Canadians love their sports, and there are a few sporting events that stand out from the rest. UFC betting, ice hockey and even basketball are all popular.
Most popular sport events
- The Stanley Cup
- NBA Playoffs and finals
It will come as no surprise that the top sporting event in hockey-mad Canada is the Stanley Cup. This event is the biggest on the ice hockey calendar and has been run by the National Hockey League since 1893. This event takes place every year and is made up of a number of Canadian and US teams. The teams will go through a series of matches against one another until the number of teams is gradually whittled down to the final. The event takes place at the start of the year with the final usually commencing at the end of May. Betting odds are always available as to whether a Canadian team will win the Cup, so it’s always good to keep an eye out on how things are progressing throughout the year.
Surprisingly, given that Canada is usually seen as the winter sports country, it’s basketball that comes in second on the list of sporting events. And more specifically, it’s the NBA playoffs and finals. Most of us think of the US when it comes to basketball, but Canada is very successful here too. At this time, there’s actually only one Canadian team representing the country – the Toronto Raptors – and on this team, all Canadian hopes rest. Hosted during the spring and summer, this is the best time to get in on the NBA action and watch these athletic stars perform at the top of their game. Head to Toronto and you might actually get to see a home game too and experience the sheer thrill of the event, the crowds and the stars in person.
Odds and tips for online betting
Understanding the odds is very important for success in online sports betting.
Odds for sport
Understanding the odds in a sports betting context is very important if you want to be successful. Essentially what a sports odd tells you is the probability or likelihood of an event occurring. This helps you to then more accurately predict the outcome of a specific event. For example, when rolling a dice there are 6 possible outcomes, which means that there is a 16.67% chance of one specific number landing. If this was written in an odd format such as fractions, it would look like 4/7. However, not all odd values are written as fractions. Some are written as decimals and others in American format. In Canada, the most common format is decimal which means this would be written as 1.5, though you will see the other options too. It’s up to you which you prefer.
When you look at sports odds, you should utilize the information they are telling you in order to make the best betting decisions. As we’ve discussed, you can use the odds to determine the likelihood of an outcome. But you can also use odds to find out how much you will win if that event occurs. For instance, a 9.0 decimal bet is calculated as 9.0 * $10 stake minus the initial $10 stake so you win $80. This is a great way to see whether the odds are worth it for you to try. Don’t forget, the more likely an event is to occur, the smaller the potential payout as the odds will be lower. Understanding all of this will help you pick out the best odds around and give you the most profit.
Tips and tipsters for sport
There’s another great way of getting ahead in sports betting, and that’s in utilizing the information provided by tips given by tipsters. Tipsters are people who have immersed themselves into a particular sport or sports and know a lot about the different teams or players. They are also very good at understanding the different odds and what this can mean to people taking on any of these bets. These tipsters will often look through all the available odds looking for value and when they find it, they will give this information to the public. In some cases, there are bets that are virtually certain and these are called naps. This information is usually also given to punters so that they can make use of it if they want to – of course you don’t have to either.
When it comes to accepting tips in online betting, it is important to not just take everything at face value. You should never take what another person says at face value without checking some of the information first. This means that it is still equally important to do your own research when it comes to the specific sport, event, player or team that you are planning to bet on. For newcomers, tips can be a handy way to get to know how everything works and get a few small wins under your belt. For the majority of punters, though, part of the fun in the win is the journey to get there. In general, we suggest that using a tipster should only be done for a small portion of your bets.
