formats work as well.
Decimal odds work via a series of numbers and decimal places. The lowest possible number in decimal odds is 1, which is a 100% chance of success. Anything above 1 will be less and less likely. So, the higher the number, the lower the likelihood.
However, the higher the number, the higher the payout. Calculating the payout is easy: multiply your bet by the decimal odds you are given and subtract your bet from the final result. So, let us say that you are betting $10 on odds of 2.5.
The calculation would look something like this:
Therefore, the payout of the bet is $15.
Fractional odds work via fractions, which may seem complicated at first but they are easier to understand than you may think. There is a simple trick that you can use to understand how these odds work.
The higher the numbers on the right are, the lower the odds will be. Conversely, the higher the numbers on the left are, the higher the odds will be. Let us look at a couple of examples that demonstrate this principle.
Odds of 1/6, for example, show us that the probability of the event happening is 85.7%. Switching the numbers to 6/1 will indicate a probability of 14.3%. If you keep in mind this trick, you will get a rough understanding of the chances of success.
Finally, to calculate the payout, you can take the right numbers to mean what your bet will be, whilst the left numbers show you how much you will be paid. For example, odds of 1/6 show you that for every $6 bet, your payout will be $1.
On the other hand, odds of 6/1 show you the exact opposite: for every $1 you wager, your payout will be $6.
American odds use a series of numbers, generally three-digit numbers, usually to indicate either 1) how much you need to wager to get a payout of $100 or 2) how much you will receive when you make a wager of $100.
This depends on whether the numbers are positive or negative. Positive numbers will show you how much you will get paid for a wager of $100. So, for example, odds of 300 indicate that you will get $300 for a bet of $100.
Negative numbers, on the other hand, show you how much you will need to bet to get a payout of $100. So, if you bet on odds of -300, you will need to bet $300 to get a return of $100. At the same time, these odds indicate probabilities.
Whilst understanding odds is imperative in the world of sports betting, you can also gain an edge in your betting game by consulting tips. Tips are suggestions given by tipsters on who you should bet on, whether a team, a player, etc.
Tipsters are people who spend a lot of their time analyzing player performances, team compositions, and other such statistics that help them make predictions on which teams, players, competitors, etc., will stand the best chance of winning.
Moreover, tipsters will look around the internet to find the best odds and markets to suggest to bettors. As such, tipsters are quite knowledgeable in sports. However, whilst their advice can be helpful, it should be taken with a pinch of salt.
After all, tipsters do not know everything and they can easily miss something that you can pick up. Which is why we suggest that all of our bettors do their own research at the same time as looking up odds.
We also highly encourage our players to do so, so that they can come to their own conclusions of what they should bet on. However, players should also keep in mind that nobody can ever correctly predict the outcome of a match.
There is actually a very easy way of looking up tips, and what simpler way is there than a basic Google search? Hardly anything, which is exactly what makes looking up tips is so easy as all you have to do is Google them.
Looking up tips on Google, or any other search engine, will give you a slew of tips. Because of this, it may be hard to decide which tipster is the most reliable, which is why doing your own research is recommended.
Finally, the best tips that we can give our players is to stick to a budget; to never bet more than they can afford to lose; to stay healthy, hydrated and safe; and to make time for other important things in life, like family and friends.
Two decades or so ago, when you wanted to place a bet on sports, you would have only been able to place your cash on the result of the match and the bet had to be placed before the event began.
However, things have come on in leaps and bounds since then and there are now more online markets than you can shake the proverbial stick at. This is just a very small selection of the markets that you will encounter at Betiton™. Overall, you will find more than 3,000 markets for just under 30 different sports.
If you are new to the concept of online sports betting, you might be wondering what betting markets are. To put it simply, betting markets are the available wagers that can be placed on a sport’s events.
These markets can be on anything within the sport, so long as the bookmakers know there is a demand for them. Bookmakers will provide a number of markets, each one with its own condition that is required for bets to be successful.
At the same time, bookmakers will provide these markets with what is known as “odds.” We will explain odds in more detail in another section. Punters will be glad to know that they can find hundreds of markets available on our sportsbook.
Below you can find a handful of examples of the different online sport markets you will find at Betiton™ Sportsbook for Canadian Bettors:
|Betting Market||Example Sport|
|Number of rounds in bout||Boxing|
|Who will win the coin toss||Cricket|
|Who will win the first map||eSports|
|Most 180s scored||Darts|
|Total goals scored||Football|
|Winner of Wimbledon||Tennis|
|Winner of race||Tennis|
When you are placing bets on sportsbooks, there are many different types of bets that you can choose from. If you are new to the world of sport betting, then you should do yourself a favor and familiarize yourself with the common ones.
So, what are the common ones that you will regularly find at a sportsbook? Well, we have briefly explained them for you below.
N.B. When you are making a bet that has plenty of different selections, then the total cost of your bet is calculated differently. The total value will be the wager that you choose to place, multiplied by the number of different selections that you have.
For example: if you place a Goliath bet and you decide to stick $1 in the stake box, your wager will actually cost you $247.
Not only do we provide you with more sports than you can watch, but as part of our extensive collection of odds and markets, we provide our players with the chance to bet on the biggest sporting events. These events include leagues, championships, and cups from all the sports betting markets we have available.
This includes huge tournaments such as:
Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. This fantastic game was created by the English and spread around the globe. Many Canadians love betting on soccer and there are plenty who support teams that compete in England’s Premier League.
At Betiton™, Canadian soccer fans will be able to find markets for the world’s best leagues. These include the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, and the Bundesliga. Moreover, we offer competitive odds and markets for all the major European soccer tournaments, including the Europa League and the Champions League.
