Online bookmakers in Canada
Owing to such a hectic schedule, online bookmakers in Canada will often only provide odds for fixtures taking place within the next 24/48 hours. Although it is possible to wager on each team to win their respective conference at any point during the regular season, betting on individual matches weeks in advance, is not always possible. If a key player picks up an injury on a Sunday and his side are also playing on Tuesday, this will have a detrimental effect on the betting markets and this is something the bookmakers will need to take into consideration when pricing the game up.

Betting on the NBA Play-Offs
Many NBA fans in Canada enjoy wagering throughout the regular season, although the excitement is ramped up a notch when the NBA Play-Offs get underway. 16 teams will take part in the end-of-season event and betting markets are available at the beginning of the season with odds on each side to make the cut. The divisional winners will automatically progress and they will be joined by the best of the rest (five sides who have the best records despite not winning their conference).
All of the usual markets are available for each of the play-off matches with money-line, points spread and points total all available with online bookmakers in Canada. At the beginning of the play-offs, series winner markets will become available allowing bettors to predict which side will come out on top. Correct Score betting for the series is also another popular way of wagering and each round is played in a best of seven format.
Many online bookmakers will also stream NBA Play-Off matches with live betting on these games extremely popular due to the possibility of sudden momentum changes.
NBA Finals Betting
The Play-Offs will eventually whittle down 16 teams to just two. The pair will compete in the NBA Finals and this is a huge betting event in Canada. All bookmakers will offer hundreds of markets on this series of games with all of the usual odds placed alongside the possibility of betting on a range of props. These usually involve predicting a particular player’s performance or correctly predicting how many points a team will score during each period of the game.
Look out for the special offers, bonuses and promotions in conjunction with the NBA Play-Offs finals. Most online Canadian bookmakers will launch these once the two participants have been decided.