You can also find odds and markets for international tournaments such as UEFA European Championship, UEFA Nations League, and the FIFA World Cup. In short, when it comes to soccer, Betiton™ have you fully covered.
|Event||Date Held||Previous Winner|
|Premier League||12th September 2020 – 23rd May 2021||Liverpool F.C|
|Champions League||8th August – 29th May 2021||Liverpool F.C|
|FIFA World Cup||21st November 2022 – 18th December 2022||France|
|UEFA European Championship||11th June 2021 – 11th July 2021||Portugal|
As well as soccer, Canadians love their American football. The entertaining NFL has a very big fan base in Canada with teams such as the Minnesota Vikings; the New England Patriots; the San Francisco 49ers; and the Green Bay Packers being some of the more popular teams.
Betiton™ knows just how much Canadians love this sport which is why we provide you with markets and odds for all the games that are played— including the Super Bowl, of course.
As well as the match winner, you can place online bets on whether there will be over or under a certain number of points scored. You can also give one of the teams a handicap if you like, which is something that can help to improve your odds.
Another sport that Canadians love is basketball. This is one of the most fast-paced games around, so there is always a lot of entertainment to be had when watching a game. However, it becomes even more entertaining when there is money on the line.
If you like to bet on basketball, you will be glad to hear that we provide odds and markets for the NBA—the most popular basketball league in the world. We also offer markets on other leagues, like the EuroLeague.
Just like with American football, Canadians can bet on outcomes such as the match winner, whether the total number of points scored will be above or below a certain number, and you can also give a team a handicap.
|Event||Date Held||Previous Winner|
|NBA||December 22, 2020 – July 22, 2021||Los Angeles Lakers|
|EuroLeague||1st October – 9th April 2021||CSKA Moscow|
|FIBA Basketball World Cup||25th Aug 2023 – 10th Sep 2023||Spain|
|Basketball at the Summer Olympics||23rd Jul 2021 – 8th Aug 2021||United States|
When it comes to MMA (mixed martial arts), UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) is up there as one of the most popular. There are plenty of Canadians out there who love nothing better than to sit down and watch some skilled combat.
We at Betiton™ know that Canadians have a passion for UFC which is why we provide a wide variety of markets and competitive odds for it. Markets that you can bet on include whether the fight will go the distance, what round a fighter will win in, the method of victory, and who will win the fight.
It would truly be silly of us to forget about Canada’s sport of choice: hockey! Whilst the sport is popular in many countries around the world, its popularity is most pronounced in nowhere else but Canada!
Hockey is so popular in Canada, in fact, that it is one of its two de jure—that is, according to the law—national sports, the other being lacrosse. Hockey is so integral to Canadian culture, that it is said that the modern sport was developed in Canada.
Of course, then, our Canadian players will know better than we do about this sport! However, for those that are not in the know, the biggest tournament in hockey is the National Hockey League (NHL), which is also one of the wealthiest league in the world.
Whilst the NHL is definitely the most important hockey league in the world, there are other leagues that are also worth watching in Canada. These include the Kontinental Hockey League, the Swedish Hockey League, and the Liiga.
|Event||Date Held||Previous Winner|
|National Hockey League||23rd Jul 2021 – 8th Aug 2021||Tampa Bay Lightning|
|Kontinental Hockey League||2nd Sep 2020 – 27th Feb 2021||CSKA Moscow|
|Swedish Hockey League||Sep 2020 – Mar 2021||Frölunda HC|
|Liiga||1st Oct 2020 – 30th Mar 2021||HPK|
The final sport is another sport that really captures the admiration of Canucks, which is none other than baseball. Despite the fact that baseball is most often associated with Americans and the US, the sport is also popular outside of it.
In fact, there are plenty of Canadians who thoroughly enjoy this sport! The biggest tournaments in baseball are those that fall under Major League Baseball, the highest organization of baseball in the United States.
These are the National League and the American League. Whilst the US offers the largest baseball tournaments in the world, there are plenty of other tournaments that should also serve as a pretty exciting spectacle of sport.

However, whilst our loyalty club is far from exclusive, the best benefits are reserved for players who have proven themselves truly loyal. Our loyalty club is divided into 7 levels, with the highest levels offering the best benefits.

If you choose this option, then we will shut your account down and return any money that you had in it. If you would like to set up an exclusion period, you can do so by getting in touch with one of our customer care agents.
Furthermore, all our players can put time limits for their gambling sessions—once the time limit has been reached, you will be logged out of the account. These responsible gambling features are available at our casino as well. Once again, if you would like to use this feature, just get in touch with customer care.
Sports betting is the activity of playing money on the chance of something happens in a sports game. There are many possible things and sports that bettors can wager on. In fact, bettors can bet on soccer, American football, hockey, baseball, and many more.
When it comes to what bettors can actually bet on, there are numerous such things. For example, they can bet on how many goals will be scored in a game of soccer; or which team will go on to win the NHL.
Betting online means that you are betting from home or whatever other location you happen to find yourself in. On the other hand, betting on location is when you are at the sporting event and make a bet using an online bookie.
Sports betting odds are calculated by bookmakers, the people who actually offer wagers on sports. They calculate the odds by studying the previous performances of a particular team, for example, and guess how they might perform against another team, whose performance the bookmakers would have also studied.
You cannot place sports bets without first creating an account and verifying it. This is because you cannot make real money bets without first registering to our platform.
Placing a sports bet is not as complicated as you may think it is. After creating your account on Betiton™, deposit some money into your bankroll. Afterwards, go on our sportsbook and feel free to browse through the available sports.
Choose a sport that you prefer and have a look through the available markets. Once you have looked through what we offer, select any markets that you would like to bet on. These will come up on the betting slip. Adjust how much you would like to bet on these markets, and then click “PLACE BETS.” All that is left to do is have fun!
